Get Up And Go Giveaway



There's nothing like summer for taking your pooch out and about. Sometimes it's a walk, going to the dog beach, going on a hike or even getting away for a couple of days.

That's why I'm happy to announce the Get Up and Go Giveaway. Part of Christmas in July, it's a prize package full of essential stuff for your lovable pooch. It's valued over $50 USD and includes:

  • A coupon for a free 6 pound bag of Innova dog food
  • A Nylabone Frisbee (flexible so it won't harm your dog's teeth)
  • A Chuck It Ball Launcher and extra balls
  • A Zinger toy set made by Kong
  • A portable dog bowl for food made by Outward Hound
  • A portable water bowl (not pictured)

It's everything you need to keep your pooch busy and active during the summer?

How To Win?

One lucky winner will win this by leaving a comment how they like to get up and get away with their dog. If you'd like an extra chance you can tweet:

"I just entered the Get Up and Go Getaway at Too Kool Doggies. #ChristmasInJuly"

Contest Rules
  1. You must have a valid e-mail address.
  2. Multiple comments and/or tweets are appreciated but only one of each will count towards the contest.
  3. This contest is open to the U.S. and Canada only.

Below, is a list of other contests being put on by other bloggers as part of Christmas in July. It's definitely worth taking a peak.

  20. Wow, I just checked into the blog and am amazed by the responses. Abbi & Julie D., I totally love hiking with dogs but don't live near a dog park.

    Wise Owl Designs and vhubler, my dog Homer loves to chew up frisbees more than anything. The other two don't really bother.

    Anonymous, that must be just adorable.

    Just Coupons, that sounds beatiful. All We have are flat lands here.


    TonyaHopkins, that's one game that all of my dogs love. It really comes in handy sometimes.

    Roswell, dogs are so entertaining when they're in the water.

    Kari, the park is a beautiful place for that. I love taking them there both on leash and off.
    Michele, that's so cool. I bet it's quite a picture.

    Terra H., you guys do keep busy. That's fantastic. It's a great release of energy for a dog of that type.

    maxfate, that sounds lovely. With the heat these days, I can only imagine.

    I appreciate hearing about all of your dogs. :D

  21. Bullitt and I love our early evening trips, whenever the weather is good, to the dog park.

    He has made a lot of friends and they have a hoot of a time playing 'tug' together.

    It gives him a chance to run free and play with his little friends.

    I really like how they have our dog park laid off.

    There is one end for big dogs, one end for small dogs, and one in the middle for all dogs with fencing in between.

    Bullitt goes in the 'little dog' end.

    Thanks for offering this great prize package. ~Pauline

  25. Sadly, My littlest dog ( a yorkie) is afraid of riding in the car and shakes so badly we cant take him far. (plus he is only 6 lbs) BUT he does love to go for walks to the marsh which is only a couple blocks away and loves to investigate whatever cricket or toad might be lurking. And bark at everything that moves. Our other dog, a mini schnauzer LOVES to ride and thinks she is top dog...well, she is. Her fave thing is to go camping and "get out of Dodge" where she can run and bark as much as she wants. HOPEFULLY we will be able to do this year yet!

    thanks!

  42. Pauline, my dogs go in the little dog area too. My biggest dog likes to sho the bigger dogs who's boss.

    Anonymous, it must be beautiful staying out under the stars. It sounds like a great time. I'm more of a city girl.

    I can only imagine how that would be. I had a cat who would get so afraid about car rides they would continuously meow. It sounds like you've found the perfect happy medium. The two of them must make quite a combo. :D

  43. Mrs. Smitty, it seems like campingis quite popular here. I totally agree that it's much better than kenneling your dog.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cloud10277, so do I, but I tend to take them in the late afternoon.

    Heather, Bostons are so cute. I love it when dogs are swimming. They always look like they're having such a blast.

    Missy, that's so cool. It's a great way to spend time with your dog and get him out of the house.

    Grace, mastiffs are so cool. My brother has one and she's a total homebody. They must look beautiful in motion.

    Kristen, it must be an excellent workout. I live kind of far from the lake so I don't go there as often as I'd like.

    KatK, it seems like you're daughter's pup keeps you quite entertained.

    Thank you all for sharing here.

  45. Our dog Marley is a Yellow Lab mix of eight months old.
    He is really intelligent and has been easy to house train and leash train and loves to ride.
    So far this summer we have introduced him to overnight trips, days at the lake, swimming and hiking.
    He is just like one of our children and goes with us where ever we go.

  56. @Amy Sue, thank you. :) Dogs really have a blast at the park. I have to take mine there more often before summer is up.

    @RuthHill74, some really excel at that. That's all my dog Homer loves to do.

    @Jessica, That's really cool. Do you have mountains in your area?

    @scottsgal That's adorable! I can just picture them wearing their floats. :D

    @Monica, it's a great time to walk dogs. There aren't as many people or cars where I live.

    @amyD Nothing beats being able to see your dogs run off-leash.

    @Temperance You're welcome. :) It must be quite a picture.

    @Judy, I know how that goes. My dog Cookie is very similar to your Lady. All I have to do is ask her "Do you want to go for a ride in the car?" and I get a reaction from her that's more animated than when she gets a treat. :)

    I'd love to win this for a friend who just got a new puppy and they already have a pooch. My friend is training for a marathon and I'm sure she will be taking those pooches for runs with her! They are sure to keep her on her toes! :) It makes me really want a dog for myself! :)

  118. @Mippy, I can tell you they are great companions and are game for any activity (although it's best if they run when they're over a year-old).

    @amied027 Rowdy is a great dog name. I can so imagine that. Some dogs get so carried away that we get carried away as a result. ;)

    @KrissyMcCoy, sometimes playtime is the best thing you can do.

    @Denise Louise seems like a fitting name for that type of dog. She knows how to have a good time without breaking a sweat. Now that's talent. ;)

  124. Mr. Renfield and I love to go shopping at Petco where he gets his pedicure. He is a white and gray maltipoo. He likes road trips and likes to bring his pillow and blanket to make a fort in the back seat. He takes his Snoopy cup to fill with ice water!
