Why Dogs Need Blankets
Many Sidewalk Dog pups are down for anything—road trips, park days, patios—but even the most confident canine craves comfort. Life is unpredictable, and a dog’s blanket provides a great deal of security both in and out of the home.
Natural Nesting: Dogs find comfort in places they associate with the coziness of a den. They can paw, nuzzle, and rearrange a blanket to create a comfortable nest.
Portable Comfort: Traveling and unfamiliar places can be stressful for dogs. A favorite blanket with familiar scents of their home and humans provides a calming sense of security to pups on the go.
Easy Care: Blankets are the perfect accessory, and easier to wash than dog beds. No need to stress when morning pup cups get a little out of control. Blankets also protect furniture from accidents, scratches, and pet hair. Shed-wash-repeat!
For the shelter and foster pups, a soft blanket is crucial to providing warmth and safety while they wait for new families.
In the last 3 years, Tall Tails has donated thousands of blankets to shelter pets in need. Be a part of this continued effort by shopping for your sidekick, granddog, or anypuppy in your life. Tall Tails will handle the rest.
