3 Adorable AND Useful Dog Apparel Items for National Dress up Your Pet Day



Did you know that January 14th marks “National Dress up Your Pet Day?” If not, that’s okay… obscure festivities occur all the time. Besides, it’s important to pick and choose the best ones to recognize. While your nutty neighbor may get excited about “Squirrel Appreciation Day,” it probably didn’t make your personal top-five list of days to celebrate.

Yes, that was probably a far-fetched example… but in all seriousness we love the idea of “National Dress up Your Pet Day!” Don’t get us wrong though, we are not advocating that you purchase a custom-made fedora for your fashion-forward Fido. Instead, we are advocating that you consider gear or apparel that is both adorable and useful for your furry friend.

Take a minute to check out our list of 3 products that your dog might actually enjoy sporting this winter:

1. Cozy Animal Character Sweater


Need we say more? Just look at those cute hand-knitted hoodies! Dogids.com sells three options for you to choose from: the shark, monkey or moosey. If you enjoy venturing into the cold for a brisk morning walk with your pup, consider a sweater that’s guaranteed to grab the attention of other pet-owner duos strolling the neighborhood.

2. Reflective Collar


During the darker winter months, nothing is more useful than a reflective collar at night. Our friends at Kurgo offer this “Reflective Wander” collar in three sizes (small, medium, large) and three different colors. One reviewer wrote that this particular collar was favored over four other collars that had been too scratchy for their dog to wear comfortably.

3. Water Resistant Dog Jacket


If you live in colder or wetter areas, it might be time to consider a jacket for your dog. Muttropolis offers this water resistant jacket in five sizes so you can be sure to find the perfect fit. With three color options, you may even be able to find a jacket that matches your own! Matching is always chic… right?

Staying Connected On the Go

Understandably, many of your winter outings will just require that you leave your pet at home. Whether you’re at work, on vacation, or out running errands, you can still stay connected to your best friend on the go with the izon pet cam. Your izon app will allow you to check in on things anytime, anywhere. This means you can make sure your caregivers are taking great care of your pet while you’re away, as well as ensure that your furry friend stays out of trouble during your daily activities.
