Why should people have all the fun with it comes to fall fashion? Your favorite canine can also embrace the autumn trends with their own cape to combat that fresh, crisp air. We know your dog’s closet is probably already packed with plenty of cuddly sweaters and jackets for chillier months—but there’s something special about a cape! Not only are capes for dogs comfortable and roomy, but they’re easy to secure around the neck. Also, dog capes make it easier for them to answer the call of nature.
Of course, we should discuss the different kinds of capes for dogs that your pet may be modeling this season. Here are our favorite options.
Superhero Capes for Dogs
Have a confident dog? How about a sweet little moppet who’s the hero of your heart? (Awww.) There’s no better way to celebrate than giving your dog a superhero cape and watching them reach for the stars!
Wonder Woman had to make any list of capes for dogs. This officially-licensed number is ideal for your own doggy warrior. They do tend to run a little small, so be sure to consult the size chart and possibly even order a size up.
This incredible cape gives the illusion that your dog is leaping from a burning building (after saving lots of lives, of course) with the help of some wire. Best for dogs that weigh up to 50 lbs., such as beagles, Boston terriers, cocker spaniels, pugs, and French bulldogs. Help your little friend take flight!
This dog cape comes with the full Batman dog costume—a headpiece with bat ears, a chest piece with the Batman logo, and even a yellow belt. Also an officially licensed DC Comics pet costume, this ensemble is high-quality and cute. Just make sure to check the size chart before you order, as it won’t fit all breeds and sizes.
Capes for dogs look a bit like flags, don’t they? Not technically a superhero costume, but definitely appealing, this rainbow cape would pop during Pride season—but also anytime.
Very Cool Vests for Dogs
Is safety on your mind? Check out these autumn staples that’ll make life a little easier (and warmer) for you both. Dog vests are easy to secure and stay on even better than a standard cape thanks to an around-the-belly strap.
Now that darkness is coming earlier in the evenings, safety is essential when walking your dog. Luckily this vest will be bright and visible, plus it fits extra large dogs (up to 100 lbs.) and is made with rip-resistant fabric that makes it durable and protective.
Ok, so this one is a little less stylish—but so useful! With plenty of pockets and loops, this comfy canvas vest can hold your autumn essentials (pumpkin spice treats, anyone?). Plus, the straps are adjustable so you can maneuver it to make sure it fits your pet like a glove.
Dog Capes for Warmth
You (and your dog) won’t be disappointed with these cozy picks made for cuddling on even the dreariest, downpour-iest day.
This five-star rated dog poncho is handmade from a woolen Mexican serape blanket, making it both warm and water-resistant (though not completely waterproof, of course.) Would be extra-cute on a Chihuahua, but comes in many sizes.
Missing the intricate sweaters that Grandma used to crochet in your youth? Bring back memories with this washable acrylic pet shawl that pops with bright color. Though easily adjustable (the turtleneck collar rolls down, and the Velcro straps can be moved), use the size chart to make sure you’re ordering correctly.
This fleece-lined number even comes with a toggle closure decoration and a hood! But this cape isn’t just about fashion—it’s designed to keep your pet warm and cozy, too.
The cozy, fleece lining will keep your dog warm, while the outer fabric resists water and wind (making it perfect for autumn months). There’s a reason this affordable coat is one of the most popular of its type on Amazon.
The under-belly fastening puts this number into “dog coat” territory, but hey, you can call it a cape. Your dog won’t care!
