Hiking and Running: Bring Fido on your next hike with the Top
Paw™ Reflective Backpack
. Made of lightweight material and decked
out with handy compartments means pups can easily tote their own food,
snacks and waste bags. Keep them nourished with TurboPUP complete meal
bars, a portable, healthy food on-the-go. These all-natural,
high-protein and grain-free bars are perfect for pet parents who get out
with their dogs.

Camping: Collapsible bowls like the Petmate®
Collapsible Travel Dog Bowl
make hydration away from home a
snap! The bowl collapses down to less than half an inch and is made of
durable, non-porous silicone. Camping and other outdoor adventures are
often synonymous with insects but you can help protect your pets from
pests with an Insect Shield tee, neck gaiter or bandana. This
lightweight gear is designed to provide long-lasting, effective,
odorless insect protection.

Beach Bumming: For pups that love to romp in the water, the Top
Paw® Neoprene Reflective Life Jacket offers
versatility and athletic styling. A durable rescue handle makes it easy
to help dogs out of the water in the event of an emergency. For pups who
prefer a more leisurely beach experience, the Martha
Stewart Pets® Flamingo Swimsuit
will have them beach-ready and
adorable.

Playing in the Puddles: PetSmart offers a variety of stylish rain
coats to make romping through puddles a blast. The Top
Paw™ Dots Rain Coat
, also available in trendy floral and plaid
patterns, brings fun and comfort to dogs on rainy days. Matching
booties
are also available!

Nighttime Adventures: Outdoor playtime doesn’t have to stop when
the sun goes down – continue the fun safely with light-up collars,
harnesses and leashes. Top Paw® Dog-E-Glow™ products
all have an LED light tube sewn in to make dogs more visible.
