The nights are growing longer and the weather turning crisp. We’ve brought out our winter woolies and are enjoying hot drinks in front of the fire after our morning dog walks. We love the colours and textures of homewares and clothing in the Autumn/Winter months. Here we’ve selected some of our favourite items that are just perfect for the colder months ahead.
We love all of our dog crate bedding, but there’s something so warm and cosy about the Balmorals range at this time of year. Available in three beautiful colours to suit all kinds of interiors, the covers are super durable and really do make your crate look stunning. We make crate covers, bumpers and cushions - all washable on a 30° delicate cycle.
Zara loves nothing more than napping in hers by the woodburner!
If your dog prefers sleeping on a cushion to a crate, then the balmoral twist cushions are perfect. Available in all the same tweeds as the crate sets, they feature two different tweeds on the top and bottom, allowing you to twist the cushion for a different look. Super plump, the cushions will offer your canine friends the comfiest slumber imaginable - perfect for relaxing after long winter walks! The cushions come in 5 sizes and fit in most standard crates if you wish to use as a crate cushion.
Add a sumptuous blanket to your dog or cat’s bed this winter. Our luxury blankets are made here in our Lincolnshire workshop and will make your pet’s bed even more inviting. Available in a range of colours, there is a blanket to coordinate with all of our bedding sets.
We also make sumptuous velvet beds which are perfect for this time of year. They look and feel so cosy and are ideal for Winter afternoon naps by the fire. Available in five sizes for dogs and a 24” round version for cats and toy breed dogs.
You may wish to give your dog some protection from the elements when out exploring and the range of coats from Mutts & Hounds is just adorable. There are a number of fabrics and finishes available to suit all tastes. We are particularly in love with the waterproof wax which is particularly handy for the recent wet weather and coordinates with our Barbour jackets beautifully!. Come frosty mornings, we’ll probably opt for the oh-so-stylish tweed versions.
You’ve got the designer dog coat, but what about matching walking accessories? Tweedmill make a wonderful collection of collars and matching leads that are ideal for outdoor adventures in the Autumn/Winter months. We love the matching bow tie and bandana accessories too - the perfect finishing touch to your dog’s look!
Dog jumpers are not just a fashion accessory, they offer a layer of warmth to your dog who may feel the cold more. Perfect for small and short haired breeds who don’t have the same insulation as their longer haired cousins.
Dog drying coats have become somewhat of an everyday essential and we suggest every owner have one. At this time of year they are not only great for bath time, but are great for days out too. We suggest keeping one in your travel bag as they’re ideal for wet-weather-walks - you can pop it on your dog before you get back in the car which saves soggy car furnishings! The country collection coats are our favourite for this time of year - we love that they match out Schöeffel fleeces!
An absolute essential for any pet owners who travel by car in the winter, is a cover to protect your back seat and/or boot. The covers will prevent your dog from wetting or muddying your car furnishings after walks on the beach or in the countryside. They are also great for other chores such as trips to the recycling or garden centre.
A really small, but super practical item for travel bags, Animology clean sheets are great for quick Clean-ups on the go. Wipe excessive muddy paws or splashes from your dog before they get back in car to limit the mess caused to car furnishings. They are really handy to keep in utility rooms and back porches so you can do a quick wipe down before letting your dog back in the house.
