Suit up

When you and your dog head out for some exercise, she may feel more comfortable wearing a sweater or coat, especially if she has short fur or seems to dislike the chilly weather. Try a few styles to find one that works. Look for a garment with a high collar or turtleneck. It should cover her belly and extend all the way to the base of her tail. Have a few on hand so you never have to put a wet one back on your pooch.
