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