Friday’s Favorite Five: Dog School
School’s in! I thought this week’s favorite products would have a back-to-school theme. OK, maybe not so original, but let me see if I can come up with some great pet-themed school items and gifts. Back to school gifts for pets, you got it!
Dog Harness. If your kids are going back to school, it just might be a good time to enroll your dog in a local positive dog training class. If you attend a dog training class, you will likely need a good dog walking harness. One of my favorite dog walking harness is the Freedom No-Pull Harness. This dog walking harness has two points where you can attach a dog leash. One is in the front on the chest, and the second is on the top. By attaching a leash to your dog’s front or chest, you can help prevent your dog from pulling. As he pulls, his chest will start to turn toward the person walking him, providing the handler an opportunity to gain their dog’s attention. The design of this dog walking harness allows full movement of a dog’s front legs, keeping a natural gait.
Safety Dog Leash. By far, my favorite dog leash is made by Lupine Pet, located in New Hampshire. These cool dog leashes are not only stylish, but also safe! Safety is always my top priority. The dog leash clip is a zinc-plated reverse-gate snap, helping to ensure that your dog’s collar or harness does not slip out of the clasp. I’ve seen it happen with regular leash hooks. The Lupine Dog Leash also has a unique padded handle, which is the perfect size for a woman’s touch. And if your dog chews his leash, Lupine will replace it!
Healthy and Motivating Dog Treats. You can’t take your dog to dog training school without the right motivators. I mean, just how do you expect your goofy dog to focus on you when there are so many other cool kids in school? High-value and healthy dog treats, that’s how. Dr. Harvey’s Power Pops Tripe dog treats has your dog covered in this department. What makes these dog treats so motivating and healthy? They are a single ingredient, Tripe, dog treat. No fillers, no preservatives, just mouthwatering goodness. Single Ingredient Treat — It’s Just Tripe! Green tripe is 100% naturally-occurring vitamins, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, protein, and healthy fats.
Hollow Dog Toy. During your dog training class, you will likely have some down time where your dog will learn how to chill and relax. A great way to help your dog enjoy chill time is to teach him how to chew and lick on a filled hollow dog toy. The Kong Quest Bone is perfect for this. The large, hollow cavity makes unlocking the goodness easy for beginners. This hollow dog toy can be filled with your dog’s home cooked meal or canned dog food, then frozen for a bigger challenge. Not sure how to get started? Read my post on how to fill a hollow dog toy.
Dog Travel Mat. You don’t expect your dog to lie on a hard concrete or linoleum floor in dog training class, do you? Provide your dog with a little comfort, while teaching him to “go to his place.” Dexter The Dog enjoys his Kurgo Wander Dog Bed. This portable dog bed, or more like a dog mat, rolls up just like a sleeping bag and even has a handle for easy grabbing. It’s soft and cozy, and perfect for dogs on the go.
