Coordinating outfits

Could there be anything cuter than coordinating outfits with your dog?! We think not. Our matching dog and owner gifts are cute, playful, and practical.  

The Soft Side Sweatsuit is a warm and cozy outfit that is perfect for relaxing throughout the holiday season. 

Made from a super soft material and eco-friendly dyes, the Soft Side Sweatsuit (for dogs) slips on over the head and has an elastic neck and belly opening that enables it to fit dogs of all shapes and sizes. It comes in sizes 8 through 28 and in three pastel colours: blue, pink, and yellow. The fabric is even water-repellant, so there’s no need to change out of this outfit to go outside! 

The Soft Side Adult Hoodie and Sweatpants were designed to coordinate with the Soft Side Sweatsuit and come in the same three pastel colours.

You and your pup are sure to be the envy of the dog park when you show up sporting these cozy, matching ensembles (or when you’re cuddling on the couch for a movie night)!

Statement outerwear

Many dogs benefit from sweaters and jackets during cold winter weather, which is why chic outerwear makes such a wonderful holiday gift for new dog owners. 

For an outdoorsy pup, the Cool Factor Hoodie is a practical and stylish fleece hoodie. Made from soft, teddy-bear fleece and a stretch knit jersey lining, this hoodie will help keep dogs warm during chilly winter walks. It features a functional hood and a treat pocket and comes in three colours, pink, black grey, and green camo. Available in sizes 8 through 28, this hoodie will fit almost any dog. Better yet, There’s a human version available too (in black and grey), so pet parents can match their dogs!  

The Soho Sweater is a wonderful piece for a pup that prefers a more refined look. Available in navy, magenta, and grey, this chenille sweater is designed for style and comfort. It has a cozy turtleneck collar and slips on over a dog’s head. It’s available in sizes 8 through 28, and the ribbed fabric is stretchy enough to accommodate pups of all shapes and sizes! 

Final Thoughts: Selecting the Right Gift

Buying gifts for the pets and pet parents in your life should be fun, not stressful. If you need assistance with sizing, don’t hesitate to contact one of our fit experts for help. If you’re feeling indecisive, a gift card is a great alternative to purchasing an individual gift for dog owners. That way, your loved one can take the time to measure their pup and ensure they select the ideal products!
