Winter is coming and with it the cold nights are drawing in. Then, don’t wait for Christmas to treat your pooch to something to keep them toasty, warm and their tail wagging. Instead, take a look at these five special treats and see if there isn’t something on the list worth indulging your dog with this autumn.
1. A New K9 Crib
Every dog needs his (or her) own bed. Not only is a dog bed advisable for any pooch as it provides them with a designated place to sleep, most obviously; a dog’s bed is also an important investment as it provides a pooch with its own territory and a literal safe place to retreat to. Hence, buying dog beds is serious business and it takes some real doggie lover know how.
For those buying a first time dog bed, before doing so give the guide featured on the canine journal website a read ahead of hitting the shops. Meanwhile, for those looking to replace their dog’s old bed, head straight over to shops like the Pet Luxury website to get your dog a new crib that they (and you) can be proud of.
2. Somewhere to Stash the Scooby Snacks
A dog’s life is no life when it doesn’t involve being thrown the odd bone (or Scooby snack) from time to time. For a truly cool place to stash your dog’s treats and also ensure they keep fresh as well as sealed to prevent them stinking the house out, treat your pooch this fall to its very own personalised dog treat storage jar as sold via the Personalised Gifts Shop Online.
Better yet, go one further and invest in a Bake-a-Bone Original Dog Treat Maker as sold via the Amazon website and you can even use your dog’s personalised treat jar to keep home made snacks in. This is not only a cool gadget for those looking to create dog treats that they know their pooch likes and as well treats which they can ensure contain only ingredients they want their dog to eat, but is a really creative and fun way to involve the whole family in feeding the dog and learning about its nutritional needs.
3. Walkie Talkies
No, dog walkie talkies are not ‘an actual thing’. At least not yet. Rather, this is a must have this autumn for any dog owner to ensure that their dog gets a good long walk at least once a day without their owner getting bored and cutting walkie-time short. What is the magical gadget that can keep an owner occupied whilst walking their dog then? Less of a gadget even and more of a gadget add on, every dog owner should treat themselves to a Juice Squash Power Bank as sold at PC World this autumn to ensure their iphone, smart phone or ipod doesn’t die on them whilst walking their dog.
Not only is having your phone or music player working and good to go likely to extend the amount of time you spend walking your dog, it is also a matter of safety; when walking a dog in a rural place or anywhere ‘off the beaten track’ or in the evenings as autumn nights are far darker than summer ones, it is a matter of safety to ensure you have with you a phone in case you happen to fall, injure yourself or worse.
4. Buying Man’s Best Friend a Pint at the End of the Day
Devised by a dog owner who often stopped by his local whilst walking his dog or when returning from a long walk with his four legged best friend, dog beer is not only an actual thing and exists, it is also an inexpensive, alcohol free and nutritional treat for your dog. To learn more about (and buy) doggie beer, head over to the Official Snuffle Dogbeer website.
5. A Pooch Pamper Spa Day
Last but not least, because us humans are not the only creatures to suffer when summer draws to an end and the dry air, cold nights and frosty morning hit, why not take the opportunity or just use the colder weather as an excuse to book yourself in for a spa day and whilst you are at it also book your dog in for some poochy pampering at the likes of one of the world’s many pooch parlours and dedicated dog spas such as The Pet Spa London.
