Smart Pups Resources

I have compiled my favorite dog-friendly training equipment, toys, treats, and other goodies in one place. Everything is categorized and you will be able to check my blog for reviews of these and more. By clicking on one of these links, you will be directed to Amazon's website to purchase the item. The cool part is that by using these links, Amazon will give me a small portion of the sale and you will get your new leash/harness/food bowl/toy in no time. There is no extra cost to you!

If you prefer to shop local, give me a call and I will direct you to a small business on the shore that carries the item you want!

Common Pet Toxins





Like all Lupine products, these are guaranteed even if your dog chews, so you can return them to the company for a brand new one!

Break Away Collars

Great for multi-pet houses or accident prone dogs


Want to give your dog the same treats I had during our lesson? It's all here!


Keep in mind that you should always supervise your dog with any new toy! Be sure you inspect your dog's toys regularily to ensure it is not dangrous (loosing stuffing, breaking, etc.)
