Whether you’re going on a day-trip with your furry friend or a longer journey, don’t forget to pack these 6 safety items!
1. In-Car Safety Harness
The first step is riding safely in the car. Use the EzyDog Drive Dog Car Harness to buckle your dog in! This crash-tested harness is easy to put on and adjust, and has a comfortable and ergonomic chest plate. Simply slip your car’s seat belt through the handles on the top of the harness and buckle it as usual.
2. Long Line
We love to see our dogs run freely, but it is not always safe to let them off leash. They may be nervous in a new environment, or still working on their recall skills. Keep your dog safe while giving them more freedom by using a long line! The Company of Animals Clix Long Line Dog Leash is 10 metres long, allowing your dog to run and play freely but still staying within easy reach. It is perfect for decompression walks, hikes, and recall training. You can hold the other end, or let it drag on the ground.
3. LED Collar Light
Visibility can change quickly, especially if you’re hiking deep in the mountains or exploring late in the day. Attach an LED light to your dog so that you won’t lose sight of them! Max and Molly's Ultra LED Safety Light is a bright, waterproof light that you can strap onto any collar or harness. After a full charge it can light up for up to 6 hours, giving plenty of time for exploring.
4. Adventure First Aid Kit
No one expects an accident to happen, but you can be prepared with an Adventure First Aid Kit. Suitable for both humans and canines, the kit contains first aid items for minor incidents, including antiseptic wipes, hydrogen peroxide, and non-adhesive dressing. The kit is small enough to fit in your backpack, so you can easily carry it on all your adventures.
5. Antimicrobial Spray
For minor cuts, apply the Vetericyn Wound and Skin Care Spray to clean the wound and kill bacteria. This non-toxic spray can be used on all animal species and is even safe to use around the mouth, nose, ears and eyes.
6. Bug Spray
If you will be outdoors for an extended period of time, don’t forget to bring bug spray! Earth Animal Herbal Bug Spray is made from a natural blend of aromatic herbs and essential oils that smell fresh and minty to humans and dogs, but repels mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks. Spray the paws and underbelly, and add a few extra spritzes to their back and neck. You can use it on yourself as well!
We wish you a fun and safe trip!
