Pamper man's (or woman's) best friend on National Dog Day with these toys, treats, and trinkets for your most loyal companion. Or, if you think your pup is spoiled enough, make a donation to a local or national animal rescue organization to help other lucky dogs find their forever homes.

1. Dog Pod 2.0

Give your pampered pooch a stylish place to rest -- when he's not sleeping on your bed -- with the Dog Pod 2.0 from Vurv Design. The sleek, semi-cylindrical shape creates a cozy curve for your dog's afternoon nap, while the birchply outer adds an artistic edge to your living area. (The company also makes dog feeders, traditional pet beds, and eye-catching dog crates.)

2. Custom dog bowl

Pop Doggie's custom ceramic dog bowl is a colorful way for even picky pups to enjoy their dinner. The white dish can be personalized with your pet's name (or choose a phrase like "nom.nom.nom" or "slurp.slurp.slurp"). Get two labeled food and water, or buy one for each of your dogs for a perfectly coordinated feeding area.

3. Swarovski Crystal Collars

4. MetroPawlitan Wool Dog Coat

Make chilly fall mornings and cold-weather walks a little more comfortable with a grey tweed dog coat from MetroPawlitan. The coat is lined with black wool and secured with a Velcro fastener across the stomach and around the neck; two decorative wooden toggles add a preppy finishing touch for frosty days.

5. West Paw Design Hemp Dog Toys

West Paw Design's line of hemp dog toys includes three fun shapes -- an elephant, dog, and dinosaur -- all handmade from anti-microbial hemp and recycled polyester. The toys are filled with stuffing made from recycled bottles and can be machine washed and air dried to keep them feeling (and, more importantly, smelling) as good as new.
