The Pet Matchmaker’s Favorite Five August 2015

As summer heats up, it’s time for The Pet Matchmaker’s Favorite Five August 2015. This month is chocked full of variety and value.


Woven Multi Colored Mat



These mats are just perfect for water and food bowls! Why opt for a dodgy bit of soggy plastic? When you can have something stylish and easily washable! Suitable for both cats and dogs. Only $11 from


Hippo Toy


At The Pet Matchmaker we love products that are fun but also good for the environment! This hippo by Cycle Dog is made from recycled material, floats, squeaks and has an opening to hide treats. Now that’s what I call a well balanced toy. And so cute! $10-15 at


Found My Animal Carrier


Creating accessories for ‘Adopted animals and their People’, Found Animal is known for their beautiful rope collars and leashes. But, if you have a small dog or cat, this gorgeous waxed cotton carrier is a Must Have! It’s hand crafted in Brooklyn NY, so Chic is the word! $270 at


The Flying Vee Birdhouse 





KoolBird creates wonderful eco-friendly birdhouses from scraps of tropical hardwood. Who knows whether birds appreciate design, but you certainly will enjoy looking at it! $160 at Koolbird’s Etsy shop.


Cow and Bee Hydro Collars



Summer is the time for fun in the sun so you can’t go wrong with the waterproof collars with delightful designs by Hot Dogs All Dressed! I just love these cows and bees, but you can create your own collar from a variety of ornaments and colors. Go forth and get funky! From $19 – $32 at
