L’Arca del Masi Clothes for dogs: use them or not?
Do dogs feel cold just like us? Dogs are homeothermal animals (from the greek homos meaning equal and thermos meaning heat), they are, that is to say, able to control and maintain a constant body temperature even under changing external environmental conditions. Even if they have fur, dogs perceive more or less of the cold temperatures, depending on their age and physical characteristics. It is important to know what those are in order to know when to protect your pet from lower temperatures. Typically puppies and older dogs feel cold temperatures the most because they have more difficulty regulating their body temperature. When it comes to larger dogs, it can be said that they deal well with the cold.
