We love our dogs. They aren’t just our furry companions; they are our family. And what is it we do for family? We make sure they have the very best.
Like their owners, dogs have their own cute little habits and eccentricities. Think of the dog that loves to roll around in wet grass, and the other who refuses to even put his little paw on it.
All dogs do seem to have one thing in common though: they love life. How many of us wake up in the morning ready to greet the new day with a smile? That’s something dogs do every day. To show them we appreciate their spunky personalities, here is a list of 7 doggie accessories that’ll make Sparky yelp with joy.
Ruffwear K-9 Float Coat
For the outdoorsy, thrill seeking mutt, the Ruffwear K-9 Float Coat is as essential as for him as a life vest is for you. For dogs who swim off the coast or go out paddling with their human, the Ruffwear K-9 Float acts as a floatation device should they get tired during their swim or fall off the board.
Dog Shedding Brush
Come summer, dogs shed off their winter coats, leaving patches of hair all around the house. To help Fido shed his coat without making a huge mess, brush him with a dog shedding brush. Regular brushing will help to reduce the shed dog hair that seems to accumulate in the corners of every room of the house, and will help you bond even more with your pet.
If you had to wear an article of clothing day in and day out, you’d want it to be comfortable, right? Of course you would. So wouldn’t we want the collar our dogs wear 24/7 to be comfortable too? Leather collars for dogs sold by pet friendly companies like HotDogCollars specialize in durable and well-fitting dog rolled and flat leather collars that form to your pooch’s neck for a comfortable fit.
OurPets Store-N-Feed Adjustable Feeder
As our furry best friend ages, he becomes more arthritic. According to the pet dog care magazine The Bark, as a dog gets older, the cartilage in their joints starts to thin. When the cartilage cells begin to die, they release an enzyme that causes inflammation. We see arthritis most heavily in a dog’s neck and hips. You may find that your older dog isn’t eating as much, and that could be because his food and water bowl are too low to the ground. To help combat this, the OurPets Store-N-Feed Adjustable Feeder allows pet owners to adjust the food bowl height so their dog can eat without pain.
Tri-Fold Pet Ramp
Like the OurPets Store-N-Feed Adjustable Feeder, the Tri-Fold Pet Ramp helps our dogs take care of their bodies. Over time, jumping into the car or on the couch puts pressure on the back and hips of our beloved mutts. The pet ramp helps our dogs to gain access to higher leveled furniture without straining their backs.
When a rainstorm sets in, claps of thunder and lightning can send our more noise sensitive pups into an anxious frenzy. The thunder jacket is a wearable weighted garment that calms dogs who suffer from anxiety, due to sounds, separation or travel stress. The Mother Nature Network, a platform dedicated to sharing news stories about the world, the environment and green living gives the thunder jacket two thumbs up.
Kong Rubber Chew Toy
How could I not end this list with a chew toy? The Canine Journal rates the Kong Rubber Chew Toy in their Top 10 Dog Toys list. For the fiercest of chewers, the chew toy works your pooch’s jaw muscles and even lets you hide a treat inside, teaching your dog how to be a resourceful treat finder.
Share with your dog the simple pleasures of the world, you won’t regret it.
