Product Review: Gulpy Water Dispenser

Since dogs don’t have an efficient cooling system they require plenty of water when out on a hike, walk, or run during warm weather, in order to avoid overheating.  However, carrying water for your dog can be difficult and cumbersome.  Here, the Gulpy Water Dispenser will be reviewed. The Gulpy Water Dispenser is a 2-in-1 water bottle and water dish for your pet.  It is easy and convenient to use, and has a belt clip that allows for the bottle to be easily attached to a pocket or belt loop.  The bowl component folds against the water bottle, which minimizes the amount of space this product requires.  Simply unscrew the lid (which is attached to the bowl), fill the bottle, and go.  To use the Gulpy, unfold the bowl from the bottle, squeeze the bottle to fill the bowl, and encourage your dog to drink.  The Gulpy’s bowl can even...

Product Review: You & Me Portable Canvas Crate

When traveling by car, a crate is the safest option for your pet.  However, hard-sided crates do not always conveniently fit inside vehicles, and can be difficult to transport.  A soft-sided crate, such as the You & Me Portable Canvas Crate, can make life easier. The You & Me Portable Canvas Crate is available in 3 sizes:  small (24’’), medium (30’’), and large (36’’).  The small crate is the perfect size for a 30 lb dog.  The crate is collapsible and has a carrying case, which makes travel especially convenient.  Three sides of the crate have zippered openings, including the top, which allows for your dog’s unique needs to be met.  A large pocket on the crate’s exterior is perfect for holding vet records, a leash, a water bottle, or other items.  In addition, the crate walls are partialy made of mesh, which provide breathability as well as visibility for...

Product Review: KONG Comfort Control Grip Harness

In a previous post the Harness Lead, a no-pull harness that places pressure behind a dog’s shoulders when he or she pulls on the leash, was reviewed.  While this harness is great for every-day use, there are certain instances when it is not appropriate, such as travel and when your dog joins you for a run.  For these situations, the KONG Comfort Control Grip Harness is preferred, which will be described here. The KONG Comfort Control Grip Harness is a harness that loops around the dog’s neck and has two attachment buckles around the dog’s chest, behind the front legs.  There is also a padded handle affixed to the top of the harness that runs along the dog’s back for extra control.  The harness is fully adjustable, and a medium-sized harness can be made to fit a dog with a 20’’ – 30’’ chest.  The harness material is high-quality woven...

Product Review: Soggy Doggy Super Shammy

Do you struggle to dry your dog’s paws after a morning walk?  Is drying your pet after a bath both time-consuming and difficult?  Are you tired of muddy paws on your furniture?  We experienced these issues with our dogs, which led to purchasing the Soggy Doggy Super Shammy.  Here, the Soggy Doggy Super Shammy will be reviewed. The Soggy Doggy Super Shammy is a large (31’’ x 14’’) microfiber towel.  Covering the towel are additional microfiber nodules that increase the shammy surface area, resulting in extra water absorbance.  In fact, the manufacturer claims this towel can hold up to 7 times its weight in water.  This towel is great for wiping off muddy paws, since dirt and debris cling to microfiber more readily.  Additionally, the towel has hand pockets that improve your dog drying ability.  The Soggy Doggy Super Shammy is washer and dryer safe, adding to its convenience. This...
