A Puffer Coat That Will Retain Your Dog's Body Heat


Water and air will cause body heat to dissipate through a dog's skin. If you live in a coastal region that experiences weather fluctuations, dressing your dog in a puffer coat will keep your pet comfortable while the two of you spend time outdoors.

A Puffer Coat

A puffer coat is a quilted garment that is often lined with goose or duck feathers. Some puffer jackets may contain a synthetic material, in place of feathers. Stitching that is used to create the quilting on a jacket will separate the insulating materials and confine the feathers or the synthetic components within a series of chambers.

The combination of the insulating materials and the stitching will aid in heat retention. Puffer coats are noted for their lightweight and thermal properties. Although this type of outerwear is relatively popular among men, women, and children, it has also become a staple garment type that a variety of dog breeds can wear.

Product Types

Puffer coats that are designed for a pet to wear may contain pleats, elastic, zippers, snaps, and ties. The adornments will give a puffer coat a trendy appearance and may aid in keeping a coat snug around a pet's body. When shopping for a coat for your pet, compare the weight of various puffer products and inspect the stitching.

The insulating material type and the insulation quantity that is used to fill the quilted sections of a garment will reflect upon the overall weight of a product. Double stitching that has been neatly added to a garment will adequately contain the insulating materials and prevent them from dispersing to other parts of a garment. 

Sleeves And Convertible Products

A puffer coat may or may not contain sleeves. If you would like to purchase a product that contains long sleeves, measuring the length and width of your dog's front legs will be necessary. Select a coat that contains sleeves that come down to the top of your dog's paws. To prevent the sleeves from riding up, while your dog is walking or running, pick out a coat that contains sleeves that contain elastic or snaps.

A convertible puffer coat is one that can be used during any season of the year. This type of coat will have detachable sleeves. Read a manufacturer's guidelines, to acquire sizing information and care instructions. A coat may contain a waterproof outer layer that will protect delicate fabrics from the elements.
