Our Recommendations

emoji_u1f44d-svgWe know you want the very best for your family dog! But it’s often difficult to weed through all the marketing hype, those pretty, heart-tugging pictures and tempting click-bait headlines to find the best  (meaning: the safest) products for our canine family members.

So we’re going to share our own personal recommendations for the people, websites and products we love – and use – when it comes to our own Great Danes.

Just click on the respective image to go to each website.

When it comes to the best natural dog care and training, The Whole Dog Journal is one of the very best and trust-worthy resources for all-things-dog.


The Royal Dog Chew (www.RoyalDogChew.pet), headquartered in Pennsylvania, is one of the treats I recommend and give to my own Great Danes. Why?

The Royal Dog Chew contains only all-natural ingredients: milk from yaks and cows (who graze in the high-altitudes of the Himalayans (above 15,000 feet) where climate change and harsh, inorganic materials or chemicals have not affected – or been used on – the natural alpine pastures); and traces of salt and lime juice.

And my dogs LOVE this high-protein/low fat chew! It satisfies their need to chew and it stands up to the punishment they give it as aggressive chewers. I love seeing them happy and I also appreciate the peace of mind in knowing I’ve given them an all-natural and easy-to-digest treat to enjoy.

Another important aspect (for me) is the Royal Dog Chew’s Mission of Sustainability and Social Responsibility in helping the impoverished farmers of the Himalayans continue a centuries-old tradition and livelihood. It’s wonderful to know that when I purchase a Royal Dog Chew, even in a small way, I’m helping these farmers keep their way of life to support their families. Instead of just lining the pockets of huge corporations who may, or may not, have the best interests of MY dogs in what they do.

medicrunchmedicationtreatsWhen it comes to giving your dog medication, it usually ends up being a struggle-to-the-death. We know that because we have Great Danes who HATE any kind of medicine! Medi-Crunch has made our lives so much easier with their healthy, all-natural product that’s veterinarian-approved with a 95% success rate! This yummy premium treat will easily fit most capsules and tablets inside the soft interior. This treat is so good for your dog, you can use it as a daily training reward or a “just because” treat with absolutely no guilt!


bark5_logo_transExperts say that 80% of dogs (maybe even more) have dental issues by the tender age of 3! But not all dogs (or their owners) enjoy the daily routine of teeth brushing. Using a dental-friendly and effective product can make good oral hygiene easier; but beware, not all dental products are created equal or safe! Bark5 is an alcohol-free (alcohol is toxic to dogs), all-natural product with only human-grade ingredients making it safe to use on dogs of all ages. It has also been rated a Low-Risk Canadian Health Vet Product (#NN.D9Q9) giving dog parents complete peace-of-mind.  A simple, quick and non-toxic way to fight doggy breath, inflamed bums and nasty tartar!
