It’s always great to give your dog a job after a walk that makes the transition from all your attention to being by themselves easier. Dog toys are easy to make for the week or night before and lots of variety as well.
Kongs are great for chewing, teething, boredom, digging, barking, crate training, weight management, and can even help with separation anxiety.
Dog treats are a must! Highly recommend trying out a couple different brands to find the perfect one that your dog loves. Also, pay close attention to the ingredients and remember, treats shouldn’t replace their meal.
The Zuke’s Mini Naturals are great because they contain no corn, wheat, or soy and their small size makes them great training treats.
Natural Balance treats are another great option as they are grain-free and contain no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
I love this training pouch because you can easily carry your dog’s toys and treats. This one also has a built in dog poop bag holder.
Fun During Walks
Below are two of my favorite books that can help you to make your walks more engaging and yes, FUN! Start by teaching your dog simple tricks and go from there. Good rule of thumb is to not only train during your walks but at home as well.
101 Dog Tricks
Teach your dog classic dog tricks like how to fetch the paper, roll over, take a bow, bring the remote, and more!
The Beginner’s Guide to Dog Agility
In this beginner’s guide, you’ll learn about pre-agility training, correction-free training, and all about agility training techniques.
Want to know what’s the best food for your dog? Or maybe you’re curious about learning more training tricks? The book below is perfect for you if you want a clear understanding of both care and training in general.
Whole Dog Journal
This well-rounded handbook covers everything from nutrition and training to understanding and having fun with your dog.
Must haves for everyday life with your dog! I personally lean towards one of these three leash types and my all time favorite poop bags below. If you walk your dog at night or in the early morning, you absolutely need a head lamp.
Dog waste bags are a must. These are a popular choice because they are easy to open/detach and their extra water resistant coating keeps everything dry and helps to minimize odors. Bonus: They’re also eco-friendly/100% oxo-biodegradable!
Head Lamp for Walking Your Dog at Night. This one is comfortable and lightweight and also good for running, camping, etc.
Bungee Dog Leash
This shock-absorbing dog leash helps prevent sudden jolts. It’s also reflective for night time walking.
Leather Dog Leash
A heavy duty leather dog leash like this one is great for large dogs like German Shepherds, etc.
Nylon Dog Leash
If you prefer a nylon leash, this is a good, durable option. I love that it has reflective stitching.
