What People Are Saying

“I purchased one of your Bob-A-Lots. Don't ever take it off the market. It is wonderful. Especially for those dogs that inhale their food and there is no other way to slow their eating. They get more bang for the buck if they have to work for their meal. Far more satisfying and better for their stomach.”

Featured Training Tip

Training Tip #9

We all need a hobby or an outlet to focus our energies on, and dogs are no exception. A daily session of exercise or play helps to keep your dog healthy, physically and mentally. This time that you spend with your dog can help prevent problem behaviors from forming, as well as build a closer bond with your pet.
