Friday’s Favorite Five: Fall Dog Gear
Fall is officially here. I’m a summer gal and Dexter is a beach dog, so we are sort of sad in our household. Don’t get me wrong – I love the fall and the fall foliage, but being in Ohio, that just means the winter cold, snow, and slop. That, I can do without. I thought today’s Favorite Five would focus on enjoying the fall outdoors with our dogs.
MeekByDesigns Dog Sweaters: There’s no hiding my love for a good dog sweater. Dexter The Dog enjoys staying cozy when the temperature starts to drop. He’s a big fan of a good dog sweater. However, Dexter is not a dog that can usually wear “off the rack” clothing. He’s a long, lean Cavalier. Our go-to for dog sweaters is MeekByDesign. MeekByDesign is an Etsy shop that offers quality, custom made dog products, including dog sweaters. I have been beyond thrilled with this company and the owner Mieko is fabulous with my custom requests on designs. The quality is impeccable and the style is very fashionable.
Canned Organic Pumpkin: A fall day isn’t complete without a little pumpkin. Pumpkin is a great ingredient that you can use in your own healthy, homemade dog treats! Add a teaspoon or tablespoon to your dog’s food to help with digestion and to help your dog feel full.
Saltsox Urban Booties: If you and your dog are the adventurous types, having the proper footwear is a must. Take it from Dexter’s awkward feet, Saltsox dog booties are great dog boots that are pretty easy to put on, and even more importantly, they stay on! These high-performance dog boots are weatherproof and light. They were designed for concrete sidewalks, making them a great everyday dog boot.
Soggy Doggy Microfiber Chenille Doormat: Are you looking for an absorbent doormat that will soak up the water and mud from your dog’s paws? Soggy Doggy boasts that it absorbs 5X more water than a regular cotton doormat, soaks up water and dirt like a sponge, and is quick-drying and exceptionally durable. I have not yet had the pleasure of testing, but my dog training clients who have them have told me they love them!
Ruffwear Highlands Sleeping Bag: I’ve been a fan of Ruffwear for years, and when I came across their Ruffwear Highlands Sleeping Bag I just thought to myself, what a great idea. If you are backpacking or hiking with your dog, this dog sleeping bag is a must. The insulation insulates a dog from cold air and hard ground. It has a side zipper that opens the bag wide for easy entry. The dog sleeping bag also has four stake-out loops to secure the sleeping bag to the ground.
