Oooops – Earth Day was on Monday and while we definitely appreciated it, our heads were down hard at work. Come on – we’re not alone here, right?

We’re making up for it by highlighting the very eco friendly West Paw Design brand. They have some ultra cool, stylish and eco friendly dog beds that you can check out in our new “beds” category. They also make great dog toys and apparel. All West Paw Design products are made in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. So these products are both good for the environment and for the U.S.!

Is your dog getting enough exercise?

Ever wonder if your dog is getting Tagg-Pet-Tracker exerciseenough exercise? Well we just discovered a product that monitors your dog’s activity and tracks your pet’s location (especially helpful if he gets lost).

The Tagg pet tracking system allows you to track your pet’s location and activity from your computer or mobile device. The Tagg tracker attaches to your dog’s collar. It will monitor your dog’s activity levels (even while swimming) and you’ll be able to a full report of their exercise.

The built in GPS feature will also send you a text and/or email in case your dog is lost.


Fit Blogs to Keep Your Dog Healthy

We thought we would try out this Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With Love. It’s essentially a list of other blogs with articles about how to promote a healthy active lifestyle for your dog:

Kobi’s Favorite Day and Travel Dog Bag

Dog Bag

Having a great dog bag is a vital necessity when you have a busy, on the go life with your dog. We tried out a lot of different bags for Kobi, but after trial and error, we came to love the PetEgo Boby Bag and Jet Set Pet Carrier.

You can see Kobi (with his friend Kelly) in the Boby Bag here on the left. The bag is stylish and lightweight. If I have it completely closed, people are often surprised I have a dog in it. It’s durable and Kobi has never even tried to destroy it. Note that Kobi did eat through some of the bags we tried out.

The Boby Bag is perfect for running around town (e.g. going on the subway), but not big enough for longer trips (e.g. plane) for Kobi as he’s almost 20lbs. If you have a smaller pet, it would likely be great for plane travel too.

When we need to go on a longer trip or travel via plane, we bring the Jet Set Pet Carrier. This is very stylish and fits underneath the seat in front of you when traveling via plane. We have not had any issues with flying him in this bag. People often don’t notice Kobi is in this bag too. It’s roomier for Kobi and comes with a variety of straps so you can use it as a handle bag, shoulder bag, back pack or car bag. It has flaps on the side, which allows you to give your dog a bit more privacy (e.g. if they are sleeping). It also has a nice comfortable double sided floor mat which can easily be taken out and cleaned. Our neighbors even borrowed the Jet Set Pet Carrier for their dog (Kobi’s girlfriend Fiesta) when they went on a trip via plane and it worked out nicely for them.

You can get both the PetEgo Boby Bag and Jet Set Pet Carrier in our shop.
