Premier Gentle Leader Dog Training Collar

Premier Easy Walk Dog Harness

Easy-Walk Harness stops pulling instantly without dog resistance.

Designed to gently discourage your dog from pulling while walking on a leash. Harness is simple and easy to fit, and easy to use, too. Unlike traditional collars, the Gentle Leader Easy Walk Harness never causes coughing, gagging, or choking because the chest strap rests low across the breastbone, not on the delicate tracheal area. Traditional harnesses can actually encourage dogs to pull harder because of the opposition reflex. That's the reflex that makes sled dogs do what they do.

Thunder Cap / Calming Cap

The ThunderCap filters your dog's vision in order to reduce the visual stimulation experienced in stressful situations. Your dog's vision is not blocked. Your dog can still see through the cap, but the cap creates a shielding effect for the dog, protecting them from anxiety-inducing stimulation. This way, your dog is able to maneuver through its surroundings in a more relaxed state.

Be wary of generics / immitation products in the case of the Calming Cap most of them block out the vision too much. Read reviews of users on Amazon before purchasing something cheaper. The goal is only to FILTER the vision.

Thunder Shirt and other Calming Shirts for Dogs


Calming Coat is used best to provide relief from:


More dogs go missing on the 4th of July than any other day of the year because of fear caused by fireworks. The loud and unexpected sounds of fireworks cause stress and anxiety for a lot of dogs. Be prepared this season with a Calming Coat.

Travel Anxiety

Summer and Holiday seasons are prime travel times, don’t leave your dog behind. Wearing a Calming Coat can relieve stress and ensure a peaceful trip for you and your dog.


Thunderstorms are most likely to occur in the spring and summer months and can trigger storm phobias in dogs due to their loud noise. Having a Calming Coat handy can help your dog stay calm when these storms arise.

Veterinary Visits

Properly caring for your dog means taking them to the vet on a regular basis. These visits can cause anxiety in your dog and make it difficult for your pet to get the proper care. Wearing a Calming Coat helps in keeping your dog calm during these visits.


Always ask your pet's trusted veterinarian, first, if they carry these products because they can demonstrate proper use.  If your veterinarian does not supply behavior products, click on images for easy, online shopping.

Premier Clik Stik Training Tool 

Click your way to a well-behaved dog with the Clik Stik, the all-in-one clicker and retractable target stick.

Agility and obedience training often requires your dog to focus on a particular location or object. Touch/target sticks are a wonderful tool for teaching targeting, send-aways and go-outs, contacts and weave poles, heeling and more.

Targeting is also helpful as a way to get your misbehaving or fearful dog focus on something else (the target).


Dremmel Pet Nail Groomer - PediPaws is the version Seen on TV - but this is our recommendation

Revolutionary nail trimmer for any pet.  It quickly trims, rounds and smooths nails with none of the potential discomfort of traditional nail clippers. A precision emery filing wheel gently removes thin layers of nail.  The protective cap we feel is a chance to get a nail caught and it limits the size of pet you use it on.  We recommend you place a towel under your pet's foot to catch the grinding dust.  As with introducing any new object take baby steps and desensitize your pet to the noise and feel to prevent scaring your pet.
