My favorite dog thing of the week is the bully stick! It totally saved me in agility last week, Keegan went from barking a lot to barking not much at all.

I also love the starmark clicker, but I especially love my wristband that I keep it on. Without it I drop my clicker ALL THE TIME.

Same. Love the clickers especially. Those are all I use anymore.

My favorite gadget is just a service dog leash. It's like 8 feet long and has an alligator clip on each end, an o-ring anchored near the collar clip and a floating o-ring. The alligator clips lock. I can use it for a car harness tie-out, an over-the-shoulder or around-the-waist leash. I can clip poop bags to it, work it around her service dog vest so it functions as a shorter handle, walk two dogs at once on it, etc.. Love that thing.

Same here - I got one of those phone-cord like wristbands and slapped it on and OMG! It's sooo handy to have it on a wristband like that. Why don't they come like that?! It's perfect!

I've never lost my poop bag dispensers either... mine are also a PITA to get hooked and unhooked though. One time I was freaking out because I forgot I connected it to my pants to take Auggie pottying before an agility run and was about to walk in the ring with it on... couldn't get it off!! I was like "I AM GOING TO RIP MY BELT LOOP OFF!" Finally I got it unhooked, threw it on the ground, and ran into the ring... it was horrible, haha.



these... I love them!! They are pre-scoured so I can just snap them in half really easily. Everything else I buy I need to get scissors out and cut into halves (or thirds) but these are made for me to snap in half, haha. I think they are my fave training treat for that reason...


do my crates count?

Oh and I've never had a problem with that bag dispenser.. odd. Maybe it's a fluke thing?

The starmark clicker PRO deluxe (on dog.com for like $3) comes with wristband!


Oh and more things I love.

Chuck it ultra ball. No tennis ball fuzz (which I hear wears on teeth), super bouncy, floaty, bright colored, doesn't get chewed/destroyed



Bold lead designs makes an awesome lead.. service dog/multi lead wise


I'm sure this is common knowledge for most of us.. but still lol


KONG KONG KONG!

Hide-a-squirrel dog toy. I don't know what it is about this thing. The squirrels.. the overall tree kind of thing.. I DON'T KNOW. but I've never met a dog who wasn't obsessed


Musher's secret. It's this paw wax stuff. Romeo WILL NOT wear booties. just won't walk. but Miami sidewalks, especially in the afternoon get really hot. so I got some of this and am very pleased with the results. I've heard the same about paws and snow

I have poop bag holders I like, but that exact one has failed repeatedly for me. I don't know how many I have gotten through trials (as they are cheap and found at places like the dollar store) and every single one the clip has let go and I have lost it.

I am not against poop bag holders, just I don't find that specific holder lasts longer than a few walks.

Tagg. This thing has saved Lucy's life. It's a GPS that attaches to her collar, so when she climbs the fence we can follow the little blue dot on the iphone and know where she is. It has saved me SO MUCH frustration. Also, when I leave her with a friend/family member/sitter, I can reset the "home" zone to their house, so it sends me a text/email anytime she leaves the zone. It reassures me that she's where she's supposed to be.



We have tried zillions of stuffed animals, she has a box full of toys, and yet she will dig through the pile and pull out the squirrel every time. We must be on squirrel #20 by now. It's by far her favorite. (And bonus--only $5.99 at Target!)



Best training treat ever. Doesn't make your pockets smell, doesn't make your hands slimy, shows up on just about every surface, easily breaks into small bits, and when you get hungry, you can have some too!

Flexi. I can't trust Jack off leash, so the Flexi gives him more freedom to run around in the park. I never, ever use it in stores though (one of my pet peeves).


Kongs! My dogs get a Kong every day when we leave the house and they have to be confined/crated. I have made Kong-stuffing a sport, and am constantly looking for new treats to stuff in there!


On the theme of Kongs...Stella & Chewy's freeze dried! These are the best Kong stuffers ever. I put the patties in the Kong while they're still dry and crumbly, run water through it to rehydrate, and then freeze. It takes Jack ages to finish it all.


NutriSource treats! I have tried a ton of different training treats, and these are Jack's absolute favorite treats - he will do anything to get them. Ingredient-wise, they're not my favorite (but not horrible), so I use them for his high-distraction rewards.


Sporn harness. My favorite harness in the world. It fits absolutely perfectly! I've had it for a year and half, and it's super durable and super washable!

Oh, my goodness those pictures are huge! Could a moderator please re-size those, if possible? I don't have access to my Photobucket at the moment.
