Guest Picks: Sandra Mannion

As a professional dog trainer, I need convenient products that simplify my training and management duties. I develop a dog-like loyalty to a product if it’s durable, saves time and helps make the dogs under my care content.  Here are few of my indispensible product picks.

Treatstik

$12.99–$15.99

This simple treat-dispensing toy is one of my enrichment favorites. While I have yet to meet an indestructible toy, this one comes close.

  • Easy and fast to fill with treats or kibble.
  • Made of dishwasher-safe, durable nylon material.
  • Slows down gulpers from eating too quickly.
  • Provides mental stimulation and prolongs mealtime fun.

dognation treats

$5.49–$6.99

These savory treats are perfect for training sessions. I have never seen them refused, even by picky pups with highly refined palates.

  • Healthy ingredients, in beef or chicken flavor.
  • Highly palatable, dogs adore these sausage-shaped soft treats.
  • Low odor, which is great if you’re sensitive or do lots of training.
  • Texture and shape perfect for training—a little goes a long way.

Premier Treat Pouch

$14–$16

I practically live in this essential piece of dog training equipment. Of all the styles available out there, this one is the most efficient for my work.

  • French hinge makes for easy open and close. No treat spilling.
  • Water-resistant lining allows you to use moist treats with less mess.
  • Easy on/off clip with adjustable belt for comfortable long wear.
  • Durable and washable nylon material withstands heavy use.
