Does my dog need a jacket!
Dog jackets are always a controversial subject there are two polar opposite opinions - Fido already has a coat why would he need another and then fluffy he gets so chilly in the cold weather! Well there is no right or wrong to the question does my dog need a jacket it is on a case by case basis.
Natural Coat Type - Some dogs are made to live in a chilly climates, such as Huskies and Newfoundlands and these Long-haired dogs already have a double-coat, adding another layer could make them overheated. Other dogs however are not so lucky, short-haired dogs like Chihuahuas and Greyhounds are more likely to need help staying warm.
Dogs Weight - Thin dogs don’t have as much fat to insulate them from the cold, so the extra layer provided by a winter jacket can be hugely beneficial.
Health - If your dog is sick or recovering from being sick, you’ll want to keep him extra warm so he gets better quickly!
Age - Senior dogs are more susceptible to illness, so it’s important to keep them warm and healthy.
Other reasons for dog jackets are for owners own ease. Soggy dogs smell and make a mess when you get home, fact! Most of our dogs cohabit with us in our homes and therefore practicalities have to be taken into consideration unless you are lucky enough to have a dog room.
