Beat the cold: 12 ways to keep your pets warm this winter

With our jumpers, winter jackets and thermal underwear, we know how to keep ourselves snug in the winter months. But what about our four-legged friends? Sometimes their fur isn’t enough to ward away the cold. Find out how to keep them cosy this season.

No one likes being cold. Your furry friends probably prefer being inside at this time of year and may well be heading towards the radiator right now. As the temperature dropped, the Galaxus team and I put our heads together to see how we could help pets enjoy winter. I’ve picked out 12 products from our pet range that are all about staying snug.

Keeping each other warm: this dog and cat are only best friends in emergencies

Aquatic-themed den

I can’t vouch for how relaxing it is to sleep inside a shark, but this cat and dog bed is certainly comfy and cosy. The added extra is you get to scare away any intruders at the same time.

Fleecy dressing gown

Dogs enjoy a good bath, too. And just like us, they want to be able to slip into a dressing gown afterwards. This fluffy bathrobe is for four-legged friends who appreciate a bit of indulgence and take pride in their appearance. There’s nothing worse than stepping out of a warm bath or shower and getting cold.

The wild card

This recommendation might be a bit morbid, I’ll give you that. But it’s much better than being stuck in a dark, damp basement. On top of that, this mouse trap is humane. For one thing, you get to release the mouse somewhere it can live out its days quite happily. It also gets a chunk of cheese or some other kind of goodie. That’s just to entice it in, but hey, a snack is a snack.

Wearable sleeping bag

This dog onesie looks incredibly warm. So much so, I’d probably break into a sweat if I were a canine. But I can imagine a long-haired dog loving this in winter after they’d just been groomed. This coat is also waterproof, meaning it protects your four-legged friend from the wet and the rain.

Infrared heating

Let’s not forget reptiles. They’re used to a completely different temperature, so a Swiss winter can be lethal for them. To help them forget about the winter outside, put several of these great lamps in their terrarium. They’ll then be convinced Switzerland is positively tropical.

Piece of nature

We normally sell hay as rodent food and snacks, which you’d expect as it’s very healthy. However, it does have another use. If you’re a fan of all things earthy and rustic, hay makes a great source of heat. Whether you set fire to it or make it into a big heap with a cosy hollow, it’s bound to keep you warm.

When I'm not stuffing my face with sweets, you'll catch me running around in the gym hall. I’m a passionate floorball player and coach. On rainy days, I tinker with my homebuilt PCs, robots or other gadgets. Music was my first love, cooking is my second: I’m a real foodie and love trying out new recipes. I also enjoy travelling to exotic places, tackling hilly terrain on my road bike and criss-crossing the country on my cross-country skis.
