Spring is in the air! We’ve seen the first daffodil sprouting and the mornings are less dark and dreary. We love springtime for its emerging flora. And lengthening days. It’s a time to get outside and make the most of the milder climate after the long winter. This week we’d thought we’d help you prepare for the Springtime months ahead with some accessories that are perfect for this time of year.
New Dog Walking Accessories
Our walks naturally become longer in the Springtime, because who doesn’t love being outside on a glorious spring day? As you may well find yourself heading outdoors more often, It’s the perfect time to upgrade your dogs walking set. The new colours from Ruffwear are so bright and cheerful, your dog won’t want to take them off!
Lightweight Waterproof Dog Jacket
It might be Spring and the temperatures may be rising, but Spring is also famous for April Showers! A lightweight, waterproof dog coat is ideal for this time of year as they won’t overheat your dog but will protect them if the heaves open. We particularly like the Sunshower jacket for exactly that reason. It’s so light you could pack it down easily into a bag when not in use.
Dog Drying Coat
If you don’t already own a dog drying coat, then now is the time to invest. Drying coats aren’t just great after bath time, but are the perfect travel item as you can stow them easily in the car. If you get caught in a downpour you can pop this on your dog when you get back to the car. It will keep your pup warm and stop excessive amounts of water leaking all over your car. A great beach accessory too.
Insect Shield Dog Snood
Whilst we love the Spring, we’re not necessarily the biggest fans of the increase in insects about. Insect Shield have come up with a range of dog products including these snoods which protect from all kinds of insects including flies, ants and mosquitoes. If you go walking through woodland with your dog you need one of these!
Throwing Dog Toys
Spring is the perfect time to get active with hour dog; not just for walks, but for playtime in the garden too. We have a plethora of throwing toys in our shop from brands including KONG, Chukit and Beco. Find your favourite and get outside for serious throw and retrieve fun!
