What to consider when purchasing fall-themed dog walking accessories

Sizing:​ Many pet products, especially walking accessories, come in a range of sizes. Measure your dog and consult the sizing chart before adding a product to your online shopping cart to ensure that it will be an appropriate fit for your dog. When the gear arrives, adjust it as needed so your dog is comfortable wearing it.

Comfort:​ When picking out festive gear for your dog, look for soft fabrics and adjustable features. While most dogs are accustomed to collars, harnesses, and leashes, some may not tolerate wearing bandanas. If that's the case with your dog, remove the bandana and opt for an accessory they're OK with sporting. You should also make sure that any collar or harness you select for your dog is a sized appropriately and doesn't restrict your dog's movement.
