Both hats are stylish, comfortable, and sure to get admiring looks along your trick or treat route.

As much fun as it is to take your pet along, it’s also important to keep your dog and all the other trick or treaters safe. These tips will help you do exactly that:
If you’ll be out for a long time, bring along a few doggie treats and water. Dogs – especially puppies – have short attention spans, so be prepared to take him home if he gets bored, overtired, or overanxious.
Don’t let your dog eat chocolate or sugar-laden treats. Instead, bring a few of their normal treats along and remind your kids not to let the dog eat their candy.
The rush of children in festival costumes might be too much stimulation for your pet. Keep your dog on a short leash because he may be wary of, or frightened by, unfamiliar children and well-meaning adults who might want to pet him.
Not all kids have a pet in their home and your dog may unintentionally scare them. A short leash will solve the problem and you may want to hang back from house doors until they’re almost clear.
Our costumes will help your dog look great, and these tips will keep your dog safe and make sure the whole family has a great Halloween.
Many pet owners love to dress their precious pooches in stylish apparel. Do dogs – especially bigger dogs – really need clothes, though? Depending on the climate you live in, the answer is probably, yes. If you’ve ever seen your pet shake and shiver from the cold or situate himself in front of your fireplace or stove to get warm, you know they need protection from the weather as much as we do.
If you have a big dog with a heavy coat like an Akita, a Burmese Mountain Dog, or a Chow Chow, she might provide enough body heat to keep herself warm on short walks and during outdoor play. A big-bodied, short haired breed like a Labrador, Boxer, Bulldog, Pitbull, or Rottweiler might need a little extra padding to withstand cold temperatures and romps in the snow.
In those cases, you’ll find a sweater or coat beneficial for you and your dog. If you’re concerned about your dog being cold in the winter, we have a line of dog coats that are stylish and warm at the same time because dogs who eschew cold weather might be hesitant to venture outdoors even to relieve themselves. Check out our line of coats, sweaters, and wet weather gear available in sizes all the way up to 4XL. That means even the biggest breed of dog can find warmth and protection in our stylish clothes.
Choose a cold weather coat like our DOGO Runner Coat. It’s available in a variety of colors, patterns, and sizes. It’s fashionable and stylish, and also has an easy, step-in design so your dog won’t fight when you’re putting it on. It also zips easily across the top and completely covers your pet’s belly to protect it from snow. It’s double fleece, marl sweater trim provides unbeatable warmth and protection.
Make sure you also check out our raincoats and sweaters. Your dog will love wearing our gear, you’ll appreciate how easy they are to put on and take off, and you’ll both appreciate the peace of mind you get from knowing he’s warm and protected.
How often have you looked for your dog only to find her sleeping soundly under your bed? Have you ever wondered why your dog does that? Most dogs the tight, dark atmosphere under your bed snug and comforting. If your dog is a rescue animal, she may be fearful at first and appreciate that comfort. You can replicate the feeling of safety and security for your pet with our Burger Beds.
Aside from fear, your dog might also sleep or hide under your bed when she’s experiencing a sense of anxiety. When there are overly friendly children or raucous adults around (especially strangers), that can cause your pet to feel anxious or stressful. Sometimes your dog may just long for the comfort of being tucked securely under your bed. The small, soft underbelly of your bed can provide that comfort. You can also get the same feeling form our Burger Beds. They’re soft and cozy interior gives your dog a sense of security no other bed can match. The temperature under your bed might be cooler in summer and warmer in winter – or just suit their particular preference.
Your dog might also hang out under there if there’s a lot of commotion going on around them. If you’re moving a family member in or out, tackling a construction project, or the kid’s are practicing a louder than usual musical instrument – all of those disruptions may not phase you, but may stress your dog out. When that happens, she’ll look for a safer place to chill.
Our Burger Beds are popular among dogs and their owners for many reasons. They’re available in a large variety of great looking colors and patterns that fit your décor, your personality, or your pet’s personality. They’re also warm and plush, and give your dog the snug sleeping atmosphere she’s looking for.
Why Quality Should Win Out Over Cost When Shopping For Your Pet
Shopping for man’s best friend is a pleasure for many pet parents. We love to indulge our fur babies. The key to shopping for your pet is to first, supply all their needs, then indulge them with gifts and treats. The best way to shop for your pet is to choose quality over quantity. For example, if you live in a cold climate your pet needs the same warmth and protection from the elements that you do.
You can purchase an inexpensive coat for your pet – but here’s what that means. You’ll get a dog coat that looks good…but not for long. A cheap jacket usually consists of a single layer of fleece. That means your pet sadly isn’t getting the warmth they need and you intended for them to have. Single fleece layers also rip and tear easily, and these poorly designed, poorly constructed coats don’t readily accommodate a leash. When they do have a place to attach the leash, it often breaks after even gentle pulls.
When you purchase one of Dogo’s Runner Coats you get the quality protective gear your dog deserves. Our dog coats are known and respected for their sensible design and unbeatable quality. It’s made with a fleece lining, a protective outer lining that’s water resistant, and additional fillings in between for added warmth. Not only is it warmer, it has a strong, high quality zipper, and a sturdy attachable double D rings with reinforced stitching for fastening a leash that just won’t let go when your dog pulls and plays.
Most pet purchases, especially outerwear purchases, boil down to two things – looks and price. Quality is too often the missing third ingredient. It’s the most important component of any purchase, though. Why? Because buying a quality pet coat in the first place means you only have to buy it once.
Halloween will be here before you know it. If you’re planning to dress your fur baby for the occasion – and you should be – we have just the Halloween gear for your pet. One of the best features of our pet-friendly Halloween apparel is that it’s not designed to be disposable. Instead, we manufacture our Halloween gear to eliminate onetime wear. That means you can dress your pet in the same costume year after year or hand it down from pet to pet if you have more than one furry family member.
Most of our hoodies and other high quality, well-designed, cute-as-can-be Halloween hoodies are not so extreme in design that they can’t be worn all season long. After all, Halloween isn’t the only time your pet should be super adorable. Some of the most popular fall designs include these adorable sweaters, raincoats, and hoodies:
Don’t forget the stylish hats that cover and protect your dog’s head in style. Hats are quickly becoming more and more popular pet apparel options for a variety of reasons. They’re a low-cost option when compared to full costumes, they’re easy to dress your pet in, and they offer simple, pleasing designs. Your pet will be the most popular, anticipated pooch on the block when they become known for their designer hats. Hats are any easy way to mix and match your puppy’s outfits. A few of our most popular and adorable pet hats, include:

Most dog owners go to great lengths to ensure optimal health and hygiene for the pets they cherish. Unfortunately, too many overlook good dental health. Your dog’s teeth, tongue, and gums need as much care as all the rest of her. A healthy mouth leads to better nutrition and better overall health and wellbeing.
A toothache or sore gums can cause your pet unnecessary pain and stress. If left untreated, sore, diseased teeth and gums can affect your dog’s bloodstream, kidneys and liver. Poor dental hygiene can also cause tooth loss that can make it difficult for your pet to eat, which leads to poor health in general. Try regular, but not daily, tooth brushing. Brushing your dog’s teeth will loosen plaque and improve the smell of your dog’s breath. It can be challenging and you need to be careful not to brush to vigorously or make your dog so uncomfortable that he never wants a tooth brushing. It may take some getting used to for both of you, but is worth the time and effort.
Want an easier solution? Try our fun Crochet Toy Collection. What looks like toys to you and your pet are actually cleverly hidden dental tools. They come in bright colors and fun shapes like ice cream cones, fish, balls, and spaceships. Made of sturdy, interlaced, 100% cotton thread, they’re flexible, durable, and contain a squeaky feature that equate to hours of fun for your dog. While your pet is having fun, the crochet toy is hard at work removing deposits of calculus that destroy dental health.
Take a step in the right direction and order one for your pet today. She’ll love the fun and entertainment. You’ll love the relief of knowing your dog is getting the care she needs at her own pace. It’s a safe, simple, superior way to provide the quality dental care your pet deserves.
