If you’ve recently found yourself the proud owner of a new dog or puppy, here are a few products SheSpeaks members have deemed must-haves for their doggos. 

FURminator deShedding Tool
This is way more than just a dog brush since it is designed to really get into the underfur and pull out all the loose hair. If your dog tends to shed, using this brush regularly will really cut down on furniture and floors covered in fur. SheSpeaks member Thor11 says, “Me and my boyfriend use this on our husky and it's incredible, makes life so much easier when she's shedding.”

Kong Dog Toy
Looking for a way to keep your dog entertained and happy for a few minutes? Fill one of these heavy duty Kong toys up with peanut butter and kibble, place it in the freezer for a couple of hours before serving, and watch as your dog goes to town. This works especially well for teething puppies and is so heavy duty that even extreme chewers will have a hard time ripping this toy apart. SheSpeaks member tjs68111 loves the Kong brand and says, “Kong brand toys are the best...they are one of our dogs favorite especially the ones that can add a treat to! She absolutely loves to spend hours getting it out!”

Greenies Pill Pockets Treats

It’s not always easy to get a dog to take their medicine, but with these Greenies treats, which have a hidden pocket for the pill, medicine time is a cinch. SheSpeaks member Zoibabee is very impressed with these treats and says, “I use these for my dog and it is a true game changer. She eats them right up and doesn't even worry about the medicine thats hidden inside. Before I had to battle her so much, even putting it in a hotdog no longer worked. These little Greenie pill pockets are wonderful!”

Furhaven Dog Bed
Giving a dog a soft and comfy safe space for a nap is a must, especially if you’d prefer they stay off your bed and sofa. Furhaven dog beds come in a variety of sizes and different styles like little cave beds, orthopedic loungers, and sofas. SheSpeaks member SheSpeaksTheTruth says her dogs is very pleased with the bed. She says, “My doggie climed right in snuggles up and slept all day! Perfect size!”

The furhaven dog bed is a must for my dog ! I usually constantly have to tell my dog to stay off my bed. However, once I brought home the furhaven dog bed my dog was instantly in love with it! Our bedtime routine is easy now because Oscar cannot wait to get into his bed.

i love animals! especially doggys, when i had my little baby i tested out all of these products in this article, and i would have to say if your dog sheds alot for one the FURminator deshedding tool is a plus it will take off all the loose fur it does make a difference. As for the kong dog toy its pretty cool to keep you lil furry friend occupied and it has a tasty treat in it for them also but i would be cautious with this product only because some dogs may be too excited so just keep an eye on them. Greenies pill pocket, i would like to start off by saying greenies is a great brand their products always get the job done. as for the pill pocket it works great but it also depends on your dog. Lastly the Furhaven dog bed i would say personally my dog loved it and the way he made it seem i wanted to get a human version for myself LOL in all seriousness all of these products are great

I volunteer at the county shelter and we give our dogs Kings filled with wet and dry food every Saturday before closing. They are frozen and will keep the dogs entertained and cool through the weekend. It helps with their anxiety too.

My must own pet product is a paw wash and balm for my dogs. We the wash on their Paws when it rains, between baths, and when we see them biting them (we think our pug has allergies to the grass). The balm comes in very handy for dry cracked Paws. Our Pug had torn his paw pad several times last summer, and it helped heal it quickly. It is also made to use in the winter. You apply it once a day before taking them outside. It helps keep the snow from sticking to their paws. We also use it on their noses when they get dry. It has lasted us nearly a year & we use it constantly.

I absolutely love these pet products. I use the dog bed and the greenies as well as the brush for fur. I have two labs and they shed a ton. It's been a lifesaver

Toy like balls, my dog is very energetic. Loves to play all day!! Chew toys, treats, and leashes that he can't chew in half! Nail clippers and shampoo that have great smells.

Kong Dog Toy!!! YES! We have an EXTREMELY hyper and excited rescued Pitt named Charlie. Charlie is destructive! He can eat just about anything!!! Charlie has not eaten the Kong Dog Toy! When company comes over we put a peanut butter treat in it and he focuses all his attention on that, rather than trying to sit in our guest laps! Yes he is an 80 on lap dog?..( well he tries to be!)

Must have for my fur babies are the deShedding tools. I also love the wire comb for my aussiedoodle. She doesn't like it at all, but then again, she is a DIVA.

The furminator is a 100% must have! It is not on the list, but highly recommend the Chom Chom to remove dog/cat fur off of furniture, blankets, clothes, etc.

The fur-minater is a 100% must have! Even if your pup doesn't seem very hairy you would bd surprised how much excess hair can come off a short haired dog with one of those! Kong toys are great too, indestructible!
