There is a multitude of dog products out there. You can get your dog everything from a new collar and leash to a fancy doghouse to doggy clothes and so much more. While my dogs get new collars, leashes, beds and toys when they need them (and sometimes when they don’t), there are a few products I don’t think I’d ever purchase for them. These dog items, incidentally, has me wondering who exactly would buy them.
A Petattoo is a temporary tattoo you can put on your dog. The site claims that the product is “easy to use, non-toxic and they wash off in a flash.” Basically you put puppy-safe paint on a rubber stamp and apply it to your dog, then use a wet paper towel to wipe it off. Your dog can sport tattoo musings such as “Heartbreaker,” “Say it to the Paw” and “Cat’s Suck!”
For the neutered dog who is just so insecure about losing his “manhood.” Yes, that’s exactly what this product is – “a revolutionary testicular implant procedure for pets,” according to the website. The Neuticles’ motto? “It’s like nothing ever changed.” Some of the testimonials on the site from veterinarians state that they hope this product encourages more people to neuter their pets. I didn’t realize that the look of an un-neutered pet was that important. None of the male dogs I’ve had over the years seemed to suffer any self-esteem issues after the procedure. Perhaps they hid it well.
3. Rear Gear
So… how do I explain this one? Rear Gear looks like the air fresheners you hang on your rearview mirror. The only difference is you hang it on your canine companion’s tail to hide his, well, rear. Because no dog wants to be exposed, right?
4. Bowser Beer
Well, I suppose if your dog has his brand-new testicles and tattoos, he has to have beer as well. The beer comes in Beefy Brown Ale and Cock-a-Doodle Brew. The site states that none of the ingredients are toxic to dogs and is made with “all natural ingredients.” Pet parents can not only purchase this dog-friendly beer for their pups, but they can also make a custom label featuring a photo of their dog. A six-pack costs $19.99.
In my research I also found a spray that freezes dog poop, flavored bubbles for dogs, nail polish for dogs, a doggy thong (seriously, though it is now a discontinued product) and a doggy high chair. Have you seen a strange dog product recently?
Would you ever – or have you ever – purchased any of the products listed above?
