Is your daily dog walk getting a little dull? Don’t worry, we all fall into a funk – especially when it’s the same routine every day. We know you don’t want to disappoint your pup, so perhaps it’s time to spice up your outings.
Walking your fur child every day is vital to their overall wellbeing, so it’s really important to add variety to what could become a mundane task. At Valgray, we’ve got you and your pooch covered! Here are our top recommendations for fabulous and fun daily dog walks:
Try switching things up and allow your pup to be your navigator on your walk instead of taking the same old route. This is a really great way to get to know your fur baby because you can observe what your darling doggie finds interesting, where they would like to explore, and how they react to new things.
Walks aren't just good exercise; they’re also a really great way to keep your doggie mentally stimulated. Let them sniff things out with a few sniff breaks throughout your walks so they can suss out an area. Find out more about doggo sniff breaks from local dog mom and her sassy Spaniels on Max & Willow.
Join community and charity events, like the annual SA Guide Dog Walkathons, to make your walks purposeful and meaningful. Plus, you’ll feel great knowing you helped to raise funds for a worthy cause.
We recommend looking for local events on Facebook and Instagram as these platforms are fantastic resources to find charitable events. Which brings us to our next suggestion...
Invite your besties (and even your mom) along for a walk with your pup. Some extra company will probably get your pup's tail wagging because more friends are always very exciting. If your doggo is social, perhaps arrange a playdate with other pet parents and fur kids.
While you’re at, use your phone to take a few snaps and videos to share on your social media. Who knows, your designer pup could become a social media phenomenon!
Did you know Starbucks serves Puppachinos? And loads of local coffee shops and sidewalk cafés are following in their footsteps. Why not take a walk to your local dog-friendly coffee spot and grab something with your pup.
Turn the sidewalk into a catwalk with our designer dog collars and leashes for all size dogs. Trust us, the stylish colours and eye-catching finishes will make you and your pooch stand out from the rest of the pack. Every collar purchased on our website also comes with FREE personalised laser engraved tags and FREE nationwide shipping in South Africa

Helping doggos in need is a cause that’s really close to our heart, which is why we have a Valgray charity drive every year. Over the years we have been proud to donate much needed blankets and dog food to the incredible animal rescues you recommended, as well as gifting designer dog collar and leash sets to newly adopted pooches so they can start their new lives in style.
Valgray is one of the few brands that caters for all dog sizes. From our extra-small collars for the truly tiny pooch to the extra-large collars for giant breeds, we go the extra mile to make sure your fur-babies can put their best paw forward.
It’s important to measure your pup’s neck to make sure your new collar will fit comfortably. Remember to include some space around the neck for your pooch’s safety and comfort. As a rule of thumb, you should be able to fit two or three fingers between the neck and collar.
Once you have your doggo’s measurements, check our sizing guide below for the best collar size.
No problem! You can use a variety of household items to safely measure your dog’s neck. See our guide here.

We try our best to cater to every breed, but some doggos might need a little extra at-home customisation to achieve the perfect fit. Making adjustments to our soft, PVC-coated nylon straps at home is easy. Simply use a standard leather punching tool to add additional holes, or use a utility knife to trim the length of your collar.
