Dogs don’t just become best friends with their owner but become part of the family. Caring for a dog is also quite like caring a child that is covered in fluff, and the majority of dog owners would probably agree too. When you first get a dog it should be a decision that has been very well thought out as it is a responsibility that you shouldn’t take likely. Although having a dog is great as they are very loyal and loving animals, and owners now love to accessories their dog keeping them safe and stylish at the same time.

Coats

Dog coats now are not only practical for your pup but can be incredibly fashionable and transform your dog’s natural good looks. It should be noted that not all dogs need a coat or sweater to keep them warm when venturing out for walks in winter and when it’s wet. Some dogs will need a coat especially for shorter-haired breeds, senior dogs, puppies and dogs with medical conditions can all benefit from the additional warmth and protection a coat provides. When looking for a coat for your dog you need one that will cover their neck and belly, and also enables neck-to-tail protection. It is also important to remember that your dog’s coat should be fitted but not restrictive as you still want them to be able to walk, run and jump about.

Bed

After your dog has spent the day going for fun walks they will need a peaceful fulfilling night’s sleep, so a soft and cosy bed for your dog is a must. Some dogs may have beds but will still sleep on the floor from time to time. Although it may be nice having cuddles with your pet pooch in bed it encourages bad behaviour so try to keep it to a minimum or completely out of the question especially when they have a perfectly good bed themselves. When choosing a dog bed make sure it is the right size for your dog as you want them to have enough space no matter what weird positions they may like to sleep in.

Grooming Tools

As well as buying all the accessories you need for you dog, grooming tools should definitely be on the must-have list. All dogs want to be loved and the best way to make them feel special and cared for is by having a few grooming tools to keep their fur and coat in tip top condition. Most dogs enjoy being brushed and the sessions will strengthen the bond with your dog while maintaining a nice healthy coat. Some dogs, depending on the breed and type of their coat won’t need to be brushed and groomed as others, but you should aim to brush your dog daily especially if they enjoy it.

Toys

Although not must-have fashion accessory toys are still essentials that your dog will need to have access to. Playing and chewing are natural behaviours in dogs, although some dogs will play and chew more than others. There are dozens of different types of toys out there for you dog including discs, balls, plush toys, tug toys and even floating toys if your dog enjoys swimming. Toys are a great way to keep your dog entertained and satisfy their need to chew without ruining your furniture and home. With all of these items your pet pooch will not only be happy and satisfied but very on trend too.
