Discussing doggo fashions in the lead up to our pet parade!
With all this talk about winter, it’s important not to forget our furry friends! Just because they’ve got fur coats (what a faux paw), this may not be enough to stop snoopy from shivering!
So how do you know if your pup is really feeling the cold. Dogs with thicker coats like German Shepards or Alaskan Malamutes are bred for colder climates, so Australian winters are generally less stressful for these breeds. However, short hair breeds such as terriers, labradors, and dachshunds have a harder time weathering the chill.
One great way to test if it’s too cold for your dog is to simply stand outside. If it’s too cold for you, then it’s safe to assume that it’s too cold for your dog.
It’s not just discomfort you’re trying to avoid. You may not know this but dogs are susceptible to all varieties of viruses, so take extra care to watch for signs of illness; sneezing, coughing, congestion all apply.
If your pet is feeling the cold, it might be time to visit Bulli Showground Markets and talk to Bianka from Rrruff about a snazzy jacket or matching dog bed. She designs the pieces herself and has a real love for all dogs great and small. Find them online at https://rrruff.com.au/
