It's officially October {yay} meaning the holidays are just around the corner. As Halloween candy fills the market-aisles and all things pumpkin spice come back in season, it can be hard to always make smart, healthy choices. Particularly being that I'm big on seasonal baking { see honey apple galette }. 

So in order to stay on track we focus on creating well-balanced, nutritious meals between our festive, seasonal treats. Think green juices for breakfast mixed with a healthy combination of  veggies, grains and lean proteins- to counteract the occasional PSL or apple cider donut.

And while planning healthy meals can take a little time for us humans, making delicious and healthy choices for our fur baby is a no-brainer thanks to IAMS™. Following an IAMS™ diet takes the guesswork out of keeping our Henry dog healthy and happy- as each meal contains natural ingredients that promote skin and coat health on the outside and leave him feeling energetic and fit on the inside. 


In addition to eating well-balanced meals, we rely on a hearty amount of outdoor adventures to keep the whole family healthy this time of year. Whether it's a trip to the park or simply a walk down the street; being active together- with the mini and our pup, too- is an essential element to our health and happiness.

And being that the beach is one of our very favorite spots, we always look forward to the end of the year when our local point opens its doors to our four-legged friends- making for the perfect fall-family activity. There's nothing better than watching our Henry dog run free on the beach- chasing waves and enjoying the crisp fall air. And now that our little one is now a full-on mover and shaker, we can't wait to watch our two loves play together.


In order to help other pet parents keep their furry friends visibly healthy and happy, I've created a gift tutorial for newbie pet owners. Simply choose your favorite IAMS™ meal {or two} and add my Park Guide Printable {below} for the perfect gift to celebrate becoming a proud parent to a canine bundle of joy:


1. Purchase IAMS™ dog food of your choice in the Pet Care aisle at your local Walmart.


2. Research local dog parks, trails, dog-friendly beaches or compile a list of your tried and true faves.  

3.  Download the "Congrats! You got a dog!" printable {here}. 

Congrats! You got a dog!
