Hugh Hayden HEX Tennis Dog Bed

Will your dog sleep on this unique bed, or will he try and destroy it, one ball at a time, as he engages you in a never-ending game of Fetch? This dog bed is the latest edition from the HEX Tennis furniture collection, and is constructed of recycled tennis balls from the New York Metropolitan area.  The bed includes a removable two-sided cushion, with red on one side and black on the other and it’s for smaller dogs up to approximately 25lbs. in size.  A larger sized bed for bigger breeds is coming soon, but be warned: your canine tennis ball fanatics will likely play, not sleep, with this bed, $285.

Bark4Beer Retractable Bottle Opener and Dog Collar

This is a first – a combo retractable bottle opener and dog collar. Something says this product was developed while the founders were throwing back a few cold ones. Still, everyone knows that a dog enjoys having a job to do, perhaps even if that job is barktender. It’s just a matter of time before Whine4Wine, a retractable corkscrew and dog collar in one, is available for sale. Collars and leashes, $19.95 and $12.95.

Poo Boss K9 Utility Vest

This dog vest gets top marks for it’s selection of bright colors, and its reflective stripes to enhance nighttime visibility and keep your dog safe. And the pockets for waste bags and your personal items are great too. But the pocket specifically for your dog’s poo bag? It doesn’t sit right. Even if your dog is a fan of his own and other dog’s poo (and let’s admit, he or she very well may be), just carry the bag and let him enjoy his walk with dignity, $24.95-$39.95.

Rear Gear

Rear Gear is “a collection of rear-enhancing products,” according the company website, and more specifically it’s a tag that attaches to your dog’s tail and keeps his ‘intimate’ parts covered up. Choose from an assortment of cheery design like a smiley face, a flower, a disco ball, an air freshener, or a custom design of your choice. These are available for cats too, but don’t count on your cat wearing one. The good news is the main purpose of the product is to make people laugh, $6 and $20 for custom designs.
