Are You on LinkedIn?

First, let me admit that I am a “technosaur”: a soon-to-be-extinct individual who has failed to evolve with technology.

So my question to the blog world is this: What social media do you use to promote your business?

Kona’s Canine Cookies has a website, a blog, a Facebook page, and I (Lisa Hayes) have a LinkedIn account. Are there other tools I should be using to build my dog treat business?

Any input is welcome.



We’re Going Organic!

Kona’s Canine Cookies has always been natural – we use fresh, wholesome products that contain no preservatives or added ingredients.

And now we’re taking it one step further. We are going to use only organic — and when possible, locally sourced — products. Organic rice flour, oats, peanut butter, and vegetables.

Why? Because we believe it is the right thing to do not only for our pets but also for our planet. We hope you agree.

And remember, our treats are also gluten-free and vegetarian.


Don’t Forget!

We’re having a Yappy Hour at Out of Site Wines in Vienna next Saturday, April 12, from 1-4 pm.

Stop by to say hi, try some of their wine and then let your four-legged friend sample a Kona Canine Cookie. We’ll have a few bags on hand for sale, as well as information on how to sign up for a monthly treat subscription through the wine store.

Hope to see you there.


We Need Your Input

We here at Kona’s Canine Cookies are considering a new ordering option: a subscription. This would be like a “treat of the month” club in which you could place a standing order for regular monthly delivery. You would pick the type of treats and the number of bags, as well as the length of the subscription. For example, you could choose to have two bags of peanut butter treats delivered for the next six months.

We’re still pondering the details, but wanted to put the idea out there and get some feedback from Kona’s friends and customers. Comments? Thoughts?


Pet Reading Material

Here is a random question that just popped into my head. If your pet could read, what genre of books would be his or her favorite? Would it be romance novels, classics, poetry, science fiction, …?

Bandit would probably read historical fiction. Kona, on the other hand, likes to keep up with current trends, so she would probably read whatever was on the Amazon best-seller list.



Help Us Spread the Word

We’ve seen way too many articles about the bad things that go into pet food and pet treats. Whether it’s fillers and additives or potentially tainted chicken, there are some things that definitely should not be in your pet’s treats.

At Kona’s Canine Cookies, we use only wholesome ingredients: rice flour and oats. Then we add peanuts or fresh fruits and veggies.

Oh, but we do add one filler. A large helping of love.

Please help us spread the word about our treats by liking and sharing our Facebook page.



A New Ordering Option

We’re trying something new at Kona’s Canine Cookies.

Now you can choose what flavors you want in your Three-Package Sampler. As before, you can receive one of each – one package of pumpkin, one package of veggie and one package of peanut butter treats. But now you have the option to mix and match. Choose three peanut butter, two peanut butter and one veggie, two veggie and one pumpkin…You get the idea. And it’s still the discount price of $15.
