Scarf and coat for your pampered (little) pooch and for you, too. Mommy or Daddy and me looks from Ruffina NYC shown here in rosy pink. FYI these washable Polartec fleece ensembles have harness access and are custom styled for a girl or a boy dog.
SO HAPPY TOGETHER
Love to hike with your dog? Or even just want to be prepared if you are strolling down city streets with everything you ever think you’d need for Fido? Well our friend Megan O’Brien knows a pet parent has to be prepared so she invented DogiPack. Pretty in pink or perfect in red, a must for the modern dog mom (or dad). Info: dogipack.com.
MY LOVE, MY LIGHT
Let your pet lead the way with this glowing collar. We picked pink for Valentine’s Day but there’s a rainbow of colors available to light up the night with the one you love best. Protects your dog or cat by making them easy for all to see in the dark and with each purchase money goes to help pets in need. Info: halodog.com.
HEARTS AND FLOWERS
Cherry red hearts and pretty white daisies pop on the black background of this Up Country ribbon harness (collar options too). Matching lead for the city chic or country casual look. Step in style makes this harness easy on pet parents. All made by hand and machine washable so maintenance is a breeze long after Valentine’s Day is over. Info: upcountryinc.com.
