What’s the difference between a dog blanket and a regular blanket, you ask? It’s not the paw or bone prints sewn into the fabric. What makes these special is that your dog knows it’s theirs, but an avid cuddler is always willing to share when the season turns frosty. Not to mention, a good blanket makes just about everything better.
Bad day? Wrap yourself in a blanket with your dog. Raining outside? Grab that blanket (with a dog under it). Burned your Hot Pocket? Blanketdog. Let me help you make your snuggle sesh 10x better.
Sherpa = luxury in any dog’s mind, and it’s no mystery why it seems to be one of the most popular materials for dog beds, blankets, and even plush toys. This blanket is super soft, reversible, and measures 45″ x 30″. It’s just begging your dog to crawl onto it, turn in a few circles, dig to nowhere, and finally hunker down for the long haul (a.k.a. Netflix binge). No assembly required and very easy to use, I might add.
Sue me, but I think this blanket is just plain adorable. Who doesn’t like polka dots? It’s really best for use in a crate, dog bed, or in the car based on the relative sizes (of which there are 3!), but if you order the large there should be plenty of room for both of you. The velvet-esque polyester covers both sides, and you shouldn’t notice any major pilling.
Perhaps you’ve got a couple of humans or a handful of pups that need to fit under one throw as you watch the snow fall outside—boy have I got a blanket for you. It’s called “The Big One” so as not to mislead you. This super cute dog-print blanket is 60″ x 72″ and (according to reviewers) can easily cover two grown humans and probably a few lapdogs. Also cover-able is one Alaskan Malamute, approx. 17 Chihuahuas, or 9 cats if you’re into that sorta thing.
I warned you there would be bone prints, and I’m sure there will be paw prints to follow. But this blanket looks so soft-I-could-touch-it-through-my-computer-screen soft, and I don’t take that lightly. You can choose between bones and stripes, though the small and medium sizes vary depending on which of the 10 colors you choose. It’s made of 100% polyester goodness and cleans up easily in the washing machine.
This blanket from Jax and Bones just SCREAMS luxury. But, you know, in a whisper, because we’re trying to nap. It’s two-sided with super soft velour on one side and an equally soft and lovely material on the other. If you choose to use this on your dog’s dedicated couch spot, in her crate, or in the car, she’s bound to have some trouble keeping her eyes open.
When dogs are in the picture, waterproof ANYTHING gets a thumbs up from us. This washable, hypoallergenic blanket comes in just about every color you could want (including the classic paw prints), and is perfect for protecting delicate surfaces around your home or in your car. They’re made with no-pill fleece and stain-resistant “NanoPore” backing fabric that requires no special care when cleaning. That means your pup can get as dirty as he wants—all you need to do is toss the mess in the wash.
I’m in love with the canine silhouette pattern on this luxurious throw; it’s made with a cotton blend, and is built solely for warmth, comfort, and durability. The jacquard weave pattern offers a uniqueness to the texture and the intricate designs created. My favorite part? It’s non-pilling so it stays just as soft as the day you receive it, and it’s HUGE. Throw it over your couch, your bed, or you and your pup, and you’ll never want to take it off.
Add a little color to your home! Besides the variety of fun patterns and home decor-friendly colors, these thick fleece blankets are completely waterproof (and drool-proof, and pee-proof…). They come in 2 sizes to suit your needs—or your dog’s needs, let’s be real. Just be sure to put your dryer on medium after the wash to keep it looking new!
I love West Paw. Just love ’em. They make killer dog toys that stand up to rough play, and now they’re taking it down a notch with the coziest blanket you ever did see. This cuddle-aphrodisiac is available in 3 sizes and 5 colors, and it’s REVERSIBLE! They’ve sheathed one side in faux suede, and the other in some sort of magically soft material that has no name—just a symbolic jaw-drop.
