Did you wake up to family members, freshly baked breakfast casserole and presents under the tree this morning? Did you make sure to stuff your pet’s stocking as well? For the procrastinators who are still looking for that perfect present for your furry friend, here are some of our top-selling PetSafe products for 2013.
Does your dog love to pull you down the street as if he is running toward an endless doggie buffet of bacon? When you head out to take your dog on a walk around the neighborhood, your dog should not be walking you. If your shoulder feels like someone has taken a mallet to it after a stroll with your furry friend, it’s time for a change. The Easy Walk® Harness has a front chest leash attachment that will actually discourage your dog from pulling you around. This harness is great for petite pooches to extra-large canines in need of a little help when it comes to the daily walking routine. There are 7 different color combinations that make it easy for you to determine if you have the harness on correctly. This also makes a great gift for anyone wanting to get in a good walking routine for the new year!
Are you considering getting an in-ground fencing system for your dog? If you’re anything like me, you may have a dog that always seems to need a little extra attention when it comes to training. My Shiba Inu would win the Top Dog award in the stubborn category, and a product like the Stubborn Dog In-Ground Fence™ was made for dogs just like her. The lightweight transmitter is easy to install in a convenient location in your home or garage, and setting up your wire is easy once you have a good layout in mind. The collar takes a simple 9-volt battery, and even has a vibration function as an added feature. This product is great for dogs who are a bit more hard-headed than your average Fido, and even works with deaf or hard of hearing dogs because of its vibration.
If you happen to live in one of the few states that has beautiful winters with no snow, well, I envy you. Even without snow, winter evenings can be chilly for small pets. Our Heated Wellness Cushion™ for little dogs has been a best seller this year because of its ability to comfort (and warm) even the littlest of furry companions. The cushion is reversible to show either a chocolate or sand-colored option, and has a low-voltage heater placed inside for warmth. This is especially great for older pets who need a little therapeutic heat!
Your pets can play anywhere, even when you travel, with our Stay + Play Wireless Fence®. With up to ¾ of an acre to play, all you need to do is plug in the transmitter and make sure the collar is turned on and ready to go! This is a great product if you happen to go camping often, or at least try my kind of camping that involves electricity. If you visit family, just pack this convenient system with you when you go. Once your pets are trained to the tone and know the boundary, they can enjoy this anywhere you choose to take it. It even has a rechargeable collar that gives you an indicator light when it is time for it to be charged again. It’s easy to add multiple collars for different pets, too!
This is always a favorite in our office. Keeping a bag of treats with you is one thing, but having a liquid treat that is easy to open and dispense is a real treat to the pets in your lives. The Lickety Stik® for dogs comes in 6 different flavors, and we make the Feline Lickety Stik® in 6 flavors as well! These are great gifts to give any pet lover in your life, or to purchase for your own household pets. They are low in calories, and are especially great for traveling or walks. There’s a reason these have been a best-selling item this year! I’m sure my dogs are even salivating as I write about their favorite snacks.
We hope that you have enjoyed this list of our top items from 2013. From all of us at PetSafe, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2014 with your family and pets!
