Baxter Getting Nudges 2 #NudgeThemBack

Our Baxter may be small, but he is a HUGE part of our family. He’s also BIG on personality. He is our show-off, attention-seeking, funny as a monkey, fur baby. He is the perfect example of why dogs are referred to as man’s best friend. And his nutrition is important to us. Not just his dog food, but his treats as well. I’m very happy that I found the new Nudges® Grillers and Sizzlers at Walmart the other day.

Baxter is thrilled, too. I’ve never seen him so excited over a treat before since he came into our lives.

He is crazy over the Nudges® Grillers and Sizzlers. His favorites are the Steak Grillers and the Beef and Cheese Sizzlers.

We are more than happy to give him Nudges® Grillers or Sizzlers… it’s just a small way for us to reward (thank) him for his unconditional love for us. Nudges® Steak Grillers and Beef and Cheese Sizzlers are also a great way for us to show HIM our unconditional love for him.

We do love that pup and couldn’t imagine our little family without him.

I can tell you that our son is crazy about his dog and may or may not refer him as his brother (he is an only child and used to want a sibling). They do pick at each other like siblings from time to time and I have to separate them. But they love each other.

Baxter is so protective of our son and this makes us love him even more. We also want Baxter to be around a long time, so showing him we love him is very important to us.

There are 4 key needs that dogs have (hmmmm, humans too, now that I think about it):

Physical Needs

  • Nutrition – high-quality treats like Nudges® are…
  1. Made in the USA with only USA-sourced protein
  2. Real Meat as #1 ingredient
  3. “Real food-inspired”
  4. No artificial flavors or fillers (natural ingredients)
  5. Real meaty texture, appearance & smell
  • Grooming
  • Exercise

Emotional needs

  • Socialization to other animals

Mental needs

  • Dogs get bored too, give them toys that make them figure out how to get a treat out
  • Play games with them that will make them think

Social needs 

  • Dog friendships
  • Give them plenty of attention

I can’t wait for him to try the new Jerky Cuts value size (36oz) at Walmart, I know he’s going to love them, too.

So to show him gratitude and, well… spoil him a little, we give Baxter Nudges® Wholesome Dog Treats to nurture the strong relationship we have with him. I don’t know of a dog more deserving!

  1. Your Baxter is adorable. My mom’s maltese passed away recently, but she would have loved Nudge’s Dog Treats.
