Does your dog love winters or would he rather cuddle up on the couch under a cozy blanket? Either way, you should be prepared to protect him when he ventures out into the elements.
Many dog owners live with the misconception that because their pets have a coat of fur, they can tolerate the cold better than humans. This isn’t necessarily the case. Like us, these fur-coated creatures are used to the warmth of indoor shelter and cold weather can be as hard on them as it is on us humans. Whatever your viewpoint on winter, one thing remains certain: it’s a time when our beloved pets need a little extra care.” I am the dude”, “I am strong”, happily unmarried”, such are the cold quotes on your dog sweaters that would save from cold and he would look extra cute in his warm furry stylish coat. Starting from the colour combination to the quotes written on the dog sweaters has grabbed the attention of almost everybody. The best part is it won’t take you much extra effort to ensure winter cosiness for your canine pal as the sweater keeps the canine warm and safe from shivering cold.
According to Antarpreet Toor veterinary doctor at sector 11 said ,” During the winter season, many dogs feel the cold as much as their owners do, especially dogs that are not habituated to the cold, or that have specific cold weather traits. Keeping your dog warm through the winter months is important to maintaining top health, and now a day’s trend and care go hand in hand, be it the case of humans or canines.
He said, “It depends from breed to breed as some dogs feel too cold, others barely feel it and usually enjoy this cold season. Taking an extra effort and by knowing your dogs’ basic needs one can surely go for a sweater or sweatshirt”.
He further added, “It is also important to remove the coat in the afternoon and let your pooch take a little sunshine. Brush your dog twice by removing his coat as it will keep his fur healthy. Providing your poochie with a healthy diet to keep him fit and healthy accessorizing is equally important”.
There are trendy looking sweaters or sweatshirts not only make poochie look smart and cool but also keep the poochies cold free.
Talking about the new colours and designs of the coats, the dog lovers have satisfied themselves. For Mona Khattar, a resident of sector 15, “I have a Labrador and he loves to sleep in a cosy way so I have bought a blue soft coat for him”, she looks so cute in it, she added”.
Apart from the colours and quotes, the other attraction is the hoodies attached to the coats and the sweaters. “The hoodies are of various styles like with horns; with some cartoon on the hoodies. So many people come and buy different styles and different colours of coats and sweaters, “said Sagar Kumar, a manager at pet shop at sector 26 Chandigarh.
