Snuggle up, pups! As the days grow colder this season, us humans aren’t the only ones who can appreciate a cozy, warm blanket to roll up in—there’s plenty of cuddly dog blankets out there for our four-legged friends, too.
In the colder months, dog blankets are useful for every kind of canine, from puppies to old-timers, in nearly every situation, handy for car rides, kenneling, bedding, and good old fashioned snuggling.
There’s a world of options to explore: Perhaps your short-haired beagle could use something extra warm, or your Bernese mountain dog needs something extra long for full-body coverage.
Whether you’re looking for something functional and practical or simply stylish, your dog will love a blanket of their own to keep ‘em comfy overnight or out on adventures. After all, a cozy dog is a happy dog.
Check out some terrific options we’ve rounded up for you in the list below.
