Sniff Less, Bark More, and Give a Gift that Gives Back with Good DogmaThe 12 Days of Gifts Galore event is coming up on the 25th, and one of my all-time favorite charitable companies is sponsoring it with a great prize for my winner. The Good Dogma Company, which has been featured several times on Pretty Opinionated, is the perfect way for animal lovers to support a great cause and gift awesome gifts (or keep some amazing treasures for themselves). It was founded by Lisa and her adorable therapy dog, Kensy.

The Good Dogma Company has a wide range of gifts for any pet lover, from cute coffee mugs to gorgeous jewelry. For those who recently lost a beloved dog, they offer the Always in my Heart necklace, which is engraved with the pup’s name, so they can always be close to your heart.  The necklace was inspired by Lisa’s dog, Logan, who was with them for such a short time yet taught them a lifetime of lessons. Got a coffee or tea dog lover in your life?  They are sure to love the Woofisms Mug, I know I do! It’s one of my favorite mugs, just the right size for a large cup of coffee.

Sniff Less, Bark More, and Give a Gift that Gives Back with Good Dogma

For the Jingle Jubilee Giveaway, though, Lisa has something special for the winner: a Peppermint Bark candle from their Sniff More, Bark Less line, created through their partnership with Charity Wicks. This large jar candle is made from vegan-friendly soy beans grown in the United States. It smells just like peppermint candy. I am a huge fan of peppermint because the scent immediately helps me focus better.

Soy candles are great because they burn much slower than the standard wax candles, and they’re less likely to trigger allergies. Plus, they’re non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about the fumes harming your pets or children. Of course, with a scented candle, what really matters is how good it smells, and how long the fragrance lasts. There is nothing more annoying than dishing out money for an awesome-smelling candle, only to find that it is completely odorless before it even burns halfway down. Since soy candles burn slower and cooler, the fragrance lasts much longer.

Purchasing candles from the Sniff More, Bark Less line helps support services like therapy dog programs, pet adoption programs, and more. The Good Dogma company is all about “pawing it forward.” When you buy a gift from their store, you’re not only giving the recipient a unique experience, you’re helping animals everywhere.
