With all the beautiful weather we’ve been experiencing in Britain it may seem like Autumn is still an age away; but September is only just around the corner. We’re secretly counting down the days until the first leaves fall and turn to golden orange; we can take long country walks in the crisp mornings and then return to a cosy fire and drink hot chocolate. Snugly knitwear, Halloween, the run-up to Christmas… all just a few of our favourite things! Here in the L&L office we’ve already started thinking about our Autumn wardrobes and of course our dog’s. From cosy doggy knits to stylish tweed coats we have a lovely range of canine fashion. Here we look at dog coats, the options available and try to help you decide which is best for your four-legged friend.
House of Paws Quilted Country Dog Coat
For all the countryside lovers we have the quilted coats from House of Paws, in brown or navy. Now when you’re wearing your Barbour quilted jacket your little pup can match your style. Available in four sizes to fit small to medium sized breeds (roughly from Jack Russel to springer Spaniel). You can even have it personalised to make the coat ultra-special.
House of Paws Tweed Dog Coat
If tweed is your thing then this style from House of Paws might be just up your street. A wonderfully stylish dog coat lined in a super soft and snugly fleece it features a contrast collar in cream faux sheepskin. Available in the same size range as the quilted coats to fit small to medium breeds. It comes in a lovely brown or a striking green check tweed for those doggies looking to stand out in the crowd.
Handmade Minkeys Tweed Dog Coats
If you’re looking for something more bespoke; perhaps your dog is an unusual shape or size, then the Minkeys Tweed range of coats may be just what you’re looking for. The perfect choice for long bodied dachshunds and sighthounds! There is a plethora of colour and pattern choices and they’re available with either a matching or contrasting belt. Each coat is made from luxurious Yorkshire Wool tweed and feature contrasting faux sheepskin collars. A waterproof option coat has recnently been added to the collection with a contrast tweed belt. The coats are available in a broad range of off-the-peg sizes, but can also be made to specific measurements. Whilst you’re browsing take a look at the matching blankets!
Minkeys Tweed Sizing
When purchasing the off-the-peg sizes, measure your dog from the nape of the neck to the base of the tail to find their size. Then if you wish to have the coat made bespoke, add in any extra measurements you think are important eg, if your dog has a particularly wide girth, you may wish to add this in to the order notes and the coat will be made accordingly.
