Affens are mischievous monkey-faces!

According to the AKC Standard, "The Affenpinscher is a balanced, wiry-haired terrier-like toy dog whose intelligence and demeanor make it a good house pet. Originating in Germany, the name Affenpinscher means, "monkey-like terrier." In France the breed is described as the "Diablotin Moustachu" or moustached little devil. Both describe the appearance and attitude of this delightful breed. He is described as having a neat but shaggy appearance."

Here at our shop, Golly Gear, we know Affenpinschers, like all toy dogs, are real dogs - with real dog needs. That's why we specialize in products especially suited for small dogs - collars and harnesses that fit, leashes that don't weigh them down, treats that are treats and not entire meals. Our dog-loving staff will be delighted to help you find exactly the right stuff for your beloved Affenpinscher!

Little black dogs get hot - very hot! Keep your pup cool carry a Water Rover. The Water Rover is the most ingenious invention we've seen to carry your little dog's water supply! The cap has a built-in belt clip, so no hands are needed to carry the Water Rover! To fill the Water Rover, just unscrew the wide-mouth cap and fill with water. When your pup needs water, just pull out the stopper and put the Water Rover down. Water flows into the bowl instantly. The flow will stop automatically - the bowl will not overflow!

Treat Stik

The TreatStik is a great way to put the interest back in your pup's mealtimes! Some little dogs need to be persuaded to eat, but many times that's because they're just bored. The TreatStik makes meals a fun game. When you put your dog's kibble in the TreatStik, roll it around on the floor so that a few pieces fall out of the small hole, she'll see how much fun it is to play! She'll get the hang of the TreatStik in no time and be eager for the game!

The Treat Stik is also a great toy. Just put a few pieces of kibble or a couple of treats in the TreatStik and your dog will be chasing it all over the place once he figures out there's good stuff to be had! Journey, the Brussels Griffon, loves his - he knows there's a treat in there!
