Dog Walking Essentials
Thursday 4th May, 2017 | Posted by Marchbrae
Having a dog is an excellent excuse to take a long walk and explore the great outdoors. Come rain or shine, your dog wants the chance to roam free and you both need to be prepared for whatever the weather throws at you. Today we look at what we consider our dog walking essentials. Whether you stroll along the beach or hike through the countryside, you'll find this selection of weatherproof clothing and accessories a good place to start.
Crafted from Barbour's signature cotton classic tartan, this dog lead adds a little touch of British heritage to your walks.
When it comes to keeping your dog warm and dry, Barbour offer a couple of great options. The Barbour Wax Dog Coat Olive (Left) has proven incredibly popular and is an excellent way to shield your pet from the weather. If things get a little wet the Barbour Waterproof Breathable Classic Tartan Dog Coat (Right) offers the protection your dog needs from the rain without making them too hot.
Now that we've covered your dog, it's time to look at some of the options we have available for you, the owner. For the ladies we have picked this Barbour jacket because it not only looks great but is waterproof too. Available in both Mist (pictured) and Dark Navy, there is an option to suit. The Coldstream features a flattering slim fit cut and a belted waist for added shape and functionality.
For the gentlemen we have chosen the Spruce Half Zip thanks to its water repellent properties. The teflon-coated cotton and nylon will keep you dry and the funnel neck will protect you from the wind. The Spruce is a no-fuss sweater you can throw on before you head out with your dog and you won't ahve to worry about keeping dry if the weather turns.
If you're out in the countryside, a pair of wellies are probably a good idea. What better ones to choose when talking about your dog than this fun, Fido print pair from Joules? Handmade from natural rubber, the Wellyprint are completely functional and also add a little character to your outfit.
