Dog Walking Essentials For A Rainy Day
We love our doggos, period.
Of course you do, that’s the whole reason you’re here reading this blog! Nothing
like an aware Dog Parent, right? But like human parents, you also face days when
it’s tough to decide whether to worry about your furry friend getting wet in the rain
or to make sure they get their regular walks and finish their ‘business’, don’t you?
Well, it sure is a vicious circle. While some four pawed love the rains, some don’t.
In either case, how do you walk them out in incessant rains? What precautions to
follow? What not to do is a long list but what to do if you want to talk your pooch
Here are the only essentials you need when taking your dog out on a rainy day:
You thought only you survive the showery day by throwing on a raincoat? No. The
dog care markets now offer not just clothes but even raincoats, catering to the
rainy day needs of your furball. So, go online or through a dog supermarket and
grab one for yours. Because nothing should stop their fun, not even a little drizzle.
2. Dog boots
Now that the whole body is taken care of, what about the paws? Eventually,
those four little feet might get into muck and puddles, and that surely will make
them skeptical of coming out ever again while it rains. Solution? Dog Boots.
Indeed. Cute as it might sound to you, it’s true. Dog boots are a big rage in the pet
world and they make rain walking such a cake walk for your little one. (Though
initially they might be tantrummy about the weirdness of the boots but with
some time, they’ll be fine and running.)
3. Dog Paw Cleaner
When they are done through their walk in the fall, chances are they might catch
some mud on their feet. And you know how tough it is to clean them properly,
right? For that after effect of rain walking, you absolutely should invest in a Dog
Paw Cleaner, which is a silicon brush that cleans your doggo’s feet neatly from
every angle, without leaving speck. How wonderful is that !
4. Dog Doormat
If you’ve had a pup for long, chances are that you’ve heard about this one. But
even if you haven’t, it’s one of the most essential things after it starts pouring. So
once you’re back from the walk/hike, make sure to run your dog through a dog
doormat first. A dog doormat is extra thick and bigger absorbent of mud and dirt
than the normal ones and is the perfect aide to get for your house during rainy
5. A water-resistant bag
And when you’ve taken care of all of this, remember to carry all other essentials
like a dry towel, treats, doggy clothes etc in a water-resistant bag. You never
know what you might need and when, so better be prepared.
And above all this fun, don’t forget to keep your canine warm and safe.
