Animals and the Afterlife

Bully Sticks
We are big fans of Bully Sticks and have found an amazing resource for our favorite training tool – Best Bully Sticks.  Avrum, the owner, took time to educate us on the vast differences in bully sticks – strangely enough not all bullys are created equal.  The sticks you can get from Best Bully’s are all natural, grass fed, free range, with no growth hormones, dried & baked,  not irradiated, high protein, low fat, low scent and come from the best place to get the highest quality beef – South America.  With all of that, they are also the lowest priced sticks we have found.  Do yourself and your dog a big favor and click here to get the best value in Bully Sticks anywhere – and be sure to check out all of their great bones and dog treats, they have a great selection.

The Unseen Bean
303-772-1154 - Colorado
This coffee is organic, shade-tree grown and fair-trade beans - all which shouts "good for the world". Jane Goodall introduced us to this gentleman, Gerry Leary, a Master roaster, who has been blind from birth. He and his wonderful guide dog, Midnight, are quite a team who take the passion of blind roasted coffee very seriously.

Collars & Leashes

We are very picky about the collars and leashes we recommend.  The wider the better for the comfort of the dog and it should be made of a stiff material that does not collapse and become narrow if the dog were to pull against it.  Narrow collars can cause damage to the trachea and cause too much discomfort.

The same can be said for leashes.  A ¾” - 1” wide leash made of a double thick nylon is the best as it is more comfortable in your hand and it has greater weight with which to communicate.  Light weight leashes are no good – it is like trying to take your dance partner around the floor by one hair – you have to work too hard to get results.  By holding your partners ponytail you can do less and accomplish way more.  Remember – always do the least amount possible to get results – it is what is fair to the dog.

EZ Leash (collars)
We like their collars for the little guys.  Their collars are wide (greater comfort for the dog) and easy to adjust over their heads.

Hamilton (collars & leashes)
We like Hamilton for their 18” collars and larger.  Their collars are stiff & wide (greater comfort for the dog) and their leashes are comfortable in your hands.

Doug and Elizabeth’s philosophies are deeply rooted in creating a relationship of respect between you and your dog.
