Bruce’s Best Dogwear

When it comes to the world of dogwear and knowing what’s best for your dog it can be a daunting task, especially for any first time dog owner. We caught up with Head of Enrichment Louise to bring you our top recommendations on the best leads, harnesses, collars and coats.

Dog leads

Dog leads

We’d recommend any double-ended dog lead as a great choice for your dog. They make it easy to manage your pooch until they learn how to walk politely on-lead. Alternatively, any soft textured training lead is a good choice for a dog owner.

Dog harnesses

Dog harnesses

Our number one favourite is the perfect fit dog harness, designed with interchangeable pieces measured for all shapes, ages, and sizes making it snug, safe and a comfortable fit for your dog. An alternative option would be Snuggle Pets fleece harnesses.

If your dog has never worn a harness don’t assume they will be comfortable straight away. You’ll need to build up a positive association and familiarise your dog to their new harness.

Dog collars

Dog collars

There are different collars that work better for different dogs. For example, for a sighthound we’d recommend a Martingale collar. These collars are wider than most and help protect a larger surface area of their neck, along with distributing pressure evenly.

Both buckled and clip collars can be just as good as each other. Just make sure to take into account the weight of the buckle on your dogs neck along with the sturdy and security fastening.

Brachycephalic breeds don’t necessarily need a collar and would be more comfortable with a fitted harness.

Avoid choke, prong and half check collars.

Dog coats

Dog coats

Equafleece is a brand that we highly recommended and with a range of Polartec fleeces there will be something to suit every dog. Equafleece have a sister company if you’re looking at a cheaper option called HOTTERdog.
