Summer 2020 is one for the books, to say the least. But that’s all we’ll say about certain current affairs that have canceled so many summer plans. Instead, we’re here to recommend some delightful distractions that will provide oodles of fun for you and your canine compadre. Let’s dig into the best dog products of summer 2020, including everything from the tasty and the fashionable to the weird and the wacky.
Indoor digging toy
An indoor digging toy protects your beautifully landscaped lawn from your dog’s favorite destructive pastime. (And provides hours of entertainment for your fur-baby!) This nifty invention lets you hide a treat or toy underneath several layers of fabric. Diego can dig to their heart’s content in search of their treasure, making this a “grrreat” way to tire out their mind and body on rainy days.
Red gingham summer neckwear
Four-legged fashionistas are sure to fall head over paws in love with this chic bandana from the MODERNBEAST summer collection. Made with 100% cotton, this fitted bandana will turn heads — both human and canine — while you’re out and about on your walks. The best part? All of MODERNBEAST’s profits go to animal charities. You can feel good knowing that you and your pup are lending a helping paw to pets in need. (And looking pretty doggone cute while doing it!)
Camper dog bed
Maybe you had to reschedule that summer camping trip due to the dreaded “p” word. Why not bring the adventure right to your living room with an oh-so-adorable dog bed styled like an RV? You’ll find all sorts of “mini campers” out there complete with their own set of wheels and even spaces for water and food bowls. Nab a camper bed that’s suitable for outdoor use and treat your pal to a little extra shade on your backyard adventures.
A PupJoy subscription box
What better way to pamper your pupper this summer than with a box full of goodies? Organic dog treats, interactive toys, stylish accessories, luxe bedding — you name it, PupJoy’s got it. With nylon hot dog toys and plush versions of your favorite canned adult beverages, PupJoy’s summer collection is bound to be a hit with your hound. Sign up to their subscription service to receive a new collection of toys, treats, and accessories specially curated for your dog every month.
Dual dog exercise treadmill
A stationary bike and a dog-sized treadmill all rolled up into one truly unique piece of equipment, the dual dog exercise treadmill ensures you and your fur-baby will never miss another workout. (Look, we know this one is the very definition of bougie. But if you’re ready to drop some serious cash and get fit with Flash this summer, this is one investment you won’t regret.)
Okay, so maybe you don’t have a ton of cash to spend on spoiling Spot. Totally understandable. Besides, as the old saying goes, the best things in life are free — or, in this case, dirt cheap. All you need is a kiddie pool from the dollar store and a few gallons of water to spark summertime joy. Once you’ve filled up the pool, relax in a lawn chair, soak your feet, and watch your woofer go dog wild.
Organic CBD dog treats
Here’s a not-so-fun fact: experts predict that our dogs will suffer from separation anxiety when we return to work full-time. The good news is, CBD dog treats might be able to help with that. Cannanine’s organic CBD dog treats are 100% free of THC and pesticides — everything you want in a top-quality CBD dog treat. The bacon-flavored soft chews are sure to have your pup begging for more!
LED dog collar
Last but certainly not least on our list of pet products for summer 2020 is the LED dog collar. Add an extra element of safety to your nighttime strolls with this light-up collar. You’ll find all sorts of LED dog collars at big-box pet stores and online retailers. Most of them are USB-rechargeable, and some are even visible up to 1,000 feet away.
The best pet products for pet parents this summer: wrapping up
You and Max might not get the chance to complete your summer bucket list this year. But you can still have tons of fun together at home. So what are you waiting “fur”? Treat Tucker to a new toy (or two!) this summer, and don’t forget to share your snaps with us on Instagram. Tag #wagwalking and we just might share your four-legged social media influencer on our feed!
