Hope Saidel is co-owner of Golly Gear, a bricks-and-mortar and online shop featuring fun, affordable and practical small dog products

Papillons are particularly special!

According the AKC Standard for the Papillon, "The Papillon is a small, friendly, elegant toy dog of fine-boned structure, light, dainty and of lively action; distinguished from other breeds by its beautiful butterfly-like ears."

Papillons are famous for their intelligence and trainability - you will often seen these beautiful dogs competing in performance events.

Our shop, Golly Gear, specializes in products especially for small dogs.

Rolled Microfiber Harness is great for soft-furred dogs

The Rolled Microfiber Harness & Leash set is great for dogs with silky-soft fur. The rolled design glides better through coat, and the easy-to-use, adjusts perfectly-every-time design insures a great fit. And for everyone tired of fumbling with awkward plastic clasps, the closure is a simple slider of the same vivid, soft microfiber material.

Wrap-n-Go Harness

The Wrap-n-Go Harness is a cool solution for little dogs who need harnesses. The harness is comfortable and fits like a jacket, with no straps and no rubbing, and it's available in two fabrics, including cool, breathable net! The harness transfers pressure to the chest area so there's no choking risk.

Puppia Soft Harness

The Soft Harness by Puppia is comfy and stylish. The front and collar portion is made of a cushy polyester air mesh that fits broadly across your dog's chest so he can walk comfortably and any pressure from the leash is distributed evenly across his neck and shoulders instead of at his neck! The mesh is edged in super-soft matching or contrasting velour. Available in 5 sizes and 12 colors.

Rope toys by Timberwolf

Little dogs love the Timberwolf Rope Toys! Some of these toys are great for tugging, others are great for fetching, but they're all loads of fun! The ropes are great for flossing their little teeth and at just 3/8 inch in diameter, they're easy for our little dogs to handle. Many have 1 3/4 inch diameter rubber balls that our little dogs can sqeeze, others have fun rubber "gears" that are 1 3/4 inches in diameter. The gears have little nubs that clean teeth and massage gums. These toys are made in the USA.

Active Dog Harness

The Active Dog Harness by Dogo is adorable and a great practical harness for our little dogs!

Adjust the side straps once, and the Active Dog Harness is set for good! Super-easy to put on your small dog, just put the right front paw through the side opening, bring the harness over your little dog's back and snap the clasps. Then attach the leash to the silver-tone D-ring on the back.

When it's a casual jeans day, your little dog can have his own jeans - red or blue denim! There's even a tiny pocket and studs decorating the front!

Clicker Training Kit

Every little dog is happier when he knows what's expected of him! This Dog Training Kit, powered by Clicker Training, gives you the tools to let your pup know what you want him to do. The Dog Training Kit from Karen Pryor includes the i-Click clicker. The i-Click is small and easy to use, and it's quiet enough for indoors.

The Kit also includes the book, Getting Started: Clicker Training for Dogs by Karen Pryor, the clicker training pioneer! Pryor shows you the ins and outs of clicker training, from timing your clicks to teaching cute tricks. This book has step-by-step photographs of many important (and fun) behaviors.

Most fun, the Kit includes the Click-a-Trick cards. In up to ten steps your little dog will learn nine useful and fun behaviors like Leash manners and Gimme five.

      Delighted with my adoption of a 10 year old Papilion male from Muttshack1 It is a totally new experience for me as I have always had huge dogs! Piccolino ia a great companion and just what I need at 80 years young,, He goes to the Barn Where I keep my 2 horses, and helps me with the chores... though is never allowed off eash except at home! Everyone at the Barn loves him and e has is favorite "oracle" Tree that he loves to visit! I am totally happy and look to adopt another >>> It took a while for me to adjust to his minisacle, but it is second nature to me now! He has taught me mant things he did with his former owner, and vas a vocabulary of 2 words ["O-wa, means He has to go out NOW, and "Hawp" mwans he feels he is in an insecure place, like riding in my old VW Beetle the first time. He now loves it, BTW! {Grin}

      Great lens!

      My daughter trains her Papillon to run agility, among other things. It’s a fun sport to do with the dogs!
