We love exploring the outdoors with our dogs. Whether you plan to hike, bike or run, here are some adventure gear for you to protect your dog from the elements!


1. Socks and Boots

Pawks Heather Dog Socks

Hit the ground running with the right paw protection for your dog! Pawks Heather Dog Socks have an anti-slip coating that maximizes grip and protects paws from the cold and other outdoor irritants. They are perfect for providing traction for senior dogs who need some extra help to maintain balance and mobility. These machine-washable socks come in 4 fun colours and 5 size options to fit every dog from Yorkies to German Shepherds!
The Ruffwear Grip Trex Boots are a great option for your adventure dog. The Vibram non-marking outsole provides flexibility and traction on any terrain, protecting dogs’ paws from extreme environments. They are easy to put on and take off, and the cinch closure fastens around the narrowest part of the leg to provide a secure fit. The upper air mesh layer is breathable while keeping dirt and debris out. Available as a pack of 2 or a pack of 4 depending on your needs. Measure the widest part of your dog’s paw to get the perfect size.
For simple paw protection try the disposable Pawz Rubber Boots. They come in a package of 12 so when one wears out you can simply replace it. These boots are made from natural rubber and are 100% biodegradable. They provide traction and prevent slipping, but are thin enough to let your dog feel the ground and provide a sense of security.

2. Paw Cleansers


Keep those paw prints sharp with simple daily cleansers suitable for use after every walk. Mr. Organic Paw Cleanser uses a combination of water, soap, and natural oils to create a gentle foam cleanser. Use the attached soft brush to clean and massage your dog’s paws and then wipe dry with a towel. The cleanser contains no fragrance or artificial colours and nourishes your dog’s paws. For extra moisturizer pair with Mr. Organic’s Paw and Nose Balm!
Get rid of dirt and mud with the Mudbuster Portable Dog Paw Cleaner. Just add a little water, insert your dog’s paw, and twist the Mudbuster to allow the gentle silicon bristles to clean the paw. It is convenient to carry with you or leave by your door to use after walks and hikes. Rinse out the container and it’s ready to be used again!
TrueBlue Super Fresh Body and Paw Wipes contain grapefruit essential oils that cleans and deodorizes without stripping the natural oils in the skin, while the macadamia nut oil conditions the skin and coat without leaving a greasy feel or any sticky residue. Use safely on paws and body every day!


3. Jackets


Be prepared for a rainy day with this easily storable Packaway Dog Raincoat. Slip this travel-size raincoat in your bag and unfold when needed to protect your dog’s fur from the rain. Made with a 100% waterproof nylon shell, this raincoat will keep your dog dry and fashionable. The mesh lining makes it breathable, and the harness slit makes it convenient to throw over their walking gear.
When the weather gets cold, put on the Red Dingo Perfect Fit Warm Coat to keep your dog insulated and warm. It is windproof and waterproof, and covers the belly to preserve extra body heat. With unique adjustable strap features on the neck, belly, and chest, this coat can truly be a perfect fit for dogs of all shapes and sizes.

4. Goggles
