Turn Your Dog Into ‘Bark Reynolds’

These wag-worthy accessories will make your pup the envy of the dog park.



 

Do you need to treat your dog to some springtime walks because of this “ruff” winter? Why not pamper your precious pup with some new sidewalk-style accessories? We compiled four essentials for your four-legged friends.



 

Is your hipster hound missing an essential piece of facial hair? The See, Sit, Stay, ‘Stache Pet Toy [$13.99], complete with a rubber ball backing your pup will love to chase, just might be what your dashing dog requires.

Available at modcloth.com



 

Pawz [$16.99-$19.99] are reusable, waterproof doggie booties completely crucial for Pittsburgh springtime showers. Sizes range from small to extra large and are available in a rainbow of colors. What would be more adorable than matching rain boots with your pet pal?

Available at A Diamond in the Ruff, 155 S. 18th St., South Side; 412/381-2200, diamondinruff.com/boutique



 

Is your dog a scaredy cat when it comes to loud noises? The ThunderShirt [$39.95] can provide your pup a calming support blanket of sorts with effects similar to swaddling an infant. The shirt provides a constant pressure which helps the nervous system relax and combats animal anxiety. It turns out a relaxed puppy during a thunderstorm isn’t so far fetched after all.

Available at Petagogy, 5880 Ellsworth Ave., Shadyside; 412/315-7050, petagogypgh.com or ThunderWorks.



 

A new collar can offer a fresh look for even the most casual canine. Lupine collars [$7.99-$13.49] feature quick drying nylon webbing just in case your pup wants to take a dip in the pool this summer.

Available at The Dog Stop, 2530 Smallman St., Strip District; 412/315-7050, thedogstop.net
