Lots of big dog stuff here! Here's some nice things for the little guys (~25 lbs and under). Many of these items are good for big dogs, too; will note them with a * sign and list them first in each section.


  • Himalayan Dog Cheese Chew*: Long-lasting hard cheese chews; can be microwaved to make "cheesy popcorn" for your dog when it gets small enough to pose a swallowing hazard. Comes in a variety of sizes.

  • Brushless Toothpaste*: Our dog LOVES this stuff, and it keeps his breath smelling awesome. Also helps keep his teeth clean. May want to introduce these into the dog's diet slowly, as some are sensitive to the ingredients but acclimate over time. Comes in an even smaller size for the really tiny dogs, and bigger sizes for the big dogs :)

  • Freeze-dried chicken*: Easy to break into small pieces and sprinkle over your dog's kibble or regular food.

  • Stella & Chewy Meal Mixers*: Great to sprinkle over your dog's regular food for both nutrition and novel taste.

  • Fruitables Minis: Small and low-calorie; great for clicker-training your dog. Comes in a wide variety of flavors.

  • Crazy Dog Bacon Treats*: Also small and very-low calorie; another good clicker-training tool.


  • KONG Mini Squeaky Tennis Balls*: Great for dogs who like either balls, squeaky toys, or both! My dog had zero interest in balls before these, and they're still the only ones he'll play with. Come in lots of sizes; not good for strong dogs who like to chew up their balls.

  • Dog Tornado*: Easy introductory puzzle toy that's not too big for little dogs. Good for kibble, wet food, and treats. May be too big for dogs under 7 lbs.

  • Dog Tower: Another great introductory puzzle toy suitable for small dogs. Good for kibble and small treats. Not sure how this'll hold up to big dogs, although I think it'd be fine with the gentler ones.

  • JW Treat Pod: Kind of like the Kong, but better suited for gentler, 'licking'-type dogs. Easier to clean out as well, IMO; the small Kongs are so hard to get completely clean even with a brush.

  • Outward Hound Flirt Pole: Fun and easy exercise, the Outward Hound version is more lightweight and suited for small dogs.

    Harnesses, Collars, & Safety

  • Pet Stairs*: Large collection of pet stairs. Some on this page are suitable for large dogs as well.

  • Hurtta Active Dog Harness*: High-quality dog harness for dogs that love to run around the outdoors in all kinds of weather and elements. Comes in a variety of sizes; for dogs 7+ lbs.

  • Ruffwear Swamp Cooler*: Comes in XXS, XS, and S. Great for keeping your dog cool in the summer if you don't live in a humid area.

  • Hurtta Pet Overall*: Great for rain and snow; comes in a variety of small sizes. Fit perfectly on our Pom mix and very high quality.

  • Musher's Secret*: Protect your dog's paws in cold weather.

  • Sleepypod Clickit*: Crash-tested car harness, comes in a variety of sizes.

  • Sleepypod Mobile Carrier/Car Seat/Pet Bed: Crash-tested dog bed/car seat/carrier!

  • Lil Pals Step-in Mesh Harness: For the seriously small dogs.

  • Ollydog Marin Collar: Completely waterproof, rustproof, extremely durable, easy to put on...the perfect collar!


  • The Stuff Detangler and Conditioner*: Keeps your dog's coat looking clean and glossy; easy to apply and doesn't have a strong odor.

  • Lil Pals Grooming Kit: Miniature grooming tools for your miniature dog at a very affordable price.

We don't live in Colorado (yet, we actually just started to apply for jobs out there and hope to move to the Denver-area later this year. We've already mapped out the drive and done some brainstorming about where we'll stay on the road since from where we live (Pittsburgh), it's about a 24 hour drive, so let me know if you need any help on the research we've done on that), but do camp (in OH, PA, and MD), hike, and road trip with our 1.5 year old Golden Retriever pretty frequently when the weather is warm. I'll discuss what we have for our dog's set ups.

Road Trips

  • Car Harness (we use the Ruffwear Loadup) to help keep him safe in the car and to keep him in the backseat
  • Car Seat Cover to protect your car
  • Cleanup Supplies just in case your dog gets sick (my policy if that if you have them, you probably won't need them. But that one time you don't have them is when you'll probably need them). We keep a bottle of Nature's Miracle and paper towels in the trunk.
  • Something to carry your dog's kibble in. We use the Ruffwear Kibble Kaddie
  • Travel Dog Bowls. We really like these Doggie Bento Bowls for travel, since they're sturdy and the top one is keeps water in without leaking.
  • Treats
  • Crate for the hotel room/wherever you'll be staying on the road if your dog is crate trained.
  • Leash and poop bags for when you take your dog out to potty at various rest stops, etc.
  • Toys for when you get to your destination/your nightly lodging
  • A bag to put everything in. We just use a folding duffle we've had lying around the house for a while.
  • Collar with vaccination tags, as well as a tag with your home address (if it's a short trip) or the address of where you will be staying (if it's a longer trip)
  • Doggie First Aid Kit (include items such as disinfectant, hydrogen peroxide (can be used to clean wounds or induce vomiting), vet wrap, gauze pads, activated charcoal, tick key, thermometer, ace wrap, scissors, tweezers, styptic powder, etc.)


  • Tie-out stake and tie-out line for the campsite. It's extremely useful not having to hold your dog's leash constantly while you're setting up camp, starting fires, collecting wood, etc.
  • Something for your dog to sleep on (optional). We use the Ruffwear Highlands Sleeping Bag and the Ruffwear Highlands Sleeping Pad (we got both for over half off at L.L. Bean). Summit usually ends up ditching the sleeping bag and trying to climb into ours and cuddle though. The sleeping pad is really nice to have since we can easily move it to near the fire so he has a nice place to lay.
  • Toys you don't mind getting dirty. We especially like light up and glow in the dark toys for at night around the campsite since we can actually find them once it starts to get dark.
  • Food and some way to store it (we generally use the Ruffwear Kibble Kaddie for this too and store it in either the car or a bear box when it's not being used).
  • Travel Bowls. For camping we tend to use the Ruffwear Quencher Cinch for food.
  • Water and bowl (we use a Nalgene Bottle with a [Pupwerks PupCup](, which when not in use, fits snugly on the bottom of the water bottle)).
  • Treats
  • Leash and poop bags
  • Doggie First Aid Kit
  • Light-up Dog Necklace to make your dog easier to see at night


  • Harness/backpack. Summit has the Ruffwear Palisades Pack for hiking, but so far has only used the removable harness from it and not the pack (we didn't want him carrying the pack last summer while he was still growing and can't wait to try this summer).

  • Leash and poop bags. We really like the Chaco Dog Leash since it has a buckle to allow us to clip him to different places, and you can adjust the leash to clip it around yourself to walk hands-free if needed.

  • Longline or Flexi-leash (controversial, we personally hate flexi-leashes EXCEPT if we're hiking in an area where there are not many people/dogs nearby. I would not recommend it unless your dog has excellent recall in addition to the flexi). This allows your dog to wander a little farther away from you and sniff and explore on his own a little bit.
  • Water and bowl (we use the Nalgene with the Pupwerks PupCup again for hiking)
  • Treats
  • Doggie First Aid Kit, especially if it's a longer or overnight hike

    Additionally, for camping, I'd strongly recommend doing some camping training in your home before taking your dog camping for real. We set our tent up in our living room and slept in it at home a couple of times with our dog just to let him get a feel for what things would be like before we went outside camping for the first time. Lots of treats were involved to show him that being calm in the tent was a good thing. Also start small. The first time we took our dog camping was at a campsite in Ohio about 20 minutes from our parents' house. We made sure it was just one night and that we had an easy-out in case Summit wasn't ready and started to freak out or disrupt the other people camping. Everything went perfectly but if Summit hadn't been having a good time, we could have quickly packed up and left and slept at either of our parents' houses where he would have felt more comfortable.

    In terms of hiking, also start small. Start with shorter, easier hikes that take maybe 30-60 minutes. Then work up to longer, steeper, more challenging hikes.

    Finally, for road tripping, especially in places that you don't know as well, I strongly recommend taking a look at and These websites will allow you to easily look up different dog-friendly establishments (such as restaurants, hotels, parks, activities, etc.) in the areas that you are traveling.

  1. Blue BlueTooth It's blue and bluetooth! And happens to be the blue version of the speaker I use all the time. (frys sells it refurbished at an epic discount from time to time)

  2. Summer kids Summer dress It says summer AND it's for summer! I don't know what strawberrying summer means though...

  3. disgusting egg seperator It's food related. It's seriously weird.

  4. German Shepherd Umbrella I want to get this for my mom. It looks like a pup we had and she never buys happy things for herself.

  5. Sharon Shinn 12 Houses Series Fantasy world with magic and swords by one of my favorite authors.

  6. A spot of bother Ebook I kept meaning to put on my kindle because $1

  7. Leather Dog Collar with German Shepherd Faces Making that one easy for me! I've been eyeing that for my GSD

  8. Skull Art I just love staring at it, but have never found an excuse to get it. So I figure that counts. I tend to focus more on useful things in general.

  9. V for Vendetta Great movie, and a pretty amazing message about what can happen if a society becomes complacent.

  10. Tactical survival kit Being able to cut wood, start fire, etc will be pretty important. Never underestimate the ability to cut and carve spears.

  11. Slideboard Trainer I am trying to get back into rollerblading, but my heart is making that difficult. I've been eye one of these for a while because I could train in the house for bad health days/weather/ to find out how far I can go now and hopefully improve it without crashing out halfway through a park.

  12. Add on Betta Plants Because fish are cool

  13. Sharks! Because sharks. Is it sharks? Cuz I like sharks.

  14. Standing Wheelchair They should be cheaper because they seriously improve the health of wheelchair bound people. A sibling company to one my husband and I used to work intended to get him one through their charitable side, so this one was an easy find for me.

  15. More sharks!!! I hadn't seen this before, might be nice when I am vending. Why you gotta go make me look at stuff? LOL

  16. vanilla essential oil I use this. It is amazing. Almost like baking vanilla, warm and lovely.

  17. Fashion Plate Kit Not the exact one I had, but the same idea. It was a lot of fun, and I design and sew now so...

  18. Writers Toolbox Something to help with the inevitable writers block, to relax, and play with ideas.

  19. Super Wide angle lens I've been photo obsessing for almost a year now, and am now trying to sell some prints when I vend at fairs!

  20. Octopus TP holder Hes got 8 arms, so why not? Makes me giggle.
u/specialgreenonion · 2 pointsr/RATS

I bought a lot of it off zooplus but you can find pretty much all of it on Amazon! Here's the links:

Carrot treat holder/boredom breaker

Hanging boredom breaker

Boredom breaker net

Wooden stairs/platform - this one isnt exactly the same as the one I have but very close

Wooden bridge #1

Wooden bridge #2

Grass mat

Bird perches or lava ledges, whichever your prefer.

Wooden cabin #1

Wooden cabin #2

Wooden cabin #3

Hanging bridge/ladder

Boredom breaker garland

Silver and pink sputniks but they seem to be unavailable at the moment - keep checking back

Pink and purple sputniks on zooplus

The triple purple/pink hammock I made myself with some fleece and cotton. If you search "diy honeycomb hammock", you'll find lots of easy tutorials on how to make them! It's definitely a bit too small, it was my first attempt. Go bigger than you think you should is my advice lol

This is the fleece I use as bedding

And this

Anytime I get new fabrics, I wash them, dry them, then freeze them for 24-48 hours. I also freeze any new wooden toys, products etc. Prevents a mites problem!

Sputniks are a bit hard to find on amazon, they only come in the smaller sizes it seems like. Zooplus only ships across the EU but Im sending the link anyway in case youre in Europe!

Also it took me around 4 months to build up a collection of this stuff, dont feel pressured to make your cage look pretty or to have lots of stuff all at once! All that matters is your ratties have what they need, and then you can build up from there :)

u/1angrypanda · 3 pointsr/Dogtraining

Don't force her into the crate. That will only make the fear worse. If you need to leave, give lots and lots of high value treats, and a stuffed toy frozen with something high value.

Is she still scared of the crate if you move it to a different room? Sometimes this can sort of reset something for a dog.

I would make most of the good things in her life happen in the crate. Put her meals in the crate, put a Kong with yummy goodness in the crate. Leave the door open until she is willingly going in and not running right back out when given treats. Look into crate games, those are helpful too.

I would also recommend dtap collars, the adaptl ones are best. They also make a scent diffuser you can put next to the crate. these do take about 30 days to kick in. Other calming aids can also be helpful, I've had the best luck with rescue remedy. Some dogs also react very well to thunder vests. Once your dog is calmer in general you could potentially start working on desensitization to thunder/loud noises.

If you're American, expect tomorrow (and potentially tonight and the rest of the week depending on local fireworks laws) to be rough as well.

u/oreobees · 3 pointsr/shiba

Looks like you have a good list going, remember to update your pups microchip with your address and get him/her a tag with your details.

We got a 36 inch crate and it's plenty big for our boy (he's around 30 pounds).

Puppia harness is a great starter harness, it's soft and doesn't have a bunch of metal jingling pieces which our puppy HATED on his harness our breeder gave us.

Kibble, check out dog food advisor for reviews and ratings of foods content, we were using grain free salmon and sweet potato from chicken soup for the soul, it's decently priced and well rated I can't find it anywhere atm so we're switching him back to their normal kibble.

Salmon Oil is a lifesaver in the winter, our pup gets terribly dry skin and extremely itchy without it.

Start out with a puppy kong, they sell kong fillers that are cheese and peanut butter flavored, our puppy was pretty picky at first and only ate the cheese one, didn't like frozen kongs either.

I'd start with a Basic Collar here's a Dog Tag Silencer and a Break-away collar for outdoors or dog park. A dog was choked unconscious at our park so I typically just keep our guys ID tags on his harness and don't use a collar, but if you do I definitely recommend a break-away if you are primarily using a harness with it.

Items we found useful: Bed Liner, Crate Fence, Kong, Stainless Steel Bowls (highly reccomend US made do not buy any made in China for health reasons), Zippy Paws Hide and Seek toys, Potty/accident cleaner, Potty Bells, Anti-chew Bitter Apple spray, 50 ft Leash, Retractable Leash, Soft stop Leash extender, Car Seat Belt, Car Booster Seat, Gentle Shampoo, Comb, Travel Water Bottle, Flirt Pole, Special Treats, Chew Stick, Greenies

Sorry for the HUGE list lol, feel free to ask any questions!

u/5603 · 1 pointr/bdsm

I had one for my dog. But it didn't last long even without using it often. The place where you replace the batteries and turn it off broke off. They are awesome but I wouldn't recommend this kind. I'd get a nicer one. It will save you money in the long run to get sometime like this

Have fun!

u/Buy-theticket · 1 pointr/dogs

Just seconding the raw diet suggestion. Especially for an Akita it should be a very easy transition... they were made to eat meat. We get compliments on our dog's coat all the time and our dirty little secret is we very rarely brush him. It's all him and the raw diet making us look good. It's also readily available food, just make sure any bones or anything that you give him are raw. Once they're cooked they can splinter, raw they are fine (even chicken/other bird bones).

For keeping him cool, I'm not sure what kind of access you'd have to refrigeration or electricity but there are collars that have reusable ice packs that slip into a pocket to keep the dog's neck, and blood to their brain, cool. Something to think about at least. [One on amazon].(

Also, again depending on what type of accommodations you'll have and how permanent they will be... this summer we got a cool bed for our Akita since we don't have central air and it made a huge difference for his comfort at night. They aren't too big or bulky until you fill them up with water, so you could bring it over with you pretty easily and fill it once you're there. It doesn't sound like it'd work but it makes a huge difference and requires no electricity or anything. Only down side is it's a pain in the ass to have to move around or do anything with once it's filled with water. another amazon link

u/craigster38 · 2 pointsr/RunningCirclejerk

Don't forget one of these. I know it says dog collar, but we're descendants of dogs - that's why they're our best friends. So it's okay to wear it.

u/infortuneshand · 1 pointr/guineapigs

It’s a house (they recently jacked up the price — I wouldn’t recommend buying it for $50 lol). I got it for my pigs, and they really loved sleeping with one pig on top and one on bottom, so I figured I’d put the little pet bed up on top, and they love it!

u/Impolite_sodomite · 9 pointsr/OpenDogTraining

Keeper collar, my friend.

I was also instilled on doing 100% positive only until my puppy gave me a good dose of reality. The R+ people tend to have soft dog breeds. They have never had to deal with a dog like the one you adopted either.

u/watsoned · 0 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

It's kind of an unpopular opinion amongst some crowds, but when it comes to dogs that pull, I think harnesses are awful. I didn't even order them for the clinic past size medium. It only makes it easier for the dog to pull you (I used to explain it to people that they put harnesses on sled dogs...). If she ends up being the sort of dog that pulls (it's too early to tell and you've still got training to do) then I used to always recommend these sorts of collars. Yes, they are scary looking, but for a dog with pulling issues, it's very good at helping to keep them under control. I used to equate it, if you use it properly, to when your parents would pop you on the back of your head to get you to behave. Didn't hurt you but got your attention.

BUT, right now, she's far too little and young for that. Buy a cheap collar and a cheap leash. When you can, leave the leash hooked to the collar so she can get used to it; let her drag it around the house. She's going to hate it. She's going to rebel. That's the hardheaded chocolate lab in her. LOL

u/immigrantpatriot · 2 pointsr/funny

I can’t speak for 5fingers but this is the one my pupper is wearing above. We’ve had it for about a month & it’s been great so far!

I'll post a picture of him if I win :)

That is all...

u/JohnnyricoMC · 1 pointr/gerbil

I've got this wheel for my two little friends and it's remarkably quiet:

It runs on an axle with ball bearings. At first I thought the wheel would have too much mass, but in the evenings one of our two gerbils tends to go full throttle in it.

Also, gerbils like some privacy and some hiding places. Wooden houses or hollowed out coconuts are great. Mine gnawed away the ropes on this one: (bet they were really surprised when the coconut met gravity), so I replaced the upper rope (to suspend it from their ceiling) with a ball chain.

I've also found they enjoy lying in the morning sunlight, so you might want to place the tank somewhere it does get some direct sunlight some times of the day.

u/Hamamelidoxylon · 6 pointsr/gerbil

Thanks! It's the Trixie natural living wheel on Amazon - fingers crossed it will be put to good use!

u/capncait · 3 pointsr/pitbulls

Keep on training, keep building his confidence! It's possible that he'll have some strange boundaries forever, but you can take precautions like getting him a vest that says DO NOT PET or a similar sign that attaches to the leash to prevent him from nipping anyone. I also like this bandana.

Congrats on how far you've come!

u/_ataraxia · 0 pointsr/dogs

i have this LED collar and love it. i wasn't looking for a permanent collar with D rings and such, just something extra shorty could wear during walks for more visibility. this one is easy to cut to size, it's not bulky on his tiny neck, and it's very bright.

u/FrolicMeToHell · 1 pointr/hamsters

I have a 28cm Trixie wheel. I don't find it too loud - definitely substaintially quieter than any wheel I had that attached to the side of a cage.

Is it silent? No. I keep it oiled (with vegetable oil) so it doesn't squeak, but it's not silent, it is however quiet for a hamster wheel. I have my hamster in my bedroom and the wheel never wakes me up or bothers me. I think maybe it did for the first few days? But I got used it pretty quick and I never notice it now :)

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Minnie recommends these ties They are great priced and come in other colors than pink. They do take a few weeks to ship as they come from China

I think Waffles needs one :P

u/thechunkymonkies · 1 pointr/dogs

NiteHowl LED I use this for night walking off-leash, he's easy to see. I like this one better than the recharging ones, I've gone through both, the rechargers don't ever seem to be as bright and the charge doesn't last as long. 1 LED goes months of nightly walks for us.

Reflective Vest If we are walking by the road I'll put this vest on him, but we don't usually walk by the road and he hates vests, I just chose it because he's too big for normal sized stuff and this one has a big range of sizes, we've probably only using it <10 times total, still in perfect condition but probably not enough wear and tear to tell durability.

u/Synaxis · 13 pointsr/dogs

Praise safe play and stop him each and every time he goes for a collar or harness. What you can do - get a cheap breakaway collar like this one for your puppy. Any time Sparta goes for it, play ends completely and immediately. Like, you kick Sparta out into another room entirely and continue playing with the puppy.

This is an absolutely massive risk - if the other dog isn't wearing a breakaway collar and your dog gets his jaw stuck in the collar, the other dog could be strangled and die and/or your dog could break his jaw. You absolutely can't bring him to the dog park while he plays like this.e If you can't break him of it then no dog park. It isn't worth the risk.

u/Lagomorphilic · 3 pointsr/PetMice

It's a wodent wheel. Same with the green one in there. Unfortunately, they are only available online, but they are fantastic wheels. Don't make a peep, easy to clean, solid floor, covered sides, come in tons of colors. Depending on where you look, you might be able to find them for decently cheap. I think I got the red one for $13 total, but it's been a while. The size my girls are using is 11", but the 8" would work well for mice too. Trixie wheels are also very similar in style.

By the way, the clips to hold the wheels up in your cage are genius! I'm totally going to steal that idea for future.

u/Cerulean_Shades · 4 pointsr/aww
u/Fluttermun · 1 pointr/Pets

Have you tried NutureCalm? It's a calming collar that she wears continuously for a month at a time and as a cat lady with a chronically anxious cat myself I've found it works much better than the diffusers since it's on her constantly and releasing the scent directly into her senses.

It's not a perfect end all be all product, my boy still has his fears, but he's been much better with immediate concerns and stress and outside of changing his environment as much as I humanely can, this has been our most natural and non-medicated option that works for us.

If you decide to try it, don't get it from your vet...they charge twice as much for it than amazon or

u/wepa · 5 pointsr/offmychest

So sorry for your loss. They sell breakaway collars that come apart to prevent things like this from happening. Don't blame yourself OP, you probably gave her the best days of her life.

u/RabbitsUnited · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I have this collar for my dog. It is great! Heavy duty, it's been washed many times and the stitching has not been affected. My dog doesn't swim too often, but he does go camping at our cabin a lot. We have a cabin collar for him! Then we don't care how nasty or wet it gets, because he will have a new one on to go home. I usually throw it in the wash when I give him a bath (not often, maybe 6 times a year max).

u/bt3g · 6 pointsr/AbsoluteUnits

Since you said it looks awful because of his short fur I thought I'd recommend Keeper Collars. They're basically prong collars on the inside but look like a regular collar on the outside. I use one!

I have also experienced good results with using Quiet Moments soft chews in conjunction with using Adaptil pheromone collars or spray.

You're NTA OP, but you should consider getting either vest or leash cover that says "do not pet" on it. Something like this-

I made frozen "ice cream" for my husky. It's just greek yogurt (my picky dog does not like regular yogurt) and peanut butter mixed together and frozen in an ice cube trey. You can add a smooshed banana and other fruits as well. I also got my dog a cooling collar like this one

u/SmileCrackin · 1 pointr/pics

Glad to hear you got your dogs back. You should get them embroidered collars. Tags as you know are unreliable. Also get them chipped.

u/stahlpferd · 8 pointsr/aww

Haha buy a light up collar.

u/brict · -2 pointsr/pitbulls

Get a prong collar. Works much better than a harness for keeping them from pulling.

u/chi_lawyer · 1 pointr/AmItheAsshole

Presumably they can read, though. Maybe something like this as a compromise?

Lead length is something I wouldn't expect a non-owner to pick up on.

You should consider a muzzle for areas in which children are present and you may be distracted (which it sounds like happened here, given the lead length).

u/RowdyGorgonite · 1 pointr/dogs

Is there a reason your dog can't wear a collar for his info? You could get one with a name plate or one like this if you're concerned with the tags getting caught. Even when my dog is wearing her harness or backpack she still has her collar on for her ID info.

u/5zepp · 2 pointsr/cats

This was the collar. It surprisingly mellowed out our cat.

u/Contr0lFr34k · 1 pointr/Boxer

We got the collar from Amazon (Direct Link to Collar). The name wasn't after Captain Chaos, but was a compromise after the family totally shut down my C'thulhu and I wasn't willing to go with Chewboxer.

u/NYSenseOfHumor · -1 pointsr/dogs

I understanding have a preferred harness

Try a leash wrap that can also go over the clip on some harnesses, or around the dog’s collar.

Here’s one option , and another.

u/jocularamity · 5 pointsr/Dogtraining

Glad to hear your dog is okay. Stories about dogs getting jaws twisted up in other dogs' collars, or getting collars snagged on fence posts or crates, are all too common.

My pet peeve is when people hang id tags from the live ring on a collar. If/when those tags catch on something, the dog is gonna be stuck, choke, and panic. If your collar tightens at all (for example, a martingale), never attach hanging tags to the live ring and don't leave the collar on the dog unattended.

My dogs play naked, but you can also get collars that break away in emergencies if that's not an option for you.

u/nkdeck07 · 2 pointsr/aww

Look into getting a breakaway collar since the loose ones can still be a choke hazard.
