The Spring season inspires you and your pet to trek through the great outdoors or just enjoy an extra hour at the park, you can spiff up your pooch’s look with a new piece of clothing. Whether your canine needs a protective piece of gear or a snazzy shirt, the right apparel can add comfort and style to his warm weather excursions. Our friends at Zootoo rounded up some of their favorite pieces of dog clothing for spring to help your pet feel cozy and look chic all season long.
If your dog is hitting the outdoors in wet and windy spring weather, try the K-9 Overcoat from Ruff Wear. Made with recycled materials, this well-constructed coat allows for generous freedom of movement for your active pet and has reflective piping for extra visibility. And the durable overcoat is also a snap to clean.
A stylish shirt that’s also environmentally conscious, the Recycled Benny Polo from Eco-Pup uses 100% reclaimed cotton from “people clothing” to create a classic, comfy garment. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, and for the retail price – under $20 during some online sales – this machine-washable shirt is also a good bargain.
If spring seasonal weather brings more rain than sunshine to your neck of the woods, help your canine stay cozy with the Snuggie for Dogs from As Seen on TV. The comfortable garment attaches at several different settings to help you achieve the right fit, and the insulated fabric did not cause our tester dog irritation during outdoor walks.
Functional as well as fun, Doggles Protective Eyewear for Dogs offer your pooch’s pupils 100% UV protection from the sun’s rays as the weather warms up. And these shatterproof lenses – used by military and other working dogs – also give your canine’s eyes a buffer against the dust, sand, and dirt that can be kicked up during an active outdoor exercise session.
Dress your dog in an irresistible piece of spring apparel that can also be a literal lifesaver – the Doggy Life Jacket from Paws Aboard. This protective jacket features a top handle to allow you to grab your dog quickly during emergencies, as well as reflective strips for additional safety. And the jacket is available in a range of eye-catching prints for the discerning dog.
