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.

PetSafe’s decorative dog steps come in two sizes, either two or three steps. They are furniture-grade quality and are very sturdy. They are great for reducing strain on the joints of a dog at any age. For older dogs who can no longer jump, they can provide the freedom to navigate up and down to the couch, bed or other high surfaces without assistance from people.
