Dog coats are a great way of ensuring your dogs are warm. Waterproof full body dog coat ensure your dogs bodies, and legs are kept clean and dry. Some dogs don’t like getting too wet and muddy. Having their legs covered as well as their body is a great way of making sure they enjoy getting out. However, getting them into these things isn’t that easy. Dog coats with Legs look like long johns for humans but on your four legged friend look even funnier.
Does My Dog Really Need a Coat?
There are many dog breeds that do not require a coat, especially one that covers their feet. Huskeys for example are great dogs for all weather. These dogs are used in the snowy weather to pull sleds etc so why would you put a coat on them in the UK?
Smaller dogs, such as Dachshunds, generate their own warmth but in the winter struggle when on walks. Getting a nice coat that wrap round body and legs ensures these small dogs keep their bellies warm. Dachshunds tend to get very cold and wet tummies on their walks. These coats are a great way of protecting them.
Waterproof dog coats are another great alternative for keeping your dog dry. Check out our page here.
Keeping your dog dry also prevents your house from becoming a little bit smelly from damp wet dog. This can get in your carpet and sofa fibres. Over time it can become very smelly and uncomfortable for guests.
