Dogs serve a very important role in our lives, and as thus, share a special place in our hearts. Our furry friends take on many roles in society, from military and law enforcement service, to helping the disabled and protecting livestock. But more importantly, they teach us about forgiveness, love, compassion, and loyalty.
As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to love these guys, your best friend has a deep instinct to protect, nurture, and love your family. That’s why I believe they deserve the best!
I put this list in order of most importance and most impactful. To give your best friend the love they deserve, I would start at the top and work my way down from there.
1. ShawnCo Dog Harness
By far the number one thing your fur baby needs is a ShawnCo dog harness. The ShawnCo Dog Harness is a no-pull dog harness that can give your best friend more freedom and you more control while you’re out and about.
The pressure on their chest vs their neck allows them to still look around freely, (which is what they often want to do) without feeling the need to lunge in one direction. It also allows them to be more comfortable, avoid injuries and prevents them from getting into a tug-of-war match with you.
The ShawnCo harness came in five different sizes ranging from XS – XL and they offered 16 different color combinations! (I chose the American Flag for mine :)). Overall this product is extremely affordable coming in at $29.99 and most importantly, it works!
2. Only Natural Pet Pin Brush
After picking up your ShawnCo Dog Harness, the second thing you need to grab is the Only Natural Pet Pin Brush.
The Only Natural Pet Pin Brush is a one of a kind brush that allows you to groom even the thickest of dog coats easily, without the worry of causing any harm to your dog. I love this Only Natural Pet Pin Brush and use it daily as a quick and easy way of making sure my pup’s coat stays clean, untangled and healthy.
The Only Natural Pet Pin Brush comes with a solid bamboo handle and flexible stainless steel pins. Coming in at $12.99 the Only Natural Pet Pin Brush offers the perfect fit for your Dog’s next adventure.
3. Organic Dog Treats
Your dog deserves the best, and there’s nothing better for them than organic lamb treats.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve searched far and wide to find only the best for your best friend. After countless hours of research and trial and error, I can confidently say that Lamb Lung Fillets made by Dog Chits is the treat I give my pups.
Easily breakable into smaller pieces, the organic lamb treat has zero chemicals or fillers added and comes in a natural flavor that my dogs can’t get enough of. Since my dogs have sensitive stomachs I have to be careful about what I give them, (otherwise it’s a mess to clean up later), and since I started giving them Lamb Lung Fillets it’s been by far their favorite treat.
With a price point of $27.50, and being good for their teeth, health, and bellies, if you’re looking for a good clean organic dog treat for your Sheep Dog, then look no further than Dog Chits.
4. Organic Dog Food
We’ve all heard about Blue Buffalo, but have you heard about Blue Buffalo Wilderness? Blue Buffalo Wilderness is different from other organic dog food, (including regular Blue Buffalo).
Blue Buffalo Wilderness offers a more high-protein, and meat-rich diet with wholesome grains that include essential vitamins, and vital minerals. These vitamins and minerals allow your pup to develop healthy muscles, strong bones and teeth and gives them lots of energy for an active lifestyle.
With a price point of $67.98, Blue Buffalo Wilderness isn’t cheap. But then again, it’s made with real animals and not processed garbage. Since switching my pups to organic food I have seen a significant improvement in their lifestyle.
5. Yeti Stainless Steel Dog Bowl
The last thing your lil cuddle buddy needs is a good dog bowl.
If your dog is anything like mine, they like to get their face wet and gulp up the water, which is why a sturdy wide bowl is essential. Designed to be as dependable and adventurous as your best friend, the Yeti bowl holds up to eight cups (64 ounces) of water, and won’t budge no matter how enthusiastically they drink from it.
This dog bowl is inexpensive with a price point of $49 and comes with fifteen different colors to choose from, so you can get the bowl that best suits your personality.
Now Get Out There and Take a Walk with Your Best Friend
As humans we can learn a lot from a dog. They can teach us about loyalty, hard work, dedication, patience and above all forgiveness.
Raising a furry friend is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had the pleasure of doing, but it’s also a lot of work. If you only take away one thing from this list, let it be the ShawnCo Dog Harness. I’ll be using their harnesses for years to come because it is truly one of the best gifts I can give my best friend. Now grab your leash, and take your furry friend on the adventure they deserve.
Do not worry about what lies ahead, because your best friend will always have your back.
