8 Things To Keep In Mind When Coat Shopping For Your Dog

  • Is the coat machine washable?

Dog coats get dirty, having one that is easily machine washable will make it easier to keep it clean.

  • What type of fastener does it have?

Some dog coats have straps, others velcro or zippers.  What type of fastener will be more convenient for you?  Our preference is straps or zippers as the velcro can need replacing after time.

  • Is the fabric waterproof?

If your dog is going to be out in the snow and slush wearing his winter coat, it needs to be waterproof.  Any coats that are not waterproof can become wet and therefore your dog may become chilled.  Waterproof fabrics keep your dog warm and dry.

  • Does the coat have a hood?  

          On those really cold days your dog may like the extra warmth of having a hood on his coat.  Some dogs may not like having a hood and it could interfere with his vision, so keep those things in mind.

  • Will the coat restrict your dog’s movement? 

Look at the design of the coat and the thickness.  If your dog enjoys running around a really thick and constricting coat may not be the best choice for him.

  • Does the coat have reflective strips on it?

If you will be walking your dog after dark, finding one with reflective strips will allow motorists to see your dog.

  • Does the coat have a leash hole?

This also depends on the style of the coat.  If the coat has a wide collar it should also have a hole to allow the leash to attach to the collar.

  • Does the coat come in my dog’s size?

Dog coat companies have measurements that you can take from your dog to find the coat that would best fit him.  It’s important to have a proper fit so that the coat is comfortable for him to wear.

So, bundle up yourself and your dog and get out and enjoy winter!  If you are looking for ideas of some fun activities to try with your dog, check out our article, The 5 Best Winter Sports For You And Your Dog
