The arrival of Spring is always welcome after three long months of Winter. Longer days, milder weather and the blooming of plants all make for lovely dog walking conditions. It’s the perfect time to make the most out of the great outdoors. We still have to contend with those pesky April showers though. Don’t be deterred from an adventure outside if you think the heavens may well open; instead read our guide to keeping your pup nice and dry through the wetter Spring months.
Our Rainy Day Essentials for Dogs:
1. Dog Coat
A good dog coat is a must for smaller breeds who feel the cold, but also practical for larger dogs in inclement weather. Our range includes the doggy pac-a-mac which is ideal if you get caught in a downpour. It can be folded down for ease of transport and then can be worn only when needed. Other styles such as the quilted country coat and tweed dog coats may not offer the same waterproof capabilities, but will give some water resistance whilst keeping your dog protected from the wind and cold.
2. Drying Coat
Don’t despair if your dog gets caught in a downpour. Our lovely range of dog drying coats and mitts from Ruff & Tumble will help dry your dog. The coat in particular is a great way to get your pup dry whilst also offering a layer of warmth. Available in a range of colours and sizes to suit all dogs. Not only great after a rainy day walk, they are also handy to use after bath time.
3. Car Boot Mat
The roll up mats from Tweedmill are a handy item to keep in the car. Offering protection to your cars interior furnishings, they are ideal for wet, muddy paws. Sit your dog on the mat whilst wearing their drying coat and they will be comfortably dry in no time at all and your car furnishings will stay clean too! Alternatively, the waterproof crate mat in Green or Navy is great for the car too, but can also be used in your dog’s crate or kennel.
Make the most of Spring with your Dog!
So make the most of Spring as it develops. Wet weather can put a bit of a dampener (no pun intended!) on outdoor activities, but don’t be put off every time it rains. With one or two of these products, your pup will be able to enjoy his outdoor adventures without getting uncomfortably wet and cold.
