They may not be to everyone’s taste, but canine PJs are all the rage. We take a brief look at what’s hot, what’s not and why some pets won’t take kindly to dressing up.

There is nothing cuter than a dog, except perhaps a dog dressed in pyjamas! Of course, not all dogs love a trendy PJ outfit - especially those with ample fur - but there is many a dog that feels the cold almost as much as their owner, and would gladly wear something warm and snuggly.

It is for PJ-loving canines everywhere that we here give a rundown of five of the best canine night attires.

1. Elf pyjamas

Get your dog into the spirit of Christmas with this gorgeous elf print worn handsomely by this coy French Bulldog. Who doesn’t love elves!

2. Santa print pyjamas

Next is Kevin, the Australian Cattle Dog. He sports a pyjama set with Santa Claus print, and he seems proud to be rocking the look!

3. Snowman pyjamas

The third dog to catch our eye is terrier crossbreed Bentley. Self-confessed ‘spoiled’ dog, Bentley is no stranger to dressing up. Here he wears snowman-print PJs.

4. Reindeer pyjamas

Take a look at crossbreed Cockapoo Buddy. He sports PJs in the shape of a reindeer, complete with antlers (although he looks embarrassed to be doing so, and would much rather be curled up in front of the fire).

5. ‘My First Christmas’ PJs 

How about this fetching outfit worn by Argentinian Mastiff Apollo? It may be a banned breed in the UK, but this particular dog certainly wears his pyjamas with style!

If you decide to dress up your own pet, please ensure that he is happy to wear such an ensemble and to make sure that he is safe when doing so. Remember that not all animals appreciate costumes, so please don’t force the issue if he’s not happy. Additionally, if you are using any products on your pet, please make sure they are pet friendly.
