Review: iPet Gear Basic Collar


81SLdCD0mLL._SL1500_

Great basic color if you are looking for something with no frills. Made of a 1 inch wide, thick heavy duty thick nylon with steel connectors. Has an adjustable loop design with no buckle or snap connectors. A basic review for a basic collar.

Review: Pet Resolve Dog Training Collar


711564e76b97a213e29cac130441fdcf66606bef

I was sent the Pet Resolve dog training collar to review. As many of you may have read we recently got a new dog Barnaby. We believe that he is part pit bull, Australian Shepard, or as I like to refer to11050247_10153322381247270_5272744440518526643_n him, a goofball. We adopted him from the local humane society and he is an amazing smart dog. Has only had one accident in the house however he still has lots of pup in him and will not come to his name outside. Every little scent has him running away from me and leads to me running after him like a lunatic yelling for him.

When I was asked to review the pet resolve dog training collar I jumped at the opportunity. Granted the idea of putting any animal in any pain is NOT okay with me. So I have always been skittish at the idea of using a “shock collar” because they do sound painful. However after some experimenting, this collar is not painful, its more annoying and startling. We have started to use this collar and so far we are slowly but surely seeing some results. It has been best used at the dog park where there are some distractions. I will let you know after longer use on how Mr.Barnaby is progressing.

So some of the cool features of the Pet Resolve Dog Training Collar are:

  •  Train up to 3 dogs with a range of convenient behaviors!
  •  The Dog Training Collar with Remote has a super long 1200 meter range for easy outdoor training in the widest areas! Perfect alternative to the GPS dog training collar.
  •  Variable shock levels; train up to 3 dogs at once, with up to 10 levels of continuous or single shocks, for safe, efficient training, allowing you to teach your dog a range of commands!
  •  Water Resistant construction. Wont harm the collar or the dog if they go swimming! 
  • Rechargeable Li-ion battery for long lasting training without having to constantly change batteries! 

You can find out more at the Pet Resolve website or purchase it here on Amazon for $89.00

Review: Paw Choice foaming mousse dog Shampoo

81c+pyETEyL._SL1500_

You are a pretty lucky person if your dog enjoys baths. Barnaby acts like I’m a terrorist water boarding him and I usually end up more wet than the dog does.

I jumped on the opportunity to try out Paw Choice foaming mousse dog Shampoo that is scented like Mango & pomegranate.

Paw Choice makes their product in the United States out of premium natural ingredients and they are 100% committed to the safety of our pets and its veterinarian formulated to clean the skin and coat and remove any odor. It requires no water or rinsing and it is scented  like Fresh mango and pomegranate (yum!). Its an all natural coconut derived formula meant for all fur types and works great on sensitive skin.

I love that it is water-less and that I don’t have to worry about getting more of a bath than my dog when I use it. I also love that it is a pump rather than a spray so it doesn’t scare my pup. Also since I don’t need water I can use it anywhere anytime!

You can purchase the Paw Choice Foaming Mousse Dog Shampoo on Amazon for $15.97

Review: 2 Dog Whistle Set

11050247_10153322381247270_5272744440518526643_n50229aa28d615a1ed7cae515509eb324425a60b9

Some of you may know that I recently had to get our dear kitty Yeti put to sleep. As you can imagine this crushed my toddler and after a few days we went to the Cedar Valley Humane Society and rescued a pup by the name of Barnaby. I should say that Barnaby rescued us from a funk that we were in from missing our dear Yeti. As any dog you may adopt may not be up to par on the typical commands such as , sit, stay etc. and suprisingly Barnaby was good at sitting, he caught on quick to lay down and he shakes whenever he feels like it. However Saturday 11391526_10206029813977576_6648278344767352199_nnight I learned the hard way that Barnaby does not come to his name! He booked it from my backyard and I high tailed it for a half mile trying to catch his little but.  Luckily a neighbor found him for us and we got him back home 12 hours later. It was a LONG 12 hours wondering where I new fur baby was.

I recently got the chance to review this 2 Dog Whistle set and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Did you know that it is possible to have multiple frequencies  on a whistle? Psh I didn’t!  So you can  have different frequencies to have your dog sit, stay, come, Shake etc or you can use it for discipline over either a short or a long distance.

Since it is far reaching it would have been awesome to have last weekend as he was running from me and not paying attention to me yelling his name. I’m sure the neighbors now think that I’m a crazy lady and this could have at least semi saved my image. And since it doesn’t actually harm the dog in any way I can honestly say I would not have felt bad 5a6559d679798dc51ad93974ae84a3699760a6f4using it! Iove that it is small and lightweight so that I can put it on my keychain and keep it with me.

So For $19.95 this is what you will be sent:

  • 1 premium High Pitched Frequencies Dog Whistle
  • 1 High Quality Double Attachment Lanyard
  • 1 Anti Lost Pet ID-Tag Pendent
  • 1 Instruction guide Ebook
  • 3 ultimate dog training & Health guides.

Pretty amazing… think of it as a get started dog training kit!  Purchase it here!
