Providing protection against the weather
There is no "bad weather" - just the wrong clothing! This applies to our dogs as well as us. When it's cold outside, vets and experts recommend wrapping up our dogs, small or large, to help provide a bit of extra protection. Here at zooplus we offer a great range of dog coats, dog jumpers and high-visibility clothing, ideal for adventurous walks in the wind and wet!
What is dog clothing?
It is easy to assume that our dogs are well-dressed enough with their fur coats. However, in many situations additional dog clothing can be particularly useful when out and about. For example, dogs that have recently undergone operations or suffered from illness that has resulted in large patches of hair being missing, a dog coat can provide essential protection against wet, cold or bright sunshine. Many dog breeds are also naturally born with little to no coat, or without a protective undercoat or much subcutaneous fat. This means that rain gets straight to the skin and can leave your dog freezing cold.
In these situations, a dog coat or dog jumper can be a great help. Very small dogs can also be particularly at risk in these situations, as they can get wet, cold stomachs. Wearing a dog pullover can really help! Older or unwell dogs can also often struggle with their bi-annual coat change, so an additional layer of protection can be beneficial in supporting good health.
Here at zooplus we also offer a range of high-visibility dog clothing, which is ideal if you often find yourself walking the dog in the dark or during poor weather conditions.

- Protection against wet and cold (particularly beneficial for unwell, older or smaller dogs, or dogs with insufficient coat)

During the winter months when nights are longer and darker, going for an evening walk can be a dangerous business. Here at zooplus we offer a great range of reflective dog clothing to help keep you and your pet safe, as well as offering reflectors and tags to add to your dog's collar or harness.
Dog boots - protect the precious paws!
Dog shoes and dog boots can be a great way to protect sensitive paws from infection or injury, as well as being helpful if your dog is recovering from injury. We also recommend using dog boots for longer walks or on uneven ground. They are easy to slip on and help to keep your dog's paws safe.
Dog life jackets - for water-lovers!
Dog life jackets are essential if you plan to take your dog out on the water, as well as being beneficial when teaching your dog to swim or letting it play in large bodies of water.
How do I find the right size of clothing for my dog?
Your dog's coat needs to fit perfectly, otherwise it could be restrictive and prevent your dog from moving around properly. Your dog should be able to walk around as normal and happily enjoy itself when wearing it. Here at zooplus we offer dog clothing in a range of different sizes and fits, so you can be sure you are choosing something that fits your dog perfectly. We will also provide stomach and neck circumference sizes, so you know your dog will not be restricted. The back length should be measured from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. The neck circumference should be measured around the lowest point of your dog's neck and the stomach circumference should always be directly behind the rib cage. The sizing tables provided with each item can help you to choose the right size.
