In your home, there are a few basic things that you are going to need for your dog. Without these items, you won’t have the right tools to not only care for your pooch, but also to train them. At Philomena London, we strive to provide as many products as possible to make your dog feel right at home. In the Doggy Handbook series, we will be looking at some fantastic training tips, the essential products, and also some great guides on activities and days out that are completely dog friendly. This first chapter will take a look at some of the basic items you need for your dog.
Food and Water
Of course, every dog needs food and water – but they also need a bowl for each as well. There are so many different bowls to choose from, as well as a wide price range so you don’t need to feel pressured into spending a fortune. We have bowls ranging from £4 to £60, so make sure to check out the section on our website here.
We also have a great range of food and treats from the Natural Dog Food Company, which is made from completely natural ingredients for a better and healthier food. Plus, dogs absolutely love it. Make sure you stock up on the treats – they will be essential for training!
Every dog needs a comfy bed to sleep on. After all, chasing rabbits all afternoon and playing with friends can be exhausting work. So when the day comes to an end and it’s time to settle down, dogs want somewhere soft and warm to curl up for the night. We have a fantastic range of dog beds available from Charley Chau and John Whitaker, so that your canine companions can have sweet dreams and a comfy rest. Check out our selection here.
The dog walk is the part of the day every pooch looks forward to the most. When out on the field or in the dog park, they want to look their best, and what better way to express that than with a fantastic new collar and lead? We have an absolutely amazing range of collars and leads available from a range of designers – including us!
If you are looking for something low cost but with amazing designs, then Sweetpea and Boo are the ones you should look at. On the other end of the spectrum, you can take a look at our own line of collars with Charlotte Dujardin that are made from soft English leather. Plus, we have everything in between, with brands like Pioneros and Simba Jones. Take a look at our entire range here.
Toys are so important to dogs, both as a form of entertainment but also distraction. We have a great range of Beco toys available, which are made from all natural material and also incredibly durable. The plush toys are double stitched and we have a great character selection, as well as three sizes so that every dog can have one. The rubber bones and balls are really tough, perfect for dogs who like to have a good chew. Plus, the fact that they are all natural means that if they tear a chunk off of one of the bones there is a lot less panic is it ends up being swallowed.
Every dog needs to poop on a walk, and often people are reluctant to clean it up because of the impact on the environment that plastic bags have. Well, we have the answer to your concerns in the form of the Beco eco-friendly poop bags.
It only takes a matter of weeks for these to start decomposing and they are 100% biodegradable, so there are no negative effects on the environment. Plus, they come in two sizes – so the bigger dogs are accommodated for. At an affordable price and with the option to buy an eco-friendly poop bag holder, these are a great buy and essential for any dog walk. Take a look here.
