Jackets

Much like humans, dogs will need a jacket from time to time, whether it’s a insulated jacket for those cool ascents or a float coat for keeping them safe whilst swimming, our range of Ruffwear products will suit their every need.

jackets for your dog for the cold

Types of Jackets- When choosing the type of jacket there are a few things you need to consider

 

  1. Sleeves or sleeveless- Sleeved coats are perfect for short-haired dogs in cold temperatures, or for those long-haired dogs whose legs and bellies collect large clumps of snow. If your dog is much broader in the shoulders then perhaps a sleeveless jacket will suit better.
  2. The Weather- We all know weather can be unpredictable up on the hills, ranging from blustery showers, snow storms to blazing sunshine. When choosing the right coat for your dog it’s important to consider where they will be exploring. Choose from insulated, windproof, waterproof, lightweight and cooling jackets.
  3. The Activity- If you live in a colder climate or plan on taking your dog with you in the mountains then an insulated or fleece lined jacket will be the best. Want something for the warmer days in summer, a cooling vest will be the best match. Whatever you plan on doing, make sure you have the best kit for your dog so they enjoy it just as much as you do.
