Let’s get right down to business. You can find tons of great deals at the Dollar Tree – the one where everthing costs $1. You can get swindled, too.
Practically disposable rope & toys – $1
These things get trashed fast, even under the best of supervision. At $1, I give them away, and you can stock up for life.
Metal food bowl – $1
You actually can’t clean all the boogies out of a ceramic or platic bowl. Their surfaces are rough under a microscope and hold gross stuff. Metal is smooth under a microscope and cleans easily.
Treat Container – $1 Lid that screws closed. I’ve thrown it in the dishwasher.
“Cat” toy – $1 Secretly created for dogs, these are a must have to keep your dog busy, exercised, and trained. Teach your dog to sit, wait, chase toy, get toy, and drop toy. Then you can play again!!!
Tug toys – $1
Again, totally priced to be abused.
You can go through one of these every week and still not break the bank.
Loose Leash Walking Training Tool – $1
I’m not giving out all the goodies on this one. But trust me, its neat.
Flea Bath (blue Dawn dish soap) – $1
This is the fastest way to get fleas OFF your pets!
Antibacterial Wipes – $1
These things come in handy for grimy, training treat hands.
“Place” mat – $1
Teach your small dog or puppy to go to “place” to stay out of mischief. (One of the most important things you can teach your dog!)
Ok, this is where things start to fall apart.
Best photo frame ever – $1
So, this one is a mixed bag. I initially intended to glue magnets to the back of this. Except, it’s actually not flat, and you can’t hang against a flatwall. But its cute.
Nail Clippers – $1
These are only good for small dogs. They are pretty cheap and can’t withstand tons of pressure. The black piece that holds the cutters open also broke off, immediatly. Never to be closed again. It worked fine with my cat, Bobbi.
The Never… Run. Hide. Scream. No stars.
The Wall of Nightmares (Food?) – $1
These consumables from the Dollar Tree are terrifying. They’re out of date, from China, made with unnamed meats and digest, and other things known to the state of California…
Poop bags – $1
Skip it. You try to open the roll and the bags just start shredding. Plastic is incredibly, incredibly thin. Just pay the money for these!
Scary, smoked, and out of date “bones” – $1
Do not buy these. From anywhere. These “smoked bones” split and crack and can be accidentally ingested resulting in very expensive, dangerous surgery. They’re also made in China.
So now you know, get some cheapie toys and metal bowls and your life is set. Just buy or make your own foods or treats from highly reputable pet stores.
