~ Summer Hound ~

In 2021, Summer Hound was launched. Summer Hound is a New Zealand based business who make and sell a range of cooling accessories for dogs. From cooling bandanas to summer bands to wrap around your dog’s neck to help them stay safe during the warmer months. 

Founder, Janina, wanted to create something for her Greyhound, Romeo. Greyhounds don’t tolerate heat very well and Romeo is no exception. He would often pant for long periods of time and when out, would find shaded spots. 

Janina hated seeing Romeo suffer every year with the heat. He has helped her through many tough times and has brought her immense happiness. She wanted to help him as a thank you for everything he has done for her. 

After a while, Janina remembers waking up one night with a business idea. That idea soon flourished. She wanted to create some products for Romeo and other dogs to stay cool in the summer. With some encouragement from her partner, Janina decided to pursue this idea and so, Summer Hound was born. 

Having only launched recently, Summer Hound already has a variety of designs and two different styles of cooling accessories. They are easy to use and help to cool your doggo – and even cats – down. Not only does Janina sell great products, but she uses her platform to educate pet parents on summer safety for animals. 

Animals can feel the heat a lot more than humans. While humans can sweat, animals’ bodies are different and express heat differently, such as panting in dogs. It can even be dangerous for some as it can lead to some serious health conditions. This is why Janina shares so much awareness around summer safety, to help others understand the dangers of summer and prepare for it and prevent any issues. 

One of Janina’s favourite things is seeing dogs wearing and using Summer Hound accessories. In New Zealand, many enjoy a summery day and being with friends – furry friends included, of course! So with these accessories, it allows pet parents to spend that time together without having to worry about the heat impacting their furbabies. 

Summer Hound is an awesome business. They create amazing products to help your canine companions, as well as spread awareness about summer safety. It is obvious how much passion Janina has for what she does and how much love goes into it. If you want some cooling accessories, then make sure you check out Summer Hound!
