Essential dog accessories

Posted by waggers on August 13th, 2013

Responsible dog owners are usually fully aware that taking care of dogs goes beyond just feeding them and providing them with shelter. Buying the right dog accessories is equally important to ensure that a dog receives the attention that it deserves. These accessories are also important in ensuring that your dog does not get to interfere with the furniture in your house or the upholstery in your car. The first accessory is a dog bowl. This is very essential, not just to provide a place from where a dog can take its food and water, but also to ensure your house is kept tidy. The food that the dog takes is, in addition, protected from contamination by dangerous micro organisms that might cause health complications to the dog. A dog bowl should be washed thoroughly using an antiseptic every time after the dog uses it to feed so as to ensure that it is clean and free from germs at all times.

The other accessory that is worth mentioning is a dog bed. This comes in various styles according to the size and age of the dog. Dog beds for puppies have lower cut doors for them to get in and out easily. In most cases, waterproof dog beds are recommended for puppies given that they are living in a delicate stage of life when they cannot still be able to find effective positions to provide their bodies with enough warmth. This is especially vital for lone puppies that cannot cuddle with others as a group so as to generate enough heat for themselves. Waterproof dog beds also help to keep the upper cotton padding bed section of a puppy bed from influence by floor and environmental temperature changes. This is essential on chilly days or winter seasons when there is a lot of cold that is originating both from the outside and from the floor. Dog blankets can also be added to generate additional warmth to a puppy as they sleep. 

The next dog accessory is made up of dog toys. Pretty much like your kids, dogs also like to move and play around the house and this can become very disastrous if you do not do something about it. Dog toys are meant to keep them occupied and are manufactured from materials that are safe for dogs to use.

Lastly, to protect your furniture, a mesh dog guard is very essential to restrict the area of movement available for a dog. On the other hand, one can also use it to restrict the movement of a dog to specific regions without interfering with its available space of play. A car dog guard is specifically meant to protect the dog during car trips.
