cutedogcoatBefore you know it, the weather will be getting cooler and you’ll start noticing your little dog start to shiver while on his walk.I know with the temperatures in the high 90’s today in the north east  it’s hard to think that this weather will ever get cooler. As Fall approaches it’s time to think of buying him a dog coat. We do this to attempt to keep our little furry friend warm or to make a dog fashion statement but does your dog really like wearing that coat? Dog coats came about from people living in cold climates. Some breeds need extra layers in the cold weather. They are also a good conversation piece especially if there is someone in the park that you really want to meet and walks their dog the same time you walk yours. Smaller dogs generally wear dog coats but some larger dogs like Greyhounds that have very short hair may need to be kept warm so a coat may be appropriate. Dog coats come in all sizes and styles. There are hooded coats, dog sweaters, raincoats,and the list goes on. Dogs will usually tolerate their coats but some will do anything to pull them off like my dog used to do!

adoptpetYou’re at the shelter and want to take home all of the dogs needing home but can’t. You choose one lucky dog and are so excited to get him into his new home. My advice, take your time and make sure that you ask these important questions before finalizing the adoption.

  1. Does the shelter know anything about the dogs history? What kind of life did he have before he entered the shelter? Was he fed quality dog food? Was he abused? etc. If the shelter doesn’t have that information, don’t worry. A couple of visits and to get to know the dog one on one will really help.
  2. Does the shelter have medical history on the dog? This is very important. Any known health issues should be disclosed. If the animal has a long term or progressive illness, do your research. You don’t want to take on more than you can handle.
  3. Is the dog spayed or neutered?
  4. Does the dog have all of his shots?
  5. Does the shelter know of a good veterinarian? Find a vet before you adopt. The best way to find a good vet is through word of mouth. Ask the family, friends and the shelter for recommendations.

Make sure you’re prepared to take the dog home. Quality dog food, a comfy dog bed, a dog crate or carrier, dog leash and collar are essentials to have before you bring your new friend home.
