5 Things Every Dog Should Have

1.Treats:Treats help reinforce the special bond between you and your dog, and are a good way to reinforce positive behavior. Treats are also a definite help during training. You can also find healthy treats as well.

2. Bed: Dog beds prevent your dog from using your expensive couch or chair and are actually good for the animal. Also, dogs, especially larger ones, should not lie on hard surfaces. They can develop calluses or sores over bony protrusions (such as the elbow). Dogs with arthritis can especially benefit from a dog bed, especially one crafted for arthritic dogs, like the Thermal Dog Cushion.

3. Toys: Games allow us to build a relationship with our pets through play, and toys are an important part of these games. Buy toys that lets your dog mimic hunting behaviors like retrieving, herding and guarding. Also, chew toys like KONG are essential to prevent your dog from chewing your belongings.

4. Crate: As well as giving your dog a safe, cozy place to stay, crates can make training your dog a lot easier. Housebreaking goes much faster when you use a crate and destructive chewing becomes easier to control. Traveling is also safer for both you and your dog when he’s in a crate.

5. Leash: Get a leash for your dog that keeps your dog safe, and choose a length that allows for good control. Check out our wide selection of dog leashes.
