They come in a large range of our classic prints and fit nicely in our L&L deluxe crates.
Trixie Car Seat For Dogs - If you have a smaller dog, you may want them to sit in the car with you. You still have to ensure that they are secure though, and this car seat is just perfect. It straps in using a seat belt and means your dog can sit with you and see out of the window as you travel. Just make sure you have a suitable travel harness such as the Ruffwear Front Range Harness and that it’s safely attached to the strap in the booster seat.
Lords & Labradors Bamboo Drying Coat - A drying coat has so many uses and is a practical accessory to have in a number of situations. We love to take them on our travels for any time our dogs might need drying off after a walk. It might be for use after a dip in the sea or a lake, or it might be to put on your dog after a rainy walk. A drying coat will wick the moisture away from your dog and help to keep them warm whilst they dry off. Our drying coats are made from bamboo so are perfect for sensitive skin and are double layered so are perfect for quickly drying you dog off.
KONG 2-In-1 Bench Seat Cover - With more outdoor adventures in the diary, comes more opportunity for your car to get wet or muddy at the paws of your pup!! In the UK the weather can be changeable, which means your dog may well get wet or muddy on their walks. The KONG 2-In-1 Bench Seat Cover are designed to protect your car’s soft furnishings. When you get back to the car with your pup, it won’t matter how soggy they are, as the covers will stop water and dirt from ruining your car seats or boot lining.
They’re also a really practical idea for trips to the recycling centre or garden centre; a multi-purpose car accessory that will get so much use!
Pet Remedy Calming Spray - Travel can be stressful for our pets. If you’re going on a journey and you know that travel can make your pet anxious, then this pet calming spray is the ideal product. It can be used in the run up to your travel day and can be sprayed on bedding and blankets.
Be:Sunsafe Sun Protection - The sun can be just as much a hazard to our pets as it can be to us, and animals can get sunburnt just like us. This nourishing balm by Be:Loved contains SPF to help protect the exposed areas of your pup’s body. Noses, ears and paws are all susceptible, even more so if your dog has light or white hair. Use this to protect any exposed ares before you go out in the sun and remember to reapply throughout the day.

Our Favourite Accessories for Home
All For Paws Fountain Fresh Water Fountain - One of the biggest priorities in the Summer is to ensure our pets stay cool and hydrated. This fountain by All for Paws will help with both of those things. It's great for encouraging your dog to drink water.
All For Paws Chill Out Toys - Playtime is important whatever the weather, but it could potentially overheat your dog on a hot day if it’s too strenuous. Keep playtime fairly sedate and use a cooling toy such as the All For Paws Chill Out Range. You can soak it in water and the water will be slowly released during chew time or playtime, helping to regulate your pup’s body temperature. Just keep games a little slower on really hot days - and save the long distance throwing or tug-of-war for cooler ones.
All for Paws Cooling Mat - Another cooling essential, this mat will become your pup’s favourite place to lounge in the Summer. It can be used indoors or outdoors. Just make sure you pop it in a secluded, shaded area if you’re out in the garden.
Duck Egg Spot Crate Set - Relaxing is everyone’s favourite thing to do in the Summer and this crate set will be your pup’s favourite place to do just that. The set will provide a quiet place all of your pup’s own, where they can relax for a nice chew session with their toy of choice, or just go for a nap. The summery duck egg spot is simply stunning too and it's made from 100% cotton so it breathable for your pup.
Scruffs Scandi Non Tip Bowl - Keeping your dog cool and hydrated is so important in summer, these Scruffs bowls are perfect. They're made from a stoneware ceramic material and have thick sides which helps to keep your pets water cool. They're heavy which means if you've got a playful pup it's hard for them to push the bowl round and the angled sides with flared bottom gives the bowls stability so they can't be knocked over. The bowls come in both grey and cream, whichever you choose they’ll look wonderful in your home!
