Dog Accessories

These days, it’s all about the bling-bling. From cellphones to cars, computers to PDAs – we accessorize everything. Whether you are using accessories to make something look good or make it more useful, it all boils down to one thing: accessories are essential. And this statement could not ring any more true than with accessories on your dogs.

Dog accessories have become more popular these days. They come in a wide variety, from dog accessories that enhance your dog’s appearance to those that are for protection. Some dog accessories, like dog collars, function as identifiers, in case the dog runs away or gets lost. There are also accessories for dogs that benefit not only the dog but you as well.

If you just got a new dog and don’t know a lot about caring for a dog, let alone shopping for dog accessories, then you have come to the right place. Shopping for your dog can be a challenge, especially with the wide range of dog clothes and accessories available in the market today. So we’ll make it simple for you. In this article, we offer you some tips on how to choose the right dog accessory for your furry friend.

Tip #1: Shopping For A Dog Collar
The dog collar is perhaps the single most important dog accessory that you, as a dog owner, should get. In fact, you can forget about all other things but the dog collar. The dog collar has several functions. The most obvious one is identification.

Many dog owners put their address and the name of their dogs in the collars of their dogs. That way, when the dog escapes from the backyard or gets lost, it is easier to find him because of the dog collar. Whoever finds him can just contact you through your address and inform you that he or she has your dog. Of course, things are hardly that simple, but providing a way for the finder to trace the owner of the dog makes things easier for everybody involved.

When shopping for a dog collar, keep in mind the fit of the collar. Does it fit your dog properly? Or is it too tight? A good rule of thumb is to make sure that you can fit two fingers between the collar and your dog’s neck. That’s the way to make sure that the collar is not too tight that it suffocates your dog nor too loose that your dog can easily slip through.

Tip #2: Shopping For A Dog Leash
When shopping for a dog leash, consider the size of your dog. If you have a large dog, then you need a leash that is thick and strong enough to hold him. If you have a small dog, then a thick leash would be too cumbersome and you don’t really need it, unless your small dog is a chewer. In that case, you need a leash that is made of strong fabric.

Tip #3: Shopping For Dog Car Accessories
Dog car accessories are much like car seats for children. They basically serve the same function. That is, they help keep your dog in place at the same time keeping them from distracting you while driving. In fact, this is one example of a dog accessory that benefits not only the dog but you as well. Keeping your dog properly behaved while driving will serve to minimize distraction and, thus, keep your attention on the road and avoid situations that may likely result in an accident.

There are, of course, many more things to learn about shopping for dog accessories. But just remember this one rule: Always choose dog accessories that are appropriate for your dog. Thus, small dog accessories are meant for small dogs, while large dog accessories are better on dogs of a large breed.
