Our dog Rudy likes to walk, but he hates winter and being cold.  That's why we bought him a couple of dog coats.  He also has a sweater that he wears sometimes.  Dog coats have come a long way and fit much better than they used to.  Basset hounds actually don't mind having a coat on, because they are such wimps with bad weather.  The newer coats are easy to put on them as well.  Some velcro straps and your are done.

 

Just beware of the coats that  go too far back on the underside if you have a male basset hound.  We learned that the hard way and found that they will pee all over them! Ha!

Coats are also a fashion statement as I am sure you are aware. It is fun to dress them up , especially for Halloween!
