Frequently Asked Questions:
Do dogs need jackets in the winter?
In Australia, winters can be quite cold and uncomfortable for us. Rugging-up with a few extra layers during the cooler months of the year is expected, but what about our dogs? Our dogs have a fur coat, so do they really need a jacket during winter?
If your dog lives in a region where the winters are quite cool, then yes, a well-fitted dog jacket is recommended. Although your dog is covered in fur, there are many factors that can affect their comfort during the winter months.
There are a several factors that can affect how much body heat your dog will retain during the cooler months. Breed can play a large role, with arctic breeds and double coated breeds having a denser and more insulating coat. Dogs that are particularly lean will have less body fat to keep themselves warm. Small breeds of dog will lose body heat more quickly than larger dogs. Older dogs may develop arthritis or have a chronic health conditions, which can also affect how comfortable they are during winter.
There are plenty of ways to keep your pet comfortable during winter. A dog coat or jacket is a great way to keep them warm. Ensure the jacket fits well, doesn't rub on the neck or armpits and doesn't have any velcro or zippers in contact with the skin.
