What a week we had at our first Global Pet Expo. We met so many awesome people and got a behind-the-scenes look at some cool dog products that we can’t wait to tell you about.

Because there was so much to see and do, PetGuide.com will be showcasing these dog products in a series of categories. Right now, we’re going to introduce you to a few items that will make you feel good. These products range from helping dogs in need to being eco-friendly.

Sergeant’s Embark on Pet Health: With Tiffani Thiessen as its spokesperson, this campaign asks pet parents to watch their dog’s health needs at www.embarkonpethealth.com. When you pledge to watch your dog’s health on the site, a donation of a Sergeant’s Pet Health Kit is sent to the American Humane Association.

Freehand Dog Food: When you buy Freehand Dog Food, you’ll be lending a hand to a dog in need. With each purchase of its dog food, the company donates its dog food of an equal amount to a local rescue organization or shelter.

Dog For Dog Dogsbutter: Not only is it a tasty treat for your pooch, but Dog for Dog matches every purchase you make. Let’s say you buy a jar of Dogsbutter for your dog – Dog for Dog will donate the exact same product to a local rescue organization.

Earth Rated Poop Bags: This product has been on the market for about a year, but we still love that these bags are biodegradable and smell like lavender (and its name has Poop in in – that makes us laugh). Plus, the bags are extra-long, so you never have to worry about the poop making contact with your sleeve.

Planet Dog Wood Chuck® with Orbee-Tuff® RecycleBALL: Playing catch is much more fun when it’s eco-friendly. The throwing stick is made with sustainable bamboo and reused cork scraps, while the Orbee-Tuff RecycleBall is 100% recyclable and is made from post-production material that would otherwise be discarded.

The Good Dog Hemp Harness: Dude, you have to love this soft harness that’s made from hemp. This natural fiber is soft, durable, hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial.

Of course, these weren’t the only feel good dog products at Global Pet Expo. We’ll be covering many more in the time to come.
