Rather than keeping Chaos in his crate all day during cold weather, I've thought about getting him a "winter coat" so he could be left outside while I'm at work. Cold weather is defined as 30 - 40 degress F for the day's high temperature. Anything colder, he'd stay indoors in the crate…brrrrrrr!
My first thought was - not a good idea...he'll manage to choke himself on it, rip it off, shread it, eat it, etc. Chaos will be four years old this week and is rather laid back for a basenji, so perhaps he's past all the crazy stuff.
My question is - are any of your basenjis outside all day during the winter, unsupervised, wearing a coat?
Thanks in advance for any comments and advice!
