Top 10 Winter Products for Dogs

With the Southern Hemisphere winter upon us, the mercury has dropped considerably in many parts of the country. The cooler conditions can be uncomfortable for our furry friends, particularly those with short, sparse coats and older dogs. And being out in the rain can certainly cause our poor pooches to shiver!

So, we have put together a selection of must-have clothing, bedding and other essentials from our Bow Wow Pet Partners to make this winter a warmer, cosier and comfier one for your dog!


Winter clothing

You might think that dressing up your dog is a silly idea but the truth is that one or two items can make a great deal of difference to the comfort of your dog, especially if they’re sensitive to the cold or hate getting wet. It may take a while for them to take to their new wardrobe, but at least they’ll be warm and reasonably dry when it counts.
