High-tech on-demand climate-controlled dog houses exist

This is the Dog Parker. It's an on-demand, self-contained, climate-controlled, auto-sanitized urban dog house.

Going into the store and they have one of these sitting outside on the sidewalk? Pull out your smartphone, open the shelter with the app, and put your pooch inside while you shop. There's a "Puppy Cam" in it so you can spy on your dog while it's locked inside.

Dogs seem to like it (though the door isn't closed in any of the photos):

And it feels so good: Dog reunited with owner after 3 years

All the feels on this one. There's not much info on this video but it seems this dog was separated from its human companion for three long years. Once they were brought together, you'll see that the dog was shy to engage at first but once it got a whiff and a look, it was a joyful reunion!

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
