6 super Marvel-themed finds for your dog

He may not be able to spin a Spidey web, but he’s got your heart all wrapped up with more tensile strength than Spider-Man’s web. His agility, strength, and endurance would make him a natural to be Captain America’s sidekick (if he had one). And, even though you keep his nails trimmed to an acceptable length, his animal-keen senses would amaze even Wolverine himself.

We’re talking about your dog, of course — the furry superhero in your life with whom you have amazing adventures. And if you’re team Marvel, there’s no reason your dog shouldn’t be, too. No matter which superhero you prefer, we’ve got the intel on the dog gear your pet needs.

Buckle-Down Polyester Dog Collar

Secret identities aside, reveal your dog for the superhero he is in your life with this polyester collar featuring Marvel characters. The 1-inch-wide collar comes in small, medium, and large sizes and buckles on like a seat belt for a secure fit. Use the handy measuring guide on the Chewy site to determine the best fit for your dog.

Buckle-Down Standard Dog Leash

If you’re going to reveal your pup’s secret identity with a superhero dog collar, you might as well go all in and get the leash, too. This one is 4 feet long and 1 inch wide and made from durable polyester to last a long time. Premium printing means the colors and images of your favorite Marvel characters will look like a walking comic strip for years to come.


When his superhero cape is at the cleaners, you’ll want to have this T-shirt on hand as a backup. Displaying the Marvel logo, this polyester/cotton sleeveless T-shirt is easy to get on and off. And available in sizes from extra small to double extra-large, it’s perfect for dogs of all sizes. Make sure you consult the size chart to pick the right fit for your pet. The shirt also is washer and dryer safe, so your super pet can always look his best when the call for help comes in.

The Hulk Round Plush Squeaky Dog Toy

Who says the Hulk is indestructible? With this fun squeaky plush toy, your dog can play supervillain and playfully punish the Hulk during wild romps through the household. The squeaker and crinkle paper inside the soft, plush covering makes for an exciting battle every time. But beware: While this toy is designed for small, medium, or large dogs, it isn’t meant for heavy chewers.

Groot Plush with Rope Squeaky Dog Toy

What dog doesn’t like a good stick to chew on? With this Groot plush squeaky toy, pet owners and their super-pups get the best of both worlds: a plush toy with two squeakers for fun-tastic chewing and cotton rope legs when you’d rather play a game of tug. As always, supervise your dog during play. The corduroy cover makes for a durable, toy but it’s not recommended for heavy chewers.

Walking Captain America Costume

This step-in costume is designed to make your pup look like he’s a walking mini Captain America! With its arms, shield, and headpiece, your superhero dog is sure to turn heads (and maybe elicit some playful pleas for help) when he wears this costume on your walk around the block. Plus, there will be no messing with your kids at Halloween when Cap accompanies them on their trick-or-treat rounds through the neighborhood. The polyester costume is available in small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes. Consult the size chart to make sure you get the right fit.

We can’t explain how dogs become superheroes. Only pet parents understand their superpowers and how to activate them. What we can tell you is, dogs are a Marvel-ous part of our lives and they deserve to be celebrated for each dynamic aspect of their unique personalities.

So, whether you fill their toy boxes with superhero plushies, choose to outfit them in an appropriate character costume, or subtly show your fandom with themed collars and leashes, we applaud you. Like the Marvel superheroes we love, our dogs are with us in our darkest moments and inspire us to be better people. We’re sure Stan Lee would agree — pet parents are among the luckiest in the world because we have such loyal furry friends.

As a pet parent, there’s a lot you'll hear about spaying and neutering. Many organizations campaign for education and affordable access to these procedures, but this is largely for the purpose of population control and not necessarily for the health of the dog. Still, having your dog neutered — or castrated — can have many benefits.
Are there signs your dog needs to be neutered? Will they benefit from this procedure? No matter how many questions you have, or how close you are to making a decision, chatting with your veterinarian is the surest way to make the right choice for your individual dog. Until then, here are a few facts and myths about neutering male dogs to help inform you, and maybe even sway your decision.

Will neutering change my dog?
Although neutering your male dog has many health benefits, they’ll experience only minor physical changes. You’ll definitely notice the absence of their testes, as well as some surgical scars, but these will become almost invisible as your buddy heals.
The biggest differences will come directly following the surgery, but most of these will be temporary, too. A dog does not lose his personality or spunk when he gets fixed, but the absence of testosterone does come with a few behavior changes, says Santa Cruz Veterinary Clinic — most of the time, that is.

Is your dog's nose warm? Here are common reasons for it
Closeup of a dog nose and smile

Your dog's nose is the best tool on the market for sniffing and tackles many different activities throughout the day. The snout acts as the daily news, collecting scents like scraps of information to build a picture of the environment. It often doubles as a communication device, nuzzling the human hand to elicit a response. A dog's nose serves as an internal thermostat, helping regulate body temperature.

Since it's a temp controller, a dog’s nose can be warm, cold, wet, or dry, depending upon a few factors — the time of day, Fido's level of activity, and weather conditions. If you've ever asked yourself, "Why is my dog's nose warm?" —  forget what you think you know. Below, we'll answer what it means when a dog's nose is warm.

This video proves the dog pool is better than the dog park
Your pups could enjoy a dog pool day just like the ones in this video

If you're a pup parent, you've probably spent some time at the dog park, but have you ever given the dog pool a shot? As you might imagine, this takes the concept of the dog park and brings water into the equation. As this video proves, there's nothing cuter than watching a stream of pooches dive right into the water to play. It's truly a sight worth seeing.

This TikTok proves dog pool day can beat dog park day and is perfectly titled "Pool Day for the Pups." It opens on a shot of a big fenced-in pool with some buddies waiting excitedly outside. Once the gate is open, they pour in to start splashing in the water, swimming around, and, of course, barking madly. The welcoming setup even has some helpful mats on the edges to assist anyone with slippery feet getting in and out. A quick cut shows us another dog pool, this one indoors and filled with toys to help the happy games along. Again the furry friends make a mad dash in to play. It's clear that every single pup in the video is living their best life.
