Dog Days of Summer

The weather’s finally starting to warm up and hot summer days are just around the corner. Help your pet stay safe with our 13 Quart Galvanized Ever Full Bowl.

This bowl hooks up to your standard water hose and is equipped with an automatic float to keep the bowl full but not too full. Fresh cool water whenever it’s needed by your best friend on four legs! It’s galvanized metal so it will stand up to many, many gallons of water and your dog won’t be able to chew this one up! However, if this bowl does get chewed up, you may also want to consider buying a large animal trap and a wildlife camera because it’s possible you have a sasquatch problem. So think about your pets and keep them safe from the dangers of summer: the sun and sasquatch attacks.

Rope Dog Toy


Odd sections of rope make wonderful dog toys and can be as simple or as complex as you want to make them.

The simplest version is to take about a foot of rope and then tie a knot in the middle. You should really secure the knot in the rope by having two people hold a pair of pliers and use them to pull on each end of the rope and get that know as tight as can be. A second knot on top of the first makes for a sturdier toy and gives your dog a good place to grip it.

A knot on each end of the lench of rope makes a fun tug toy and you can make these out of different lengths.

You can also take a longer length of rope, about 2 feet and tie the ends together to make a loop. This is fun for dogs who like to play tug-a-war and especially works great if you have a couple dogs that like to play tug-a-war!
