Whistle GO Explore Health and Location Tracker

Any pet parent’s worst nightmare is to lose sight of their pup and so the Whistle GO Explore Health and Location Tracker will come to their rescue. This tracker can easily be attached to the collar (sold separately) to help the owner keep tabs on their canine friend’s whereabouts as well as their health and activity. Owners can count on pet alerts via text, email, or through the app when their pets leave their set boundaries. They’ll also get notified when if there are changes in their pet’s behavior that might need the vet’s attention. Setting custom goals is even possible, so they can celebrate milestones along the way.

Meidong Pet Sling Carrier

Those with small pooches up to six pounds can now carry them in a pouch completely hands-free with the Meidong Pet Sling Carrier. It is designed to keep pets secure with a special hook that connects to the dog’s collar and breathable for them to stay just as comfortable. And since messes are inevitable with pets, this sling bag is machine washable for an easy clean.

Furbo Dog Camera

With the Furbo Dog Camera, owners won’t be wondering so much about what their furry friend is doing when they’ve got the house to themselves. It features a 1,080-pixel Full HD camera with night vision that would allow owners to monitor their pets on any given time of day. It even has two-way audio that will let them talk to their pup and calm them down when it detects excessive barking. And when they feel like rewarding their dog, it can also toss them a treat.

Highwave AutoDogMug

Just like humans, it is important for dogs to stay hydrated. The Highwave AutoDogMug is both a water bottle and a bowl you can freely use when you’re on the go with your dog. You’ll simply have to squeeze the 20-ounce bottle to fill the attached bowl and any leftover water will just go back in. It also has a convenient carrying strap that allows you to secure it to your backpack.

Outward Hound Interactive Puzzle Game

One way to keep pets entertained and sharp is with this interactive puzzle from Outward Hound. Your dog will surely be kept busy trying to unlock and figure out which of the nine compartments contains the treat you had kept for them. Rest assured, it is a durable dog toy that can withstand quite a bit of abuse considering that your doggo will be stepping on it most of the time. More than being a fun toy, it is designed to teach dogs problem solving as much as it was made to redirect destructive behaviors.

Waterpik PPR-252 Pet Wand Pro

Part of being a responsible pet parent is regularly grooming your dog and this Waterpik PPR-252 Pet Wand Pro will just help you do it like a pro. This way, you can save money from bringing them to the groomers and be efficient about bathing them. It is one versatile tool that can wash dogs of all sizes and breeds too effectively with a comb pattern that can reach even the most sensitive areas. You’ll just have to attach it to a shower pipe, utility sink, or garden hose and adjust the water pressure as you go.

Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Blaster

Instead of tiring out your arm playing fetch with your dog, you can make it fun for yourself too with the Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Blaster. It is much less strain on your back too because you have four tennis balls to fire before you have to crouch down to reload. The best part about it is that you wouldn’t even have to touch the wet ball as you can simply pick them up with its barrel. You can also keep your dog challenged and on their toes since the adjustable power allows you to set the shooting distance up to 50 feet.

KONG Classic Dog Toy

The KONG Classic Dog Toy is a great bet for dogs who absolutely love to chew. It is available in a range of sizes to accommodate dogs of all sizes. You can even opt to stuff it with their favorite treats like peanut butter or kibble. And when you’re away, they can play fetch by themselves as it is unpredictably bouncy.

Plush Paws Hammock Car Seat Cover with Pet Harnesses

Pet hair can certainly trigger those with allergies and so the last thing anyone wants is for it to be all over the car seats. The Plush Paws Car Seat can be installed as a seat liner or a hammock without obstructing access to seatbelts. All you have to do is loop it around the headrests and the grip coating on the back surface assures it stays in place. No matter how much your doggo moves around, this flap’s durability is not to be questioned as it is tear-resistant, waterproof, and machine washable.

K&H Pet Products Elevated Dog Bed

The elevated dog bed from K&H Pet Products is designed to give your dog a place they can chill and cool down. The mesh fabric on the center serves to increase airflow while the nylon outer material is waterproof to boost its durability. It can support medium to large dogs weighing up to 150-pounds and is raised up to keep them off the ground. And since it doesn’t require any tools to assemble, you can pretty much take it anywhere, be it indoors or outdoors.
