Tail Runner Leash – Hands Free Leash
Do you want to maintain your run without your dog pulling you over? Would you like to tend to other activities, such as pushing a pram or tying your shoe, while restraining your dog? The Tail Runner Leash is the perfect Christmas gift for every dog lover. It’s lightweight, durable, and strong. The bungee design reduces shock or force if your dog pulls. The round bungee was chosen for greater strength. There is also a handy traffic handle to control your dog at road crossings or while walking in crowds. Its highly reflective stitching will also keep your pup safe.
Antlers for Dogs
Does your lil monster chew everything in sight? Do you dread the destruction you’ll come home to? If you haven’t heard about Antlers for Dogs, they’re definitely worth looking into. Despite being odourless to humans (which makes them a great inside treat), they are irresistible to dogs and will most likely keep your dog busy for weeks if not months.
In addition, they’re packed full of minerals like calcium and phosphorous, so they’re more beneficial than a synthetic chew toy. Our antlers are collected and cut from naturally shed antlers from our deer farm in the Hunter Valley – which makes them a great cruelty-conscious option.

Outward Hound Fun Feeder
The Outward Hound Fun Feeder allows your dog to eat naturally! The Slo-Bowl is a natural, healthy, and playful solution for dogs that gobble their kibble too quickly. Our nature-inspired designs promote natural eating habits by requiring dogs to forage for their feasts. Moreover, by prolonging feeding times, Slo-Bowls reduce the risks for bloat, regurgitation, and canine obesity. Dogs quickly learn to ‘chase’ their food through the maze of ridges and valleys, making dinnertime feel more like a hunt. The Slo-Bowl also ‘rewards’ their play with bits of food, furry friends become more and more engaged as the meal goes on. Veterinarians agree that slower feeding is safer feeding. When it’s time to dine, feed your dog with peace of mind.
The Outwards Hound Fun Feeder features:
– Top Rack Dishwasher Safe
– Promotes natural eating habits
– Made with high-quality, food safe materials; BP, PVC, & Phthalate FREE
