Must Haves for Cold Weather
Dog Sweater
Dogs look adorable in sweaters, and they're one of the warmest garments out there, often with better coverage than standard dog coats, and with no uncomfortable straps or buckles.

Outdoor Dog Coat
Your canine companion has to go out no matter how cold it is, but he shouldn't have to freeze when outdoors, so a quality dog coat with a thick lining and a waterproof outer layer is a must-have for winter walks.

Dog Booties
No matter how hardy your dog is, their paws should be protected from snow, ice, salt, and ice melt chemicals. Icy particles and snow can collect between their toes, and most road salts and deicers are toxic to dogs.

Nice to Haves for Cold Weather
Soft Crate
Your dog may feel warmer sleeping in a soft crate with blankets and cushions than on a regular bed. A soft crate, while still breathable, is slightly more insulated than a wire crate and therefore warmer inside.

All-Weather Pet Door
It's fairly common for dog owners to use pet doors to let their dogs go in and out of the yard at will, but you can lose a lot of heat through a pet door. All-weather models are well-insulated and have other features to keep drafts at bay.
