Pamper Your Dogs and Cats in Style!

Due to our unique range of items specially designed for smaller breeds and our commitment to providing some of the best products around, we were recently asked to contribute to Bupa Pet Insurance’s article on the most fashion-forward trends for pets, 'Pet Fashion: How to Pamper Dogs and Cats in Style'. Get great tips to step out in style with your pet.

There are many reasons people choose a smaller dog for a pet. Perhaps you would like a dog crossed with a miniature poodle so his fur will not shed and aggravate any allergies in the family. Maybe you want a pet you can pick up and cuddle or who will lay beside you on the sofa at the end of a long day. Perhaps a smaller pet is better for you in terms of space in your car or house, or you have been recommended a certain breed by friends or family. 

Whatever the reason, small is beautiful! But it can be difficult to find clothing, bedding, and accessories for your miniature dog or cat, and you want to be sure that you are buying them the very best for their special size.

The Purr-fect Night’s Sleep

If you are looking to spoil your sleepy pet this winter, you can’t go past the fabulous Snuggle Pod  cat and dog bed from Miyow & Barkley, stocked by Minipet. This bed would have to be the most snuggly snoozer we have ever come across!

Dogs and cats adore the Snuggle Pod. The taffeta lining is super soft and has a unique design which allows your pet to sneak right inside and hide, or lay on top. You would be forgiven for mistaking it for a hamburger! The Snuggle Pod is particularly suited to older animals, as you can place a wheat pack or hot water bottle inside to soothe weary bones and joints.

Sizing Chart

Measure for a Collar

To measure for a collar or bandana, you need to measure your dog or cats neck. (Just like measuring for a shirt.) Place a tape measure around their neck allowing two fingers to slip under the tape for comfort.

How to get the correct harness size

You need to measure the chest behind the front legs to get the sizing. Place a tape measure behind the front legs around the chest.  Use that measurement to select the size from the shopping cart. For example:  If your dogs chest is 49cm then he needs the medium in the soft harness.



How do I measure for dog clothing?

To measure for dog clothing, measure the length of your dog's back, neck and chest (if applicable) and take note of the measurement. If your dog is in between sizes, we recommend choosing the smaller size, otherwise, it may be too baggy.  As each of our design collections has different measurements, be sure to read the specific sizing specifications of each product carefully.
