Hmm all the dog gear I use currently:
Remington plastic crates (XLarge and Large) - purchased at Wholesale Sport Outfitters, a hunting and camping store, XL for bedroom & L for the SUV
soft sided crate from Midwest Camper - folds flat and good for travelling on the road, not recommended for chewers/puppies
Molly Mutt Duvets and stuff sacks - stuff old clothes, pillows, fleece blankets into the sack and zip up the duvet for a bed, washes easily, check their online site for retailers
leather leash - Hortons Quality K9, 4ft, 1/2" with a Herm Sprenger scissor clip
prong collar - 2.25mm links, Herm Sprenger stainless steel prong (Dog Sport Gear)
toys - JW Pet Good/Bad Cuz, West Paw Design Bow Wowzer balls (discontinued but these last through intense chewing) and Hurleys, fleece tugs made from cheap IKEA fleece blanket ($3) cut into strips and braided, Kyjen egg babies (all squeakers are dead but are still great for fetching and stuffing into animal skin)
grooming - Kong Zoom Groom or a rubber curry mitt, earthbath dog shampoo (will try something else next time, this stuff lasts only because she rarely needs a bath!), foot tub, some small hand towels, spray bottles, Happy Tails Spa dog insect repellent, styptic powder, nail clippers
outdoor gear - Ruff Wear Grip Trex boots, Cloud Chaser soft shell and Climate Changer fleece jackets, Palisades Pack (for hikes and camping); if no local retailer, check gear4dogs.com. My dog wears the coats in sub-freezing temps (we walk in -20C/-4F temps) because she has a close coat with little fur on her under carriage.
If I think of anything else, I'll add to this list later.
