Get off to a good start this autumn
Autumn is quickly approaching, so it's a good idea to be aware of several products that might help you start the season off right.
Autumn typically begins when the weather starts to cool down and the leaves on the trees start to change color, and it ends when the leaves have fallen off the trees and it has been consistently cold.
If your dog has a thick coat, consider trimming it to keep them warm in cooler weather. If your dog has a thin coat, consider purchasing a warm sweater or coat for them to wear when going outside.
Autumn and rain are frequently associated, and yes, your dog needs to be walked outside whether it is raining or not, so a raincoat for your dog is a good idea. We have a large selection of dog rainwear, including matching jackets for you and your dog from the German brand MiaCara.
In the cooler, drier weather of autumn, paws can become dry and cracked. To keep their paws soft and protected, apply paw balm or wax.
Towels or drying gloves for fur and paws are also useful so you don't have to clean up after your wet dog.
Another thing to keep in mind is that ticks thrive in humid conditions, so check your pet regularly, especially after a walk in the woods! And keep ticks and fleas at bay with many of our effective products.
Autumn has beautiful colors and pleasant scents, but it also has fewer daylight hours. It is critical to increase your dog's visibility and safety while walking by using reflective gear and lights in the dog's collar, harness, or leash. These ensure that others can see you and your dog, but also that you can see your dog if it runs away. Visibility is especially important if you live in the city and move around among bicycles and cars, both of which can be dangerous to you and your dog.
Autumn also brings colder weather, which is ideal for snuggling up inside with a warm bed or blankets and, of course, delicious treats. Consider feeding your dog a higher-calorie food during the cooler months when they are less active.
Although dogs may be less active during the cooler months, it is critical to continue to provide them with regular exercise and playtime to ensure their health and well-being. Keep an eye on your dog's behavior and look for signs of discomfort, such as shivering, whining, or avoidance of outdoor activities. Consult your veterinarian if you notice any changes to determine the cause and the best way to treat it.
