Daisy at the beach

Daisy LOVES the beach and summertime fun…what dog doesn’t?!? Whatever your family has planned for this summer, PetSmart has a huge selection of Summer Must-Haves for pets and we’ve chosen a few to highlight for you. Be sure to check back soon because PetSmart will also be sponsoring a sweet prize for our upcoming Summer Solstice Giveaway June 18-24!


KONG FlyerKONG Flyer
We recently featured the KONG Flyer dog toy in our weekly K9 Kamp Fitness Challenge called ‘Just a Doggone Minute to Win It!’ and I can’t say enough about how fun this toy is.  The KONG Flyer is a flexible and durable flying disc toy that can be used both indoors and outside. Because it’s made from soft rubber, it’s gentle on your dog’s teeth. It’s also easier to catch and is super accurate in flight – even though Mama has horrible aim! We’re keeping ours in the trunk of my car so it’s handy all summer long, wherever we go!


Outward Hound Pet Lifesaver Jacket

Outward Hound Pet Saver Lifejacket

Yes…dogs CAN swim, but if your family does water sports, boating or spends a lot of time on and near the water, it’s very important to have a lifejacket for your dog.  Providing flotation and buoyancy with bright colors, pet parents can easily track their pup as the family enjoys water activities.  Take your dog with you to PetSmart so that you can fit them with the proper size   Outward Hound Pet Saver Lifejacket and enjoy peace of mind all summer!
