When you’re hot-pawing around town from one pawbiz event to another, it's nice to let your fur down and enjoy some dog-friendly adventures in the woods. That’s what #BigEarsBoysClub founding members Basil and Winston did on a recent trip to Epping Forest – an endless landscape of dog-friendly fun.
Sun’s out, fun’s out and we’re sizzling for all kinds of doggy what’s hot-ness. From palm prints for pups to a canine-catered art exhibition, read on for the buys and doggy do’s on our radar this August, and in our carefree, relaxed summer vibe, we've even let the pussycats claw their way in too.
It's no secret - we freakin’ love Winston of @WinnyTheCorgi Instagram fame. His smiley cuteness paired with his clever use of prop-age and puns are a source of joy in our day. Working with his human Rachel for Basil’s recent all-star photo-shoots means that we get to hang out with him fairly often too and we can confirm in addition to his good looks, he’s one swell guy.
Like this week’s sizzling temperatures, human and hound style pairing is so damn hot right now. While it’s fairly easy to embrace this trend – colour matching their collar with your bag, twinning a dog bandana pattern with your top and more, we’ve spotted some buys that do the style thinking for you. Taking their lead from a dog’s accessory basics (collar and leads), we share three pet brands and their buys that will have you and your fashion hound walking in style, with serious wrist appeal for you.
In the face of the erratic summer weather to date the last few posts have zoned in on jackets to help your pooch deal with whatever Mother Nature throws at him, in style. However, there is one dog jacket that has raised the bar in canine cool – Pethaus’ Raw Denim Jacket, which is undeniably the ‘IT’ petwear of the season and takes first place for the ultimate Doggy Trophy Jacket.
Basil and I have already come good this week with a cool doggy wind jacket for days when the wind is blowing stronger than a summer breeze but when it comes to maintaining style during downpours and keeping eau de wet dog to a minimum, we're back in the trenches...
And for ultimate chic in canine trench coats, luxury British dog outfitters Baker & Bray has got them buttoned and belted up. Furthermore Barkarama readers can get an exclusive 15% off all their styles. Our coat of choice is the water repellent cotton Kensington Trench in Royal Blue / Liberty Karm, which quietly screams classic pawrdrobe essential. With exquisite detailing mirroring human designer trench styles such as real-horn buttons and a belt fastening, you're likely to end up with serious coat envy. Added details to finish of the piece of petwear perfection include a stunning Liberty lining in a paisley style print and working zipper pockets to hold small items such as poo bags or a spare door key. Keep scrolling to see our American Gent Basil working this ultra stylish classic look.
If you thought dog coats and jackets were for Winter only then glance out of the window and remind yourself that the great British summertime is not always so great. For times of inclement weather like the sudden temperature drops, mega downpours and high winds we’ve seen over the past few weeks, I recommend having a lightweight number in your dog’s petwear arsenal to tackle the erratic weather.
