Pekingese Question

Is a coat right for a Peke? And boots, are there boots that are good for a Peke?

If I put a coat on my Peke, does it spoil it's ability to keep himself warm by matting down his fur? When he gets real wet is hard to get him dry. And during winter's snow, there is so many places that salt, it seems to bother his feet more than snow. Sometimes he gets little ice balls between his pads.

I would not get a coat for your dog. The Pekingese's fur needs to be able to breathe or matting and other fur problems can occur. Booties would be a good thing for your dog in winter to keep his paws safe.
