I used to give mine the PetSmart brand coat improver. They have three levels--I used both the first and second levels to good effect. I got a lot of compliments on theirs coats from stranger, and from heir vet. I stopped when I started giving everybody fish and/or salmon oil. The oil seems to improve their coats a great deal.

I meant brand name dog coats,one buys, but they may not need one, just wondering about walking in real cold weather.

We are in Ontario Canada, so it gets cold and snowy. My 2 have the Greenhawk Shedrow Dog Blankets. Greenhawk Harness & Equestrian Supplies | Greenhawk. Greenhawk is a horse supply store and they have basically taken their best horse blankets and tailored them for dogs. My girls are on the small side (21.5 inches and 45 lbs and 21.5 and 55 lbs) and they wear a large. I hope your dog is a girl if you want one, because the one you want is the purple plaid as it is the warmest (it has polyfil). The black is simply a wind proof water proof shell. They have other colours, I don't know if you call they will offer others, mine have a green/blue plaid.

I generally do not think a golden needs a jacket, and for short outings I wouldn't put one on mine. I put it on when it is snowing, it helps keep them dry, and when they spend a day at the ski hill with and when the temp. is more than 10 below or if there is a wind chill warning. Also after they have been swimming in the doggie pool in the winter. I figure better safe than sorry.

Coats

I put jackets on my old girl when it gets really cold out and we're outside for while. I worry she'll get a chill and get sick. She still tries to break the ice on the creek to lay down in the ice cold water though. She wears the one in the attached link in an x-large and she's about 75lbs. The other two don't wear jackets though. Unless you live in a terribly cold climate (I'm in Buffalo, NY so it gets pretty chilly), I wouldn't worry too much.

I saw some horses today with blankets on.
I was told that Golden Retrievers don't need coats.
I wonder why.

They seem to be born with an adequate coat for most weather.

I suppose if it's well below zero, that's a different story. We get that here sometimes, but you won't catch me staying out there very long.

Lately, it's been in the mid 20s when I take Bella for her morning walk. That certainly doesn't phase her.....except for one thing. She does not like sitting on the frosty grass. LOL.

My mom makes them for all the dogs. The yorkies get knitted and feece sweaters and coats frequently. My goldens not so much since they really don't need them except in the bitter cold with wind.

My dogs start to feel less hot when it gets below 30...My boy finds that anywhere between 25 and 40 is the best temperature for swimming in the ocean or river! I've been hiking and running with him in weather as cold as -15F for an hour or more...as long as I am bundled and we both stay moving, he pants just like if it were 50 degrees warmer... I think it would take cold much harsher than any of us would like to be in to bother goldens.
