Do Aussies Need A Lightweight Jacket/Vest?
Hello, I recently moved up North to Pennsylvania where it's much colder than in the South! My pup is 10 months old, and doesn't have his thicker, coarser adult coat yet. This is my first time living somewhere which gets colder than 55 degrees during the winter and can have heavy snow.
Even though Australian Shepherds have a double coat, should I get him a thin, fleece lined jacket or lightly insulated jacket?
We go for 1-2 daily walks, and play lots of games outside every day. Are there certain temperature zones which are guidlelines to go off of for double coated dogs? I'm sure I'm being overprotective of my pup, but just want to give my best 4 legged friend what he needs.
