I’m not an animal person. However there is a small portion of me that looks at little puppies and my anti-animal, Grinch themed heart melts. No matter what though, I thoroughly enjoy watching dog owners go crazy as if their dog is their next of kin. Seriously though, it’s hilarious how intense they get. So to celebrate crazy dog owners, I found a few products that I know they won’t be resist.
In fact, I can see many screaming internally and slightly jumping up and down out of pure enjoyment of getting something more for their dog.
For the beauty people there is Birchbox and for drinkers Julibox. But for your dog, there is Barkbox. Every month you can get four or more products for your little one. From toys, bones, treats that all natural, and even gadgets. Another plus is the fact that portions of the profits help dogs in need.
So you are always able to have you dog close to your heart…or at least an obvious place where you can brag about him or her. Although there are a variety of options (just type dog necklace in Etsy), you can get your dog’s name printed on everything from a tag to bone.
This should be a standard item for dog owners to buy. I mean, what dog doesn’t look adorable in a little hoodie? And you have to keep your pup warm. When it comes to dressing your dog, you might as well do it in style. Plus it even has the pocket and variety of colors – you can’t say no to it.
To be honest, I barely want to cook let alone make treats for a living creature who can’t even speak English. I see how it could be fun, making something, decorating a treat, just for your one and only little pup. Just don’t get it mixed up with your waffle maker.
A LED light up ball? Handy and cool. It’s perfect for those who like to play with their dog when it’s a little darker out, or for those who just want something a little more entertaining than your typical tennis ball. Not to mention if you are at the dog park, the two of you will really be able to put on a show.
This is by far the cutest but craziest one of them all. In case you need a custom stuffed dog so then yhttps://poorgirlsguidechicago.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit.phpou can always have your dog around, Shelter Pups is the place to go. It bases off pictures you send in, using Merino Wool and handmade in the USA. Although it comes with a hefty $150 price tag, it has a two week turnaround and proceeds go to shelters and rescues. Not to mention, it looks exactly like a mini version of a dog.
Crazy dog lovers, you can rejoice. I have supplied plenty of entertainment for you until you teach your dog how to finally roll over. Just don’t go crazy over excitement whenever you receive the latest Barkbox for finally get to cuddle with your dog and the stuff version.
