TAKE FIVE: Barkarama’s Five Hot Summer Picks for Dogs

We’ve got that sweltering summer feeling so we asked Alex and Basil the Boston Terrier from one of our favourite pet blogs, Barkarama to reveal their five hot picks for pooches this summer.  

We don’t know about you but summer is paws down our favourite season. Our petwear choices are brighter, our step is springier, our faces are smilier (Basil’s included) and we’re much more fun to be around. With this cheery disposition in mind, Basil and I share our top five summer picks for your dog.

A whirlwind of social engagements, keeping up with the latest petwear styles, deciding whether to switch to ‘raw’ or not … life can be tiring as a modern dog. Re-charge your batteries with an outdoor snooze in the comfort of the Fatboy Doggielounge Dog Bed. Available in two sizes (small and large) and in an array of colours, we love this bed because not only does it look super comfy but it’s made in moisture-repellent material that can be easily cleaned making in perfect for outdoor use.
