The Perfect Products for Getting Fit with Fido
Since 2019 has just arrived, many pet parents may have New Year’s resolutions and fitness goals on their minds. Pet retailers can offer fun and useful products that make including dogs in workouts easy and fun.
For pet parents looking to get into shape through long walks or hiking, there are multiple products that can help them include their pups on their adventures. EzyDog’s Summit Backpack can be worn by dogs during hikes and be used to contain water, small belongings and treats. One of those treats could be Zuke’s PowerBone, which is formulated to keep dogs energized during hikes.
Multiple pet companies also offer water bottles that can be used by both humans and dogs while in the outdoors. Outward Hound has a 2-in-1 Water Bottle & Bowl that has a detachable plastic sleeve that can be used as a water bowl for dogs. Messy Mutts’ travel water bottle and bowl features a similar design. The DOOG 3-in-1 Bottle uses a neoprene insulator that keeps water cold and doubles as a water bowl.
Retailers can also offer their customers special leashes that make walking, hiking and running with dogs easier. The Trail Runner System from Ruffwear includes a hands-free belt and leash, and even comes with a water bottle that can fit into the belt. The HALTI All-in-One Lead from The Company of Animals is specifically designed for running and hiking. The multifunctional leash can be handheld or used in a hands-free or tether format. Leashes and collars from OmniPet by Leather Brothers’ UltraSport line are optimal for outdoor use as they are “stink-proof” and easy to clean.
With a range of outdoor pet products, retailers can help customers achieve their fitness goals and bond with their pets.
