    Default HelpFul Dog Hiints

    Just thought I would share..
    I use those small round exercise trampolines for our dog's Bed's.
    They are the only thing that has never ever fallen through.
    Infact, they are that well built they always look brand
    new. (Without the Slobber) lol
    Have had the heshan bags and they last about an hour and my
    dogs butts are sitting on them but on the ground. lol
    and also hold dust and crap that could make my dog itch.

    Just curious if anyone has any helpful hints that they do
    for their pets whether it be bedding food or anything really
    that works for them they may work for other's..

    I would never have thought of that...great idea

    My great idea is I use all my horse stuff, shampoo,detangler combs, purple spray, betadine spray, vet wrap (twice the price at the vets) and such for my dogs. Horse stuff is much cheaper

    Add to that all the herbal stuff, camomile, seaweed, slippery elm again cheaper for horses.

    I use four metal chests for my dog training platforms (2'x3')...They store a lot of our dog equipment/showstuff on our verandah and the dogs sit/lie on them during training. I train one dog, the other three sit on their boxes (lion training)

    I hate those hessian bags. Wash em twice and they are useless.

    I always tip my dry food into a massive airtight bucket. Easier to work with than a bigt 20 kilo bag and it keeps the food fresh.

    A foam single matress is usually cheaper than most dog matreses and can be cut to any size. My kids old fitted cot sheets fit his crate mattress really well. I found all this out when looking at crates and couldnt believe the prices for doggy mattresses.

    Would love to hear any other hints and tips aswell...

    I use a small lockable bin for my dogs Kibble Great..
    Newfsie - The excer trampolines are the best..We still have one
    from our Rotti we had 8 Years ago that had it for 7 and the only damage
    they can do is take the padding off..I do that first thing anyway as I don't
    want them to chew it and chuck it all over the yard..But this is the best idea
    ever seriously so so good. Doesn't hold fleas ect .... Fabulous

    And I also use horse stuff on our dogs..Works fast and is cheaper..

    Yes and YES to the horse stuff, especially shampoos etc. I can't imagine using those teeny little expensive dog ones on my lot!

    I re-cover our trampoline beds with shadecloth. It's cheap and can be cut off and chucked if too grubby or starting to fray. I wrap it around a couple of times and put some small cable ties through it to join. Lasts for ages even with heavy dogs sharing and piling up, and doesn't rub coats or elbows at all.

    I've never bought a new frame when the sling wears out, just tighten the screws and re-cover them.

    It can also be done in a colour that suits. Ours are usually tan... doesn't show too much dirt and matches house/outdoor furniture etc.
