20 Winter Warmers for Dogs in 2020

Brrr it's getting cold outside and it's officially snuggle weather time! When you're sharing your bed with your dogs, you notice they're not that keen on early morning starts and quickly make a beeline for the stairs in the evenings.

Not every dog needs help to keep warm but many dogs do. For dogs that live in our heated, insulated homes, they can find going out in winter weather a bit of a shock, especially thin-coated dogs, puppies, elderly or sick dogs or breeds that are not very hardy... 

Our dogs certainly feel the cold too, so we went on the hunt for some great products to help keep our Aussie dogs cosy and warm throughout winter, not to mention on trend!

folded hand-knitted cable jumpers in four colours
These luxury, hand-knitted cable jumpers by Pooky + Boo are proudly made in Western Australia with your pooch’s style and comfort in mind. 

Made from 100% Australian Alpaca yarn, the fabrics are soft to touch and perfect for sensitive skin, with no lanolin to give them highly hypoallergenic qualities.

The yarn is breathable with a slight stretch, with our range of sizes providing the perfect fit for all fur babies. Alpaca fibre is naturally water-repellent and has a light-weight feel, keeping your pooch warm and cosy during all the seasons.

Available in small, medium and large.

The unique design of the Llama Poncho by Alqo Wasi is an homage to the homespun Andean market sweaters of yesteryear…

If you have an older dog or slippery floors (tiles, hardwood), anti-slip dog socks could help prevent a bad fall and literally be a lifesaver!

"Talk to the Pawks, mum!"
We love both the look and quality of the Pawks Anti-Slip Socks by RC Pets. They provide traction on slippery surfaces, paw protection for dogs with foot injuries, increased mobility for older dogs or dogs with hip injuries and help protect your hardwood floors from scratches. 

If you need an indoor/outdoor sock, there’s a Sport Pawks model, which comes with a waterproof silicon sole.

Available in 6 sizes, from XXSmall to XLarge in a range of designs but we couldn’t resist this puppet design! 
The most important is choosing the right size for your dog’s paw (measuring under the paw) as you want them to fit snuggly!
