9. Outdoor gear. Many dogs need a cozy jacket during cold weather. If your Fido is acclimated to indoor temperatures, he’d appreciate a snazzy coat to keep the chills away. While you’re shopping for doggy gear, keep your eyes open for a reflective leash and collar. These can literally be lifesavers if your pooch is near traffic after dark.
10. Time with you. Remember that your pet’s world revolves around you. Nothing makes your furry friend happier than having extra hugs and snuggle time.
