...I’ve seen some rather ruff fashion choices out there at the dog park and while I’m not into hounding humans about their Fido fashion choices, please remember, we’re the ones that have to wear these dog jackets and jumpers. I know that you paw parents dress us cause you love us and are just trying to make us snuggly on the cold winter days, but we woofers have our dognity and we still like to look stylish while we’re being kept warm.
But it’s not just about looks. We also like to feel comfortable in our dog clothes, and be able to run, jump, dig, scratch, sniff, roll and all the other doggie things we do.
Fortunately, my best friends at Kazoo have come up with a range of Winter Warmers that look great and feel even better.
So today, me and a few of my friends are going to put on a little fashion paw-rade for you and show you that we can be warm and stay cool at the same time.
But before we do, let’s meet the models.
Right, so now you’ve met the crew, follow me and let’s check out some of the amazing Kazoo winter-wearable designs.
I just know you’re gonna dig ‘em.
This retro designed dog jacket was inspired by one of Australia’s favourite biscuits. And with its funky colour combo Simba knows that he looks good enough to eat.
And talk about hot dogs. The ultra-warm, ultra-comfortable lining on this piece of puff-ection has Simba feeling warm and looking hot, hot, hot. VOVO VOOM!
Simba gave this one a pawfect 5 outta 5 score. And who can blame him. A dog coat stylish enough to grab a doggo Latte in, or take an adventurous strutt through the forest, this little ensemble rates highly in Simba’s everyday fine fashion stakes. He even rates the little zip up coat pockets, great to keep the odd treat (or poo pouch) within.
Fresh off the ski fields, this easy-zip, sports inspired washable dog jacket is what all the cool dogs are wearing.
He’s loving those cool cuffs, stretch fabric and contoured fit. What’s even better is that it zips on and off quickly... meaning more time to play!
All princesses struggle to choose outfits sometimes, but with this chic little dotty ensemble, the job’s done for her. That's because this dog outfit is reversible in two colours so perfect for the... ahem, indecisiveness of certain canines. This snuggie is soft, stretchy, spotty and so tasty that even Piper is licking her lips.
She’s done it again. Another great two-looks-in-one snuggie! Piper can hardly believe her luck. The tongue is in FULL effect here. Once again, a dog design that panders to her fickle fashion choices.
No need to choose a favourite after all. And with its ultra-comfortable soft padding, this snuggle is the perfect soft coat for winter snuggles. Sorry boys, that’s snuggles with mum.
Old dogs can be just as adventurous as the younger pups and Snowy’s here to prove it. He loves a good street stroll n’ sniff come rain, hail or shine, so this waterproof easy to wear dog raincoat gets a solid 4 paws of approval. He’s rather taken with the bold neon orange - is it a joke that the vision impared dog tries on the high vis coat?! Either way, it really helps him to stand out from the pack!
He might be called Snowy, but he is turning the heat way up in this dashing designer dog wear. This super-stylish dog coat is inspired by tailored contouring and fits Snowy’s bod like a glove. But it doesn’t just look good, it’s super practical too with a harness hatch, functional pockets, and a cosy warm fleece lining.
We asked Snowy to pick a third jacket as well, but he declined. He knows it’s not caninely possible for a pooch to look more handsome than this.
There’s a lot to love about wide-chested doggo breeds from staffies to English Bulldogs, or in Shadow’s case, the Aussie Bulldog - but finding a dog jumper that fits over their ample assets isn’t always easy. That’s why Shadow is loving this rather “giving” knit. It’s cosy, it’s stretchy and the leg straps help it from riding up. The pink stripe really picks up on those tongue hues too.
Ok, what was that about stripes not being slimming...? Shadow paws-down rates the soft knit Lilly Pilly dog jumper as her new favourite. Even mum is loving the soft stretch knit! She’s getting constant strokes and cuddles in this darling doggy fashion look.
Nothing’s going to rain on Shadow’s paw-rade. She’s not a fan of wet walks but thinks they’ll be much more enjoyable now that she can stay dry whilst pounding the pavement in this dog raincoat. She’s also diggin the high vis neon and reflector trims - attention junkie!
Gomez’s own fur coat is fantastic, but we might just have found one that’s even better! This dog coat allows him to do what dogs do best - digging, running, sniffing, playing and exploring. The cosy inner lining is warm and comfy, while the water-resistant outer keeps him dry when things get a bit... messy. Awesome active wear for dogs, and mum can just chuck it in the wash at the end of a good park session.
He’s a runner, he’s a digger, he’s a swimmer. And now, he’s a jumper.
This chunky knit dog jumper with its rugged roll down collar is built for the great outdoors. And not that he would ever admit to feeling cold, but he doesn’t put up too much of a fuss when mum slips this on before a cold winter’s walk.
Pretty in pink. Pretty tough that is! It takes a canine that’s confident in himself, like Gomez, to pull off a snappy little loveheart dog jumper like this. Simply the perfect little number for a dog who wears his heart on his sleeve, or in this case, on his back.
Ok. It’s time to say chow now humans.
