Fine, they seemed ridiculous to us when we first read about them: Doggles, the goggles for dogs. But it turns out, our pooches could actually use a little eye protection during the windy winters. And that got us thinking...what other cold weather tools for dogs have we dismissed out-of-hand that might actually be a comfort to our pooch? So RedPlum rounded up our five favorite affordable pieces of cold-weather gear from dog coats to doggles to keep Jack Frost at bay this season.
Protect Fido’s eyes from foreign objects, bone-chilling wind and driving rain (no matter what the season) in this classic protective eyewear. Your canine companion will be able to pull off a rollicking impression of Snoopy in his WWII Flying Ace get up, too ($19.99).
Fire Hydrant Puffer Jacket
Perfect for those mornings with just a slight nip in the air, Target’s Fire Hydrant line features a polyester puffer jacket in green with neutral trim for girls or boys (SM, MED, LG sizes are all $11.99).
Cheyenne Shearling Dog Coat
This coat is both stylish and functional. Smooth mocha- or caramel-colored faux suede keeps your pet stylish enough for casual or dressy outings, and toasty enough to brave the evening chill. Buy the dog boots to match and complete the outfit (SM, MED, LG sizes are $16.99 to $29.99).
Ruff Wear K-9 Overcoat II
Your pup will brave the muckiest of conditions in this windproof and water-resistant shell. Designed for medium to large dogs, this coat features four-ply Taslan© material and a light loop for dawn or dusk outings.(M, L, XL sizes are $27.97).
Dog Boots from Drs. Foster and Smith
All that ice and snow can be "ruff" on paws. Protect Fido’s tootsies with space-age dog boots in silver from Drs. Foster and Smith. Zippered fronts and grippers on the soles not only mean easy on and off, but more importantly that these boots will stay on as Fido sachet’s through the neighborhood or lollygags in the back yard (Xsmall-Large sizes $17.99).
Baby, it is cold outside, but with low-cost apparel for cold days and even colder nights, your fur-baby doesn’t have to limit wintertime time fun to the indoors.
