Metro Pets

If you have a dog like mine, keeping her out of the water in the summer is nearly impossible. She’ll just jump into any body of water – pool, lake, or ocean. She’s even been known to flop down in a muddy grass patch.

If your pooch is just as drawn to H2O as mine is, get a Hydro Collar from Hot Dogs All Dressed. ( These collars are bright, waterproof, stink-proof (who likes a musty smell!) and vegan. Absolutely low maintenance, you can also get a leash to match. And don’t be afraid that it may be unfashionable. The Hydro Collars can be customized with a choice of hundreds of charms.

If you’re lucky enough this summer to be spending time with your dog by a pool, keep her comfy and cool with a Snoozer Pet Bed ( These beds have a water resistant marine grade bed cover, so wet dogs need not despair. The covers are also washable with a removable inner liner. They come in 4 sizes, round and rectangle, in myriad of fabric choices.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! That is the mantra for an active creature in the summer. To keep your pet healthy and hydrated get the Doggy Water Bottle. Designed for dogs, this bottle releases water when your dog licks the roller-ball. It is made of all green BPA-free stainless steel. There is no mistaking this is for pooch with the Bones design or the Paws design on these bottles. Pick one up at
