As you know, Toby hates wearing jackets, sweaters, rain coats — pretty much any type of dog clothing. In the past four years, I can count on one hand when he’s worn one, and it’s usually been when he’s been super cold — or getting a lot of attention.
The other night I was taking him with me to go watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks by the lake and was worried he would be cold. After a lot of hesitation I purchased a Boots & Barkely medium size reflective jacket at Target.
It was $9.99 and I figured since it was reflective and we were going to be working in a very dark area, it would be good. Plus, it was fleece like on the inside and Toby loves anything fleece.
Sure enough, Toby wore the jacket the whole time without a fuss. These come few and far between, but I think he might like this. I like it because it’s reflective and good for walking at night.
How are your dogs with wearing jackets and sweaters to keep warm? Do they love it, hate it or tolerate it?
