Congratulations to the winner of last week's "Tricks and Treats" drawing. Emily T will receive a gift pack including a KissAble Toothbrush and Toothpaste kit and Dogswell Breathies Jerky Treats to help her keep up the good work of brushing her dogs' teeth! She'll also receive a $40 certificate to spend in the Get Pet Shop.
I'm very disappointed that so few of you care about your dogs' teeth! It's National Pet Dental Health Month after all. So, since so many of you are going to end up having to give your dogs pain medication when they have to get teeth removed, I decided it is best to focus this week's "Trick" on how to give your dog a pill. Watch the great video below from Howcast so you can learn how to give your dog a pill.
To be entered in this week's drawing for a "Treat" next week, respond to this week's Facebook poll "How do you get your dog to swallow a pill?"
Congratulations to the winner of last week's "Tricks and Treats" drawing. Laura Y will receive a $40 Gift Certificate to spend at any Pet Stuff location in Chicago! Thanks to everyone who showed some love :-)

I'm super excited to announce the newest weekly installment for my blog. I'm calling it "Tricks and Treats" because you (the humans) can win treats (aka prizes) when the pups perform tricks. For our first week 13-week-old Metro, a Danish-Swedish Farm dog, is donating the footage from his very first "sit" lesson.
Here's how it works:
1. Watch the video
2. Show some love
3. Be entered in a drawing
4. Tune in next week to see if you won
How do you show some love, you ask? It's easy. You can either:
- post a comment here on the blog about the video
- post a comment on the Get Pet Facebook page with a link back to this blog
- send a Tweet to @GetPetChicago with a link to this blog
- post a comment or "Like" the video directly on the Get Pet YouTube channel
And you can earn up to one entry for each form of love for a possible total of 4 entries.
Prizes will range from credits to use in the new Get Pet Shop to Gift certificates for awesome Chicago businesses.
Enjoy Metro's video and be sure to show some love before next Wednesday, February 1st for your chance to win.
Growing up in the country in Pennsylvania gave me tons of experience with animals from a very early age. I later pursued a career in horseback riding and also have experience as a veterinary technician. I have a strong passion for animals and have an uncanny ability to connect with all sorts of furry friends.
