    1. A stuffing-free dog toy to ensure your pet is entertained ~all~ day long without the pesky mess of stuffing to clean up. After one playtime with this toy, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

    2. A pet GPS for the cat or dog who ~always~ seems to wander off outside — no matter how many times you triple check the leash or locks. You'll be able to know their location at all times with this *and* save yourself from worrying just a bit.

    3. A smartly designed dog feeder bowl to help your pup eat slower. Instead of quickly eating the food (which, can cause hiccups and other problems), they'll eat slower and digest it better.

    4. An aluminum weather-proof pet door for your pup to walk outside whenever they want. Although it can be used at all times, it can also be adjusted so that they can only use it when you want them to, if you prefer.
