6 Pet Essentials You Need on Hand for Your Next Walk

Walking your dog twice a day, every day might seem like a chore when you don’t have the time for it or are scrambling around last minute for the leash. Setting up a routine and having all the pet essentials right at the door is key to making sure you and your furry family members are getting your steps in. Today we round up six pet essentials you should always have on hand for your next walk, whether it’s a trail hike or just a stroll around the neighborhood!

A quality leash and collar set is one of those items you should splurge on if you’re going to be using it every day. You’ll definitely feel the difference with this Terracotta Leash and Terracotta Collar from Herzog, made with 100% cotton canvas and weatherproof silicone. Plus, your pup will look so good – our #dogintern Koda is proof of that!

If your dog is especially excited for your walks and tends to pull a lot, a harness is better suited for them because it discourages the pulling more effectively than collars. This harness kit from JUST FRED comes with a leash, harness and pouch for holding keys or poop bags.

Something about a nice poop bag holder just elevates the act of picking up doo doo. It’s just a part of the dog walking duty (haha). This one by Wild One is made from soft touch plastic and features an elastic loop for easy attachment to your leash.

wagwear wellies


With summer just around the corner, you want to make sure your dog’s paws are protected from hot pavements which can burn their paw pads. These boots from WagWear are made exactly for this reason. Open slits in the design help to easily slide on and off and perforated holes allow for lots of ventilation.

On the flip side, if it’s raining, having a raincoat makes getting back into the house that much easier and less messy, especially when your dog does the inevitable wet body shake when you get inside. Inspired by fishermen raincoats of the Spanish Atlantic coast, this raincoat from The Painter’s Wife is made using recycled polyester that comes from the reeking and purification press of plastic waste collected from oceans, fishing nets and textile fiber waste.
