The cold has already arrived and if we have already taken our coats out of the closet, we should also take into account that our faithful companions may need a warm garment, especially for the coldest days.
Although many people may think that it is an unnecessary item of clothing for the animal, our dog friends also need a series of extra care when this time of year arrives.
Today in our Brott Barcelona post we explain everything you need to know about dog coats.
Are dogs cold?
Let's start at the beginning and answer this question with a YES.
We must know that dogs have the same temperature receptors as us, so they also suffer heat and cold in the same way.
The dogs that suffer the most from the cold, in addition to puppies which have not yet developed the layer of fat under their hair that acts as thermal insulation, are older dogs since they have weaker muscle mass. We must keep in mind that short-haired dogs regulate heat loss worse, so they can get cold when we go for a walk and stay standing.
In any case, if you see your dog shaking and shivering during your walks, you should consider buying him a coat.
Benefits of dog coats
Dog coats are not only fashion, but progress in improving the quality of life of our dog companions because:
- Dog coats are very useful on rainy days, as they prevent water from soaking into the bones and preventing a greater sensation of cold from occurring.
- In addition, the coat becomes another layer of protection, this being a very positive aspect, since the coat makes parasites such as ticks or mosquitoes have less space in which to act.
- And offers protection against scratches from branches, etc. or possible bites on the back of other dogs or animals.
How to choose the best coat for our dog?
When choosing the best coat for our furry dog, we must keep in mind that the coat must be appropriate for his size, covering his neck, belly and, above all, his back, since if we choose a coat of the wrong size it can cause friction or limitation in your movements.
The dog coat we choose should also be easy to put on and secure to prevent escape.
