Do Dogs Need Winter Coats?

The chill of the winter is making its existence popular in a lot of areas. As we look for our seasonal outerwear at the back of our closets, we wonder – do dogs also need winter coats? Dog tailoring is well-known, so whether your dog roams using only what nature provided or roams in a sweater, here are some myths and facts about winter coats for dogs.

Myth

To protect the dogs from the cold, they need to wear coats.

Fact

Not every pooch requires a sweater or a coat to keep them warm when wandering outside. However, dogs with medical conditions, puppies, senior dogs, shorter-haired breeds do benefit from the extra coating. Look for pet apparel that properly covers the belly and neck, and also enables for tail-to-neck protection.

Myth

Every dog could become comfortable to wearing a sweater.

Fact

Several pooches are not comfortable wearing coats and must never be forced to wear one. Though a lot of pooches benefit from the extra coating in colder weather, try allowing your canine wear the sweater in the house for several minutes. Forget the idea and move on if your dog isn’t responsive – or he or she does the popular “freeze in a certain location” pose.

Myth

Bigger dogs don’t require wearing sweaters or winter coats.

Fact

Several dogs were developed with a denser or thicker coat. This includes the Siberian Husky. However, other larger breeds may benefit from a sweater, so examine every individual canine. For instance, Greyhounds are really sensitive to the colder temperature.
