Protecting your Pet in Cold Weather

October 30th, 2012 at 1:50 pm

As temperatures begin to drop, protecting our pets from cold weather and hypothermia becomes an important factor when taking them out for walks and romps in the park. Since not all pets are gifted with thick, warm fur coats, small dogs and those with little to no fur must rely on dog clothes to keep them warm and safe in winter. Apparel items such as dog jackets, dog hoodies and dog sweaters can provide the necessary warmth for many pups while still looking stylish.

In addition to pet clothes, many other practical pet products are available for fall and winter months. Winter dog accessories such as dog blankets, skincare products, fleece lined dog harnesses, dog boots, and dog hats are not only functional but can be stylish as well.

  • Funny fur offers an array of head and neck wear, including dog hats, snoods, scarfs and neck warmers to protect the thin skin on the head and ears.
  • Skincare products for pets, like Cain & Abel’s Paw Rub or Natural Dog’s Snout Soother work wonders on preventing and treating dry, cracked and chapped skin.
  • Dog shoes protect paws from cold weather, sharp objects, salt, chemicals and more. Funny Fur offers dog boots in an array of styles and sizes to fit any size dog. Looking for something affordable and simple? Our lightweight rubber PAWZ Dog Boots are ideal for a quick cool weather walk. For snowy or icy conditions, we recommend the Bark’n Boots Polar Trex dog boots for ultimate winter paw protection.

Funny Fur carries a wide selection of dog apparel and accessories to meet the needs of pet owners – large or small. Local Houston customers are welcome to stop by the Funny Fur store with their pets to get fitted for clothes and shoes, or you can visit for a larger selection of styles and sizes.
