Training your dog in winter can be a brisk business. Keep on track with a cross-body bag with tilted opening for easy treat access. Stash an extra treat in your mittens. The doggie-tested sweater has a hook-and-loop closure along the side, perfect for pups who aren't keen on putting their paws through little openings, as well as a pocket for storing pick-up bags.

It is interesting to see sweaters and other cloths are made for dogs. But in my opinion dog doest need cloths or sweaters, they will never be comfortable in a dress. All that it needs is given by the nature, so it is better not to dress up your dog.windows-chat.com
