Being the proud owner of a Sheepadoodle I have tested out various products that make it easier when taking your pooch out for walks and I have also gotten to know what my dog likes. Of course every good mum or dad wants to give their angel the best life possible so I thought I would mention a few doggy accessories that I have been using over the past few years.

The first item that I have mentioned has literally saved my arms from being yanked off. If you have a large dog that likes to pull you down the street then I highly recommend that you get yourself one of these. It does not restrict your don’t from opening their mouth or breathing so you don’t have to worry about putting your dog in major discomfort. I also like that it doesn’t make my dog look ferocious or scary. The Halti collar has made our dog walks so much more pleasant and it really is a must for dogs that pull.

A great standard lead. I have one of these for my dog however Duke’s one is red. These reliable light weight leads are available in a variety of colours.

It is important to get a good quality dog lead that will stand the test of time. I like this braided leather dog lead. It is strong enough to endure the strength of a large dog and your beloved best friend will always be looking sharp.

I have also added a leather lead for the puppies. It will withstand their chewing and it is light in weight. You will have good control over your puppy and your pup will feel comfortable.

For the extreme dog walkers! This dog walkers bum bag is a great multifunctional tool! You won’t have to worry about holding anything in your hands anymore. There is more than enough room for water, treats, poop bags, mobile, car keys and cards or cash. This is a great outdoors accessory even if you just want to go for a bit of a hike. Completely worth every cent and I must mention that it is really great value for money (and it cheap as chips).

This bum bag is a lot less flashy however it is still a worthy companion for your dog walking needs. It is made from a sturdy canvas material so it will be able to handle a lot of ware and tear. It is great for hiking, camping and outdoors activities.
