Please note it is always recommended that you supervise your puppy or dog whilst using any toys, treats or chews, and you do not leave your dog wearing any equipment unattended.

The safety of your dog is ultimately your responsibility. Please ensure you get the appropriate product for the age and size of your puppy or dog.

Any problems or concerns with a specific product purchased through a link on this website should be directed to the company the item was purchased from.

Affiliate links:

Many (but not all) of the links listed below are affiliate links.

This means that a special tracking code is used and that I may make a very small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links.

The price of the item is the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps me to maintain this website and support my very small business.

I may also use a link and provide a discount code for an item. In these cases, I may still earn an affiliate commission and the price may actually be LESS for you by using this link or tracking code.

Food and treats
