Four years ago or so, we got a Richelle Pet Stuff tower. We still use ours everyday and I just love it. I like how it’s tall and skinny so it doesn’t take up much space. It has two storage drawers. We use this to store everything for our dogs except for their dry food. Leashes, harnesses, extra dog treats, toys, waste bags, etc are all in this tower. The top is a flat surface which we set an open bag of treats on. We leave this just inside our door so we can treat our dogs for going potty as soon as they come inside.

For pugs and many other small dog breeds, using a harness is recommended over using a collar. Collars can increase the odds of tracheal collapse which is common on many small dog breads. I also just like using a harness because if it pulls, whether it is on the human end or the dog end, it doesn’t put that pressure around their neck but instead spreads it over their chest and shoulders. We love puppia brand harnesses because they are soft and breathable. In other stiffer harnesses, our dogs looked uncomfortable when trying to lay down in the harness. We’ve had our Puppia harnesses for years and they are still going strong. Our favorite is the Puppia Ritefit.

Bladder sticks are a staple in our household. These are less-than-appealing for humans because they are made from bladder and they have an odor, but our dogs love these. We used to buy regular bully sticks but as our pugs have gotten older, we’ve begun to prefer bladder sticks. They are a bit softer than bully sticks so older and smaller dogs can handle them and my dogs get so excited to have one. Plus, they are quite a bit cheaper than bully sticks.

We got these steps when they were sold under the Solvit brand, but they are now available on Amazon as Mr. Herzher’s decorative pet steps. They are more expensive than other sets, but we tried other dog steps that were plastic, and others that were wooden, and they were quite unstable and wobbly. These are very high quality, solid, sturdy dog steps that do not wiggle around even if your dog runs up the steps. They are truly as high qualit as human furniture. These steps being more sturdy and secure than other dog steps means my dogs aren’t afraid to use them! We have a set that is 3-steps high for our bed, and a set that is 2 steps high that we now use on our couch. They are not cheap, but we have absolutely gotten our money’s worth because our dogs use them several times a day, everyday which greatly improves their quality of life now that they are older and struggle with jumping.
