A dog coat is much more than just a fun, fashionable accessory. It has a considerable added health value, prevents diseases and alleviates complaints of dogs already ill.
Shorthaired breeds, animal protection dogs from the south, but also some long-haired breeds and hybrids have no warming undercoat. They cool down quickly in rain and cold, as they literally get wet down to the skin.
In the city the dogs are kept on a leash. There are waiting times before traffic lights or while shopping. The dog has fewer opportunities to warm up properly and increase body temperature. He starts to freeze, shiver and tremble. But also active dogs are grateful for a dog coat. They quickly lose a lot of heat after romping around and thus become more susceptible to injuries and illnesses.
Small dogs are also at a disadvantage in bad weather. With their short legs, they are even more exposed to the cold by the proximity to the ground. The sensitive abdominal region with its vital organs cools down more quickly.
Warming support is particularly important for older or sick dogs. Arthrosis, hip dysplasia or other joint problems cause them to move more slowly and less frequently. Wetness and cold increase the sensation of pain and can thus lead to further tension in muscles or injuries to tendons or ligaments. A well fitting dog coat keeps the seniors and patients warm and dry.
Save your darling in the cold season the trembling walks with drawn in tail and Trippelschritte. With a Cloud7 dog coat you have a happy, warmly wrapped dog at your side who wants to discover the world with you.
