It is the time of year we take our dogs out swimming, on the boat, or near water. Most dogs love to swim and are very good at it, but it is important that you keep safety in mind, especially if your dog is not a natural swimmer. Some dogs struggle too much in the water and don’t have a natural, smooth stroke. This can lead to panic which results in even more thrashing and possible danger.
Luckily my female Boerboel is a natural swimmer, but it’s always safest to wear a specially made dog life jacket when your dog is near water or on the boat. Don’t let a pleasant summertime activity turn into a crisis!
We get excellent reviews on all of the Outward Hound gear, and the Outward Hound Ripstop Dog Life Jacket is no exception. We also carry the Paws Aboard and Pawz Pet Products dog life jackets, and highly recommend them. Dog life jackets can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy, and a portion from every sale will be donated to Rescue.
As the US embraces for 100+ degrees F temperature this week, it is important to remember to keep your dogs hydrated. Free access to fresh, clean water is imperative. The Hugs Hydro Fetch Dog Toy can also help as its water-absorbent core will gradually release liquid as your dog puts it in his mouth and squeezes or chomps down on it.
This is especially important for brachycephalic dogs as their shorter airways make it harder to cool down. Your dog will love this toy, and you will know he is getting hydrated when he plays with it.

Many people own small dogs or hate the look of a big clunky box on their dog’s collar. The Dogtra 200C is designed as an ultra compact remote trainer so your dog doesn’t have that large box screaming “look at me I’m wearing a shock collar!”. The Dogtra 200C is a compact remote trainer with a range of up to 1/2 mile. Everyone wants a lightweight, ubiquitous collar for their dog, and the Dogtra 200C and 202C fit this bill. With its small size, the collar can be worn on a dog as small as 10 pounds. It is also an excellent choice for larger dogs, but won’t be as noticeable on your dog as some of the older models of remote trainers.
The remote handheld transmitter can be used with one hand so that you can keep your other hand free. Precise stimulation levels from 0-100 will help you find the perfect level for your dog’s temperament. It is a low to medium-powered trainer, and most dogs will respect the intensity. The 1/2 mile range is ample for training purposes and hunting with your dog.
Dogtra 200C is a 1-dog system that is compact enough for dogs as small as 10 pounds, with a range of up to 1/2 mile.
Precise Stimulation Levels with Dogtra 200C
The Dogtra 200C has precise stimulation levels from 0 – 100 so that you can fine tune the intensity level to match the temperament of your dog. The gradual intensity levels of Nick and Continuous Stimulation can be quickly adjusted with just one hand. The dial is at the top of remote handheld so that you can adjust intensity if needed. When a dog is working one-on-one with you, they will most likely respond to a milder intensity level compared to a situation with distractions; i.e., a passing dog or cat, something to chase, children playing, etc.
When starting to train your dog, enforce your commands with the lowest stimulation to get his attention. Reinforce his commands on your own property before you introduce distractions.
The Dogtra 200C also features Non-stimulating Pager (vibration) to give you additional options when working with your dog.
The new Dogtra 200C (1-dog system) and Dogtra 202C (2-dog system) are available for purchase online at ShopForPuppy.com. As always, a portion from each sale will be donated to Rescue and helping dogs in need.
Now that vacation season is here, more people will be out on the roads and traveling with their pets. You may plan a day trip to the beach, to a family cook-out, the park or a camping trip. Now with the new Motorola pet containment systems, you have an easy-to-carry and simple to set-up wireless fence system that can be easily adjusted to cover a small area like a campsite or up to one acre in size. You can move back and forth to whatever size fits your requirements at the time.
“These wireless travel fences are a great way to enjoy taking pets with you when you go on trips,” says Jordan Riggs, President of Binatone North America. “People don’t want to leave their pets behind when they travel, but there is always the concern of how to make sure that they are safe and secure when they are in an area that is strange to their pets. Now with these new battery-powered units you can easily set up and establish a safe perimeter that will keep dogs from straying away no matter where you are.”
Motorola Wireless Pet Fence is an easy way to contain your dog within boundaries that you set yourself. It is portable and sets up easily.
The Motorola Wireless Fence 25 (WIRELESSFENCE25) consists of a transmitter that is powered by a battery or AC power, a battery-powered receiver mounted on the dog’s collar, and a set of boundary flags to help train the dog. The dog is trained to learn that the boundary flags designate the limit of the distance that they may travel, and they will learn the warning tone means they are getting close to the boundary.
The Motorola Travel Fence 50 (TRAVELFENCE50) has all of the same features as the WIRELESSFENCE25, and also includes a remote trainer. The remote trainer works like a small walkie-talkie in that it has the Push-to-Talk feature that is world renowned in the Motorola 2-way radios. The remote trainer handheld works in conjunction with the receiver mounted on the dog’s collar. It will help you quickly train your dog using the Push-to-Talk feature to send voice commands which your dog can hear. The remote trainer transmits at a range of up to 250 yards. The remote trainer also buttons that will cause the receiver to emit a warning tone, vibration or static correction.
Both units are available online at ShopForPuppy, where a portion of the revenue from each sale will be donated to Rescue. Thank you for shopping at our store!

“We love this new wireless fence from Motorola. It is portable, and it gives our dog more freedom without having to be on a leash or tethered. Our dog learned his boundaries very quickly. If he does get close to the boundary line, the transmitter beeps to warn us inside the house. We also take it camping so the dog can be free to enjoy the smaller surroundings of the campsite.” ~ Robert S., Avon, IN

The Kittywalk Lawn Version Pet Enclosure is a great way to let your indoor cat enjoy the sunshine and sights and sounds of the outdoors.
“My two cats love the Kittywalk Lawn Pet Enclosure. They are not declawed, but they have not tried to climb out or destroy the netting. I don’t let them in the Kittywalk unattended, but it is so nice to relax outdoors and watch them sniffing and enjoying the fresh air. They tried to push at the netting in the beginning, but they were not able to get out and the netting is still in great shape.”
“This is the best thing we bought for our cat to have the experience of being outside while we have peace of mind that he is safe.”
Folds for easy transport and storage
