Looking for products to make winter more comfortable for your dog? Consider the following cold-weather wares, available in pet stores and pet catalogs:

  • There's a wide variety of sweaters, rain gear, ponchos, capes, fleece wraps, snowsuits and coats to keep your pup toasty and dressed to impress.

  • Thermal dog beds, heating pads and bed warmers with sealed heating elements. Many use no more power than a 10- to 80-watt light bulb. Some can be used outdoors. But remember to use any thermal product with care, and follow all safety instructions to prevent burns and fires.

  • Microwavable heating pads keep your pet's bed warm for hours with no electrical cords.

  • Water bowls with heating elements keep your dog's water from freezing no matter how low the temperature.

  • Pet doors allow your dog to come in from the cold. Insulated doghouses and other enclosures keep your dog out of the bad weather.

    My son's border collie is 2 and chewes everything. He says that dogs shouldn't have lankets etc. in their outside kennels. I would like to try the rug that I use in my car that he sits on or a heating pad that we had for our cat.What do you suggest? We have haty bails around his igloo but the igloo itself is not insulated.
