Choosing Dog Accessories

When you visit a pet store or an online shop to find dog accessories you could spend the whole day looking at all the designs, patterns, shapes and styles that are offered. So how do you choose a fashionable look for your dog?

The first step is to take your dogs size into account. A big scary dog isn’t going to look very imposing with a big pink bow between his ears.  Choose accessories that emphasize the great things about your dog. If he’s big and scary get him some big scary accessories, like black leather boots for when he has to walk in the cold and wet weather.  A leather jacket would really complete the look if he will wear one. A studded collar and leash would also lend an imposing air to your dogs approach.

The next thing to consider is your dog’s personality. Many dogs don’t do well with dog clothing such as shirts or jackets. If your dog does that is great, you can outfit him in a complete look by adding accessories to his wardrobe. But if your dog is a nudist you can still give him some style with a colorful collar and leash set, or even a bow tie collar. If an item is going to make your dog miserable then don’t subject him to it.

Before accessorizing your dog you may also want to consider what he will be doing. If you’re going to the dog park where he can run and play you don’t want anything that will hinder his movement or that comes off easily. In other words if you feel he needs some eye fashion, go for the strap on goggles instead of the sunglasses. The same goes with hats, if they have a strap they are more likely to stay in place.

A functional and fashionable harness with a matching leash may be all the accessorizing your dog needs to be styling and profiling! It’s up to you just how dressed up or dressed down your dog looks when you take him out.

The choices are endless when it comes to adding accessories to your dog’s wardrobe. Everything from boots and shoes to hair bows and bells can help pull your pooch’s look together. So while everything you see in a doggie accessory department may make you ooh and aah, you have to consider your dog before you actually purchase a fluffy tutu for your Boxer to wear. Sometimes dog accessories just look silly!

Knowing When Your Dog Needs Disposable Dog Diapers

Many people think that disposable dog diapers are only for dogs that are very old or sick, but this is not always the case. Some dogs have incontinence problems due to being very nervous, medical conditions, or smaller than normal bladder. Other dogs may not be able to feel when they have the urge to urinate and therefore, end up “going” in the house, which can become very frustrating.

The Benefits of a Foam Bed for Your Dog

Unlike us humans, our four-legged, furry companions do not sleep for eight hours at a stretch. Dogs tend to enjoy several naps throughout the day, which for healthy dogs, would add up to approximately fourteen hours out of twenty-four spent in slumber. As the dog ages they will need to have more sleep and will need a place that is not only comfortable but also warm to ease those age-associated problems like aching bones and muscles.

Traditional Horse Blankets vs Modern Rug Technology

Assess your horse’s needs as an individual, consider the pros and cons of both the traditional style horse blankets, and snazzy modern rugs. Whilst you may be tempted to buy the latest super-inventive technological rug with all the features, it may well be the case that buying one or two quality traditional horse blankets to layer up with will be cost-effective in the long run. Traditional fabrics are often very good quality and offer longevity.
