It’s always great to give your dog a job after a walk that makes the transition from all your attention to being by themselves easier. Dog toys are easy to make for the week or night before and lots of variety as well.
Kong– Kongs are great for chewing, teething, boredom, digging, barking, crate training, weight management, and can even help with separation anxiety.
Zuke’s– The Zuke’s Mini Naturals are great because they contain no corn, wheat, or soy and their small size makes them great training treats.
Natural Balance– Natural Balance treats are another great option as they are grain-free and contain no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Treat Bags– I love this training pouch because you can easily carry your dog’s toys and treats. This one also has a built in dog poop bag holder.

Poop Bags– Dog waste bags are a must. These are a popular choice because they are easy to open/detach and their extra water resistant coating keeps everything dry and helps to minimize odors. Bonus: They’re also eco-friendly/100% oxo-biodegradable!

Bungee Dog Leash– This shock-absorbing dog leash helps prevent sudden jolts. It’s also reflective for night time walking.
Leather Dog Leash– A heavy duty leather dog leash like this one is great for large dogs like German Shepherds, etc.
