Top 100 Pet Trends in 2016

From Lavish Pet Hammock Beds to GPS-Integrated Canine Hats

— January 28, 2017 — Lifestyle
These 2016 pet trends largely speak to the obsession that many consumers have developed in regards to their furry family member's well-being.

Many of these products go far beyond what's actually necessary, with climate-controlled pet houses and high-end canine wines being just a few examples. To find out how other brands are taking excess to the next level, take a peak at our 2017 Trend Report.

Especially noteworthy in these 2016 pet trends is the 'Licki Brush,' a product that allows extreme cat-lovers to adhere a silicon brush to the tongues and pet their cat with it. Although undeniably bizarre, the creators of the Licki Brish claim that it's part of an intimate bonding experience that's sure to bring owners and pets closer.

For those who don't want to keep their pets close by licking them, there's useful products like Link AKC's smart collars, which utilizes GPS and Bluetooth technology to ensure dogs and cats don't get lost if they wander off.
