Living life in the winter in sunny Southern California’s mild climate means your pet doesn’t necessarily need to get all bundled up in order to stay warm. Still, it’s always fun to dress your furry friend in a sweet little outfit or a pair of pretty paw booties or even a little jacket to wear after darkness falls. Sometimes just a new and ultra perky collar or flashy leash will do. That said, whatever suits your fancy as far as the wardrobes of your sweet cats or canines are concerned, consider the following five best spots in which to find the ultimate in cool gear for your pampered pets to don during holiday time.

Catts & Doggs Pet Boutique
2833 Hyperion Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90027
(323) 953-8383
www.cattsanddoggs.com

You’ll never know what slick pet fashion statements you’ll unearth at this small boutique located in a mini mall at the crossroads of Los Feliz and Silver Lake. That’s because the bulk of the offerings on hand come in small quantities so that either your dog or your cat do not see the same outfit on another person’s pet anywhere else in town. Not only that, but many of the costumes du jour are made by local designers, putting that extra special Angeleno touch on each and every pet outfit on offer at Catts & Doggs Pet Boutique.

This tiny Atwater outlet located in the center of the village is a mainstay for area pet owners.

Maxwell Dog

Head over the hill to Studio City for a wide range of cool collectibles for hounds in an emporium operating in the heat of Los Angeles for more than a decade.

Already equipped with enough accessories to fancy up your canine? Don’t miss out on Maxwell Dog’s holistic foods and treatments, some of the best dog bites in all of the City of Angeles.

D.O.G. Pet Boutique
346 N. La Cienega Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90048
(310) 652-6321
www.dogpetboutique.com

Are you a hipster pet owner with a hipster dog to show off? This is the place for you. D.O.G. (pronounced dee-oh-gee) rocks an amazing selection of outfits literally fit for your pooch. If a girl dog is part of your tribe, consider buying her the best in canine dresses, like the black lace-trimmed purple sheath called the Boudoir Dress, or the Camilla Dress, a frock that looks like it was made for a special event such as high tea or a day at the horse races. The holiday patchwork tank sweater, done in green and red wool, is a must for the male pup in your kingdom, as is the Kale vest, a houndstooth number that comes complete with a big black bow tie. Can you say bow wow?

Los Angeles, CA 90026

Although this popular place in Echo Park does not stock winter clothing for your pets, it is the one-stop shop for everything your furry loved one needs, from grooming to dental care to a rattlesnake-avoidance class. In addition, K9 Loft provides a sampling of baubles that are perfect for the holidays in sunny Southern California. Among the most distinctive are a number of prime pieces out of a dog collar collection created by Dosha. Each piece of this rarified bling meant for your hound to wear with pride is decorated with inlaid gems sure to earn your best friend some extra attention from the human community at large and probably even some canines of distinction, too.
