Pamper Your Millennial Dog
Every dog has a different personality. A cute ensemble may be fun for a little chihuahua (because it keeps them warm), but it may seem more like a punishment to your border collie. It’s important not to sacrifice your dog’s comfort just to snap a cute picture or to make your dog look stylish. You need to keep in mind how practical, comfortable, and safe all of the products and accessories you purchase for your pooch really are. That bedazzled collar may look cute, but if the jewels come off, this poses a choking hazard.
Fortunately, we’re here to help you make smart (and chic) buying choices for your dog. All of our picks are not only adorable, but safe and practical as well. The last thing any pup parent wants is to blow their paycheck on accessories that their dog absolutely hates. That’s why we test the products, and our dogs try them out, too! We’ll make sure to get their opinions, and give you a good idea of how your pooch will react. From toys, to treats, and even furniture and accessories – your dog is in good hands. Be sure to consult your pooch on their favorites, and you’ll be on your way to spoiling your pooch!
Emoji Squeaker Toys
Bring your favorite phone emojis to life with ZippyPaw’s Squeakie Emojiz Plush Dog Toy! Each toy measures 7″ in length, so make sure they will be the right fit for your pup before purchasing.
We love the innovative and creative designs that ZippyPaw’s presents in their Squeakie Emojiz Plush Dog Toy line. In particular, you can choose from: angry face, heart eyes, pile ‘poo, pizza slice, speak no evil monkey, and tongue out. Each emoji will allow your unique pup to emote their budding emotions!
We recommend this plush toy to dogs who are more gentle with their toys. Destroying pups may rip through the material and pull out the squeaker. On the whole, customers are very satisfied with the product and we believe you will be too! Additionally, we see these emojis as the perfect prop for your next selfie session!

Dog Crate Cover
Most fur moms and dads have crates in their houses. Not only do they give your dog a safe place to go when you’re not home, but they also serve as time-out areas, and cozy sleep quarters. While crates can be an eyesore for your house, they don’t have to be! With the Precision Pet Crate Cover, your crate can be a statement piece in your living room or den! They’re available in a variety of fun colors, and you can even purchase matching dog beds to complete the look.
Crate covers don’t just serve as a cute fashion piece, they’re also good for your dog. Dog covers help to keep your dog from getting overwhelmed with what’s going on outside of their crate. They also create a dark and “safe” place for them to cuddle up when they want to be alone or take a quiet nap.
The Precision Pet cover is our all-time favorite. It’s made with soft faux suede material that’s lightweight and eye-catching. The cover will cover most crate sizes, the dimensions are 24 x 19 x 18 inches. It will cover the top, sides, and back of the crate, leaving the front of the crate open for your pooch. It’s easy to wash, classy, and in our opinion, it’s a no-brainer! Check out the various colors on Amazon, and you’ll never have to worry about hiding your crate away again.

It has a secure latch on the front if you do want to make sure your pup stays in one place. It’s also made of solid wood, which will not only look great but will last your pup a long time.

While it may be fun to have your pooch sit on your lap while you’re driving, it’s unsafe to do so. Dog booster seats give your pooch a place to sit while you’re driving; keeping you focused on the road, and them out of trouble. They’re great for small dogs, because they’re raised up enough to allow them to see out of the windows. Additionally, many dog booster seats strap in to your car, and have attachments to allow you to buckle your dog into them. While your dog may prefer to sit on your lap, a booster seat will give them a comfortable, safe place to hangout during car rides.
The K&H Pet Products Booster seat is a must have for smaller dogs that can’t see out of the windows. It easily fits in either the front or back seat, and is comfortable for any smaller breed. Additionally, this booster seat is great for safety! It straps into your car, and also comes with an adjustable security leash that can attach to your dog’s harness.
This safety seat is available in two sizes and two colors; beige and grey. The smaller seat is 16″ x 16″ x 16″, and the larger version is 18″ wide x 13″ deep x 16″ tall.
When the seat gets to be too dirty, simply remove the cover and throw it in the washing machine. It’s easy to install, easy to clean, and a great pick for small dog owners.
If you and your pooch have bougie taste on a less-than bougie salary, the pup-tepee is a great pick! Treat your furry friends like kings and queens without breaking the bank.

Making time to spend with your dog can be hard, and making time to shop for them is even harder. With our two dogs, we simply signed up for a monthly subscription box. Every month Woof Pack sends us a pack full of goodies, and we never have to go to the pet store to stock up on toys or treats. Woof Pack is great because you can choose between a treats only pack, or a treat with toys, treats, and chews. Both our chihuahua and our border collie always go crazy over the treats, toys, and chews included. Their packs go as low as $20 per month, and you can cancel anytime. Check them out for yourself, your pup will thank you!
We all love to take pictures with our millennial dogs, but sometimes getting them to focus is tricky! We try holding treats near our phones, saying their names, and often it’s more work than it’s worth. The pooch selfie makes taking photos of your dog easy! As you can see, it’s basically an attachment with a tennis ball on top. Your dog will be focused on the ball, which is placed directly above the camera on smartphones. This makes a tremendous difference in the photos we take of our dogs. Simply clip the accessory on your smartphone, tell your pooch to sit, and voila, the perfect picture of your pup! When you’re finished taking the picture, simply pop the tennis ball off, and reward your dog for being so good!
The pooch selfie is compatible with just about every smartphone out there. You can use it with both your rear camera, and your front facing camera, capturing the perfect picture every time. In our opinion this product is well worth the price. You won’t have to fight your dog to take a good picture with you anymore!
Blueberry Collar & Harness
Blueberry dog collars are notorious for having tons of color, pattern, and size options. You don’t have to settle for a pattern that you don’t love for you dog because of the wide range of choices. The Blueberry Floral Collars come in 11 different color/pattern options. Kai loves that you can customize these collars to include your phone number and dog’s name. The price increases a bit when you choose the customized collar, but it’s way worth the price to have one less tag to purchase for your dog. You can even choose the color of the embroidered text to match the collar of your choice.
All collars have an eco-friendly plastic buckle. They range from size extra small to large. The extra small fits neck sizes 7.5-11 inches, the small fits 12-16 inches, the medium fits 14.5-20 inches, and the large fits neck sizes 18-20 inches. Out of the hundreds of collars on the market, Kai loves how personalized these collars are. If you add the embroidery option, your pup will have a one-of-a-kind fashionable collar. You can even purchase an adorable matching leash and harness on Amazon!
