Royal Canin Doggy Day Spa Pack Giveaway

Win an $80 Royal Canin Doggy Day Spa Pack!

our first giveaway

We are begin­ning our first give­away today, cour­tesy of Royal Canin. Our give­away con­test, worth $80, will run through April 21. The lucky win­ner gets: a  2.5 pound bag of Royal Canin X-SMALL dog food, Earth Bath nat­ural groom­ing wipes, Zwipes Microfiber Small Pet Tow­els (pack of 5), Trop­i­clean oral care kit, Fresh ‘n Clean oat­meal and bak­ing soda sham­poo, Li’l Pals groom­ing brush and nail trim­mer, and groom­ing lead.

How to enter

Enter the con­test with the raf­fle­copter wid­get. You can either log in through your Face­book account or enter your email address to enter. Then, click on the down arrow to the right of “+1 DO IT.” It should ask you to tell us why your dog deserves to be pam­pered (this  isn’t manda­tory, but we would love to know).  To leave a com­ment, scroll to the bot­tom of the blog, under my pic­ture, and enter your com­ment where it says “Add New Comment.”

We’d appre­ci­ate it if you would Like the Shih Tzu Sis­ters Face­book page, but that isn’t manda­tory either. That’s it!

Also, this is very impor­tant. We know the food that comes with this gift is for x-small dogs, but if you have any type of small dog, even if he or she is more than eight pounds (like shih tzus), please enter any­way! We loved every­thing in the pack­age, and we know you will too! We’ll announce the win­ner on April 22. Royal Canin will deliver it to you free of charge!

royal canin x-small nutri­tion line

Royal Canin has more than 40 years of expe­ri­ence in the ani­mal health and nutri­tion indus­try. It col­lab­o­rates with nutri­tion­ists, breed­ers, and vet­eri­nar­i­ans from around the world to come up with for­mu­las. Their dog for­mu­las include MINI (9 — 22 lbs), MEDIUM (23 — 55 lbs),  MACXI (56 — 99 lbs), and GIANT (100 and up).

They recently set out to come up with the per­fect for­mula for dogs 8 lbs. and under, result­ing in the X-SMALL nutri­tion line. Not all x-small dogs have the same needs, so the X-SMALL line includes PUPPY, ADULT, MATURE (+8), and AGING (+12).

Dr. Brent Mayabb, vet­eri­nar­ian and man­ager of edu­ca­tion and devel­op­ment at Royal Canin, explains that the new for­mu­las take into account the x-small dogs’ unique phys­i­ol­ogy, spe­cific energy needs, and extra-small jaw size, to pro­vide them with “opti­mal nutri­tion.” The for­mu­las also “con­tain pre­mium nutri­tion to sup­port heart health, highly digestible pro­teins and fibers to help reg­u­late diges­tion and pre­vent con­sti­pa­tion, and are enriched with EPA and DHA to help main­tain a beau­ti­ful skin and coat.” The kib­ble is also designed to pro­mote den­tal health, by reduc­ing tar­tar build-up as the dog chews.

To cel­e­brate the launch of its X-SMALL line, Royal Canin kicked off The Royal Canin Treat­ment sweep­stakes in late Feb­ru­ary. One lucky pet par­ent will get free dog food and groom­ing for life, along with an acces­sory shop­ping spree to pam­per their x-small dog. The sweep­stakes runs through June 1, 2012. Own­ers can enter for a chance to win at the Royal Canin website.

In addi­tion to the grand prize, own­ers also can par­tic­i­pate in The Royal Canin Treat­ment Instant Win Game for a chance to win one of more than 500 prizes for their tiny com­pan­ion. Instant Win prizes range from gift cards and toys, to travel gear, groom­ing items and more.

    Hi! I’ve just entered the com­pe­ti­tion. I would love to win the Doggy Spa gift set as I have FOUR x-small dog­gies here, so every­thing in the set would come in very handy. Three of the dogs are mine: Pogo the toy poo­dle, Casper the Bichon and Jimmy the Malti­chon. I also have Munchy the elderly Shih Tzu who is stay­ing with us for a while. I groom all the dogs myself! As you can imag­ine, it keeps me very busy and I would appre­ci­ate all the good­ies that come in the gift set. They would make life a bit eas­ier! :-)

      Four x-small dog­gies! I know exactly how that feels!! Good for you! You have such a won­der­ful vari­ety. We groom the dogs our­selves too, and it is quite the chore! But, it would be way too expen­sive to take them all to the groomer! Good luck with the raffle!

    My com­puter is not let­ting me post a new com­ment, but I wanted to write that Tater the shih tzu deserves a pam­per pack­age bea­cuse he has had a very rough start to life. Tater was saved from a high kill shel­ter, under­weight and mat­ted so badly he needed to be com­pletely shaved. He had fleas, an intesti­nal par­a­site, and other diges­tive prob­lems. Despite the obvi­ous neglect he suf­fered, he is a sweet, gen­tle boy and just wants to give kisses and receive belly rubs. Now that we have him, he is cher­ished and loved. He def­i­nitely deserves all the pam­per­ing in the world.

      Tater should have never had to go through that! Flower, Dot­tie, and Candy came from a puppy mill, and although they had a rough life, it sounds like Tater had things much worth. It is so won­der­ful for you to adopt him and give him a bet­ter life. He does deserve all the pam­per­ing in the world and we are so happy that you shared your story! Good luck with the raffle!

    (My com­puter did not let me post a com­ment as well on the raf­fle site) I think all the dogs really deserve this pack­age as well. I’ve had Yeti from when he was a puppy and his aller­gies have been a con­stant strug­gle for us to iden­tify. He’s been to the vet numer­ous times and tried dif­fer­ent foods as well. Despite all of that he is the hap­pi­est pup he can be. Yeti loves his belly rubs and trips to the park. Noth­ing will stand in his way in liv­ing his full happy doggy life. He would so appre­ci­ate win­ning this pack­age and he knows how much it would help his mommy and daddy out as well :)

    • DiFreeze

      Hello Karen! Your com­ment is where it should be! I think the raf­fle­copter is a lit­tle con­fus­ing, because it looks like you can post to it, but you got it right. Poor Yeti! I know that has to be frus­trat­ing. May I ask what he eats now? Yeti is adorable and I am so glad he has you and his dad! Good luck with the raffle.

    Hello! I love this give­away! I also have a Shih Tzu and have started a blog and face­book page about my love for them. I’ve really enjoyed get­ting to know your Shih Tzu’s through your blog. It would be so nice to win the spa pack as I love to spoil my lit­tle princess! I would like to take it one step fur­ther for you and also pro­mote this on my face­book page at http://www.facebook.com/AllThingsShihTzu?ref=tn_tnmn#!/AllThingsShihTzu . Thanks for shar­ing Di! =)

      We vis­ited your Face­book page and Liked it! Sorry it took so long to reply! The time got away from me. Good luck!

  • Angie

    Mis­ter is one spoiled pup, but he doesn’t often get pam­pered. We’d love to try and groom him at home!

    • DiFreeze

      I am glad to hear you spoil Mis­ter. Groom­ing at home can be a chal­lenge, but it is also reward­ing. Good luck!

  • ClaireMaloney8

    We have a shih tzu and found your web­site via twit­ter. We have been read­ing your blog for quite some time now and it is amaz­ing to see how far your pups have come!! I always love spoil­ing by lit­tle guy, Ted, and I think the oat­meal and bak­ing soda sham­poo would be espe­cially nice because he has very sen­si­tive skin!! Thanks :)

    • DiFreeze

      Sorry to be so late in reply­ing. We are glad you dis­cov­ered our web­site. Good luck to you and Ted!

  • Amy Lynn

    My Puppy Thor deserves to be pam­pered because he is our BABY! And what Momma doesn’t LOVE to spoil:)

    • DiFreeze

      You are right! I sure love to spoil ours. I love your puppy’s name! Good luck!

  • Tami L

    I have 3 won­der­ful Shih Tzu who are totally spoiled. First there is Gizmo who is 16.5 years young. Next is Oreo who is 11 years young and finally is Oliver Trice who is 11 weeks. The girls have been so patient with their new lit­tle brother and would love some extra spe­cial spoil­ing since a lot of my atten­tion is devoted to “train­ing” the new lit­tle fur ball.

    • DiFreeze

      I am happy to hear about your won­der­ful shih tzus and how good they are with their new brother. They sure sound like they need extra spoil­ing! Good luck!

    my dog deserves to be pam­pered because he is stun­ningly gor­geous AND his cat brother ONLY EATS ROYAL CANIN!!! His kitty brother eats Royal Canin Vet­eri­nary Rab­bit for­mula!!! We adore Royal Canin!

    • DiFreeze

      Thanks for enter­ing! Just too sweet that your dog’s kitty brother eats Royal Canin Vet­eri­nary Rab­bit for­mula. My ques­tion is if this is for rab­bits or for cats? ;-) Good luck!

    My dog deserves to be pam­pered because she is a 3 year sur­vivor of Canine Liver Dis­ease! She is such an amaz­ing pup, she is the lead model for my com­pany, Sophis­ti­cated Pup as well. We love her and she reg­u­larly eats Royal Canin!!

    • DiFreeze

      We are so happy to hear about your dog and that she has sur­vived liver dis­ease! Good luck!
