Atlanta Pet Life Magazine- Winter 2016

If the Sweater Fits, Wear It.

It’s almost that time of year again… we are not talking about the holidays, but of New York Pet Fashion Week! Before all the new styles and trends are announced, we are sharing the latest in dog fashion!

We’ve all seen the photographs online of dogs in different fashionable outfits and doing fun things. Of course we want our fabulous dogs to be fabulous at all times, however we also want them to be comfortable, healthy, and warm during the winter.


Some say that dogs do not need winter coats or boots because of their fur and the pads of their paws. However, it is our opinion that all of that is dependent on their breed, size, and age. If your pet does not have a heavy coat of fur, or is hesitant to go outside in the cold, it may be time to invest in some fashionable winter clothing such as like a coat, sweater, hoodie, or booties.

Where your pets grow up will determine if they are equipped to handle colder weather. By nature, some dogs are built to handle the cooler weather better than others. Not only are some dogs made for cold weather, they may actually prefer it. However, if those winter-ready dogs were born and raised in a warm climate, they may not be ready for cold weather if relocated from their homes.
As always, we can’t stress it enough, measure your pet! Get the proper measurements for your dog to make sure you have the perfect fit that does not choke or squeeze your pet. When dressing your dog, you want to ensure that they are comfortable and can continue with daily activities without being held back by their new fabulous attire.
Dog fashion is in style all year round for some pet owners, but make sure you pet is happy, warm, safe, and comfortable all winter long.

Pet Industry All-Stars (and look what came in FIRST place)!!

Pet Business celebrates the best that the pet care category has to offer with the 15th-annual Industry Recognition Awards.

It was another year of growth for the pet industry, which is expected  to surpass the $62-billion mark by the end of 2016, according to the American Pet Products Association. While much of this success can be attributed to the continued trend toward treating pets as valued members of the family, manufacturers have also played a key role by making pet ownership easier and more fun for consumers while giving pet stores the opportunity to stand out in a very competitive retail landscape by keeping assortments fresh and engaging.

With this in mind, each year Pet Business honors the industry’s standout products with our Industry Recognition Awards (IRA). Now in their 15th year, the IRAs are selected by the Pet Business editors after scouring the industry for the most exciting and functional products on the market, as well as worthy candidates in categories such as best packaging redesign and best vendor website.

How to measure

1.) The Broadest part of the chest (shown as Chest on the illustration above) For chest measurement, measure the chest at its widest point, which is typically right behind the front legs. If the dog has a large girth, going up a size in the top line measurement is always a smart choice, since some additional fabric will be used up.

2.) The Length of the backbone (shown as Back Length on the illustration above) Measuring should be done along the dog's backbone from the base of the head to the base of the tail. This is from the base of where the collar rests to where the tail is attached. The measurements you see on all our apparel indicate this top line measurement. However, it's important that the dog's girth be taken into account as well as the top line measurement.

3.) The Circumstances of the neck (shown as Neck on the illustration above) The neck size determine whether the dog will be comfortable wearing clothing. If the neck is too tight, the dog would be hard to breath. There are different sizing ranges for different types of garments, due to how binding or flexible the material used is. The most important is the chest size, so if the chest size is ok the other will not matter.
