Shaheen Dog Products

Shaheen is my puppy Jack-a-poo who was born in COVID time. He is a playful little puppy who wants to try everything, making us work with him several hours a day, but very rewarding hours. In the process, we have used so many dog products and got to know what works and what doesn’t. A knowledge we would like to share with other dog owners like ourselves, to help them get the best value for their money, and the best time spent with their dogs.

We have walked the extra mile and leveraged this knowledge into launching our online store “Shaheen Dog Products” that brings the best dog products we have encountered, right to your doorstep, backed up with our experience using them with our puppy Shaheen. Most of our products are for small to medium size dogs. 

Here are two of our best selling items:

  1. 4-in-1 Convertible Dog Seat Covers for Cars Back Seat: Full back seat hammock with mesh window to keep visual connection between driver and pet, full back seat cover, half back seat cover, and front seat cover.
  2. Hands Free Dog Running Leash with Waist Pocket Adjustable Belt Shock Absorbing Bungee

The Red Thread Brewing Co.

Hot Sauce:

Like many of our products, this hot sauce was born out of a mutual love of beer and hot sauce. Made in collaboration with SmokeEater Hot sauces, this unique twist on the traditional uses our own craft beer (Levolution Marzen) and smoked scotch bonnet peppers. Other ingredients include: Apple Cider Vinegar, Sweet Onions, Red Bell Peppers, Carrots, Himalayan Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Brown Cane Sugar.. Small batch, handmade in Ontario we are proud of this unique variation and think it’s the perfect addition to things like wings, pasta, tacos, pizza and grilled meats, due to its smoke-forward flavour. Rated 5 on heat scale of 1-10. $11.99.

Beer Soap:

 

We’ve found yet another way for you to enjoy the great flavours of Red Thread, even without drinking it by partnering with another amazing local business: @kibosoap to create a line of beer soaps so lovely that your partner/spouse will be instantly all over you. These all natural locally made soaps emit and attractive, subtle, scent and are a “must try”. Made in Aurora and made -of course- with our own craft beer.

$5.99 each, 2 for $11 or a 3 pack for $15. Tack one onto your beer order or pick up at any of the upcoming holiday markets, and start smelling great again.
