In keeping with a tradition we started last year, and since shopping for our pets is a holiday highlight, here are some of the cool products we’ve come across in the past year:
The Odin — a durable toy to hide treats in, that also can be connected with another “unit” to make a larger toy.
Snooze Pal — a hammock and box all in one — this is definitely on Tommy’s list!!
No Bowl Feeding System — keep your cat entertained and help control feeding portions with this nifty feeding system that has your cat “hunting” around the house.
KoolCollar 4 Dogs — help keep your dog cool on those hot summer days (we especially like this for those smoosh-faced breeds).
IFetch Interactive Thrower — a must for that dog that refuses to let you stop playing fetch! And, also comes in smaller sizes for those little guys.
Cat & Dog “Wine” — our personal pets have not yet tested this, but a clever idea so your pet can partake in cocktail hour too!
CatAmazing puzzle toy — a cardboard box puzzle toy to keep your kitty entertained.
And, of course, please keep in mind those less fortunate pets out there who are still looking for homes and the wonderful shelters and rescue groups who do so much to help them:
Lucky Dog Animal Rescue — we have a collection box (through New Years) in our lobby if you happen to pick up any extra goodies at the pet store while out shopping for your own pet.
Lab Rescue of Potomac — monetary gifts are always appreciated!
Lu’s Labs — they have a holiday boutique and you can support them through the Combined Federal Campaign.
