10 Useful Products for Pet & Assistance Dogs
Here are some dog products that I have found useful for our pet and assistance/ service dogs.
Hands-Free Waist Wearing – FREE YOUR HANDS – You’re now able to multi-task while being active with your dog. Talk on your phone, carry a drink or both. The leash gives you total freedom and allows free arm swing for optimal performance while exercising with your dog.

We have had 2 styles and this style was easier to use. The hands-free pickup means no more slobbery balls or bending over.

Dog Harness & Patches
The fit depends on the size of the dog. Adjustable front and underbelly straps; removable chest plate; quick release buckle. Removable/Interchangeable DO NOT PET patches included for both sides of the vest.

Choose to wear using the removable adjustable waistband, or strong metal belt clip. Holds training treats, accessories, dog toys and built-in dog poop bag holder. Safely store your smartphone, money or keys in the two zippered pouches.

I have tried a few dog bowls and have not been happy with any of them. The folding canvas type leaked with water in it., but is fine for dry food.

The folding silicone types are cheap at under $5. They hold water and was good until it split on the folds.

Automatic Water Bowl
We have this outside, and overall it is a good system. The dogs cannot move it or tip the water out. The only problem is a green stain in the bottom lip which is hard to clean.

Stainless Steel Bowl
The Stainless Steel bowl has lasted with no rust. The anti-skid rubber has come off. We use for food and sometimes water. As puppies, they would tip the water out. Also dishwasher proof.

There are many different types of mats and bedding depending on the size, age of your dog and the purpose of use.
While the puppy is still chewing everything, it is not worth spending the money on a soft and expensive bed.
Having a mat trained dog makes it easier when on outings and visiting friends. A thin mat, blanket or towel which can be rolled or folded are the most suitable for outings.
I keep a packet with me, especially for outings. Great to sanitize your hands as well as use on your dog. Multipurpose Pet Wipes can be used to deodorize coat, and clean face, feet and butt of your dog. Antibacterial and hypoallergenic.

Pet deShedding Tool
Another product that I just love especially for Nudge with the double coat of a Labrador. The deShedding brush is suitable for both long & short haired pets. The deShedding edge reaches through topcoat to safely and easily remove loose hair and undercoat.

I purchased the grinder due to hand weakness and the dogs were not impressed. It took them a long time to allow the sound near them. Then the vibration movement of the nail on the sandpaper had them running every time they looked at the grinder.

I gave these 4 stars because I cannot use them. Others in the family use them for me. We have had no problem but reading the reviews others have given negative reviews. The Clippers have been blunt not cutting the nails cleanly or crushing the nail.

Dog Car Seat Protector
This product has saved our back seat many times. Waterproof fabric protects when been at the beach. Sides can be zipped up to prevent scratching at the door or left down for more room. For large dogs, the full-size backseat or boot protector will give more room.
