10 Best Products for Summer Adventures With Your Pup
Now that it's warming up, you can finally prepare for hikes, beach strolls and camping trips with your furbaby in tow.
Collapsible Water Bowl
Trust us on this one: skip those foldable water bottles you've seen in pet stores and go straight to the collapsible bowls. You'll thank us later. Unlike plastic water bottles, which break easily and feel bulky at your side, collapsible bowls are lightweight and come with a carabiner that conveniently clips onto your belt loop or leash.

Easy-Clip Seatbelt Adapter
Before you hit the road, make sure that your furbaby's buckled in, too. This seatbelt adapter comes with a small carabiner that you can attach to their harness (not their collar) and use to keep your pet safe and secure in the back of the car.

Hammock-Style Backseat Cover
An essential for anyone traveling with a dog, this car seat cover will protect your interior from fur, drool and dirty paws. Just clip a buckle around each of your headrests to form the hammock. Your pup will appreciate having a non-slip pad to lay on, while you'll be thankful for the thick, waterproof material (especially after they've romped through the mud).

Treat Pouch + Waste Bag Dispenser
For day trips, we suggest snagging this drawstring bag. Though it might seem small, the pouch has plenty of room for treats, toys and waste bags, plus a compartment for your keys and phone. Thanks to the shoulder strap and waist belt, you can wear it like a tote or go hands-free for the duration of your trip.

Pet Portrait Tool
Pics or it didn't happen, right? Get the perfect photo of your pup with the help of this clever, clip-on treat holder. The small prongs put their favorite snack front and center so you can get your dog to look right at the camera.

Clip-On Collar Light
Whether you're going for an evening walk or pausing for a quick potty break at a rest stop, it's always a good idea to make your dog more visible at night. We recommend clipping this LED light-up beacon onto their collar so motorists will have no problem spotting them.

Reflective Braided Leash
On that note, you can also keep your pet safe with a reflective leash. We love this one because it's about six feet long, giving your pup plenty of room to roam and because it includes bright bursts of neon to make them more visible.

Prevent your pet from overheating and wrap this cooling bandana around their neck. The accessory is available in three sizes and can be activated by soaking the fabric in cold water then wringing it out well.

On-the-Go Wet Wipes
After a hike in the woods or a walk along the beach, you'll definitely want to break out these pet-friendly wet wipes. Each one comes individually wrapped, so you can stick a few in a backpack or in the console of your car, and uses a plant-based formula to help gently remove dirt and germs.
Buy It: Target, $8.99
GPS Pet Tracker
In the event that your pet wanders a little too far from home, use the Tagg GPS Tracker to locate them. The tracker attaches to their collar and sends texts and email alerts straight to your phone once your pet leaves their pre-set boundaries. Note: You'll have to pay a one-time activation fee upon setup, but we think the peace of mind is so worth the price.
