A Few Of Our Favorite Dog Things
Here are our top picks for affordable dog things to give as a gift or to have for yourself. These are items that we not only recommend, but have in our household and in stock.
Kong– $8-$20 each. We stuff our Kongs with canned dog food and freeze them. This is the perfect way to feed your dog his meal and give him something mentally stimulating to do. Our freezer ALWAYS has a few of these in there.
Flirt Poles– $20-$25 each. Flirt poles are not only mentally and physically stimulating but they can teach your dog impulse control as well as help with other areas of training.
Charlee Bear Treats– $3 to $6 each. We sell these low calorie training treats for less then what you would pay in most local stores. We also love Trader Joe’s Salmon and Chicken treats! If you want great gourmet treats from a local source, Bones Du Jour is our go-to for treats.
Treat Pouch– $17. Now that you have treats, you need something to put them in. These treat pouches are sturdy, washable and comfortable to wear.
Freedom “No Pull” Harness-$29 to $32. This harness helps to teach your dog not to pull on a leash. Training is of course necessary (but we can help with that!) Both of our dogs wear this comfortable harness.
Hands Free Leash– Either take two leashes and put them together with one around your waist or you can buy a hands free leash. Once you go hands free you will never want to go back to holding the leash in your hand!
Snake Toy by Outward Hound is $13- This toy is fairly durable, soft and it squeaks. It is also great for tug.
Komtrak Notebooks– $7 to $14. We often recommend that clients journal so that they can see their progress. This is a great tool to document how training is going. There are lots of colors, sizes, binding mechanisms and types of paper to choose from when you buy this professional notebook.
Dog Training Gift Certificate– $10 up to $480. Pet Parents love to receive the gift of a well behaved dog. This can be used for any occasion including birthdays, anniversaries, Bring Your Dog to Work Day, Valentine’s Day, or any other holiday. Also available as an eGift Card.
