Over the recent years pet fashion has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry, with high street stores like River Island all the way up to big named labels such as Ralph Lauren and Burberry creating items just for pets. You can get anything from simple sweaters and rain jackets all the way through to high-end ball gowns for those pooches who like to live the luxury lifestyle. With the cold weather rushing in, now is the time to treat your fur babies to some winter clothing. Here I will be showing you the most iconic styles for the season.
Waterproof rain jackets are definitely a must for this weather, as England rains on average 133 days of the year. These jackets can also be used in minus temperatures as some come with a fur layer on the inside to keep your four-legged friends warm. All of these jackets are machine washable and come in various different colours and sizes. This very fashionable padded green coat comes with a fleece liner and adjustable velcro straps for a very reasonable price of £11.95. To view this product go to ideas4pets.co.uk
When the weather is chilly, why not treat your dog to a knitted jumper? You can choose from a variety of different styles and some websites even let you design your own patterns. You can also get matching accessories such as socks and bobble hats just like I did for my French Bulldog. Breeds with pointier ears are more susceptible to the colder climates so this factor alone is why you should go the extra mile to keep them protected. Take a look at this gorgeous red knitted turtle neck, this item will ensure that you keep your fur baby warm yet fashionable. This item has been created to keep the heat in which is important for those wintery walks. This is available at https://www.etsy.com/
Many companies are now tailoring jumpers and fleeces to specific dog breeds. Take a look at this pug fleece, available at https://www.equafleece.co.uk/dogs/fleece/dog-coat. The pug fleece is tailored to breeds with wider necks and chests such as pugs and French bulldogs, in order to create a more comfortable fit reducing rubbing to our sensitive friends. One of the biggest causes for skin irritation is down to clothing rubbing, which is a common thing for these breeds, eliminating that factor keeps our little friends in better shape.
As well as buying knitted jumpers, you can also have a go at creating your own. This will be fun and informative and will also add some sentimental value to these items. If you’ve got the time and want to have a some fun then why not give it a go! Here are a few tips on how to get creative.
I hope you all enjoyed reading this blog and hopefully it inspires you all to treat your fur babies to these wonderful items. If any of them are like mine then you’ll have a hard job catching them once they see the clothes 😂
