For new cars, the auto industry has the Detroit Auto Show, for clothing, there is Fashion Week in New York, and for the pet industry there is the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, the largest annual trade show, which features 1,000 product exhibitors and more than 3,000 new products.

Here are some of our favorite finds for dogs at this year’s show, held March 12-14:

1. Petmate Dig and Burrow Bedding

Dogs love to dig and make comfy nests in blankets, towels or whatever is available. Building on that behavior, this new bed has gathered plush fabric that lets dogs paw, dig and snuggle in the loose fabric to make just the right spot to snooze, promoting a den-like sensation.

  • Orthopedic bed, 27’’ x 36’’, $74.99
  • Lounger, 24’’ x 20’’, $49.99
  • Lounger, 30’’ x 24’’, $64.99

We trade photos of our favorite pets with family and friends all the time, now this nifty new device from PetSafe lets you check in on your pets, and give them a treat, but also you can let your wired friends do the same thing and even post and share photos and videos of them on Facebook. $199

3. SolvIt Deluxe Car Safety Harness and Tether

This padded safety harness and tether have been crash tested to federal government safety standards, which few products can boast. Comfortable and stylish, what is different is that this new product costs a fraction of what you would pay for other crash-approved safety gear. Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large, starting at $28

According to the manufacturer this is a new product. We find no mention of this product on the Center for Pet Safety website, or in their latest 2013 safety product

The Solvit harness designs were proven to be unsafe by the Center for Pet safety. Please do not just take the manufacturer's false claims as truths. Using this can seriously injure or kill dogs in cars. Check with The Center for Pet Safety for details. This is just a walking harness with some false safety claims. Beware!
