10 doggy must-haves to put on your pet sitter wish list
We have prepared a list of game-changing items that dogs and their owners will love and will make dog sitting a doddle. Stick these on your wish list now!
Tractive GPS Tracker
It goes without saying that dogs should always be closely supervised when outdoors, but the truth is, some dogs are escape artists. Fortunately the Tractive GPS Pet tracker lets you locate them immediately if they manage to leave your sight. It also has a super cool ‘virtual fence’ feature, which sends an alert to your phone if the dog leaves a designated area.
Orthopaedic Dog Bed
If you have any elderly guests, this memory foam bed will help to ease joint pain and improve mobility—and it’s so comfy all dogs will love crashing on it!
Chuckit! Ball Launcher & Ball
There are few things dogs enjoy more than playing fetch. Bringing a ball launcher and a tennis ball with you to the park or the beach is a fantastic way to bond with your guests and keep them healthy. With this simple object, you can enjoy hours of playing fetch without tiring out your arm or ever having to pick up a slobbery ball.
Food-Dispensing Chew Toy
Dogs like to hunt, forage, and scavenge, and that’s why KONG food-dispensing toys are a great way to keep them entertained. Fill the RSPCA-approved chew toy with treats or peanut butter and watch your furry friend enjoy. Always make sure to consult owners about the type and amount of treats their dogs are allowed.
Compostable Poo Bags
Not all biodegradable poo bags are eco-friendly. If you don’t want your guest’s waste to be enshrined in plastic for the next 200 years stock up on some compostable poop bags. These premium, leak-proof bags are fully compostable and capable of breaking down and decomposing in 30 days.
Collapsible Dog Bowls
Whether you’re heading out for a hike or a quick run around the park, pack a collapsible water dish to keep your four-legged companion hydrated.
Waterproof Car Seat Protector
This waterproof and machine-washable cover fits most car seats and will keep dirt and pet hair from sticking to or damaging your car’s interior. Plus dogs will love the comfy, quilted design.
Foldable Dog Swimming Pool
A pet swimming pool is a fun way to keep your guests cool and comfortable come summer. This one’s incredibly compact when folded up and it’s also deep enough that even the largest of dogs can have a good splash around.
Pet-Hair Vacuum Cleaner
This powerful vacuum cleaner is one of the best out there if you have pet hair to get rid of. It works equally well on carpets and hard floors, plus the pet-power-brush attachment easily removes hair from sofas, stairs, and other tricky spots.
First step to keep your house clean is avoiding that dirt to enter in the first place! Made from sustainably harvested bamboo with soothing aloe vera and Vitamin E, these paw wipes help to remove dirt from dogs coats while going easy on their skin. Ideal for giving them a quick wipe down before going back inside.
