Summer is a great time of year to be a dog owner - long days down the beach, camping trips up the coast, and lazy days by the pool! Here are 10 Must Have Summer Dog Accessories that everybody can enjoy!
1. On The Go Water Bottle
How many times do you get to the park or down to the beach and there is no where for your dog to have a drink of water? The Sports Water Bottle is the perfect summer accessory, and its clever design allows your dog to lap up as much water as they need.
2. GoPro Harness To Capture The Action
Wouldn't it be great if we could see the life from our dog's perspective? Well now you can with the Shoot Action Harness. The harness has two GoPro attachment points, so you can capture your dogs adventures from multiple angles! It's also waterproof, so is great for using in the pool or at the beach.
3. A Cooling Dog Bed
Summer in Australia can be extremely hot, particularly for dogs that have long hair or are double coated. To provide your dog with some relief from the heat you may want to try out the Summer Cooling Mat. The mat is designed to absorb heat, giving your dog a pleasant place to rest during the hottest days. The mat requires no pre-cooling or freezing overnight, as the mat naturally absorbs heat produced by your dog laying on it.
4. UV Goggles For Protection
We all know how important it is to protect our own eyes from the damaging rays of the sun, however we don't always consider protecting our dogs eyes. Exposure to UV light can increase dogs risk of developing a surface ocular cancer called squamous cell carcinoma. The Sunny Day UV Goggles have a shatterproof, anti-fog lens that offers 100% UV protection for your dog eyes.
5. Sun Smart Hat
We all know how important it is to be sun smart, however we don't always think of our pooch's exposure. The Tailup Sun Smart hat can help them see better in bright conditions, shade delicate facial skin, and of course looks adorable.
6. A Lifejacket For Beach Days
Despite what we may think, not all dogs are confident in and around water. A lifejacket is a great way to ensure that your dog has fun and stays safe on the boat, or at the pool or beach. The Tropical Fish Swim Vest is a great way to teach your dog how to swim (or Surf!)
7. Very Own Personal Swimming Pool
Treat your dog to their very own paddle pool. If your live a long distance from the coast, or don't have access to a pool, then the WetDog Swimming Pool might be the best option to cool your pooch down. It also can be used as a fun way to wash your dog!
8. De-Shedding Grooming Glove
Summer is when many dog breeds begin to shed and lose their winter coat. This can leave a floating cloud of dog fur all over your house. A Grooming Glove can be a great way to groom your dog, and is designed to maximise comfort for your dog with soft bristles. It can also be used on dry or wet fur, unlike a comb which may get tangle in wet fur.
9. Hooded Bathrobe Towel
After a trip to the beach or dip in the pool, your dog will be a sopping mess. There's nothing worse than the smell of a wet dog. Instead of using a dirty old towel, your pooch will love getting wrapped up in the Hooded Bathrobe Towel, which is made from made from super fine absorbent fibre.
10. Vacuum Grooming Attachment
If you suffer from seasonal allergies then the Vacuum Grooming Attachment is the product for you! Allergies can get much worse in summer as there is a lot of pollen from flowers, but also our dogs begin to shed. This leads to excess dust and fur around our homes. The Vacuum Grooming Attachment is used to remove loose hair directly from your dog before it sheds around the home. The collected hair is sucked straight into the vacuum.
