With fall comes chilly weather, pumpkins and dog clothes. Clothes?
Shorthaired breeds in cooler climates need sweaters, jackets or coats.
I have given up on sweaters. Trying to get little legs into little sleeves gives little reward. Somehow a sweater will wind up around Jake’s waist before the walk is over. The same for a cute hoodie I bought last winter, and he didn’t like the hood.
If you can, take your dog to a pet store, one that does not sell dogs, and find the perfect fit. If you cannot do that, please check the store’s return policy. If you buy online, be sure to double-check your measurements. Yes, measure. Don’t guess your dog’s size or weight.
Jake here is modeling a custom-made coat. Hope’s foster mom, Barb, made it for him. I love it. So, if you can sew then get creative.
Jake likes this coat. It has a Velcro wrap around his tummy. He can’t wiggle it off and look like a four-legged, red-haired stripper strolling down the street
