Owning a pet is one of the most rewarding experiences. Animals enrich our lives in so many ways and often end up being a loyal part of your family. We love to care for our pets and to ensure that they have the best of everything, from winter coats to keep them warm, to soft bedding and the best riding and walking accessories.
During the winter months, it is important to keep our pets safe and warm. You may choose to bring your guinea pig or rabbit in from the cold and set them up a warm cage in the house, or go out and buy new blankets and saddles for your horse.
Don’t forget to update your own accessories for winter though! It is just as important to make sure that your riding equipment or dog walking gear is up to date. You need to stay dry and warm and take care of yourself, in order to take care of your animal.
A few stylish ways to update any pet owner’s accessories can be found below.
If you are new to dog ownership then, you may have only just thought about the correct accessories for your new best friend. Make sure that you get some for yourself as well. A good waterproof and windproof coat is essential for those cold and rainy days walking your dog in the park. You will also need some good running shoes if you want to take your dog out to exercise with you.
If you are a passionate horse owner, then consider heading to your local One Stop Equine Shop and making a list of all the essentials you will need for yourself and your horse. Consider some warm winter riding clothing for yourself and a new pair of riding boots and riding gloves. There is a range of stylish saddle bags that will look great with your new accessories.
If you are a small pet owner then, you could think about updating their outdoor housing to a new and stylish residence. You could even give them a luxurious new home that matches your garden decor! Don’t forget things like gloves for yourself, so that your hands are protected when cleaning out cages.
Ensuring that you stay hygienic and protected whilst looking after your animal is a big part of responsible pet ownership. You want to be disinfecting your cages and crates with a pet safe solution on a regular basis.
Bathing your dog is also a great way to keep them looking and smelling fresh. Make sure that in the winter months you have some warm towels to dry them off with. You should also pre-heat your home, ready for when they are done. You don’t want to make your pet sick from the cold. Look for some nice bedding that they can curl up on afterwards.
The more effort you put into caring for your pet, the happier it will be. However you choose to keep your pet safe and stylish this winter, make sure that you are both getting the most from your journey.
