Best Dog Walking Gloves
Tuesday, 3 April 2018
Let's face it - the reasons that great dexterity, excellent fingertip sensitivity and abrasion resistance are needed in any good pair of dog walking gloves are unknown to most people out there who have never owned a dog. If, however, you tend to spend even the chilliest winter mornings chasing your furry friend around the park, you know just what we're talking about.
Dog walking gloves need to provide more than thermal protection, because they are in fact used for much more than regular winter gloves. Walking a dog requires keeping a firm grip on their lead, as well as excellent dexterity that allows you to quickly clip or unclip the leash to let them run wild, or perform the most dreadful of all your morning walk tasks - bagging, tying and binning the poop.
