A Boy & His Dog On a Mission to Change the World
I started Terrible Toby's Dog Supply Depot with one thing in mind... Change.Obviously change is all around us right now... But what I had in mind was change for dogs. Change for dogs that don't have a voice, don't have food in their bowls or toys to chase. Dogs that don't feel the same kind of love as Toby or your pup at home feel everyday. But I can't do it alone, which is where my idea for Terrible Toby's came....How can I make it as easy as possible for ordinary puppies to make extraordinary change for other dogs? I wanted to create the easiest way for someone to support a cause that no dog owner can say no to. That's when I came up with the idea to start a dog store that's sole mission is to end dog abuse & cruelty around the world.

We then curated our list of bakeries, breweries and shops that we enjoyed. We also got in contact withDog Friendly KWand asked them a few questions to see what their favourite dog friendly places were.
Why a Slow Feeder?
Dogs love their food... There's no doubt in my, Toby's or your mind about it! But some dogs (Including the Terrible Toby) might love it a bit too much. While it's perfect for training, it's not so great when it comes to F-O-O-D time. That's why the Slow Feeder was invented. With dogs literally trying to inhale their food, slow feeders were made to prevent this. Why? Let me explain below...

What to Put in a Lickimat? Peanut Butter Alternatives
Toby loves his lickimats! They’re absolutely fantastic for killing energy, keeping him entertained and as a nice reward after a long day. When I fill my lickimats my go to is peanut butter.

Introducing a Rescue Dog into the Family
Hello! My name is Alex and I’m the summer Marketing Assistant for Terrible Tobys. I’ve absolutely been loving the position and one of the tasks that I’ve been doing throughout my term has been coming up with and writing blog posts for our website, some of which you might have already read. One of my ideas was talking about introducing a new dog to the family, specifically introducing a rescue dog into your family and a previous dog. Over quarantine, my family did just that, and who better to interview about this is my mom! I asked her a few questions regarding our family history and her history with dogs, the process of adopting a rescue and things she learned.
