Summer is right around the corner. Are you prepared to keep those tails wagging all season long? Keeping your pup cool and comfortable can be quite the task as temps start to rise, but we’re here to help. Check out the list of our top (dog-approved) summer faves below.

1. Highwave Water Bottle

Hydration is key when it comes to a happy pup (and paw-rents). Highwave makes it easy to keep up with your pup’s increased water needs during the summer months. Our favorite design is their new, AutoDogMug. This leak-tight design is perfect for families on the move. The top of this bottle features a small bowl that makes it easier to drink from, and the handy carabiner is great for storing the water bottle on a backpack or crate.

Need another reason to choose Highwave? They recently joined 1% For The Planet, meaning 1% of every sale goes toward non-profits focused on healing our environment.

2. Evolve GainFree Jerky Bites

Time and time again, the Grain Free Jerky Bites continue to be a fan favorite. With tasty flavors like salmon and lamb, pups crave the flavor. We love the super premium quality, and how easy they are to break into smaller pieces for training.

3. Schwinn Rascal Plus Pet Carrier

If you’re like us, it’s hard to leave the dogs at home. When it comes to your bike rides, now you don’t have to, thanks to Schwinn’s Rascal Plus Pet Trailer. We’ve personally tested this trailer with one slobbery, rambunctious pup, and we’re proud to say, it held up to its end of the bargain. With a built-in leash and windows for your pup to stick their head out (or for you to zip up for speedy traveling), this trailer has all the bells and whistles. We love the Rascal Plus because it can hold up to 100lbs; perfect for gear and a pup!

4. Asher and Gray Design Pet Bandana

Okay, so maybe this one isn’t a summer essential, but your pup will be the talk of the town with one of Asher and Gray Design’s handmade dog bandanas. These bandanas are made with pups in mind, with the perfect fit and fun patterns. Their ‘Chill Mode’ and ‘Pineapple’ bandanas are our top favorites. Be it a bow tie or custom bandana, Asher and Gray Designs will have your furry friend looking good this summer.

5. Rex Specs Dog Goggles

Eye protection is just as important for your pooch as it is for you. You wouldn’t head to the beach without your sunglasses, and your pup shouldn’t either. Rex Specs goggles are made for pups on the go. All lenses are rated UV400, blocking 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Every pair of goggles come with two sets of lenses, so you can swap them out depending on your activity.
