Dog Whistle to Stop Barking from PetVitalix really does work!


I’m a proud puppy parent/owner of a 8-month old hound-mix named Bink and we are still working on dog training. he already knows how to sit but we are currently working on “leave it” and stay and come. This Dog whistle is really helpful! It actually works! It gets Bink’s attention. He isn’t bad about barking so haven’t tried it for that yet. I love that it is so small and lightweight. It is only 2 inches long so it can easily be put on a key-ring. I like to wear it on the included lanyard. I also like that I blow the whistle once and that usually works quite well. It really is great for training. I tried this with our pup off-leash at the park and was surprised how well it works from a distance. I had another dog run over to me as I am so happy that I had a chance to receive this product for free in exchange for an unbiased review. It actually has exceeded my expectations. I have also found the pdf copy of the FREE “Dog Whistle Instruction Guide” (included) very helpful too.

I really love these! They are fun for both adults and kids! I love that I can use them on windows and that they easily wash off with soap and water. Perfect for crafts and my son really likes them! My son and I are using them on a weekly basis when we do arts and crafts projects. They also are perfect for a dry erase board too! You have to shake them a few times when they are new before they work-but then they flow easily. I love the chalk look on projects. These are a real Must-Buy!

Vitamin D3 800 IU Gummies- A Chewable Supplement by Nutrabear 100% Vegetarian for Kids & Adults


I have to admit that I am a bit surprised that these aren’t exactly bear shaped but thy don’t claim to be! The texture is similar to a gummy bear but not quite as soft-more like a fruit snack. I think that the cherry-peach flavor is quite accurate and my son, who can be particular at times, had no problem taking them. There is a slight after taste but not unpleasant. These are really easy for kids to take and I really like that they are for both adults and kids.
