Oct. 3, 2008 - PRLog -- Maybe it’s just because we’re located in snowy Vermont, but every year with the changing of the autumnal equinox, our sights shift from the dog days of summer to the blustery cold weeks of winter.  To make sure that your dog stays healthy, comfortable, and happy this winter, you may want to check out these five unique products that are sure to keep tails wagging once the temperature starts dropping.

1. Thermo-heated Dog Bed -

After an extended period of time spent outside playing in cold weather, your dog will appreciate having a heated bed waiting inside.  Heated beds typically offer low levels of therapeutic heat which, aside from providing a comfortable resting area, improve blood circulation and reduce joint and ligament stiffness.  Soothing heat may also help relax dogs that exhibit anxiety, stress, hyperactivity or destructive behaviors.  When choosing a heated pet bed, you will want to remember to look for a bed with thick, orthopedic foam that will provide adequate cushioning for your dog.  Another nice feature that should also be considered is a removable cover, which will allow for easy washing and maintenance.

2.  Insulated Pet Door -

As the temperatures fall, homeowners need to be aware of how much heat is lost and energy is wasted through unnecessary drafts and excessive door opening.  One way to combat this is by installing an energy-efficient pet door.  Long gone are the days of flimsy vinyl flaps allowing heat to escape outdoors wasting money, while allowing drafts to chill the air inside making it uncomfortable for pets and owners alike.  Today’s pet doors offer an array of features that make them incredibly efficient.  For example, the Freedom Pet Pass door features a specially engineered flap that seals tight to the door so even the strongest wind gusts won’t cause the flap to budge.  Its heavy duty thermo-insulated flap remains in place thanks to industrial strength magnets that will keep the cold air out while allowing your pet to easily pass through.

Other doors, such as the Plexidor Electronic pet door, use a remote RFID collar to allow for the door to automatically open and close as your pet comes and goes.  This keeps your door securely in place throughout the day and opens and closes only when your pet needs to leave or enter the house.  Aside from providing an airtight threshold, the automatic pet door provides added security benefits ensuring that only your pet will gain access inside.

3.  Climate Control Unit for Dog Houses -

If your dog would rather stay outdoors in his or her own doghouse, he will appreciate the comforts that come with having a climate controlled environment.  A climate control unit for doghouses provides a four-season solution to even the harshest climates.  Costing roughly $7 per month to run, a climate control unit can heat or cool your dog’s abode while simultaneously dehumidifying and filtering allergens from the air.  These units can be used alone, or can be piggybacked to provide heating and cooling to larger kennels.

4.  Heated Plastic Bowl -

There’s nothing worse for your thirsty pet than heading over to his water dish after a morning of exercise and play to find his water frozen solid.  If you leave your dog’s water bowl outside, you may want to consider plugging it in this year.  By providing your dog with a heated plastic water bowl, you can be sure that your dog will never go thirsty on account of cold weather again.

5.  Waterproof Seat Cover -

Winter is the messiest season for driving.  When bringing your dog along for the ride, you’ll want to make sure that the messy stuff stays on the roads and off of your upholstery.  A waterproof seat cover will not only keep snow and slush from ruining your car seats, but it will also catch any fur, dander, mud, or road salt that your dog may track into the car.  Solvit makes a  waterproof seat cover that is fully washable and features classic colors with a leather trim that will look great in any vehicle.
