- Monthly Features
An early May Day tradition called for friends to leave a basket of flowers or treats on a doorstep, ring the bell and run away. This month’s special offer gives you something to leave with a friend, but you certainly don’t have to run away.
And once again, a quick word of thanks for your continued support. Over the past week, I’ve had the “pleasure” of dealing with the customer service departments of 2 major corporations. Both experiences left me scratching my head wondering why solving simple problems must become so frustrating.
It also reinforced why you will never have to put up with scripted responses or inflexible policies when dealing with Smiley Dog. Problems may be rare, but if they occur, your resolution will be swift, fair and respectful. Not at all like this past weekend’s experience!
YOUR SPECIAL OFFER
It feels good to to do something nice for a friend. This month’s offer helps put a smile on a friend’s face as well as your own.
Ask for a FREE Gift Certificate to pass along to up to 3 of your pet loving friends this month. By introducing them to Smiley Dog, you’ll be giving them the opportunity to enjoy the dependability and convenience you now take for granted.
Each Gift Certificate can be used by a friend who has not yet discovered Smiley Dog and never expires. You can now be the one responsible for bringing the joy of Smiley Dog to your friends, along with a $10 savings!
Your friendly Gift Certificates can be included with any order this month, or mailed directly to you. Just ask!
Natura Recall Expanded
A third expansion of the Natura recall announced in March was issued at the end of last month. The company is now recalling ALL dry California Natura, Evo, Innova, Healthwise and Karma dry foods produced with an expiration date of March 24, 2014 or earlier.
This effectively cleared the shelves of any product on retailer’s shelves or in your pet’s bowls. Unaffected food is now slowly becoming available, but some shortages may continue for another few weeks as the company gears up production to replace recalled product. Read more…
Orijen and Acana Availability Update
Champion Pet Foods, makers of Acana and Orijen, has confirmed that repairs have been completed and full production has resumed following their plant fire last year.
Despite this encouraging progress, it will take more time to “fill the world wide shortages that are a result of this fire.” Read more…
Health Study Raises Canine Castration Conundrum
Imagine being faced with a decision which could have dire consequences for the health of new pet. One choice condemns your pet to suffer significantly increased risk of developing certain cancers, hip dysplasia or other orthopedic problems.
The other choice leads to different set of medical problems, increased aggression and ensures you face the disapproving judgement of the pet community at large.
Which do you choose? Read more…
