It’s always a good time to go for a walk
One of the most important and favourite forms of activity with a dog is walking. It is fantastic to leave the house, spend time in the park, somewhere outside the city, and even in the nearby forest. However, when the autumn chills set in and the darkness falls faster and faster, our enthusiasm for everyday trips is less and less.
We must be aware that in most cases autumn weather changes do not affect our dogs. They always leave home with great enthusiasm. Satisfying their need for exercise is one of the basic activities related to caring for a dog. As you know, dogs living in closed houses need 2-3 walks a day, and this can be a challenge for their owners.
What to pay attention to before walking a dog?
So how are we to prepare for the autumn walks? We have to consider the fact that most of the outings will be early morning and late evening. We see limited visibility during these hours. This is especially true when walking in the park near bicycle paths or a pedestrian crossing. At any time, we can unexpectedly come across other passers-by, and this can cause violent reactions in both our pets and people we meet, surprised by the appearance of the dog. To avoid nervous reactions, we recommend using equipment with reflective elements. These can be leashes, harnesses, and collars.
In places that are very dim or completely unlit – if we are in a forest outside the city – remember to keep the dog on a leash, which will minimize the risk of unexpected and tricky situations.
What else we can do?
When the beautiful September weather, intertwining warm sunny days with cooler rainy periods, finally turns into cold and unpleasant November weather, in the case of the most sensitive dogs, we should reach for additional clothes. The Bowl & Bone Republic brand offers a very wide selection of sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, coats and even chimneys. Such additional equipment will protect our pets from cooling down. Perfectly tailored outfits for dogs guarantee not only the comfort of pets but also are a nice accessory for the eye.
After a long and demanding walk, we return home and each of us tries to warm up as quickly as possible. We make a cup of good tea, and the dogs stretch out on their favourite bed or mat. The Bowl & Bone Republic brand offers a wide range of beds in many colours and finishing methods. If we are looking for custom dog bedding, the company’s designers will adapt the cut to our needs. We hope that considering everything we just said, you’ll finally enjoy every autumn walk with your doggy.
