Dogs are like babies. They require a lot of stuff.
From the crate to the bed, the toys to the clothes, the food to the treats. ALL OF IT!!
Between our stuff, the baby’s stuff, and Kemper’s stuff it feels like our house is overflowing with things. Well, it doesn’t ‘feel like it’, it is overflowing with stuff as we’ve begun storing some things at Price’s mom’s house. Such a relief.
That being said, everything we buy for Kemper has to be affordable, small, durable, and provide a solution to a real problem. We even factor those things into his toys, esp when he has been known to rip up a new toy within 5 minutes of giving it to him. Ropes are a pretty good buy, but stuffed animals last just a few minutes so that’s not very economical or safe.
So we have been very careful with recent buys as we want things to last and be purposeful. Thankfully, we have found a great brand that works for us. Price first purchased a car seat protector from Kurgo and then we discovered more and more great things from them.
This Wander Pail from Kurgo is a great storage solution for travel or weekend stay’s with Kemper’s dog sitter. We used it while we were camping as it has a storage part and a bowl part, which makes it compact and really useful as we don’t have to bring 2 things with us, just this one thing.
But how much does it hold? Of course, I tested it!
We weigh Kemper’s meals as he can gain/loose weight quickly. Plus his mischievous ‘sister’ Autumn likes to throw food at him from her high chair. So we monitor it closely by weighing out his meals… 75 grams to be exact!
So I tared the scale. And then measured out one meal.
And another. And another! That makes for 3 meals in the storage container.
Then the serving bowl portion goes on. And another meal is measured out!
The Wander Pail can hold 4 meals for Kemper which is GREAT for a weekend away making it perfect for Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast. If you need a container to hold more food then be sure to get the Kibble Carrier as it holds 64 oz of food! Plus it has a food bowl too. That would hold 12 days of food for our monster! (Which would work perfectly for when we go on our cruise in January and he stays with our amazing dog walker…)
Kemper really enjoyed using his Wander Pail while we were camping. And we enjoyed using as well since it was compact for our trip and was very easy to clean when we got back home as it is dishwasher safe.
We also brought this Atomic Drop Treat Bag with us that is great to have on long walks, hikes, and trips to the dog park. It definitely has gotten a lot of use this summer as we have been enjoying the nice summer nights as we take 2 1/2 mile walks around town saying ‘hi’ to our local firefighters and muttering swears under our breath at the hills in town.
Please?? Can I please have a treat!?!?!
Plus now my pockets don’t stink like dog treats. And I don’t find random pieces of dried chicken in my coat pockets either. And if we are at the dog park I can leave this with the stroller outside the fence so that all the other dogs don’t try to sniff my pocket (and nearby crotch region) smelling the treats that we brought for Kemper.
The Atomic Drop Treat Bag keeps treats fresh, secure, and right at hand. You can hang it to your waist band or clip it to your belt loop or the leash loop/handle with it’s carabineer. Plus it has a tiny zipper pouch which is just big enough for storing some money and your keys. This is compact but very efficient.
Awww, are you tired after camping?
This car seat cover has been a real life saver for our new car! LIFE SAVER! Well, seat saver… but you get my point!
We always took care of our first car but being that it had fabric seats we could beat up a bit more than our new Rav4’s leather seats. First I was afraid of his nails damaging the seats, and then the dirt. Oh, so much dirt! Kemper gets filthy after we visit his favorite dog park, trail, park, or the beach. The sand! The dirt! The mud! Oh my!
We selected the Shorty Bench Seat Cover as Kemper is not one to lean against or jump up to place his paws on the seat back. If your dog might do then I’d suggest getting the Kurgo Bench Seat Cover as it fully extends up the seat back.
So far, everything we’ve received from Kurgo has been a big WIN for us. I think our next purchase will be a new harness as Kemper tore part of his current one that, surprisingly, has last for a year. Seriously, he destroys EVERYTHING.
Kurgo provided us with the Wander Pail and the Treat Bag, but we purchased the car seat protector ourselves, to try and review. All opinions are my own.
