This winter may mean more indoor activities for your pup and extra time with Nextflix for you. While you might wish you could stay inside and hibernate until spring, your pup will still need to get our to do their business and get some exercise.
Although your pup's hair or fur will protect them from the elements, they might need a little extra help in the coat department. This is especially true of young puppies, older dogs, smaller dogs and pups who are lean with shorter coats. To help you out, we rounded up a selection of jackets to fit your pup's needs, style, and of course your budget.
