We have a Scruffs Wilton Pet Carrier in colour black for Rocky.

It also includes a convenient fold out water bowl.

Rocky in his Scruffs Wilton Pet Carrier:

Review: Rocky loves carriers. I have been taking him with me wherever possible since he was a puppy which included airplane travels, so Rocky is very much used to carriers. He feels safe and secure in them and even sleeps in them when at home. He immediately jumped into the Wilton Pet Carrier when I unpacked it and I had a difficult time getting him out of it again. He seems to feel very comfortable in it as he is even laying inside it when at home now, rather than his bed.
I really like the Wilton Pet Carrier as it is of good quality and because Rocky loves it. The inside is super soft to touch so I can understand why Rocky is so comfortable in it.
I also like the convenient fold out water bowl which is attached to the carrier.
I would not really want to zip up the carrier as I think Rocky is then a bit cramped in it, but I like having the option to do so. It is also very versatile as it can be used as a carry on pet bed. Rocky loves being in it whether we are out and about or just at home.
Overall a great dog carrier.

Cool Mat

Decription of the Scruffs Cool Mat: "Many pets can suffer from the heat during hot summer months. The Scruffs® Cool Dog Mat is designed to provide relief for pets. Filled with a non-toxic gel the self-cooling mat will be typically 5-10 degrees cooler than room temperature. 
When in use, the mat will maintain its cooling properties for approximately 1hr depending upon the environment. To reset the mats cooling properties simply leave unused for 1hr, there is no need to freeze or refrigerate. 
The Scruffs® Cool Mat can be used alone, with an existing pet bed or in a pet carrier. To clean the mat simply wipe the cover with a cloth and soapy water, then rinse with clean water before use. Available in four sizes, including x-large, the Scruffs Cool Mat is great for dogs that like to sprawl.
The Scruffs Cool Mat is available in 4 different sizes; Small (50 x 40cm), Medium (77 x 62cm), Large (92 x 69cm) and X-Large (120 x 75cm)."
We have a Scruffs Cool Mat in size Small for Rocky.

Review: Rocky usually loves summer and when it's warm outside. However, we had a few days in summer this year that were so hot that even he struggled. A cool mat is great for those hot days as the mat comfortable to lay on and naturally cools while not being too cold.
I think the cool mat would also be great in the car, especially for cars without air conditioning (Note; dogs should NEVER be left in the car on warm/ hot days, not even with a cool mat inside).
I especially like that this cool mat does not have to be gefrigerated or put in the freezer.

Rocky wearing his DOG Copenhagen Comfort Walk Pro Harness:

Review: I like the look and the quality of the DOG Copenhagen Comfort Walk Pro harness. It also is very sturdy. I especially like the handle at the back so that you can quickly grap your dog if need be.
The Colour suits Rocky really well and I love brown colours on him.
The only thing that I would change is to shorten the chest plate. I think for a small breed as Rocky the chest plate is a little bit too long.

Review: I really like the DOG Copenhagen Urban Trail Leash. The leash is very sturdy and robust but yet still light weight. I also like that the leash is so versatile as it has a main handle as well as  traffic handles. I especially love the integrated stuff sack which I personally use for dog waste bags. A brilliant leash all round.
