It’s amazing how quickly just playing this music throughout the shelter can help relax nervous dogs (at people too!)
Thunder Shirts – a comfortable snug coat
We’ve only had these in for a few weeks now, but already they are showing some promise. The tightness of the fabric creates a feeling of safety and comfort for the pup.
These toys work great for bored dogs and fast eaters. They’re a fun way to spice up a boring feeding routine.
Hartz Chew N’ Cleans – long lasting chew toy
These bones last a bit longer than plain bones. The plastic backing wraps around the edible bone part making those tough chewers really work to get to the good bits.
Kongs – a treat filled toy
These toys work great for bored dogs and fast eaters. Smear some peanut butter around the edge and stick a treat at the bottom. Baby carrots also fit well for a healthy alternative.
Squeaking Eggs – great for stuffing in socks
These are small squeaker eggs that fit great in socks. Or stuff into a old, well-loved toy for renewed squeaker fun!
