Pet retailers from around the world are in Las Vegas this week to showcase their latest pet products. SuperZoo, the largest pet industry trade show in North America, features every kind of pet product imaginable: foods, treats, toys, leashes, grooming supplies, pet apparel, and the latest gadgets, all under one roof. Since SuperZoo is not open to the public, here are some pet products that caught my attention.
What pet doesn’t love a tasty treat? Instead of giving them any old treat, give them something yummy, healthy, and good for the environment. Jiminy’s dog treats are made from pumpkin, flaxseed and crickets and check all those boxes. Yes, “crickets” was not a typo. Crickets are a sustainable and healthy source of protein that contains more omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B12 than salmon! But your dog doesn’t care about that. More important to your pooch, Jiminy’s dog treats taste great!
Dogs love to chew! In order to keep their chewing from becoming a problem, make sure you give them plenty of chew toys. Otherwise, you may find that your favorite pair of shoes also became your dog’s favorite chew toy. When choosing a chew toy, be wary of hard materials that can break a tooth. Hero Bonetics dog chews are made from a proprietary material. Bonetics dogs chews are durable and long lasting, but unlike bones, hooves, and antlers, they are gentler on dog’s teeth and less likely to break a tooth. Bonetics dog chews come in a variety of sizes and shapes and they are flavor-infused to keep your dog entertained.
Our pets love to play. P.L.A.Y. makes a wide assortment of toys for your dog or cat. Their selection includes whimsical plush toys, like their Buggin Out, Tropical Paradise and adorable Camp Corbin collections, tough toys for serious chewers, enrichment toys to stimulate your pets, rope toys, and even toys for your feline friends.
Collars and Leashes
Collars and leashes are essential pet supplies. So why am I writing about these boring, everyday items? Many people don’t realize how much the materials used to make collars and leashes have evolved. One of these innovations is Bio Thane. Bio Thane is the brand name for webbing coated with PVC or TPU. Bio Thane collars and leashes are lightweight, strong, durable, have the feel of leather, but unlike leather, they are water-proof, easy to clean, and most important of all, stink-proof. If your dog likes to get down and dirty, switch to a Bio Thane collar and leash such as those by Pro-Mohs Pet Products. Get 15% off all their products when you use this code: SUPERZOO15
Why should dogs have all the fun? If you’re looking for a collar for your feline friend, look no further. Necoichi makes unique and beautiful collars inspired by Japanese fashion. Their collars are made of fabrics used to make kimonos.
Besides beautiful cat collars, Necoichi makes a variety of functional and beautifully designed products for cats and their owners. One of my favorites is the Necoichi Purrfection Neat & Easy Feline Hair Remover. Unlike conventional hair removers that use sticky tape, the Neicoichi Purrfection Neat & Easy Feline Hair Remover uses textured microfibers to pick-up fur and fuzz from your clothes and furniture. It collects fur in a storage container that is easy to empty once full.
