In this article, I'd like to share 7 of the Best New Products for dogs I found at the Global Pet Expo conference in Orlando Fl, March 2023. Global Pet Expo is one of the largest trade shows for the pet industry in North America. 

Global Pet Expo is presented by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) and the Pet Industry Distributors Association (PIDA). Global Pet Expo is where pet industry companies showcase their products to retailers, distributors, and other members of the trade, as well as members of the media. 

As a Content Creator and Influencer in the pet space, I attended the event as a member of the media. I attended this exciting pet industry trade show to find the best dog toys, dog treats, innovative and interesting dog accessories, and other dog products to share with you!

After scouring the Global Pet Expo show floor, here are 7 of my favorite new and interesting products for dogs that were featured at the show!

PETSAFE 3 in 1 travel harness for dogs. 

We've used the PetSafe Easy Walk no-pull dog harness for many years, for our Siberian Husky dog. We can't live without it! 

PetSafe is one of my favorite brands, and since we travel a lot with our dogs I was really excited about this product! The PetSafe's 3 in 1 dog harness is a versatile harness for dogs that can be used as a standard harness, a no-pull harness, and car safety restraint for dogs. The 3 in 1 dog harness allows me to walk my dog, and keep her safe while riding in the car by attaching the harness to my car's seatbelt. 

Whether you're taking a short ride to the park or Veterinarian, or taking a lengthy road trip with your dog, it's a great everyday harness that can transition to a dog travel safety accessory for the car! In this video, my Husky Icy demonstrates how to use the 3 in 1 dog harness.

Wellness® Supplements for Dogs

I've trusted WellnessPet products for years. My dogs are wild for their WHIMZEES dental chews, and I like several varieties of their dry and wet dog food.  I was delighted to learn that Wellness has introduced a wonderful line of supplements for dogs to help support a dog's overall health and well being! A variety of tasty supplement chews support dog health benefits in 5 different areas; Digestion, Hip and Joint support, Calming, Immune system support, and healthy Skin and Coat supportI can't wait to try them for my dogs!

AnimalBiome is a biotech company offering an innovative pet health solution. Their DoggyBiome and KittyBiome test kits help get to the root of a pet's gut health problems. They  use microbiome technology to assess and restore gut health in dogs and cats. Imbalances in a pet’s gut microbiome are tied to an increased risk of many health issues, including those related to digestion, skin, and body weight.

AnimalBiome’s unique supplements restore key groups of beneficial bacteria that can be lost as a result of parasitic infections and antibiotic exposure. This company's pet health technology generated so much excitement at Global Pet Expo!

ARTIE is the first countertop appliance that brings artisan-inspired and perfectly portioned pet meals that are gently cooked and ready to serve in under 3 minutes, at the touch of a button.

Rubie's costumes for pets

Rubie's is a company we know well. They have a huge store in New York, where we used to live. Every Halloween it was so much fun to see what giant sized characters and costumes were displayed on their massive front lawn!  I was excited to see that they have an enormous line of pet costumes available. 

I got to see an array of their beautiful, quality costumes for dogs, at the show. They have some costumes for large/XL dogs as well, and costumes for cats too!  On their website, you'll find all of Rubies pet costumes from collections like Disney, Paw Patrol, Nickelodeon, Hello Kitty, Marvel, DC Comics, Christmas costumes, and more. They have so many adorable dog costumes!

Should I dress Icy up as Minnie Mouse, or one of the Hocus Pocus characters this Halloween - What do you think? Jessie could probably wear the Jason costume from Friday the 13th, 'cause she's a bit evil LOL!! 

Alaska Puppy Love

As many of you already know, Icy loves Salmon! I was happy to come across Alaska Puppy Love's salmon dog treats at the show. I really enjoyed talking with these guys, learning about the product and their process. 

What I think is unique about this company is that they own the entire product process, end to end. They fish for the salmon in Alaska, process, and package it in-house. There is no middle man throughout the process until distribution.

It was no surprise that Icy loved these salmon treat samples! Their healthy whole salmon skins are currently sold at Costco stores. Here's a video of Icy sampling these yummy Salmon treats.


I had heard a lot about LickiMat, an enrichment tool that can help slow down dogs that eat too fast, can provide calming to dogs, and more. I really wanted one for my dogs, especially Jessie who is pretty hyper and also tends to wolf her food down at lightening speed! I received a few LickiMats to try and I think it's a great product.

LickiMats for Dogs

They have so many varieties of LickiMats, providing dogs with benefits like; slow down eating, provide a calming activity, relieving boredom, use as a training tool, or just a Fun activity! LickiMat has Slow feeder and enrichment products for both dogs and cats. As you can see from this video, Icy certainly enjoyed it!

People love their dogs and other pets like family. The pet industry has been growing by leaps and bounds the last decade or so, and there is no sign of that growth slowing down. I'd like to share some interesting statistics about the pet industry I learned at Global Pet Expo.

In 2023 the APPA National Pet Owners Survey showed that there are about 65.1 million Dogs and 46.5 million cats in U.S households. The majority of pets are owned by Millennials, followed by Gen X-ers, and then Baby Boomers.

In 2022 $136.8 Billion was spent on pets and pet supplies in the U.S. In 2023 that number is expected to top $146 Billion


Here's the breakdown of 2022 pet expenditures

Breakdown (Actual)
Pet Food & Treats                                                         $58.1 billion 
Supplies, Live Animals & OTC Medicine                      $31.5 billion
Vet Care & Product Sales                                             $35.9 billion
Other Services*                                                             $11.4 billion  

Total                                                                $136.8 billion  

*Other Services include boarding, grooming, insurance, training, pet sitting and walking and all services outside of veterinary care
