Tired of lugging around Fido's doggy bag? Now you can make him carry his own with Alite Designs' Kung Fu Dog Collar. A sleek alternative to the bulky backpacks that make dogs stomp their paws in protest, Kung Fu's no-frills design is smart simplicity with a zippered pouch attached to the collar.
It can't carry a full dog bone, but it can hold the essentials: a dog bag, a key or even treats for later. And the pouch's low-profile design means your pooch won't even notice it's there (a plus for longer hikes and runs or particularly sensitive pups).
Woven nylon fabric is wear- and tear-resistant, making it durable for even very active dogs. Mesh design is also breathable, dries quickly and is easy to clean. The collar's buckle is made from plastic and has a quick-release design for safety. It also includes a steel D-ring for easy leash attachment. Zipper pouch has a small bungee pull cord.
Available in brown, tan, gray and red. Available in two sizes: medium, which is 12 to 16 inches in length, and large, which is 16 to 24 inches in length. Purchase online at the Alite Designs website, www.alitedesigns.com or www.rei.com. Price is $18.
