PHOENIX, April 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring has finally arrived, and PetSmart, the leading pet specialty retailer in North America, has just what pet parents need to help pets celebrate the great outdoors. PetSmart's Arcadia Trail line offers new gear and accessories for pets looking for an adventure. For pets that prefer spending their outdoor time on a patio, PetSmart's new Grrreen collection offers comfy, sustainable apparel that's perfect for lounging. Either way, pets will be entering Spring in style.
For the less adventurous pets that still want to celebrate the great outdoors, PetSmart launched its new Grrreen collection, featuring toys, collars and apparel made from recycled water bottles. Items like the Earth Plush with Rope Dog Toy or the "Keep Our Sea Plastic-Free" Dog Tee are perfect for pet parents looking for sustainable, Green Leaf certified products, verified by an accredited laboratory to confirm sustainability and recycled content they're made with, for quality time outdoors with their pets.
Arcadia Trail™ Collection
"When Arcadia Trail™ launched last year, pet parents loved having innovative, outdoor gear to take their pets along for the adventure," said Kristin Shane, senior vice president of merchandising for PetSmart. "Now, our team is very excited to offer new products to the collection that are not only safe and functional, but also fashionable making pet parents and pets excited to hit the trails."
For pet parents eager to escape into the outdoors, it is important to have a proper collar, harness, and leash for hiking with pets. PetSmart offers a neoprene, water-resistant and highly visible Arcadia Trail Leash that is perfect for keeping dogs safe on a hike. This leash pairs perfectly with the Arcadia Trail Neoprene Sport Harness that features snap buckles and extra comfort for dogs. Pet parents can choose from a variety of functional collars and leashes, made from materials that are water-resistant, reflective or nylon to ensure safety and comfort for your pet.
No matter where pets are going, being prepared is key to ensuring they are safe and happy until they return home, according to Dr. Jennifer Freeman, DVM, PetSmart's resident veterinarian and pet care expert. She compiled a list of tips for pet parents getting ready to take their furry friends into the great outdoors:
- Before leaving on any outdoor adventure, ensure your pet is protected against fleas, ticks, and heartworm disease.
- Check that the destination you're visiting is pet-friendly before arriving. Keep your pet on a leash or tie-out, like the Arcadia Trail Packable Tie Out & Leash.
- Pack extra food, treats, and water.
- Pack your pet's favorite toys and blankets.
- Include a tent, like the Arcadia Trail Ultimate Shade Tent, in your packing list to provide shade and comfort while your pet lounges and recharges from the heat.
- For camping, pack crates, beds, medication, and first aid equipment.
- Ensure your pet has an ID tag and is microchipped with up-to-date pet parent information in case your pet were to become lost or separated from you.
