Let’s face it, the chilly season is a great excuse to ‘glam it up’ to the bow-wow! Don't wait until winter well and truly hits to start looking super cool on the street, autumn is a great time to update your dog-robe.

To help you find the paw-fect winter woollies to keep you feeling warm and looking cooler than a Crufts winner (no need to thank me) I’ve rounded up a selection of the latest and best finds to take you to the end of the chilly season, in style.

Attention fellas! This post contains a lot of pink. Never fear, these fashions come in a whole bunch of colours.

Hood it up

Who needs to flaunt those ‘puppy dog eyes’ when you have a super cute animal onesie? Here I am wearing the DGG Zebra Print and Lady Bug Hearts onesie. Talk about super snug and comfy! Perfect for today’s discerning urban fashion hound whether they are lounging around the house, walking around the block or having some ruff and tumble at the doggie park.

Also from the DGG range is this ‘Wrapper’ and ‘Warmie’.

This purple light-but-warm corduroy wrapper keeps your torso toasty warm with an uber lightweight comfortable fit for ease of movement.

This fun and functional plush winter warmie is ideal protection for keeping inactive and senior dogs warm during the chilly weather. It also comes in many colours. I think I might order one of each to keep life colourful!

Pavement patterns

This little number was custom made for little old me. Having it custom made was paw-fect, as I am a bit out of proportion being only 5 ½ months old. Tuff Dog Coats tailor make all their goodies so they fit like a glove!

My pick of their products is this shimmery coat of goodness. I am partial to a nice leopard print pattern and when I heard it came in pink, well, I didn’t need to look any further.

Tuff Dog Coats also make dog cooling coats to keep you comfortable in the summer heat, and even dog life jackets for water safety. (I’m not a fan of swimming—it ruins my hair!)

Rock chic

Are you tough and scary? Or pretty and vibrant? You need to check out these cool rock star harnesses from Dogue. Flowers and skulls, who can go wrong! Be the envy of the dog park. These harnesses are inspired by the colourful detail of sugar skulls, they’re beautiful and scary at the same time.

If you love a visit to the park or even the beach, these harnesses are made from durable canvas and will stand the test of time. I had a good roll in the dirt to test out these babies and mum said they were so easy to clean.

Oh and don’t forget to match it up at dinnertime with these fun bowls! See how happy they make me!

For the wild child

I am completely head over heels for this trendy winter accessory from Lush Pets. In fact, I might just wear this all year round! This tie-dye pattern suits my personality to a tee – fun, vibrant and a little bit naughty. Neckerchiefs are a must-have trend this season and there are plenty of patterns and styles to choose from, thanks to Lush Pets.

Make dinner time a party

You know I love accessories; check out this neon-bright food bowl from Annabel Trends. The main feature of this bowl is that it is purpose built with a slant. Now for my squishy little puggy face (that has no snout), this makes for a comfortable eating experience, as I don’t need to shove my head in the bowl (So not a pretty look!). The slant also eliminates the mess. You can shop this in blue or pink.

Oh, don’t forget to ‘babe’ it up with the latest Annabel Trends neck accessories too. I’m sporting a flirty polka dot pattern.
