Show your dog how much you love her with a recycled cotton blanket, a bridle-leather leash from Filson, and seven other non-essentials.
Orvis Buffalo Check Dog Jacket ($49)
The traditional plaid print and corduroy accents on the polyester Orvis Buffalo Check dog jacket will give your best friend a superiority complex, while the stout fleece will fend off bitter winter winds.
Mammoth Flossy Chews 100 Percent Cotton White 3-Knot Rope ($7)
Fun as heck and good for the gums to boot, the Mammoth Flossy Chews 100 Percent Cotton White 3-Knot rope cleans dogs’ teeth as they play fetch and tug-of-war.
California Collar Co. Thunderbird Blanket ($34)
Suitable for the couch, camping, and the car, California Collar Co.’s super-soft Thunderbird blanket is crafted in Mexico from recycled acrylic, cotton, and polyester.
Toad&Co Eco Dog Bed ($85)
Though made with scraps from apparel brand Toad&Co’s cutting-room floor, the Eco dog bed hardly looks or feels like leftovers. With an organiccotton cover in a muted two-tone design, it’s worthy of a prime spot in the living room.
Woof and Wild Spirit Bandana ($19 and up)
If you’re gonna outfit your dog with a kerchief, best to go bold. Woof and Wild’s 100 percent cotton Spirit bandana comes in wild prints, from skulls to eagle feathers to horseshoes.
Nite Ize SpotLit LED Carabiner Light ($7)
Handy for keeping track of your pooch around the campfire, Nite Ize’s SpotLit LED Carabiner light is also useful for marking tent guy lines, so you don’t trip during pee runs.
Lupine Pet Adjustable Collar ($9 and up)
Nylon webbing on the Lupine Pet Adjustable collar dries quickly after a romp through a stream. But that webbing is also climbing grade, so it and the steel D-rings will hold up to endless tugging.
Magisso Slow-Eating Dog Bowl ($39 and up)
Known for its insulating properties, the ceramic in the Magisso Slow-Eating dog bowl stays chilly for up to six hours after soaking in cold water for only a minute. That means bacteria-quashing icy water for the pup.
Filson Dog Leash ($85)
Filson’s five-foot-long dog leash has brass-plated hardware and one-inch-wide bridle leather that will age beautifully.
