Anyone have trick of the trade to help keep your dog dry and warm during those cold cold mornings?

I use the neoprene vest. I've also heard of feeding the dog bacon. It's supposed to make their fur extra oilly?

if it's a Lab don't worry about it getting cold. I've hunted in 12 degree weather with mine and she was perfectly fine and didn't seem to stop her from diving in and breaking ice :thumbsup: and when she came out she would freeze but still she was fine.... Labs can withstand very very cold weather. the Neoprene is a good thing to have. :thumbsup:

I agree with jager had some 10 degree weather last season. My dog was just fine. I used to use a neoprene vest seems to me my dog seems to shake more when he wears it so I quite using it.
