The above picture is of Dexter, a very handsome boxer mix, that used to stay with us often. Since Spring is taking its time to arrive, make sure that your canine companion is properly attired when you go out with him. Dogs that have short hair like Dexter need to wear a coat or sweater or both to keep them warm.
Dogs that are very lean, like my Alex, also need to wear a coat when the weather is cold. In Alex’s case, I make her wear both a sweater and a coat. She is not too crazy about it, but I need to make sure that she is warm.
Dogs look adorable in sweaters, that’s for sure, but remember that for many dogs like short-haired dogs, and lean dogs, wearing a coat or sweater is a necessity.
