Christmas Jumper Day is just under a month away – it’s time to get your outfit in order.
While you’re browsing for the most jolly (or ridiculous) look to sport this year, don’t forget to pick something up for your pooch.
After all, your furry friend deserves to feel festive, too.Ahead of the big event, Sainsbury’s has just launched its Tu range of Christmas jumpers for dogs , and the designs are adorable. Choose from a multi-coloured Fair Isle pattern in light blue, featuring cakes, Santa Claus, Christmas trees and baubles or an understated checkered coat in red and black.
There’s also a ‘family blue’ coat with the words ‘Santa’s little helper’ scrawled on top.
Because your pet deserves a treat (Picture: Cheshire & Wain/Rachel Oates)Not sure what to get your furry friend this year?The Merchant’s Tail in Hackney was launched by pet labels Cheshire & Wain and Fetch & Follow, and will feature both festive experiences and shopping opportunities for animal lovers.
For a more traditional style, dress your pooch up as a miniature, hairy elf or Father Christmas (beard not included).The collection features four jumpers in total, along with two coats and two Harris Tweed leads.
It’s pretty affordable too, so you could get more than one design – £14 for jumpers and £12 for the coats, with the range available in-store and online.
Sizes range from small to extra large, so all breeds can get in on the fun.If you’d like something a bit more luxurious, swing by Hackney and visit The Merchant’s Tail – a pop-up dedicated to cats and dogs .
Hosted by pet labels Cheshire & Wain and Fetch & Follow, the shop opened last week and will run until 8 December.
Spay and neuter your pet. Studies have shown that pets that are spayed and neutered live healthier, longer lives. Plus, spayed a neutered pets are less likely to develop behavior problems.
In addition to shopping opportunities, visitors can take part in pet-themed workshops and other experiences such as getting a pic taken of their beloved animal in the photo studio with a professional photographer.
Treats will be handed out to felines and pooches as well.
And if you’re looking for a jumper for yourself, may we recommend one with a design that is meant to be a dog – but looks like someone patting a penis ?
