2019 was the year of the dog and dog products! According to the American Pet Product Association, households that own dogs increased from 60 million in 2018 to 64 million in 2019. Total spend also increased on pets from 72 billion dollars in 2018 to 75 billion dollars in 2019. With dogs becoming more and more a part of our everyday lives, we thought it would be great to talk about some of the best dog products of 2019.
We have comprised this list based on customer reviews, personal use of products and innovation of products. This list is not sponsored by any of the below mentioned products and we are sure we missed a lot of other awesome products out there!
Cuddle Clone is one the hottest items in the dog gift world. The company creates a clone of your dog into various products such as full stuffed replicas, replica slippers, mugs and much more. The process is very simple, you upload a photo of your pup, identify a few distinguishing characteristics and that's it! With thousands upon thousands of happy customers, the Cuddle Clone makes a great unique gift for any season.
Gone are the days of leaving your furbaby alone for hours and hours on end! The Furbo Dog Camera now allows owners to interact with pets via a 1080p camera and mobile app. This fun dog camera also includes features like 2-way audio, treat tossing, and barking alert. This is a great way to keep an eye on those dogs who are little trouble makers or have anxiety.
This list wouldn't be complete without a K9 Sport Sack! The all new K9 Sport Sack Rover has been the hottest selling item in our line-up. With the ability to hold up to 80lbs, the Rover is the first and only dog carrier of its kind. Big dog owners all over the world are now able to transport their pets like never before. With features like an internal frame, hip belt, water storage and much more, this carrier is the most versatile we have created yet. The bag can also be easily converted to a hiking backpack when not in use for your dog!
Who would have thought that 2019 would be the year we could start throwing our rugs in the washing machine?? Ruggable completely revolutionized the rug industry for pets and home owners alike. Gone are the days where your rug is permanently stained/ruined by the furry love of your life. The rugs come with a lightweight rug cover and a non-slip pad underneath. Ruggable offers all sorts of unique sizes, colors, and designs. Dog owners all over the world are switching the old heavy bulky rugs out for rugs by Ruggable.
Could there be anything possibly cuter than a dog in goggles? Other than a dog in a K9 Sport Sack, we don't think so! Besides the dog looking cute, there are a lot of great benefits that make Rex Specs one of our picks for 2019 best products. These dog goggles offer protection from the sun, wind, and other elements to keep your dog's eyes safe. Rex Specs also feature breathable mesh, sizes ranging from extra-small to extra-large and fully adjustable to fit straps. Rex Specs are a great product for those that are super active with their dogs.
Wilder Dog has become a huge presence in the dog space over the last few years. They are well known for their unique products and downright cute dog content. The Wilder Dog Sleeping Bag is one of those products that has impressed us here at K9. If anyone has ever been in a tent with a dog, you know they always end up on/in your sleeping pad and sleeping bag. This bag from Wilder Dog is a great solution for those dogs that love to hog all the covers. The product features a very solid ripstop nylon and packs down small for all of your adventures!
Most dog owners would say that home is where dog hair sticks to everything but the dog. The creators of the ChomChom Pet Hair Remover have set out to keep dog hair on dogs! The ChomChom is very easy and simple to use. By moving the ChomChom Roller back and forth, an electrostatic charge is created that attracts the hairs to the roller. Once you have collected all of your hair, you simply open the compartment and throw away the hair. The customers on Amazon have reviewed the roller over 8,000 times with an average rating of 4.7/5. All this researched has led us to give it a spot on our top products for 2019!
According to PetMD, dogs should drink approximately one ounce of water per pound of body weight each day. The AutoDogMug by Highwave is the perfect way to keep your pup fully hydrated during your adventures. What makes these bottles so awesome you may ask? The bottle features technology that allows the pet owner to simply squeeze the bottle filling the lid bowl for the pet to drink. We have found this very easy to use and a great way to keep your dog fully hydrated!
Skout's Honor has become one of the most well known names in pet grooming over the last couple of years. They are most well known for their use of all-natural ingredients in each of their product lines. The Probiotic Pet Shampoo and Conditioner has become one of our favorite grooming products which we personally use on our pets here at K9 Sport Sack. Skout's Honor states the following about their grooming products, "Our revolutionary, probiotic dog shampoos and grooming products are designed to support your pet's natural defenses against shedding, itching, dryness, hot spots and odor - for a naturally-balanced and healthier-looking skin and coat." We have not found a pet shampoo and conditioner we or our pets have loved more!
With over 12,000 reviews on Amazon, the Kong Extreme Dog Toy is one of the best reviewed chew toys for dogs. The Kong comes in five sizes ranging from small to double extra-large. It can be used for a fun game of fetch (these rubber toys bounce really well so they are extremely fun for dogs to fetch), a great stuff toy, or just something your dog can chew on. Our customer service representative has two labs and has had her Kong toy for 6 years now! One comment we saw as we researched this toy was to be careful from whom you buy your Kong Toy. There are a lot of knockoffs out there that won't last.
