Back Country K9 Gears Up For Doggie Adventures

Back Country k9 Get your four-legged bestie out of the house and out into the sunshine for some fresh air and nature. The play time is great for both you and your pup- you both get exercise and your sidekick can work on behavior and socialization while out and about. Back Country K9 has all of the gear you and your beloved pooch could need for adventures that extend beyond the backyard or dog park. Back Country K9 is not your typically pet store; rather, it is the outfitter for the pup-on-the-go, the adventurers and athletes and explorers.

Hikes, nature walks, or even snowy, icy excursions are completely doable and fun ways to exercise and get active as the temperatures start to dip.

Your canine companion will need some basic gear before striking out into the wild, to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone. Here are a few essentials to consider, depending on size, breed and temperament of your pal:

    • A Dog Coat does a lot more than just look adorable; it provides warmth, weather protection, and a leash clip and reflective striping for added safety. Be mindful of sizing- if your dog isn't comfortable, it will never be an easy task getting him into a coat or keeping it on.

    • The same goes for dog shoes; no, it isn't simply a fashion statement. (Although, fine, we admit it, a dog wearing little booties is scientifically the most adorable thing ever.) Back Country K9's boots are made from tough, water-resistant nylon with rubbery Toughtek soles that are durable and provide extra grip. Protect those paws not only from ice and snow but also rocky terrain, and prevent any injuries to that sensitive area.

    • A dog harness keeps excited pups in check and makes sure everyone's safety is paramount. Opt for a life jacket/harness hybrid if your excursions take you in or near the water. No matter how well you think your dog can swim, circumstances are not always in your control and it is always better to err on the side of safety.

Also bear in mind that a collapsible dog bowl or travel bottle is key to keeping your dog well-hydrated, no matter where the travels take the two of you. Opt for one that is easy to pack and clean. Also a must-have? Treats! Reward that good behavior and keep hunger at bay with a pocket full of healthy doggy treats.

Besides safety, fun is the next more important element to a successful adventure with your dog. So relax, have fun with your furry friend, and enjoy exploring the wild world out there.
