This page provides links to some of the training equipment and enrichment SUPPLIES that we use and/or recommend to our clients.
Leashes, Collars and Harnesses
This harness is nearly custom fit as you purchase it in 3 sections. The Y-shaped chest piece allows for full range front leg motion. Each section has a wide felt band beneath the nylon strip to prevent chafing. This harness includes both front and rear D-rings for leash attachment.
This harness is based on the TTouch® UK harness that was designed by Sarah Fisher. It has a design that will not interfere with the dog’s forward movement and has two point of contact for leash attachment.
This harness has six points of adjustment so that it can be customized to comfortably fit almost any body style without constricting the dog’s forward motion. It has two points of attachment for multiple leash options.
This harness fits snugly, with a soft girth strap to prevent chafing. This harness works well while training a heavy leash puller. It comes with both front and back D-rings. The back D-ring is attached via a partial slip. The front clip is attached to a cross-chest strap that does work by restricting front leg motion.
This leash is very versatile. It can be used as a two point harness – clipped to both front and back D-rings for added control and weight distribution in large dogs; as a single 4-foot leash; or let out to make a longer leash for sniffing.
This harness is a great fit for odd-shaped pups, seniors and front leg amputees. It had two girth attachments and includes a handle in case you pup needs some help.
Lupine makes a full line of collars, leashes and harnesses in a wide variety of patterns for both dogs and cats. They offer a lifetime guarantee on all of their products – even if they are chewed through!

Miscellaneous Training Equipment
Similar to vinyl window decals, window film can be easily applied and removed with no residue or razor blades needed. If you have a dog that stares out the window and barks at passers by, this is a great way to stop this fixating behavior and prevent the resulting reactive outbursts. Window film lets in plenty of light, while not allowing your dog to see out. It can be left on permanently or used as a management tool while training alternative behaviors.
These 3-in-1 curtains are made to act as a sound barrier, a black out curtain and a thermal curtain. This can be a great option for a noise phobic/reactive dog, loud urban environments or to aid in setting up your dog’s safe space.
