If you are looking for something a little swankier than that ratty old leash you have had for years, try out one of these directly from a Socttish luxury brand. Handmade with Scottish tweed, this is the kind of accessory every well-dressed dog needs. Don’t take it on a hike; this is for doggy date strolls.

Be honest, we bet one time in your life you have said, ‘I wish I could just check in with Fido to see what he is up to while I’m at work.’ Well now you can. Simply mount PetChatz where your dog can see it, connect to Wifi, download the app and fill the unit with treats. Now you can call your pup any time and check in and they get a treat while hearing about how hungover you are at the office.

Ruffwear Summit Trex Boots

If you have an active dog that enjoys a good hike but sometimes has issues on those slippery rocks, try these booties. They may sound weird but we have first hand experience. They work and after you dog walks like an octopus for a minute, it will get the hang of them and be bounding across trails in no time.

Nite Ize Nite Dawg LED Light-Up Collar

With daylight saying so long for the season, it’s hard to keep track of our dogs in the evening hours (especially if they are darker colored) and it can be difficult for bikers, pedestrians and others to see them too. That is why we are big fans of this light up dog collar. We can spot our dogs across the park in their little raved out collars. If you really want to get the dog park poppin’, turn it on ‘blink’ and turn up the techno.
