2. Hand Sanitizer
Where are you going to wash your hands on the walk after you just scooped up your Doggie’s poop?It’s also nice to offer the hand sanitizer to the stranger that just petted your doggie or played with him/her.
3. Allergy Information
Just like humans, Doggies have allergies. It’s always advisable to get them checked and keep that list of allergies on you, all the time. In emergency situations, it helps your Doggie as well as the doctor seeing him/her.
Excited Doggies can sometimes harm themselves or others unknowingly. It is always advisable to have some kind of first help kit or at least bandages that you can wrap around the injury till you see a doctor.

6. Wet wipes
Wiping off the mess your Doggie made in the car will be a tedious task, but with Wet Wipes it can be accomplished faster. Wet tissues will also come in handy if you need to wipe your Doggie’s paws before going in a pet friendly shop or a friend’s home after a rainy day!
