When you think of Las Vegas, slot machines and showgirls may be the first thing that comes to mind, but it’s also the home of SuperZoo, one of the largest pet product showcases in the industry. And if you’re going to gamble, better to throw your money at something you and your dog are bound to love.
We walked for miles, saw every dog product imaginable, made lots of new doggie friends and came up with our picks for the best new products of 2015.

Is your house brimming with dog collars and leashes to match every outfit and mood? Or maybe your dog quickly dirties his collar when out on adventures? If either of these sound familiar, than this is for you.
Start with a basic collar and leash and customize it on a whim with a variety of interchangeable covers. The fact that we could change our look so easily, seemed to good to be true, so we tried it out ourselves. In less time than it takes us to get a collar on our dog, we had switched out collar covers to match the day’s look.
We love that the covers are smaller and priced accordingly, since they don’t have the buckles and clasps involved. Now we don’t have to be seen wearing the same thing everyday. Great for our wallet and our storage problems and not bad for our street rep either.

Beer and Pumpkin Biscuits
You had us at pumpkin and beer. If they label didn’t say dog treats, there is a good chance we would eat these ourselves. Let’s be honest, we may have already eaten one.
But before you get out your doggies ID to make sure he is 21 in human years, we should mention that Portland pet food beer treats are made not with beer, but with local spent grains from local breweries. The company uses local and sustainable products to make their doggie delights. And who doesn’t love that?

Go Dog Toys
We’re always looking for toys that are built to last and we love to see touch toys that don’t look too tough. With a Bulldog in the house, we often end up with a lot of sturdy toys in black and red and look for shapes without limbs, but Go Dog offers toys in bright colors and fun shapes that are easy to see and tough to tear.
From Wacky-Bounce Balls to Sling Shot Dragons we had just as much fun playing with the toys as your dog will.

Zip n’ Dri
Drying the dog after a bath is not high on our list of favorite activities; multiple towels later we are wetter than the dog and the dog isn’t exactly dry either. After wrapping the dog in a towel burrito we brace ourselves for the many wet shakes and escape attempts that follow. After dog and human both have had enough we let our dog towel-taco loose in the house and hope for the best. Spoiler alert: It never ends well.
Enter the Zip n’Dri – a bath snuggie for dogs. A perfect solution for your soggy-doggie, the Zip n’ Dri is an absorbent towel you can zip your dog into. Yes you can contain the wet dog into a towel from which he cannot escape. The good news for your dog: he can sit, stand, shake or even take a nap in his cozy towel device. The good news for you, unlike Taylor Swift, he can’t “Shake it Off.”
