Joyride Harness, leash, and seatbelt bundle

4. Joyride Harness, Heavy Duty Leash, & Seatbelt Bundle

As pet parents, we know that the key to making our fur babies lives the best they can be is by having the best for them. 

That’s why an amazing gift this Valentine’s Day for either a loved one with a pup or for your own beloved fur baby is this Joyride Harness, heavy duty leash, and seatbelt bundle! It is the must-have pack for every pet parent.

The Joyride Harness is loved by pet parents everywhere for how safe, secure, durable, and easy it is to get on and off (see number 1 for more details!).

Leashes are absolute necessities for pups, but it’s easy to end up with one that isn’t the greatest quality, falls apart easily, or worse has a clip that doesn’t work properly. The last place you want a leash to go wrong is when you’re out on a walk with your pup and they could make a great escape.

This heavy duty dog leash features high quality and durable craftsmanship along with two handles, one at the 6 foot end of the leash and one just a foot away from the clip. This allows better control of your pup and easier training!

And we all know about the importance of car safety, but how many of us buckle in our fur babies every time we get into the car?

With the dog safety seat belt you can keep your pup safe for every drive (as well as away from your center console!) The important thing to note about these seat belts is that they should always be connected to a dog harness, as they could be a choking risk if attached to a collar! Dogs under 25 pounds are recommended to be bucked into a car seat instead of directly to the seatbelt fixture.

All in all, this is a great bundle for all of your pup’s needs and will show them all of the love by making sure they’re happy, healthy, and safe.

5. The 2-in-1 Leash Seatbelt Combo

If your special someone is a lover of all things cool and innovative this could be just the thing for them!

This 2-in-1 leash seatbelt combo combines the durability and design of Joyride Harness’s heavy duty leash with both handles, along with a hidden seatbelt attachment so you never get caught without a way to secure your pup in the car.

As we said in number 4, car safety for dogs is super important. Research showed that even at a low speed accident, a dog can be thrown through a windshield at 20 miles an hour or more. On top of that, unsecured pups can be major sources of distraction and distracted driving is dangerous driving.

This leash is built from heavy duty nylon that is much thicker and stronger than a standard leash with the bonus of sewn in reflective material, for that added layer of safety on night walks.

Things to keep in mind are that any time you use a pup seatbelt, make sure to attach it to a harness. It can cause them to choke if you ever get into an accident and it’s attached to a collar around their necks. Additionally, if your fur baby is under 25 pounds, it's safest to attach them to their dog seat and not directly to the seatbelt fixture.

Overall, this is an amazing gift to show some love especially if your loved one already has a dog harness or you want to spring for something a little more innovative!

6. A Wise Woman Once Said 11 oz. Mug

What would a celebration of Valentine’s Day be without a little Galentine’s Day sprinkled in? And there is no better way to show some gal pal love than with this fantastic mug from Woof and Watson! 

We don’t know about you, but starting the day on the right cup is an absolute necessity. And there is nothing we’d rather look at than our fur baby bright and early.

This 11 ounce mug features the words: “A wise woman once said f*** it I'm getting a Labrador, and she lived happily ever after.” There is a spot where you can add a photo of your own pup surrounded by hearts, and you can customize the breed mentioned!

With 100% ceramic construction with dye that is blended into the actual ceramic itself, this mug will last your love or gal a good many mornings.

7. Double Dog Power Leash

And there’s no better way to do that than with Joyride Harness’s double dog power leash

8. All You Need is Love and a Dog… Pillow

What’s almost as good as cuddling your fur baby? Cuddling a pillow with your fur baby’s face on it, of course!

We absolutely love this adorable pillow from Woof and Watson for anyone’s special someone. It reads, “All you need is love and a dog named…” and is fully customizable with a big spot for your fur baby as well as your fur baby’s name. And for extra added cuteness, a big paw print.

"All you need is love and a dog named..." pillow

This pillow comes in one of two sizes, 14 x 14 inches or 16 x 16 inches, and is made of 100% soft cotton. Not only that, but the pillow comes complete - meaning that the fluffy inside is included, so you won’t have to buy anything else!

While the plushy insert is machine washable, it’s recommended that the cover is spot cleaned.

As with all of their products, Woof and Watson hand-inspects each one before sending it along to their customers so you can be sure you’re getting the best possible quality. Each month they also donate $3,000 to $5,000 to Dogs Without Borders, a nonprofit that has placed over 6,000 rescue dogs into loving homes.

This “All You Need is Love and a Dog” pillow is a super cute and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift that not only gives but gives back and is sure to be a hit.

9. Matching Dog Harness & Mask Bundle

Joyride Harness has over 40,000 five star reviews and is a top pick by dog lovers everywhere because it’s safe, secure, durable, and easy to put on and take off.

With adjustable straps and fleece-style padding, your pup will be snug and comfortable in this dog harness while still maintaining a full range of motion.

A secure fit means that you don’t have to worry about your beloved fur baby damaging their neck or vulnerable throat area if they pull or get startled. And with the reflective strip you can walk any time, day or night, resting a little easier that your pup will be more visible.

With three leash attachment ring options, you have options that allow help with walking issues like tangled leashes or pulling. And with the EZ grip handle, you can have immediate control over your pup just in case, because while we never want to think the worst will happen we always want to be prepared.

Add in a wide array of colors and patterns - plus a matching swanky mask - and it’s the perfect gift for that special someone!
