Dressing the Dog: Preppy Puppy

Who doesn’t love the preppy look? From time to time, I’ve been known to pop my collar up and tie a sweater around my shoulders. It’s a great look for people and it’s also a great look for our pampered pooches! If my Wheaten Terriers aren’t wearing their nautical items, they are decked out in their preppy accessories. 


While we can’t put a penny in their loafers, here’s a list of perfect preppy finds… 


Madras Collar 


Nothing screams preppy like the madras plaid. Your pooch will look great in this collar by Ruff Roxy. It’s a great deal at under $16.

Seersucker Leash and Collar


I just purchased this adorable blue and white seersucker leash and collar set (with alligators) for our Wheaten Terrier, Popeye. The pattern mimics the always classic look of the Izod brand. The set is $28 which is less than most collars alone! 

Preppy Plaid Bandana

I love this plaid bandana by Icecreamtree Studio! Not only does it come in several great plaids but you can also personalize it with your fur baby’s name for an extra $5. 

The Pet Show Bow Ties


You can’t have a preppy pup without adorning them in bowties or bows! The Pet Show brand sells beautiful ones in an array of colors and customizable amounts. Popeye is known for his red plaid bowtie around town. Your best friend will look great too! It’s a good deal for less than $2 a bow. Visit “The Pet Show” page on Amazon for many other great finds! 

Preppy Jackets 


In my previous article “Dressing the Dog: Puppy Plaid,” I talked about these plaid jackets by Kuoser. I love them so much that I had to mention them again. They are well-made, waterproof, and reversible! Our Wheatens get constant compliments when they sport these preppy jackets. 


Sweet Pea (6 years old) and Popeye (2 months old).
