I love my dogs, Justice and Tampa, and I admit they have a small closet and two toy boxes filled with dog products just for them. So it wasn’t a hardship for me to attend the 2015 Global Pet Trade Expo, which covered about 13 football fields with more than 900 pet product exhibitors, with the majority selling dog products.
One of the big trends was, “If it’s good enough for me, it’s good enough for my dog.” I picked 12 very human, very new dog products for you to peruse — so new that most of these aren’t even available in stores yet.
1. Buster Activity Map
We probably all played with some type of activity center as a young child. This is one just for our dogs. It features a simple mat and has various tasks attached to it. Each task has a different degree of difficulty. Just put a treat inside each envelope or pocket, and let your dog do the rest. It’s perfect for keeping your dog engaged at home or on the go. Buster Activity Map starter kit costs $69.99, and more tasks are $10 to $15; kruuse.com.
2. Doggy Don Ear Muffs
We don’t have to keep our dogs’ ears out in the cold, because now they’ve got earmuffs, too! The Doggy Don Ear Muffs have an adjustable chinstrap, fit dogs 10 pounds and up, and keeps dogs’ ears warm with faux fur. They cost $17.99 at doggydon.com.
