29 Outdoor Pet Innovations

From Illuminating Fetch Toys to Personalized Pet Fashions

— May 18, 2017 — Lifestyle
These outdoor pet innovations range from personalized canine fashions to color-changing fetch toys that light up mid-throw. When looking at convenient products that are perfect for the park or trips to the cottage, standouts include treat-dispensing dog toys like Leaps & Bounds' cog ball, along with MosquitoPaQ's insect-deterring pouches which are 100% natural -- making them suitable for both human and animal skin.

Additional notables include collapsible pet bowls that are suitable for use while traveling, as well as paddle-powered water fountains that are portable in their design, and perfect for one's backyard. Social network pet tags and dog activity trackers round off this list, and speak to consumers' growing desire for pet product offerings that are easy to customize.
