    Location:
    Indianapolis, IN
    Dog's Name: Morgan
    Dog's Breed: Labmutt
    Collar Size: ~16 inches (generally "medium")
    Favourite Treat: He's a labmutt. If it's edible, it's win.
    Favourite Toy: Stuffies with squeakies are always a hit, but with one exception (below) he's big on toys in general.
    Treats they cannot have: I avoid treats made in China and rawhide chews. That's about it.
    Toys they won't use: Complex puzzle toys (ie: anything with sliders, caps, or doors to manipulate)
    Anything else!: While I'm not outright discouraging collars, I do own a small collar business so he's well equipped in that department.
    Although he's not fond of complex puzzle toys, he does enjoy simpler things like roll-around treat dispensers and egg babies. :)
    Finally, one of the things I've been looking at recently is reflective and/or lighted gear for night-time walks, since Morgan is basically invisible in the dark.

    Clothing Size
    Back length:
    ~25" from base-of-neck to base-of-tail
    leg length: ~23" tall at the shoulder
    chest size: ~26" around
    neck size: ~16"

    Your favourite colour(s): I always hate this question, because I just like COLOR! If forced to make choice, I'd probably say green... but I seriously just like bright colors. lol
    Foodstuff you do not like (for humans!): Not picky, and no allergies, either. The only thing I can think off the top of my head that I'm not fond off are crunchy pretzel snacks.



    ==========================
    *Secret Santa-ing for the other pets is COMPLETELY optional!!!*
    That said, I know many people like to know the whole animal household, so here ya go. ;)

    Cats: Whitacre & Ticheli (males)
    Favourite Treat: Salmon jerky/dehydrated dog treats
    Favourite Toy: Small stuffies (small enough to carry), "flirt pole" style chase toys. Also, Ticheli's brains will fall out (with joy) if he sees anything with feathers. It's an unhealthy addiction. LOL
    Treats/toys they cannot have: NO CATNIP, PLEASE!!! (Info on this below.)
    Anything else!: We have sugar gliders and catnip is toxic to them. A lot of cat toys are treated with catnip, even if the label doesn't mention it. For this reason, we generally stick to small dog toys, ferret toys, homemade toys, or creatively repurposed household items for the cats.


    Other Pets: As mentioned above, we also have a colony of four sugar gliders, plus I am a cornsnake hobbyist with twelve snakes. I'm fairly particular about what sorts of things they can/can't have, so I'm not asking they be shopped for, but, again, I know some people like to know the full zoo rundown. :D

(she has a lot and rarely plays with them)

    Dog's Name: Cali
    Dog's Breed: Rottweiler
    Collar Size: 18"
    Favourite Toy: Tugs (made by Katie), egg babies, nylabone (chocolate or bacon preferred), squeaky balls, and mind games.
    Toys they won't use: Anything made with latex. Also, please no plush toys because it will be destroyed. The only plush toys that somewhat hold up to her are Tuffy brand.
    Anything else!: Please do not send anything with small pieces, or any type of round object with a slick surface. She has really developed a love for tugging so maybe a tug lead that can be used when training? She will also be starting obedience soon and be in need of a nice leather collar/lead set. Cali doesn't really have a color since she mainly uses leather -- but all her hardware is brass.

    Clothing Size Cali is hot natured so the only thing she wears is a cooling coat of some sort. She has a 33" chest, generally wears a L or XL depending on the cut of the coat.

    Dog's Name: Brawt
    Dog's Breed: Dachshund
    Collar Size: 10"
    Favourite Toy: Nylabone (chocolate preferred), tugs, working puzzle toys, stuffed toys that squeak, but will destroy them unless they are small (ex: Dr. Noys). He also loves the eggs from the egg babies (yes, he is an odd dog).
    Toys they won't use: Anything made of extremely hard rubber or latex or tennis type balls. Also isn't fond of toys that are shaggy (longer type "hair").
    Anything else!: Brawt doesn't really have a color -- he looks fab in red, black and orange type colors.

    Clothing Size Brawt loves clothes -- his favorite part about winter is that he gets to wear PJ's. ;) Anything that properly fits is custom made due to his short legs and long back.
    Back length: 14"
    leg length: 6"
    chest size: 17"
    neck size: 10"

    Dog's Name: Charlie
    Dog's Breed: Dachshund
    Collar Size: 10"
    Favourite Toy: Nylabone
    Toys they won't use: Anything other than the two items listed above.
    Anything else!: Charlie is a simple dog -- as long as he has love, food, and blankets he is a happy boy. Charlie also doesn't have a color, but looks great in red, black, and green.

    Clothing Size: Charlie prefers to be naked. :eek:

    I combined some of the questions since the same rules apply to all three dogs. I apologize in advance for having so many restrictions due to B's seizures.

    Favourite Treat: Bully sticks, trachea, and lamb/buffalo ears. Also big fan of unusual protein sources (alligator, crawfish, buffalo, etc.).
    Treats they cannot have: Antlers, anything with grains, chicken, pork, or turkey. Please no rawhide, junky treats, or anything made in China.

    Your favourite colour(s): Black and teal
    foodstuff you do not like (for humans!): Coffee, mint, cherry, or chewy foods.

    ALSO! Please do not feel obligated to buy for all three dogs, they are all spoiled and always getting stuff bought for them.

    I think my list still applies, but if my person is stuck at all, as I was walking all four dogs today I was really wishing I had one of those multi-purpose (euro?) leashes (biothane or leather, 1/2" to 5/8" wide). I had one that I was borrowing for a long time but I would love one of my own. Just as an extra idea. We'll be super happy with anything!

    Oh, and thinking of toys, I forgot to add before that stuffingless ones are best. All of them work, as they just play with the carcass once stuffing is removed, but I find that those "Go Dog" dragons and dinosaurs (petsmart has their own version of them now too, but less pricey I think) hold up better for my guys or Skineez type toys. :)

    Sorry I'm a little late making this post

    Dog's Name: Cricket
    Dog's Breed: Unsure... think she is a Xoloitzcuintli mix
    Collar Size: I think 12.5" but I will measure my dogs tomorrow
    Favourite Treat: Anything that has peanut butter in it
    Favourite Toy:Loves those toys with the plastic bottles inside them... and anything interactive
    Treats they cannot have: Can't have anything with gluten/wheat, Corn/Grains, Can't have chicken, duck or any kind of fish. Can only have treats made in the USA or Canada... no China anything please
    Toys they won't use: If it's not interactive or noisy then she finds it boring... if it squeaks she loves it
    Anything else!: I'd love to get a pair of PJs for her this Christmas. Also planning to do disc with her hopefully, rally and lure coursing... she does need a coursing slip lead. Also with collars... she can pretty much wear any kind of collar but she does have a sensitive neck. High quality leather is fine and I'd really like to get her a fleece lined collar so she can have something soft on her neck.
    Also... I'd REALLY like a pink or lime green biothane harness for her. It would need to have both a front clip option and back clip option, but I really really want a biothane harness for her.

    Clothing Size(I'll have to look up the measurements I posted last year. Will get back to you on this one for all my dogs.
    Back length:
    leg length:
    chest size:
    neck size: I think 12.5"

    [​IMG]
    Dog's Name: Bamm
    Dog's Breed: Border Collie mix
    Collar Size: I think 15" ish??? I'll double check this tomorrow as well.
    Favourite Treat: ANYTHING.... he seriously loves anything...
    Favourite Toy: Squeaker toys, loves tennis balls and loves discs
    Treats they cannot have: Can't have anything that isn't USA or Canada made. Prefer grain free/gluten free for my dogs.
    Toys they won't use: He pretty much will play with anything.
    Anything else!: I like puzzle toys/interactive stuff for him. He needs more things that challenge that border collie brain of his and he LOVES figuring new stuff out.

    Clothing Size (I'll take measurements tomorrow)
    Back length:
    leg length:
    chest size:
    neck size:

    [​IMG]
    Dog's Name: Joey
    Dog's Breed: Ibizan Hound
    Collar Size:Can't remember. I'll measure him.
    Favourite Treat: He's a food hound. I don't even think he has a favorite treat because he likes everything.
    Favourite Toy: Tug toys and stuff that squeaks
    Treats they cannot have: Anything China made. Other than that I haven't noticed any food allergies with him to worry about. Again I do prefer grain free/gluten free
    Toys they won't use: He entertains himself so he pretty much will play with any toy. I do know that stuffed animals do not last long with him around. He will destuff them in the first few minutes.
    Anything else!: I really want to get him a new coursing lead with an alligator/lock jaw snap. We do coursing and planning to do more tracking with him. He is named Joey like the baby Kangaroo so anything kangaroo related is awesome.

    Clothing Size (will get measurements tomorrow. Dogs are asleep and don't want to bug them right now)
    Back length:
    leg length:
    chest size:
    neck size:



    Your favourite colour(s): pink/Royal purple
    foodstuff you do not like (for humans!): Meh I pretty much like most anything.

    Extra stuff: Please NO antlers or super hard bones for my dogs. After Cricket broke her tooth I want to avoid super hard bones. My dogs do love the Zukes Dental stuff (apple flavor especially) and Whimzies.

    We LOVE interactive stuff around here to keep dogs from getting bored. Treat dispensing stuff is awesome.

    Would like a long biothane lead... 15 ft or longer... and 1/2" wide
