Winter dog walking essentials for pets & owners

Are you prepared for walking the dog in cold UK winter weather? Here we share our dog walking winter essentials for snug skin and fresh fur.

 

Winter dog walking gear

When walking the dog in cold weather you’ll be glad you invested in some dog walker staples that will see you through a UK winter.

Aside from poo bags and your pet’s coat, collar and lead, you may benefit from adding the following items to your winter walk wardrobe.

  • A warm, waterproof coat
  • Sturdy wellington boots
  • Warm socks
  • Gloves, hat & scarf/neck gaiter
  • A good umbrella
  • Thermals
  • Cosy jumpers/fleece
  • A hoody

Layering your clothes will help to keep you warm on winter dog walks and layering your skin care will help to protect any exposed skin against winter dehydration and sore, cracked skin.

Your hands and face will be most exposed to the elements and by applying nourishing skin care before and after your dog walk you can keep this skin soft and quickly calm any cracks or soreness.

To protect skin on winter dog walks, apply the following products before you leave for your walk.

 

Best balm for winter dog walks

One Balm is the soothing balm we recommend for winter dog walkers. A blend of calming Myrrh Oil and regenerating Frankincense Oil and Rosehip Oil, this skin-protecting product quickly absorbs to create a cocoon of comfort around the skin.

Smooth onto dry cuticles and flaky eyelids to protect against the elements or apply around the nostrils to create a barrier against cold winter winds.

Its pocket-sized biodegradable pot will fit neatly in your winter coat and it can even be used to tame brows and give lips softness and a subtle sheen before you head out for your walk.

Best SPF for winter dog walks

Harmful UV rays can pass through the clouds so a moisturiser with at least SPF15 is a winter dog walk must have! For defence against the sun’s rays and winter winds, apply our Day Solution Cream SPF15. This keeps skin comfy and balanced with the natural emollient Hemp Seed Oil, rich in essential fatty acids that soften and soothe dry, damaged skin.

For stronger sun protection you can apply an SPF30 Facial Sun Cream or, if you prefer, you can protect the face and body with our 30ml sun care products. These are the perfect size for carrying with you on long dog walks and can also be found in our Family Sun Starter Set.

Best hand cream for winter dog walks

A good pair of gloves will help to keep hands warm and nourishing hands with organic hand cream will help to maintain moisture and make it more comfortable for you to hold onto the dog lead. Our Edelweiss & Green Tea Hand Guard is made with SPF15 and will protect against age spots as it shields skin from the sun’s rays and moisture loss.

For a hand cream with antibacterial action choose our Manuka & Lemon Tree Hand Cream. A great hand cream for dog walkers and those that enjoy spending time outside, Lemon Tea Tree oil supports the natural healing of dry, chapped hands while Tea Tree & Manuka provide natural antimicrobial activity and Shea Butter and Olive Squalane lock in moisture to chapped hands.

Keep your fingers fresh with our Deep Cleansing Hand Foam. Use without water whilst out and about or keep it by your sink and rinse away the fluffy foam to thoroughly cleanse your hands once you’re back home in the warm.

Best dog shampoos for after winter walks

A waterproof pet coat will help to protect your pet from the chill of winter winds and will also help to keep coats clean but muddy paths and murky puddles can mean that you need to bathe your dog more frequently during the winter months.

Made with non-irritating, non-toxic natural actives, our fur-freshening allPaws organic pet shampoos are perfect for a post-walk washdown!

 

Cleansing Dog Shampoo - Wild Mint

GREAT FOR

  • All dog breeds
  • Gently bathing pets prone to irritated skin
  • Leaving fur soft and fragrant

Great shampoo for dogs. I have used the wild mint shampoo a couple of times now as being a small dog he gets very mucky on walks at the moment. It has been really good; really gentle so it has not irritated his skin (no flakiness or scratching) and left his coat really silky and shiny, I also love the smell. Thank you Green People for another great product- Melissa

Sensitive Dog Shampoo - Scent Free

GREAT FOR

  • Gently bathing puppies, dogs and cats prone to sensitive skin
  • Pets that cannot tolerate essential oils
  • Owners with sensitive hands that can’t tolerate fragrance or SLS

Echo has slightly sensitive skin, but this shampoo has been a great hit! It seemed to cut through the dirt really easily (after a long few months of rain, every walk is ankle deep in mud!) lathers up well and rinses thoroughly. Her fur is so soft even my husband commented on it. And of course, as I would expect with any Green People product, no adverse reaction to it. Have already ordered the next tube!” - Verica
