Every year, the most difficult part of the Editors’ Choice Awards is narrowing down our favorites from a field of noteworthy contenders. This year proved to be no exception. Manufacturers submitted a variety of products, from tasty tidbits to colorful playthings and functional items that make life easier for both pet and owner.
We’ve whittled down the pile of submissions that we received to about 50 of our favorites. Now, we have our work cut out for us evaluating these new products even further in an effort to determine which of these finalists are most deserving of a place in retailers’ assortments. After we’ve judged the finalists’ products, we will announce the overall Editors’ Choice Award winners in our January 2020 issue.
We've named finalists in four categories: dog, cat, dog and cat, and aquatics and exotics. Below, you'll find the finalists in the dog category. Finalists in the cat category can be found here, while dog and cat category finalists can be found here, and aquatics and exotics category finalists can be found here.
