Frequently Asked Questions

Measuring your dog for their new collar, harness, dog jacket or dog sweater.

Measuring for Dog Collars:

  1. Measure Neck Girth: Using a flexible tape measure, wrap it around your dog's neck where the dog collar will sit. Ensure you can comfortably fit two fingers between the tape and your dog's neck. This measurement is your dog's neck girth.
  2. Consider Collar Width: Depending on the collar style, you might need to measure for width as well. Wider collars can provide more comfort and support for larger dogs.

Measuring for Dog Harnesses:

  1. Neck and Chest Girth: Measure your dog's neck girth as you would for a collar. Then, measure the widest part of your dog's chest, typically just behind the front legs. Ensure the tape is snug but not tight.
  2. Back Length: Some harnesses may require measuring the length from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. This ensures a proper fit without impeding movement.

Measuring for Dog Coats and Dog Jackets:

  1. Neck and Chest Girth: Follow the same neck and chest girth measurement as for harnesses. This helps secure the coat without constricting your dog.
  2. Back Length: Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail along your dog's spine. This determines the coat's length.
  3. Consider Leg Openings: For coats with leg openings, measure the circumference of your dog's legs where the openings will sit. Make sure it's not too tight to avoid discomfort.

Measuring for Dog Sweaters and Dog Fleeces:

  1. Neck Girth: Measure your dog's neck girth just as you would for collars and harnesses.
  2. Chest Girth: Measure the widest part of the chest behind the front legs, ensuring a snug but comfortable fit.
  3. Back Length: Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail, similar to measuring for coats and jackets.
  4. Consider Leg Length: If the sweater or fleece has leg openings, measure the length from the neck to the desired leg opening to ensure a proper fit.

Measuring for Dog Base Layers or Dog Pajamas:

  1. Neck Girth: Measure your dog's neck girth to determine the appropriate size for the neck opening.
  2. Chest Girth: Measure the chest behind the front legs to ensure the base layer is snug but not restrictive.
  3. Back Length: Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail for overall length.
  4. Leg Length: If the base layer has leg openings, measure the length from the neck to the desired leg opening.

Always refer to the manufacturer's size charts and guidelines for the specific clothing brand you're purchasing, as sizing can vary between brands. When in doubt, opt for a slightly larger size to ensure your dog's comfort and freedom of movement.

When should I begin putting extra layers on my dog to keep them warm in the colder months?

Temperature Drops Below Freezing (32°F/0°C):

  • Cold-Weather Breeds: Dogs bred for colder climates, like Huskies or Malamutes, can generally tolerate colder temperatures without extra dog clothing. However, they might still benefit from added warmth in extreme cold and will generally benefit from boots in icy and snowy conditions to protect their paws or a waterproof jacket in wet weather to prevent them getting a chill and also to allow for quicker drying times when they come back inside.
  • Small Breeds: Smaller dogs, like Chihuahuas or Dachshunds, are more susceptible to cold due to their size and proximity to the ground. When temperatures reach 7 Decrees Centigrade, consider a dog sweater or dog coat, especially for short-haired breeds.

Sub-Freezing Temperatures (-20°F to 32°F / -29°C to 0°C):

  • All Breeds: In these frigid conditions, most dogs, regardless of breed, can benefit from extra warmth. Short-haired breeds may require thicker, insulated coats or jackets and even the layering of thermal fleeces or base layer under your dogs coat or dog jacket to keep out draughts and chills.
  • Elderly Dogs: Older dogs may struggle to regulate body temperature, so providing extra insulation in the form of dog clothing is essential to keep them warm.

Extreme Cold (-20°F/-29°C or Lower):

  • All Dogs: In extreme cold, it's critical to outfit all dogs with insulated dog coats or dog jackets, regardless of breed. Frostbite and hypothermia can pose serious risks, even for cold-weather breeds.
  • Puppies: Puppies have less body fat and are more susceptible to cold, so extra warmth is vital in sub-zero temperatures.

Factors to Consider:

  • Age: Puppies and senior dogs are more vulnerable to temperature extremes, so they may need dog clothing earlier and more often.
  • Health: Dogs with certain health conditions, such as arthritis or low body fat, require added protection from the cold.
  • Activity Level: Dogs that spend a lot of time outdoors or have high activity levels generate more body heat and may not need dog clothing as soon as less active dogs.
  • Size: Smaller dogs lose heat more quickly due to their size, making them candidates for dog clothing sooner.
  • Coat Length: Short-haired breeds or those with thin fur may need dog clothing sooner than dogs with thick, insulating fur.

Always observe your dog's behaviour. If they're shivering, seeking warmth indoors, or showing signs of discomfort in cold weather, it's time to invest in appropriate dog clothing to keep them cozy and safe such as dog boots, dog jackets and dog sweaters. Keep in mind that individual tolerance to cold can vary, so adjusting based on your dog's comfort level is essential.

How do I know if my dog is comfortable wearing their dog jacket, dog sweater or harness?

Knowing whether your dog is comfortable wearing a dog jacket, dog sweater, or harness is essential for their well-being and happiness. Here's a description of how a dog owner can determine their dog's comfort level:

Observe Body Language:

  1. Relaxed Posture: A comfortable dog will generally have a relaxed body posture. They won't be excessively tense or rigid while wearing the clothing.
  2. Natural Movement: Watch for natural movement. Your dog should be able to walk, run, sit, and lie down without restrictions or awkwardness.
  3. Tail Wagging: A happy and comfortable dog may wag their tail as usual, indicating they're not feeling stressed or constrained.
  4. Normal Behavior: Look for signs that your dog's behavior remains unchanged. They should engage in regular activities, play, and interact with you as usual.

Check for Physical Comfort:

  1. Proper Fit: Ensure the dog clothing fits well. It shouldn't be too tight, causing discomfort, or too loose, risking entanglement. Follow sizing guidelines and adjust as needed.
  2. Chafing or Rubbing: Examine your dog's skin for any signs of chafing, redness, or irritation. These are indications that the dog clothing may not be comfortable.
  3. Ease of Breathing: Listen for normal breathing sounds. If your dog is struggling to breathe or seems to pant excessively, the dog clothing may be too constricting.

Monitor Behavior Over Time:

  1. Gradual Introduction: Introduce the dog clothing gradually. Allow your dog to get used to it for short periods initially, then gradually increase the duration.
  2. Behavioral Changes: Pay attention to any behavioral changes. If your dog becomes anxious, agitated, or exhibits unusual behavior, they may not be comfortable.
  3. Temperature Response: In cold weather, observe whether your dog appears warmer and more at ease when wearing the dog clothing. In hot weather, ensure they don't show signs of overheating.

Seek Feedback:

  1. Vocalization: If your dog is uncomfortable, they may whine, bark, or vocalize to express their distress. Listen for such cues.
  2. Consult a Professional: If you're uncertain about your dog's comfort or if they show signs of distress, consult a veterinarian or professional dog trainer for guidance.

Remember that every dog is unique, and what works for one may not work for another. Be patient, and prioritize your dog's comfort and well-being. If your dog consistently shows signs of discomfort while wearing dog clothing, consider alternative options or consult a professional for advice.

What if my dog hates wearing dog clothes?

Introducing your dog to wearing dog clothing like dog jackets, dog sweaters, or dog life jackets can be a positive experience with a bit of patience and understanding. Here's how to address and manage any behavioral issues that may arise:

1. Start Slowly and Gradually:

  • Begin with short sessions: Initially, let your dog wear the dog clothing for brief periods indoors. This allows them to get used to the feeling without overwhelming them.

2. Choose Comfortable Dog Clothing:

  • Ensure proper fit: Select dog clothing that fits well and is comfortable for your dog. Avoid items that are too tight or restrictive.

3. Use Positive Reinforcement:

  • Treats and praise: Reward your dog with treats and praise when they wear the dog clothing without fuss. This positive association helps them see it as a good thing.

4. Observe and Address Discomfort:

  • Watch for signs: Pay attention to your dog's body language. If they show signs of discomfort (e.g., excessive scratching, pacing, or whining), remove the clothing immediately.
  • Check for irritation: Ensure there are no tags, seams, or fasteners causing discomfort or chafing. Opt for dog clothing with soft, non-irritating materials.

5. Gradual Exposure to Activities:

  • Practice during activities: Once your dog is comfortable indoors, gradually introduce the dog clothing during their regular activities, such as walks or playtime.

6. Associate Clothing with Fun:

  • Playtime and treats: Incorporate play and treats while your dog is wearing the dog clothing to create a positive connection between the two.

7. Consistency is Key:

  • Be patient: Understand that it may take time for your dog to fully adapt. Consistent, gentle training and reassurance go a long way.

8. Seek Professional Help:

  • Consult a professional: If your dog continues to struggle with dog clothing and exhibits severe behavioural issues, consider seeking guidance from a professional dog trainer or behaviourist.

Remember that not all dogs will take to dog clothing immediately, and some may never be comfortable with it. Always prioritize your dog's comfort and well-being. If dog clothing causes excessive stress or discomfort, it may be best to explore alternative ways to keep your pup warm or safe, such as adjusting the environment or using different gear.
