There are other brands that I like as well, but find extremely overpriced so I do not purchase them.
No matter the product, quality and durability comes first and foremost for me, but price is also a factor.
If I know the item is well made and is going to last a long time then I don't mind spending a good amount
on it, but I won't pay 1 cent for something that is simply "cute" and nothing more. Everything I buy serves
a purpose, I do not buy things for decoration. If the item is in fact adorable then it is a bonus, but not the
reason I bought it.
You know I've had dogs for many years, and have been rescuing for 10, I have tried it all,
the brands mentioned above are my absolute favorites, they have been tested by dogs
and cats of all sizes, breeds and ages, and are worth every penny imo.
Hope that helps!
