When you haven’t yet taught your dog to drink from a water bottle, giving him water while taking a walk is a bit of a chore unless you have a RuffBowl ($8). This portable plastic dog bowl snaps onto your regular FexiLeash and it is easily the most convenient way to keep your pup hydrated as you traverse the treacherous sidewalks of subrbia.
Next time you and Fido are getting some exercise, make sure you don’t throw your arm out with the Hyperdog Ball Launcher ($15 – $30). With 2-ball, 3-ball, and 4-ball editions, this tennis ball launcher flies balls up to 220-feet, giving you some time for a cup of tea in between launches.
If you and Fido are the adventurous type, be prepared for the unthinkable with this Paracord Dog Leash ($40) from SGT Knots. With 16 different colors to choose from, this dog leash stands at 5 feet in length, 8 strands of US made paracord totaling approximately 60 feet of paracord. And if you aren’t a hiker, this dog leash will make you and your pup look like secret MacGyvers on the paved running path.
We are approaching the dead of Winter, so while you are bundling up make sure your best friend is sufficiently warm with the Ruffwear K-9 Overcoat ($64.95). This durable dog coat is water and wind resistant, with a recycled fleece insulating layer enclosed in a durable recycled polyester shell and auto-lock buckles for easy on/off. It should keep Spot warm enough for everything short of the Iditarod.
