Leap’s Product Review!
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?
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
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
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!
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.

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!
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.

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 Wednesday Review of Polartec Coats
Leaps Wednesday Review: Apache River Coats! Wow, these coats can keep me and my friends so warm and snuggly. Made of thick comfortable material they fit real snug so they don’t bug me when I am running and playing either. My momma says they even come in a special long version for those really long bodied dogs that have a hard time finding coats. They can also adjust so they can fit a big chest like some of my friends have. Since, every dog no matter their shape is special and should have a feel good coat! I give these coats 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’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.

Traditional neck collars can cause unnecessary strain and discomfort for pets. In many cases this strain results in damage to your pet’s trachea (windpipe) and/or spine. The Buddy Belt dips very low below the neck on the chest, and never cause trachea or neck damage. The closure is a traditional belt. We welcome customers to stop by and let us fit your dog with the very harness option!
BeneBones Product Review
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?
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?
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!
It’s coming….tricks and treats and things that go bump in the night!

Bully Stick Product Review
The beef ligament is the best thing I have found for Birdie to chew on. It is hard initially and softens as she chews on it. Unlike the typical dog treats which only last for a few minutes these last for days of constant chewing. Sent by Bill, A Decadent Dog customer!
