The type of coat that a dog will need will usually depend on its breed, size, and age. Small dogs in particular will lose body heat quickly, especially short haired breeds. With dogs like these it is a good idea to provide them with protection from the elements on a day that is cold or wet.
While larger long haired dogs will not require a cost they may like the cozy feel of wearing one. Approach buying a dog rain coat for your dog much like you would making a purchase for yourself. Look for a warm raincoat that is constructed using quality materials. In colder climates looks for a raincoat which has a lining made from either wool or fleece. The coat should also be large enough that it can protect our dog.
Your dog will not find the dog coat comfortable if it is too tight around the neck. Dog raincoats can be found in many different price ranges. While some cost as little as $20 others can cost several hundred dollars. Additional cost does not always mean that the coat is of higher quality so be sure to carefully inspect it. Both designer labels and quality materials can add to the cost of a dog raincoat.
The protection of a dog raincoat is especially important for a small dog. A dog which is wet and chilled will usually be very unhappy. They are also easily chilled. Buy the highest quality dog rain jackets you can if you have a smaller dog and live in an area where it rains frequently.
There will be many options available when shopping for a dog raincoat. Another great purchase is a matching rain hat. They not only look cute on they will help your dog maintain more body heat. When the weather turns cold you want your dog to stay warm and comfortable.
