Re: Do you have a rain coat for you dog?
I can honestly say being the owner of 2 smaller dogs I still cannot bring myself to getting coats for any of my dogs. My Cairns have a similar coat to a GSD, soft undercoat and a wire outer coat, which is waterproof and dirt proof. I tried to put a coat on Scooter since we got down to 10 below this winter but it lasted for about 10 feet of our walk, he had his feet stuck in it because he was trying so hard to get it off. The only coat I can get on him is his life jacket.
Sometimes I feel like Dozer could get cold because he still has his puppy coat but he seems to do ok. He smells pretty ripe right now, he got nuetered and I cannot give him a bath. He goes to daycare so he smells like a wet dog and a kennel, I bought some waterless foam shampoo that smells good until I can give him a bath.
