Eight “Must-Have” Pet Products for Pet Lovers From SuperZoo 2016
In early August, I had the pleasure of attending the annual pet show SuperZoo in Las Vegas. For a pet fanatic like myself, walking through the convention hall was like Liz Lemon stumbling upon a free sandwich: pure joy.
After spending a few days at the show, I put together my eight must-have gadgets/products for my fellow pet lovers out there. Check it out:
Similar to the T-Rex in Jurassic Park, your cat doesn't want to be fed… it wants to hunt. The NoBowl Feeding System dispenses dry cat food in a way that satisfies their desire to hunt and play. The more they play with the mouse-shaped container, the more food they will get. Maybe now my cat will finally stop meowing at 3 a.m. #wishfulthinking
High-five for a toy that isn’t destroyed within five minutes of handing it to your dog! The Tuggo Water-Weighted Toy is an indestructible weighted ball toy that uses water sounds and weight resistance to keep your dogs engaged way longer than your typical squeaky toy would.
If you’re going to scoop poop, you might as well be looking at NEON Litter. ‘Nuff said.
This company is the Mother Teresa of pet stain removers. Founded by animal-loving surfers, Skout’s HonorTM products are nontoxic, biodegradable, eco-friendly and free of harsh chemicals. To top it off, the company provides a day’s worth of food to an animal in need with every purchase.
If you love taking your pet on outdoor adventures, then you’ve got to get some RuffWear®. This Oregon-based design company offers everything from life jackets and high-performance dog boots to hydration packs so you always have the right gear for your dog’s epic explorations.
Durable, stackable and cozy, Kitty Kasa Bedroom Cubes are refreshingly stylish compared to the traditional dull carpet hidey-holes. These are ideal for multi-cat households, plus all profits go directly to the ARNI Foundation, a 501(C)3, nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter located in Daytona Beach, Florida. Bonus!
Protect your pooch from harmful sun rays with My Dog Nose It! sun balm. Nontoxic, made in the USA and great for all breeds and lifestyles, My Dog Nose It! lets your dog enjoy outdoor fun without the worry of sun damage.
Launched at SuperZoo, The Good Bowl is an innovative take on a typical pet food bowl. Instead of the mealtime mess that results from traditional bowls, The Good Bowl is an all-in-one mat that suctions to any flat surface. The mat is made from 100 percent food-grade silicone that is BPA-, BPS-, PVC- and phthalate-free, and the two stainless steel bowls make for an easy cleanup.
