Oh summer in the city! Boston is always a wonderful place, but the summer takes things to a whole new level of fun. So while considering your next ventures out into the city, we hope you’ll think of picking up some toys and must-haves for your furry best friend:

Kong Dog SqueakAir Ball Medium 6 Pack


You can’t go wrong with an upgraded, tried and true classic like these tennis balls by KONG. With the added squeak, your dog will be excited and engaged all day long. You’ll never run out of fun with this 6-pack.


Kong Dog Belly Flops Starfish


While on the beach, your city dog won’t even glance at any sea critters with this fun toy in their sights. The KONG Belly Flops Starfish has a built-in squeaker, it can float, and with its bright color and cute shape (great for fetch), this is a perfect companion for beach days.


Kong Dog Ballistic Firehose Bottle Tracker Large


Speaking of floating toys, the KONG Ballistic Fire Hose toy is also made for “training, tugging, and fetching.” Place an empty water bottle inside the durable and protective toy to create an added sensory crunch for your pup.

Fabdog Box of Doughnuts


It is so great to sit out on a (dog-friendly) patio for brunch and bottomless mimosas. While your dog can’t enjoy the bottomless mimosas and delicious pastries, they can stop looking at your plate with these fun, squeaky doughnuts by Fabdog. 

Nite Ize LED Necklace


As the summer fun continues, sometimes we look up from our time by a bonfire or outdoor event and realize the sun is setting. But why stay in the dark if you don’t have to? The Nite Ize LED Necklace is a great accessory for your dearest pup. Not only to keep them safe, but also you on those warm, summer night walks. 

And for all those who love to lay out in the park on a warm day, head to the dog park, or hike on the weekends–a must have for your bag is a bug spray for you and your four legged friends. 

For You:


Alibi NYC Citronella & Camphor Organic Insect Repellent


The Alibi NYC Citronella & Camphor Insect Repellent is all natural and smells divine. Made with witch hazel extract, Alibi NYC’s house blend of citronella, lemongrass, and cedarwood essential oils, you can head out into nature with peace of mind. 

For Them:


Wondercide Flea Tick Mosquito Spray


While the Alibi NYC insect repellent is perfect for you, it might not be the best choice for your pet because essential oils may not be safe directly on your pet’s coat (always ask your vet if you’re ever unsure). 

So for a product designed specifically for our pets, this natural spray by Wondercide will not only ward off mosquitoes, but also fleas and ticks. It comes in a variety of scents and sizes, so you’re sure to find one that works for you and your best fur friend.
