Winter is coming and for our Canadian dogs, this means snow, sleet, and freezing temperatures. Check out our tips for picking the perfect winter coat for your pup!
Short-haired breeds are often the most sensitive to the cold. Try outfitting your dog in an insulated, waterproof coat to keep them cozy all winter long.
Dogs with medium-length hair typically benefit from a lighter-weight or ‘in-between’ coat that helps provide warmth without overheating your pup.
Long-Haired/Double Coated Dogs
No need for insulated coats here, double-coated and longhaired breeds are built for the colder temperatures! Your dog may appreciate a lightweight or waterproof coat during stormy weather.
Fit A Dog Coat Like A Pro!
Using two easy measurements, you will be able to find the perfect fit for Fido in no time! Check out Shedrow K9’s Youtube channel for more information.
Measure from the nape of the neck to the base of the tail. This will give you the required length of the coat.
Measure around your dog’s chest, just behind the front legs. This will give you the required width of the coat.
