During the coldest of temperatures or the wettest of days, dogs can struggle to adjust just as much as humans. Going out in the cold becomes difficult and dogs can try and stop themselves from going out. Ralph tends to sit down and leave himself on the floor making it difficult to move him. Once we bought a waterproof dog coat, he was over the moon and couldn’t wait for his walks whatever the weather. If you feel the need to wrap up warm then you should do the same for your dog.
Not all dogs have a fear of the cold, Siberian Huskeys for example love the cold weather, especially the snow. Dogs like Ralph, miniature dachshunds, tend to hate the cold weather and become scared and refuse to leave the house. Sometimes even a waterproof dog coat with chest and belly protection will not even help. In most cases though, a waterproof dog coat with chest and belly protection provides comfort in the snow and rain. This helps keep the smaller dogs bellies from rubbing in the snow or rain puddles and keeps the bigger dogs nice and warm and looking amazing.
Waterproof Dog Coats with Chest and Belly Protection
There are some amazing waterproof dog coats with chest and belly protection above however, there are still some things to be mindful of. Check out the details below:
Most dogs love being outside in the cold or warmth, wet or dry. Some dogs will roll around in puddles and mud and chase leaves around the park whilst playing with other dogs. All this in a torrential downpour or a snowstorm can leave your dog feeling poorly. You should always consider the materials used in a waterproof dog coat to ensure your dog gets full protection. When choosing your dog coat always look out for the waterproof materials used such as Polyester Outer-Shell or Ripstop Nylon Fabric. This same material is found in hiking equipment and is a great addition to anything you or your dog are wearing.
Searching for a waterproof dog coat that keeps your dog comfortable can be difficult, especially when dogs can be the most hyperactive animals. Also, being lightweight will help keep your dog nimble and easy to move around when out and about. Having a big oversized bulky coat can cause your dog to have mobility issues or even fall over. Keeping a nice snug fit and the fleece-lined dog is great for those cold and wet walks your dog might not always enjoy.
Safety and Warmth
Choosing the waterproof dog coat with chest and belly protection should always include good insulation and ensure your dog is kept warm. Most coats have a fleece-lined inside that will help keep your dog’s body temperature up on the cold winter nights.
Dog coats with reflective piping or patches like Hi-Vis Jackets are also a great asset on any dog coat. This will allow your dog to be seen by other walkers or traffic so as to protect them at all times of day and night. Quick and easy access to the lead attachment is also necessary and will help you quickly release or attach the lead at any time necessary.
