pawTreats® are delicious and nutritious treats your dogs and cats will crave, and you’ll feel good about feeding! Dogs and cats are natural hunters who thrive on a diet of primarily meat and some vegetables in order to thrive and live a healthy, vibrant life. Our freeze-dried varieties are grain-free, all-natural, healthy, real-food treats made with simple ingredients based on your pet’s optimal diet. They are a blend of high-quality meat, fruits and vegetables that dogs and cats crave. 

Unlike most pet treats on the market that are made up of empty calories and fillers, and are high in carbohydrates, pawTreats are made with real meat and complementary fruits and vegetables. No fillers whatsoever! They're all natural and completely grain free. Available in freeze-dried or dry-roasted varieties to preserve the goodness of our ingredients.

2018 SalmonOil 8oz_Bottle_large.png

No more doggie breath with pawTree® Dental Sticks! Good oral hygiene is very important to the overall health of your dog, but it isn’t always easy or convenient to brush their teeth. Our Dental Sticks are delicious and nutritious and help to control plaque and tartar on your dog’s teeth while freshening their breath at the same time. Bring on the doggie kisses!

Our breeds tend to be more prone to UTI's especially young females. We highly recommend putting pups on a bladder support through crate and house training.

 

Bladder Health is Just a Few Chews Away! Many dogs and cats experience urinary tract issues. Bladder Support Plus is a veterinarian-developed formula that helps support and maintain the normal function of the urinary tract in both dogs and cats. This delicious supplement is a unique blend of D-Mannose, Cranberry, Glucosamine and Marshmallow Root that was specially formulated to support and maintain normal bladder health, maintain normal urine pH, and promote optimal urinary tract health and function. 

Pawtree Salmon oil is added to our dogs & puppies daily food and we do suggest continuing this for your Nosam puppy. Salmon oil is great for the skin and coat.

 Providing essential fatty acids that are critically important to your dog and cat’s overall health, pawTree’s nutrient-rich Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil contains a preferred 13:1 ratio of over 15 heart-healthy Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids. We highly recommend adding this to your pups food. 

Ideal for

  • Excessive Shedding

  • Dry Skin

  • Dull Coat

  • Itching (other)

  • Red, Irritated Skin

  • Hot Spots

  • Seasonal Allergies

2402 Duck_Medley_large.png

pawPairings​® Duck Medley Superfood Seasoning. You don’t like to eat the same thing every day, and neither does your pet. They crave variety, but changing their food daily leads to upset tummies. pawPairings Superfood Seasoning allows you to give your pet a different taste sensation at every meal WITHOUT stomach upset!

 

We add this to moms food when they go through their picky eating stage in pregnancy and I also add it to puppies food occasionally. It comes in several flavors. Great way to switch up the flavor without changing the protein source. We use the Duck & Salmon since our food is chicken flavored. 

COOKIE_MONSTER_MEDLEY1.png

elicious homemade cookies and cakes for your pets are easy with pawTree's Gourmet Baking Mixes. These wholesome, natural treats are baked with love, fresh from your oven to their tummies! Each recipe is crafted in small batches using only simple, human-grade ingredients.

Not a necessity but some people prefer to make homemade treats so I decided to share this for those that do. They also sell cookie cutters.

Treatsters are a line of durable treat-dispensing toys. Great for occupying your pets and challenging their minds. Stick their favorite treat or their customized kibble inside and watch the fun begin. Our Sticky Bone has two suction cups on the bottom that stick to floors, walls or doors.

When they're stressed out, throw them a bone - A Chillax to the Max™ Bone!

These long-lasting nylon bones are coated with a clear, soluble CBD herbal supplement for oral delivery. The CBD is gradually released as your dog chews or licks the bone.

The bone has a glossy appearance when new -- this is the minty CBD coating. As long as the bone is shiny, there is CBD available for consumption (don't forget to look in the nooks and crannies)!

CBD is an extract from the Hemp plant and is known for a variety of therapeutic effects.

CBD does NOT contain any psychoactive ingredients and will not make your dog "high". The CBD will start working in 30-60 minutes from ingestion and can last for 2-12 hours. This can vary depending on metabolism, activity, and how much is ingested. CBD is most effective after using it for several days. Also try the Chillax formula you can give as treats.

Herm SPRENGER Pinch Collar-Small 12" x 2.25mm. This is the size I recommend for All Vizsla's & GSP's. Even Adult dogs. I have used this size on Great Danes even when I have trained dogs for clients. You do not need larger than a 2.25 mm prong simply add more links to lengthen it as your dog grows. The larger prongs do not offer the same level of control and correction due to improper fit. If you order a prong be sure it is 2.25 mm only. Do not forget to order extra links. We start pups in prongs at 16-weeks

This is the exact crate we use for crate training puppies but in pink. I use this because it is easy to clean when first starting pups in the crate. 

Petmate Vari Kenne. I swap dogs to a plastic kennel into adulthood as they seem to do better with an enclosed plastic crate over wire. I personally prefer Ruff Tuff  or Gunner kennels but this is a cheaper option.

Furhaven Pet Dog Bed | Therapeutic Round Cuddle Nest Snuggery Burrow Blanket Pet Bed w/ Removable Cover for Dogs & Cats - Available in Multiple Colors & Styles. We have this on our porch and all of our dogs love this bed. Most of our customers rave about how their dogs love their cozy cave beds. We recommend the largest one they have for plenty of room. 

Personalized Name Plate Dog Collar - Laser Engraved, Waterproof, Odor Proof - Available in 4 Sizes. All of our dogs wear bio-thane collars. I highly recommend  as they don't frey, stink get wet, and wear out. I also recommend them due to the rivet on tags which are much safer for your pet than hanging tags which can get caught and /or fall off.

20 ft biothane check cord. This is needed to train your pup a reliable recall before swapping them off leash with an e collar. All puppy owners should have this on hand.

We use this bed to teach basic commands like sit, stay, place & off. This allows your puppy a more defined area for learning these commands and you can use it to give them a place to calm down in "time out". They also just love laying on it and we have one in each of our puppy kennels. 

Pet Club Heavy Duty Exercise Pen for Dogs. Exercise pens are super helpful for puppies. You can give your pup more room to play unsupervised indoors and out. Great for if you plan to travel with your pup as well. 

Hunting

Training the Versatile Hunting Dog shows you how to develop a great hunting dog with Chuck s new approach. This approach emphasizes letting your young dog first develop his natural abilities: use of nose, desire, cooperation, search, pointing, and tracking. Then, after his first season, Chuck shows you how to put the controls on your dog with chapters on the trained retrieve and whoa training. The versatile breeds also love water, and there are detailed chapters showing you how to train your dog to be an outstanding water retriever. Chuck also covers how to pick a pup, the importance of early socialization, introducing your pup to gunfire and to birds. This is a revolutionary book written for the popular versatile hunting breeds: German shorthair, wirehair, Griffon, Vizsla, and Weimaraner among others.

The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to foster, promote, and improve the versatile hunting dog breeds in North America; to conserve game by using well trained reliable hunting dogs before and after the shot. NAVHDA offers training days when you join a local chapter. Nosam is a member of NAVHDA.
