I only recently adopted my dog ​​Mango, but I’m already completely in love with her. I mean, how could I not be?

I adore this little creature so much, I find it almost impossible not to spoil it rotten. That being said, it’s been a bit of a journey to find pet products that work for us because she’s a bit picky when it comes to toys and treats and I’m a little anal reluctant when it comes to. is to clean.

If you’re a new dog parent or just looking to switch up your current pet products, here are 12 items I’ve tested that I absolutely don’t swear by.

15ft Recall Dog Training Leash

Barber Brittany | Narcity

Price: $ 14.98

Details: One of my main goals with Mango is to get his recall match on point. We ordered this 15ft leash from Amazon and it helped a lot in training. I also love that it gives her the freedom to walk around and do her thing, without having to worry about her taking off. It is also available in seven colors and in longer lengths.

MudBuster Portable Dog Paw Cleaner

Amazon Canada

Price: $ 17.99

Details: Since I welcomed Mango to my home, I have learned to better manage the damage. But sometimes wiping your paws with a towel after a muddy walk is not enough. This dog paw cleaner comes in a bunch of different sizes and colors. This is perfect for those days when your puppy is really dirty, but you don’t really have the time (or the will) to bathe him. Simply fill the mug with water, insert your dog’s paw, wiggle it a bit, and ta-da! Clean paws!

West Paw Zogoflex Zisc Flying Disc Dog Toy

Barber Brittany | Narcity

Price: $ 15.95 ($ 16.95)

Details: Aside from his favorite treats, I don’t think my dog ​​likes anything more than this flying disc toy. I like that it’s super durable so I won’t have to buy a replacement anytime soon. It floats too, which is great as Mango enjoys swimming and playing fetch in the water.

Silicone suction dog feeder

Amazon Canada

Price: $ 16.99

Details: This dog feeder is exactly what I needed for Mango to relax during the baths. You just have to spread peanut butter on it and stick it on your tiles or on the side of your tub to keep your dog distracted long enough to give him a good scrub.

JobSite Multipurpose Starter Tray

Barber Brittany | Narcity

Price: $ 23.15

Details: Mango is an absolute slob when it comes to eating and drinking water. I first tried bowls with a silicone bottom to keep them from slipping, but she ended up knocking them over. This simple starter tray saved my kitchen from puddles and a tsunami of kibble, and for that I’m eternally grateful. You can also get it as a two-pack ($ 32.99), which can be useful if you have multiple dogs.

Nature’s Miracle Dog Stain Remover & Stain Remover

Barber Brittany | Narcity

Price: $ 11.69 ($ 13.51)

Details: Although his bathroom skills are quite good, Mango is still a puppy and has accidents from time to time. A friend of mine recommended Nature’s Miracle specifically because it is safe for pets and eliminates odors that might make your dog repeat an accident in the same spot. So far this product has worked wonders and permanently eliminates odors and stains.

Animal hair epilator roller

Amazon Canada

Price: $ 27.99

Details: The moulting season is upon us and I don’t know what I would do without this product. I actually have to invest in a suitable pet vacuum cleaner, but until I save enough money, this thing will keep my couch cool for now.

We have the size for dogs between 15 and 30 kg, but you can also get it for dogs over 30 kg and under 30 kg.
