GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.- As the temperatures fall, our furry friends tend to get colder. Do you know what you should look for when buying a coat for them?

When you’re selecting a coat for your dog, take accurate measurements:

– Length (neck to base of tail)

– Girth (widest part around chest)

– Neck (measure circumference at base of neck)

– Weight

If you’re buying a coat for your dog:

– It should be easy on and off

– It should cover your dog’s chest if you’re looking to keep them warm

One tip: leave coats off of your dog at dog park. Why? It hides body language which is VERY important for other dogs when interacting in social situations.
