    Is there a better way to pay tribute to the real ‘Top Dog’ than with a personalised pet hoodie?

    These adorable custom pet portrait hoodies from Woof Inc feature a sketch-style illustration of your pet, with their name written underneath.

    To order you simply select your favourite colour hoodie, check out, email a photo of your pet, then wait for the postman!

    Available in a number of unique colours to suit any wardrobe, the hoodies are great quality and feel super soft on the outside. We think they’re just the right thickness – layer over a t-shirt for autumn / winter dog walks, or wear on it’s own as comfy loungewear.

    The print is really good quality too. Other brands we tested tended to fade after a wash or two, but we’re told the screen printed heat transfers on these hoodies will last as long as the garment (so long as the care instructions are followed!)

    Woof INC is an independent British business that makes a lot of its products sustainably, so as well as this being a gift for the dog lover in your life, it will be a gift to the planet as well!
