Now winter is in full swing, many dog owners will be debating whether or not to purchase a winter coat for their furry friend. Although some owners may be hesitant to put clothing on their dog in fear of looking ridiculous, in this day and age it’s not uncommon to see a dog walking down the street in an outfit better than their owners!
Although dogs are born with a coat designed to protect them from the elements, many popular dogs with wool coats or quick growing coats will be regularly groomed to avoid matting and could benefit from extra protection. Equally light bodied breeds, toy dogs or breeds with thin hair may be more comfortable with an added layer, and older dogs who are less mobile may also require more protection throughout the colder months.
With so many coats, jumpers and fashionable accessories now available for our dogs, it’s important to factor in their breed, activity levels, age and general lifestyle when choosing the right outerwear, for instance, you wouldn’t head out on a jog in a wax jacket!
So at Dog Rocks, we have chosen our top 10 doggy clothing and accessories from our friends at Morgan’s Dog Boutique, that we believe both tick the boxes for fashionable and functional!
We love this dog coat! Not only because the beautiful design, but it’s made with genuine suede leather to keep your dog warm during the cold weather with its faux fur lining. It is windproof, durable and weatherproof so is perfect for these colder months.
This coat by Danish Designs is fleece lined and handmade from aged leather so your dog stays as snug as a pug in a rug! The velcro keeps the coat fastened as well as ease of getting on and off your dog.
These handmade harnesses look gorgeously vintage, made with quality leather and designed to a high standard. At Dog Rocks we are a huge fan of harnesses for dogs, not only do they give more more control of your dog by not pulling their neck, a harnesses wont slip off and are more secure for your four legged friend.
This green dragon onesie is perfect for smaller breeds and amazingly cute! In winter time our homes can also get very cold, so whilst you are getting all cosy and warm, why not do the same for your pooch?
So we understand that not all dogs will need a coat or jumper, but we see no reason to pass on neck wear. This tweed bandana is ideal for country living and is great for even the doggiest of dogs!
