Adopt, then SHOP!

By Julie Kertes

If you’re looking to add a furry friend to your family, here are some pet product essentials that will make your new pal feel welcome and loved!

Drink Up

Keeping your pet hydrated on road trips and hikes has never been easier with the Travel Water Bottle and Bowl by Messy Mutts (, $19.99). The silicone bowl, which is attached to the stainless steel bottle, easily unfolds for an instant drink. Unused water drains back into the bottle, so no water is ever wasted.

Rest Easy

Traveling can be stressful for humans so just imagine what it’s like for pets! The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed (, $189.99) gives smaller pets the comfort and familiarity of home while on the road. This crash test carrier received a perfect 5-star safety rating from the Center for Pet Safety, assuring pet parents safe travels!

Oh là là

Le Bol by Loving Pets (, $9.59 to $13.96) is a line of durable stainless steel bowls with a ceramic-like interior, much like the admired French gourmet cookware. Comes in a variety of bright interior colors and the rubber base prevents bowls from sliding. They’re top-rack dishwasher safe, so cleaning is a breeze.

Fashionista in Training

Bentley Training Bag by A Pet with Paws (, $49.99) not only looks great, but also is 100% functional for pups-in-training. There are separate sections for all your training accouterments, plus a safe, zippered compartment for keys, cash and cellphone. Wear it as a fanny pack or adjust the strap for a cross-body look. The Bentley is eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty free and the polyester fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Hide and Seek

Felines of all ages will love Hot Pursuit by SmartyKat (, $16.99), an electronic toy that replicates the movements of hidden prey. The moving lights feature is unpredictable so it keeps them interested and entertained for a long time. A “must-have” to satisfy hunting instincts and help expend extra kitty energy!


Petsies Huggables (, $149) are worth the splurge and are not so much for the pet, but for the people who love them! Using soft, polyester furs and airbrushing, the folks at Petsies create beautiful custom plushies that look just like your furry friend, paying attention to the tiniest details.
