Seasons may come and go, but one constant will remain – outdoorsy people are going to continue venturing outdoors. Whether it’s hiking, camping or simply taking a walk, people who love nature find a way to enjoy it all year. Maybe you’re one of these people or maybe your New Year’s resolution is to be more adventurous. Regardless of how you plan to spend your winter: we want our dogs with us, and we want them to be comfortable.

Of course, travelling with a dog at any time is no easy feat – add in chilly temps and you’ve got a real challenge on your hands. It’s certainly not impossible, but our pets might just need a few extra supplies to get through it with more ease. Thick sweaters, durable shoes, a warm bed and even moisturisers (dogs get dry skin in the winter, too) can all help make the experience as enjoyable and risk-free as possible for dogs. So grab your pup and hop in the car: here are 12 cold-weather accessories for your next adventure together. 

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
