    Not sure why you even need to ask the question. If it's cold any dog will benefit from a vest. It doesn't matter how big, how strong or hard charging the dog is. There a post on this site about a...

    You and I are in a similar situation. Like you, I don't run my dogs in field trials or hunt tests (but each spent meaningful time with a trainer). They live in the house, go everywhere with me,...
