Useful Accessories Every Pet Owner Needs


Owning a pet will enrich your life beyond measure. Pets provide unconditional love and they pick us up when we are down. Stroking a pet provides stress relief and walking a dog is good exercise. The only downside is that owning a pet can be expensive. Vets bills, food, and pet accessories all add up, but if you want your pet to be happy and healthy, consider any money you do spend a good investment.

There are tons of fabulous pet accessories to choose from, so to make your shopping experience easier, here is a quick rundown on the best products available.

LED Pet Collar

Plenty of pet owners take their dog out for walkies late at night. It’s the last chance for Fido to go to the bathroom and catch up on some interesting smells. Nighttime walks are peaceful, but if you let your dog off the lead, you might have a problem finding him in the dark.

LED collars are a cheap but useful accessory for pets. As the name suggests, an LED collar lights up at night and helps you (and other road users) spot him in the dark. You can pick up LED collars relatively cheaply. The batteries can be replaced, but it is often cheaper to buy a new collar instead.


Clip Harness

Clipping a leash to a harness is much better than clipping it to a collar. Putting your pet in a harness spreads the load when he pulls. Walking a strong dog in just a collar can lead can cause irreparable damage if he pulls very hard. Some dogs will even pass out from a lack of oxygen.

A pet harness is kinder and more effective. Mesh harnesses are breathable and quick to dry, so can be laundered as often as needed. They are also comfortable for the dog to wear.
GPS Pet Tracker

A GPS collar for dogs will protect your pet, wherever he is. The GPS tracker transmits the dog’s exact location to a handheld device, so you can find him if he strays beyond a pre-determined perimeter. The technology is invaluable if your pooch has a habit of escaping the back yard or you are fearful of him being stolen. 


Travel Water Bowl

Dogs need drinking water throughout the day, especially if you are taking them for a long walk in the Great Outdoors. A travel drinking bowl can be flattened and placed inside a bag, along with a bottle of water. Open the bowl when your pet needs a drink and put it away when he’s sated his thirst.


Hi-Viz Pet Coat

Hi-Viz pet coats offer greater visibility at night and in poor weather conditions. Protect your pet from the weather and other road users by investing in a Hi-Viz coat. Used in conjunction with an LED collar, your pet will stand out for miles.


Pet Booties

Lastly, if you have wooden floors, invest in some non-slip pet booties. It could prevent a nasty accident!
