“Hey dog you need a lift? Thats exactly what your pooch will be doing by taking a lift in the worlds first prototype of a dog stairlift.
Not only will this take the place of having to carry your FAT heavy, tired dog up and down the stairs, but this will help conserve energy of elderly dogs and dogs with physical disabilities. In fact, this product would also be great for seniors who have trouble getting rover up and down the stairs. But will this ever come to market? Hummmm…we are waiting.
Hows it work?
This doggy stairlift is activated by your dogs paw once the dog is sitting on the electronic platform. The price of this “Stair of the Dog 2022” is $8,000. This is such a unique invention for dogs, yes but maybe the stairlifts should just be used for the elderly. I mean whats next life alert for dogs? Hmm well I guess anything is possible.

Another trend spotted at SuperZoo? Cycling with your best friend! We got an EXCLUSIVE look at Sidekick by Sleepypod.
We are BIG fans of Sleepypod and could not survive airline travel without our Sleepypod ATOM.
So we were really excited to see the Sidekick. Sidekick is designed as a stable frame to hold a Sleepypod pet carrier with your pet inside. The front loading bike rack uses the center of gravity right above the front tire for maximum stability rather than the handlebars that can sway and therefore be unstable.
The Sidekick will be available soon so keep your eyes peeled for the launch!
If you have multiples or if your pet is a tad too big to ride in an Atom AND you are a fan of relentless Italian Design the Petego Comfort Wagon is for you.
Smartly designed suspension, with a marked emphasis on safety, this wagon will open up a whole new world of activities for you and your pets!
Safety first! Especially when you have precious cargo onboard. Whether you’re taking a trip down the block or headed toward a faraway place, your riding companion is sure to appreciate a custom made helmet from Rock Star Puppy.
You can choose from a wide selection of airbrush designs OR create one of your own! Our favorite? The BadAss Mohawk helmet!
And when you are out and about don’t forget to HYDRATE! The Troff Pouch Hydration bottle was one of the smartest products we saw at Superzoo! Troff is State of the Art Hydration for Dogs. The twist off top, non-spill valve, and fold to go anywhere approach creates a ‘no excuse’ policy for maintaining proper hydration and preventing dehydration. AND it’s eco friendly! The Tröff™ pouch reduces landfill waste by over 90% compared to water bottles of the same volume. It is reusable until damaged.
Japanese bag brand Porter has made another pet product collaboration – this time with super-cool pet product design studio Flavor. Porter’s previous collab effort of a dog collar from streetwear designer Original Fake turned into a big hit. But this time around Porter has gone to their strength (bags) and designed a innovative dog carrier for the urban pup on the go. The “Dog Ruck” is a high quality backpack carrier made out of water repellent cloth and reinforced with double stitching. The interior includes a lead hook – to prevent unexpected jump-outs – as well as a padded bottom for the dogs comfort. For the smaller dogs there is also zipper netting to contain your pooch while out and about. While I don’t think I would hop on a motorcycle with my dog on board this way – it does offer a much easier method for moving around a city or traveling short distances. Currently the Flavor x Porter Dog Ruck is only available in Japan and it costs $460+USD (52,000 Yen). But with the ever expanding pet fashion marketplace in the US and Porter’s interest in producing cool dog products – it is only a matter of time before they make it to North America and Europe.
When Hollywood actor/model, Jeanne Chinn purchased a messenger bag with an appliqué of a sleeping kitty on it she had no idea the stir it would cause., Jeanne had grown tired of hearing people exclaim, “I would kill for a bag like that with a DOG on it!” That was her “Ah-Ha!” Moment and Rescue Me Totes was born.
Driven by a desire to create casual couture bags with a cause she designed and manufactured the bags herself. These fabu totes serve as an everyday carry-all and have a leash clip so you can clip your favorite furry friend inside.
When my bag arrived you could hear my scream of “OMG GORGEOUS!!!” from New York to L.A! The signature golden paws immediately caught my eye as well as the luxurious micro mink lining that snaps out and can be replaced with a black signature lining. Everything about this bag screams couture right down to the jeweled dog collar on the silhouetted dogs and cat!
The best part of all? For every Rescue Me Tote sold a portion of the proceeds go to worthy animal charities. We heart Jeanne for that!
The bags come in Flirty Feline, Te Quiero Chihuahua, Doggie Style and I Love New Yorkie. The bags cost $210 and a potion of the proceeds go to animal charities.
If you’ve made it this far into the holiday season your gift well is probably running dry for new and interesting ideas. Another holiday present option for the fashionable “dog-minded” person on your list is the Bagira bag series. A straight forward and clean-lined series of dog motifs decorate the exterior to these handy on-the-go bags. The series ranges (see below) from a shoulder strapped Poodle model to an extra long Daschund model to a standard bag edition (with the non-breed specific Bagira logo). Our European readers definitely get the better of this deal as the bags range in price from 80-155 Euros ($120-$230 USD) and they are available directly from Bagira on their site.
It’s rare day when the Pupstyle staff finds a dog carrier worthy of travel with our own precious pooch, but this cutie by Canini Pet is irresistible. It is a nice update on the classic bowling bag design with a handy outside pocket for mommy’s money and a small treat or two. The carrier also appears to be less of a back wrenching torture device that most dog carriers on the market. Three sides are vented for air and the inside is lined with stain resistant cotton (major bonus) with a removable faux fur padded pillow. They also went the extra step and lined the pull out chin rest with fax fur and included a collar latch to prevent suicide leaps while you’re on the go. The leather is a sturdy pebble grain and comes in a Punch Pink/Preppy Green and an Azure Blue/Chocolate Brown. Not a bad deal for $350 given all the finishing details included with this bag. And it is available to buy direct from the designer.
Manly Muttsack. If you’re a dude who has ever tried to find a straight-forward carrier for your dog, no doubt you were left puking over the abundance of pink fluffy sissy sacks at the pet store. Well Mister Macho, now you can dismiss any fear of being “Puppy-Purse Punked” at the dog run . CreatureCouture.com has the best in butch bags for both men and women to carry their dog in style. They have two fabulous “man bags” to check out, but our favorite is the “Hemmingway”. It’s a leather bag with a messenger style flap and roll up doors on both ends. Plus, it has pockets for a cell phone, business cards and a pen (essential for high level dog run schmoozing and play date networking). It comes in Noir and Chestnut and carries up to 12 lbs. of hound hunkiness. It’s hot diggity!!!
