At BISSELL, we’re always looking for the coolest new pet products to improve life for you and your pet. While showcasing the BarkBath at Global Pet Expo, we spotted a few trends in pet care (and entertainment!) that are sure to be the next big thing:
The Daily Walk Gets An Upgrade
Today’s pets have endless clothing and accessories to choose from, and the fashion is becoming very sophisticated. Pet style is also evolving to include reflective vests for visibility at night, and water and windproof jackets to shield your pet from the elements. So they don’t fall behind on the fitness tracking craze, pets can now wear their own fitness trackers (via collar or leash) while walking with you to monitor daily steps, heart rate and calories burned.
Pets Have Refined Tastebuds, Too
The latest trends in cuisine for people are also popular for four-legged family members. Organic, cleanly-sourced, artisan-prepared pet foods are all the rage. Shorter ingredient lists are on the rise for pet food as more people look for whole foods, like kale, for their pets. Wait… dogs like kale? You bet! Kale doggie treats make your dog's coat softer and shinier, with healthier skin underneath. But we think they should also get a pet-friendly frozen yogurt treat once they eat their veggies, because life is all about balance.
Brain Teasers Banish Boredom
Squeaker toys, balls and Frisbees are tons of fun. Pets need mental stimulation and many of the new products we saw at Global Pet Expo encourage this. Brain games and puzzles challenge your pet in new ways, helping to entertain and calm them. Mazes, secret compartments that contain treats, and multi-activity toys
will keep your pet stimulated and happy
