Summer is here and while that means you’ll have vacation plans, summer camps and family time, it also means something special for your four legged family. Not only will you be around a little bit more, the options for adventure are endless. Here are some tips and gear to make sure your summer is dog-gone amazing. (See what I did there?)
I have a lot of leashes. I might even have a leash problem. But by new favorite is called Stunt Puppy. It’s an all in one solution for hands free walking or running with your pup. Part of the leash wraps around your waist and clips securely. Then, there is a clip and a leash. The leash has bungee in it so that when your dog isn’t running at exactly the same pace as you, you’re not jostled or yanked. There’s a “traffic loop” on the leash so that you can pull your dog close when you need to. You can even convert the leash to an over the shoulder one. This is awesome for anytime you’d like to have your hands free….hiking, running or just on a walk!
Pride Bites has been one of my favorite doggie gear retailers for years. Their new line of placemats, beds, and hoodies that are CUSTOM made for your dog are just beyond measure. You can pick the patterns, colors, size, and monogram of every item. You can also add your dog’s PICTURE! How amazing is that? You’d think that they would be super expensive for customization like this. However, they are affordable, and more importantly, durable. They stand up to doggie wear and tear! I was able to try out a hoodie, a placemat and a bed. They were all amazing quality….I was impressed with the bed’s softness and the hoodie’s warmth. My doggie loved wearing it, so I’m taking his word for it that it’s comfortable. The placemat is a great way to keep the mess off the floor and when need be, I can wash it in the laundry. Check out PrideBites.com….I promise you’re going to find something you love.
If you’re looking for something that will do doggie double duty, check out Logic Product’s BarkLogic Natural All Purpose Kennel & Coat Spray. Not only does it smell amazing , it’s effective too. Made with all natural ingredients, it’s biodegradable, made in the U.S.A. and animal product free. The all natural oils naturally repel fleas, ticks and other bugs. This is a great addition to your summer dog care routine. It doesn’t feel sticky when you spray it on and the scent isn’t over powering. Most importantly, my dogs seem to like it! They probably REALLY like not being bit by bugs!
Want some new treats, toys and grooming items delivered to your door every single month? Yea, me too. Paw Pack is what you need. Stocked with amazing and high quality items, it’s a surprise and treat for you AND your pets every single month. The contents are high quality, eco friendly, and simply put, amazing. My dogs could smell this was for them and they were pawing at the package before I could open it! With name brands like Kong and EarthBath inside, this box is well worth the price. THIS is the box pet lovers want and need. Finally!
Keep your dogs safe by preventing them from getting loose. Puppy Bumpers prevent your dogs from sneaking through a fence or gate. They are made of 100% cotton and have Polyester Fiberfill stuffing. They have ribbon loops that attach to your dog’s collar so that the bumper can’t sneak over their head. They are even machine washable. Now you never have to worry about your doggie sneaking out!
Travel tips with your pets:
- Updated ID- Check your pets ID tags and Microchip information to ensure they are updated with a current cell phone number. Also, add a second tag that has the address and phone number of where you will be staying when you are traveling.
- Play it Safe-Just in case the worst happens and you have to take your pet to the vet while you are traveling, you want to make sure you have all pertinent information such as important medical history and vaccination records.
- Pack a Bag-Make sure to bring everything your pet may need including an extra leash, their favorite toy, any needed medication, and plenty of food. You don’t want to risk the local pet store not caring the needed things to keep your pup happy! If you have a sensitive pet, you should also pack a couple of containers of your local water since some pets will resist drinking water that tastes different from what they are use too.
- Home away from Home-When you arrive at your destination, give your pet time to adjust to his new surroundings. Take him on a walk. Put his things out. Hang out as he gets use to all of the different sounds and smells. This will help him feel relaxed and calm when you do have to leave him alone.
