6 Types of Dog Hats for Every Season

Don’t overlook the benefits of dog hats! In addition to being adorable, stylish, and occasionally goofy, dog hats can help your pup all year around. In the summer, cooling hats can help provide relief from the heat and shade your pup’s eyes from the sun. In the winter, a dog hat such as a beanie will keep your pup’s head warm and cozy during cold weather. They are especially beneficial for dog breeds with notoriously thin coats such as Italian Greyhounds or Whippets. 

What’s more, hats make fun, playful accessories that allow you to show off your (dog’s) personality and sense of style. The following are a few dog hat styles we’re sure you and your pooch will love!


How to Fit a Dog Hat Properly

Finding the right fit is key to ensuring a dog hat is comfortable and will stay in place. To determine the appropriate size you need to know the circumference of your dog’s head. Measure your dog’s head with a soft tape measure. Beginning on the top of the head, measure around your dog’s chin to find the circumference. Refer to the size guide on any Canada Pooch hat page to determine which option is best for your dog.

How Do You Get a Hat to Stay on a Dog’s Head?

To make sure your dog’s hat stays on their head, they must be  fitted correctly. Your dog’s ears should fit comfortably through the ear slits on the hat. If the hat is too small, the space between the ear slits will be too narrow to comfortably accommodate your dog’s ears. If the hat is too large, the ears may not fit all the way through the slits, causing it to fall off. If you have any questions about the fit of a hat your order, contact a Canada Pooch fit expert for assistance.
