THINGS TO CONSIDER
Remember that dogs with relatively thicker fur like the Huskies plus Samoyeds, already have natural insulation. Therefore, the thick coats make them overheat under extra layers. On the other hand, if your dog has thin fur (especially if he is greyhounds) he may easily get chilled during the cold weather. Also, keep in mind that small dogs are likely to benefit more from the additional protection of clothing. The same applies to senior, weak or sick canines, not forgetting those with arthritis.
Getting the right size for him can be tricky. Thus, you should always have his measurements on your phone. Measure your canine’s chest & neck. Also, measure the distance from the neck down to his tail. Remember, dot let clothing restrict his movement. Ensure that his clothes are not too tight around the chest as well as limbs.
