IDEGG Collapsible Silicone Pet Bowls (set of two), $5.99
Clip them (with the attached carabiners) to your luggage, bag, crate, leash or collapse them down flat for your jacket pocket, stroller, or glove compartment.

Lightspeed Outdoors Self Inflating Travel Dog Bed with Fleece Cover, $60
We love that this one travels rolled up (space saver!) but opens up to self inflate with a twist of a nozzle. The machine washable, puncture resistant and water resistant bottom and sides protect the bed from rough surfaces while the fleece top is cozy.

Ruffwear Kibble Kaddie Portable Dog Food Carrier, $40
We like that the food is dispensed through the side-mounted chute and that as you empty the container, you can roll it down to reduce volume and save space.

Kurgo Tailgate Dumpster for Dog Garbage Bags & Dog Poop Bags, $20
Sometimes, there’s just no place to put the poop. The silicone holder attaches to the back of car with super strong magnets and allows you to store your dog’s waste on the exterior of your car rather than inside. (Win-win.)

Messy Mutts Microfiber Travel Towel, $15
What are the chances your pup’s going to find some water this weekend? We thought so. This super-absorbent microfiber towel soaks up to 7 times its weight in water and folds into its own carrying pouch when done.

 

amazon.com

PAWABOO Pet Carrier Backpack, $16
If trotting around the city or country gets to be too much, give them a lift with this lightweight carrier. It’s made from breathable mesh and polyester, and two mesh side panels allow maximum air circulation.

 

 

amazon.com

Fab Fur Gear Pet First Aid Kit, $35
Accidents do happen, so be prepared. The well-stocked kit contains a tourniquet, medical tape roll, metal scissors, metal tweezers, an emergency blanket, protective gloves, sterile gauze, sponges, cotton tip applicators, an emergency dog collar, compress bandages, and more.
