Must Have Products for Dogs and Cats

Backpacks, car barrios and treats are things that our pets need. If you dogs and cats, then you need to check out these products.

My husband and kids love to go on walks and hikes. He usually has one hand holding my 4 year old’s hand, and the other on the leash. This doesn’t leave a lot of options for him to carry other items, unless he wanted to wear a backpack. This backpack/harness solves that problem in a second.

It took us a second to figure out how to get it on correct (mainly because House wasn’t working with me). After both him and I figure things out he was good. He has never tried to fight it, or acted like he didn’t like it. If you need a little extra room, there is an expander that gives a little more.

Not only is it a backpack, but also a harness that you can hook your leash to. It’s secure and won’t pull your pup like a regular collar does.

I have a big boy, so if this fits mine I’m pretty sure Outward Hound has a size that would fit your baby too.

House does not always listen, especially when in the car. He is always trying to get up into the front seat. This isn’t always liked, like when we have food.

  • Creates a barrier to keep dogs safely in the back seat
  • Adjustable straps to fit most automobiles
  • Padded back and bottom provide comfort and support
  • Easy to install and folds flat when not in use
  • Product Dimensions - 17" x 15"
  • Packaging Dimensions - 7" x 6.5" x 1.5"

The PupStop is so easy to install, you just slid the loops around the seats and you are good to go. Ever since we installed one in the truck, House has not even tried to get into the front. We need to put one in my car now as well.

I would say this is a must have for dog owners that take them in the car on a regular basis. For under $10 is very affordable.

Who doesn’t like getting samples of products before we buy the full thing? I may blog for a lot of products, but I still buy things. I’m just like you and want to make sure I like it. This is even more true when it comes to my pets and treats. House isn’t very picky, but my cats are.

PINCHme allows me to test out a lot of products before I buy them. The best part of all; I don’t have to actually buy the sample or pay shipping. You read that right! Setting up an account is really easy. After that you go through and answer a few questions to build your profile. From there PINCHme will alert you when there is a sample available (usually the 3rd Tuesday of each month) to add to your box. When your box is full, you can have it mailed to you.

This is perfect for pets as you can get products like Zuke’s, Purina, Muse Natural Cat food and so many more. I got our first box and was surprised on how awesome it was. Yes, they are samples sizes, but that’s all we needed. There was even a coupon for $7 off a product for my cats (I’ll be using soon).

Once you receive the samples, PINCHme will send you a questionnaire to get your thoughts on the products. This helps them know what you think. It’s super easy and super fast. Just so you know, you get more than just pet products, you can get beauty, kids, food and even household products as well.

  1. I like the Pup backpack - that's a great idea for a family or a jogger who needs to stash house keys and id and poop bags!!


  2. I love this list!! We have 2 black labs and are always looking for GREAT products! I need the seat cover for my car!

  3. These are great products. I am in love with that harness and that backpack! Thank you for sharing, I will definitely have to check these sites out.

  4. I just signed up for PinchMe. I am hoping to get to try lots of new stuff for my cats

  5. I like the idea of PinchMe to try new products. I don't typically switch foods, but love trying new treats for my dogs. And I do like the look of the backpack, but none of mine would be a fit for that.
