We all love our pets; though they start as a stranger, it takes just hours for our canine friends to become a member of the family. As well as giving our dogs lots of attention, we also love to buy them treats and accessories. Here are some must-have accessories for your own dog!
When the season changes and you and your dog both resent cold winter walks, what better way to keep their little legs warm than with a pair of leggings? With T.O. Dogswear, you’ll find lots of different designs and leggings in small, medium, and large sizes. As well as keeping them warm, leggings will also prevent dirt, salt, and other nasties from splashing up.
While on the topic of preventing dirt, mud, and other substances from ruining your dog’s fur, another option is to buy a belly bib. Thankfully, these can be worn both under or over a coat and it provides a windproof and waterproof layer when they need it most. These days, you can even get bibs made from recyclable plastic (to remain environmentally friendly!).
Not all accessories are for your dog, some are for you to enjoy too. With this in mind, a laundry bag will allow you to wash all your accessories without worrying about the material or colour. After putting the leggings or belly bib in the special laundry bag, they will last much longer. While on this note, the laundry bag can also be used for your material masks during the pandemic.
Ever walk into the kitchen to find water or food all over the place? We wouldn’t be dog owners if this didn’t happen every so often. To prevent this, go for a high-quality non-slip bowl. Of course, there are all sorts of designs available these days to match the style of your kitchen (or the personality of your dog!).
In Australia, dogs and cats normally need certain details available through the collar, but you can make this into a cute accessory for your dog. For example, the identity tag should contain the owner’s name and contact details, the pet’s name, and information regarding rabies vaccinations. Depending on what you need, you can get tags with their face, name, and even tags that are shaped like a dog bone or paw – the opportunities are limitless.
For those who have had dogs all their lives, you’ll know that they tend to pick a favourite toy. If you haven’t treated them to a chew toy already, now could be the time. If you don’t, they might just decide that their new favourite toy is your own favourite pair of slippers. When choosing a toy, think about the size of your dog (the last thing you want is for them to choke!). If you really want to treat them, take them into the shop and let them choose.
This one makes the list not only because they’re useful accessories, but also because there are many badly made anti-pulling aids. To choose a good product, read customer reviews to ensure you don’t get one that pinches, rubs, or squeezes. With the right accessory, your puppy will be happy while you have the peace of mind that it isn’t harming them.
With this, you have seven fantastic must-have accessories for your dog. While some make laundry easier, others keep them warm in the winter. With all seven, your dog will be the most spoiled pup for many miles!
