It’s no fun seeing your pup shivering in the cold on your regular morning walk. You may have never been one to dress up your dog before, but given the icy temperatures you deal with several times a day, you’re considering buying your dog a coat. Fancy options exist, of course, but if you’re looking for something more practical and with fewer frills, we’ve got you covered on that end too! When browsing through products, keep in mind your climate, your pet’s needs, and his or her personality to pick the best way to keep him or her warm this winter.
Have you got a sophisticated little pooch? She may love to wrap up in this Sherpa fleece-lined coat from Doggie Design.

It’s made from a light plaid cotton/poly blend that will contrast nicely with a dark-furred pet, and it also comes with a matching leash! It’s perfect for the middle of winter but also fancy enough for when you run into neighbors on a chilly morning stroll. It also comes in a holiday-themed plaid design.
Your pet’s days of playing in the snow just got a lot more fun! This closet staple is a must-have for any area of the country that experiences frigid winter temperatures.

If it rains all winter long where you are but you still want an option for keeping your pup warm and dry, check out this raincoat from fabdog .

Always be sure to measure your pet’s chest, neck, and girth (around his or her midsection) before choosing a coat. Our sizing guide is listed on each coat’s page, so you will be able to select the one that’s the best fit for your dog. Remember that regardless of which coat you choose for your best canine friend, the important thing is that he or she is warm and snug all winter long.
