Products to keep your pet warm and safe all winter long. I think I feel a shopping spree coming on!
The wintry season shows no signs of slowing down, with more snow and sleet on the way in many areas. Recently, we’ve talked about cold weather pet care, and suggested some ways to beat the blizzard blues this season.
But what if your pet just needs a comfy bed or coat to stay warm indoors or out? If your furry friend could use an extra layer, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite gear for keeping your pet snuggly and safe through the winter.
You’ve probably heard about the Snuggie or the Slanket, but did you know that you can also get a Snuggie for Dogs? These wearable blankets come in four sizes, and are comfortable and loose-fitting for your dog to use inside the house or outdoors. And if you’re also feeling chilly, you can buy a matching one for yourself!
If your dog is more the rough-and-tumble outdoorsy type than the Snuggie type, try the Ruff Wear K-9 Overcoat. This durable, easy-to-use jacket also improves visibility as your pooch romps in the snow.
For even greater visibility and safety in overcast weather or windy snowdrifts, clip the Ruff Wear Beacon Safety Light to your dog’s collar or clothing. The Beacon stands up to the most vigorous outdoor snow play, and keeps your dog visible up to ½ mile away.
Of course, many dogs prefer a long winter’s nap to a lengthy session in the snow. So if your pooch could use a toastier sleeping spot, try the Eco-Friendly Napper Dog Bed. As a bonus, the fabric is created from recycled plastic bottles, so your pet can “go green” while staying snug.
And if your cat needs a safe spot to curl up, keep her warm with the Slumber Pet Thermal Cat Mat. And because the Slumber Pet reflects a pet’s own body heat, your kitty will stay comfy without you having to worry about batteries or electric cords.
Of course, the Slumber Pet Thermal Cat Mat is no match for my lap, but I digress. Until next time, keep warm and keep your helmet on. -Ang
