The Best Sun Protection Clothing for Dogs Out There

The temperatures are getting higher, and we're seeing sun in the sky more often now. Taking a walk with your pooch in the late spring or in summertime can be a very pleasant experience for both of you. However, you need to be careful if you take your dog out in the sun because the UV rays can harm your dog’s skin.

Many pet owners assume that dogs being dogs, and coming from the wild, don't really need any protection, neither from the sun, rain, snow or other elements. That is, sadly, not true – and dogs can greatly benefit from protection, which ensures better skin, better health and longer lifespan.

There are several ways to protect your pooch from the harm of sun and UV rays. The most obvious one are dog-friendly sunscreens, which are great for spending long time in the sun (such as on the beach). There are also many clothing pieces for dogs that can protect him from the harmful sun rays and we have chosen a few of our favorites for you.
