DIY - How to personalize your Vittles Vault

Who doesn’t love personalized items?!

It could be cute, monogramed towels for the bathroom,  a personalized sticker for your laptop, or a DIY chalkboard sticker for you pet's Vittles Vault!

This DIY is super simple and fun! This roll of chalkboard adhesive is pretty big, like 6.5 feet big. Which means you can use it to personalize everything in your house! You can cut out small strips and label a bunch of stuff, or cut out a big rectangle and make a DIY erasable calendar!

Let's start with what you'll need for this project.

kibble toppers - what are they and do i need them? {Part 3 of 4}

Kibble toppers are popping up everywhere...

Many pet owners use kibble toppers, but all toppers are not necessarily equal. Like everything else, some types are better than others, and your furry friend will thank you for doing some research before you buy.

It's important to note that some brands of kibble lack essential nutrients (we won't name any names here!), which is why toppers can be beneficial.

What You’re Really Feeding Your Dog – Getting to the Bottom of What is Really in Your Dog’s Food

What you're really feeding your dog {Part 2 of 4}

Getting to the Bottom of What is Really in Your Dog's Food

You get what you pay for...

This popular saying definitely rings true when it comes to your dog’s food. Dog food that is less expensive is usually filled with unhealthy additives, binders, synthetic supplements and other undesirable elements.

Dog food that is higher in price is generally more expensive because it is made with thoughtfully sourced, real-food ingredients, which is just what your dog needs!

To prove this point, let's start by examining a few different dog foods at varying price points.

What is the Difference Between All-Natural and Organic Dog Food?

What is the difference between "All natural" and "organic" dog food? {Part 1 of 4}

It is important to remember that dog food and human food are not held to the same quality and manufacturing standards.

Although, one thing dog food and human food do have in common is the fact that the term “All Natural” really doesn’t mean anything. We live in a world where many people are becoming more health conscious, and that also translates to what they want to feed their pets. 

We rely on labels and terms like "All Natural" to help guide our decisions so we can provide our pets with the healthiest food available. When those labels are misleading, it makes our jobs as conscientious pet parents that much harder.

Top 10 Photos from our Dog Beach Photoshoot

When you're doing a photoshoot at dog beach, you never know what can happen!

We had everything planned and scheduled for a product photoshoot featuring the new Vittles Vault Travel-Tainer, the Vittles Vault Jr., and the Vittles Vault SoftStore, but then we got photobombed! 

About 15 minutes into the photoshoot, our model was looking pretty on a beach blanket when a four-month-old German Shepherd decided to come say hi! It turned out to be a blessing because this puppy was a natural model and stole the show.

When doing a photoshoot, it's important to have a firm plan, but even then, some of your best photos can happen purely by accident.​

June 23rd is Take Your Dog to Work Day, and we're celebrating!

But at GAMMA2, we're lucky enough to bring our dogs to work almost every day. We have a few dogs who come in and spend the day with us from time to time, but Chucko is pretty much a staple at our corporate office. 

Chucko has been with us at GAMMA2  for about a year. Other fun facts: He's a 4-year-old Australian Shepherd. He likes long walks on the beach and endless games of tug. He's also a huge fan of soccer, chicken jerky and tummy rubs. I mean, who isn't, right?

Watch the video below for a glimpse into his daily routine. You'll see what a productive team member he is!

What Does Vittles Vault Mean?

What Does "Vittles Vault" Mean?

Kind of a silly name, isn't it?

And try saying it 10 times fast!

Over the years, our tongue twisted friends have continuously asked us about the origin of the name.

The "Vittles Vault," in simple terms, is a ​food storage container - the term Vittles represents food, and the term "Vault" symbolizes locking in freshness and keeping the food safe from the elements and pests.

But there's more to it than that.

This puppy wants to know - shelter vs pound - what's the difference?

Shelter vs. Pound – What’s the Difference?

Shelter vs pound? what's the difference?

The question of shelter vs pound came up during a meeting.

November is "adopt a senior dog" month, and as a company, we were discussing ways to help our employees adopt a dog, cat, or any other pet needing a home. 

The question arose, "what is the difference between a shelter, a rescue, and a pound? Is it better to adopt a pet from one facility instead of the other?"
