Question by Caroline: Should my short haired dog be wearing a “sweater” or “jacket” for walks in the winter?
We are in Chicago, so it’s pretty cold. I see people walking their dogs with jackets and sweaters on. Does it really help the dog stay warm or is it just to make the dog look cute?

Best answer:

What breed is it? I have a whippet cross and found stuff online saying they’re not good in cold conditions and need a coat. Use your common sense – if they shiver out there, they’re too cold. And yes, coats keep dogs warm :)
