Here are three new dog products that should make you smile.
The holiday season is right around the corner and that means new pet products are hitting the spotlight. Over the next few weeks I’ll highlight some and do reviews of others as we look at cool products aimed at our pets and making our own lives easier as pet parents. First up is the scoop on some dog treats with an unusual twist and the poop on a couple of poo products.
My Dog Ate It
The first of 3 new dog products is a treat with a twist.
You’ve heard the excuses – the dog ate my homework, chewed up my cell phone, chomped on your favorite pair of shoes. How could he eat that stuff? A company has decided to market that and they’ve come up with a humorous line of dog treats called – My Dog Ate It – that smell and taste (or so we think) like the personal stuff our dogs love to destroy.
Instead of beef and gravy flavor, there’s the dog ate my homework, dog butt, mailman’s ankles, cell phone and dog ate my homework. The best part of this fun line is that My Dog Ate It makes a donation to the Humane Society of Skagit County in Burlington, Washington for each package sold. I think dog ate my iPhone cord will be a hit at our house.
Pooh Pee Tracker
Where was the last place your dog did his business? You no longer need to wonder thanks to the Pooh Pee Tracker smart phone app. This super cool new app is a geo-tracker that helps you keep track of where your dog pees and poops and lets you connect with your fellow dog pals via social media.
Along with the Pooh Pee Tracking abilities, there’s a fun photo booth, an online store for cool products and pet tips from Chicago’s very own pet experts at The Anti-Cruelty Society. The app is available for iPhone and Android users. And, five percent of proceeds are donated to The Anti-Cruelty Society.
Doggy Dun It
You can track the poop, now you need a better way to scoop it. I have to admit when I first saw Doggy Dun It, I thought – what’s so difficult about clean up after your dog. If you have just one dog and don’t have any issues bending over to pick up poo…you won’t see the genius in this. However, if you have multiple dogs – four, six, lots – or you just don’t stay on track picking up after fewer dogs, this does the trick.
Doggy Dun It is a one-handed devise that scoops poop into a tie-handled biodegradable bag. When you scoop enough poop that the bag is full, it’s released and tied closed for disposal. Extra bags are carried in an attachable dispenser. I’m looking forward to seeing this one go live on my street. Will it be used by the people who talk incessantly on their cell phones while dog walking that pretend they don't see their dog poop. Maybe then they’ll actually scoop the poop instead of walk away like their dog is poo free.
