It’s important to remain safe when taking your dog for a walk in the early morning or at night, especially in the darker winter months. Kitting your dog out in suitable warm clothing such as jackets, vests, and even dog boots helps keep your dog comfortable, but you should also be thinking about staying visible.
Even if you’re planning on sticking to pavements and well lit walkways, gearing your dog up to stay seen with light emitting equipment and glow in the dark wear will help you and your dog stand out.
Below is our most popular night time visibility wear for dogs.

A puppy should never be a surprise gift for Christmas, birthdays, or even a lockdown cheer-up present. This is not fair on the gift receiver, the household where the puppy will be living, or the on the puppy itself. Dogs have a lifespan of 10 to 13 years and this is huge responsibility to give to someone who is not expecting it.

Below we outline the basics of getting your dog used to wearing a muzzle.
Introducing your dog to the muzzle
Like any new accessory your dog will wear, it’s very important to take the time and introduce your dog properly to the muzzle. This will get them familiar with it before trying to put it on the first time.
Sight & Smell
First, let your dog sniff the muzzle. This let them get used to its smell and you should reinforce their interest in it by using treats and giving them lots of praise.
Second, you should get your dog used to the feel of the muzzle. Avoid forcing it over your dog’s snout and
Having your dog meet other dogs or people they are unfamiliar with can be stressful – for you and your pet. But finding your dog a new playmate and getting them comfortable around different people is an important part of their behavioural development and a discipline they should know.
