Here below I'll cover a number of essential tools/things/stuff that will definitely make your dog's life (and yours for that matter) a lot more fun
Dog Bike Trailer
When you go out for bike rides, it’s too hard for your dog to keep up on a leash. Not only that, but it’s more dangerous for you and your pet. He can dart in front of the bike and the leash can cause you to wreck.
Or, he can suddenly lunge and yank the bike over. Then there are the days when it’s just too hot for him on the pavement. Or maybe your pet is too young or too old to comfortably go out with you on a leash while you ride your bike.
There’s an easy solution that lets you still enjoy your bike rides as well as the company of your beloved pet. You can add a Dog Bike Trailer to the rear of your bike. This trailer has an eye-catching design with a focus on safety that makes it look like a cute, compact car.
It comes with strong suspension, so once you attach it, it’s going to be a smooth ride both for your pet and yourself. You can use this durable trailer repeatedly for your many adventures with your dog.
You can get it in a large or medium size and the trailer will support both. The frame of the trailer is made of aluminum, which means that it has the toughness you need without being heavy like steel frames are.
This means that the trailer is going to flow behind you rather than you feel like you’re having to really pull it. There’s plenty of options for your dog to be able to see what’s going on around him as well as give you easy access to getting the dog in place, thanks to the zip doors.
There are four doors in all. The trailer is also designed with a sunroof that you can remove. This is a multi-purpose trailer. If you’re going to be outdoors camping or hiking, you can easily take off the wheels and use it to house your pet.
The bottom of the trailer is waterproof, so if your dog has an accident, it won’t leak through. The mesh on the trailer is made of tough material that won’t give in or tear if your dog gets his claws in them.
The trailer is sturdy and strong enough to be able to safely carry a dog up to 165 pounds. The shell of the trailer is made of canvas, so it’s resistant to tears and scratches.
The four sides being able to zip all the way make this one of the easiest trailers for you be able to get your dog in. When you’re ready to travel with it in your car or to store it, once you take the wheels off, it flattens out easily. The inside of the trailer doesn’t come with a dog pad or cushion, so you’ll want to add that or a blanket for your pet’s comfort.
There are many reasons to buy a dog stroller and all of them benefit both you and your precious pet. Dog strollers can be used protect your dog from the weather. When you want to run a quick errand and it’s snowing or raining outside, you can simply put your pet in the stroller and keep him warm and dry.
Many people want to run or jog consistently and take their small dogs along. But they find that their little one tires out pretty quickly because he’s not as big as a human. So you end up carrying him back home.
But the OxGord Pet Stroller Easy Walk Folding Travel Carrier Carriage can enable you to put your pet inside, where he’ll enjoy the ride and you can get in your workout. If the hot sun is beating down on the pavement, this can burn the sensitive pads on your dog's feet.
But if he’s safely inside the stroller, you don’t have to worry about him getting injured. Also, dogs that travel in strollers are less likely to be attacked by other pet owner’s dogs.
This stroller has many features, but still manages to be lightweight. It’s a certified stroller, which means that it passes the required safety guidelines put in place for strollers.
The stroller offers a lot of convenience for humans who use it to take their pets around. It has two cup holders so that you can take a refreshment or two along if you need to. Inside the stroller, there are seat belts for leashes, which prevent your dog from being able to just leap out of it and take off running.
There are security brakes on the back of the stroller that you can set so it doesn’t roll backward. It has a hooded covering to keep inclement weather from affecting your pet – including the hot sun.
This can help keep your pet from overheating during the summer hours. The hood on the stroller is peaked, which allows bigger dogs to be able to sit up, though there is a limit on the size of the dog you can use this with.
The hood has a mesh window when it’s in the down position. This keeps insects like bees or wasps from getting in and irritating your pet. There is an area under the stroller where you can put things your pet might need - such as his toys or treats or some water.
The stroller is roomy enough for two to three small dogs or a medium sized dog. When you’re done using it for the day, it folds up for easy storage. It’s so simple that you can do it with one hand. It’s the perfect choice when you want to spend time outside with your pet while keeping him safe and happy.
Dog Car Ramp
Dogs will exuberantly jump when you tell them to, even when the height might be more than they can handle. Many owners think that dogs can easily take on high jumps. But dogs can injure their head from a fall, pull a muscle, throw out their back, and basically get any kind of injury that a human can from a fall.
One of the most common ways that dogs are injured is when they’re trying to jump in or out of a vehicle. That’s why you need to invest in a Dog Car Ramp. This way, you can make sure that your pet is protected.
This ramp has a walkway design. That means that it’s wider than a lot of dog ramps. This helps your pet feel more comfortable because he feels like he has more room. The sides of the ramp are slightly raised, which not only gives a pet more stability, but lets him feel secure as he walks up or down the length of it.
The ramp is good for use with any kind of dog, but some dogs will benefit even more from using it. Puppies are notorious for not being able to judge the distance from a vehicle to the ground.
You can use the ramp to teach a puppy how to walk up and down to get in and out of your vehicle rather than just jumping. Older dogs want to go with you and they still want their independence, but jumping into the car can reach a point where they just can’t manage it.
Their hips don’t work as well as they used to - and it causes them pain to jump. So when it’s time to get in, they’ll either struggle or look to you to help pick them up and put them in.
By having the ramp, you can allow them to freely come and go out of your vehicle. Plus, you protect your back from the strain if it’s a large dog. Even if your dog is extra large, the ramp can still handle his size.
It can be used by a dog all the way up to 300 pounds. The ramp extends from its collapsed position of 41.5 inches up to 70 inches. It’s pretty lightweight at 16 pounds as far as ramps go - even with all the room and strength that it has.
The tread on the ramp is the Shur-Foot technology, which is designed to keep your dog from slipping. So even if he’s not as agile as he once was or his feet are wet or he has mud on his paws, he can still stay safely upright and won’t slip.
The top and bottom ends of the ramp have non-slip feet. So once you place it where you want it to go, it will stay there. The edge of the ramp isn’t sharp, so it’s safe for your pet, your home, your car and yourself. You can easily train your dog to use the ramp by using the “treat for obeying” method or the clicker training method.
Dog Carrier Sling
Puppies and small dogs alike love the iPet Hands-Free Reversible Small Dog Sling - and once you get one, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it before. These are amazing helpers for pet owners.
You can put your small dog or puppy inside of it and it frees up your hands. This allows you to do other things when you’re at home or on the go. If you’re trying to get out of the house with your pet in the mornings, you have the dog, your keys, maybe your coffee and whatever else you’re taking with you.
On a regular leash, you can bet that your dog is going to dart in front of you and in a quick second, you’re going to be tangled up in a leash. The sling allows you to keep your pet with you, keep your hands free, and keep him safe - all at the same time.
The sling works great if you want to go out for a walk, but your pet isn’t well enough or was injured and can’t bear to be away from you. Keeping him close to you will help comfort your pet.
A great feature this dog carrier sling has is that your pet will be so comfortable in the material that it instantly calms him whenever he’s upset or overexcited. The sling fits snugly across your upper body and depending on how you arrange it, can rest on the front or the side of your body.
This lets your dog enjoy your closeness as well as your body warmth. Many puppies need that constant contact in order to feel safe - especially if you just adopted him. You can use the sling in many different situations, including if you’re traveling with him.
The product holds the dog as securely as if he were inside a kangaroo pouch and the soft material it’s made from makes most dogs want in the sling even when you’re not wearing it.
It’s made of cotton and a blend of polyester that you can wash in the machine - but make sure you use cold water only. It has reversible sides and can be worn on either side of your body.
To keep your pet secure, there’s a safety clasp that keeps your puppy or dog from being able to leap out suddenly. There is a weight limit restriction on the sling for both your protection and the dog’s. You can only use it for dogs that are 12 pounds or less.
When you’re not using the sling, you can hang it on a doorknob somewhere or lay it flat. It’s one of the best investments that you can make for yourself and your pet when you want to take him with you. While there are many great features about the dog carrier sling, keep in mind that it doesn’t have an adjustable strap. It’s all one length.
Dog Life Jacket
Just like adults and children, a dog needs a life jacket when he’s going to be out around a large body of water or in a boat. Most people assume that dogs are made to swim and that in any type of water condition, they’ll be fine.
But that’s incorrect. Not all dogs swim well. Some larger dogs such as Greyhounds, are longer and thinner - which means they don’t have the same amount of body fat that other dogs have.
This works against them when they’re in water since fat helps dogs float as well as regulate their body temperature. Larger, thinner dogs can struggle in the water. A dog life jacket can save the life of any dog.
Puppies are often full of energy and exuberant. They’ll leap into the water after something faster than you can blink. But no matter how much energy they have, a puppy is no match for long swimming sessions.
Any dog - whether he’s a puppy or he already has gray around his snout - can reach the point where they get tired while they’re swimming. Just like humans, when a dog becomes tired, it can make swimming difficult.
Plus, if he’s injured or leaps from the boat when you’re zipping along the lake, you want him to hang on until you can turn the boat around - and you want to be able to easily spot him in the water.
A life jacket can give your dog the time he needs - plus, they’re highly visible. The handles on the back center of the jacket provide stability so that you can grip it in order to be able to lift your pet if you need to.
The dog life jacket comes in a variety of easy to see colors. It has strips on it that reflect in both sunlight and in the dark so that you can spot your pet when you’re around or in the water.
The jacket has the kind of support that your dog needs to be able to keep his head from going under the water while he’s swimming. It’s simple to get on your pet thanks to the buckles and once you’re done on the water, it comes off easily as well. The flotation ability for the product provides the same safety - whether your pet is a small dog or a large one.
Plus, the life jacket provides your dog with insulation that can help keep him warm until you can get him out of the water if he accidentally falls in. If you’re going to be walking the dog before you get on the boat, you can put a leash on the life jacket to do that before you get started on your outing. Investing in a life jacket for your dog could end up saving the life of your beloved pet.
Dog Paw Protection Wax
Some pet owners don’t realize that a dog’s paws have to have protection year ‘round. When dogs walk on sand - whether it’s beach sand or regular yard sand - the granules can rub the pads and cause irritation.
In the summertime, this sand gets extremely hot - so hot that it can actually cause external burns all over the pad. When this happens, the pet will find it difficult to walk. He may adjust the way he tries to move around, which can then lead to hip and joint problems.
That’s why you want to use Musher's Secret Pet Paw Protection Wax. This wax coats your dog’s paws and keeps them protected. If you’re concerned about putting the product on your dog and having him slip and slide all over your tile floors, don’t be.
The wax won’t make your dog slide - even if he’s running or jumping on the tile. Even if you don’t take your dog to places like the beach (where the sand gets ultra hot), you still need to protect his paw pads.
Dogs can get environmental irritants like the salt that workers put on sidewalks or the streets when there’s a snow or ice storm. The chemical irritants in that salt can burn your dog’s pads just like walking on hot sand can.
When you put the wax on, it prevents the salt from damaging his paws. Plus, an added bonus is that when the temperatures get too cold, the wax protects his pads from cracking.
Dryness and certain health conditions can cause a dog’s pads to crack and it becomes painful for him to walk. His pads can even bleed. This wax coats his pads and helps prevent those painful cracks.
The product is thick and provides your pet with protection - but it’s not so thick that it makes your dog unable to grip the ground. Your dog can still go on hikes with you, on walks in the park, or wherever you normally take him.
Not only does the product keep your dog safe from hot sand, but it protects from the hot pavement as well. Plus, he’ll be protected against rough terrain and ice burns. The wax protects his feet like he’s wearing dog shoes - only it’s a lot more comfortable and better for him to use.
There are no harsh chemicals in the wax. It’s natural and made up of organic materials. It’s a non-toxic protectant that your dog will be glad to have on. To use, you just put on a thin layer of the wax, making sure that you get between the toe area. The wax does go on wet, but dries fast.
Dog Supply Travel Bag
When you’re traveling, you want to make sure that your pet is taken care of just like you are. If you’re like most people, there’s not room in your luggage for all the stuff your dog needs.
Plus, it’s handy to have all these items in one place. You can have that with the Dog Supply Travel Bag. This is such a well-organized system that there really is a place for everything.
You can easily fit everything that you need for a week-long trip with your pet. And best of all, the travel bag is designed in such a way that it meets the airline guidelines for travel bags.
This one even comes with a bone shaped ID tag that you can label. There’s a pull up handle on the product that makes taking it anywhere easy. Plus - that handle has a comfortable sleeve that goes over it, so holding onto it is comfortable.
The bag’s shoulder strap is adjustable. The back comes with a mesh pocket that enables you to see what you’ve stored in there. You want to put things in here that you might need quickly - such as your dog’s leash.
The bag has zippered areas which helps to keep everything in its place. There’s a divider inside. This is what keeps the food carriers in place and prevents them from rolling around inside the bag and making a mess.
Inside the product, you’ll also see a pocket that gives you a secure area for storing items you might need for your pet. You can put things like food measuring cups there or any of his grooming utensils or medications if he takes those.
There are lined carriers inside that you can use to hold your pet’s food or you can fill them with treats if you’re planning on buy food when you reach your destination. The travel bag comes with a placemat to help keep mealtime mess at a minimum - as well as bowls for your pet’s food and water.
These bowls are made of collapsible silicone. This makes storing them easy because they don’t take up a lot of room. Another feature with these is that they’re dishwasher safe.
These items have an area that’s located in the front flap of the bag so that you can get to them quickly. You can store a total of about 10 cups of food or treats if you want to. The bag is intended for travel with small dogs. Though it holds a lot of stuff and is strong, the bag still manages to be lightweight.
Soft Reflective No Pull Harness
If you have a dog, you’re going to want to have a harness for him. You’ll want to get a quality product like the Soft, Reflective No Pull Harness. You can find a harness for any size dog and many people prefer them over traditional leashes.
The reason that you want to use this harness is because it can help prevent your dog from injuring his neck or trachea. Most dog owners don’t realize that when their dog lunges against a leash, the collar yanks into his trachea and can cause damage.
When you use a harness like the No Pull, it takes the pressure off of the neck and trachea and prevents those injuries. When you use a leash with your harness, you give the dog more stress absorption since the pull is absorbed through their upper body rather than concentrated on one area.
This particular harness is for use with big dogs. Measure around your dog’s rib cage area to make sure that your dog fits the girth of the harness - which is 26-36”. The harness comes with a welded D-ring, which improves control when you’re walking your pet.
The nylon handle is padded - plus it’s strong and durable - which not only helps when you’re walking him, but it’s also good for training purposes. You get better control using the harness rather than a leash.
So if your dog sees a rabbit and wants to run off after it, you can just grab the handle and keep your dog under your control. Even the best trained dogs can become excited and want to run after something. The handle gives you a quick response option to that.
The material of the harness is breathable, so you don’t have to worry about your dog getting too hot wearing it. Plus, it’s also fast drying - so if your dog jumps into the water while wearing it, the harness won’t stay wet all day.
There are reflective safety bands on the harness, which makes your dog easier to see when there’s poor lightning or it’s evening. The harness also has parachute clasps, which make it easy and fast to put the harness on or to take it off.
These straps can be adjusted so that they’re a comfortable fit for your dog. The chest plate is padded to offer extra comfort for your dog, but you can take that off if you want to.
This harness is useful for helping to prevent injuries to yourself or your pet because - unlike a regular collar and leash combo that can trip you or your dog - this harness is less likely to tangle a leash.
Thanks to the sturdiness of the harness and the handle, if you need to quickly remove your dog from a threatening situation, you can simply pull back on that handle or use it to help lift your dog.
Dog Training Pouch
Dogs are wonderful companions, but they have to be properly trained. Otherwise, you end up with a dog that can have an attitude problem, difficulties socializing with other humans and other animals and a dog that can wreak havoc in your home.
You need to make sure that an active lifestyle is part of your dog training routine. Your pet needs the exercise - and he needs to be exposed to various situations outside of your home in order to be taught how to behave.
While you’re out and about, you’ll need to take a variety of items with you. Your pockets can only hold so much of your own stuff - much less your pet’s. That’s why there’s the Dog Training Pouch.
It can hold everything that you need when you’re training your pet. Part of training a dog is discouraging bad behavior while praising and rewarding good behavior. Your pet will quickly learn what’s acceptable and what’s not when you use the reward method.
For that reason, you’ll want to use treats. But if you don’t have them handy, then you miss the opportunity to reinforce his good actions. With the Dog Training Pouch, you can have the treats right at hand within easy reach.
You simply dip your hand into the bag, pull out a treat and gain a valuable teaching moment. Dogs are intelligent creatures, but they’re simple when it comes to making the connection between a reward and behavior.
If several minutes pass between his action and the reward, he won’t remember what he’s being praised for. But when you have the bag with you, that won’t happen. This pouch fits easily around your waist, thanks to the adjustable waistband.
Or you can attach it to your belt. It even goes across your shoulder if that’s the way that you want to wear it. The pouch contains storage compartments to make dog training an easy endeavor.
It has room to hold enough treats for your outdoor time together. It can also hold a ball or toy for your dog, plus other items for him. When you don’t need access to the pouch, all you have to do is close the drawstring to keep everything neatly inside.
One feature about the pouch that dog owners rave about is the poop bag dispenser that’s designed on the outside of the pouch. When your pet goes to the bathroom, you can just whip out a bag and quickly deal with it - no more searching for a bag. After you pick up the poop, you close the bag and attach it to one of the D-rings.
These bags are not included. You have to bring one from home or buy a supply of them. The pouch is made of nylon, so it’s tough and long lasting enough to be used in any kind of weather - even rain.
There’s a mesh pocket where you can put your cell phone, your car keys and more. Or you can use the zippered pocket behind the mesh one. Training your pet will be a breeze when you have everything that you need at your fingertips.
Pup Step Stairs
If you have an area or an object like a sofa or bed that’s higher than your dog’s ability to safely jump on it, you can bet that’s still not going to deter him. Dogs, whether they have long legs or short legs, want to roam every space where they live.
They don’t want to stay off the furniture like the sofa or a bed even though it’s out of their reach. So they’ll jump. Jumping affects all dogs - whether they’re large or small.
Large dogs take the brunt of a jump on their back legs which can cause strain. Little dogs end up with back strain, joint pain and spinal strain when they jump on objects that are too high for them.
You want them to able to do what they want safely. For that reason, you should invest in Pup Step Stairs for any large item or area where you dog likes to jump.
Step stairs give dogs the help they need and they’re good for puppies, adult dogs, senior dogs and dogs with health problems. When your dog gets older and his joints get stiff, he still wants to be able to jump onto the sofa beside you or to sleep in bed near you.
It can be heartbreaking to witness a dog’s cry of anxiety when he’s no longer physically able to get close to the person he loves. When you use step stairs, your dog is protected from the pain to his joints that are associated with jumping on objects too high for him.
Plus, you’ll give your dog back his ability to go where he wants if he’s become too old to jump. The stairs also help prevent back strain in humans by allowing them to stop lifting their pets off and on high objects.
What’s good about these steps is that they’re designed with your pet’s safety in mind. Many competing brands have open ended sides as well as an open back, like what you’d see in a regular kitchen step stool.
Those are dangerous for pets. Your dog needs enclosed stair steps. Otherwise, his legs can slide off the sides of the steps and he’ll get injured. Most dogs realize this and are hesitant to climb open ended stairs.
You can help them be safe and feel secure when they want to reach something thanks to the design of these steps. These steps have slightly raised sides so that your dog won’t have to fret about falling off.
They’re strong despite how lightweight they are at 5 pounds. When you set the steps up, they can easily support small or bigger dogs - even those over 120 pounds.
It comes already assembled, so there’s nothing for you to put together. There are tread covers on each of the steps, so that even if your dog climbs with his feet wet, he won’t slip.
Emotional Support Dog ID Tag
Service dogs can help people manage daily life in a way that’s as stress free as possible, given the condition that they have. Under the heading of service dogs are dogs that offer emotional support.
These dogs are companion animals that not only make their owner feel safe, but can often help give them comfort for different types of psychological or emotional struggles. Just like a service dog that performs tasks, an emotional support dog has to be qualified.
The owner has to be diagnosed with a reason for needing the emotional support dog. Usually a letter is then given to the person who is struggling with the condition. But there are many businesses, officials and airlines that unfortunately don’t recognize emotional support dogs under the Disability Act.
So these owners end up often having to produce their letter of disability proof and they get hassled when they take their dog along wherever they go. This is why you want to get an ID for your dog like the Emotional Support Dog ID Tag.
Usually just having the ID is enough to stop you from getting hassled when you have your animal with you. This tag is compliant with the rules that outline disability service animal ID guidelines.
Once you have the ID, it can prevent you from being stopped and asked for proof of paperwork when you’re traveling - such as by airline travel. The tag is TSA compliant. The ID clearly shows your dog as an emotional support dog.
It identifies your dog by its name and service animal registry number. This alone is often enough to whisk you through any questions or holdups at businesses or in airports. The ID will also contain your name and images of places that you’re legally allowed to access with your service animal.
The places identified on the ID include places where food is served, airports, hotels, trains, boats or ships, public buildings. The top of the badge has an area highlighted in red that states full access is required by law.
This should help prevent you from getting questioned by people who don’t understand your rights under the law. There is also an emergency notification on the badge, which lets others know that if there is an emergency situation, the service dog is not to be removed from your company if you need to be moved.
The back of the ID has the federal law pertaining to emotional support dogs listed in case someone needs clarification. It also has a phone number and hours of operation for the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) information line.
When ordering the ID, you’ll need to give a photo of your service animal, his name, your name and the registry number if you have it already. The ID can be attached to a dog’s harness for easy visibility.
Flirt Pole for Dogs
Dogs need both training and exercise to help stimulate them mentally and to stay in good physical shape. Dogs that are properly challenged and get the exercise that they need are not only healthier, but they’re more well-behaved.
They’re less likely to do things like chew on your shoes or the furniture. One of the best ways to give your dog what he needs is to use a Flirt Pole for Dogs. What this piece of equipment does is it uses a lure on one end to get your dog up and moving around.
It can sharpen your dog’s reflexes, his timing and improve his motor skills. Plus, if you want to train your dog for events like competitions, then the pole is the best way to do that.
The pole has a handy wrist strap, is 36” in length and comes with the 52” cord so you have plenty of length. This helps stretch the tool out varying distances so that your dog learns both short as well as long retrieval.
The lure that’s on the end of the training tool is made of braided fleece and you can get them with or without the squeak. This makes it tough enough to withstand repeated catches, tugs and head shaking movements that your dog may do once he catches it.
It also makes the lure long lasting and it won’t fall apart. You don’t have to buy different sized poles or lures depending on the type of dog that you have. This tool can be used with both small, toy size dogs all the up to the largest breed of dogs.
It doesn’t take a lot of time to give your dog what he needs when it comes to exercise. If you spend just ten minutes a day using the Flirt Pole, you’ll be giving your dog the amount of exercise that he needs.
On those busy days when you don’t have time to take your dog out for a walk, you can spend just 10 minutes using the Flirt Pole and give your pet all the exercise that he needs.
Not only is this a help for busy pet owners, but also for pet owners who may have health problems of their own and struggle to walk their dogs. Your dog will get exercise running back and forth as you flick the lure from spot to spot.
You can use long range or short range flicks to get your dog to reverse his direction as well as leap up into the air to catch the lure. This dog tool is lightweight, so it’s easy to hold onto.
Because the cord is made of a stretchy cord type material, when your dog catches it, the momentum won’t yank it out of your hand or jerk his head and cause an injury. You can use the tool to teach your dog patience, to only move when you say so, to stop, start and more.
Folding Metal Dog Crate
Your dog needs a crate for a variety of reasons. Most dogs crave a space of their own that they can retreat to when they feel the need for security. You’ll want to have a top of the line space for him such as the Folding Metal Dog Crate.
Because this is a folding dog crate, it can assemble in minutes and you won’t need to screw anything in place. There’s a handle for you to use for those for the times when you want to move the crate.
The ability to fold down makes this crate easy to move from one room to another, to store or to take along on a trip out of town. Or if someone is keeping your dog while you’re away, you can easily disassemble, fold and transport the crate.
This metal dog crate has rounded corners, which helps prevent accidental scratches or injuries to your pet or yourself like straight edge corners can sometimes cause. The crate uses latches that slide securely into place. This is also a safety feature for your pet.
There’s a plastic pan in the bottom of the crate. This is helpful for times when your dog is ill, when your pet may be in heat or when you’re trying to house break a puppy or younger dog.
This pan is easy to clean and disinfect. There’s also a pan stop which works to prevent this pan from just sliding out. The bottom of the cage has rubber feet to help prevent scratches and gouges on flooring.
You can easily use the product to train a puppy by using a divider panel. The reason that this works is that dogs have an intense dislike of using the bathroom in the same spot that they’re going to sleep in.
If you have a crate that allows your dog to use the bathroom in one corner, then be able to retreat to a far corner, it will work against you when it comes to housebreaking training.
But you don’t want to keep having to buy different size crates to get the right fit, either. So when you get this one, you can simply let it grow along with your puppy when you use the divider panel. This panel is included free with the crate.
Besides a place for your dog to feel secure, and for use potty training, you can also use a crate to help gently correct your dog when he engages in activities that are disrupting or destructive. Make sure that you choose the crate size that allows your dog to be able to lie down and sit up comfortably.
Gentle Lead Head Collar
When you want to walk or train your dog, you know which direction you need to take to get results. Your dog, however, has a mind of his own and his decisions don’t always line up with yours.
By using the Gentle Lead Head Collar, you can make those stressful walks with your dog that feel more like tug of war battles a thing of the past. The collar is designed to put the pet owner in control even when it comes the unruliest of dogs.
The collar isn’t like a regular dog collar. It’s a training tool that’s designed to help pet owners teach the dog to walk naturally and calmly beside their owners. By using the collar, you can get through to your dog in ways that you can’t by using a regular collar.
Those other types often squeeze a dog’s throat and put a lot of pressure on the trachea. This is why you’ll sometimes hear dogs gasp and wheeze when straining against a leash.
But this collar focuses on controlling and training your pet through the use of calming points. This calms your dog even if he’s easily excitable or seems like he’s uncontrollable.
By using the collar, you can eliminate the leash pulling that goes hand in hand with a regular collar. It's not fun for the pet owner to get dragged around and it’s stressful for the dog when he wants to go and has all that pull against his throat.
The collar is effective in correcting the bad habits that many dogs have. It can correct behavior when they want to be in control. It can also stop aggression, anxiety and the excited behavior that comes from distractions during walks.
It’s also useful to stop bad habits like jumping or lunging at other animals, other dogs or people. The collar is adjustable so you can fit it comfortably around your dog for better control.
The straps are nylon for durability and the nose loop is padded so that it’s comfortable for your pet. Some people question whether the collar acts as a muzzle. It doesn’t. When the dog is wearing this training tool, he can still drink or eat, pant, catch a ball or whatever he wants.
It doesn’t keep his mouth closed like a muzzle does. Most dogs adjust calmly and happily to the collar and this training tool is effective even when other devices have failed. It can be worn for hours and can be used to help train puppies. A training DVD is included with purchase of the collar.
Pet Carrier for Dogs
A pet carrier is something that no responsible pet owner wants to be without. You never know when you’re going to need to transport your beloved pet somewhere. Whether it’s by car, train, boat or plane, you’ll need something so that your pet can travel in comfort and security.
Traveling is often stressful for humans - but more so for pets - especially if you use those old, hard shell carriers. Dogs can’t see what’s going on around them and the hardness of the material makes it tough for them to relax.
That’s why you want to get a pet carrier that’s made for travel like Mr. Peanut's Airline Approved Soft Sided Pet Carrier. It’s designed to easily fit under an airline seat and is an approved travel bag for pets.
Because it’s soft sided, it immediately offers more comfort for your pet. If he shifts, he’s not going to have to contort like he would in a hard shell carrier. He can turn around, lay down and not feel like he’s caged.
Plus, the carrier doesn’t make dogs feel like they’re boxed in, thanks to the mesh windows. There’s one on the side as well as one on the top. Your pet gets plenty of ventilation and can also see what’s happening around him.
The material of the carrier is soft on purpose because it’s made to help your dog feel snug and safe. The carrier even comes with a removable fleece pad, which adds to your dog’s comfort while traveling.
You can take this pad out and wash it by hand when it needs to be cleaned. Although it’s tough and sturdy, the carrier is still much lighter than other carriers. It’s made of nylon - so that means water will run off of it rather than soaking into it.
This nylon is the same grade that you’ll discover is used for parachutes used by the military. It’s pretty easy to keep clean, since it’s not known to absorb stains or odors, but if you do get a spot on it, you can just wipe it off with a damp cloth.
When using this carrier, you need to be aware of the size limitations. If you try to cram a dog in it that’s too big, he’ll be miserable. If your dog weighs more than 14 pounds, then this isn’t the right size carrier for your pet.
You should also make sure that your dog doesn't measure longer than 17” and he’s not taller than 11”. For convenience sake, the carrier has pockets where you can put items that your pet needs - such as treats, grooming items and his favorite toy. The shoulder strap and carry handle are both padded for your comfort.
Reflective Dog Training Leash
When you have a dog, one of the most important steps that you can take is to make sure that it’s properly trained. A well-trained dog is less aggressive, better behaved, and more enjoyable to be around.
Plus, you can help prevent your dog from behavior problems with other dogs or humans when he’s trained. To get your dog to behave correctly, you have to have the right kind of tools to help you - and that includes a leash.
The cheap kind of leashes you can buy at a store aren’t the kind of leashes that you need. You need the Reflective Dog Training Leash, because its specific purpose for it is to be used in training your dog rather than just taking him out on walks.
Plus, this leash is compatible with the lead head collar for dog training. The leash is made of resilient, yet lightweight rope. When you compare it with regular leashes, this one is more tightly woven and the threads are raised versus flat.
This means that your dog can’t easily chew through it or yank it out of your grasp. The material helps it become shock absorbent so no matter how much your dog wants to take off after a squirrel, you won’t feel that painful jerking motion on your arm like you get with other leashes.
Another great feature with this leash is that it has a padded handle. This gives you a greater ability to control the actions of your dog while you’re training him. Plus, if he pulls against the rope, the padded handle prevents that painful friction burn some leashes can give you.
You can use this leash beginning when your dog is a puppy to teach him how to behave correctly right from the start. The leash is durable and tough enough to keep using even after your dog is fully grown.
The rope is designed to glow in the dark, so this safety feature lets you easily walk your dog in the evening without fear that someone can’t see him and might get too close and startle your pet.
Plus, it enables your dog to easily be seen by people driving by as you’re walking him. The end of the leash contains a clip hook that lets it fasten securely to a collar or a lead head collar.
This hook is so strong that it can withstand more than 300 pounds of pressure - so it’s perfect for use with big dogs, too. Both the sturdiness of the leash and the hook are what enable pet owners to be able to quickly correct any undesirable behavior that a dog exhibits while still allowing the animal and the owner to enjoy being out in public.
Ultimate Dog Bed
There are dog beds available almost anywhere and you can find some pretty inexpensive ones, too. But the problem with that is that you really do get what you pay for.
You don’t want to make your beloved pet sleep on a bed that’s not big enough or comfortable. When dogs sleep on beds that are too small or that have inferior padding, they can end up with joint pains, hip problems and stiffness.
The best thing that you can do is to provide your pet with a top quality dog bed such as the Ultimate Dog Bed. With this bed, your dog will be able to get a good rest every time he goes to sleep.
He’ll be comfortable and happy whether he’s a puppy or an older dog. Unlike the inferior dog beds you can find, the material inside of this one isn’t made of stuffing items that shred, fall apart or separate the second your dog tries to wriggle around in it.
Instead, this bed is made with memory foam. The high density material keeps your dog comfortable time after time. This memory foam is a top of the line material and can do so much for your pet over and above regular dog bed filling.
Memory foam helps your dog get a good night’s rest and helps him be able to remain comfortable regardless of how long he sleeps. This bed has outer arms that are also stuffed for comfort - just like you’d find on a sofa, which is one reason that dogs have always loved sleeping on couches.
The arms of the dog bed give your pet a place to put his head or to tuck under the ends where he can feel warm and meet the need for security that dogs crave. When you get the right size dog bed, your pet will be able to stretch completely out, curl up or even have a companion pet snuggled next to him in the bed.
You don’t have to worry about the memory foam filling getting soaked through because the outer covering is water resistant. It’s so tough that in case your pet has an accident, it works to slow the fluid, giving you time to get the cover off.
This cover can be spot washed, but it’s also machine washable and you can also buy an extra one to put on while you’re washing the first one. This way, your pet never has to be without his bed.
You can buy these beds in sizes ranging from small to extra large. So whether you have a teacup Chihuahua or a Great Dane, you’ll find just the right bed with this product.

But you’ll want to have a Waterproof Car Seat Cover for Dogs in place before there’s an actual need for it. Dogs really are man’s best friend. They’re loving and loyal and so much fun to have around.
But they also shed, drool, dig, scratch, and have accidents. When that happens, you can end up with damage to your car or some pretty noticeable odors. You don’t want that - not when protecting your seat is an easy fix.

By using the cover, you can keep the seat he rides on safe from getting cut by your dog’s nails, from the dirt he might track in, from any accidental bathroom leaks he might have and even from the stain of vomit if he gets sick.
Plus, the seat cover will keep anything he might track in from hurting your car seat. If he does accidentally track something in and it gets on the cover, it’s not a big deal.
