We only suggest this video if your dog actually watches the TV. The Dog Sitter DVD is specially designed to stimulate and entertain your dog while you are away. Filled with the sights and sounds of large birds, raccoons, squirrels, mice, cats and dogs, your dog can enjoy “the outdoors” from the comfort and protection of your home. Also available: Volume II
Dog Music CD
This CD gets excellent overall reviews for calming your dog or for separation anxiety.
Dog TV Subscription
DOGTV provides television for dogs as a 24/7 digital TV channel with dog – friendly programing scientifically developed to provide the right company for dogs when left alone. Through years of research with some of the world’s top pet experts, special content was created to meet specific attributes of a dog’s sense of vision and hearing and supports their natural behavior patterns. The result: a confident, happy dog, who’s less likely to develop stress, separation anxiety or other related problems.
Dog Calming Aids:
We recommend the thundershirt. Oscar uses his whenever he is anxious. It works really well! Read our post to learn more about the Thundershirt. It feels like a big hug!
Adaptil Calming Spray
Comforts and reassures dogs and puppies when exposed to stressful situations. Trusted – used by vets, charities and behaviourists. Lasts up to 4 hours and can be reapplied as necessary. No effect on humans or other pets.
Fun Noisey Dog Toys:
We love this chicken! She comes in various sizes and even in various outfits! For our friends in the UK, we have provided a link below, but please note, Henrietta is MUCH cheaper on the USA Amazon site and it appears some sellers will post to the UK/EU. This may be the most cost-effective option.
Crinkets Water Bottle Toy
Okay, Oscar wants one of these and is planning on asking Santa when he sees him at the Pet Store! This product is great fun for any dog that loves to crunch down on plastic bottles just for the fun of hearing the noise! The great thing is that the bottle is inside the Crinket so no nasty plastic in the mouth! Comes with plastic bottle inside.
This puzzle chew toy is made of natural rubber. It dispenses a treat and is made of durable natural rubber.
What dog doesn’t love a Kong Wobbler? It’s sturdy and when you put a treat inside it, it makes for loads of fun trying to get it out! Comes in a variety of sizes/prices.
Wobble Wag Giggle Ball
When the ball moves, it produces a unique giggle sound that will excite and delight your pup, enticing them into longer, more rewarding play sessions. Wobble Wag Giggletrade; Ball is made of flexible and durable phthalatefree vinyl to ensure that it is safe for your pooch. The ball uses simple tubes to produce the noise without the use of batteries, making it longlasting and easy to maintain.
Clearly engaging, clearly rewarding, clearly fun. The fresh take on the stimulating puzzle craze. The interactive brain teaser is designed for long-lasting play. With a pliable, orbee-tuff outer shell, and unique inner maze. Stuff with treats and enjoy. This toy is intended for puzzle-play, not chewing, so it is not rated on The chew-o-meter scale. We suggest supervised play only. To clean, fill with hot water, shake vigorously and rinse.
