The Coziest Dog Blankets For Ultimate Cuddling This Winter

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.


Best For Most Pups & Parents

Why we love it:

  • Magically soft and plush
  • Comes in ELEVEN different colors
  • Quality cuddling guaranteed or your money back I’m sorry

Amazon: KritterWorld Microplush Sherpa Snuggle Blanket

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.


Best For Dog Parents On A Budget

Why we love it:

  • It’s gosh darn cute
  • Comes in small, medium, & large sizes
  • Super affordable

Amazon: Pawz Road Fleece Dog Blanket

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.


Best For Families With More Than One Dog To Cuddle

Why we love it:

  • It’s massive
  • The barking dog design is unique and adorable
  • It’s plush and oh-so-soft

Amazon: The Big One Super Soft Plush Throw

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.


Other Blankets We Love

Why we love it:

  • Different designs & colors available
  • SUPER soft
  • Totally machine washable

Amazon: Bone Dry Microfiber Blanket (In Bone Or Stripe Pattern)

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.


Why we love it:

  • Double-sided
  • Crazy soft
  • Perfect for protecting surfaces or settling in for a nap

BarkShop: Jax and Bones Stonewash Blanket

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.


Why we love it:

  • Waterproof
  • NanoPore backing fabric is tough and long-lasting
  • Completely washable

Amazon: Teton Dog Waterproof Fleece Pet Throw

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.


Why we love it:

  • Jacquard weave for softness & durability
  • Reversible
  • Oversized

Amazon: ChappyWrap Oversize Cotton Throw Blanket

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!


Why we love it:

  • Multiple size & color options
  • Reversible
  • Great for covering couches or just snuggling

Amazon: West Paw Big Sky Faux Suede Blanket

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.
