Doggy Must-Haves

These are some toys, treats, and others that I found are essential to raising our own dog, from puppy days to when they're grown up! Tip on buying treats: I think any treats you find in a pet store a fine, but if you're really strict on your dogs health, watch out for products that aren't made/processed in the US, meat by-products (parts of an animal you don't really want i.e. intestines, lungs,spleen, etc.), and preservatives,

SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter
SKIPPY® Creamy Peanut Butter

My dog loves peanut butter, and I would usually put a little bit in her kong toy so she can try to lick the peanut butter out. Make sure that you don't feed your dog too much, because it is after-all a treat, and buy reduced fat and sodium peanut butter.

This toy is so fun, it bounces around sporadically, and you can put a treat, or peanut butter inside and hope your dog can figure out how to get it out.

Greenies Dental Chews
Greenies Dental Chews

My dog loves this. You can bring it on the road to keep your dog occupied or hand him one when you feel like his teeth need a little cleaning. Of course, don't give your dog multiple greenies in a single day, maybe one every other day, and giving these yummy dental chews to your dog doesn't mean he doesn't need to brush his teeth!

6 Fish Orijen Food

This is by far, the best dog kibble and dog treat brand you'll be able to find. You won't find this brand at your local chain pet store or drugstore, but usually, they'll be stocked at a small pet store. They have a couple different types of kibble: for puppies, adults, chicken, six fish, regional, tundra, etc,and the big bags sell for around $60 (expensive, I know $$$$$). The most important quality about this brand is that they use all natural fresh regional ingredients, no extra water in the kibble, no meat by-products, no sketchy chemicals, and all their meats are de-boned. For sure, you'll know that your dog is healthy and is eating the best dog food out there. This is my dog's favorite kibble, and of course, they'll be a little spoiled when they start eating this.

Prairie Dog Antlers Puppy Deer Antler
Prairie Dog Antlers Puppy Deer Antler

We first tried buying cow tendons and rawhides to our dog for her to chew on, but she would be able to wear away the whole tendon or rawhide in about a day - one week, so we found an alternative. Deer antlers are perfect for chewing one, moreso than bones (which can get stuck in your dogs digestive system) and raw hides (which are generally unhealthy if your dog eats it). A little more pricey, but your dog will be chewing on this for months, and there are no negative effects to health for doing so.

Grizzly Salmon Oil Dog Food Supplement 32 oz Pump
Grizzly Salmon Oil Dog Food Supplement 32 oz Pump

I have an australian shepherd, so she has really nice and soft fur/hair, and to make sure her fur stays soft and well maintained, we put 1-2 pumps of this salmon oil onto her kibble. Your dog will have soft shiny hair :)

Easy Walk Harness

Not every dog needs a harness, usually a collar will do, but if your dog is uncontrollable on walks, a harness will be better so you don't choke your dog.

Four Paws Poo-Kins Dog Waste Pickup Bag Dispenser with Refill Bags
Four Paws Poo-Kins Dog Waste Pickup Bag Dispenser with Refill Bags

You don't necessarily need to buy this brand, as I don't, but you just need a lot of pet poo-bag refills for when your dog has a number two when he's out and about.

Top Paw Red Polka Dot Rain Coat
Top Paw Red Polka Dot Rain Coat

I think that all dogs should own a raincoat (with a hood!) so your dog won't get soaking wet when going on walks on a rainy day! Of course not every dog likes wearing clothes, but it doesn't hurt to find out if your dog is comfortable with one.

FURminator
FURminator

My dog has a very thick coat and a lot of loose fur, and this furminator (it's like a brush) gets all of those loose hairs out so she doesn't shed all over our house. This doesn't hurt your dogs skin, but my dog doesn't like getting her hair brushed so she's not a big fan of this, but you've got to do what you've got to do to make sure your dog doesn't shed everywhere!
