Top 16 Summer Dog Products in 2020




On extreme hot days, it is vital that your dogs have constant access to both fresh water and shade as heat stress can develop extremely quickly. Whenever possible, allow your pets to stay inside the house and share the air conditioning or electric fans.

Of course, NEVER leave your dog in a hot car - even with the windows down - as heat stress and death can occur within 6 minutes.

There are many ways you can help your dog enjoy these hot days and here is our pick of innovative and life-saving pet accessories that will take your dog through the summer months in comfort and style.



To keep your pooch cool and entertained during the summer heat, simply add water to the Lexi & Me Cooling Toy Popsicle, exclusive to PETstock.

Freeze it overnight and let your dog play with it while it defrosts so they too can enjoy a refreshing ‘popsicle’ in the hot Australian sun. 

Available in pink, blue or turquoise, this cooling toy works to keep your four- legged friend safe and comfortable throughout summer.

The upper (this elevated drinking dish is great for senior or arthritic pets) and lower dishes provide two drinking areas for your pets, and the open design makes it easily accessible. Dual patented free-falling streams add oxygen for freshness and encourage pets to drink more.
