Does My Golden Retriever Need a Coat? (Goldens in Winter)

Golden retrievers have big furry coats that help keep them warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  However, even their coats can’t protect them from really frigid temperatures.  So, should your Golden retriever wear a coat when the weather turns cold?

Golden retrievers need to wear a coat anytime it’s below 45° F ( 7.2° C) if they show signs that they are cold. If the temperature is below 20° F (-6.7° C), they should remain indoors.

Golden retrievers can withstand a wide range of temperatures, but they are most comfortable when the weather is between 45 °F to 90 °F (7.2° C to 32.2° C).
