Shadow’s holiday shopping guide
Winter is a time of gift-giving. And Shadow wanted me to make sure that you keep your dog in mind when you are shopping for the family. Here are some of the things she thinks your pup may enjoy.
This is a no brainer for Shadow. She prefers meals from food toys over a boring bowl any day! Kong Classic Dog Toy is Shadow’s favorite (stuffed with kibble and soft dog food, of course).
Another great choice is West Paw Toppl Treat Toy. It is a little easier for dogs to get the food out. There are lots of others too, but these are our favorites.
Does your dog or puppy enjoy a good chew? The Bully Buddy is a nifty little gadget that makes chewing bully sticks safer by keeping the chunky ends secured so your dog doesn’t swallow them whole.
Tugs and things that fly.
Have you met my dog? She loves to chase and tug. While ChuckIt! Balls remain Shadow’s favorite, two other toys are a close second. The Chuckit! Zipflight Disc (soft Frisbee) and the Kong Wubba tug toys get two paws up.
Favorite new book
(OK—this suggestion comes from Mardi, but Shadow approves). Treat Everyone Like a Dog: How a Dog Trainer’s World View Can Improve Your Life
, by Karen B. London, PhD. If you want to geek out on both dog training and making life better for the humans in your life, this is a book for you. I am really enjoying reading it!
