PupSaver Booster Car Seat
"We have three of them: one in my car and two in my wife's car. They’re the safest dog bed you can buy for your car. Our dogs are our lives, as are most people's, and it’s the only crash-tested dog bed for your vehicle on the market. It has a clamshell design where your dog sits in it and if there's ever an accident, the Pupsaver encases the dog so the dog doesn’t get injured. They have saved us on a couple of occasions where we’ve had to slam on the breaks and otherwise the dogs would go flying. I feel safe bringing him wherever I go."

Carhartt Pet Firm Duck Insulated Dog Chore Coat
"That keeps him very, very warm. We had another Boston Terrier, and his name was Jake and he lived until he was 13, and that’s actually a hand-me-down from Jake, which is really sweet. We put that around Lenny and he stays really warm. It’s definitely durable, too."

Go Pet Club Soft Crate
"I get so many compliments on it, it’s not even funny. I'm able to transport it really easily, it collapses to the point of being a suitcase, and it’s super thin. You then take it out, assemble it, and it has a fur flooring in it. I take a fan and put it right out front, and he stays nice and cool. It’s not only great for dog training but different events, as well."

West Paw Zogoflex Zisc Dog Frisbee
"Lenny has had one of those, believe it or not, for seven or eight years now. Everyone who follows us knows this thing affectionately as Bluey. And Bluey has stood the test of time, which is incredible. Yes, it’s not a whole frisbee anymore but it’s still Lenny’s all-time favorite toy. He brings it wherever he goes. He plays with it every single day and we’ve had people send them to us as gifts for once Bluey goes. It’s really been the only frisbee that’s been able to last for this long."

Plato Wild Caught Baltic Sprat Dog Treats
"Our dogs love the smell of these and there's nothing overprocessed or any chemicals, and they're sustainable and another way to add omegas into their diet. As soon as we open the bag they come running down the stairs and line up."

Barkbox Memory Foam Platform Dog Bed
"Lenny loves that and it comes with a toy as well — a little pea so it’s the Prince and the Pea. We love the BarkBox company, it makes great toys as well as dog beds. The bed is really plush, it’s very easy to clean, it’s nice and minimalist, and you can also put them anywhere. On the bottom, there are these sticky pads so they stay firm to the ground, and Lenny will seek those out around the house, and we put one in front of our electric fireplace and he’ll lay there. He kind of has it made."

VetriScience Laboratories Glycoflex 3
"The Glyoflex products, we really like the whole line of that. They grow with your dog, which is nice, and they offer preventative support and care. They’re easy to feed as treats or in meals and they keep Lenny super active. We use these from puppy age daily. Lenny not only uses it but all our dogs use them. They have MSN and glucosamine, that’s why we highly recommend them."

Fi Series 2 GPS Tracker Smart Dog Collar
"The Fi dog collar is fantastic. It comes in four colors initially and then you can buy bands for it. It’s very easy to clean and I relate it to an Apple Watch for your dog. It tracks their steps, monitors their activity level, tracks their sleep patterns, which can be really helpful. It has a light as well, so if he goes on at night and I activate it through the app and it shines this green neon light on the ground. If your dog gets lost, you can track them down within feet using the Fi dog collar."

Back on Track Therapeutic Dog Mesh Coat
"The technology really works after a hard day of play or dog sports. We noticed a major difference in recovery time using this jacket. So that’s huge for Lenny now that he’s considered a senior dog, he’s 9 ½ years old. Longevity is huge for him, so we want him in tip-top shape and that he isn’t sore the next day. It’s definitely a must-have for active and sport dogs and for senior dogs. In terms of recovery for dogs that are active, there is no better piece of clothing."

Dogzymes Ultimate Skin Coat Organic Coconut Algal Oil
"That is our go-to supplement for shiny skin and healthy coats, especially with Lenny being a show dog. Everyone always asks, ‘How do you keep his coat so shiny?’ Lenny has a shine to his coat at all times and I give the majority of the credit to my wife because, in terms of keeping him looking his best from a physical appearance, she’s so into making sure the dogs are eating properly, that they have an amazing diet, that they have all their supplements, and that we buy the best treats for them."
