      That travel gear pack is pretty popular. We are huge Ruffwear fans and the sleeping bag and pad are AWESOME! Good luck in the giveaway!

  31. Emily Tronetti November 28, 2016 at 3:40 pm - Reply

    There are so many great prizes, I honestly can’t decide which one I’d like best! BUT if I had to pick, I would go with the Training package, because training dogs (whether it’s my own dogs, shelter dogs or client dogs) is what I love to do!

    • SimonDawg November 29, 2016 at 4:14 pm - Reply

      The good news is that they all have treats but a fabulous trainer needs a fabulous bag of tools! Good luck in the #houndsandholidays giveaway!

  32. Sandy Weinstein November 28, 2016 at 7:22 pm - Reply

    the Holistic Goodies is my favorite because i go to a homeopathic vet and use homeopathic and holistic items and dog food.

    • SimonDawg November 29, 2016 at 4:02 pm - Reply

      The Holistic Prize Pack is a wonderful set of great products! Wishing you lots of luck in the giveaway! 🙂

  35. Jessica @YouDidWhatWithYourWiener November 30, 2016 at 10:15 am - Reply

    I would like the travel prize package of course. We have an old version of the Ruffwear Highlands bed but it’s not really big enough for both dogs to sit on. I like to lay it on the snow during winter hiking breaks so the dog’s feet don’t get too cold. I would love to have a second one and the newest version.

    • SimonDawg November 30, 2016 at 5:13 pm - Reply

      We are really liking the sleeping bag and the insertable pad – nicer than my bag and pad! 😉

  36. allison hoffman November 30, 2016 at 4:07 pm - Reply

    My dog would love all those prizes!

    • SimonDawg November 30, 2016 at 5:14 pm - Reply

      I know, right?!? We’re kind of disappointed that we aren’t allowed to enter our own giveaway 😉

  37. Kristen B November 30, 2016 at 4:43 pm - Reply

  43. anna pry December 1, 2016 at 9:29 pm - Reply

    they all look awesome but i would pick the training package because my daughter wants to be a dog trainer

      There are some amazing behavior and training programs for your daughter to explore. Best of luck to her in that endeavor and best of luck to you in the giveaway!

  44. Arlinda December 2, 2016 at 12:18 am - Reply

    I’m not sure which one I would pick. We have six dogs and I know they would love any of these toys, treats, food. Maybe not so much any grooming products LOL

    • SimonDawg December 2, 2016 at 9:56 am - Reply

      They are all such great prize packages! Six dogs?!?! I thought three was a handful 😉

  45. Linda Szymoniak December 2, 2016 at 3:59 pm - Reply

    All the packages are great! While I’d want to pick the Hollistic Goodies package, I think my dogs would want to overrule me and pick the Treats and Food package. I have three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds and they are very food oriented!

    • SimonDawg December 4, 2016 at 3:43 pm - Reply

      Ha! Gotta love the food motivated pups! 😉 Good luck in the giveaway 🙂

    All the packages are amazing. My dog will never turn down anything edible so would love treats & food. But I think the travel or holistic or not quite DIY would be great too. Basically, any prize is an amazing prize!
