I do a lot of shopping online for my dogs. I browse around multiple sites such as Amazon, Petsmart, Chewy, and more to find the best deals and best products that my dogs will love. I usually keep a note of all the interesting dog products that I come across.
Here’s a list of some of the most expensive dog products that I’ve come across. Maybe some of the readers here can afford one of these items!
As a protection dog trainer I was skeptical of this collar. It is rated as being a low to medium stim. compared to the other Dogtra collars I use, but after testing it on a wide range of dogs with different temperaments and drives, I am very impressed.
When tested on my own neck at the levels I normally work dogs at the stim. was cleaner. At lower settings compared to other Dogtra collars it is actually more effective. I feel this is a combination of it sits better on the dogs because of design and the frequency must be different.
I even stayed skeptical until I bought at least 5 more of them for the business and clients before I left this review just in case the performance was a fluke with that one collar. Every one has performed great. Many dogs I actually am using half the stim level compared to the professional line Dogtra collars I normally use.
The only real criticism I can give is that the rheostat adjustment knob is very inconsistent on how much drag it has or doesn’t have depending on that particular unit. The “feel” from one to the next isn’t the same. I suggest that Dogtra makes the knob have adjustable drag so it can be tailored to the individual feel of the user.
This is a pretty expensive training equipment, but hey it might be worthit! This thing runs at $240+.
This cage has strengths and weaknesses. The welds are horrible. There are some design flaws that alllow the dog too much access to the hinges and the pan underneath. Our separation anxiety German Short Haired Pointer was able to easily work the latches on the first day we put her in it. We ended up having to put locks on them to be effective. An extra bar or two where the latches are would make a big difference. Since I’m going to have to take this to a welder to fix all of the issues, I think I might actually have him weld a plate to protect the latches from her. The pan underneath is reachable and she has managed to fling it several feet away from the cage. If you put the handle down, it helps but is not completely dog proof still. I may have the welder

I may have the welder add a latch or something for it too. And then there are the welds on the hinges. One of them just popped right off. Luckily it still fits on there and for the most part is still secure, but yet another thing I’ll have to have welded on this. And
One of them just popped right off. Luckily it still fits on there and for the most part is still secure, but yet another thing I’ll have to have welded on this. And finally, there are the casters. Two of the spots where the casters screw into the bottom had welds break at different times (1 day apart). For as much money as this costs, I really thought this was going to be better quality. Instead, I’m going to have to have someone do quite a bit of work to get it fully functional again.
This is an excellent thing to have in your car for your road trips with your dog. Our precious dog now has enough room for moderate travel, as he has comfortably ridden on 4+ hour trips with this thing in place. Additionally, it is easy to clean, and folds up nicely for storage in the trunk. So far it has withstood a big slobbery cutie for quite some time, and we’re very satisfied.
It’s quite expensive, but it fits really well with a van of any size. We own a big Lexus SUV and this comes in handy.
This is like a baby stroller for your dog. It’s pretty awesome, but quite pricey and useful.
I really like it. The only problem with the instructions is that they illustrate the hitch pointing out a downward angle, but you should really have it level, as else you will struggle with the spring causing difficulty getting the pin through.
I took my dog for a ride in it. He really enjoyed it for awhile, but he started complaining because it was hot outside. By that time, I was 6 miles from home, and he was really frustrated.
It comes with a washable mat/pillow thing to pad the bottom, but it’s not enough. Line it with a dog bed. That’s probably part of why my dog was complaining.
Assembly and setup were simple. Wheels do not come pre-inflated, so hopefully you’ve got a pump.
I don’t think it’s very rain-proof, or even rain resilient, just giving it a lookover and observing the material.
The material is heavy and quality, but I’m just skeptical as to how it will stand up to rain.
Wind adds a LOT of resistance. I suggest having the front screen free so more air can pass through.
It was really fun. I tested the LARGE model for safety, jerking fast left and right to see if it might tip my 40-ish pound fatty, Mr. Trip. It looked like a possibility, but I went pretty hard, and it did not tip much. The large model is wide enough, with a low center of gravity.
Going straight down a very steep hill, no problems. I coupled this with a jogger bike leash, so I can exercise him one way, and chauffeur him the other.
When wind was not heavy, it was not very noticeable unless going up a steep hill.
I had a few mishaps with it. Once your dog jumps in, the weight on your axel is going to knock your bike over. Gotta prop it up somehow.
Or attach the trailer only after the dog is in so you can get a better hold of your bike.
The pockets are nice. Not a lot of use for them (yet). This can double as a nice carrier for groceries or laundry. I think I could fit my pit-hound mix in here with him if I had to/wanted to.
They’d be a bit over the weight limit between them. There is a spot on each side for a lead to be clipped.
All in all, I am very happy so far. I will update once I’ve been using it a while.
I’ve had these stairs for a month now and am very pleased. Besides the fact that the fabric is pink, these are excellent stairs. They are made from a very sturdy and attractive dark wood and come pre-assembled so all I needed to do was pop the stairs into place. They are much bigger in length than I expected and take up a big portion of my bedroom, but my dog is worth it! They measure: Length (sticks out from bed) 36 inches. Height 18 inches. Depth of each step 12 inches. Width of step 15.5 inches. It can also be set up as a ramp by simply lifting each stair and folding down the wood piece that props it up. It’s really easy.
I previously used some smaller steps for my 16 pound Dachshund. Even though they were a little short, he would just make a big jump from the top step to get on the bed, however, he NEVER used them to go down. Instead, he would just jump off the bed. Now that he’s 7 years old, I really wanted something taller so he wouldn’t have to jump from the top stair to get on the bed but more importantly, I wanted something that he could use to go down. After a week of tempting him with treats, he now goes up and down these new stairs all by himself.
Also, I have a 65 pound lab mix who can use the stairs. It holds her weight just fine and is wide enough for her body. Don’t hesitate to buy these stairs because of the high cost. They are totally worth the money!
Well there you have it! I spend a lot of money on dog food and dog products, but these were probably one of the most expensive ones. If you found this article funny or useful share it with your friends! I would also love to hear from you on some of the most expensive products you’ve bought for your dog!
