Pets at Home reveals its new summer range

Pets at Home has launched its new summer range for pets, helping owners have plenty of outdoor fun with their furry friends while also keeping them safe and protected in the sun.

From dog-friendly sun cream and cooling vests to ice lollies and garden toys, and even a special summer spa grooming package, there’s something for pets of all sizes.

Throughout July, Pets at Home is also encouraging customers to donate what they can to Hearing Dogs For Deaf People – the charity it is supporting this summer – either by donating online, giving in store or upgrading their dog’s spa package.

Karen Heskin, Head of Pets at Pets at Home, said: “We all know life is better with pets and summer is a great time for making special memories with them, whether that’s in the garden, on a beach, or on a country walk. But it’s important to have the information and products needed to keep pets protected as warm and sunny weather can potentially be dangerous for them.

“Keeping pets cool is essential – always make sure they have shaded areas to relax in and that they have access to cool water – cooling mats and toys can also help. Grooming more frequently, particularly for longer-haired dogs, is also advised and any exposed skin, including on the ears and nose, should be protected with pet-friendly sun cream if they will be spending longer periods out in the sun.”

Pets at Home’s full summer range is available in-store and online from Wednesday 15th June and includes:

Luxury summer spa treatments at The Groom Room

From 15th June until 31st August, you can enhance your dog’s regular groom with a luxury summer spa treatment at The Groom Room.

This will include a Floral Fantasy shampoo & spritz, a hydrating butter treatment, application of teeth clean gel and fresh breath foam, a SPA™ blueberry facial to remove tear stains, as well as paw and nose balm. All pooches will also receive a free summer bow tie to finish off their new look.

The summer spa package can be added for £10, and £1 from every session will go to the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People charity through the Pets at Home Foundation.*

Cooling products:

Prism Water Bottle – £3

Available in turquoise and orange, the Pets at Home prism water bottle is perfect to help keep your dog hydrated when out and about or travelling in the car.

Pets at Home Summer Daze Elastofit Dog Cooling Vest Blue – £15 – £21 (S-XL)

Dogs don’t sweat like we do, instead they cool themselves down by panting. If they’re especially hot, your pooch may need some extra help with a cooling vest that stays cold for up to six hours. Available in sizes, small to extra-large.

Cool Club Watermelon Cooling Dog Toy – £6

This fun watermelon dog toy can be filled with water and put it in the freezer as another way to help keep dogs cool in the warmer weather.

Cooling Mat – £7 – £22 (XS/S – XL/XXL)

This mat is suitable for both cats and dogs and will help to cool them down on warm summer days and after exercise. The mat doesn’t require any water or chilling, simply unfold in a shady spot and the mat is ready to go.

Petkin Doggy Sunmist Spray SPF 15 120ml – £6 (available online only)

If your dog is spending a lot of time outdoors in the summer months it’s best to apply dog-friendly sun cream on areas with less fur or none at all, including the ears and nose, as these are more susceptible to burning.

Summer toys

 Pets at Home Flying Ring Frisbee, £2

Pets at Home has teamed up with the RSPCA to develop this new seal-friendly frisbee for dogs which features an internal frame to ensure that seals can avoid injury.

Sunny Daze Summer Bright’s Rope Cat Toy– £4

This Sunny Daze Rope Toy is full of catnip and includes a jingle bell which will keep cats stimulated and entertained in the garden for hours.

Small Animal Ice Lolly – £3

 

It’s important to make sure small furry pets stay cool too, including rabbits and guinea pigs, by ensuring they have enough water and are in the shade. These ice lolly chew toys will also keep them entertained in the summer months and look after their teeth at the same time.
