    Re: durable dog toy.

    So, have you guys heard of West Paw Design products?

    Obviously no toy is indestructible but they have a lifetime guarantee against destruction and a 1% return rate world wide.

    If only the chuckits have that.

    My dog hasn't destroyed the everlast fun ball (or whatever it's called now) but she doesn't enjoy the way it feels either. And it doesn't fit in a chucker... So that was a bit of a fail except for tug.

    The destruction guarantee makes those products very tempting.

    We get about a year out of chuckit balls and Frisbee. she's eaten the Frisbee through to the rope just tugging on it, and she completely destroyed her star mark easy glider Frisbee too. A bit disappointing given I don't let her sit around just chewing on these.

    The thing that would make my life heaps easier would be to have raw food delivered. They do it in Melbourne already though, not sure where you are. We have one butcher that does delivery, but he only has chicken mince for dogs. And offal, but even that's expensive.

    I got really excited when I saw the Melbourne service, until I realised where they were. They have all sorts of interesting raw foods, pretty cheap.

    Other stuff... Stronger tags. Or probably just stronger tag rings. We just lost another one. I have seen collars with a name plate attached to the collar itself. Like a label, but metal or plastic. I think I could only find them overseas though and I didn't really like the designs and I don't think they had martingales. I would also like a weighted martingale collar, so the chain sits at the back of the neck instead of the throat. But there may be some practical issue with that that I haven't thought about.

    If you need a thrower to fit more/less than a standard thrower, you can get the ThroBizz thrower. It fits anything. :P

    A lot of clients ask for durable plush squeaky toys. I'd like it if there was more options for those

    And Beloz, I agree about fresh food delivery being a good idea

    somewhere easy to get green tripe
    If you live rural - are there not people who kill their own meat you could get tripe directly from them if they've planning to slay a beast. Would the town butcher know - or do they get their meat from the city abattoir (what a pity)?

    Not sure about the water work - I can only suggest putting a request notice up on the board at your local vet or dog food supply (fodder store). If you explain what you're doing and what dogs can get involved - you might get some newbies interested.
