The club gains no financial benefit from shopping at the sites listed and provides them only as some ideas where to find useful dog equipment.We recommend:

  • A good harness to walk dogs on – one that does not restrict shoulder movement (Y front) and having a back and front attachment point can be useful
  • A longer lead for “sniffy walks” of 3 to 5 metres
  • A non chain lead for closer heeling walks – a double ended lead is handy to be able to use as a waist lead, tie out to posts or to be able to double attach it to front and back of the harness
  • Food toys to keep them occupied – Kongs and Snoop balls to stuff

https://www.trademe.co.nz/ – Often cheaper options for many products and a cheap source of basic long lines

https://www.shinecanine.co.nz/collections – Great for interactive toys and feeding enrichment

https://deltacanine.co.nz/ Great for long lines – biothane is a good material for long lines but not cheap

https://www.confidentcanines.co.nz/active-outlet.html The Copenhagen harnesses are great for walking but a big range of other great equipment on this site also. They do not keep many in stock so it may be a long wait for a new order from Europe but the Comfort Walk Air has a clip at the front which can be easier to put on when your dog has a big head for their body size.

https://www.bivouac.co.nz/brands/ruffwear.html The Ruffwear front range is another not cheap but quality harness

https://krittersuppliesnz.com/product/truelove-reflective-nylon-dog-harness/ The Truelove harnesses are cheaper than the Copenhagen or Ruffwear options but this site orders from overseas for direct delivery so can be a 2 week wait. Long leads are also available from here. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32707669148.html is the same harness from china but a bit cheaper and also will take weeks to come.
