I’ve tried various recipes and I think my twist on a classic biscuit is bound to satisfy any pooch (our dog loves them). Happy Easter from the Animal Outfitters trio!

Sometimes we all need a little lift in our lives and your small pet is no different. There are many situations where you might need to keep them elevated off the ground, for your sake and theirs. So why would you buy a dog carrier bag or sling? Safety: the hustle bustle of outdoor life can be very intimidating for a small dog, especially if they’re the anxious type. A dog carrier bag is a great way to provide reassurance and a sense of security for your dog.

Fed up with wet smelly dog collars?

Dealing with wet smelly dog collars and leashes isn’t one of the more special moments of being a dog owner, let’s face it. Scenario one, it’s raining outside and dog needs a walk. Scenario two, it’s a hot day and dog needs a swim. Either way your dog collar and leash are going to get wet. You’ll need to dry the gear before using it again, during which time it will begin to smell, harden up, and possibly get mouldy. Mould spores degrade the collar’s fabric rendering it weaker and less appealing, not good when you rely on a collar’s strength to protect your dog.  Buckles, D-rings and clips ..read more

You human folk may love Summer but spare a thought for us dogs. Bad enough we don’t get to enjoy the BBQ and beers, but worse still we cannot regulate our body temperatures like you. Consequently, heat exhaustion is a serious risk and a fast track to the vets if left ignored. Learn to recognise when I’m over-heating. I don’t sweat but you’ll quickly notice when my body temperature is high. I’ll feel hot to the touch, there’ll be panting, tongue-out action and bloodshot eyes. Hardly a picture fit for Instagram, but it’s my way of saying cool me down NOW. I don’t want to be a hot dog. Here are s ..read more
