14 Winter Trappings for Outdoorsy Dogs
Ski-club balaclavas, waterproof wellies, all-natural nose balm, and more gear to help outdoorsy pet parents get the most out of the season.
Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
Seasons may come and go but one constant will remain — outdoorsy people are going to continue venturing outdoors. Whether it’s hiking, camping, or simply taking a walk, people who love nature find a way to enjoy it year-round. Maybe you’re one of these people, maybe your New Year’s resolution is to be more adventurous, or maybe you try to avoid the sun at all costs until it’s at least 60 degrees. Regardless of how you plan to spend your winter, all three demographics share one hope — we want our dogs with us and we want them to be comfortable.
Of course, traveling with a dog at any time is no easy feat — add in chilly temps and you’ve got a real challenge on your hands. It’s certainly not impossible, but our pets might just need a few extra supplies to get through with more ease. Thick sweaters, durable shoes, a warm bed, and even moisturizers (dogs get dry skin in the winter too!) can all help make the experience as enjoyable and risk-free as possible for dogs. So grab your pup and hop in the Subaru: these are 14 cold-weather accessories for your next adventure together.
Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
The interactive experience features myriad holiday worlds for dogs, and the humans who love them, to explore.
Bichon-shaped candles, tiny holiday hats, cowboy Corgi ornaments, and more gifts guaranteed to squish into oversized decorative socks.
