Best Dog Products for 2019: Dog Crates
A dog crate will be an essential purchase if you’re getting a new puppy.
Crate training is an important early skill to teach your puppy.
Keeping your puppy in his crate will prevent him from chewing your furniture or stealing food when you’re not around to keep an eye on him.
Pups that have been recently neutered or spayed benefit from being crated to prevent them from jumping around, potentially bursting their stitches.
All dogs, including puppies, like to have a space or den where they can take a nap.
Dog crates are typically boxes made from wire, fabric, stainless steel or plastic.
A plastic pan is placed inside the crate for the dog to lay on. You should add a comfy dog bed to keep your pup cozy and warm.
Some dog crates are for home use, whereas others are portable and designed for travel.
The MidWest Homes for Pets Dog Crate is an Amazon best-seller.
The double-door dog crate features safe and secure slide-bolt catches; rounded corners; a removable, washable plastic pan for easy cleaning; and a smart, durable black Electro-Coat finish.
The crate easily folds down for portability and has plastic carrying handles for comfortable moving.
A free divider is included, so you can make the crate smaller for a puppy, increasing the size as your pup grows.
The iCrate comes with a one-year warranty too.
The AmazonBasics Single Door & Double Door Folding Metal Dog Crate has double-doors, allowing a convenient side and front entry.
Both doors are secured with two slide-bolt latches for increased security and safety.
The sturdy dog crate can be folded flat for easy portability and storage.
There’s an optional divider panel and a removable composite plastic pan included.
This own-brand dog crate comes in a slightly lower price point than the MidWest Homes one but is of decent quality and represents great value for money.
Best Dog Products for 2019: Dog Beds
Your dog or puppy will appreciate a cozy dog bed.
Dog beds come in many different styles.
Each dog’s preferences will be slightly different, which will influence the dog bed size you buy for your pup.
If the bed is too small, the filling inside the bed will get squashed flat, leaving your dog vulnerable to developing pressure sores.
On the other hand, if you buy a dog bed that’s too big, it could be drafty, leaving your poor dog shivering on chilly nights.
When choosing a dog bed, consider your dog’s sleeping preferences.
Some pups enjoy curling up against the sides of the bed for warmth and comfort, whereas others prefer to stretch out flat, spilling out of their bed with legs akimbo.
The Friends Forever Premium Orthopedic Dog Bed is perfect for elderly dogs and pups with joint problems.
The bed has a bolster for hip and neck support, and is designed to keep cold drafts out.
A super-thick, poly-fill orthopedic mattress eases aching joints and prevents pressure sores.
The liner is water resistant in case of accidents. The washable cover is easily removed via a zipper fastening.
Christmas is a great time to treat your pooch to the fancy bed of his dreams.
If you want a luxury bed for your pup that will complement your home décor too, check out the KOPEKS – Orthopedic Memory Foam Dog Bed with Pillow and Waterproof Liner.
This dog bed is made from medical-grade orthopedic memory foam, has a waterproof liner, and is covered with a stylish plush suede cover and an anti-slip base.
Best Dog Products for 2019: Collars
These days, more and more dog owners prefer to use a dog harness for exercise.
Harnesses avoid health risks to feisty pups who pull on the leash during exercise.
But a collar bearing your dog’s details is still legally required.
We’ve picked out a few options for the smart dog about town. Don’t forget to buy a tag that shows your contact information in case he gets lost.
Remember that it’s a legal requirement for all dogs in the U.K. to be microchipped too.
When fitting your dog’s collar, make sure it’s not so tight that your pup can’t breathe properly.
The collar shouldn’t be too loose either or it could become caught on low-hanging branches, presenting a potential danger of strangulation.
Fit the collar so that you can slide two fingers-width comfortably between the collar and your dog’s neck.
The Custom Catch Personalized Dog Collar is a beautiful leather collar that comes in a wide variety of trendy colors, including pink, blue, yellow, red and green.
The soft leather is engraved with your pet’s name, your phone number and any other text of your choice.
You can also choose from different text styles such as funky bone, paw or heart motif.
The collars come in a range of sizes. The stainless steel buckle is built to last.
For your patriotic pup, you might want to choose the American Flag Dog Collar.
This novelty design collar is made by a U.S.-based company from durable, sturdy polyester webbing.
The collar has a safety quick-release plastic fastening and a reflective logo to keep your dog visible during nighttime walks.
The American flag collar comes in a variety of sizes from teacup pups right up to 140 lb heavyweights.
Best Dog Products for 2019: Dog Bowls
Every dog needs a sturdy, durable water and food bowl.
For your pet’s health, it’s best to have a clean, undamaged dog bowl.
If your dog’s dish is looking a little worn from being dragged around, a replacement is recommended.
Dog bowls that have cracks or scratches inside can provide the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and germs that could harm your pet’s health.
The Neater Feeder Deluxe mess-proof elevated bowl system is a smart, non-slip, non-tip double-dish feeding station.
The two bowls are made from high-quality, durable stainless steel.
The stand is designed to be kick-proof and spill-proof. Food stays on the top of the stand, and spilled water drains below.
The feeder comes in several different sizes for all breeds. There are several subtle shades to choose from.
The elevated feeding position and contoured design is better for your pet’s digestion and for senior dogs’ joints.
If you prefer a ceramic dog bowl, you’ll love the Bone Dry DII Lattice Ceramic Pet Bowl.
The set of two bowls comes in three sizes.
There are several colors to choose from, including aqua blue, navy and pale gray.
You can choose from a smart lattice design or traditional stripes, both with a cool paw print motif.
The porcelain ceramic material is dishwasher-safe, making it easy to keep your pet’s dishes free from germs and bacteria.
Each bowl is fitted with a silicone ring to prevent slipping and flipping.
