Fashion or Function – Do Dogs Need Cold Weather Gear?
From sweaters to coats to vests, outerwear for dogs comes in a wide variety of options. We all know how cute dog sweaters and coats are, but are the necessary for the pet – or only for the owner? Think of it this way – just like the chilly temperatures of winter take their toll on humans, the pets we love feel the chill as well. Unless your dog is a double-coated one – like a Siberian Husky or Australian Shepherd – he’s likely to appreciate an extra layer of protection a coat or sweater has to offer, just as much as you are.
Pet outwear is particularly suitable for puppies, senior dogs, and short-haired breeds, but almost any dog can benefit from it’s added warmth. Your dog enjoys the warmth of your home and experiences the same drop in body temp when they venture outside that you do. That change in temps can make your pet hesitant to romp, play, or relieve himself outside. His natural coat may not provide all the cold weather protection he needs.
The key to finding the right sweater for your dog is knowing what to look for. Rather than choosing a bulky sweater, you’ll want to look for one that offers lightweight, comfortable, reliable warmth. Additionally, you want a sweater or coat that’s easy to put on your pet and just as easy to take off, because it won’t matter how fashionable or functional the sweater is if your dog fights you every time he needs to wear it. Finally, you want one that offers superior quality at an affordable price.
DOGO Pet’s collection of outerwear for your dog fits the bill. Our coats and sweaters also come with a leash attachment, step-in leg design, and full belly coverage that provides all around protection from rain and snow. With the right outerwear, your dog can be stylish, trendy, and fashionable while they’re also warm, safe, and protected from harsh weather.

The Runner Coat also stretches around your pet’s chest for an easy, comfortable fit. Your dog’s belly will be completely covered eliminating rain, snow, and dirt from collecting in their fur. It also zips and snaps easily and smoothly on top of the pet’s back without snagging sensitive fur or causing unwanted zipper distress.

Most dog owners go to great lengths to ensure optimal health and hygiene for the pets they cherish. Unfortunately, too many overlook good dental health. Your dog’s teeth, tongue, and gums need as much care as all the rest of her. A healthy mouth leads to better nutrition and better overall health and wellbeing.
A toothache or sore gums can cause your pet unnecessary pain and stress. If left untreated, sore, diseased teeth and gums can affect your dog’s bloodstream, kidneys and liver. Poor dental hygiene can also cause tooth loss that can make it difficult for your pet to eat, which leads to poor health in general. Try regular, but not daily, tooth brushing. Brushing your dog’s teeth will loosen plaque and improve the smell of your dog’s breath. It can be challenging and you need to be careful not to brush to vigorously or make your dog so uncomfortable that he never wants a tooth brushing. It may take some getting used to for both of you, but is worth the time and effort.
Want an easier solution? Try our fun Crochet Toy Collection. What looks like toys to you and your pet are actually cleverly hidden dental tools. They come in bright colors and fun shapes like ice cream cones, fish, balls, and spaceships. Made of sturdy, interlaced, 100% cotton thread, they’re flexible, durable, and contain a squeaky feature that equate to hours of fun for your dog. While your pet is having fun, the crochet toy is hard at work removing deposits of calculus that destroy dental health.
Take a step in the right direction and order one for your pet today. She’ll love the fun and entertainment. You’ll love the relief of knowing your dog is getting the care she needs at her own pace. It’s a safe, simple, superior way to provide the quality dental care your pet deserves.
Walking your dog and maintaining control of the walk and the pet are essential parts of dog ownership. Collars and leashes are the usual method of doing so. Pet parents have long looked for more comfortable alternatives. We’ve heard your concerns and preferences and have come up with the EasyGo Harness. Made of a variety of plush material, our soft harnesses are easy and safe for your pet to wear.
Get out your tape measure and measure your dog’s chest and torso. Then look at our convenient sizing charts to find the perfect fit. Next, measure your dog’s personality – and yours, too. These durable harnesses come in so many styles, colors, and patterns that you’ll be tempted to purchase more than one. Choose the ones that fit your pets character and your budget and you’ll both be happy campers.
Your pet’s health, happiness, and comfort are your chief concerns. Our buckle-free designs are easy for your pet to simply step into. That makes it much easier to secure than the traditional dog collar. If your dog bristles at having a collar around his neck, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how he happily steps into his new harness. We can’t emphasize enough how easy it is to get your pet into our harness. Check out these YouTube clips that show our happy customers demonstrating how easy it is for dogs to step into them. Each one comes with a matching lead for your leash as well.
It’s much easier to gain control of your animal when the leash and harness safely encompass his torso, rather than pull at his neck. The slight choking sensation a collar and leash can create can make the most well-trained, well-behaved dog fight against it. You can eliminate any choking hazard or other discomfort with a soft, full torso harness.
Soft harnesses are also a godsend when your pet is recovering from an illness or surgery and wearing an e-collar. E-collars make it extremely difficult to attach a leash to the neck. Our EasyGo soft harnesses make that struggle a thing of the past by securing safely to the pet’s torso and not interfering with the e-collar at all. Easy to put on and easy to wear, they’re tangle-free and just plain cute!
Pet parents probably dislike the dreaded “cone of shame” as much as pets do. It’s a necessary safety and protection tool, though, in the event of a pet injury or illness. Designed to discourage biting, licking, and scratching, the e-collar is used following and some surgeries or illnesses to promote healing. If you and your pet find yourselves in need of an e-collar, consider our line of soft e-collars. Here’s why:
Also called recovery collar, Elizabethan Collar, and e-collar, traditional e-collars are made of stiff, hard plastic. This type of e-collar just can’t be very comfortable for your fur baby. It’s not easy to look at, either. Made of water resistant, stain resistant polyester, our Elizabethan recovery collars are easy to clean and maintain. They come with extra sturdy, easily adjustable Velcro straps that will keep your dog more comfortable while they heal.
The e-collar for dogs is invaluable for keeping your pet from tearing out stitches or exacerbating an injury. While dogs are healing, they shouldn’t have to endure the additional discomfort that comes with traditional e-collars. Our soft e-collar comes in two adorable patterns, two colors, and six sizes. Carefully weigh and measure your pet, then select the size that fits them best and ensures they get the comfort they need during the recovery process. The lightweight soft e-collar is also easier on the dog’s neck since it weighs so little.
Finally, it’s much easier for the owner and the vet to work with a dog who isn’t fighting against a rigid e-collar. That means the soft e-collar for dogs is not only better for the animal, it’s better for the owner and vet as well. No pet parent wants to see their pet in distress. Our soft, comfortable e-collars are cute to look at, soft to wear and sleep in, and easier on the pet parent’s soft heart.
