1. The Original Pet Pail

This all-in-one travel solution feeder has everything a pet would need on-the-go. Even better, it’s discreet—designed to resemble a stylish lunch box. Available in a variety of colors, The Pet Pail’s outer shell is built tough to withstand extreme conditions. It includes: a waste bag dispenser, removable food and water storage, a pail handle that doubles as a collar, spoon/fork, a shoulder strap that doubles as leash, removable food and water bowls, spill-proof bowl lids, extra-deep bowls for “big eaters,” and a removable lid so the feeder can be used at home.

2. Kurgo Baxter Pack

Great for everyday use or your next backpacking adventure, the Baxter Pack by Kurgo is lightweight, tough and custom fit. It’ll handle even the most rugged outdoor conditions, and has eight different adjustment points to make sure it fits your dog just right. And when doggo’s ready to walk alongside you, the Baxter Pack includes a rear-mounted leash hook that works like a harness and can attach to a lead.

3. Tall Tails Cape Towel

Forget the hassle! Dry your dog with the Tall Tails Cape Towel. After a day of playing outdoors or a tedious bath, your dog won’t want to sit still to dry off. This towel has a collar with a Velcro fastener to wrap around your pet’s neck and is built with two hand pockets for more control when drying. Created with terry fiber material, this towel is 50% more absorbent than cotton. Save yourself time and energy with this efficient product.

4. Pro-Reflective Mesh Harness by Coastal Pet

Sporty and stylish—now there’s no reason to compromise between one for the other. The Pro Mesh Harness’s bright colors are perfect for spending time outdoors, and coordinate with collars and leashes in the Pro line from Coastal Pet. Dogs simply step into the harness, which is made from soft, breathable mesh with a front-connect D-ring, so dogs are led more comfortably by the chest. Your pup won’t be able to get out the door fast enough!

5. Pawscout Smart Pet Tag
