Chew resistant leash for dogs who need a chew resistant leash

Oh, Nemo! My Great Pyrenees has yet to chew through this $15 rope leash.

I tell my housesitters to never leave Nemo tied up to anything. Ignoring the obvious risk he'll pull whatever you've tied him to apart, Nemo only takes a few seconds to chew his way free of most fabric and some braided metal cables. This leash holds up better than most.

The woven "mountain climbing rope" takes a bit more mastication and chewing on than a normal ribbon style one. This extends the time you can turn your back from approximated 90 seconds to perhaps 4 minutes. If I go for 5 minutes, I will usually find a Great Pyrenees wandering close to the nearest source of food.

The rope is moderately reflective. The handle comfortable. The clip heavy duty. This is a pretty good leash for big dogs.

Chew toys that last a giant dog multiple rainy days

I have a giant dog. Nemo is a Great Pyrenees. Finding toys that'll entertain him, without becoming shredded or hazardous, is challenging.

This rainy season we've been trapped inside quite a bit. Nemo gets a bit of nervous energy when this happens, and if I don't channel it into fun toys and distractions I'll be calling a carpenter.

Starmark's Wheeler is the longest lasting and most durable in their Everlasting Treat line. These toys allow a fitted, dense chewable to be inserted into a toy with the idea of making the treat accessible but still require work to chew. Nemo loves the Chicken and Bacon flavored treats, and one of either will last 2 days of chewing at it, or more. After several months of use The Wheeler itself has some small tears, but it has withstood multiple hours of chewing. Nemo frequently carries it around the house with him, keeping the Wheeler close at hand incase he wants to start working on it again.

The Amazon price on the treats is around 60% less than what I was paying at my local petshop.

Nemo's other favorite rainy day distraction these days, aside from barking, is his trusty old XXL KONG Extreme. I've only had to buy one. This sucker lasts, and lasts. My smaller dog, Pretzel, is the second generation of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to chew hers. These toys have not even got teeth marks on them, after years of abuse. The KONG is one of the easiest toys I've found to distract a dog for 30-45 minutes. Read the rest

Cheaper and safer pet brush

My dog groomer told me the brushes I've been using on my pals are not good for them, or their coats. She recommends I use this slicker brush.

A few weeks ago I reviewed the Furminator, a brush that removes great amounts of hair, and mats, from both my Cavalier King Charles and Main Coon cat. Today my groomer told me to throw it away! She showed me a number of small cuts on my pup that are a result of using that brush. Her suggestion is a simple slicker brush.

I like this brush and it works well on the smaller animals with lighter fur. It'll last a few months before the pins become bent totally out of shape. The quick release mechanism for hair is pretty helpful, and slightly bends the pins back into shape with each use. That said, I'm glad these are only $9 as they wear out in 3-6 months.

I love the ease of use and speed of the Fulminator. I can still use it, but not when the dog has really bad mats or stuff caught in her cottonball like fur, apparently it is too easy for her skin to get caught in it. Most of the time I'll be using a simple slicker.

Sorry, Pretzel!
