More Fun For Your Dog With Outdoor Gear
Letting your dog come along and enjoy your active way of living can be exciting for you both. It takes some planning and perhaps some special gear, but you and your dog can be prepared and ready for the great outdoors in virtually no time. If you’ll be spending lots of time outside, you might even hike or walk in areas where your dog can go off-leash for a bit. The best gear for this kind of activity is a dog harness paired with a leash and a dog backpack.
Since you’ll possibly need food, water and other items, as well, this is often a lot to carry. But with a great back pack, your dog can carry her items while you carry yours. Not only can this provide some exercise for your pet, it can usually help her concentrate on what she’s doing and make her less prone to become distracted and try running or pull against her leash.
Don’t weigh your dog down with items, but adding some to a back-pack could be a helpful idea. Start out with the empty pack, since she might take time to start liking the feeling of having the additional bulk on her back.
Carrying water along on hikes is vital, but who would like to carry a bulky dog bowl? Feeding and watering your dog requires one, however. A folding dog bowl is the ideal solution. These bowls fold flat and can clip to a dog harness, collar, leash or belt with the attached snap-hook.
You can also put it in your dog’s back pack or your pack to carry along. You simply unfold the bowl inside out to pour your dog water and/or food. The material dries fast, so you can fold it back up and be on your way in virtually no time.
