Celebrate Spring with Alcott Adventures #Giveaway | Product Review

Today is the official first day of spring and we're celebrating with Alcott Adventures and a giveaway!

The ice and snow is gone... at least for the moment.  Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie are ready for spring and some adventures outside.  Especially with their brand new collars from Alcott Adventures.

Alcott Adventures is on a mission to offer dogs, and the people who love them, products that designed for an active lifestyle, whether that a walk around the neighborhood or travel around the world.  

Fetch Alcott Adventures and you'll find a complete line of gear and accessories to turn everyday walks into extraordinary adventures:
  • dog collars, harnesses and leashes
  • dog beds and blankets
  • dog sleeping bags and pup tents
  • Dog toys and apparel
  • dog health and wellness products
Alcott Adventures reinvented sizes for dogs to make it easy on their humans.  Generally speaking, if you buy a medium collar, you'll also use a medium in all the other Alcott products.
All of the products at Alcott Adventures have been developed by dog lovers and adventure buffs.  They're designed for ease of use, comfort, safety and practicality.
And FUN!  Can't forget the fun!  Not only will you find some fun products at Alcott, but the colors available are terrific.  Check out the pawsome pup tent and canine sleeping bag and convince me you don't want to take a doggie camping trip!

You can shop Alcott online in two ways: either by category or by adventure. There are four categories of adventures:
  • Essentials - the basics for everyday adventures
  • Explorer - the gear for enjoying the great outdoors
  • Traveler - cool stuff for traveling near or far
  • Mariner - for water powered fun
I shopped Alcott Adventures with a $50 gift code and I had a very difficult time choosing.  In fact, I've bookmarked a few things to purchase for myself later, including matching leashes and a Mariner life jacket.  I finally decided to get something that all three of my dogs could enjoy:  new dog collars.

Then, I decided that Rosie should definitely have one of these very cool dog collar charms.  Rosie is, for sure, a thrill sniffer!

I found the Alcott Adventures web site super easy to navigate and visually appealing.  Though I initially had a minor problem with the shopping cart, I queried their online customer service and received assistance within minutes. Plus, the minor glitch was fixed within 24 hours.

Shipping was speedy, too and it was no time before the order was delivered.  Here's what I received.  Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie were all three excited when their package arrived.

For Rudy, a Mariner adventure collar in vibrant blue (I'd call it turquoise) with with reflective accents and neoprene padding.  Perfect for an active dog with fun uppermost in mind like Rudy.

For Jeffie, a Traveler adventure collar in vibrant orange - though I like to think of it as "Golden Retriever" color! Also with reflective accents and neoprene padding.  Perfect for the security adventures Jeffie has every day.

For Rosie, an Essential adventure collar in vibrant red with reflective accents and neoprene padding.  Plus a Thrill Sniffer collar charm in red to match the Essential adventure collar.  Great choice for our resident vole hunter.

As I mentioned above, I've bookmarked some other things at Alcott to purchase later this spring.  Why?  Because I'm so pleased with these collars.   Very well made, sturdy, padded, reflective and fantastic colors, what's not to love.  

Fetch Alcott Adventures for some barking good canine accoutrements and necessities, so you'll be ready for your next adventure.

Best of all...  you can show your dog's four-legged adventurous spirit if you're the lucky winner of Alcott Adventures $25 gift code giveaway!
