    28 Things That'll Help You Have The Best Weekend Ever With Your Dog

    Weekdays are ruff, but "fur"tunately, we have the weekend to spend with our pups.

    1. A rucksack so your doggo can carry all of their essentials for your weekend excursions like their treats, poop bags, and first aid kit!

    2. A portable water bottle because have you ever tried to give a dog water from a regular water bottle? It's practically impossible. With this one, you can just press a button and it will release water into the bowl, allowing your pup to get hydrated and ready for your next adventure.

    4. A pair of adjustable leggings to keep their paws protected without having to deal with them constantly trying to take their booties off. Plus, they'll look ~fabulous~.

    5. A space-themed dog leash because your pup's personality is out of this world and their accessories should match that energy.

    6. A portable paw washer so you can keep those paws squeaky clean after a long day of rolling around in dirt and mud at the dog park and not have to worry about them getting your new car seats dirty. Not today, Samuel Pawson.

    7. A pet carrier backpack because even the littlest of pals still want to go on adventures. When they inevitably get tired after a half-mile of your hike, you'll have the pack to let them rest.

    8. A pair of dog booties made of water-resistant nylon to keep your furry pal's sensitive paws dry and safe from wet, rocky, hot, *and* cold conditions.

    10. A backseat extender to protect your pup from sliding off their seat if you hit the brakes a bit too hard.

    11. A travel kit that will allow you to pack all of your pup's weekend trip essentials all in one convenient place. It has two collapsible silicone bowls, two food containers, and multiple pockets for any extra accessories they may need.

    13. A life jacket so they can enjoy the water without you having to worry if they're going to be in any trouble.

    14. A classic Kong flying toy because is there anything more quintessential than playing a flying disc game with your pup on the weekends? Spoiler alert: there isn't.

    15. A seatbelt strap that will keep Frodo Barkins safe and secure in the back and you can stop imagining them jumping out the window on the highway. Yes, we all do this.

    16. A personalized dog hat to protect their little eyes from the hot summer sun, while also looking ridiculously adorable. Bonus points if you get a similar hat for yourself and match!

    17. A shower attachment that will make bathtime so much easier, saving you time and energy for more fun activities, like playing in mud! Woo-hoo!

    18. An ice cream mix so you and your pup can both have some frozen treats while you chill on the couch all weekend. All you need to do is add water and freeze!

    19. A splash pad because summer is coming and with hot days, come hot puppies. This pad will not only cool them off, but will provide them with some serious fun. Bonus: You can jump in too!

    20. A doggie onesie so you and Sarah Jessica Barker can get cozy for a night in of RHONY and snacks.

    21. A pet car booster that will keep your pupparoni secured in the car seat while you drive around. The seat attaches to the headrest to stay in place and has a back belt for extra safety.

    22. A tennis ball holder so you don't have to hold that slimy, dirty, sticky mess your dog hands you. Blegh. It's also a great way to not lose the ball for the hundredth time.

    23. A dog poop bag holder because you don't want to walk around holding their poo and we all know Fido definitely doesn't want to carry around their own poop. You can hook it to your backpack, purse, or even bicycle for easy, hands-off storage.

    24. An LED collar for your nighttime ventures so you can have some peace of mind knowing exactly where your pup is when it's too dark to see them otherwise.

    25. A classic Kong toy, which is basically a right of passage for every dog owner. Smear some peanut butter inside it or stuff it with their favorite treats and they'll be busy for hours while you do your weekend chores.

    26. A quick-drying towel with pockets that allow you to dry your doggo eight times faster than a regular cotton towel or blow-dryer. That means more time for weekend cuddles! AKA the best cuddles.

    27. A treat pouch that'll make it so much easier to carry their snacks around when they're bopping around town. Oooor you can even carry your own treats. Pft.

    28. A sling carrier for when you need to carry your lil buddy but prefer to have them in front of you rather than in a backpack. It even has breathable mesh so you don't have to worry about them overheating!
