When does the Weim need a coat?

Shelli writes: This is my older dogs’ reflector jacket. It was so cold and the wind chill didn’t help either that I decided raein needed some warmth.  She was shivering so I took that as a hint. Ha Normally I don’t use a jacket but I will next time it gets that cold. Hope you like the pic. 🙂

Mama it's cold outside!

Breeder’s Note: A lot of folks use coats. Most of the time the coat is not a need; however, if the Weim becomes used to the idea, they will want it. Regardless, there are times when the coat affords much-needed protection. A Versatile Hunting Weimaraner needs a coat is when they are duck hunting. Sitting in the blind between ducks, can be very chilling for a Weim. Most duck hunters use a neoprene coat of some sort. However, for those hunting in temperate weather, they may not use a jacket at all.

  1. She looks like she likes it :o) We use a coat when we have degrees of frost,otherwise I go “naked”, to sweat under a coat would be bad too :o)

  2. I agree. I think (Raein) rarely wears a coat, because they run long distances –14 miles sometimes. So, unless the weather is twenty degrees (or the wind is blowing) she probably creates considerable body heat with that length of run.
