My English Bulldog is fifty pounds of joyful toy destruction. There has never been a toy that could defeat her... until we discovered the Chew Ball. Three months later and it is still PERFECTLY intact!!!!!!! WOW! So I just wanted to say thanks for making such a super product!

Featured Training Tip

Training Tip #4

Does your dog sound off more than your neighbor’s over-zealous car alarm with seemingly less provocation? While you appreciate the notification of visitors, you don’t necessarily need to be alerted to every squirrel, bicycle, or delivery person that passes by your home. Barking is a natural behavior in dogs, but when excessive it can quickly become an annoyance to you and your neighbors. Your dog may fill his time by barking, but the experts at Starmark can help you teach him a more desirable and quieter behavior instead.
