What to Look for In a K9 Winter Jacket

With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to find a winter jacket for your dog that is functional and easy on the eyes. As dog walkers in Chicago know, there are a few requirements that can ensure you get the best bang for your buck.

1. Material: Although that faux fur trimmed hood may be the most adorable thing ever, keep in mind that when your pet goes on walks, s/he will be subjected to the endless amounts of slush in Chicago. The salt and slush can damage delicate pieces. A proper coat should be durable, and machine washable. Ain't nobody got time to hand wash!

2. Texture: Again, this can play a role in the washability of your dog's coat, but you also want to check the itchy factor. IT won't be a fun walk if every little twig or burr gets picked up and held by the material, especially if your furry friend wants to itch his/her back every other block by wriggling on the ground.

3. Cut: Yes following measurement guides is key, but also make sure that you're checking things like the depth of the model dog's chest and if it covers their stomach or not.

Following these guidelines should help you find the perfect fit for your furry friend!
