Apartment Living — For the Urban Pooch
This one is for urban pups and pawrents (or just anyone who wants to know)! We know how it can be living with a pup in a smaller space — so here are our apartment essentials to make things a little easier for you and comfortable for your pup.
We cannot recommend this enough! Instead of walking your dog downstairs, invest in a Potty Plant which is a patch of fresh grass that can be moved around and left on your balcony. We also recommend The Pee Patch who sells both fresh and artificial grass patches. You can even customise your Pee Patch with your furbaby's name!
A Cosy Dog Bed
It's important to be efficient with space when living in an apartment. Our top pick is Fable Pet's Dog Crate — it's a dog bed and side table all in one! This crate is perfect for the minimalist interior designer. If you've got a bit more space or just a bigger dog, see our top dog bed picks so your pooch can sleep in both comfort and style.

Dog Grooming Products
Although adorable, we know dogs can smell a bit like... well, dogs. The last thing anyone wants is for your apartment to smell like dogs too. One of our favourite brands is The Hound Lab. This Byron based brand creates pooch friendly, eco-friendly, cruelty free grooming products. Their packaging is gorgeous — just be careful not to mistake their dog products for your skincare products. Read here for more brands formulating grooming products with natural ingredients to keep your dog's coat healthy and smelling fresh.

Engaging Toys for Dogs
To keep your dog occupied while you're at work, out for drinks or just running errands it's important to have some engaging dog toys. We're big fans of adding a touch of personal style to our dog's things and Lambwolf Collective is doing exactly that! Their play objects are blurring the lines between dog things and human things. These chic toys won't look out of place amongst your interiors and they're sure to keep your dog mentally and physically engaged.
