The Best Winter Dog Coats


The Best Winter Dog Coats

We are deep into the Autumn/Winter season and the weather is still getting colder. Misty mornings and frost on the ground look beautiful and are just two of the things that we love at this time of year - festive films and hot chocolate being a couple of others! We love a frosty morning walk to blow the cobwebs away, but it’s important to keep wrapped up warm and protect ourselves from the elements, both for you and your dog. If you have a small breed dog or one with a short coat, then it’s imperative that you buy them a dog coat for Winter. Similarly, ageing dogs and dogs with health problems or those recovering from ailments Amy not be able to regulate their own body temperature very well and will benefit from a dog coat. Even if your dog is a bigger, younger dog with a longer coat, there may be occasions when a dog coat is needed to ensure they don’t get too cold on their walks.

In this article we take a look at some of our favourite winter dog coats.
