Do you like supporting Australian companies through your purchasing power?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then it is time you had a look at Black Dog Wear's range of purpose designed items.
I was first introduced to Black Dog Wear, soon after Whippet Boy came into my life and I payed a visit to Count Dogulas grooming salon and pet store in Moonee Ponds a wonderful establishment, run by proprietors anxious only to stock the very best and most practical of dog gear, including specialist training items.
I was seeking a few basics for my new puppy. I wanted to introduce him to clicker training and it was Black Dog Wear products, that could furnish my every need, from soft, durable puppy collars, to a great treat tote and on leash holder for doggy bags.
Later, when Whippet Boy became a rebellious teen, He was fitted with one of Black Dog Wear's highly effective head halters, to give me greater, but still gentle, control over his impolite antics.
For whippets and other sighthounds, martingale collars are ideal to avoid them slipping more conventional collars, due to their particularly long, tapering necks. If you have ever tried to purchase a martingale collar at a conventional pet shop, you are generally met with "a what"?
Yet martingale collars are great for many dog breeds. Like a choke collar they can tighten, should your dog need a little extra correction for pulling, yet, unlike a conventional choke chain, they will not quickly tighten and potentially harm. or even injure your dog's neck.
Black Dog Wear makes fabulous martingale collars. However it has been necessary to order my dog's martingale collar online, as it seems local pet stores, don't stock them and seem to give priority to selling items of often inferior quality, designed and manufactured off shore. Whether this is as due to ignorance about specialist collar options and their training merits, profit margins, or sheer ignorance of this great Australian company I am unsure.
However purchasing Black Dog Wear products online has proved easy and delivery is invariably prompt.
I like Black Dog Wear Products so much I can vouch for the merits of many items, through personal use with my own dog and other animals under my care as a pet sitter and pet stay host. Keep in mind I am just one of their many satisfied customers and not receiving any form of kick back to sing their praises. Nor is this a paid "infomercial", but a genuine testimony to their wonderful products and online order service.
Items I regularly use with Whippet Boy include his martingale collar, regular wide collar, head halter, a small doggie bag pouch that attaches to his leash, a brace lead I use when he is accompanied by one of our guest dogs on walks, his seat belt and travel harness, a spare seat belt for guest dogs and a hands free dog leash and belt.
Items I have purchased that are for humans, includes my treat tote and more recently, a doggie travel bag, for when we go away together. It has pouches for wet or muddy towels, an insulated section to keep our food cool and fabulous pockets to hold dog stuff like shampoos and a drink bottle. There is also room for his dog coats, a cushioned mat and dry food, along with sundry collars and a toy or two.
If you are looking for clicker and whistle training paraphanalia and manuals Black Dog Wear stocks these too.
I urge you to go online and peruse their catalogue of products.
I cannot recommend Black Dog Wear products highly enough!
