Gift Ideas for Active People who bring their Dogs

Here are some pet products that are ideal for people who bring their dogs on their travels. From safety to convenience, it’s important to have the supplies our pooches need on any adventure.

Hands-Free Dog Leash

Why would you ever want a hands-free dog leash? There are many reasons including the following:

  • Stop to tie your shoe
  • Enjoy coffee at a dog-friendly establishment
  • Run, jog, or walk without holding a leash
  • Feel more secure knowing you won’t drop the leash

Of course, we never ever suggest leaving your dog unattended. Tethering is an option when you need both hands but remain next to your pet.

Double Dog Leash

More than one dog? This double-leash was an absolute game changer in our house. When Mike and I take all three dogs for a walk, one of us can handle two dogs easily with this double leash.

No more criss crossing and tangling up on walks. This lead attaches to your leash and to each pets’ harness to keep them untangled and on track.

Safety

When you’re out on a hike, you want to protect yourself – with or without your dogs. It’s better to be safe than sorry. A tiny personal alarm can have a huge impact to warn off dangerous predators – human and animal. In fact, everyone should have a portable alarm with sounds and lights.

Read this post I wrote about being safe while walking your dogs alone for more tips.

Doggy Burnout

Not all breeds can keep up with their humans. I think all dogs like to be adventurous to some degree but have different tolerance levels.

Out of our three dogs, Franklin could walk all day long. The Grump has a good hour in him before he starts showing signs of exhaustion. And, Little Bea, well, she surprises us with her speed, but still is so tiny that she needs rest.

Thankfully, they have all sorts of contraptions to wear any pets that need a break without ending the day early.

Rides in the Car

Adventurous dogs love rides in the car, but there are safety issues to think about. Just like with humans, dogs should be secured in a seat. Heaven forbid there is an accident, pets remain safer when they are restrained in some way.

Not all dogs will tolerate contraptions equally. You have to know the dog a bit to choose the right product. There are harnesses, seat belts, and different crates designed to keep pets safe during car rides.

In my experience, once the dog realizes he needs to do certain things in order to come with you in the car, he becomes a lot more flexible.

Disposable Refresher

If someone happens to find something grotesque to roll in, no need to ruin the party. 😉 Give them a quick wipe down before getting back into the car.

First Aid Kit

It’s easy for pets to end up with a bite or other injury depending on what type of adventure they are on. It’s beneficial to have a basic doggy first aid kit for minor bites or injuries until a proper vet visit can be made.

Treats

How can I mention water and not treats? My animals would be crushed. Dog treats can help coax animals still training to behave out in the wild, or help fuel up on longer outings. It’s a good idea to carry some small dog treats whenever you go out with your pets.

Pets love to be with us as much as possible. We are their world. So, gifts for people with active dogs should be well received with both human hugs and doggy kisses. 🙂

Super ideas. I would have never thought of a doggy first aid kit but this would be a perfect gift.

Our border collie Georgie always always wants to be playing. We bought her some Kong toys which have helped, but she still gets bored and digs the occasional hole or chews on the deck.

So many great ideas. I will have to share this with my sister who has a neighbor with a VERY active dog. I'm sure there are some thing on the list that she will appreciate.

A first Aid Kit is a really great idea that most people never think about for their pets. I am planning to get one this year that I can keep in my car for my fur babies.
