A trip to a pet-friendly park with your furry companion is a great way to get outdoors and spend some quality bonding time with your four-legged best friend. But just like there are things to pack when you go on a trip, there are essential products you need to have on hand for your dog. Water, a leash and poop bags are just some of the necessities. Although some parks might be closed due to COVID-19 quarantine, if ones near you have reopened, here are 11 products that provide everything your pup needs for your next pet-friendly outing.
1. The dooloop
The dooloop simply is the easiest, hands-free way to carry dog waste. Attached to your leash, it takes only one hand to loop bags on, putting distance between you and the poo. Manufactured in Maine, the dooloop is made of compostable plastic, using zero-waste packaging. It’s easy for you and easy on the planet. It’s a drag holding the bag, use a dooloop!
2. Wolf Spring Canine Water
