A Cute Dog Harness is Perfect for Walks with My Dog

When I go on walks with my dog, it is extremely important for me to make sure that I am able to keep my dog comfortable while still being the one in control. As my dog really likes to pull on his leash, it can be a bit of a challenge to make sure that he isn’t choking and gagging throughout this process. I just know that this isn’t something that is pleasant for him to experience.

So that I can control my dog better and keep him from choking all of the time, I have started to walk him on a harness instead. This works fairly well as the harness that I use is one that goes around his chest giving me a lot more control of this part of his body. With his cute dog harness on, I don’t have to worry so much about him pulling and choking himself.

When I go for walks with my dog now, it is so much easier for me to keep my dog a lot better behaved. The harness makes it easier for me to keep him from jumping up on people as they pass and even running out ahead of me. I know that this kind of a harness is something that is perfect to use on these walks.

Some Elevated Dog Feeding Bowls Look Nice in My Home

elevated dog feeding bowlsAs I began to look for some different types of bowls that my dog might be able to eat from, I was really interested in being able to find some kinds of bowls that I might be able to use to make sure that my dog would be able to eat out of these bowls without the bowls being on the floor. We had used bowls that sat on the floor for years and I was sick of tripping over them.

To make sure that I would be able to keep these bowls looking lovely while also having the right kind of bowls to use in my kitchen, I spent a good amount of time looking at different types of bowls that were out there. It was fairly easy for me to be able to find a lot of great dog bowls that I could choose from. I ended up selecting some elevated dog feeding bowls as these were very nice ones to have.

With bowls like these, I know that I will not have to worry about tripping over bowls again. It is going to be really nice to be able to keep myself from having to worry about these kinds of bowls on a regular basis. They will also look lovely standing in a corner of our home.

Extensions

Duragate 12.5 inch extensionMany dog owners may purchase a gate that works fine for their current dog.  However should they add a new canine household member it’s possible that their requirements for a dog gate could change, especially if the new dog is larger or a breed that tends to jump.  If this is the case there are a varied assortment or gate extensions available for different models of gates.

The extensions mostly come in two different sizes which increases the likelihood that there will be an extension available for your particular choice of gate.  Extensions are available for many of the gates and for all types of material, aluminum, steel and wood.  The extension shown in the image is a twelve and one-half inch extension for the Duragate model of gate, however there are plenty of other models and styles of dog gates that do have extensions available.

If you find that your dog has found a way to get over the fence and into mischief or worse inside the home or outdoors, then it is imperative that something be done to remedy this situation.  Gate extensions are the most economical and aesthetically pleasing option as opposed to rigging up some ugly looking mess that your dog will probably figure out how to escape from anyway.  Some dogs are escape artists and it is great to have such a healthy and physically able dog his safety still comes first and hopefully a different outlet for his physical abilities can be found such as dog agility.
