Winter Dog Clothes for Short Haired Dogs

If you love your dog, keeping it healthy and happy should be the most important priority, keeping it warm when it has short fur should be extra important. It is important to take precautionary measures when winter approaches and the climate gets even colder. If you have a playful little dog who likes playing around outside, he should still be able to romp around in the winter if he has the right protective dog clothes.

If you are going to dress your dog for chilly weather, there are a few things you should be aware of, one of these things is that some fabrics cause static electricity and will cause your dog’s fur to mat. To prevent this you should try spraying non-oil hair moisturizer in the inner lining of the garment. Do this when you are bringing the dog in from the cold outside into the house where it’s warm. The sudden change of temperature from cold to warm causes the fur to get coarse.

When it comes to buying winter dog clothes, it is better to buy a bigger size so that you are sure your dog is covered. You can find rain proofed coats lined with fleece to keep warm. There are warmer clothes that you can buy for your dog like woolen jerseys, thick sweaters, coats and even turtlenecks. Sadly few people know enough about the availability of dog clothes to know that they can get dog outfits for their precious pets.

Choosing the right winter outfit for your dog or even finding the right dog clothes for your short haired pooch doesn’t have to be difficult, but if you are weary about buying dog clothes and you are good with your hands, you should try making the clothes yourself. There are patterns that you can buy from pet stores and online. You can knit and sew anything from jerseys to little cute leg warmers and every other piece of clothing that will cover the essential exposed bits of your pooch’s body including their paws and complete the look with a beaded dog collar.

A dog raincoat is always a good idea if you live in an area that gets a lot of rain and snow. A good rain coat will ensure that the rain or whatever moisture rolls off and doesn’t get to your dog’s coat. You can never go wrong with buying a rain coat for your dog, except if you buy the wrong sized coat. As far as dog sweaters and jerseys are concerned the variety of designs is outstanding but again you should get the right size so your dog doesn’t get uncomfortable wearing them.

Different dogs take to clothing differently. How dogs respond to dog clothes sometimes depends on the breed. One dog might not like boots and another might really be averse to a dog hoodie or a coat. The other important thing that we almost forgot to mention is that dogs in clothes should still be able to “go” without feeling restricted by clothes.
