3-Play Turtles Starting at $9.99

Chewing is a perfectly normal, healthy behavior for dogs; they can spend hours working on a bone, a toy, or a stick they found in the woods, and it helps keep their jaws strong and teeth clean. Now, when they turn their attention to your favourite pair of shoes, the couch, or even your homework, it’s time for an intervention.

Many veterinarians discourage giving dogs objects that are harder than their teeth due to risks to their enamel. The solution? 3-Play Turtles!

There’s even a hidden compartment that you can hide treats in to make playtime more stimulating.

Rechargeable Catnip Infused Felt Balls $14.99 

Catnip can be just as much fun for owners as it is for their fur babies (come on, do you ever get tired of watching their antics?). But then the party’s over.

Pet Insurance Pricing varies

Remember when you were a kid and hated to get underwear and socks under the tree? And remember when you were a grownup and loved to get underwear and socks because they are practical and awesome? This is like that. 

We don’t like to think of our furry friends getting sick or injured. But if they do, we are often shocked at how much vet visits, tests, and medications cost. Pet insurance helps us care for our loved ones throughout their lives without breaking the bank. There are so many options out there: Comparison shop, search for issues common for the specific breed, and ensure those conditions are covered (e.g. hip dysplasia in golden retrievers). 

Snuffle Nosework Mat Starting at $29.98

Your dog’s natural habitat may be the couch, but when it comes to mealtime, they tend to go more primal. Many have a natural instinct to forage in the wild and/or scarf their food. The Snuffle Nosework Mat allows them to do both in a safe, constructive way. Put their nose and brain to work, searching for treats and kibble on the machine-washable mat. It is ideal for medium to high-energy breeds that need stimulation, dogs who love games, and puppers who eat too quickly.
