You may have noticed a little chill in the morning breeze or the nights becoming a much more comfortable sleeping temperature, and that’s because Winter is coming.
As the mercury begins to drop, it’s important to prepare your pet for the Winter months to avoid illnesses and ensure your pet is as toasty as you are throughout the colder months. To help you plan, we have put together a selection of products from businesses in bushfire and drought affected regions throughout Australia. We are in the midst of one crisis but those in the bush have come out of one and into the next and need a little extra help. All these products come in the perfect size to fit your greyhound.
