Your dog may not be adequately acclimated to winter cold or summer heat. On the coldest of days, you may find him seeking warmth, cuddled on top of a favorite throw, or next to a heat vent. Exposed to the cold, it may take only a few minutes for him to become dangerously chilled. Under the hot summer sun, and under a hotter fur coat, he can suffer heatstroke, while the scorching pavement can burn his paws. Rain-soaked, his coat can be a misery. Fortunately, because owners across America are waking up to the benefits of clothing, dogs no longer have to tough out the extremes of weather on their own. In fact clothing can keep your dog cleaner, safer, and more comfortable.
