There are so many things to buy your pets out there. But what is actually useful and what is just clever marketing? Here are the top things listed on Amazon this month to treat your dog during the January blues.
Car Seat Cover
Winter brings cold and muddy walks for us dog owners! I love watching my dogs run and play in the woods, but I’m not too keen on getting those grubby little paws in my car afterwards! This car seat cover is versatile – allowing you to either use it as full hammock for the muddiest of pups, or you can zip it down to cover half the car seat. There is also a handy flap which allows your pooch to get in the hammock with ease, making it perfect for those little legs.
It’s waterproof, anti-slip and easy to install. It even has openings to allow you to still use the seat belt buckle which is important as your dog will need to be restrained in the car for everyone’s safety – the kit even comes with a safety seat belt and strap to keep your pup safe. There are even pockets to store snacks and toys and not only that, it has a 12-month warranty. Just what you need for this muddy weather!
Furbo Dog Camera
After a very long lockdown and lots of us working from home, it looks like lots of people are going back to the office. This can be hard on our pets if they have gotten used to you being around all day with them. The transition back to the daily grind can be made a little easier with the Furbo Dog Camera – allowing you to keep an eye on your pet whilst you are out. It offers;
- Full HD, 160º wide-angle, 4x zoom and night vision, you will be able to see your dog clearly day and night.
- Talk to your dog at home to calm him down and hear what he is doing thanks to 2-way-chat.
- Furbo sends a push notification to your phone when it senses your dog barking.
- Play remotely by tossing treats to your dogs via the free Furbo iOS/Android app. Fill Furbo with over 100 pieces of your dogs’ favourite treats and play a game of catch.
- The slight downward angle of the camera lets you see everything even if Furbo is placed high on a shelf and out of your dog’s reach.
Reusable Pet Hair Roller
With the cold weather, most of us will be turning up the heating and our beloved pets may start shedding. If your pets are anything like mine (I’m looking at you, Eric) there will be a constant sea of pet hair on your carpet, furniture and even your clothes. Whilst I adore my animals, I don’t really want to live with tumbleweeds of dog and cat hair everywhere, so a pet hair roller is a good investment! This one is great because you don’t have to buy refills for it which saves money and is better for the environment.
- The pet hair remover roller has a very effective fleece force and made of a semi roller coated with a static charge material. Just a couple of passes, you can collect more hairs from everywhere than the carpet cleaner can do.
- It picks up pet hair from most materials eg rugs, carpets, beds, cushions, curtains, pillows and clothes.
- It has a self-cleaning system. The brush collects the hair and fur into the top compartment and goes to the collection tray, which you just open up and chuck in the bin.
- It is environmentally friendly and economical as it can be reused, there are no need for expensive replacement parts. It is light and easy to use.
YuMOVE Senior Dog
Unfortunately, ageing is inevitable and even those sweet puppy dogs feel the effects of getting older too. However, it is our job as their owners to make their lives as comfortable and happy as we can. YuMOVE Senior Dog is a high strength hip and joint supplement designed for older, stiff dogs containing glucosamine, chondroitin and green-lipped mussel.
If you are worried about your dog’s health, your first port of call should always be your veterinarian.
Waterproof Coat with Fleece Lining
It’s chilly out there and our dogs feel the cold too. This coat has a built-in waterproof coating, which keeps dogs dry and comfortable in wet weather. The waterproof effect won’t be affected by branches or grass scratching which is important for those woodland walks! It is made of 3 layer fabric, windproof surface, cotton interlayer and soft polar fleece lining maintain your dog super warm in the cold winter while providing them sufficient freedom of movement. Easy to put on, take off and adjust with neck and chest velcro strips. It also has two reflective stripes on the back to optimize appropriate visibility, which improves the safety of walking at night or on rainy days.
It comes in two sizes too! Perfect for small, medium and large dogs.
So go on, why not get your dog a little something special this month!
