WHAT WE’RE DIGGIN’: Beat the Cold Weather Blues

winterchill

Whether you’re in Hawaii or in the East Coast’s Snowpacalpse, it’s COLD! Remember, you’re not the only one that needs to keep warm in the winter – your pup does too! Pups are just as sensitive to the weather as we are (if not more!). Don’t let the cool weather limit Bowser’s activity – go out there and play!

Keep your pup warm in that brisk weather with a fleece jacket or puffer vest! A fleece jacket that’s water resistant has a dual purpose – not only will it keep your dog nice and warm, but the outer shell is made with nylon – perfect for those walks in the rain! If your baby needs warmth over water-resistantance, then our best-seller fleece pullover will do the trick. It comes in an array of colors and is easy to pull on and take off, making it perfect if you need it on in a pinch! If you’re looking more for basic rainwear, then the reversible raincoat is ideal. Because it’s reversible, it’s basically like two raincoats in one! It’s hooded, making it the ultimate cover-up for rainy days. Another great addition to your pup’s winter wardrobe? Boots! Our Ruffwear Summit Trex Boots protect against salt or other snowmelt chemicals as well as protect against extreme temperatures. These boots keep moisture out of the paws and have great traction. It’s a win-win!

Another way to stay warm? Beds and blankets of course! Whether it be a super comfy throw, a cave bed (this could also work as an awesome hide-and-seek bed!) or a roll-up bed for comfort on the go, any type of soft and warm fabric is perfect for the cool weather!

Just because it’s cold and snowy out shouldn’t limit your fun outside. Now that you know how to keep warm, it’s time to go out and play! Check out the rest of our Winter Essentials Collection online or at any of our Muttropolis stores.
