18 Weird, Wacky and Crazy Pet Product Designs
We love our pet, we think they are family… We want to give them the best… But check the pet products in this post, you probably will have the same feeling when I prepared this post. I know there is some crazy design, but never thought would go that extreme. Dog wash machine? Bird Harness? Pet love doll? Well… maybe. There’s a couple that might just come in handy, if you enjoy spying the life of bird / ant or walking your fish around…
PetsCell – Call your pet and… bark? [link]
It has some high tech attributes like being waterproof and having a built-in GPS so whenever the dog runs away from you because of a beautiful female dog he saw, you know that the GPS will be useful – can be tracked online or on a 3G cellphone. The device is suppose to be attached to the dog’s collar and there is a special number you can call if you’d like to have a minute or two of conversation with the animal. My tip is: try to bark and not speak human language because he won’t understand.

Fauna Sauna The Fauna Sauna Pro – Radiant Heat Panel for Pets [amazon]
A company called ‘Friends FIR Life’ (I kid you not) has developed a device called the Fauna Sauna which will keep the warmth flowing all day and night. Instead of using light to produce the heat the sauna uses infrared rays to directly heat only the object (your dog or cat) lying directly in front of the device. There are apparently many health benefits to infrared heat too but the biggest advantage is that the harmful rays of the sun that can cause burns and other nasty side effects are avoided.
Autoelex Pet Pavilion – the Ultimate Dog House [link]
Luxury Pet House Or Doggie Death Chamber?
The Korean manufacturer Autoelex has equipped this penthouse for pets with some impressive features. Though it looks a little cramped, it has temperature and humidity control, antibiotic air-filled environment, and carbon filter deodorizer.
A Hot Tub for Dogs [link]
MTI Whirlpools’ Jentle Pet Spa is a Hot Tub for Dogs!!!. Not only is this tub dog-sized for Fido’s bathing pleasure, but it comes with five massaging whirlpool jets. (I don’t even have massaging jets in my bath tub, grumble grumble.) Available extras are your choice of 50 colors and a Fill-Flush whirlpool cleaning system. I wonder if that takes care of the dog fur that doubtlessly gets stuck in the jets?

The PooTrap [link]
The PooTrap is supposed to transfer the responsibility for picking up after your dog from you, the owner, to the dog, the pooper. I won’t go into a long spiel here: it’s an awkward, cumbersome, humiliating, and totally stupid pet product.

If sex toys for dogs are anything more than amusing curios, I’d be surprised… But according to the designer of the Doggie Lover Doll®, they are therapeutic. The Doggie Lover Doll®, a soft rubber toy with a silicone vagina, is now available to order, complete with an “intimate lubricant to increase the life of the doll.”

It prevents pet accidents by giving your dog a designated place to urinate instead of using your carpet or furniture. Pet Park’s triple stage protection allows fluid to pass through the anti-microbial mat. The mat stays high above the liquid in the collection tray because of Pet Park’s elevated grid system.

Pet Gear Happy Trails Pet Stroller for cats and dogs [amazon]
Aren’t dogs supposed to walk on a leash? The last time I checked, babies belong in strollers. Dogs belong walking along quietly beside (or just ahead of) their owners. Since when did the little cuties belong in a stroller of their own?
Anyway, according to manufactory, Pet Gear strollers are a great way to take your pet with you on a long walk through the park, a walk around the block, or maybe even shopping at the mall. They safely contain and protect your pet wherever you go!
