Since our recent articles have focused on dog training, we though it might be useful to provide a list of items that we frequently use for dog training. If you don't have any of these, you'll have easy links to view them and add them to your cart. You can also just pick the ones you don't have.
(You can buy them through our affiliate links at the same cost and we appreciate it, but you can also just get them on Amazon or the site of your choice.)
We'll do similar lists for cats and horses soon, but in the meantime, these are products we have tried, we like, and that we really use.
RealBeYourself Dog Training Kit:
Flat Leather Buckle Collar for Tag Display and Everyday Use
Sprenger Training Collar for Leash Training and Problem Correction
6 Foot Lead for Training
Short Traffic Lead for Working, Heel Training and Daily Walks
20 Foot Lead for Recall Training
Treat Pouch or Nail Apron (Apron works for Backup/Budget)
Optional but Useful Items:
Thick Horse Lead for Tie=Up and Strong Pullers
Pupperoni Training Treats
E-collar for remote training (Not required, nice and humane tool, only brand we use)
Service Dog or Working Dog Harness (Doubles as seat restraint)
For Serious Adult Service Dogs - Mobility Harness
If you prefer a small bundled kit, there are a couple that we have not tried. They are simple and lack some of the tools we prefer to use, but if you don't want to pick and choose, take a look at what seems to be the best one:
Most of the good stuff about Maddie "Be Yourself" Gee is on the About page, but that page got out of hand. Don't go there. Maddie is an animal expert, a crazy person, and a writer. Full Disclosure - this blog does have Amazon affiliate links in it for products that Maddie likes. Your use of the Amazon links is greatly appreciated, but the intent is just to help keep things running and offer giveaways. You are welcome to search for the items elsewhere if you prefer it.

Legal and other weird disclosures that people want us to make: This is a condensed version. If you really want to read the long version, see it on the About page. This is a personal blog owned by Maddie. Other people sometimes author guest posts or other content. No one gets paid a salary to work on this. It costs us something to run it since prizes are given away (and we get rare donations but we usually pay for the prizes ourselves) and we spend time and cash on creation. We are not paid directly for the reviews themselves, we do it because we want to comment. So, to complete this goofy disclosure statement, we have a material connection with most or all of what we talk about because that's just how our lives work and how we made this blog. Amazon would like us to state: "We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites." We collect email address through newsletter signups and book giveaways but we do not collect any other data when you just visit this site. If email addresses are collected, you can opt-out at that time on signups for our newsletters, if you opt-in you can unsubscribe anytime. Thanks!
