Our love for our pets is constantly rising, it comes as no surprise to us that there’s an increase in extravagant pet trends, ensuring our little companions are spoilt to the ends of the earth.

After discovering dog yoga and pet retreats were big news last year, we’ve delved into the depths of the internet to research the top dog trends of 2018. Read on and get ahead of the game! 


Now, although this one has been around for a little while now, we’re still in love with the whole concept and it’s still going strong.

We absolutely love talking to pet profiles on all of our social media channels and keeping up with their adventures! It’s not just dogs that have helped this trend become what it is; from hedgehogs to racoons, goats to guinea pigs, there’s no limit to which pets can grace our feeds with their cuteness. 


We know what you’re thinking “matching outfits - SERIOUSLY?!” We thought that too until we started seeing more and more super chic and stylish outfits for you and your pet to co-ordinate.

Gone are the days where you could only get horrendous jumpers! We can’t wait to see where the doggy fashion industry goes from here.

We all know that our pets need a bit of TLC now and again. What better way to treat your pooch than with a good pamper?

Doggy spas are on the rise and we can understand why! Some of them are so luxurious that they may be even better than those for humans. For example, if your pup needs a lift to D Pet Hotels in NYC, they can get chauffeured straight to the front door in a Lamborghini! ?


The stress of organising travel and holidays is in the past with the rise in popularity of doggy travel apps.

With everything from suggestions on accommodation to travel tips, these take the worry out of organising a trip with your canine companion. We can’t wait to get our dog-friendly holiday booked with our pooch! 


This might be the ultimate way to spend your free time! We all know cute pictures of our fluffy friends dominate social media. Now there are apps out there where you can sit and watch streams of our favourite famous faces from the animal world.
