Dog walking wellies or walking boots - your choice!

Posted by Bethan Bithell on 1st Feb 2016

With all of the recent extreme downpours, snow storms and high winds, sometimes ordinary walking boots are simply just not good enough - especially when you're out and about walking your pet dog!

So, a good pair of dog walking wellies may be a necessary alternative!

At Cherry Tree Country Clothing we have two Beagles named Bailey and Patch, who absolutely love their walks. If you also have dogs and dog walking welliesare the same as us then, at doggy walking times, you probably look out of the window and if it's wet and windy, you may think "na...not tonight". Then you look at your pets' faces and think "oh...go on then!". Well, how could you say no?

So, you grab your over-trousers, your dog walking jacket and your dog leads, and then you think...Mmm, is it dog walking boots or wellies tonight? Then, you look out of the window again and notice the large rain drops rolling down the window pane and, yes, you go ahead and pull out your wellies from the cupboard!

Why wellington boots rather than walking boots?

In the past, wellington boots may have been uncomfortable, cold and even sloppy around the foot and leg area but nowadays, with new designs and updated manufacturing techniques, wellington boots can be just as comfortable as walking boots - if not more comfortable in some cases!

So, it's worth considering that you could easily move from wearing everyday walking boots to wearing dog walking wellies instead. Well, it's definitely something to think about when planning your future outdoor activities with your four legged friend!

Do remember too, that wearing walking boots can sometimes restrict where you can go, such as chasing your Beagle through rivers and swamps, or perhaps wading through deep snow. Your wellington boots then, can give you the freedom and confidence that you need to splash through streams and brooks without any concerns.

so, to help you make an informed decision about what might be best for you, we have compiled a list of our top five recommended wellington boots, below, for you to consider:

Our top 5 dog walking wellies
