Spring is in the air and the potential for milder weather brings with it plenty of opportunities for longer dog walks. Here in Britain, we’re beginning to see the early signs of the easing of lockdown restrictions, which means we may find ourselves outside for longer periods of time.
We love Springtime dog walks. Whether it’s a good run on the beach or a ramble through the countryside, the colours that emerge and the sun in the sky is a welcome relief from the bleak winter. With this in mind, we thought we’d highlight one of our favourite walking accessory brands. Hugo & Hudson have become well renowned for their premium quality dog collars, leads and harnesses that sit alongside a collection of other coordinating accessories. Here we take a closer look at the brand and explore some of our favourite pieces from the range. Your Springtime dog walks will take a style leap when your dog is outfitted in H&H!
The History of Hugo & Hudson
H&H was founded by dog owner Katie and her Labradoodle-breeder friend Francesca. The name came from their own pet’s, Francesca’s Australian Labradoodle Hudson, and Katie’s pet Hugo. They were finding it hard to find a good selection of walking dog products that fused both style and practicality, so thought they’d design their own.
At H&H you will find luxury dog accessories that stand up to daily use. Everything is designed in the UK and they rigorously test all of their products before they are launched. Stitching is designed for strength; buckles are stress tested and everything is designed to provide supreme comfort.
Here we take a look at some of our favourite pieces from the H&H range.
Hugo & Hudson Dog Collars, Leads and Accessories
One of the core parts of the H&H range is their dog walking accessories. Their collars, leads and harnesses come in a fabulous array of fabrics and colours to suit all tastes. Whether it's a tweed harness or a patterned one, your dog walks will be all the more stylish with these H&H accessories!
H&H Herringbone Walking Sets - We adore the pastel shades of the Herringbone walking sets. Available in pale pink or pale blue, each piece is trimmed in grey for a contemporary look. The collar has an adorable bone charm and there is plenty of room on the D-ring for an ID tag. The Harness is ideal for dog walks, when comfort is a must. The harness hugs the body nicely and the girth can be adjusted for a perfect fit. The matching lead completes the look and offers you a good comfortable grip with its breathable mesh-lined handle. Your pup will look super-cute in their herringbone walking set.
H&H Tweed Walking Sets - Do you have a love for the countryside? Adore all things tweed? Then look no further than the Caramel and Dark Green tweed accessories. The Caramel tweed is a gorgeous design; a tan herringbone base with windowpane overcheck and trimmed in a coordinating tan binding. The Dark Green is a classic forest shade with bold red and blue over-check, trimmed in navy. Both available in collars, leads and harnesses. Countryside chic never looked so good!
H&H Stars Walking Sets - Those looking for something more striking and fun will love the Star print collars, leads and harnesses. Available in either red or navy, the fabric features an all-over star pattern on a plain background. Each piece is accented with silver toned buckles and D-rings as well as adjustable straps on the harness.
Hugo & Hudson Dog Coats
We may see lots more sunshine during Spring but that doesn't mean it's always warm, especially here in Britain. Hugo & Hudson have all weathers covered with their range of dog coats. From rainy day raincoats to cold weather puffer jackets there is something here to suit every dog.
H&H Rain Jacket - How adorable is this little doggie raincoat?! This is sure to brighten up any rainy-day dog walk. It comes in a range of 8 sizes and features a fully water-resistant body, adjustable straps and a cute little hood. It’s the perfect coat for a mild, but wet day and can easily be packed down and popped in a travel bag on day trips and holidays.
H&H Reversible Puffer jacket - Springtime in Britain isn’t always mild and on those colder days a heavier dog coat might be needed. This puffer jacket is a Hugo & Hudson signature design and great for cold days. It comes in four striking colours and will keep your dog warm in style on their walks. It’s water-repellent, has a hole in the back so you can thread your lead through to the harness and it’s reversible so has two looks in one. What more could you want in a dog coat?!
H&H Tweed Jacket - One for the countryside lovers, these tweed dog coats are adorable. They come in three gorgeous colours and feature contrasting corduroy collars, an adjustable belly strap and an appliqué logo badge. They coordinate perfectly with the tweed harnesses and walking accessories.
We hope you like our picks of the Hugo & Hudson collection. Aesthetically, there’s something to suit every taste and each piece is practical and will stand-up to your dog’s daily walks.
