You guys already know I spend way too much time thinking, talking, walking, playing, and dreaming about my dog. I also have a fair amount of disposable income, which means we’ve tried a whole lot of different dog products over the years. Here are the very best ones I recommend to everyone I know.1. Chuckit! Launchers
Perfect for dogs who love to play fetch, the Chuckit is designed to pick up the ball hands-free (no more muddy, slobbery hands) and then throw it 3 times as far as you can with your arm. The Chuckit balls are also designed to not ruin the enamel on your dog’s pearly whites, unlike normal tennis balls which can be harmful after years of use.
From trips to the beach to hikes in the mountains, it’s important to keep your running pup hydrated as they run laps around you. Instead of pouring water into your hand to let your dog lap it up, just flip down the drinking tray and squirt water inside.
Designed for pups on a dry food diet, this supplement has all the vitamins that they would get from eating raw. Prozyme helps dogs with general digestion, but it can also help pets who experience excessive shedding, gas, skin problems, weight issues, lack of energy, and stool eating.
Unlike the typical “sled dog” harnesses that attach in back, the SENSE-ible harness attaches in front and gives better directional cues to your dog while reducing pulling. I discussed this game-changing harness in my What’s In My Bag video, but all it took was one walk to turn my pup from a pulling nightmare to a well-mannered leash dog.
Juggling a leash while controlling a bike is dangerous, but the Walky Dog Bicycle Exerciser Leash allows you to connect your dog to the seat post, which is safer for both of you. I loved this product so much, I actually did an entire blog post about it.
If even a long hike only needs to semi-tire your dog, filling this pack full of water bottles will change everything. It’s a comfortable fit for your pup and doesn’t shift when they run, plus it allows them to carry their own water, leash, and any other necessities.
Treat toys turn meal time into play time, providing extra stimulation and slows down how quickly your dog consumes food. You can use it for fetch or tug-o-war, or just fill it up with their dinner and let them go to work. (Psst, get more tips on mentally challenging your dog.)
Although it’s not exactly been a chilly winter here in California, this puffy dog vest is perfect for sissy dogs like mine who tremble in a bit of cold. It’s water repellant with velcro enclosures, reflective piping, and a reversible option so you can switch colors.
Incredibly easy for your pup to digest, bully sticks have no additives, colors, chemicals, or preservatives. They are safe for puppies and also help remove tarter buildup on teeth. Really the healthiest option if you’re looking for a “bone” for them to chew on.
Another great food toy option, the Kong Genius toys snap together so you can fill them with kibble and create complex puzzles for your pup. They’re great for combating boredom or separation anxiety – I often fill Ru’s up just before I leave, effective distracting her during my departure.
Training your dog is incredibly important, and the food you use can dramatically change the effectiveness of a training session. Natural Balance Dog Food Rolls are actually a meal-time food, not a treat, so your dog can safely chow down on lots of it, but it’s still stinky and dogs go gaga over it.
