Even though dogs have fur coats, not every pup can withstand cold temperatures. Unless your dog has a thick double coat, such as a Siberian Husky, your pet probably wouldn’t mind extra warmth in the winter time. In fact, for some breeds, such as Weimaraners, this extra measure may be necessary. Listed here are some of the best winter coats for dogs.
The North Pole Parka is perfect for days when the frozen tundra is too much for your pup to bear. This jacket is made of a water-resident shell that is filled with faux down stuffing. The lining is comprised of ultra soft fleece, and faux fur trims the jacket for a fashionable flair. Better yet, the jacket is machine washable, which is perfect for the dog that likes to make snow angels in the yard. Additional details include a pocket for storage, dual Velcro closure, and a slit for connecting leash or harness.
Great White North, $74.95 – $129.95
Does your dog need protection from extreme temperatures? If so, the Great White North jacket is perfect for your pup. This jacket is designed to withstand temperatures as cold as -30o C.

In addition, this 100% waterproof polyurethane jacket is lined with Canadian, non-pilling fleece, and is machine washable. Scotchlite details ensure nighttime visibility.
Another jacket made in Canada, this 3-in-1 suit is the perfect multi-use garment for the adventurous dog.
