Any dog can benefit from a cozy sweater or jacket once temperatures drop. For tiny dogs, an extra layer helps protect them from the harsh cold. For big dogs, it helps keep them clean and dry. And of course for you, it’s just fun to turn their morning walk into a mini fashion show!
Luckily, there are plenty of stylish choices out there, from fleece-lined parkas to adorable hoodies. Read on for our favorite picks from small businesses. P.S. Don’t forget that their paws need extra care in the colder months, too! Our favorite all natural paw balm keeps their paw pads moisturized and protected during walks.
Now, let’s get into it!
Here are some handpicked favorites that the Springer team swears by to keep their pups warm this season:
Laēlap Daisy Fleece Vest
Brighten up even the gloomiest of days with this sweet daisy patterned vest from Laēlap. The easy on and off snap closures make it perfect for fussy dogs, and it features a convenient leash opening on the back. What’s better is that it’s completely made of upcycled scrap materials, so it’s sustainable too.
Verloop Soundwave Dog Sweater
Verloop is another brand with sustainability in mind. They make all of their knitwear out of deadstock yarn, including this funky dog sweater that comes in two equally fun colorways. They even sell matching (human) scarves, so you and your pup can match while keeping warm.
Little Beast Fantastic Onesie
Little Beast made it onto our gift guide last year, and we’re still loving their fun designs. For frigid temperatures, turn to their extra-warm onesies. It comes in lots of colorways for dogs and owners of all stripes.
Love Thy Beast Lavender Quilted Puffer Snowsuit
This lavender option from Love Thy Beast is perfect for snowy days (and pairs perfectly with our sling bag and leash). It’s lightweight, waterproof, and is made with a poly-fill to keep your pup cozy on the coldest days.
Naadam Holiday Fair Isle Dog Sweater
Yes, even dogs deserve the luxury of cashmere. Naadam makes ethically produced, affordable cashmere goods for both humans and dogs. This one has ribbing at the collar and hem and a festive design fit for the holiday season.
Ware of the Dog Leopard Print Raincoat
Take a walk on the wild side with this bold leopard print raincoat that’s made with fun neon drawstrings and orange lining. The water and wind repellent jacket is fully adjustable with velcro closures, so it fits snug without being too tight.
Bark & Tumble Pink Checkerboard Sweater
Hailing from the UK, Bark & Tumble sells ethically-made pet goods, including these handmade knit sweaters. This pink checkerboard one is especially on-trend, and we also like that it comes in a wide range of sizes, like long and regular options.
Wagwear Fisherman Sweater
If you want a sweater that looks like your dog stepped right into a ‘90s romcom, look no further. This fisherman sweater from Wagwear is made with 100 percent Aran wool, so it’s soft and warm, and it comes in five gorgeous colors.
