Well it looks like we are going to have a white Christmas in our part of the world, and so it is time to dig out the hats and gloves for those fresh (freezing!) morning and evening walks with the dogs.

While our dogs have an extra layer of fur, many shorthaired breeds do feel the cold and so I always like to wrap my dogs up in specially made doggy clothing, to keep them warm and dry on our winter walks.

In the past, dog coats and jumpers were considered a fashion statement rather than a practical piece of clothing, but today there is a whole range of smart and comfortable coats and jumpers that look good, and keep our pets cosy whatever the weather. The cable knit sweaters in the Muddy Paws collection are perfect for keeping our dogs warm both indoors and out.  Tailored to fit snugly against the body, they feature leg straps to keep them in place, and are available in four different sizes.

Colourful, comfortable and cute, these great jumpers are perfect for all shorthaired dogs, so why not treat your dog to one this winter. For winter walks, you might need something waterproof such as the Diamond Quilt Dog Coats in the Muddy Paws collection.  Warm and comfortable, these stylish dog coats feature elasticated leg straps and close with Velcro tabs.

Available in five different sizes and a variety of different colours, there is something for every dog in this collection, and they can be machine washed when required.

So get your dogs ready for winter, and treat them to a new jumper or coat to keep them warm and cosy on chilly mornings.
