#ShakeItForward With Your Dog During The Holidays With Iams! (Giveaway) #ChristmasGiftGuide (Rafflecopter) Ends 11/30

If you’re a fan of Talking Animals videos, you’re in for a treat!

Wildly popular Talking Animals video producer Andrew Grantham launched his newest video collaboration with IAMS called “Punk’d Puppy”, which shows what happens when you trick a dog for treats. This video gives a smile and laugh to pet lovers everywhere, but it helps pets too. IAMS will donate a bowl of food to pets in need for every video view or #ShakeItForward hashtag share.* 

The IAMS #ShakeItForward food donation starts today and runs through Dec. 31, giving pet owners and animal lovers a fun and easy way to help provide meals to nonprofit animal shelters across the country during the holiday season.

Video Background
Following last December’s popular IAMS and Andrew Grantham holiday-themed collaboration titled Singing Pets Video, IAMS is once again partnering with Grantham in a new video that highlights the fun behind tricking a dog and the brand’s Shakeables treats. Treats are a growing category for dog owners, and IAMS wanted to take this opportunity to connect with dog owners in a fun and unique social way.


About IAMS Shakeables
With IAMS Shakeables, one shake is all it takes. Shakeables are soft and meaty treats from IAMS, offering a portable treat option that helps create enjoyable and fun moments of interactions with dogs – including everyday occasions like after a walk, to training occasions like teaching a new trick or housetraining. The shake of a can signals it’s time for a treat. IAMS Shakeables are available in three meaty flavors that dogs loveClucky Me with Chicken, Un-baa-lievable with Lamb, and Gobble ‘Em Up with Turkey.


My review of IAMS Shakeables dog treats:
I went outside with my two older children, and we shook one of the cans of IAMS Shakeables chicken flavored treats (green can). Both of our beagle/pointer mixes came running! They also both loved the treats! We don't give treats to them too often because our male dog, Bandit, has a sensitive stomach. Winnie is our female, they are brother and sister! Both of our dogs just turned eight (8) years old in human years! As they were born on September 30th, 2005! So they are about 56 years old, and with more and more white hair on their faces, they are beginning to show their age. (Bandit has a cone on his head because he keeps chewing his skin around his tale and you don't want more details than that!)


The IAMS Shakeables Treats had no strong odor to them. I have had dog treats in the past that were super strong in the stink department. They are super great to use for teaching your dog new tricks! Especially if you have a little puppy, you could break them into smaller pieces to make them last longer while your training him or her! I used treats when Winnie was younger to teach her to shake! She picked it up really quick! Within a few days of working with her, she was shaking my hand!

First, go to Twitter and Tweet using the Hashtag #ShakeItForward to help provide meals to nonprofit animal shelters across the country during the holiday season!
