Gear of the Year

Our top picks for the best new dog products.

DOG FANCYIt’s that time of year again, when we comb through the myriad of new dog products to find the latest and greatest stuff for our annual DOG FANCY Editors’ Choice awards. And with more than 100 submissions, we had our work cut out for us. But we gleefully rose to the challenge, keeping our eyes open for the most wag-worthy goods that make owners’ lives easier and dogs’ lives better.

There were 16 winners this year; each product earned our seal of approval by offering innovative solutions to everyday problems or giving new life to an old idea.

And speaking of giving new life to things, we thought it would be fun to give our local shelter dogs a chance at a new career as doggie models. These amazing rescue dogs, courtesy of the Irvine Animal Care Center in Irvine, Calif., dropped by our studio to give the goods a go, flash a smile, and bring cheer to us all. We had a fantastic time with them, but we have even more fantastic news: Every single dog has found a new home!
