**3. Dog-e-Tag **
In this digital world, even the traditional dog tag has gone high-tech. The Dog-e-Tag isn't much bigger than a typical metal ID, but it lets you program up to 40 lines of information about your pal, letting you make updates (such as your new address) as need be. And it can fit much more detail (like medical issues) than a traditional tag. It comes in a sturdy waterproof housing with a two-year battery. $40; 805-652-2155; www.dog-e-tag.com

At 5 pounds, it's easy to break down and transport. $40; 800-835-3278; www.coleman.com

**6. Bass Pro Shops Microlight Spinning Combo **
