If you are like most dog owners, your house is littered with any number of dog toys. But you can’t figure out what toys are best for your dog.  Dog toys range from balls to fleecy/plush animals to squeakers to interactive toys (I.T.). They are a necessary component of a good relationship with a dog. What your dog will ultimately play with depends on his tastes and what you allow him to have, and what you have given value to.

Here are some of Acme Canine’s favorites.

PETMATE: Pet Products made for and by pet people


DOG PRODUCT REVIEW: Game Changer Dog Toy



Training equipment is just that equipment used for training.  It is not meant to be worn all the time.  The use of proper training equipment will aid your dog’s ability to learn.  It is not only important to understand and use the right equipment, but it is also important that the equipment fits correctly.

Here are a few of our favorite companies.

It is virtually impossible for consumers to know the health value of packaged pet foods by viewing or feeding them.  Processing makes products non-descript, and, furthermore, manufacturers can cleverly make about anything look like anything they like, e.g., starch, textured vegetable protein and dyes can look like a pork chop.  Judging merit by reading advertising, marketing brochures and package labels can also be deceiving.

Ultimately a food can be no better than the competency and the principles of those producing it.

Here are some which Acme Canine has found to be of quality.
