The Cape got its first big snowstorm of the season last weekend. With well over a foot in some places, it was quite respectable, by hearty New England standards. Sadly, it has entirely melted after a few 50-degree days, but the fresh snow gave us a chance to try out some of our favorite winter apparel on our own dogs. Thanks to dog-sized boots and coats, our furry friends were warm, dry, and comfortable out in the wintery wonderland. There are plenty of options out there for pooch-friendly winter wear. We’ve searched far and wide to find the most stylish (come on, how cute is that plaid coat?), functional, and comfortable coats and boots. Check ‘em out below!
Kodiak Plaid Coat
This coat by Petrageous Designs is wind and waterproof and offers full chest and back coverage. A Velcro closure around the waist is easy to fit around your dog. It is thoughtfully designed with places for an ID, reflective stitching, and elastic leg straps and comes in a variety of sizes (and in two different colors!).
Kong High-Top Boots
These cute little booties (made by Kong) protect your dog’s paws from snow, cold, and rock salt with a combination of thick rubber soles and neoprene sleeves. Velcro straps make for a tight fit and they are available in a variety of sizes.
