First up we have Train 'Em Tasks. Train 'Em Tasks is an Etsy shop that makes task cards packs for training. They offer agility, Rally, competitive obedience and pet/basic training (I believe these are mostly, if not all, AKC based). In each category there's different packs you can choose; for example, you could pick an agility pack and go with Agility Jump Skills or a Rally Pack and pick Novice. Here's a bit about the shop:
Mom and I are training for Rally-o, and I have my first trial in March, so we picked the AKC Rally Novice Task Pack. The pack has 34 of the 36 Rally Novice signs (start and finish excluded), and four "PLAY!" cards. They came in a good sized drawstring bag that's easy to have both the cards and treats and even a toy in it, and, with the of a carabiner, clips easily to your belt loop so you can take it on the go.
There are a few ways you can use these cards. You can do as they're intended to be used, and grab a few cards (at random, or the ones you need to practice on) and work those exercises, or use them to set up a mini Rally course so you and your dog can get comfortable doing these sequences and get a good flow going. That's how Mom and I have been doing them, and it's a blast! DM: I knew Nola would like Rally, but I wasn't anticipating how much she'd LOVE it!
Awesome service (Mom sent several emails back and forth with the shop owner that weren't even related to the review; she was giving us some much appreciated Rally pointers)
Comes with a bag
Very fast shipping
Easy to read print
I give Train 'Em Tasks my highest rating of 5/5 stars!
Up next is PetBox. PetBox is a monthly subscription box that brings your dog or cat premium goodies you get to customize, and for each box sent out PetBox feeds a rescue pet. You can customize the box for your dog, cat or both. Tell them your pet's size, age, gender, ect. You can pick everything in your box, or choose to be surprised. That's something I really loved about this! With every other box I've seen, you don't get a say in what your pet gets. This way, you can choose what your pet would actually like/use, and not waste your money on things they won't touch.
Now we have Zututh, makers of dog toothbrushes in your choice of manual or automatic. If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know we're fanatic on dental health here; I get my teeth brushed every night, and at 3 years old my teeth are in immaculate shape. My vet always compliments my pearly whites!
I was sent both their automatic and manual toothbrushes, both in size small. The head of these brushes is unique in it's shape, the handle is easy to grip, and they're a very good price. However, the toothbrush isn't long enough to reach my back teeth very well. So if you're like me and have a long, skinny muzzle, these might be a bit difficult to use.
