It is important to make sure your best friend is kept warm throughout the wintertime just like you do. Even in the cold weather, it's important for you and your dog to get some exercise outside. Plus, who doesn't need some fresh air on the daily? That is why it's important to accessorize your pooch the best way possible, to ensure they are not uncomfortable or cold.
This list of the best winter gear for your dog will have your pup set for even the worst winters. Plus, maybe you can get yourself a matching sweater for Christmas!
Fleece Lined Weatherproof Pet Coat by Midlee
Starting off with a basic staple for winter gear for your dog, this weatherproof pet coat by Midlee is perfect for any kind of dog. This option just happens to be the extra large size.
The fleece interior and softshell exterior provide both warmth and protection from snow and rain. It's also nonrestrictive to the pup's legs, by only covering the chest and back, allowing them to play and run as they please. The vest also has a reflective ribbing for late night runs or walks, since it gets dark at 5 PM, now.
Waterproof Dog Collar by Dublin Dog Co.
A simple accessory, but a necessity for gross, damp days. This winter gear for your dog is best used in ugly weather due to its waterproof aspect. Unfortunately, not all collars are weatherproof, and getting your pooch a specific collar for those days is essential.
Plus, the Dublin Dog Co has different color options that can match a new leash. And since it's waterproof, this eliminates that gross wet dog smell and bad texture. Bring your dog through the woods, down snow banks, or just around the neighborhood with no stress.
Supportive Pet Shoes by DealYard
Yes, it is possible for pups to get frostbite, especially on their sensitive little dog paws. These performance shoes will protect your dog from the cold with the rubberized soles, as well as prevents them from hot pavement in the summer, when it gets above 95 degrees.
The soles also do a great job of preventing your pooch from slipping on ice, as well as some extra ankle support from the straps. Be confident in your dog's warmth and safety after easily strapping these on before your daily walks. Dog boots are definitely one of the best options for winter gear for your dog.
