Over the years, Treat A Dog has partnered with dozens of dogs and their humans! We take pride in our Treat A Dog Pack and wanted to share some of the members with the rest of our community. We would like to introduce you to some of the members of the paw-sitively awesome Treat A Dog Pack!
Nika and Kira are two Siberian Huskies living in Wisconsin with their owners Katlin and Jonathan. They enjoy everything about life including daily runs, hiking at their local state parks, paddle boarding, fostering and volunteering through their local rescue, Fetch WI Rescue, attending dog festivals and dog-friendly events, and exploring their city. When the weather gets cold, the dog sled comes out, and Nika and Kira especially love pulling their owners through the snow and lounging in the freezing temperatures until they are forced to come inside. The best part about this pair is adventurous, sassy, fun, and outgoing personalities, which always keep their owners on their toes and laughing. Life is too short to not live like a Husky!
Jones is a 2-year-old red merle Australian Shepherd. He lives with his mom and dad right outside of Dallas, Texas in a city called Plano. Jones loves to play tug-o-war, catch, and will do anything for a peanut butter filled kong. Jones also really enjoys when mom and dad bring in a foster from a local Aussie rescue for him to play with. His biggest identifier is his one ear up, one ear down look! It makes him unique and really matches his happy-go-lucky personality. One interesting thing about Jones – he was a surprise birthday present for his mom who had desperately wanted an Aussie for years and had his name picked out long before he was born! Although he sheds like crazy, his parents wouldn't trade the dog hair all over for anything.
This is Remi. She is a 2-year-old Black Labrador Retriever with the sweetest little puppy-dog eyes. She loves everyone, but her partner in crime is her 3-year-old human sister. Remi loves spending time with her family, chewing bones, and playing with her stuffed toys. When she isn’t playing, she is cuddling with her Mom or snoozing on her Treat A Dog bed.
Forrest and Jameson are biological Goldendoodle brothers born on February 25th, 2015 and December 7th, 2016. They love to snuggle!

The dog days of summer are here! And that means the days are jam-packed with hours of sunshine that are perfect for play sessions with our pets. But when the temperatures rise to record highs during the hot summer months, it’s important to keep in mind that our four-legged friends are more susceptible to heat exhaustion when exposed to heat for long periods of time. When dogs overheat, it can lead to detrimental and even fatal consequences. So, it’s important to take measures to keep our furry friends cool during the piping hot summertime, including making sure they get plenty of water and keeping the house cool. Another very effective way to keep our pups cool is to invest in a cooling mat.
