Christmas for canines

Posted on: 26 March 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Canine clothing gifts to please your dog from tongue to tail.

K9 by igloo designs produce 'T-shirts for dogs' in 25 designs, four sizes and four colour-ways, all packaged in silver dog food tins. This year five new designs have been launched including 'Princess', 'Prince', and 'No1'. K9 t-shirts not only look great, they can help to ease scratching caused by itchy skin conditions and protect body wounds after operations, help show coats stay clean, keep thin coated dogs warm, and are good for elderly or poorly dogs to wear indoors. They are 100 per cent cotton and machine washable at 30 degrees. Whether it's a small red 'Mischief Maker' T-shirt for a Jack Russell or an extra large black 'Top Dog!' T-shirt for a Collie, there's bound to be the right fit for your dog.

Slip-on bandanas by Creature Clothes add a new funky element to your dog's collar. Simply undo the collar, slide on the bandana and you're ready to go. The bandana can also be used as a buckle cover if your dog has long fur that gets caught up in its collar. They feature a star motif, or for the festive season there are Christmas tree ones. A doggy scarf in check fabric with faux-suede tassles is also available in three sizes.

Dogs Trust has some stylish outdoors wear to keep your dog snug and sassy at the same time. The ‘Waggle Dog coat’ - the ultimate in shower-proof design for dogs - is a high quality antique leather-look coat that has a soft fleece lining and adjustable Velcro fastening strap, in different sizes.

Dog Tags

Smartly boxed chrome identity discs, with two enamel designs to choose from - K9 black paw or red heart logo - are available individually or with vet tag attached. They are 2.9 cm diameter, simply engrave your details on the back.

You could get your very own personalised dog collar in solid brass from Dogs Trust, or there is always the Dog Poop Scoop Lead that allows you to scoop that poop on the go.

Creature Clothes' leather dog collars are hand made from Spanish saddle leather and studded with funky star, bone, heart or dog studs in a nickle or brass finish. A matching unique lead with a loop between the handle and the lead for extra flexibility is available too, double riveted at all joints. Leather leads and collars are available in tan, red, green or black.

Creature Clothes' fabric dog collars and leads have a webbing core around which the fabric is sewn. They are riveted together for extra strength, featuring a metal buckle and eyelets on the collar and a swivelling trigger hook on the lead. They are hard wearing and available in stylish stripes, gingham, daisies, denim or camoflage.

Canine Comforts

New K9 'Snug Rugs' fleece blankets, featuring a paw or bone motif, are perfect for your pet-bed, furniture or car. These embroidered fleeces with blanket stitch edging are supersoft and available in two colours, pink or blue, and two sizes, 70cm x 140cm or 100cm x 140cm.

Dog Dozas by Creature Clothes are the ultimate in creature comfort, while bringing a designer look to your dog's bed. The insides are exactly the same as the duvet you have on your bed, except two layers of it and it will not go lumpy when washed. Dog Dozas all have loose covers with a zip and both insides and out are fully machine washable at 40 degrees.

If your dog gets wet this winter, you could treat him or her to their very own Dog Dry Bag. This ingenious bag is made from best quality absorbent terry towelling with a zip that prevents dog hairs being caught. They even come in handy small/terrier, medium/spaniel and large/Labrador sizes. Or maybe a nice Snuggle heat pad for the less active dogs.

Doggy Bag

'Overnight' bags for the short break away are a stylish and practical way to carry all your doggy essentials. Available in five colours these K9 branded wipe-clean drawstring nylon backpacks make ideal gifts for any dog lover.

Dogs Trust has a special travel kit that includes full sized bowls, water canteen and a built-in freezer pack. Handy if you are going to be visiting friends and family around the country this Christmas!
