Dogs Feel Weather Too

In many places, the end of January is a very cold time of year. Some people believe that covering a dog up in a coat is silly.

“They already have fur!”, is a favorite response when they argue.

Well, people have hair on their heads and we wear hats to keep warm and dry.  Yes, a dog is less vulnerable to cold elements than you or I because of their thick fur coats but this doesn’t mean they don’t get cold or wet.

Winter dog coats are made to keep dogs dry and keep their body heat on their bodies.
When you and your dog are out taking a walk in the misty morning on a chilly January day that dampness is going sit on your dogs fur and make him cold and wet.
If it is snowing out, the snow is going to do the same thing.
If it is pouring down rain then do you really want to coax your dog out of the house, have him get soaked to the bone and then have him come back inside where he shakes all that wetness into the middle of the living room?

A winter dog coat isn’t an accessory or a trivial piece of clothing that is unneeded by your canine friend.  Your dog will probably appreciate his winter dog coats and like that the winter elements aren’t affecting his walk.

You want to make sure that your dog is properly fitting in his dog coat. If the coat is tight it is too small and this will make your dog uncomfortable when he tries to walk.  Winter dog coats should fit somewhat loosely, especially under your dogs legs (in their armpits) because material will twist and bunch in that area.  Also, there should not be anything dangling off the coat. No zippers or threads or anything that will trip your pooch or snag on the ground.

Winter dog coats are functional and once you try them out you will see that keeping your dog warm and dry in the winter months will also keep you happy.
