The pet-products market is booming. But does your dog need a coat?

·1 min

In the midst of a frigid winter in Minnesota, many dogs can be seen wearing outerwear during their outings. Dog coats have become a serious business and indicate the changing relationship between humans and their pets. Whether a dog needs a coat depends on various factors like breed, size, age, health, and weather conditions. Smaller dogs and those with single coats are usually more sensitive to the cold. Geriatric and young dogs with health issues benefit from extra warmth. Dog fashion has evolved over time, with an increasing focus on functionality and outdoor gear. The pet product industry has seen significant growth, particularly during the pandemic. Customized dog coats and functional wear are popular choices for pet owners.
