Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida. It’s the pet industry’s largest annual trade show, where the coolest pet products are introduced and showcased.
My goal? To find the pawsomest products to share with you all! So, we packed up our bags, loaded the car and headed North to Orlando!
After a full day of strollin’ (literally, in a stroller) around the show, I have narrowed down my top 8 Pet Products that I saw at the show, as well as some honorable mentions.
Check it out, below!
Top 8 Pet Products at Global Pet Expo
Pet Gear makes top-of-the-line pet strollers that everyone will envy…I mean, just look at mine. It’s the NV No-Zip Stroller. No zipper means no hassles when trying to open and close the stroller (great for clumsy humans😆). It features an elevated paw rest, where your pet can easily look out of the stroller by using the front bar for support (ahem, as seen above – haha). It also has a plush bolster pad, air tires for a smoother ride, and stylish colors and embroidery.
10/10 I recommend the Pet Gear strollers.
I live in Miami. Miami = hot and sunny days year-round. I never thought about it before running into this booth but, maybe I should be protecting myself against the Miami sun?
My Dog Nose It products were created to keep your best friend safe from the environment they love to play and be in! Completely natural and water resistant, this paraben free sun protector is safe to use on any Fido or Fifi. It also soothes and adds moisture to any exposed area as it combats those pesky UV rays!
Lather it up, baby!
Eco-Friendly meets fashion with The Green Pet Shop’s Pooie Vuitton poop bags. Designed using an all-natural Cornstarch base (rather than plastic), you and your pet are doing your part to reduce the carbon paw-prints on earth. Plus, with that Louis Vuitton pattern-look-alike, taking a poo has never been more fashionable.
The Pooie V bags have a thickness of 18 microns which is significantly stronger and thicker than most pet waste bags available on the market; they have a really nice feel to them.
P.L.A.Y just launched these adorable school-themed plush toys and I’m obsessing over them! The Back to School Plush Toy Collection includes a Calculator, Football, Artist Palette, Beakers, and Graduation Cap and Scroll. I’ve written before about how much I LOVE the P.L.A.Y plush toys because they crinkle, squeak and last an eternity. This new set even features new, cool glow-in-the-dark features! Whether your pup is an athlete, a science nerd or is begging to let out their inner Picasso, this set has a toy for every canine scholar, just like me!
If you love these toys and decide to head over to the P.L.A.Y website to buy them, make sure you use code “HAMI” at checkout to get 20% off your purchase!
Now that’s better than getting straight A’s!
Are you sick and tired of buying your long-bodied pooch clothing that doesn’t fit them right? Queue the Long Dog Body Clothing!
Featuring distinct armhole placements, longer backs, a broader chest area, and a unique “dewlap” neck piece, the Long Dog Clothing Company makes the best fitting clothes for your pooch. Just look how good I look in my hoodie.
So happy I finally found dog clothing that fits me pawfectly!
The AutoDogMug® is the first and only, one-handed hydration system for dogs. Both my human and I thought this product was genius and have since used ours about a million and one times. Not kidding.
You squeeze the bottle and water fills the bowl for your pup to drink, then, release the bottle and the remaining water returns to the bottle.
If you travel with your dog or visit outdoor spaces, this is an absolute must-purchase.
Last but certainly not least on my round up of Pet Products is this Mohawk costume from my pals over at Rubie’s Pet Shop Costumes.
It’s not necessarily a practical item but damn, I look like a bad-ass wearing it. 😃 Had to add it to the top 8 products because I looked so cool in it.
Below are two products that I absolutely fell in love with at the show. The only reason they did not make the Top 8 List is because these products are so new, they haven’t even launched yet!
London based, Charlie and Co Naturals make 100% natural dog shampoo. It has no soap, parabens, synthetic dyes, sulphates, formaldehyde or gluten and is made of nothing but plant-derived ingredients like: coconut, oats, seaweed, etc. It is such a gentle way to keep your pooch coat healthy and shiny…plus, it smells so good!
Prefer Pets are known for their thoughtfully designed, stylish small pet carriers for owners and pets that are on the move. The backpack pictured above is so new, it is the only one of its kind; and I was actually the first dog to ever test it out. Both my human and I fell in love!! (we are going to ask Santa to bring us one this year!)
This convertible carrier gives you the portability of a duffel with the comfort and convenience of a backpack; it can sit up-right, the way you see it here on my humans back or, you can lay it perpendicular so it fits perfectly under the seat of an airplane.
So cool, huh? (sSanta, if you are reading this….you know my address!)
