Anything less than fabulous for our furry family members just won’t do. When it comes to our pups, we treat them with human fervor. Well, as we should because they give us so much unending dedication, constant enjoyment, and imperishable love. Getting right into it, we searched high and low for some of the best dog accessories on the market, from the essentials to the downright “so cute you gotta have it” items for your canine furbaby.
If you are new to the world of pup ownership or a seasoned dog owner, it’s daunting when it comes to choosing the first and the best dog collar for your little loved one— it’s an essential accessory after all. Of course, getting a collar in person with your dog is the best option; however, many retailers have easy-to-follow instructions and tips when ordering online. Every dog is different in its needs, and there are so many various options, brands, designs, materials, and uses.

The best dog leash to use is 6-foot nylon or leather leash with sturdy hardware, providing freedom of movement while keeping your dog close enough to have them under complete control. It’s obvious to choose a thicker leash if you have a massive puller and a smaller diameter for a dainty pooch who typically stays by your side. Retractable dog leashes can also be a great option, particularly for training purposes. Some of the best retractable dog leashes even have built-in poop bag dispensers, which can be quite handy!
These options are a guaranteed favorite:

Whether you just got a new pup, need a better way to control them, during excursions, or training them, a dog harness makes a big difference. Collars, especially, choke collars can create strain on your dog’s windpipe and in some cases, their spine. Having the best dog harness in lieu of a choke chain can prevent unnecessary inhumane choking during training and in hard-to-control dogs.
