Buy a dog coat or dog pullover online
Thick scarf, hat and a lined winter jacket: when we humans set out for a winter walk with our dogs, we wrap up warm. Many dog owners rightly ask the question: Does my dog also need special dog clothing?
In some dog breeds, the undercoat thickens in the cold winter months due to hormonal control and keeps them naturally warm. However, many breeds that were originally bred for warm climates but are now at home in cold climates do not cope so well with colder temperatures. For example, if you don't want to miss out on long walks in the rain and snow with your little Chihuahua in winter, you should think about ordering a dog coat or dog jacket.
Which dogs need dog clothes?
Some dogs love it, others can't stand the cold temperatures and rain. But how can you actually tell if your dog is cold when you're out walking? When dogs are warm, they pant. If they are cold, they show it with similar bodily reactions as we humans do: they shiver. So if you notice that your dog is shivering when you go for a walk, you should look for a dog coat to protect him from the cold. Whether your dog gets cold outside depends, apart from natural predisposition, on factors such as
- the intensity of movement
- the coat density
- and the age of the dog
Freshly shorn or short-haired dogs and naked dogs are considered particularly sensitive to cold and wet conditions. But large breeds with thin fur and slender dog breeds also have to struggle with cold temperatures. Dalmatians, Boxers, Greyhounds or a Doberman are therefore often seen wearing a winter dog coat or a rain coat for dogs.
Dog coat with belly protection for dogs with thin fur
Small dogs have their bellies closer to the cold ground and therefore cool down faster than large dogs. We want to see the little fur noses romping around outside even in winter and therefore have a large assortment of HUNTER dog coats and dog pullovers - also for puppies. Because especially with young dogs, the belly fur is still very thin. For dogs with sparse belly fur, it is best to choose a dog coat with belly protection or a dog pullover with fleece. The all-round protection prevents a cold or chill. Make sure that the fabrics of the dog coat, dog scarf and Co. are soft, do not press or pinch, so that your dog feels comfortable. Choose the right size of dog clothes so as not to restrict the dog's freedom of movement. HUNTER pays special attention to the selection of very high quality materials and comfortable fabrics, so that your dog is not bothered by the clothes.
Dog shoes protect from salt and snow
Dogs' paws are sensitive and are attacked by grit or road salt in winter. To protect the paws from reddening, slipping or freezing on icy surfaces, there are dog shoes. With a non-slip sole, your dog's outdoor fun can continue even in winter.
Dog waist coat for safety in the dark
In our online shop for dog accessories you will also find dog waist coats with reflectors so that road users can still see the dog well after dusk.
As you can see: dog clothing is not just a cute accessory for lapdogs, but sensible, functional dog accessories for cold days. Equip your dog for walks in autumn and winter!
