    Figured there were some awesome things out there that you all know about, have, and love that make your life easier with dogs. And I want to know what they are!

    For me, I LOVE my Flexi. And so does Frodo. It has made our walks so much more enjoyable for both of us!

    I'm ordering the DogAbout rear seat protector today, and I'm really hoping that it will make my life easier with regard to transportation.

    [​IMG]

    And I also ordered one of these yesterday (YAY employee discount, it'll be a whopping $7) which I am ALSO hoping will make transportation much easier with the Froman. It's not crash tested or anything, But I love that it clips right into your seat belt holder thing, and that you can easily adjust how much space your dog has to move around, which was our issue with the last one we tried. I figure it's better than letting him ride free like he does now.

    [​IMG]

    One that I am looking at that I may eventually buy is the Rince Ace sprayer, so if anyone has input on these, I'd love to hear it! Main issue is that I need it to be long enough to reach the bottom of the tub so that I can spray his underside.

    Your turn!! Show me some gadgets!

    The chuck it. A real gift from the heavens to those with energetic dogs who aren't good throwers! lol

    Zoom groom. I don't know what kind of witchcraft is going on here.. the dogs love it. it really picks up all the undercoat like a magnet in the bath and just brushing dry.. all without damaging the coat! awesome!

    The starmark clicker. need I say more? Witch craft.

    Fran - I had a Starmark clicker, and I loved it! Sadly, Missy chewed it to pieces, so now I have a cheap, boxy one from work. :(

    PWC - Where on earth did you find the car seat/harness thing? Because I think I need one. :) It looks way better than the one I currently have...

    I'll post my list of favorite gadgets once I'm on an actual computer (I'm on my phone right now), so I can post pictures.

    I have one of those, but it is from the Bamboo brand of dog products.
    http://www.bamboopet.com/products/detail/dog/1/3/810289

    It's not the same brand, but I find that it works really well! It does reach the bottom of my tub (when it's straight it sits on the bottom of the tub with a bit spare) and sprays the underside of my dogs great.

    One of the best things I have ever bought for my dogs!

    My list:

    My Kurgo zip line. BEST restraint I've found for Sunny, and I can add my parent's/ brother's dog when we travel with more than one.

    [​IMG]

    My Canine Camper Day Tripper crate. This is great for hauling around to agility class and trials. Sunny can kind of rock it around so I have a hard crate too, but the Day Tripper is very transportable, and light to carry.

    [​IMG]

    I also second (third?) the Chuck It.

    I'm sure I'll think of more, but that's all for now!

    The Tug-a-jug made our life so much easier when we both worked opposite shifts and Izzy was crated a lot.

    The Zoom Groom is great for Izzy's stupid-double-coat-of-doom but I haven't seen it since we moved this last time :(

    [​IMG]

    Just got one of these for Tango, will let you know how he likes it tonight. It will be his first time not traveling in a crate.

    Car zipline. It's slightly too long for my car, so I have to rig it a bit differently, but LOVE otherwise. I'm about to hit up Ellla's Lead for a second leash thing (I figure if anyone can make it, she can!) since it only came with one.

    Car seat hammock. I don't know how I EVER lived without this.

    Oh, those clip-on poo bag dispensers are the best. The car hammock has saved me some head-aches as well, such easy clean up after hiking/beach trips.

    This is my absolute favorite dog gadget. It's called a Pet Top.
    [​IMG]

    I also love the treat holder/dispenser I bought from Pet Edge. It gangs on the waistband to my jeans, and you squeeze it to dispense treats from the bottom. Of course, it didn't take Caleb long to figure out how it works, tho. LOL I was going to post a link to it, but can't find it on their website.

    That's awesomeness. <33 I SO need to get one of those. The bigger kind that Fran has kind of annoys me lol. I feel like it's always just dangling there, and just, yeah.... these look cute!

    I like the idea of a poop bag dispenser right there with me, but there are better made ones that do not fall off endlessly. I have that one and have lost it and been given it back by people multiple times.

    Oh, I forgot- poop bags. Honestly, I find the ones on rolls in the dispensers a pita to use. I much prefer the ones that come in those little plastic acorn shaped things. Just about every bag I own has some in them (even non-doggie ones), as well as both vehicles, and most coat pockets. I also have them hanging with the leahes in a treat pouch. They're more expensive, so I've started saving the empty acorns and refilling them with cheaper poop bags.

    I loooove my fleece leash/martingale combination like the ones from Rush to Tug, perfect for agility trials, easy to slip on and have a quick way to reward my dog:

    http://www.rushtotug.com/

    I love, love, love the starmark clickers too, I refuse to use any other kind and if I can't find mine I won't train, even though I have like 12 box clickers.

    I know this one isn't specifically dog related but because I do so much training by myself, I tend to video tape agility sessions a lot to watch my handling. This little tripod is AMAZING. I can stick my camcorder anywhere.

    I really dislike most of the pooper scoopers out there, they frustrate me. So I use a horse manure forks. Not only do they pick the entire pile up in one scoop, but it also unmats the grass underneath Also, works for a good joke when people comment on how big great dane poop is.

    Really? I've had that one and biked with it on my bike for over two years and never had it fall off.

    Anyways, I looooove the Wubba

    [​IMG]

    And the Chuck It of course, but I like the collapsable one for ease of transport best

    [​IMG]

    To be honest, my Herm Springer prong makes the list. For making my life easier and biking way less....interesting

    [​IMG]

    Oooh and this clicker. I love the finger loop thing and the sound it makes. Just a nice click

    [​IMG]

    My Bio Leather Euro lead too is amazing. I love that leash. Honestly though, I just love Euro Leads.

    And that's pretty much all I can think of off the top of my head
