Once Thanksgiving is past and Christmas is upon us I start thinking about what dog toys I should get for my 3 dogs. The search basically starts on the internet by typing A-M-A-Z-O-N-.-C-O-M into my browser. Any time I think about purchasing anything my first thought is to visit Amazon.com(and usually ends with Amazon too).
How To Find Popular Dog Toys
How do I find the most popular dog toys on Amazon? It’s simple. Here’s my step by step process:
- Type Amazon.com into your web browser of choice. We prefer either Firefox or Google Chrome, but any browser will do.
- In the left navigation bar hover over “Home, Garden, & Tools”. In the sub-navigation scroll down to Pet Supplies and click on the Hyperlink
- In the horizontal navigation just below the search box click on the “Dog” hyperlink. This will take you directly to the Most Popular Dog Products page.
- Now just manually filter out the toys from the regular, boring, old products. Here’s the link that will take you directly to Amazon’s Most Popular Dog Products Page.
Just in case you don’t feel like going through my wonderful 4 step process here are the Top 10 Dog Toys on Amazon.com.
Top 10 Dog Toys
We like going Letterman Top 10 list style and go in descending order (countdown) from 10 to Number 1. Here’s our top dog toy list:
#10 Dog Toy – Mr. Bill Dog Toy – Okay, okay a bit of a weak start to our top 10 dog toys list, but if you’re a Gen Xer like me then you might recall the days of Mr. Bill. I envision this little guy getting shredded by the likes of Apache (my Golden Retriever) Linus (my Aussie Mix) and Stetson (my Black Lab). Anyhow we ordered one and we’ll let you know how he performs under stress (of 3 big dogs). The 20th most popular dog product on Amazon the price is right at $6 you’re receiving a 62% discount from Amazon!
#9 Dog Toy – Kyjen Plush Puppies Dog Squeaker Mat Toy – Kyjen seems like they’ve made some pretty popular dog toys coming into this holiday season starting off with this squeaker mat toy. It might drive me nuts when the doggies get a hold of this one, but we’re going to order one from Amazon anyways and let you know what we think. This one snuck in ahead of Mr. Bill by just a hair as the 19th most popular dog product and #9 dog toy!
#8 Dog Toy – Nylabone Dura Chew Wishbone Chew Toy – We’ve had one of these bad boys in the past which was chewed up, but not destroyed by Puppy In Training #2, Derby (yellow Labrador Retriever). It got pretty jagged and every time Derby dropped it on my bare foot it left a scratch mark. Rated for powerful chewers we eventually had to trash our Dura Chew Wishbone, but today we’re going to purchase another and let you know what Linus (aussie mix), Stetson (black Lab), and Apache (golden retriever) think of the Dura Chew. This one is the 16th most popular dog product.
#7 Dog Toy – Ethical Pet Skinneeez Exotic Series Dog Toy – I was wondering what the fuss was about these line of toys which come in the beaver, chicken, or flamingo styles. Here’s what Amazon had to say: “Our realistic Skinneeez toys will bring out a dog’s natural hunting instinct while dogs chase and flip-flop these toys all over the place. All Skinneeez are stuffing free and last longer than regular plush dog toys because there is no stuffing for dogs to rip out!” Isn’t that half the fun for your dog? I guess it’s not so fun when your dog…uhhmm…Stetson…tears up and eats the stuffing. We ordered one and we’ll let you know if we like it better or worse then your regular plush stuffed toy. Skinneeez is the 14th most popular dog product.
#6 Dog Toy – Kyjen Puzzle Plush Egg Babies Dog Toy, 5 Eggs – The second Kyjen toy to hit our list. This one comes from Kyjen’s popular puzzle line of toys. In fact we’ve loved these dog toys for years. However, this will be our first Egg Babies Dog Toy. We’ve noticed that our pups love to extract squeakers from regular plush toys. These toys are great because our pups can still extract squeakers (the eggs) without destroying the toy. This guy is the 13th most popular dog product.
#5 Dog Toy – KONG Extreme Dog Toy – We’ve had a few destructive dogs come through the house, but I think Apache (my Golden Retriever pup) may be able to take down the red Kong plus he such a big boy I think we need a bigger more extreme Kong. Enter the KONG Extreme Dog Toy. This is on the top of Apache’s wishlist so I ordered one from Amazon and I’ll let you know if it truly is EXTREME! At number 11 amongst all dog products.
#4 Dog Toy – Kyjen Plush Puppies Squeaker Mat Long Body Dog Toy – We’ve been wanting to try one of these large Kyjen Squeaker dog toys. Last year we bought the Kyjen Invincibles Snake Dog Toy and we’ve heard that these types of dog toys are supposed to be better for destructive dogs. We plan on getting a couple and putting them to the test. The #9 Dog product on Amazon!
#3 Dog Toy – Smarter Toys IQ Treat Ball Dog Toy – we had the small version of this toy for our cat and she absolutely loved it. I also recall Linus playing with it as well when he was just a pup. However, we want to try the larger 5″ version with Stetson and hopefully can put a short review up for you guys in the near future. Stay tuned…for a review of the #7 most popular dog product on Amazon.
#2 Dog Toy – Nylabone Durable Dental Dinosaur Chew Toy – we haven’t tried the dental dinosaur, but in the past we have enjoyed many other Nylabone dog products. Nylabone rates the durability of their toys and this one is recommended for powerful chewers. I think I might get one and test it with my boys who are definitely powerful chewers! This is the #3 most popular dog product on Amazon!
#1 Dog Toy – Drum Roll Please……… Kyjen Hide-A-Squirrel – one of our favorite toys. It can be a bit puzzling for dogs at first, but your dog will enjoy extracting these squeaky squirrels form their stumpy home. And the #1 most popular dog toy on Amazon is the #2 most popular dog product
After all that what actually is the most popular dog product on Amazon? It’s a Children’s Gate Play Yard!?
And that’s it! With Christmas right around the corner make sure you check out some or all of these great dog toys. As I’ve mentioned some I’ve already tried and tested while others I’m considering bringing into the household. If your dogs have already had the pleasure of playing with any of these dog toys then let us know what your pup thought in the comments section below.

Every year we go to the OC Pet Expo we come home with a bag full of dog products for Stetson, Linus, and this year Dublin to try out. After last years Orange County Pet Expo besides getting good deals on little stuffed doggy toys we also came away with two doggy toys that we had been eager to try. The first was the Amazing Treat Machine Interactive Dog Toy which we never got around to testing. However, we plan on giving Stetson a shot at reviewing the Amazing Treat Machine and add it to his list of dog product reviews. The other big product we bought from last years Pet Expo was Vetericyn wound and infection treatment spray. We were hoping this spray would help with Stetson’s dog skin allergies. Again we did not get a doggy product review posted to the web. However, we plan on putting together a full review of Vetericyn in the coming weeks.

Upcoming Dog Product Reviews from OC Pet Expo 2010
The Amazing Treat Machine Interactive Dog Toy – Fun interactive cardboard pet toy.
Vetericyn Wound & Infection Treatment - One step wound and infection treatment based on microcyn technology that works naturally with your animals immune system.
Once again we got a few plush toys that the boys will most likely shred to bits in a few minutes. We were hoping to find some awesome new dog products at this years Orange County Pet Expo and while we did come across several items we were interested in purchasing we only came home with one NEW dog product we plan on reviewing on the website.
So what is the one product we plan on reviewing? Lets start off with an awesome idea we had years ago:
Way back in 2005 when I took my Aussie mix Linus on a camping trip we wondered through the near pitch black forest at night me with my trusty head lamp and Linus and his black fur blended right in with the darkness. At the time I thought wouldn’t it be cool if Linus had a fancy headlamp just like the one I was wearing, but a canine version. After much (or maybe just a little) inner debate I assumed most dogs would be annoyed wearing a headlamp on their head just like most dogs hate wearing silly antlers or santa hats during the holidays. So I dropped the entire idea.
Fast forward to the 2011 OC Pet Expo. Almost directly across from our Guide Dogs of America booth was a small booth with a Golden Retriever wearing a nice little LED light around his neck. The dog product was quite simply called the PupLight Dog Safety Light! Very cool and because it was around his neck it didn’t bother him much…it was only like wearing an extra collar. While we still think our canine headlamp idea is still pretty cool the PupLight is much more practical.

PupLight Dog Safety Light – PupLight makes walking a dog at night enjoyable by illuminating the path ahead.
So stay tuned for our upcoming PupLight Dog Safety Light Review!
One final note on dog products at the Pet Expo Orange County: we were also looking to grab some antlers and saw a number of exhibitors selling both venison and deer antlers for dogs, but ended up coming away with neither. Some of our fellow guide dog puppy raisers purchased some giant elk antlers for dogs that were about a foot long and two inches in diameter. We also saw some much smaller antlers that were only about 4 inches in length and probably less than a half inch in diameter. And finally we also saw a few that were sheered in half (we heard do not buy the antlers that are sheered in half as they don’t last nearly as long) We weren’t too sure which would work best for Stetson’s powerful jaws so we decided a little more online research would be best.
By the way, after shopping around at the OC Pet Expo we thought we might be able to find better deals online. However, the best deals were indeed at the Pet Expo along with the fact that you could haggle with the exhibitors, get bulk discounts, and also when the exhibitors saw Dublin in his Guide Dogs of America jacket they automatically gave us a better deal. So next year we’re going to make sure we bring a fat wad of cash to spend on our three pups.
Did you get a chance to visit this years Orange County Pet Expo? If so, did you find any cool dog products or watch any of the shows?

We’re feeling festive after celebrating Thanksgiving so we decided it would be a great time to run a Puppy In Training Facebook Holiday Contest!
Puppy In Training Facebook Holiday Contest
WOW!!! Some of our Facebook Fans are going to get some AWESOME Doggy Toys! Here’s what we’re giving aways:
- FURminator Gift Package
- AIKOU Dog Toy
- Holiday Dog Kong Wubba
- $25 Amazon.com Gift Card
These prizes are going out to not any old Facebook Fans, but our Active Facebook Fans. Right now we don’t have a ton of fans (as of this writing we have 229 Fans) and even fewer active fans (those who have left comments over the past month).
We Want To Make A Donation To GDA
Our goal is to reach 1,000 Facebook Fans by December 25th 2010 and we can’t do that without your help. We plan on making a donation to Guide Dogs of America based on the number of fans we have on our Facebook Page. For every 100 fans we will make a $10 donation. If we can reach 1000 fans then we’ll make an additional $50 donation. That means if on Christmas Day we have 1000 Facebook fans then we will make a $150 donation to GDA. We don’t need to stop there…if for some crazy reason we get over 2000 fans I’ll do the same thing ($10 for every 100 and an additional $50 at 2K). If for some insane reason we clear 10,000 fans I think I’ll have to cap my donation. This is money out of my own pocket so hopefully it doesn’t get too out of hand.
That’s what we plan on doing…the more fans you can help us get the more we plan on donating to GDA.
How Do I Win The Doggy Prizes?
Not only do we plan on making a donation to GDA based on our fan support, but we want to give our Active Fans a chance to win some great doggy prizes.

We’d like to see you spread the word about this contest and the Puppy In Training Fanpage. It will be a lot of work, but we plan on using a point system.
Point System Rules – These actions must be taken on status updates between Dec 1st and Dec 25th 2010. You can add multiple comments per wall post, but we will only count one per wall post.
10 points – “like” a Puppy In Training wall post

30 points – add a Puppy In Training Fanpage link or repost a wall post on your page or profile
30 points – add a link back to the Puppy In Training Facebook Fanpage from your blog or website (one per blog post entry)
I can track anything that gets posted to our Facebook Fanpage Wall (“likes” and comments), but you’ll have to notify me anytime you perform an action outside the wall (reposts on your profile and blog posts).
Try to make your comments meaningful and add to the conversation of the wall post. One final note: I will only accept comments that occur within 2 days of the original wall post. Basically we’d like you to be active, but don’t abuse the system (we will not take kindly to it).
1 Randomly Drawn Active Facebook Fan – If you don’t have the time or energy to actively visit Facebook then just leave us one comment on a post dated between Dec 1st and Dec 25th 2010 and we’ll enter you in a drawing to receive the $25 Amazon.com Gift Card.
Unfortunately, we cannot ship any of the prizes outside the continental United States. If you win one of the non-gift card prizes we’ll email people outside the Continental US an Amazon.com gift card instead (1st – $25, 2nd – $15, 3rd – $10).
We reserve the right to change the rules at anytime. We do our best to think out these rules, but in the unfortunate case that we find an unfair loophole we may have to make some adjustments.
I hope this all makes sense and if not please leave me a comment in the comment section below or on the Facebook Fanpage. Thanks and good luck to everyone!

A great dog product I’ve purchased is the Citronella Anti-Bark Spray Collar in particular the Premier Gentle Spray Anti-Bark Dog Collar. I’ve raised several dogs and have gone through many of the common behavioral issues associated with dog ownership. Today, I received a call from a friend inquiring about what to do about her barking dog. There are several ways (with varying success) to work with barking problems. Some require you to be in the presence of your dog while others do not.
Why Do Dogs Bark?
There are many reasons why a dog may be barking. Here’s a list of some of the major causes of problem barkers:
- Improper Confinement
- Locked up in a room or in a dog crate.
- Restricted tethering outdoors.
- Even an enclosed yard with improper shelter from the elements.
- Lack of Exercise – pent up energy can be released through barking.
- Environmental Sounds
- Barking of other dogs.
- Sound of passing cars, strange voices, thunder, and mechanical noises
- Sounds may cause a dog to bark at different times of the day. A sound that does not cause a dog to bark during the day may cause him to bark at night.
- Separation Anxiety
- Temperament of the dog
- Over-aggressive dogs may bark at the smallest provocation.
- A territorial dog may bark at any stranger entering your property.
My friend’s dog seems to be barking at environmental sounds when she hears people from her yard. This is occurring when the dog is alone at home while my friend is away at work.
At this time she’s received several complaints from the neighbors and would like to nip this problem in the bud.
Solutions For The Barking Dog
I’ve heard of several solutions to keep dogs from barking and they all seem to be effective in one way or another. Here’s a list of solutions I’ve heard, witnessed, or applied to barking dogs. Be sure to use these reprimands when your dog is barking and not before or after he is finished. This way he will associate the unwanted behavior with the reprimand. Remember, when your dog stops barking give him lots of praise so he knows when he’s doing the right thing.
When you’re home or in the presence of your dog:
- Water Spray Bottle or Citronella Spray – Spray your dog with a water bottle or a Citronella Spray.
- I used both of these methods when my dog would bark in his crate during crate training. He eventually figured it out and the spray would stop him from barking for a short time giving me a chance to praise him.
- Verbal Reprimand – A simple “No!” will often work.
- Yelling at your dog may cause him to bark more, so try to stay calm.
- Leash Correction – I go over training collars and leash corrections in the article: Training My Guide Dog.
- Can of Pennies – Shake a can of pennies when your dog is barking.
- My Uncle does this with his three dogs and has moderate success.
- It sometimes stops the dogs from barking, but they will continue to bark minutes later.
When you’re away from your dog:
- Citronella Anti-Bark Dog Collar – A collar the dog wears around his neck and sprays citronella when he barks.
- You can also get this collar with a remote control to aid in training.
- No-Bark Shock Collar – Bark-control collar sends harmless static shock to the dog whenever he barks.
- I’m not a huge advocate of this device. My parents used this on our family dog when we were kids. Although it is said to be humane I do remember my dog yelping when he was shocked. I don’t think we had the option for a citronella collar at the time. However, the device did work and our dog did not bark with the collar on.
- Sonic Bark Collar Attachment – A collar the dog wears around his neck and creates a sound when he barks.
- I have not used this device, but have heard through reviews and friends that it is not the most effective barking deterrent. I’ve also heard from some dog owners that the device worked initially, but over time the dogs got used to the device.
- This device did not receive good reviews on Amazon.com. If you click the link please do thorough research before purchasing.
- Also, in one of the reviews I read that the sound is audible to people. Some of the other bark collars I’ve read about produce a sound not audible to people
- Vocal Cordectomy – A surgical procedure that involves the removal of all or part of a dogs vocal chords.
- This should be used only as a final resort and particularly when the dogs life is in question.
- My Uncle has done this with a couple of his Great Pyreneese’s and even after the procedure the dogs find away to make a barking like noise. The sound his dogs make is much quieter, but can still be bothersome to the neighbors.
The Citronella Anti-Bark Spray Collar
This product was recommended to me by my dog trainer Sue Myles. I highly recommend Sue’s training classes and if you’re interested in training your dog then please visit her website at SueMyles.com. Also, the last time I was at Sue’s class she recommended the newer version of this product called the Spray Commander. The Spray Commander is essentially the same collar, but you also receive a small remote control that can activate the spray when your dog is doing something wrong.
Helps stop excessive barking the safe and humane way! A dog may be man’s best friend, but continuous excessive barking can certainly test that friendship. In fact, many towns have disturbance laws against loud, prolonged noise, such as that created by barking dogs. Many owners have tried surgical remedies. Not only is this expensive, but it completely and permanently eliminates a dog’s natural ability to bark. Spray Control Anti-Bark Collars are an inexpensive, humane, but effective solution to excessive barking. How it works: The Spray Control Anti-Bark Collar is simple to operate. Place the battery in the receiver collar and attach it around your dog’s neck. When your dog barks, a burst of all-natural citronella spray is emitted, which dogs find bothersome to their highly developed olfactory sense of smell. While not harmful, it is a sufficient deterrent to excessive barking. Exclusive features: Uses a burst of all-natural citronella spray to deter barking For dogs of all sizes and temperaments Safe, harmless, and effective Lifetime warranty.
I’ve been using this device for the past 3 years with great success. Setting up the Premier Gentle Spray Anti-Bark Dog Collar is very simple and my dog Linus responded immediately. Linus is a very sensitive Australian Shepherd Mix and was actually quite frightened the first time he set off the collar. Needless to say I don’t get any complaints from my neighbors anymore. One drawback that I’ve noticed with Linus is that the smell of citronella really freaks him out now. While at training class he got a whiff of one of the other dogs citronella collars and he was petrified and had difficulty continuing with his group training.
However, I know the collar does not work with all dogs because my mother’s small terrier mix responds to the collar occasionally. I have seen him bark over and over again and just let his collar spray him in the face. It’s a very funny thing to watch. He’s a very high energy dog and sometimes just gets too excited to control himself.
Overall, the majority of reviews on the Citronella Anti-Bark Dog Collar are positive. This product is not for every dog and I know from first hand experience that some dogs just simply don’t respond to the citronella.
If you are interested in purchasing the Premier Gentle Spray Anti-Bark Dog Collar or the Spray Commander then please do your homework and find out if this is the best solution for your breed of dog.
I’d love to hear what you have to say. Do you use any of the products or methods mentioned in this article? Are you having success?
