Stuff We Love - Spring 2012
Hendrix is super in love with his new home from Petmate! Aside from the handy two doors
that lock, he and I know he’s safe during our drives. It also seems likely that he enjoys sitting
in his comfy crate more than sitting on my lap.—Celine (From $50, petmate.com)
Kissable Probiotic Spray is just what I need to deal with my Timmy’s ongoing dental
problems. It reduces plaque-causing bacteria while replenishing the good bacteria for a
balanced, healthy mouth. So glad to have found this.—Cecilia ($20, kissabledog.com)
The combo of instant positive feedback and ease of use makes clickers a must-have. My
dogs and I have been enjoying the Premier Clik Stik, which adds a telescoping target stick to
the standard clicker, so I can teach them how to “touch” things, a beginning step for many
tricks. Trust me—get one, follow the instructions—you’ll have fun!—Marian ($11, premier.com)
Darth Vader is one of my all time favourite screen villains so I was thrilled to learn that Cali
Girl Collars has launched a whole new line of collars with many famous characters, including
Batman and, yes, Darth Vader. This is a must-have collar if you’re a Star Wars fan.—Omar ($50,
Bow Wow Beds’ solid canvas and screen printed duvets are just, well, perfect. You can’t go
wrong. Choose a graphic chevron print or minimalist, military-inflected canvas duvet stenciled
with your dog’s name, insert a pillow or use to recover an old bed, and voilà, instant style.
—Esther (From $10, bowwowbeds.com)
Just when you thought that new centerpiece was the coolest item in your dining room, BAM!
Think again. Check out these saucy Dachshund cruets and shakers from Roost. Not only will
they impress your dinner-time guests, but they also make dressing a salad way more fun!

It can be chilly year-round up here in the Great White North. My solution? Snuggle up by a
roaring fire with a season of Buffy and my dogs on their faux-fur hide bed from The Life of Ryley.
—Sara (From $96, thelifeofryley.com)
This classic Liberty floral print, backed with soft, washable suede, is sweet and pretty,
just like me. The very English fabric is matched in the collar’s construction: it’s handcrafted by
traditional British belt-makers and finished with strong, sturdy saddlery fittings. Anyone fancy
a tea biscuit?—Miniature Dachshund Rose ($60, aristopaws.com)
How cool is this warm, cozy donut bed made from Pendleton wool blanket remnants
direct from the mill? Each Oregon Wooly Goods bed is handmade, one of a kind, and machine
washable, a perfect, snuggly bed for dogs up to 20 pounds.—Jennifer ($75, etsy.com/shop/oregonwoolygoods)
