The Best Dog Gear of 2017
Everything you and your pal need for the best summer ever
Everything you and your pal need for the best summer ever.
L.L. Bean Pillow Bed ($79)
This 3-by-2.5-foot lounger is plenty big for your dog to stretch out, and the removable polyester cover sheds hair with a spin in the washing machine.
Mountainsmith K9 Pack ($60)
This is the only bag our dogs look comfortable wearing. Spandex in the straps allows for uninhibited movement, and the 24-liter capacity fits food and a few treats for longer hikes.
Buff Dog Reflective ($12)
Yes, a Buff for your dog. The Reflective boosts your pooch’s visibility at night, so you’re both easier to spot during after-work hikes.
Mountain Khakis Canvas Waterproof Bowl ($28)
The ten-ounce waterproof (and puppy-proof) canvas shakes dry, and the bowl unsnaps to store flat when not in use.
BlueWater Ropes Leash ($14)
Long leads are a bad idea—they teach dogs to wander and are easily tangled. Which is why we’re fans of the four-foot leashes made by BlueWater. Upcycled from climbing ropes, they’re durable, good-looking, and just long enough.
Filson Webbing Collar ($50)
We like this no-frills, one-inch-wide collar because of its simplicity. It’s made of coated nylon webbing and comes in attention-grabbing orange.
Carhartt Dog Back-Seat Cover ($100)
Carhartt built this from the same tough-as-nails material used in its jackets. Read: it’ll withstand any number of excited dogs piling in and out of your car at the trailhead. Plus, it’s easily unbuckled and tossed in the trunk when Fido stays home.
Honest Kitchen Nuzzles Treats ($14)
Most dogs are trash compactors that can hit 20 miles per hour when they detect food. And nothing will cause them to run faster than the scent of these all-natural cookies made with duck, cherries, and molasses. Sounds delicious, right?
