      Advantages

      • "made well "
      • strong
      • "hold quite a few treats"
      • "great fun for dogs"

      Disadvantages

      • "none at all"

      A cracking way to keep your dog entertained.... and see how clever they are..

      Dogs love to learn, no matter what they're doing, they love to do something new as often as they can. This keeps their brains active and keep them happy. So it's nice when you can give them a toy that will make them use their brains in order to get what they want. And this is one of those toys that makes your dog think in order to get a reward, once he knows there's a reward in it for him.
      Let me explain. This is a Kong toy so you know that it's going to be strong and fun for any dog. The idea in this one is that the toy is filled with the dogs favourite treats and then it is given to the dog in order for him to get the treats out of. There is one snag to it. The only way for the treats to come out are through a small gap that is on the toy, this gap is big enough for small treats to come out of but not so big that they all come out at once.
      It is shaped like a pair and is hollow to accommodate the treats that your dog intends to get at. The pair if made of a tough plastic and is thick so that it can withstand your dogs teeth and claws as he whacks this around the floor in the hope of the treats coming out of the hole.

      To fill it with treats you simply unscrew the top away from the bottom section, pour in the treats and screw the two sections back together. Now give it to your dog and stand by for some fun. You can even take your phone and record your dog as he sets about working this one out.

      All dogs are different so it may take longer for some dogs to work this out, but most dogs, including my border collie, worked it out in a matter of minutes, to the point of simply knocking it over, trapping it with his paw then gently rolling back and forth so the treats dropped out of the hole. But no matter how long it takes your dog to figure this out you'll know they're having fun doing it.

      The cost of keeping your dog happy and entertained is less than £10, which is great value for money in any one's eyes.

      Advantages

      • "He enjoyed it while it lasted"

      Disadvantages

      • "It gets tourned open in minutes"

      I think I am enjoying the fact that they suck...

      I went to the local Pet Shop and again, my eyes were stolen with yet again another toy from the same company that was notorious for me because of its false indestructible advertising, and because of the way it gets torn apart, in ways it can be endanger your dog's stomach. I saw this snake and when I picked it up I noticed it has 6 squeakers in it, and has an elongated shape. I thought it would hold up better, because being smaller and longer, my dog can`t pin it down and tear it apart in that way his breed is famous for.

      I really do not like him acting like that, he is a part of an infamous breed for bad and aggressive behavior, and I try to avoid toys that reveal that killer type of instinct. I try to avoid those toys that make him want to kill it. When I saw his reaction upon bringing the toy home, he was thrilled, he began shaking his tail like crazy and just wanted a piece of it. When I see he enjoys this, even they are trash and much worse that they say makes me not hate them that much.

      I gave him the toy and gone about my business, when I returned to see how was he doing, surprinsingly he was not all orange, it`s common for this toys to dye all over the dog and house. This one lasted about 3 min... yup - 3 min -- than the tongue was gone (saw that and thought what a dumb thing to put on a dog toy), next the eyes (which are raised and thus irresistible) are ripped open... and finally -- in the next 3 min play session - the body was ripped open.... this is a piece of junk.

      But he really enjoys them and then I get to play tug-o-war with the remains.

      Advantages

      • "Compliments a lot of outfits"
      • Durable
      • "A little bit special"

      Disadvantages

      • "Had no money in when it arrived"

      Don't touch my purse.

      This is a stylish product from the gorgeous range by Ted Baker.

      I ordered this online at Littlewoods and the moment it came it was like a special event. The box in which it comes in is styled like an evelope or parcel with a stamp of the man himself on, when you remove the lid it was perfectly wrapped.
      The product itself is great qaulity and goes oviously well with most of his range, which your compelled to buy [darn that marketing].
      The material inside is in this case, black, with beautiful pictures of a dog inside. The bow clip to close the purse is a sweet touch. It is very sleek but spacious. Everything a lady needs.

      Advantages

      • "Cheap "

      Disadvantages

      • "Doesn`t really work all that well"

      Good ideea, but once the dog associates it with medicine, it`s over.

      So, every dog`s worst nightmare must be the vet, mine, just like yours, hates the vet and everything about it. The funny thing is that he doesn`really feel the vaccines, only the bad ones. But he hates the pills, oh the pills, it is his worst enemy by far. He doesn`t snap at the vet, he never snapped at anyone, but he just shuts those gator jaws and there no opening them. He refuses food, water or listening to me.

      When I do it at home, it's a nightmare, he runs off like crazy and hides under the bed, when I finally get him controlled and pinned to a wall, we sit face to face, a classical Mexican standoff between man and beast. I eventually win, I always do, but with a crust, about 30 minutes of my time for a damn pill.

      Mikki pill gun is esentially just that, a gun made for pills, so you can put your pills in it and shot that pill down the beasts throat without any hardship about it. Esentially it`s supposed to be ideal for administering tablets and medications to pets who may be uncooperative. Pills are placed at the end of the syringe once it has been filled with water and when ejected into your pet's mouth, the water sends he pill to the back of the mouth for the easiest consumption. Made from tough polystyrene, the Mikki Pill Gun is washable for re-use.

      The concept is good, and for most normal sized pills it works, but if it`s to small it`s bad, if it`s a bit big, it won`t work, then I have to fight is urge to keep his mouth shut.

      Advantages

      • strong

      • "great for traiing"

      Disadvantages

      Keep your dog under control whilst your standing far away from him

      When it come to training dogs one of the more important things that any dog should know, apart from walking at heal, sit, stay and wait, is to come to you on command, no matter how far he's wondered off.
      This is where this long lead comes into its own as that what it is really, a long lead. The one I had was the 10 metre version, although there were other size, a 5 metre which had 'ideal for puppies' on it.
      It's primary used from dog training, for example, getting your dog to wait whilst you walk away from him. Then, with the lead attached to the dogs collar at one end and you holding the other end, you have control over your dog even if he decides to chase that cat that keep tormenting him...
      This lead is made of a soft material that looks like it's stitched along the centre, although without taking it apart I'm not so sure. But what ever it's made of it's as strong as any other lead and handles a lot of pulling. What it's not to good at is keeping dry as it seems to suck up any water that touches it, like a sponge only longer, which means that this lead is more for those dry days of training, not when it's lashing it down outside.
      It is long enough for me to walk away from my dog whilst knowing that, if he ran off, which he used to at first, I'd be able to take control of him without having to shout all over the park. This way he is still on a lead yet has the freedom to move where he's told to, (eventually, as all dogs take a little time to train).
      The clasp on the end is strong and well attached to the lead itself, which means that there's very little chance of this coming away from the lead, which is nice to know.
      It's almost impossible to wrap the lead up the way it came in the package, coiled around itself, so I tend to just wrap it around my elbow and shoulder which is easier, even if it's a little bigger than it could be when I put it away.

      This lead, the 10 metre version, is on sale for between £5 - £10 which is not too bad if you want to teach your dog a few commands without fear of him running off to the nearest river.

      Advantages

      • "Clear skin!"
      • "Get results within weeks or if you are lucky days. "
      • "Use in your own time"
      • Painless
      • "Easy to use"

      Disadvantages

      Reach for the light!

      I had never heard of this product before it was highlighted in a magazine and I've never heard or seen it since, I really wish they would advertise this product more and market it stronger.The benefits are amazing.
      This lumie light clear changed everythnig for me.
      I had suffered from acne since my early teens into my adulthood which was just something that cripled my confidence.
      I have tried most, if not all the products on the market, tried every tip in the magazines, help from friends, weird concoctions from the dark ages, absolutely everything, within measure but nothing. I even was referred to hospital but had a bad reaction to a tablet which honestly was my last resort.
      The pain I was in and the heat of my skin was unbearable, and that's difficult to write considering others go through a hell of a lot worse in terms of pain and illness.
      So one lovely day whilst hiding in my room I read about this product researched it like crazy and read all the reviews I could and thought this is actually my last chance.
      The product arrived quickly and well packed.
      All the information you need comes in a handy booklet and the website runs along side to help you but its basically straight forward.
      The product can be used in your own time. A minimum of 15 minutes directly to the skin or 30 minutes where the light can be placed on a stand provided.

      The Lumie light clear is basically a LED system of two light colours. Blue and Red.

      The blue light is there to kill the bacteria while the red light reduces the inflammation and heals the skin.
      The product has a timer so you don't have to watch the clock.
      The product comes with yellow glasses, their not groovy, but it does help with the strong LED lights.
      You can use directly to skin or hands free, esay!
      Developed with trusted and leading dermatologists.

      Absolutely everything you need is in this one product.

      Add up all the lotions, potions, liqiuds and all sorts like foundation, cover up sticks, time wasted in heading out to get the creams or the time you have to use putting the products on your skin in the bathroom. This product will reduce your bills and give you back your time even better you will get beauitful clear skin.

      It took three months to clear and heal my skin but now even if I get a breakout it can be treated within the 15/30 minutes and the next day hardly, if not anything is there.

      I really thought I had to live with acne and cover up with foundation, which hinders but now I don't. I can use branded products of serums now and toners that will help my skin and not cause a breakout or my acne to return. I have so much confidence now and a lot to thank this company for because unlike other products, for me this is personal and changed not just my skn.
      I wish I could give this product a million stars!

      Advantages

      • None

      Disadvantages

      • "Colour comes off"
      • "Lasts about 30 seconds"
      • "False advertising"

      Indestructible....NOT

      From the company that makes a lot of varieties of the same crap, brought you another one, this time they advertise it as INDESTRUCTUBLE. That is a big claim for something that the last time holds his own about 2 minutes. The reason I bought again, something from the same name was that he actually enjoys, not because it does what promised, but because he enjoys tearing it apart piece to piece and at least he does, not to it to my couch or pillows, so this is not the last product I bought from them.

      The product

      They claim the best squeaker defense technology in the business. `Unlike our competitor’s squeaky toys, our Extreme Seam Invincibles keep squeaking even after being punctured. With double-layered seams and an inner liner of durable material, these new Invincibles can withstand attacks from the sharpest teeth and toughest claws. It all adds up to a squeaker toy that’s built stronger to last longer.``

      My personal opinion

      The toys come in different sizes, colors, and shapes. The most common are the Gecko and the Snake. The toys are covered with a more durable cloth that is fuzzy and suppose to withstand quite a bit of chewing. Inside the toys are what is described as durable squeakers that, if punctured, will still squeak even after hours of being bitten and chewed upon. The larger the toy ordered, the more squeakers that are sewn into the toy.

      My dog again managed to find kinks in the lining of the toys that, once penetrated, will cause the toys to open leaving stuffing and squeak toys all over the place. The squeakers did withstand quite a bit of chewing before the squeaking went silent. But then they shattered in a million little pieces. It lasted a bit more than 40 seconds this time, so the indestructible name proved very much wrong. I know nothing is indestructible, but it would help do to like advertised.

      Advantages

      • "good simple depth guide"
      • "easy to use"
      • powerful
      • Compact

      Disadvantages

      • "single speed"
      • "no reverse"

      The power of a dyson in the body of an argos value range vacuum

      I saw this on here and my mind went back to when I had one of these, way back... flash back... to be honest, I think this one is still at the back of the shed. It stopped working after it was left outside, unbeknown to me, all over a winter season, which is not good for any electrical tool. But for some reason I don't think I through it out... sentimental I think...

      Anyway, the main reason I remember this was the size of it, I mean, how often do you get something that's the size of a starter pistol that offers the power of a magnum 357..??? never. Until this cam along.
      It's smaller than your standard corded drill, in fact, it's smaller than your cordless drills too, being about 160mm high and 200mm long. But for a small drill it has the power of a thousand elephants pulling a tractor across an ice rink...
      The 6.5mm chuck is NOT key-less, (I told you it was old), so you do have to make sure that you don't lose the key as there's no chance of loosening or tightening the chuck without it.
      On the left side, as you're using it, there is a depth gauge which consists of a 100mm long rod with a blob of thickness at the front end. This rod is pushed forward or backward along it's groove and locked in place with the wingnut on the front. This rid lefts you fix a certain depth so that you get a constant depth each time you drill.

      The trigger is delicate and as it only offers one speed, fast, you have no control no matter how gently you squeeze the trigger. It's all or nothing with this one. Then there's the usual lock button on the side of the handle to lock the trigger in the on position.
      The mains cable is about a metre and a bit so there's no real issues with being trapped to the plug socket. If you do need to get further away from the plug socket there's always an extension lead.

      In all, it's a lion trapped inside the body of a domestic cat that, when unleashed, will rip through what ever is on front of it....although I wonder what it would be like if it were cordless..??? It's a catch 22 moment here.. it would be more mobile as a cordless but if it was a cordless it would lose the power.... so it's cord or power..???

      It sells for about £50, which, If you can still buy one and you're after a powerful, easy to use and small power drill then this is for you....

      Health Aid Cedarwood essential oil

      WHAT IS IT?

      This is essential oil that is made by Health Aid. The oil is Cedarwood and Health Aid make many other oils also.

      WHY DID I BUY IT?

      I made some of my own toiletries and I wanted my husband to try them but he did not like the feminine oils I had used to make the produce gor me and our daughters. I knew he would like his items to smell like Cedarwood because it is masculine and smells good also.

      WHAT I THINK

      This is the first time I have bought Cedarwood oil and I did not know it was available until I looked at a website that had got a large choice of oils. I am sure my pharmacy does not sell Cedarwood oil.

      It comes in a 10mg bottle and the top is shaped to be a dropper so you can measure out a very small amount of drops without accidentally pouring too much of the oil in.

      The fragrance is quite strong but it is pleasing also because it is rich and very smooth. It has got a natural smell that is like the smell of a forest or a woodland, I think it smells beautiful and this oil is just as nice as any expensive aftershave that includes Cedarwood.

      I think this is oil that is very easy to work with and I used it for my toiletries and have burned it in my oil burner also. It makes the air in my home smell beautiful and even though it is very masculine it does not smell like leather at all so the perfume is friendly to my nose instead of being overpowering. I used only a small amount in the toiletries and my husband said how pleasing the fragrance was, it did not effect his skin in any way.

      ANYTHING ELSE

      This Cedarwood oil costs about £5 and that is value because it lasts for a long time and has many uses as an unusual smelling essential oil.

      5 Dooyoo Stars.

      Advantages

      • None

      This is the perfect retrieving toy for medium-large dogs

      Owning a very mouth oriented breed, you always want to train your dog retrieval skills alongside the dogs jaw and neck muscles. This not only for dogs that are made for biting, you retriever will enjoy the retrieving part of the toy, and will use some stronger neck and biting muscles, so his jaw won`t suffer when he plays tug-o-war with friends.

      The product comes in 3 different sizes and shapes, and I bought all 3 of them. I bought the smallest size in Italy when he was just a little pup, I wanted him to develop strong jaw and neck muscles since young, for a Pit Bull they are a must since they are always chomping on something. Besides that, he was really stubborn and retrieval is very important. Not because I want him to get my beer, but because he must listen to you, and retrieving is a simple command.

      The dumbbell was great, but he very soon outgorwned it, this is probably the products main disadvantage, The center rod is too thick, but too narrow for a dog to carry comfortably especially when he has outgrown it. No problem, it`s really cheap and I bought the second size, at about 8 months I bought the largest, the third size.

      It held up very well the test of time, it has been some years now and although its battered by those alligator jaws it has not come apart. The smaller one did, now his head is so big that he could easily chomp the smaller one and he eventually broke it, but of course if your dog's mouth is perfect for the dumbbell it will last for certain.

      Versace Femme Eau de Parfum

      The Versace Femme Eau de Parfum is available for GBP 30.84. The Eau de Parfum is available as 30ml, 50ml and 100 ml sprays.

      The Eau de Parfum comes in a rectangular glass bottle with a golden cap. The glass bottle features a Versace Medusa image on each side.

      The Eau de Parfum is described as follows. "Versace Pour Femme Eau de Parfum opens with fresh dew drops sweetened by a lush hydroponic guava, and icy hints of blackcurrant, all of which harmoniously fuse with touches of wisteria. The sumptuous and floral heart represents the true signature of the perfume, with a sensual floral explosion of light and vibrant flowers; orchid, lotus flower and nymphea, delicately emphasized by a gentle marriage of jasmine, and azalea. In the base notes the fragrance is finally enveloped by the silky softness of a veil of musk, wrapped up by the preciousnessof warm and delicate kashmir wood and moroccan cedarwood, revealing their magnificent sensuality."

      The Eau de Parfum has a fresh, floral scent. A fruity scent, that reminds of guava and lilac can be noticed. Followed by a floral jasmine scent. A heavy musk and vanilla scent can be noticed afterwards. The main accords are floral and fresh. The scent is intensive, nevertheless the scent is not too pushy. The intensity is heavy.

      The Eau de Parfum is long-lasting and the scent is intensive.

      I can recommend the Versace Femme Eau de Parfum, as the scent is long-lasting and intensive. The main accords are floral and fresh.

      Advantages

      • "easy to hold and handle"
      • "well made bodies"

      Disadvantages

      • "drill panics on fourth screw hole in brick wall"
      • "saw can's cut through wood for too long as power drains"
      • "no power from batteries after a few minutes use"
      • "saw is on the heavy side"

      With power like this all DIYers are doomed

      The saw is a heavy beast and holds a 140mm circular blade which can be bought anywhere so the blade is not the problem. The problem is the power, or lack of power that the motor gives to the rotation, it's just not enough to allow the blade to cut through polystyrene.
      The plate can be adjusted to cut up to a 45º angle and locks off properly so that it does not slip off anywhere during the cut. With the maximum depth of a cut being about 40mm.
      The handles is nice to grip and there's a second handle/knob that can be used to assert more pressure on the front so that the machine doesn't jump up whilst cutting.

      The drill has two settings and offers a 22 torque setting option, using the ring around the key-less chuck to set the torque, the more delicate the work the lower the torque, so 22 settings is pretty good really. Sadly, as with the saw, this drill just doesn't have what it takes in order to do some serious drilling and screwing.

      You do get two Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries which, as they are Ni-Cd they are not the best when it comes to keeping the power stored in them... these batteries are supposed to be quick charge using the supplied one hour charger but, if like the ones I had, one hour charge has less power than a community police officer in the UK.

      The main tools are not the issue here really as both tools are made as well as any DIYer would expect, if a little heavy with the saw unit. It is the power that the battery fails to offer and the fact that the batteries don't hold the charger for that long, especially when I'm either drilling into something hard or sawing through something that seems to fight back a little.

      To be honest there are not that many cordless power saws that can handle a good days work so I never expected this to be any good at all, which I was right in thinking. But the drill should at least be able to bore more than three holes in a brick wall before falling flat..? I mean, it's alright if you only have to put one bracket up per hour as it can handle 2 or three screw holes, but any more and the battery drains quicker than my bank account on a Friday...

      This set is on sale these days at about £120, which is way too much and I was glad that I did not have to pay for mine.
      This is one drill and saw that are best left on the shelf...

      I must have every possible dog bowl I have seen, it`s somewhat of a vice of mine. I have a closet full of them and keep on buying. And I need it too, my dog is one big gourmand, actually he is more of a trash can, he just puts in his stomach everything he can encounter. Eating a lot he needs a big bowl, coupled with the fact he is a chewer, when he gets bored sometimes he decides to wait the bowl. This is as sturdy as they come, and I bought them in multiple colors, but how he is a blueish color, the orange one really makes him stand out more.
