Aside from just looking cute, there are many reasons why a dog may need to wear a coat or jacket. The most obvious reason is for cold weather. While a Husky or Malamute may be fine with any drop in temperature, most dogs have a point at which walking outside in the cold can be extremely uncomfortable. This is especially true for hairless dogs, smaller breeds, and dogs with low body fat like greyhounds and Whippets. Older dogs suffering from arthritis, short-haired dogs, closely clipped dogs, and breeds that are low to the ground like shelties and basset hounds also need extra warmth on the coldest days. Similarly, a dog may need a raincoat to stay warm in very wet environments or simply to remain clean if frequently exposed to mud. Reflective clothing for dogs has the added benefit of safety, making sure that the animal is visible to people, cars, and even other dogs. Whatever reason a dog may need to bundle up in a coat or jacket, PetEdge has a great selection of dog coats & jackets in multiple sizes to choose from below.
Beyond the cute factor, there are a ton of reasons to buy a coat or jacket for a dog. Clearly, winter weather is the top reason, as nobody wants their fur baby freezing their tail off. Some dogs do fine in the ice and snow, so you might not need to bundle up a St. Bernard, but most pup have a temperature limit at which walking outside can be uncomfortable and even unhealthy. Dog coats and jackets are the perfect answer for short hair dogs, smaller breeds, and dogs with low body fat like greyhounds and Whippets. Senior dogs that have arthritis or heart issues, as well as short-haired and short-legged dogs, also need an extra layer of protection in the winter. Aside from just warmth, raincoats can keep a dog clean and dry on wet days without having to forgo a romp outside.
