On a lost dog, having a collar he can easily slip out of may seem counter-intuitive – but actually, it just might be what saves your pet’s life. One stylish option: the custom-fit Tazlab safe-t-stretch collar. Designed without a buckle, the colorful neckwear stays snug when your dog’s leash is attached, thanks to two clasps. But if he should get hooked on a tree branch or fence, it has enough give to let him pull free safely. Even day-to-day the collar can be useful – the stretchy opening easily fits over the head for walk time.

And if you’re not in the market for a collar, Tazlab has another bright item: the foldable, portable “aqua-fur,” a bright silicone bowl that ingeniously “folds up like an origami pumpkin” when not in use. Get a custom-sized safe-t-stretch collar for just $15; bowls are $19 each.
