Must Haves for Fall Weather
Reflective Harnesses
This may be something you consider a year-round staple, but when it comes to shorter periods of daylight and the fall equinox, having a reflective harness is a must when out adventuring with your dog. With one, you can walk or hike at ease, knowing that you (and others) can see your dog.

Dog Boots
Protecting your dog's paws is extremely important. Whether it be rough terrain, thorns, or rocks — sharp materials can definitely cause your canine some discomfort. But dog boots will allow for safe autumn adventures so you can jump in the leaves together or run through the mud without a trip to the groomer immediately after.

Dog Jackets and Coats
While not every dog needs a jacket, some dogs benefit from one in colder weather. Small, short-haired dogs, skinny, and senior dogs could use an extra layer. A waterproof coat is also nice to have if you plan on going out when it's rainy or snowy. Jackets can also help to prevent fur from becoming matted from the weather.

Nice To Haves for Fall Weather
Cozy Dog Beds
After a morning walk in the brisk, fall air, let your dog relax on a cozy and comfortable dog bed. They’ll sleep better and warm up faster if they have a particularly fluffy bed they love. Treat yourself to a cup of hot apple cider while they are treated to a quick nap.

Warm Dog Blankets
During an especially cold day, your dog may prefer a heated, warm area to snuggle up in. A fluffy blanket can be just the right type of comfort to leave on the floor or drape over a couch. Plus, if they're damp from a walk or after a bath, rolling around in a soft blanket can help them dry off and warm up.

Dog Sweaters
Celebrate the true wardrobe of fall with your canine companion. Put them in a fuzzy sweater before heading out for a walk or for a quick adventure to your local farmer's market to keep them cozy. They're also amazing for an adorable photo op — as long as your pup keeps it on.

Dog Leashes
The cool fall weather and foliage make it a great time for long nature walks. It's also a good idea to refresh your worn-out summer leash. A durable or reflective leash can be a great option, and be sure to give your dog plenty of slack so you can practice heeling together. A long, durable, and effective leash can last for years, too.

Splurges for Fall Weather
Heating Pads
Take off your canine's coat and have them snuggle up on a small, pet-safe heating pad. They give off just the right amount of heat (not too hot!), especially if you like to keep the windows open or go camping. While some heating pads are electric, others have insulation that makes them self-warming.

Dog Seat Covers
As much as we love taking our dogs on outdoor adventures, we don't love all the mud, leaves, and sticks they drag into our cars. Instead of washing down your interior after a hike, invest in a dog-friendly seat cover for your own car. They'll be more comfortable and a little less messy.
