Make your dog stand out from the crowd by buying some of the hottest dog accessories of 2013, some of them are a little weird but others can be quite functional at the same time. I will demonstrate a variety of both the weird and wonderful ideas in the crazy world of dog fashion to show you what you are missing out on!
Latest Trend In Fashionable Collars
Every year a new range of designer dog collars come out, this year it appears that the theme is a wide leather collar with bright colouring on. Pink or baby blue are currently the most popular colours, the collars then have large diamonte letters attached to them with the dogs name on. It is bright, flashy and garish but isn’t that what designer dog accessories are all about?
Harnesses have always been ugly things on dogs; they look more like medieval torture devices rather than a useful accessory for walking your dog. Well that is a thing of the past now harness t-shirts have been created. You can hide the ugly harness under a personalized t-shirt on your dog. The t-shirt can say whatever you like and all you will see is one bit of lead sticking out of the middle it that you hold.
If you want to personalize your dog’s collar but don’t want to have to change the whole thing then take a look at collar charms. They can be bought in a wide variety of designs to reflect you or your dog’s personality from skull and crossbones to a Swarovski bone or USA flag. You simply attach them to the dog’s collar in the same way that you would with your dog’s name tag.
This is one of those items that just seems a step too far but at the same time I can see that it could actually have a real use for some people whose dogs tend to be a bit smelly! The companies creating it have gone all out to make it in to an authentic perfume by calling them things such as ‘Fleur De Jardin’ and ‘Wild Woodland’ perfume.
Why not give your dog a cool new look by getting it a fashionable cap, a wide variety are available from printed caps and mesh caps to even flat caps if you are going for the retro look. They have special holes cut out for the ears to come through to make it comfortable for the dog to wear for prolonged periods of time.
