After recognizing the limited options available to price-conscious dog owners for products that were not only affordable, but stylish and durable as well, Nando Vergara set out to create a specialty line of supplies and accessories that catered to the trendy dog-enthusiasts on a budget.
With the help of partner Mitch Klapow, the two put their creative minds together and developed a brand geared to dog owners with a passion for fashion. With a combined 20 years of experience in the pet industry, these guys know what they’re doing. Fueled by their passion, the two brought their vision to life, launching Nandog Pet Gear in 2010. What began as a dream has flourished into a successful brand that is now featured in boutique specialty shops and large retailers across the United States.
Nandog Pet Gear carries a variety of products including retractable leashes, toys, grooming essentials, travel accessories, and home décor, all boasting a high-end look without the designer price tag.
First off, I do not agree with the process or procedure of declawing cats. But I do also understand that there are emergency situations that can arise. Three of my cats or front declawed but they still have their back clause. They are all adoptions. The newest cat is about two years old and he has all his calls and I am not willing to remove them so we train him to use his scratching post and his scratching pad’s. He is extremely intelligent and has not scratched on anything that he is not allowed to. as soon as I laid this down he was already on it and scratching and loving it. He will scratch on it and then look at us waiting for us to tell him that he did a good job. And that is all it takes for him to be happy and is very well trained.
I ordered these to give my cats something to claw on as temporary measure to protect the woodwork in my new house. I have 5 indoor cats and they all love these! They took to them right away and have pretty much stopped trying to claw my doorframes and my stairway.Sometimes I'll even find them napping on them.The catnip was an added bonus to get there attention in the beginning, but they use them all the time now.
I was surprised how fast my 6-month old kitty took to this. She loves it and I may buy it again. But before I do that, I'll have to look around to see if there's anything else that doesn’t get messy this fast. Not sure whether it’s ok for a cat scratcher to do this only after a few weeks, but it produces quite a few of little pieces of cardboard around the scratcher. Then some of that gets in the paws and is tracked around my home. I'll try putting into a plastic container but that's not going to be a good look. At the same time, a litter box isn't a good look either, so maybe they could live next to each other. The most important thing to say here is, it does what it's intended to do. My kitty really likes it and uses it a lot.
I have 7 indoor cats (ages 6 months to 7 1/2 years) and they all love to scratch. The traditional cardboard scratchers all seem to shred rather quickly and there is a mess of cardboard pieces all over the house. I waited to write this review so I could see how long this particular scratcher lasted. Over a month later, it is still in one piece and looks almost new even though it has been used by all of my cats several times a day. I have even seen two of the younger ones using it together.
My babies like to lay on the scratcher when not scratching and the shape is perfect for lounging. When I sprinkle a bit of the catnip on it, they go crazy. I need to order several more so then they will all be content kitties.
Just the right size for my cat
My cat and I are happy
For some reason my cats like to just lay on this. I understand the scratching aspect, which this serves perfectly. But for some reason I don't quite understand my cats like to lounge on these pieces of cardboard for hours. Perhaps its insulation from the ground. In any case, these cardboards have stood up well to frequently scratches and a lot of sitting.
My sofa is safe now!
These are a life saver for my furniture. I have 3 cats and they love these scratchers. One of the best things I’ve ever bought.
My cats love it
I have 4 cats and they are fighting over this. They like to sleep in it. One cat takes it over, and the other cat waits until they get up to snatch it back. All 4 of my cats want to sleep in it. It did it to save my furniture and it is working!
She has been in this box sleeping and scratching all day.
Because I had purchased another scratching toy, I left this one in the plastic with plans to open when the other was over used. However, one of my cats found it and scratched at it until he got it open. Clearly he likes it, and I do too.
Straight away my baby girl started using it brilliant.
It’s a bit small for my cat to lounge around but great otherwise!
5 out of 5
Very good product. High density cardboard means my cat loves to sharpen his claws even more than on other scratching boards. Good value for money.
Need a second one, works well
It is a high quality product and easy to build. My cat loves it so much! Great!
Fantastic product for the price!
I have multiple scratching items and this is the one he scratches most often. I have more than one in the house. I wish it was wider (like our doormat) and that it was sturdier.
Scratching all day and night
