Right now here in Sydney we are smack in the middle of winter and it’s precisely this time of year that I remember just how cold Sydney can get. Sure, we don’t have snow but my pink ugg boots get a good workout. Our dogs certainly don’t relish spending time outside with weather like this and they can give a great shivering performance if they end up on the wrong side of the back door. Fortunately, their frozen behinds also mean they get to accessorise with some warm attire of their own. So you can imagine Cress and Eddie’s delight when a box of dog coats arrived on our doorstep from Doggone Gorgeous!
Doggone Gorgeous is an Australian canine lifestyle brand created by Lynda Chapman and Pia Dwyer. Their dog coat range includes plush warmies, fleece hoodies and stylish corduroy and flannel wrappers that are high on quality and big on comfort, as Cress and Eddie discovered. They are also the only pet apparel and grooming range in Australia to carry RSPCA endorsement.
Warm Corduroy Wrapper
We will start with my favourite coat of the bunch: the ‘Red Corduroy with Unique Badge Design Wrapper’ as modeled by Eddie. This coat’s corduroy material was lovely and soft to touch and has a plush polar fleece lining. The collar stood up nicely over Eddie’s ID collar and the Velcro fastenings were easy to use and seemed comfortable for Eddie across her chest and tummy. We also loved the red colour! Get your own Corduroy Wrapper for $29.99 (AUD).
Fleecy Fashion Wrapper
Cress definitely thinks he has some royal blood and has been known to sport some red tartan every now and then, so the ‘Red & Black Tartan Check Design Wrapper’ was the perfect match for him. This flannel coat has black velvet binding and polar fleece lining and — like the Corduroy wrapper — had practical Velcro fastenings across the chest and tummy. Cress looked very comfortable in this coat and even fell asleep in it while waiting for Eddie’s photoshoot to finish. Although his regal bearing lends itself to the pattern, rest assured, most dogs can pull off a great tartan! This Fleecy Wrapper costs $29.99 (AUD).
Designer Fashion Hoodie
I’m a massive hoodie fan myself when I go for a walk, so seeing Eddie in a hoodie was super cute! This ‘Fire Engine Red Hoodie’ made from 100% polar fleece was super-soft and looked very comfortable to wear. The hood is great to keep their ears and neck warm but may be better for dogs with smaller ears than Eddie as she found it hard to keep the hood up. A Designer Fashion Hoodie for your pooch will set you back just $29.99 (AUD).
Last but not least in our doggie fashion parade is Eddie in a Leopard Print Winter Warmie. To be honest, animal prints are not my personal style but I know leopard print is definitely in fashion this winter and Eddie seemed to like it. The Winter Warmies are best-sellers because they are machine-washable and 100% polar fleece, which makes them an ultra-comfortable fit for active dogs and senior dogs alike. This coat is also a very affordable option as it costs only $19.95 (AUD).
