Default 20 Items Or Less

If you could only pick 20 items (or less) of must have dog supplies... what would be on your list? Not including food. Toys, treats, clothes, leashes, whatever. What are items/companies/products you just LOVE and would not be without?

I'm looking for some inspiration. I'm not very unique when it comes to dog products. (Sizzle has pretty much encouraged a lot of my "Oooh this looks cool!" shopping.)

(Psst. This could be great for those participating in Secret Santa! )

Is that 20 items per dog? Or 20 items total?

I thought I was being generous with 20 total! But per dog works, too

Poopbags. And holder. It HAS to be EarthRated. It helps that I won a crapton of them.

Euro lead. You can get them lots of places, but I think is my favorite for leather (they're cheap and well-made!). I just make my nylon ones myself out of tubular nylon. I use the nylon for everyday and the leather for more formal occasions or when I feel like using leather lol.

Ella's Lead Liberty's Attachment. I use this as a handle for Logan's harness when I don't use the guide handle. Mine is black and super oft and smooth. It doesn't have any bling on it, but I did engrave it with a variation of one of my favorite Doctor Who quotes - "You always took me where I needed to go"

On that note, Ella's Lead collars. I especially love the steampunk collars!

Wire bowl holders, because Logan travels with his bowl otherwise.

And placemat, because my dogs are messy eaters (especially Logan), and I have carpets. It also offers me an alternative to feeding out of a bowl if I want - just pour it on the mat!

Jeffers dog coat. Cheap, and it makes Gavroche happy in the winter lol.

Ad much as I hate to admit it...a Flexi. Strictly for potty breaks. But it makes winter that much more bearable.

Rubber curry comb for baths.

Wire crate with doors on at least 2 sides, for rearranging.

The other 10 coming up next!

Pethead Feeling Flaky shampoo. Smells delicious (strawberry yogurt) AND is pretty much the only shampoo that helps Logan's dandruff.

And PetHead High Maintenance leave-in conditioner, for the same reasons.

Rescoe Guillotine Nail Clippers. For when I'm too lazy to dremel. I can survive with just these if I don't have a dremel, but not vice versa.

Coolaroo dog bed, because they're awesome, especially when they're only $10 from Gordman's.

Nylabone Durachew. I can't find the exact right one anywhere but Walmart neighborhood markets. It's similar to this one, but different lol. I have yet to meet a dog that doesn't like them.

Tooth scaler!

And electric toothbrush, but not the same head I use on it lol.

VittlesVault. Best when it's free, BUT a good alternative is a bucket from Home Depot with a Vittles Vault lid.

Bananas! Because both my dogs LURVE them.

Boomerang collar tag!

A collar, a leash, a tug, a flexi, a crate, nail clippers, a bed, and a ball.

We're simple. Beyond that... mostly sport stuff.

-Gun dog supply tufflex biothane collar (w/ name plate) because they are handy and super durable

-OnLead leather superlead, great quality and super handy

-Crate with double doors

- Earthbags poobags/dispenser

- Zoom groom (Merlin loves it and it does such a great job wet or dry with hair)

- Antler (because sometimes my dog is annoying)

- Chucklehounds bow tie. Because you can switch em out and sometimes my dog has to be formal

- Bamboo pop up bowl. easy to bring everywhere and I constantly forget about feeding/watering haha

- Molly mutt crate cover (because life is too short for ugly crates)

- West paw salsa. Because for reasons unknown this toy has survived a year with Merlin (killer of stuffies) and he loves the **** thing (also they replace wrecked toys)

- Earthbath shampoo. Because my dog gets into some gross stuff and I want to give him a bath every 2 days without worrying about harmful chemicals or having him smell like an old ladies house.

- Musher's secret
because my dog is a pansy about snowballs in his toes and because it also makes great winter chapstick

- Red barn filled bones. Because sometimes my dog is REALLY REALLY annoying and bully sticks last him 2 seconds and we can re-use these!

- Nature's miracle: because having a dog is sometimes disgusting

- Earthbath dog wipes.
because sometimes my dog is disgusting and I don't have time to wash him.

-Chuckit. Because i'm a horrible thrower and my dog has a lot of energy

- Cuz ball. I don't even know why. He's just obsessed with them. Maybe it's the feet?

-Weruva fish treats. because training is hard sometimes and these are so stinky and fish and enticing he will focus on me instead of the squirrel/other dog/leaf

- Egg baby. Because it's like 5 toys for the price of one/sticking the eggs & a treat in will have him occupied for at least 20 minutes. and the eggs make GREAT indoor fetch balls

- Giant quilt to cover bed (because dog hair in the sheets is off putting)

- Lint rollers.

- Petz life spray. because teeth brushing is a pain lol

I don't even think my dogs combined have 20 things.

1.) Nature's Miracle and/or another super awesome cleaner that is safe to use on carpet. Because urine, vomit, blood, and poop happens.
2.) A carpet cleaner. Because of the above.
3.) 1/2" Biothane leash. I am in love. I will never have anything else ever again.
4.) Kong. Because it shuts up the dog like nothing else will.
5.) Stainless steal dishes. Easy to clean and they aren't fun to chew on.
6.) Wire crate with at least two doors. Mine is only a single door...and oh, how I wish for two doors.
7.) A long line or tether. Or a Flexi. Or all three!
8.) Reflective collars. It makes it easy to see the dogs at night when they're in the yard. I LOVE the generic nylon reflective collars from Petco. Metal clips that won't break, durable fabric that holds its size, and they come in cool colors. The Kong reflective collars (not the padded ones, but the normal nylon ones) are great, too.
9.) A "get messy" collar (aka, a biothane collar). Great for playing in the mud, swimming, and wearing while bathing with the hose because they rolled in something dead!
10.) A slip lead, especially if your dog doesn't wear a collar in the house.
11.) A good vacuum. Because hair and mess and when they raid the trashcan that you just dumped the rat bedding into, you want to be able to suck everything up quickly...
12.) Nail trimmers and/or grinder. Because long nails are evil.
13.) Baby gate. Because sometimes you need the door open, but no dogs invading the room.
14.) Lockable container for dog food. Because who needs your dog raiding the dog food bag, or the dog food going stale?
15.) Really, any Kong toy. I have yet to be disappointed with the quality or how long they last. (Although the prices make me sad inside.)
16.) Beggin Strips. They're cheap, the dogs love them, and they can be broken into teenie tiny pieces for training.
17.) Small milk bones. Because they are also cheap and easy to give as a boring reward for kenneling up during a normal day.
18.) Portable dog water bottle/dish combo. Great for hikes, or a day out.
19.) A nice metal pooper scooper. Because it makes yard cleanup easier than with a shovel. LOL
20.) A dog cover seat for your vehicle, especially if you have a hairy dog that will be riding with your frequently. Even doubly so if you will be taking your dog anywhere where it will get dirty.
