with winter coming,and no sign of the snow disapearing.can anyone recomend a good waterproof coat,that will keep them warm,she gets all excited (rolling in the snow )and runs around like a mad yoke and then starts to feel the cold after 5-10 mins,shivering.

I think one that goes under her belly would be a good idea as she hasnt got much hair underneath to keep her warm.

was looking around and saw theese

Hiya try Googling - Dormer Craft dog coats :)) They are great, waterproof but not padded. They have legs and cover almost all the underneath too, apart from the essential toilet areas :)

I don't do dog clothes usually and mine look cute wearing these!! I used to use a top covering coat but the difference in dryness and cleanliness with them wearing these is great!! Also less "Baubles of snow" too!!

They look lovely, I was thinking of ordering two last week, but there is a note on the bottom of the listing about delays, so I came across these by Danish Design and ordered them instead

They haven't arrived yet, so I can't comment on how good they are.

My dog coats have finally arrived and I'm very pleased with them, can't wait to put them on the dogs and go for a walk. They are waterproof, very snug and warm and have reflective markings on them. The only thing that bothers me is that I'm going to have to cut a hole in them to allow the lead be attached to their harnesses. :( I'm sure I'll make a mess of this!
The only other comment I'd make is that they are quite snug fitting - there is a velcro band that goes under the tummy and fastens on the back. If the dog is anyway overweight it might be a bit of a squeeze :rolleyes:

What size did you get? Both Belle and Bob are on the plumper side of the cavalier size.

The size I got is 35cms. You measure from the base of the neck to where the tail starts.
I just measured Trapper to see how wide he so you can compare - he is 51cms at his widest part!
I also discovered that there is a small slit for the harness hoop, (hidden behind the collar) so I didn't need to get the scissors out. Whew!

Don't worry there is a small opening hidden under the collar.
