Leap’s Product Review!

Posted on by roxanne

It’s finally my favorite time of year when I can play outside and not get cold. Which also means my people have to do a lot of yardwork to make it all look nice. These Best of Breed Garden Flags are the perfect addition to your yard this spring! I think this one kind of looks like me but my mom says it’s not me. They do come in over 130 breeds and many different colors and pictures though. So you can find one that most closely resembles your dog. I give these flags 4 paws up! *All reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them. A little Border Collie can only do so much.

Dog Rocks-What are they for?

Posted on by roxanne

Let’s let Leap answer! Leaps Wednesday Review: Thanks to my friend Gilligan for giving a guest review last week. This week I am here to talk about those silly rocks in my water. The human people here say they help the grass stay green when I pee on it. I don’t understand why they would want to do that, it’s just grass. I guess they like it that way… as long as I can still roll and dig in it I don’t care! I guess these rocks come from Australia and they naturally clean the water of the things that cause my pee to kill your grass. Especially for us female dogs who like to pee in a big puddle. There is no chemicals or anything involved which is good for everyone. Just put the rocks in the water bowl and watch it work! They say to get new ones every 2-3 months or as soon as your grass starts to show signs of dying again. Also, a shout out to this awesome mat for my food and water and the metal food bowls by Buddy’s Line. I give DogRocks a big 4 paws up! *all reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them but a little Border Collie can only do so much!

Gilligan and The Lickety Stick Treat

Posted on by roxanne

Leaps Wednesday Review: Wait, wait, I know, that’s not Leap! Gilligan here. Hold on finishing my treat.. My friend Leap asked me to fill in and give my review of.. Did someone say treat? Oh no, I guess I just thought it. Well, I am here to review this rolling ball of goodness the humans call a “Lickety Stick”. They say I only get like 1 calorie per 10 licks but I think they are crazy… it’s like candy! My mom used it to teach me to stay inside the door here at the store. This way I got lots of reward but not too many treats. The lady who makes me do stuff for food (Abby) says they also work well to teach heeling and other things that take a lot of rewarding. Plus they can just hold it and not fumble with getting out a treat. Then I get a reward super fast! I give these 4 paws up! *all reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. It has nothing to do with that Leap’s system and is solely based on how tasty the product is… TREAT TIME! Oh, I just had treat time? How about another one?


The Bakery Case at Decadent Dogs…for dogs only

Posted on by roxanne

Leaps Wednesday Review: Today I am sitting pretty and begging for these Preppy Puppy Treats. They are so good I even figured out how to open this case so I can get them myself (my moms a party pooper though and always catches me! Got to learn to be sneakier!) My mom says we are a special store because this bakery (Preppy Puppy) sends these treats special just for us! They are in Massachusetts (wherever that is) and they get sent to us a few times a month. I like tasting them when we get new ones. Made of all natural stuff you would find in your cabinet at home that are good for me and cute to boot. I personally like the PBandJ sandwiches and the Poodle Puffs. I think they are definitely a best seller here because I get tempted all day long when they open the case for other dogs. I give these cookies a big 4 paws up!! *all reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them! A little Border Collie can only do so much.

Leap loves going green! Green toys that is!

Posted on by roxanne

Leaps Wednesday Review: These fun “green” toys are also totally safe and healthy for me! Made out of rice husk rubber that is totally natural and no chemicals to hurt me. These are sure to be a fun toy for any dog. We can play tug with the soft rope and ball, play fetch and chew with the bones, and I can even do my favorite thing with Lucy the Parrot… SQUEAK! I give these Beco Toys 3 paws up (they lost one paw because my mom says they aren’t the toughest toy for really tough chewers) *all reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them! A little Border Collie can only do so much.

Leap’s Review!

Posted on by roxanne

Leaps Wednesday Review: I love being snuggly cozy warm. This cozy cave by Snoozer fits the bill! I can crawl right in and take a nap. It has really soft white fluffy stuff inside that I can snuggle into while feeling like I am covered up too. Perfect for me and my friends who like to sleep under blankets in the cold. My mom says you can even take off the whole outside to clean it in that magic machine that makes all my things smell fresh and new again. She says that’s a great thing, I personally like making my stuff smell like me and my adventures! I like this large size one but they come in all different sizes for all my friends. I give it 4 paws up! *All reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them! A little Border Collie can only do so much.


Leap’s Wednesday Review: Zuke’s Mini Naturals are BEST training treats!

Posted on by roxanne

Leaps Wednesday Review: Zuke’s treats are my favorite when I am training. I can eat a whole bunch of them and still keep my slender active figure. A great little treat to tell me I was a good girl and make me happy but not too much that I get distracted from my next task! They are soft and about pea sized so very easy to eat. My mom says they are healthy for me because they are wheat, corn, and soy free – I just think they taste yummy. I can get them in a bunch of flavors too like Rabbit, Pork, Salmon, Peanut Butter, and more! I give them 4 paws and a bunch of happy taste buds up! *All reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them! A little Border Collie can only do so much.

Leap reviews the GoDog toys!

Posted on by roxanne

Leaps Wednesday Review: Go Dog Go! Do your dogs like to “go go go” when it comes to destroying toys like I do? Well these GoDog! toys may be just the fit for you too then. They squeak and flop and fluff AND they are made extra tough. The human people who make them even are so confident in how well they made them… if I kill it within 30 days of purchase they will give me a NEW one! That’s pretty cool of those humans. From Dinosaurs to Chickens to Wild Animals they have toys for all personalities. I personally love the chickens floppy long legs like mine! I give them 4 paws up! *All reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them! A little Border Collie can only do so much.

Leap’s Expert Toy Review!

Posted on by roxanne

Leap’s Wednesday Review: Do you ever feel lonely and just need a friend? I know I do! These Huggle Hounds are great friends though. They are made of thick skin so even when I get mad at them and bite them they don’t rip. They are also nice and warm to cuddle up with. I even like to hang out in this basket with them! I give them 3 paws up! *All reviews are based on my own 4 paw rating system. I would give more if I had them! A little Border Collie can only do so much.

A tidy rollerball dispenses all-natural liquid goodness –dogs just lap it up! Now there’s a way to treat your dog with a highly enjoyable all-natural liquid treat. With Lickety Stik your dog gets all of the flavor and none of the bulk of other biscuits and treats that can fill ‘em up.

  • 3 Natural flavors with added vitamins-Bacon (YUM!), Chicken and Peanut ButterScreen Shot 2016-08-04 at 3.59.57 PM
  • Over 500 licks per bottle
  • Only 1 calorie in every 10 licks and 50 calories per bottle

Huggle Hounds Galore!

Posted on by roxanne

Huggle Hounds are a great stuffed animal for your dog. Fairly tough fabric, with a soft interior that encases a few squeakers for added enjoyment. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from wee little ones small enough for the 2 pounders all the way up to the jumbo sized for the large breeds.

We always suggest to have some hard toys, some soft toys, and a few in between to avoid chewed socks, blankets, slippers, and furniture. (As with any toy, play should be supervised).


We’ve got a Fitting Table!

Posted on by roxanne

Thanks to one of the bosses being crafty, we now have a fitting table available to be used in Holland. No more hovering over the dog while trying on harnesses and other great items.

Decadent Dogs carries the 4 smallest sizes of Buddy Belts and are happy to order larger sizes.  Traditional neck collars can cause unnecessary strain and discomfort for pets.

BeneBones Product Review

Posted on by roxanne

The staff here, at Decadent Dogs, has fallen in love with a fairly new chew toy! The Benebone was first introduced to us last fall, and we can’t get enough of it. Benebone is a USA based family business. They keep all of their manufacturing process here in the US, in support of small businesses. They have very simple ingredient lists, and are very supportive of animal welfare groups, including shelters and rescues.

Now let’s talk practicality; the benebone comes in a few shapes and sizes including wishbone shapes and rocking dental chews. They are available in three different flavors: Bacon, Peanut Butter, and Chicken and are simply Nylon bones with actual bacon, peanuts, or chicken thrown in for the flavor. Similar to regular nylabones, the Benebone can help clean your dogs teeth as it chews, which can save them from extra dental work later.

Staff Member, Esther S., absolutely loves having these bones around her house stating, “My dogs love these, almost as much as real bones, and they fight over them constantly. Yet between all three dogs, these bones have held up amazingly!”
(Her dogs include a 25lb border collie mix, 30lb pit-lab mix, and 50lb Doberman mix that is still growing).

These chews have quickly become one of our “go-to” toys for intense chewers, and have already saved many chair legs and flip flops!


Who needs Doggles?

Posted on by roxanne

Decadent Dogs staff is asked why Dogs would need Doggles often!  And, here is the answer!  Dogs that ride on motorcycles, boats or hang their heads out of car windows could use a pair to protect their eyes from sand, rocks, sun, and wind.  Especially pale eyed dogs, like Huskies, could use sun protection, even when NOT on a boat!  Dogs hiking in the mountains, summer or winter, could use the protection form sun and/or falling rocks, sand, snow. Dogs eyes can be damaged just like human eyes.  Originally designed by the Army for dogs in Iraq as sun and sun protection for their Bomb-Sniffing, K-9 Dogs.  And made available to the public once they were proven to be so protective!  Decadent Dogs recommends putting your dogs Doggles on the first time out in the bright sunlight-they quickly understand what a benefit they are!  And then they learn-Doggles on=Good Times!  And besides, do we have to mention they are just adorable in Doggles?  Picture is Annie, a Havanese, showing off her Doggles!

What’s the difference between a Tuffy Ultimate Toy and a Mega?

Posted on by roxanne

So, what’s the difference between a Tuffy Ultimate Toy and a Mega Toy? Both are Tuffy Toy Tuff, the toughest soft toy with a squeaker. The Mega Toy has 7 layers of fabric, versus 4 layers in the Ultimate. This gives the Mega one more point on the “Chomper” Scale, so Megas rate a 10 versus a 9 for the Ultimate. Probably 90% of dogs can’t kill an Ultimate Tuffy Toy but, for those last 10% of chewers, grab a Mega Toy!

Ivy Grace Leder

Posted on by roxanne

It is with heavy heart that I have to say that Ivy Grace, “Shopdog Extraordinaire” passed away on January 19,2015.  At 13 years old, her heart just gave up.  What a lovely, and well-loved dog she was.  And a wonderful caretaker of her family and friend to all the customers.  She will be missed.


Safety Ice Melt now available at Decadent Dogs

Posted on by roxanne

Protect your pets from salt with Safety Ice Melt! Contains NO rock salt! Pets should not ingest salt, and their paws certainly can’t handle salt, it causes them to dry and crack.

Always wipe your dog’s paws with a moist towel after walking outside on snowy days, says Louise Murray, D.V.M., vice president of the ASPCA Animal Hospital. Trim the hair between the dog’s toes to reduce mineral collection, or put doggie booties on all four paws as extra protection.

Don’t let your dog lick salt or even ice melt or drink from puddles or slush pools when its outside. Even very limited amounts of 100 percent sodium chloride can be lethal to dogs.
