This Christmas, don’t forget to add your 4 legged friends to your shopping list. If you’re looking for great gift ideas for your dog Santa Paws has a few ideas for you!
For the Naughty/Hyper Puppy
Puppy owners have all been here. You have a new addition who wont stop barking, climbing, jumping or chewing. That’s the stage we’re in now with Charlie.
The Pet Corrector™ is a great solution to your naughty/hyper puppy problem. Basically what it is, is a special can of compressed air that makes a loud hissing sound. When you catch your puppy doing something he shouldn’t press and release the trigger. When they stop doing whatever it was they were doing, give them a treat.
This is a great concept and it actually works. I was a little reluctant to put much faith in a can of air. I mean, Charlie is one stubborn puppy – when he has his mind set to something he normally sees it through. After only a few uses of the Pet Corrector™ he’s stopped barking at every Tom, Dick & Harry that comes to the door. We’re also working on stopping the jumping and random chewing.
The Pet Corrector™ is good for around 50 uses and comes with guidelines for use. The guidelines tell you how to use the Pet Corrector™ to stop behaviors such as jumping, stealing, barking and much more. I 100% recommend this to any one looking for a behavioral aide! You can get the Pet Corrector™ from www.companyofanimals.us.
For the Nice Puppy
Charlie can tell the difference between a chip bag and a treat bag. As soon as you pick up a treat bag he comes running. He can be in another room and the slightest crinkle of a treat bag sends him into a fit of excitement. On our walks he’s always trying to get into the treat bag I carry. There’s been more than a few occasions he’s snatched the bag and gobbled up all the treats.
The Lickety Stik® by PetSafe®, an innovative creator of safe, reliable pet products since 1991 is a great solution. It’s a roll-on dispenser that lets you treat your pet without the risk of spilling or leaving a mess. This is a low-calorie, no bulk treat so it wont ruin meal time. There are 3 flavors available: Savory Chicken, Braised Liver and Smoky Bacon. They’re even available for cats!
You can get your pets Lickety Stik® from www.petsafe.net/licketystik. These have been a great solution for us and Charlie loves licking his Lickety Stik®! He gets just as excited when he sees the Lickety Stik® as he does when he hears a treat bag.
Bionic® Stuffer Dog Toy
If you have an aggressive chewer then you’ll definitely want to look into Bionic® Toys. They’re made to stand up against aggressive chewers without ripping, tearing or becoming punctured.
Charlie chews on anything, whether it’s bolted down or not. No, seriously. Since he’s a larger breed dog he has the ability to cause a lot of destruction in a small amount of time. Shoes, purses, desks and tables are just a few things he’s destroyed in the few months we’ve had him. He’s bored with regular chew toys. Did I mention he ate a tennis ball?!
The Bionic Stuffer® Toy is brightly colored and extra strong. Once I stuff it with his treats he’s in chewing heaven. When I find him chewing on something he shouldn’t be I just fill the toy with some treats and toss it. He runs for it every time! If you’re looking for a toy that will stand up to your dogs chewing you can get a Bionic Stuffer® from www.bionicplay.com.
Spring Naturals™ Grain-Free Dinners and Treats
As I’ve said before, I pay special attention to what Charlie eats. I make sure there are no by-products, meat meal or grains in his food and treats. He’s part of our family and I only want the best for him.
Spring Naturals™ Grain-Free Dinners and Treats are a great alternative to his usual food. This food is made from real meat, poultry or fish and that is the first ingredient on the label. It also includes whole vegetables and whole fruits. They don’t include any meat, fish or poultry meals. They also don’t include corn, wheat, soy, potato, starch or rice!
What’s even better is that Spring Naturals™ Grain-Free Dinners and Treats are made in the USA by a family owned company. Charlie absolutely loved his Chicken Dinner. He didn’t hesitate to eat it as he does with many new brands.
