The Perfect Leash for Mountain Hiking
A leash and harness suitable for the mountain environment are essential for your dog’s comfort and safety. .The mountains are indeed a place of well-being for your dog, but beware of certain dangers! That is why it is always a good idea to have a leash at hand, especially if you plan to take trails at high altitudes.
The Flippy One leash by Ferplast is perfect for mountain hikes. It’s extendable, giving your dog freedom of movement, and features an ergonomic button for easy adjustment: free sliding, momentary lock and permanent lock. This makes it possible for you to adjust the lead to suit your needs. Finally, the handle is ergonomic and comfortable and is resistant to the dog’s stresses, to ensure perfectly safe walks and outings!
For more challenging treks, the robust Ergocomfort leash ensures you can keep your dog close and safe.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for a traditional but robust leash, you can opt for Ergocomfort. Very robust, it features a comfortable ergonomic handle to ensure a secure grip and maximum comfort.

Essential Dog Mountain Accessories

Always remember to take food with you! You can opt for some snacks and kibble, which you can store in convenient travel containers such as Pet Ristò! In addition, you will find the Yappy travel bowl, made of non-slip silicone rubber, ideal for your dog’s food and water in the mountains. It folds up into itself and takes up very little space. You can easily slip it into a bag or backpack and always have it at hand, ready for use.
If you want to take fresh, clean water with you, you can alternatively opt for Water bottle designed specifically for travelling with your pet. Once closed, it takes up little space and allows you to always quench your furry friend’s thirst.
Your rucksack absolutely cannot be without multi-purpose sanitising wipes, such as the Genico Fresh by Ferplast. These are moistened cleaning wipes with a pleasant refreshing effect. They are alcohol-free and therefore particularly gentle on the skin and also suitable for puppies.
Finally, since the weather in the mountains can also change very quickly, remember to always carry a windproof cape as a precaution. The Sailor by Ferplast is excellent for sheltering your dog in the mountains from rain and gusts of wind, thanks to its waterproof fabric and comfortable hood.
With these essentials, you and your dog are ready to conquer the mountains! Stay safe and enjoy your adventure.
