Does Your Dog Need A Winter Coat?

It has become a common discussions and debate between dog owners and commentators – does your dog need to wear a coat when going out? The reality is that most dogs will not usually require a coat except in the harshest conditions but the wearing of a coat will certainly not harm your dog and, if they suffer from certain ailments or illnesses, then a winter coat may help to reduce pain and other symptoms, and even prolong their life.
Few dogs are naturally indigenous to this country and so very few actually have the genetics that naturally defend against the cold and often wet weather that we suffer. As such, it is not uncommon to see some breeds of dog, especially those that originally hail from the warmest climates, to shiver when they come in from a walk in the cold. The fact is, you shouldn’t find that donning Hurtta overalls will harm your canine friend in any way.

Hurtta raincoats are designed to protect against the wet weather. If your dog has arthritis or another illness that means that they are especially susceptible to the cold and wet weather then such clothing can prove invaluable and vital. Ensure the jacket fits well and offers the level of protection that is truly required for your dog.

Of course, it isn’t just clothing to protect against the weather that you can buy for your dog. You will find a great and varied range of Hurtta dogwear that can be used in a variety of circumstances. Life jackets, high visibility jackets, and safety scarves can help protect a dog and they can prove useful for working dogs when conditions demand it too. Consider your specific requirements to determine whether your dog requires the use of any items of clothing.

There are a surprising range of dogwear items available and, as well as winter clothing and raincoats that may be met with derision in some parts, you can find safety and working gear too. This can protect your dog and also you and prevent either of you from coming to any harm when out walking.

If we had a sweet puppy and it was cold I would certainly get him a coat, but since we live in FL and don't own a dog of our own, I would have to just imagine how adorable he/she would look wearing one. :)
