Make sure your pooch has as much fun on your afternoon picnics as you do with the Charlybox ($60). Split into halves, the 'box uses one half as a two-liter canteen, while the other features two bowls for water and food. Made of injection-molded shatterproof plastic, it's sure to hold up to even the most playful of pups.
Unless you have a purebred dog and the papers to back it up, you're probably curious to know exactly where your pooch came from. The Canine Heritage Breed Test ($65) lets you do just that, using a DNA-based diagnostic test that can genetically determine the breed composition of your dog. Just use the included DNA CheekSwab to get a sample from inside your dog's mouth, send it in to the company, and 4-6 weeks later you'll have a full Certificate of Breed Analysis that provides a way better understanding of your dog's ancestry.

If your pooch lives a more luxurious life than you, perhaps it would like the Mija Dog Bed ($1370). Made from 10mm thick acrylic and featuring a pillow filled with shredded memory foam that's covered in faux suede, we're pretty sure this bed would be comfy for humans as well — if only they made one big enough.
As long as our golf game still needs work, it can't hurt to find innovative new ways to practice. One of these new ways we've found is the Doggie Driver ($30). It's function is simple — when you take the loaded club for a swing, the tennis ball pops out in the desired direction for your pooch to retrieve. Since there's no contact with the ball on reload, you don't have to deal with a messy, drooled-on ball, and the whole time you'll be practicing your swing. Sweet. [via]
Just because your pet lives indoors doesn't mean it shouldn't have a home to call its own. The Otis and Claude Dwell Pet House ($150) is made from Italian teak veneered plywood and features a soft polyfoam cushion for the interior of the house in either a green or orange cotton fabric. The front of the house is removable for easy access to the cushion, should your little friend have an accident.
