If you’re anything like me, your pets are like your babies. My black lab Nina has been my partner in crime since 2005 and she’s definitely a big ol’ spoiled princess. With that in mind, I thought it’d be fun to share a few of my favorite doggie essentials. No doubt, we have our favorite toys and pet gear, and our favorite go-to places to score the goods. Do you have any doggie favorites? I’d love to hear what you and your furbabies love! Here are my picks for doggie essentials…
Pawprint Blanket 1 of 10Of course, a comfy doggie blanket is a must, too. I love this one from Crate & Barrel.
Get one from Crate & Barrel.
Doggie Bed 2 of 10Cozy dog beds rule! I like LLBean's dog beds, which are durable, customizable and available in neutral colors that work with most decor.
Get yours from LLBean for $79.
Kong 3 of 10Hands down, the Nina's favorite toys are her Kong and Kong Wubbas. Plus, these toys are super durable and can hold up to active chewers.

Food Canisters 4 of 10I love all things Harry Barker, but their dog food storage containers are a favorite.
Get yours from Harry Barker for $12.
Gentle Leader 5 of 10For overzealous pups, a Gentle Leader is your best friend. Your arms will thank you.
Get yours from Amazon for $12.10.
Milk Bone 6 of 10Typically I try to keep my girl to organic treats and food. (Yes, I'm one of those dog moms.) That said, Nina loves Milk Bones so I allow her to indulge from time to time!
Get some at PetsMart.
Pawz 7 of 10Pawz dog boots keep feet dry and free from mud, salt, anti-freeze and ice. A must for doggies in cold and/or wet climates!
Get yours from Pawz.
Metal Dog Bowls 8 of 10Good old-fashioned, durable but still sleek stainless steel dog bowls are the only way to go with a lab in the house!
Get yours from Cabela's for $13.99.
Teddy Bear 9 of 10Nina loves something soft and cuddly to snuggle with or to tear to bits. It's just how she rolls.
Her pick is this teddy bear from PetsMart for $8.99.
Pretty Collar 10 of 10A stylish dog collar is the ultimate must-have!
I love the ones from Kiss My Mutt for $18.
