The Horizon Pillow Bed collection includes new shapes, including Pet Teepees and Chill Pads.

“Customers raved about the fabric hues we used in our Horizon Pillow Beds so much so that we decided to expand on this collection,” said Lisa Hismune, director of sales at P.L.A.Y. “Considering our Pet Teepees and Chill Pads have always been best-sellers, we knew these would be the perfect lines to utilize this print and give pet parents more options for their furry friends to curl up for naptime.”

Dogs make the world a better place and can inspire all pet owners to do the same. Treating them right with all-natural recipes serves as one way to say thank you for the joy they bring. Each pack of treats allows pet parents to step behind the camera and create their own #CookieCam whenever snack time may take place so the world can watch their pup munch away.

“We believe that snack time is one of the best ways to show our dogs both the love and nutritional excellence they deserve. With the exclusive #Cookiecam Cookies, it will now also be a time that is shared beyond just a pet parent and their pup,” said Kristof Vlaeminck, senior director of global brand marketing for Old Mother Hubbard. “We’ve long admired the work of The Dogist and we’re excited that the power of wholesome, all-natural nutrition will now be a part of the stories they share.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Old Mother Hubbard on these exclusive #cookiecam cookies. Rewarding our pups for great behavior is paramount to the training process and Old Mother Hubbard makes it easy with both a tasty and healthy treat” said Kate Speer, CEO of The Dogist. “After years of having solely The Dogist shoot joyful videos of pups chomping away, we are excited to see what our own community comes up with when they have a chance to spread the #cookiecam love with their pups too.”

#Cookiecam Cookies will be sold exclusively online at thedogist.com.
