SitStay Blog Staff Pick: 2016 Top Gear

Our staff found the top picks for gear this year! Some of the tops are Easy-Walk Harnesses, Patches, Shrimpy beds and more!

Jill's Picks

Our dogs, particularly our Boston Terrier, Fenway, is a puller. That makes walks no fun. Right away when we put the Easy-Walk Harness on him, that changed! The leash attachment in the front rather than between the shoulder blades helps to discourage pulling. This also worked great for our enthusiastic pug friend Maggie. She immediately went from a mega-puller to a no-puller. 

Fenway and Cameron are looking super dapper--and smelling better too--in their waterproof collars from DogIDs. The key part is water-proof equals stink-proof! The collar doesn't pick up smells from our adventures the way a nylon collar does. The collars are also customizable with engraved information so in case they are lost, our cell phone numbers are printed right there.

I don't mean to overstate things, but a Quiet Spot tag silencer could change your life. You don't even realize how much noise the jangle of tags makes while your pups are walking around the house. Adding this little fabric pouch that holds the tags will cut all of that. No more tag clanging during the night!

Hannah's Pick

We gave Danté a high-performance vest with an “Ask To Pet Me” I’m friendly patch for when he comes into the office. He loves having a job to, like most border collies, and wearing that vest gives him a sense of purpose.

The Earth Rated poop bags are “turdally” amazing. Hands down. Facts are, if you own a dog they are going to use the bathroom and you are going to be the one that has to pick it up. Having the option to smell lavender on your walk instead of, you know, is an option I am going to jump on.

Having a leash you can quickly slip on and off during agility training is very helpful. That’s why we love our Mendota Martingale Leash. The bright color makes it easy to see and the width is a perfect fit for all hand types.

Stacy's Pick

I love the softness and comfort that the Catalina Plush Bed by Big Shrimpy provides. The fact that it comes in multiple sizes, you're sure to find one that is perfect for whatever kind of dog you have, small or big.

The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler has received rave reviews from our customers and is in my top "must haves" for warmer climates.

I know that I've already mentioned Big Shrimpy products, but the Original Bed by Big Shrimpy is worth mentioning. Not all dogs like the sides on dog beds, so the Original Bed provides a flat surface that provides a larger surface for the dog.
