The Best Dog Gear For Fall And Winter
As the days get shorter and the nights get cooler, it is a sure sign that fall and winter are on their way. And for dog owners, that means it is time to start getting ready for the change in weather.
Whatever breed you have, it is likely to need some special items to be comfortable and safe. Here’s the best dog gear for fall and winter:
If your dog is sensitive to the cold or is going to be spending a lot of time outdoors (such as hiking or skiing in winter), the top of the line choice is the Powder Hound by Ruffwear. The construction combines synthetic insulation and will still work even if it gets wet with stretch fabrics to allow freedom of movement. It covers the dog’s underbelly and the tops of its front legs, which prevents uncomfortable snow buildup that often occurs on the chest and underarms.
For basic everyday insulated garment, it’s hard to beat the Loft jacket from Kurgo. The streamlined shape fits most dogs well, and it comes in five sizes with different colors, each reversible. It has a two-way zipper for easy collar access, two side panels that are adjustable with hook-and-loop fabric for a more tailored fit, is durable, water-resistant and is filled with high-efficiency synthetic insulation that works even when wet.
The All-Weather Dog Parka from Orvis is waterproof and lightly insulated, with reflectors to increase safety in the low visibility that accompanies bad weather, while the Houndtex laminated outdoor fabric wicks away moisture and odor, and repels wind and dirt. In rain, the perfect fit is important, so even though it comes in six sizes, they all have additional adjustments to dial in back length, belt and collar. A fast access harness opening lets you connect to a leash or harness with ease.
A hunting dog’s (or any dog in the outdoors) best friend. Double layered 1000 Denier breastplate and 1000 Denier coverage around the dog’s body protects the dog from briars, burrs, fencing, thorns, or barbed wire. Breathable. No buckles, snaps, or clasps. Secured with 2″ hook and 4-6″ loop depending on the size. A dog with a longer coat might need a larger size than their weight to fit properly.
