If you’re tired of the same old dog toys and other run-of-the-mill dog products, you’re in for a treat. Here are some of the most innovative dog products around that are exciting for your dog and for you.
Hear Doggy Toy
Have you ever wanted to throw your dog’s annoying squeaker toy out the window after hearing it squeak one too many times? There’s no need with a Hear Doggy toy because its squeaker is silent for humans, that is. Only dogs can hear the squeaker that’s tuned to an ultrasonic range in the 24-28 KHz frequency, making it fun for your pup and perfect for when you don’t want to hear a thing. Oh, and they’re cute?

Dog treat maker
If your dog loves to eat just as much as you like to cook, then the Sunbeam Dog Treat Maker is going to be your dog’s new best friend (well, after you, of course). Four soft dog bone-shaped treats are just minutes away with this treat maker that functions like a waffle iron for dogs. The best part is that you can whip up delicious dog treats with ingredients you have around the house. Treat your dog daily or on special occasions. He’ll love you more for it! (sunbeampets.com, $30)
Dog Water Bottle
How many times have you wasted water when out walking your dog on a hot day? Cupping your hands to make a bowl for your dog to drink from isn’t easy! Or what about watering the grass as you try to give your dog water from your own water bottle? The Dog is Good water bottle has come to the rescue! Designed with a stainless steel roller ball to help control the flow of water, this is one water bottle that will become a summer walk must-have. And what else? You can also unscrew the top and flip it over — it turns into a cup! (dogisgood.com, $20)
Tagg Pet Tracker
If your pet has a habit of getting lost, a Tagg Pet Tracker is just the thing to keep tabs on your wandering furry family member. Just put the tracker on your pet’s collar and track his whereabouts from your computer or mobile device at any time. And not only does it track your pet’s movements, but it also keeps an eye on his well being. With a built in activity tracker, this inventive product is one that will help you be proactive when it comes to your pet’s health. (pettracker.com, $99)
Every dog owner knows nothing is worse than carrying around a plastic bag of smelly dog poop, and it’s even worse when you run into someone you know and are standing there with your dog’s waste in your hand! But fear not, because PoopPac has come to the rescue with a stylish, lightweight case for those pesky plastic bags. Aside from concealing your dog’s waste, it also neutralizes the odor with an activated charcoal filter — and it’s machine washable. Grab one in your pup’s favorite color, and trust us, no one will know what’s inside! (pooppac.com, $30)
