One of the most useful things that you can buy for your dog is a coat - and they are especially handy during the cold winter months! Long coats, short coats, heavy coats and light coats...the options and styles are endless. Our favourite type is a fleece dog coat. Lovely, snug and warm!.
Aside from keeping your dog warm, dog coats have other benefits such as protection from dirt and pests, and decreasing dog hair on your carpets if worn indoors. There are dog coats that are reversible and waterproof, ensuring your dog will not get wet or dirty! Cooling coats are also available to cool your pet down during the summer months.
There are many types of dog coat, one of which is the fleece dog coat. A huge array of fleece dog coats are being sold online and no doubt at your favourite local pet shops. Fleece dog jackets are popular because they keep the dogs warm and will look stylish at the same time. There's a good chance that a fleece dog coat will keep pooch warm much better than a normal dog coat will.
The good thing about fleece dog coats is that they can be worn anytime and anywhere. They are warm and snug coats fitted for your beloved animals comfort and hapiness. They often have the same fabric on both sides making for 'double insulation'!
This material is strong and can hold warmth inside, thus, you can be sure that your dog will always be snug during very cold weather like we've had in the UK for the past few winters.
Fleeces dry relatively quickly too - so if your dog gets wet, you do not have to worry too much about getting him dry with a towel. A fleece will not weigh too much for your dog, since it is a light weight material.
Which are the best fleece dog coats?
A classic fleece dog coat that would be best for your dog is made up of fleece both on the outside and inside. The coat has a thermal core which helps to keep your dog nice and toasty. A good fleece dog coat also has a reflector which will make it easy for you and others to see your dog at night or when there is low visibility.
Many fleece dog coats are washing machine friendly which makes them a doddle to wash. There's loads of styles and colours to choose from - we will leave that entirely up to you!
How much do they cost?
The price of dog's coats will vary drastically, mainly dependent on the size and material of the coat. Fleece dog coats can cost anywhere between £8.00 and £100.00 if you choose a designer brand! Remember that when you initially introduce a dog coat to your dog, there may be a period of resistance and opposition. Long term, however, your dog will love the benefits of being kept cosy warm during those cold British winters.
When buying a dog coat, there are several things to consider, such as the length of your dog, the broadest part of the dog's chest, and the neck circumference. The coat must not be too loose or too tight. It must be a perfect fit so that your dog will be comfortable wearing it. To get the right size properly, measure your dog from the base of the neck up to the tip of the tail. Your dog must be standing up and the head must also be upright, to get the exact measurement correctly.
Whether it's a small, medium, large or extra large fleece dog coat you're after, there's a size for every dog. Just shop around!
A fleece dog coat is the perfect, warm and snug way for your pooch to enjoy day to day life even when it's freezing outdoors!
