Dog Coats for Lovable Small and Short-Haired Pups2 min read
Do Dogs Need Coats?
Great question! When the weather gets cold and snowy, does your dog need a winter coat? The less fur your dog has, the more likely your dog needs a coat this winter.
Some examples include:
- Small and toy dogs
- Terriers and Pinschers
- Short haired breeds
- Older, senior dogs
- Short cut haired breeds (e.g. poodles)
- Thin breeds (e.g. Greyhounds)
- Dogs hesitant to go outside
Dogs bred for colder temperatures are less likely to need a jacket. These breeds include Saint Bernards, Malamutes, and Siberian Huskies.
What to Look for in Dog Coats
For dogs that do need a dog sweater or coat, try to find a coat with a blend of wool and cotton or acrylic. A purely wool dog coat may be too warm for your dog. Also, measure your dog around the neck and the arms to make sure you get the correct dog coat size.
