Dog's Name: Morgan
Dog's Breed: Labmutt
Collar Size: ~16 inches (generally "medium")
Favourite Treat: He's a labmutt. If it's edible, it's win.
Favourite Toy: Stuffies with squeakies are always a hit, but with one exception (below) he's big on toys in general.
Treats they cannot have: I avoid treats made in China and rawhide chews. That's about it.
Toys they won't use: Complex puzzle toys (ie: anything with sliders, caps, or doors to manipulate)
Anything else!: While I'm not outright discouraging collars, I do own a small collar business so he's well equipped in that department.
Although he's not fond of complex puzzle toys, he does enjoy simpler things like roll-around treat dispensers and egg babies.
Finally, one of the things I've been looking at recently is reflective and/or lighted gear for night-time walks, since Morgan is basically invisible in the dark.

Clothing Size
Back length:
~25" from base-of-neck to base-of-tail
leg length: ~23" tall at the shoulder
chest size: ~26" around
neck size: ~16"

Your favourite colour(s): I always hate this question, because I just like COLOR! If forced to make choice, I'd probably say green... but I seriously just like bright colors. lol
Foodstuff you do not like (for humans!): Not picky, and no allergies, either. The only thing I can think off the top of my head that I'm not fond off are crunchy pretzel snacks.

*Secret Santa-ing for the other pets is COMPLETELY optional!!!*
That said, I know many people like to know the whole animal household, so here ya go.

Cats: Whitacre & Ticheli (males)
Favourite Treat: Salmon jerky/dehydrated dog treats
Favourite Toy: Small stuffies (small enough to carry), "flirt pole" style chase toys. Also, Ticheli's brains will fall out (with joy) if he sees anything with feathers. It's an unhealthy addiction. LOL
Treats/toys they cannot have: NO CATNIP, PLEASE!!! (Info on this below.)
Anything else!: We have sugar gliders and catnip is toxic to them. A lot of cat toys are treated with catnip, even if the label doesn't mention it. For this reason, we generally stick to small dog toys, ferret toys, homemade toys, or creatively repurposed household items for the cats.

Other Pets: As mentioned above, we also have a colony of four sugar gliders, plus I am a cornsnake hobbyist with twelve snakes. I'm fairly particular about what sorts of things they can/can't have, so I'm not asking they be shopped for, but, again, I know some people like to know the full zoo rundown.

Dog's Name: Mia and Summer
Dog's Breed: Papillons
Collar Size: 8-10" (around there), the thinner the better
Favourite Treat: They love all foods but prefer soft treats to harder ones. They also like chews a lot- bully sticks, tendons, hooves, ears, etc. My dogs love most food. They love any pure meat treats, Zukes, freeze dried/air dried raw, etc.
Favourite Toy: Mia looooooves kong x-small squeakers and we can't have too many of those. She also likes food fillable toys a lot. We already have an IQ ball but are always looking for similar things. Summer will sorta play with her bunny tug but that's it.
Treats they cannot have: nothing from China. Rawhide They don't like antlers or himalayan chews. Mia spits out any hard cookies but Summer likes them and hordes them lol.
Toys they won't use: Summer doesn't like any toys really. She just doesn't play. Mia is really all about the kong squeakers so she is very picky about balls and other things. If I throw a different kind of ball she will get annoyed then go grab a kong squeaker instead. Doesn't like rubbery toys much and isn't terribly into stuffies really either. (she has a lot and rarely plays with them)
Anything else!: ?

Clothing Size: generally xx small? lol I really don't know, they don't have many clothes. They are 7.5-8ish lbs if that helps. They do need new sweaters. Mia's chest outgrew hers and Summer's got muddy and looks really ratty.

Dog's Name: Cali
Dog's Breed: Rottweiler
Collar Size: 18"
Favourite Toy: Tugs (made by Katie), egg babies, nylabone (chocolate or bacon preferred), squeaky balls, and mind games.
Toys they won't use: Anything made with latex. Also, please no plush toys because it will be destroyed. The only plush toys that somewhat hold up to her are Tuffy brand.
Anything else!: Please do not send anything with small pieces, or any type of round object with a slick surface. She has really developed a love for tugging so maybe a tug lead that can be used when training? She will also be starting obedience soon and be in need of a nice leather collar/lead set. Cali doesn't really have a color since she mainly uses leather -- but all her hardware is brass.

Clothing Size Cali is hot natured so the only thing she wears is a cooling coat of some sort. She has a 33" chest, generally wears a L or XL depending on the cut of the coat.

Dog's Name: Brawt
Dog's Breed: Dachshund
Collar Size: 10"
Favourite Toy: Nylabone (chocolate preferred), tugs, working puzzle toys, stuffed toys that squeak, but will destroy them unless they are small (ex: Dr. Noys). He also loves the eggs from the egg babies (yes, he is an odd dog).
Toys they won't use: Anything made of extremely hard rubber or latex or tennis type balls. Also isn't fond of toys that are shaggy (longer type "hair").
Anything else!: Brawt doesn't really have a color -- he looks fab in red, black and orange type colors.

Clothing Size Brawt loves clothes -- his favorite part about winter is that he gets to wear PJ's. Anything that properly fits is custom made due to his short legs and long back.
Back length: 14"
leg length: 6"
chest size: 17"
neck size: 10"

Dog's Name: Charlie
Dog's Breed: Dachshund
Collar Size: 10"
Favourite Toy: Nylabone
Toys they won't use: Anything other than the two items listed above.
Anything else!: Charlie is a simple dog -- as long as he has love, food, and blankets he is a happy boy. Charlie also doesn't have a color, but looks great in red, black, and green.

Clothing Size: Charlie prefers to be naked.

I combined some of the questions since the same rules apply to all three dogs. I apologize in advance for having so many restrictions due to B's seizures.

Favourite Treat: Bully sticks, trachea, and lamb/buffalo ears. Also big fan of unusual protein sources (alligator, crawfish, buffalo, etc.).
Treats they cannot have: Antlers, anything with grains, chicken, pork, or turkey. Please no rawhide, junky treats, or anything made in China.

Your favourite colour(s): Black and teal
foodstuff you do not like (for humans!): Coffee, mint, cherry, or chewy foods.

ALSO! Please do not feel obligated to buy for all three dogs, they are all spoiled and always getting stuff bought for them.
