Some dogs are fine wearing a cheap sweater or ragged booties that you bought at your local big-box store. They have a name for dogs like this: basic.
If your dog needs to be a bit more stylish before they’ll step outside to wander the neighborhood, you’ll have to find higher-end labels to dress them in. The list below will cover the exciting and sophisticated dog-related fashion brands available today.
1. Canine Styles
This New York-based designer is sure to make your pup the most luxuriously dressed animal on the block, if not in the entire city. Do you want to put your dog in a cashmere hoodie or have them walk around in Sherpa-lined rain boots? This is the designer to check out.
It doesn’t just offer clothing. You’ll also find collars, harnesses, beds, toys, ID tags, and much more.
2. Boo Oh
Whenever you hear that an artist has a beloved pet, you know that said pet will live the type of life that millions of people across the world would envy. That’s certainly the case with Boo Oh, which was inspired by Seattle-based artist Jay Sae Jung Oh and her French Bulldog, Boo.
You’ll find gear for cats here as well, and most of it is quite practical — or it would be, if it weren’t so expensive. If you want a food dish that costs several hundred dollars, you’re in luck — they have several. You can also find leashes, poop bag carriers, and other essentials, all of which likely cost more than your dog did.
3. Ruby Rufus
Ruby Rufus specializes in sweaters for your pooch, and yes, it has cashmere. Most of its stuff is quite stylish and looks like it was inspired by human fashion trends. Fortunately, though, its gear is as functional as it is attractive, as its chunky designs should keep your pup warm in any weather.
You’ll find sweaters in a variety of styles. That means you can buy several different types, ensuring that your dog never has to suffer the mortification of being caught wearing the same thing two days in a row.
4. For the Furry
For the Furry’s stuff is fairly reasonably priced — compared to some of the other shops on this list. It has sweaters, jackets, scarves, and tons of accessories to choose from.
Its grooming gear is particularly impressive, as they offer fur freshener, bug blocker, nose balm, and an assortment of other toiletries that will have your dog looking at least 5 years younger than their actual age.
No one combines functional with stylish quite like Rororiri. All of its stuff is quite practical, but it’s also beautiful. It even has face masks for dogs!
Almost all of its clothing is lined with shearling or other thick material, so your dog should stay warm regardless of what the weather’s doing on your walk. Many of its pieces have hoodies as well.
When you’re dealing with a Swedish clothing company, you know that you’re either getting discounted designer duds or the most expensive clothing that you can imagine. Max-Bone manages to fall into both categories, as it offers reasonably priced jumpers and gold-plated collars.
As you’d expect from a Swedish brand, most of its gear is winter-themed, including a complete snowsuit for your pooch. It even offers food, and as you’d expect, it’s all high-end and healthy.
7. Pets So Good
Pets So Good offers clothing that looks like it’s from the most high-end designers but with prices that are attainable for the average owner. That said, you’ll still find expensive stuff on its website, including dog beds that may cost more than the one you’re sleeping in.
It has items for all aspects of your dog’s life, including food, leashes, and toys. You can find everything that your dog needs on the website, and while it won’t be cheap, you should at least have some of your paycheck left after you complete your order.
If you’re worried that people won’t realize that you’re a hipster, you can remove all doubt by dressing your dog in a denim jacket from Barker. It also has baseball jackets, cuffed slacks, and button-down shirts.
This place actually has quite a bit of stuff that you won’t find at other shops, so if you want something besides the basic sweater or hoodie for your pup, this is a good place to start. The prices aren’t bad either.
Moshiqa is the brand favored by many celebrity pets, including dogs owned by Lady Gaga and Leonardo DiCaprio. As you might expect, then, its focus is on pampering your pup, even at the expense of functionality.
Does your dog need a bathrobe to lounge in after a long day of sniffing themselves? Moshiqa has them covered. It also offers passport covers, ties, and tiaras, so no matter what sort of events your dog is invited to, they should have their wardrobe well in hand — er, paw.
10. Ralph Lauren Pets
Just the name “Ralph Lauren Pets” likely conjures up a certain image in your mind, and that image is probably spot-on. If you want preppy sweaters, collars, and polo shirts, this is a great place to look.
The stuff is about as expensive as you’d expect, but there’s no better way to make your dog look ready for an afternoon on your yacht or a lacrosse game.
Help Your Dog Win Best (Dressed) in Show
If you care about how your dog looks, then dressing them up in designer duds is a great way to help them look better than every other pup on the block. These clothes are expensive, to be sure, but if you want your dog to be the talk of the town, they’re the best way to make that happen.
Your dog will look fantastic in these threads. The only problem is they’ll probably be better-dressed than you.
