With summer in full swing, we thought we would share some useful products that will help keep your four-legged friends summer prepped. Hydration, being active (at cooler parts of the day), smelling fresh, cooling off, having fun, being treated and keeping those pesky parasites at bay are all important! So we have gathered our top picks and put together our summer shop!
Here’s our list of items we think will be helpful during the summer months…
.It’s vital for our dogs to be kept hydrated so it’s important to ensure that they have access to clean water at all times. We know that some dogs only like to drink out of their own bowls and can be a little fussy when out and about! So what will help?
Beco Pets Collapsible Dog Travel Bowl
Dogs love the great outdoors and now it’s super easy to keep your dog hydrated when out and about. The Beco Travel Bowl is made from silicone and with its compact design you can take your Beco Bowl anywhere! Collapse it down, and pop it in your bag!
Popware Portable Dog Bowls
If you don’t normally take a bag with you, then why not try one of these portable dog bowls? Collapse it down and then simply attach it to your dogs lead. There will be no chance in accidentally leaving it behind!
H2FidO Dog Travelling Bowl & Bottle
The H2FidO pack is quite unusual. It contains a collapsible water bottle and bowl combo which won’t add any bulk to your bag! It’s perfect for when you’re on the go with your dog and may not have access to water. Simply fill up the bottle before you go and when needed, open up the bowl and pour in the water. When you are done, collapse it all back down and away you go!
Ceramic Dog Bowl
If your dog has a stainless steel bowl, it may be worth also considering a ceramic one for the summer months. Metal can get very hot and heat up the water as a result. We have added the link to a super cute one, which comes in two sizes.
Watching your dog play in a puddle or splash around in a river to cool off is great. However, that wet dog smell isn’t quite so pleasant! Help keep your dogs in tip top condition with these products (we have also added in a stain and odour remover for any accidents that may happen at home…).
Nootie Dogs Body Shampoo
This shampoo by Nootie has a natural scent of sweet pea combined with vanilla which fights germs and leaves your pet with a soft and fresh smelling coat. It has great reviews for smelling wonderful!
Pet Head Waterless Shampoo
If you haven’t got the time to bath your pooch but they are in need of a little TLC, then this non-rinsing waterless spray shampoo by Pet Head is perfect for freshening them up. It smells like blueberry muffins and is super convenient, just spray on your beloved pooch and let it cleanse their coat without the need for water! Perfect for leaving in the car!
Simple Solution Hard Floor Stain & Odour Remover
We know that sometimes accidents can happen, so this stain remover has an enzyme formula designed to eliminate the toughest stains and odours. It’s safe to use on sealed wood floors, hard surfaces and special stones!
We all know the importance of keeping fit and healthy and it’s no different for our four-legged friends. It’s vital they keep active and exercise just like us! We’ve found some fab products for hours of endless fun… In the peak of summer, make sure you wait for the cooler part of the day before being active with your dog!
Nerf Dog Stomper
The Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Stomper is a fun and easy way to give your four-legged friend the exercise he desires (and your arm a well deserved rest from throwing). The nerve stomper is foot activated and can launch any standard tennis ball up to 75 feet – making it ideal for dogs who love to run and owners with shoulder injuries.
Chuckit Sport Ball Launcher
The Chuckit ball launcher is slightly more traditional than the above but is still perfect for high energy dogs that love to run the distance. With minimal effort, you’ll be able to throw your ball 2 x further than with any standard tennis ball thrower! Perfect on walks too.
Frisbee Dog Toy with Tennis Ball
This Frisbee will keep your four-legged friend entertained for hours. It also includes a tugger and tennis ball meaning it is great for either interactive or solo play and perfect for the garden or for when you are out on walkies. Just give it a throw and see where it ends up!
Just like us, our dogs get hot too and enjoy finding ways to cool down. Here are some fab products for those hot summer days! There are also lots of different tips and tricks we can try to help keep them cool – check out our blog post here.
Billy & Margot Iced Treat
Ice cream and summer come hand in hand and our doggies no longer need to feel left out when it’s ice cream time! Billy & Margot have created the pawfect ice treat. Free from dairy and made using pure fruit and coconut oil, it’s not only the perfect treat for hot summer days, it’s also really useful to help our dogs cool down.
Rosewood Cooling Mat Dog Bed
This Rosewood cooling mat is designed to keep pets cool and comfortable. Activated by the weight of your dog or pressure, the mat will maintain a temperature slightly lower than the ambient. It comes in a variety of sizes and automatically recharges itself as your pet moves – it’s also lightweight so perfect for travel as well as use at home.
Petkin Doggy Sunscreen Wipes SPF 15 20
Just like us hoomans, doggies need protection from the sun too. These sunscreen wipes from Petkin are the most convenient way to protect our pooches from the suns harmful UV rays. Simply wipe on for instant protection.
Setting off for a summer walk and picnic with the family – why not bring your dogs along too? We’ve gathered together the essentials for your four-legged member of the family!
PawBakes Baking Kits
There’s nothing better than finishing up your picnic with a delicious cupcake or biscuit, especially the homemade type! With PawBakes doggie baking kits, your dog can enjoy fresh from the oven, home-baked treats with no added nonsense. The perfect picnic!
Bottom Sniffer Dog Beer
‘Beers’ are no longer just for hoomans, your pooch can now enjoy one too. This non-alcoholic, non-carbonated doggie beer is the ultimate doggie refreshment – so why not share the ‘beer’ experience with your dog!
Woof & Brew Pawsecco
If your pooch is a princess and turns his or her nose up to beer, then why not raise a glass of pawsecco with your best friend?! Woof & Brew’s Pawsecco has been designed to either pour over food or serve as a drink. This specialised healthy, herbal infusion is of course non-alcoholic, grape-free & non-carbonated. Yummm!
We all love to get out and have fun with our favourite furry friends during the summer months, but with the warm weather comes an increased risk for parasites. Do not fear, just because the pesky pet parasites are out in full force doesn’t mean you have to hide away, we’ve found some items to help keep them at bay and also to get rid…
Advantage Spot On Solution For Dogs
Advantage Spot On Solution can be used for both the treatment and prevention of flea infestations, and the treatment of biting lice on dogs. Advantage also kills flea larvae in the home, wherever the treated pet goes. In order to purchase this product, you may be required to complete a simple set of questions to confirm that you know how to use it safely.
Beaphar Flea Repellent Shampoo
Why not also try a mild shampoo that’s suitable for both dogs and cats that are over 12 weeks of age. It will help repel fleas and other insects, leaving the coat clean, shiny and smelling fresh.
We hope our summer shop has been useful and has helped with those top picks needed for the summer months!
