    Default Where to buy equipment for large breed dogs

    Hey Phoenix,

    I know how it feels, my friend had this problem!

    The First thing to do would be to contact the breeder. That is, if the breeder lives near you.

    As I do not know where you live I cannot give you the whereabouts of local stores. However I've just done some googling on online stores and here are my results:

    Pet Supplies Australia | Online Pet Store For Dog Supplies
    Pet Supplies Online Pet Shop Pet Products Australia
    Critter Cottage - shop online pet supplies. Buy pet cat and dog supplies online Australia

    Hunt around and I'm sure they would have some things that would suit your dog. Unfortunately there are no niche stores for large dogs. ATTENTION - possible niche here!

    Good Luck,
    Charlie

    I understand how you feel. With greyhounds (who are pets) you can't find nice large comfy beds for them so it would be nice if someone had a store for bigger dogs. My greyhounds puppy's best friend at obeidence is a great dane she is a darling.

    Check out horseland or saddleworld - equestrian - you don't get a dog bigger than a horse... and they often have dog accessories.

    I made a dog bed for my puppy out of a queen sized bed doona and cover, the cheapest ones I could get from a $2 type shop (though they were $20 each, still cheaper than the cheapest dog bed), I fold the duna into quarters and it makes about the right sized bed for my dog - but you could get two and fold in half, or maybe old sofa cushions would work... I also had a blanket box from a removalist box supplies company - which I cut in halves - one half still functions as a bed and the other has been eaten - but that's why you get the box and don't shell out $$ for a puppy bed.

    I've considered going to the op shops that have bed linen etc and getting cheap blankets or old sleeping bags from them for dog bedding too. And for a really big dog - there are stores that sell spare bed foam mattresses - that you could cut to size and put in a doona cover or make a cover for them or just fold up to the size you want.

    I just received a supertuff collar and harness from rogueroyalty and am very impressed with the quality, and the service was top notch as well.

    I had a look at the Rogue products and have to say that they seem really good value to me. I know what the cost of some of this material is and for a collar like that at $30 is really good value.
