The Dog

Mandi the Dog

There is only one dog in The Buy Guide family, and it’s Ashlee’s dog Mandi. She is a Mini Australian Labradoodle. She has such a sweet temperament and is definitely a pleaser. Everyone loves her.


Here is a big roundup of all Mandi’s favorite things.


– Mandi’s food: This is the food she loves. We feed her 2x a day.

-Daily vitamin: I throw one of these in Mandi’s food everyday. She loves them.

Oral Hygiene chews. Much better than a couple other brands we tried.

-Treats: Mandi loves & are easy to give her : mini bites, jerky treats.

-Yummy snacks: These jerky sticks

These are awesome bully sticks. I’ve tried a few others and they smell SO BAD. These ones have no odor. I wish all dog food could be odorless. Ha

Love this brand of bones. Mandi can stay busy on one of these for a few days. She loves them.



This is Mandi’s dog bed. I love it because it’s machine washable. She loves it because it’s so cozy. Any toddlers that visit our house usually try to make it their bed too 😉

-I love cheap sets of toys like this one. They end up being only $2 each, so when Mandi chews it to pieces after a week, I’m ok with it. We just give her 2-3 toys at a time. Then we rotate or replace them. The trainer taught us to make sure she has her own toys to chew on and play with so she doesn’t use our stuff!

Mandi also loves balls. We are still working on playing fetch. She starts off pretty good…. and then runs away and takes her ball with her to her nest 🙂

I think it’s so adorable when she walks around the house with a stuffed animal. I kind of hope she picks a favorite and gets attached like kids do. But, for now, it seems like she rotates through the 3 we have pretty regularly.

-Mandi sleeps in a crate at night. This is the one we have.



This is the brush we use. We brush her a couple times a week as well as any time she is bathed. Luckily, she’s kind of a diva and actually LIKES it! ha.

This is the shampoo & conditioner we use.

-Her collar and leash are pretty simple. But they’ve worked well for us!



I love this dog food storage container. It’s easy to open and shut, even when you have a scoop of food. Also, I like that it’s see through- I like to easily see when our stock is getting low.

Cutest container for dog treats. Gotta be cute to be on my counter.

    I’d love to know what your favorite brush is for her. We’re getting an Australian Labradoodle in a few weeks and I’m trying to get everything we need. Thank you!!
