metal container
Galvanized metal cans are a neat solution for the messy business of storing dry pet food. The Dog can holds 22 pounds, the Cat version holds 10 ($44 and 48; harrybarker.com, 843-766-8686). And the ergonomic handle of this aluminum scoop makes the chore perfectly painless ($55; dwr.com, 800-944-2233).
dog carriers
Kate Spade’s Sit and Stay canvas dog carriers are cute enough to rival any precious breed inside. They’re clever, too: The washable interiors are covered in laminated, canine-related newspaper clippings ($195; katespade.com, 800-519-3778).
water container
It looks like it was designed for a military operation. But Charly Box was actually made for deployments with a pooch. One half is a canteen for storing water, the other a tray for serving the water and food. The two halves snap together so it can be carried in a backpack or stashed in a trunk ($60; dwr.com, 800-944-2233).
travel bag
George’s vinyl travel case is like a mobile home for pets. There are roll-up flaps to provide ventilation and nice views, and there’s a wooden platform base to keep it sturdy. The zippers—on top and on one end—make it easy for the four-legged to come and go (small case, $200, large, $225; georgesf.com, 877-322-3232).
pet dish
Susan Kralovec of Everyday Studio designed this Pet Dish for a very finicky feline–her own. It’s elevated (the design recommended by vets), made of steel, and comes with removable stainless steel bowls ($85; everydaystudio.com; 415-421-1600).
London-based Mungo & Maud’s padded-cotton Grass bedroll helps peripatetic pooches travel in style ($116; mungoandmaud.com, 011-44-207-952-4570). Likewise, Harry Barker’s pre-washed cotton canvas doggy bed fits in a crate or a car for plush lounging (from $36 for extra-small to $48 for large; harrybarker.com, 843-766-8686).
bolster bed
This brown striped bolster bed is so lush it looks destined for the Hotel du Plus Grand Chien. In the meantime, Fido may spurn your bed for its padded abundance ($171; mungoandmaud.com, 011-44-207-952-4570).
scratching post
Unlike a ratty old piece of carpet wrapped around a pole, the Claw scratcher appeals to both human and feline. It was inspired by early Gehry works, and it’s made of corrugated cardboard, the preferred scratching surface of most cats ($85; everydaystudio.com, 415-421-1600).
cat lounger
No longer will your kitty want to sleep on top of the VCR or under the oven; she’ll go directly for the Thermal Cat Lounger. It heats to a steady 102°F and is thermostatically controlled so it never overheats. The pad is removable for warm weather and the cover unzips for washing ($49; drsfostersmith.com, 800-381-7179).
The 14” x 22” Big Bone pet placemat is made of non-skid recycled rubber so it stays firmly in place ($13; oreoriginals.com, 800-367-2675). The flexible Packabowl travels well and comes in four colors that look just as nice at home ($18; polkadog.com, 617-338-5155).
