Ruffwear Gear for 2014
Posted on: April 25 2014
With summer just around the corner, now is a great time to think about planning your holiday breaks. For many, part of this includes just how you're going to look after your dog during the warmer months. Like humans, dogs also feel the heat and it can be important to choose the right products to keep your dog happy! Here are some great products created by Ruffwear which could come in handy this summer.
Keeping cool on long summer walks can be a problem for your pooch, that is why Ruffwear created the Swamp Cooler Jacket. This jacket can be soaked in cold water and then fastened around your dog, swapping its heat for the cool water on the jacket. This simple product will help to provide your dog with the best sun protection and allow them to keep active for much longer than they would without it.
When the sun is up, everyone knows the importance of staying hydrated if you're out and about - and the same goes for your pet. The Bivy Bota Water Travel Bowl is made for just that. This travel bowl folds almost flat to ensure it is fully portable, but what makes this portable bowl so different is that it can also hold the water. Gone are the days of carrying around a water bottle and dog bowl, the Bivy Bota does both!
Summer is the best time for sailing the ocean waves with the sun on your back and there's no reason why your dog should be left behind. For those salty sea-dogs out there, Ruffwear has created the K9 Float Coat. This is essentially a life jacket for your dog should they decide to jump out the boat. The life jacket is designed for dogs of all sizes and enables them to join their owners kayaking, surfing, boating or just heading out for a swim.
Campers who want to take their dogs away with them may have faced the problem of finding a comfortable place to sleep. You don't want to share your comfy camp bed with your dog, but don't have the space to bring a human-sized bed for them. The Highlands Portable Bed was designed to solve just that problem. The portable bed is dog bed made with thermal material which insulates heat and packs away into a small, easy-to-carry bag, perfect for camping or even a day at the beach.
When out and about, sometimes you need to give your dog a little helping hand to navigate some of the tougher obstacles found in the great outdoors. The Webmaster Harness allows owners to lift their dog easily and comfortably. It was originally used by mountain rescue teams, but is now considered the best multi-use harness you can buy.
Once upon a time, taking your dog away on holiday with you may have seemed like an inconvenience, but with these products, that is simply no longer the case. You're able to take your dog with you wherever you decide to go on your travels, whilst ensuring that they are comfortable, healthy and safe at all times.
