Like many of you, there are piles of Amazon Prime packages on our doorsteps addressed to us on any given day, but in reality, they are for our dogs. So, you can imagine our excitement with next week's shopping holiday.
If you haven’t heard, Amazon Prime Day is on July 15th and 16th, offering Prime subscribers an exclusive deals on the best products on Amazon (pro tip: if you don’t have Prime, you can sign up for a free trial to take part in the holiday). While we don't know which products will be on sale on Prime Day, we thought we'd round up a few of our favorite products that are perfect for your doggy.
Gagets for Playtime
Outward Hound’s Hide and Seek Squirrel will keep your dog occupied and engaged as they try to sniff and hunt for the squeaky squirrels hiding inside. While this toy challenges your dog’s problem solving-skills, the squirrels also double as fun game of catch.
If you’re dog’s too rough for or is disinterested in standard tennis balls, we recommend checking out Chuckit!’s Squeaker or Whistler Balls and the Ball Launcher that will keep your dog engaged while playing fetch.
Otterly Pets Rope Toys will meet the needs of the dog who loves tug of war. Four durable toys are included and can easily be washed due to it’s 100% natural cotton fibers.
Gadgets for Enrichment During Feeding Time
Kong’s Wobbler feeding toy is great for the fast-eater who needs a bit of help slowing down their food intake. Kong is proudly made in the USA, so you can count on the quality.
A snuffle mat can also help with slow feeding and taps into your dog's prey drive while they sniff out their kibble or treats.
Nina Ottosson’s dog puzzle toys offer different challenges with varying levels of difficulty, so you can really test your dogs abilities with some of the advanced level toys.
Gadgets for Walks
The Illumiseen LED Dog Collar, available for dogs of all sizes, is perfect for those nighttime walks and potty runs. We love this collar due to its brightness, durability, different light modes, and rechargeable battery pack.
For hot days and longer walks, IDEGG’s Portable Silicone Pet Bowl will offer your pooch much needed hydration. After your pooch is finished, you can easily collapse and attach to the leash with the attached carabiner.
We love Tuff Mutt’s Dog Waste Bag Holder because while most dog poop bag holders clip to the end of the leash, this one can be attached securely to any leash, harness, waist, or running belt with velcro straps that lay flush against whatever it’s attached to.
Gadgets for Training
Dr. Patricia McConnell is one of the leading applied animal behaviorist and dog trainers. Her book, “The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs” will leave you with an understanding of dog behavior and how our own behavior when influences dogs.
Chuckit’s Treat Tote will give you the easy access to treats you need when training your dog. The bag can clip on your waist and is small enough to not distract your dog.
If you need something to fill your treat tote, check out Cloud Star Chewy Tricky Trainers. These low calorie, soft treats will be easily gobbled up during training so your dog stays focused, and the value pack features multiple flavors to keep them interested.
