Top 10 Cool Finds From SuperZoo 2013 – Part 2
SuperZoo 2013 was a whirlwind of awesome pet products and amazing pet people. We saw so many cool things and we wish we had the time and space to write about the plethora of new pet products that are on their way to stores. But we had to restrain ourselves and limit this wrap up to two top 10 lists. Let’s wrap this up with part 2 of our Top 10 Cool Finds From SuperZoo 2013.
QPG Duck Dynasty Toys: You love the hit A&E series and now your dog will love them just as much. Soft yet durable plush duck ball toys sport beards and hats from the famous Duck Dynasty crew: Jase, Si, Willie, and Phil. Made with goDog’s ChewGuard Technology, these ducks can stand up to tough play! This line of Duck Dynasty Toys will be in stores this September. ( Quakerpetgroup.com)
Chief Furry Officer Cell Phone Cases: We’re big fans of CFO’s stylish line of collars and leashes. And when we saw the uber-cute cell phone cases the company had on display, we squeed ourselves silly. These cases featured adorbs designs, along with a giggle-worthy statement. Two of our faves included “Lab Dance” and “Where did it go?” (with a laser dot focused right on a kitty’s forehead). ( Chieffurryofficer.com)
Doggiedasherie Dog Beds: Dog beds don’t have to be eyesores. Case in point: The George by Doggiedasherie. It’s not just a dog bed – it’s also fashionable furniture. The George fits into any modern décor, thanks to taupe coat, satin chrome legs and Chartreuse Floral fabric. This handcrafted dog bed pulls double duty as an end table and will look great in any room. ( Doggiedasherie.com)
Dublin Dog eco-Lucks Collars: We’re all about looking good and saving the environment. And so is Dublin Dog – that’s why they came up with the eco-Lucks line. Made from 100% post-consumer plastic bottles, these collars also come with extremely strong hardware with a special coating on the D-ring that is completely waterproof. The design we featured is called the Socialite and there are plenty more bold and colorful collars to choose from. ( Dublindog.com)
Chewish Treats: We just couldn’t resist the Chewish Treats booth. It was full of Jewish-inspired dog toys with cute sayings. Our favorite had to be the sheep with “Baa Mitzvah” embroidered into its side. There was also a Kosher cow and a Schmaltz chicken that had us smiling. ( Legacyjudaica.com)
Evercare FurErase: We love our dogs, but hate the wads of fur they can leave behind. That’s why we like the Evercare FurErase Extra Sticky Lint Roller and Brush, a lint roller that combines lint-removal tape with a rubber agitator. This handy two-in-one tool picks up virtually all pet hair and lint from fabric and upholstery. That means no more fur butt on our black pants – woo hoo! ( onecareco.com)
Party Animal Cocolicious Dog Food: You’ve probably heard all about the benefits of eating and cooking with coconut oil. And now your dog can get in on all the coconut oil goodness. Grain-free, natural and organic, Cocolicious is made in small batches and comes in a variety of flavors. Your dog can chow down on chicken, turkey, beef, salmon, pork and lamb recipes that include coconut oil and other tasty ingredients. ( Partyanimalpetfood.com)
PetPaint: It’s time to get creative with PetPaint. This line of dog safe, clinically tested colored furspray, comes in an array of colors, as well as creative Stencil Kits. That means anyone can have fun painting up their dog for any occasion. The Stencil Kits includes Animal Instincts, Hipster Hound, Buddy Prints and Hot Rod Dog. ( Petpaint.com)
West Paw Design Dog Eco Hemp Toy: Dude, hemp is so in right now. And West Paw Design is totally all over the trend. Available in three adorable shapes (dinosaur, scotty dog and elephant) are made from super soft and strong hemp. Another hemp plus: it is naturally antimicrobial, which means it won’t smell. On top of that, your dog won’t get the munchies after chewing on this toy. Watch for them in stores September 1. ( Westpawdesign.com)
PASSport Pet Access System: Now this is one smart doggy door! The PASSport Pet Access Smart System allows pet owners to program up to 20 pets’ access to the outdoors through the LCD screen with a five-button navigation and USB connection to the computer. The door reads the PASSport Key worn on pet’s collar and only allows pets with programmed IDs to enter and exit the home. ( Petsafe.net)
