Supplies and Accessories

No matter what age, size and disposition, we've got the things your dog will need to be safe, happy, healthy and fun.  In fact, we're always searching for new products that will help both you and your dog.

Leashes

  • Traditional belt-style
  • Halter
  • Harness
  • Choke-chain

Treats

Puppies and grown dogs alike love to chew.  Many "discount store" dog treats contain dangerous chemicals that can affect your dog's health.  At mini-critters, we stick with healthy chews that are safe for your dog, and often last longer!  Pick one that fits your dog's size and strength level...in other words, the bigger the dog, the bigger the treat, and vice-versa.

Toys

Dogs love to play and we have the toys they love.  We have rubber toys that are strong enough to chew and play rough or to play interactively.  We especially like the KONG toys that are hollow and you can put a treat inside and keep your dog busy for a long time.

  • Rubber toys
  • Rope toys
  • Vinyl toys
  • Plush toys

Coats and Weather Gear

Some breeds don't do well in our cold northern weather, so mini-critters carries a wide selection of coats and boots and just about any kind of clothing your dog could need.

Kennels and Travel Carriers

We have many types of dog kennels in various sizes, including wire cages, plastic travel crates and fold-up models.  Each has advantages and disadvantages.  Ask us and we'll help you pick out the right one for your dog.

Beds

Many dogs end up sleeping at the foot, or on the bed of their masters...or adopting a favorite chair or spot on the couch.  Sometimes you just need a little extra space...and your dog deserves a place it can call it's own.  We've got the perfect bed, no matter if your dog is as small as a mouse or as big as a house!
