Are You a Dog Parent? What's Inside Your Pocket?

By JennaDrady. | Dog Info

The other day, I planned on washing my coat, and of course, the first thing you do when you wash your coat is to empty the pockets. 

The things I found in there made me laugh, and I thought it would be a fun idea for an article. 

My pockets have officially gone to the dogs.

Here's what I found in my pockets:

  1. Poop bags
  2. More poop bags
  3. Dog training treats
  4. LED lights for their collars at night
  5. Lip Balm (For those super cold days)
  6.  Rock collection (This one actually belongs to my youngest daughter)
  7. FUR
  8. Clicker, which I haven't used in ages

This got me thinking... when we leave the house with our dogs, what are some essentials we should always bring with us? I think the answer to that would depend on how long you were going out for. 

Out for a walk in the summer?

Here's what I have on my list:

  1. Poop bags
  2. Water
  3. Portable water dispenser 
  4. Treats

Our for a weekend trip ( or longer)?

Here's what I have on my list:

  1. Poop bags
  2. Portable water dispenser 
  3. Water... if you aren't able to get any while your out traveling.
  4. First aid kit. You never know what could happen while you're out for a duration of time with your dog, and its best to be prepared. 
  5. Emergency number for a vet clinic 
  6. Bed/blanket for your dog
  7. Food
  8. Treats 

Whether you are out for a walk, the weekend or a full on trip, it is so important to be prepared for your dog's sake. And let me tell you... there is nothing worse than going for a walk and realizing you forgot poop bags!! Fill your pockets, be a dog parent

I would love to hear from you!

What sort of things do you have in your dog parent pockets?

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

This is my 2nd seat cover from 4knines and love them both. The product and service were both fantastic.


Repeat customer VERY satisfied.

We have made several purchases from 4Knines and are VERY satisfied with products (cargo liner, back seat cover, bucket front seat cover...). I volunteer at a shelter and take dogs offsite daily. Always a Pleasure doing business with 4Knines. Highly recommend.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.

New truck seat cover and side panels

I really do like the seat cover and door side panels. The side panels are a must as the Beagle mix puts her feet on the doors. Every now and again someone comes up with a nice product that works well, has quality in its materials, and is well engineered. These are those. I am super satisfied.

Great fit, Great look, Stays in Place

I really like the look of this cover on my front bucket seat. You can't tell it's to protect the seat from the dog! It's very nice looking and fits great. Most importantly, it stays in place! My dog is wiggly, up and down, looking out the windows; and this seat cover doesn't mind. Do make sure you watch the video and carefully follow the installation instructions. I did not at first; and Support was Wonderful in helping me figure out what I was doing incorrectly.
