I received Petmate products to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
Did you know that March 30th is Take a Walk in the Park Day? Neither did I! But it is and Petmate wanted us to celebrate so they sent me a few items for my dog Roo to try out. We got to test out the PetMate Travel Bowl, Pop-Up Tent, Tug-o-Rama toy, Palm Retractable Leash, and Clean Response Quick-load Dispenser.
I found the Petmate Travel Bowl and tent could be amazing camping tools. The PetMate Pop-Up Tent lived up to its name by easily popping-up. It has mesh windows and waterproof roof and floor and is made from heavy duty canvas. It would be great to use as a portable shade for your dog on a warm summer day or to take while camping so that you always had a spot for them where they could see everything.
The tent we received was a bit small for Roo to be comfortable, but our cat Sam found it to be the most amazing thing ever. He just sat in there for several hours very content with life. The bowl can expand up to 3 cups and is very sturdy. It would be great for food or water and is small enough that it would easily fit in a bag or backpack.
We have gone through three different poop bag holders in the last year and none of them have felt very sturdy. The Clean Response Quick-load Dispenser is very sturdy and attache right to the Petmate Retractable Leash. The bags are pushed through the softer end for easy reload and you never have to worry about the ends falling off and the bags falling out.
The Tug-o-Rama is your basic rope toy with a plastic anchor that can be moved along the rope to help throw the toy further. It can also be used as a tug toy depending on what your pet likes best. The plastic is pretty sturdy, but of course some dogs can chew through anything they set their minds on. Roo’s favorite game is fetching the toy and then forcing you to chase him around to retrieve it from him. He loves to be chased and liked that this toy was easy to pick up and run with.
I was very impressed with the quality of Petmate’s merchandise and the practicality of some of the pieces. I look forward to purchasing more from their brand for future hikes and camping trips so that my pet can be as comfortable as I like to make myself.
