Summer’s Hottest Dogcentric Must Haves!
Summer is here (can I get an amen?!) and that means taking advantage of any and all outdoor activities with your pooch in tow. As the experts have warned us time and time again, its important to constantly apply sunscreen, stay hydrated and protect your pupils with the most fabulous pair of Elsie aviators by Oliver Peoples. (Ok so maybe they didn’t specify the style/brand of sunglasses) What many of you fabulous readers might not be aware of however, is the importance of your pooch utilizing these same warm weather health precautions. Dogs, just like humans get sunburned within 30 minutes of being outside and, if not properly hydrated, can become very sick and possibly suffer from heat stroke.
Designed specifically for four legged friends, Pet Sunscreen by Doggles retails for $9.95 and is a non-oily, non-irritating, SPF 15 sunscreen that can be sprayed directly onto their coat and nose. This stuff is not only great for preventing a sunburn, but also helps to protect their beautiful shiny coat!
If your dog is anything like my sheltie Dalton, they will play ball until their paws fall off (or your arm, whichever happens first). So its absolutely important that they stay cool as they are running back and forth in this hot weather. The “Cool-It” bandana by Outward Hound, retails between $4.99 and $6.99 depending on their neck size, is made with non-toxic polymer crystals, that when soaked in water and refrigerated help to keep your pet cool and comfortable.
Available in 11 fabulous colors, Doggles are a stylish way to protect your dogs eyes from the harsh rays of the sun. Retailing for $21.99, Doggles are 100% UV protection, shatterproof lenses and mostly importantly your dog will be the talk of the pooch park.
