Keep Your Dog Safe This Fall

Make sure that you’re keeping your dog safe this fall.

Fall is one of the most dangerous seasons for dogs. The reason? Because there are so many distractions for them outside.

Every time a leaf falls from a tree, your dog is going to want to go and chase it. This can lead to them wandering out into the street or into the woods.

Also, squirrels and other woodland creatures are going to be gathering their harvest before hibernation. Dogs are going to want to go and chase/eat/kill them. Make sure you keep an eye on your dog at all times.

We know it’s really hard to do that, but you’re going to have to try your best. You do not want your dog to get injured.

If you live in a colder environment, you’re going to want to make sure that your dog has proper winter clothing and paw wax.

Take all of the precautions that you need to in order to protect your dog from getting hurt.

Make sure you are taking your dog to the vet for regular checkups and you’re giving your dog preventative treatments.

Dog Treats – Are you making the right choice?

Dog treats are one of the staples in any pet owner’s arsenal. Want your dog to pay attention to you? Give them a treat. Want your dog to do something? Give them a treat. Want your dog to pee outside rather than inside? Give them a treat. Want your dog to stop barking? Give them a treat.

Dog treats solve almost any problem that you could be having with your dog. Unfortunately dogs don’t listen like humans do. This is because dogs aren’t naturally meant to understand humans! All they understand is their animal instincts.

This is why we have to bribe them with dog treats.

As a result, it’s essential that we only give our dogs healthy dog treats. Just like food, there is both good, high quality dog treats and low, poor quality dog treats.

Poor, low quality dog treats can actually be quite detrimental to your dog. Some of the known problems that they cause are stomach problems, digestive problems, allergies, and even death. It’s incredibly important not to purchase any dog treats that are made in Asia or have red dye in them. Both of which have been known to cause a plethora of problems in dogs.

When you’re purchasing your dog treats, you’re going to want to look for dog treats that are primarily made of meat products. We don’t mean meat-by-products, although meat-by-products certainly are better than the wheat/flour alternative. Instead we mean actual whole cuts of meat – such as beef and chicken and fish.

These are pack filled with nutrients and macros that your dog will absolutely love. Not only will they love it, but it’s insanely healthy for them to consume.

Make the right choice and get them some Vitakraft dog treats.

Finding the Right Dog Playpen for Your Dog

We get asked a lot by our customers about how to find the correct dog playpen for their dog or puppy. It’s not necessarily an easy question to answer. There are a lot of variables that go into finding the right dog playpen for your puppy.

First you need to make sure that the dog pen is of the correct height so that your dog won’t jump out of it. There are a lot of dog breeds that have no problem jumping over a dog playpen. If you have a bigger dog then you’re going to want to get a taller dog pen.

Next, you’re going to want to make sure that the dog playpen is sturdy enough to handle your dog running in to it and trying to escape. This is more of a problem with hyper dog breeds such as a pitbull or a jack russell. We recommend going with a wired dog playpen rather than a plastic one.

Lastly, you’re going to want to make sure that you get a dog playpen that can be expanded. Your dogs, and your family, always has the possibility of growing. Rather than having to buy several dog playpens over their lifetime, it’s much easier to buy a dog playpen that can expand by adding a few extra panels to it. One of the better things that manufacturers are doing is making sure that dog playpens can be expanded. For far too long, manufacturers were making dog playpens smaller on purpose because they wanted to increase sales. When dogs would grow, their owners would have to purchase a large dog playpen. This led to a lot of dog owners spending countless amounts of money on dog playpens. Thankfully, the manufacturers listened and made newer pet pens have attachment panels that you can purchase. This is really great if you have multiple dogs in your family. It’s also great if you have super hyper dogs that need to run around during the day. You can simply buy a lot of extra panels for the playpen and make a huge, safe dog enclosure for them to run around in.

You don’t want your dog to be able to easily escape their dog playpen. As you can see in the above videos, it certainly is possible that your dog escapes. This can lead to injury. Please make sure that you take the time to look at some great reviews for a wonderful dog playpen. Your dog’s life depends on it.

The Importance of a Quality Dog Leash

Finding the right dog leash for your dog can be more difficult than people think. Dog leashes can either be way too long or way too short. Either way, you’re going to be struggling to maintain control of your dog.

With a Vitakraft Retractable Leash, you’ll have the freedom to control whether or not your dog is close to you or far away from you.


This is of great importance to dog owners; especially those that live in highly populated areas. Dogs are often distracted by things when they’re walking with their owner. Not having the proper leash length can possibly lead to your dog getting injured.

Not only are dog injuries painful for your companion, but they’re also incredibly expensive.

This is why Vitakraft invented the Flexi leash – which is the best retractable leash available.

It provides your pet with the freedom without sacrificing any control. Flexi offers the highest quality retractable leashes with its durable casing and strong nylon leashes.

Getting a quality leash for your dog is often an afterthought for most dog owners. However, we really urge dog owners to make it a priority to get a great fitting dog leash.
