By: Stephanie Zolis

Dog owners spare no expense when it comes to providing for their pets. Pamper your pooch with these stylish accessories and handy tools. You'll wonder how you ever did without them!

Poop Pac Dog Walkers Bag

A lightweight case to house both unused and soiled dog waste bags, this handy accessory can be worn one of three ways—clipped to your belt, strapped to your wrist or over the shoulder—allowing you play fetch hands-free.

Poop Pac Dog Walkers Bag, $33,

American Apparel Please Give Me Space Dog T-Shirt

Don’t worry about wandering hands while walking your canine ever again. Let his T-shirt tell strangers to stay back, instead. This 100-percent cotton design from American Apparel comes in five sizes for a comfortable fit, no matter what breed he is.

American Apparel Please Give Me Space Dog T-Shirt, $25.50,

Push Pushi raincoat

Keep your canine warm and dry on rainy days with this water-repellant fleece-lined nylon jacket. It connects directly to your leash or harness and comes in a variety of colours and sizes (from teacup to XXL). The best part? The detachable hood protects your pooch from rain without obstructing his hearing or vision.

Push Pushi raincoat, from $44,

iFetch Automatic Ball Launcher

If playing fetch isn’t your favourite way to spend time with your pooch, you’ll love iFetch. This interactive, on-demand ball launcher keeps dogs entertained and active. You can even adjust the distance of each launch, depending on your environment. ­­­The price tag includes three balls (if you need more, a set of five costs $11), which are 40 millimetres smaller in diameter than standard tennis balls.

iFetch Automatic Ball Launcher, $110,

Whistle Activity Monitor

Check in with your dog even when you’re apart with this activity monitor that connects to your smartphone. Attach the device to her existing collar and it will track her day’s activities—walks, playtime and rest—and provide you with a summary. You can even set goals, monitor progress, track eating and medication and view vet reports. The collar attachment comes with a USB charging dock and is compatible with Android and iOS.
