You love your pup and you want them to be as happy, healthy, and comfortable as possible. One of the ways you can take great care of them – and spoil them at the same time – is by equipping them with the best dog accessories. Here are five reasons you should find the right accessories for your dog.
Many people don’t travel with their dogs because it’s simply inconvenient. For example, let’s say you were spending the night at a friend’s house. Your dog would be in a new environment and never get to sleep – or so you think.
A simple solution is a dog sleeping bag. It allows them to burrow down and stay warm and provides them the comfort they’re used to. When you let them use it at home they’ll immediately identify it on the road as something that means it’s time for bed.
You want a dog that’s well behaved and does what you say but getting to that point can be harder than many dog owners are prepared for. The good news is that dog accessories put the tools in your hand that you need to train your dog.
A great example is a dog harness. Not only are they safer than collars and leashes, since they don’t risk neck or spinal injury, but they make it almost effortless to train a dog not to pull when on a lead. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
Many dog parents don’t even consider taking their dogs on their outdoor adventures but the reality is that with the right accessories many dogs can thrive camping, hiking, hanging out at the beach, and taking part in many other activities.
It really is all about the accessories. For example, if you want to take your dog hiking then you’ll need to invest in dog boots that protect their feet and help them keep a grip on the rocks and trails.
There’s really no question about it: dog sweaters are adorable! There are many dog sweater patterns that can showcase your dog’s unique personality. Remember that these sweaters are also a great way to keep your smaller dog warm or to keep your short hair dog comfortable.
Many people don’t realize that dogs can get skin cancer just like people do. As with their human counterparts, dogs get it from excessive exposure to the sun. Unfortunately, the sunscreen you use likely contains zinc oxide, which is deadly to dogs.
The good news is that there is dog sunscreen that can be applied to noses, tips of ears, bellies, and other areas of your furry friend’s bodies. They’re the perfect way to ensure both the health and comfort of your four-legged best friend.
Dog owners may have wondered whether their dog needs boots to protect their paws from the cold and ice. It will depend on the individual dog’s cold tolerance as well as the breed and how long the dog will be outside.
Online research reveals the earliest mention of dog boots in the October 1972 issue of Field and Stream... Vets agree that their paws are vulnerable to serious injury during a sled race such as the Iditarod. Or any activity outside, especially in icy or snowy conditions.
