    So I seem to have to have a dog wardrobe now too.

    She had a lot of fur during June/July, but it needed to come off (got too many seeds and stuff in it and combing it out did not work any more) and maybe the shorter fur does not give her enough comfortable temperatur.
    She accepts the coat, never wriggles it off.

    Schubert was tough with eating and cold and exercise and being outside.
    Marley much much more sensitive to EVERYTHING.

    I found you can buy the coats online if you cannot find them in a shop near you: Prestige Cosy Fleece Dog Vests - Dog Coats and Dog Jumpers - Oz Pet Shop

    And that's not a bad price, but I didn't check what they charge for postage.

    yes I found the coats
    Also found a local lady making coats and I got a "nitie" now.
    I think it is the low body mass.
    Water - wind - chill.... she trembles.
    and she is always ready for the coat!

    It's so cute when they get excited about putting on their coat! My old dog loved hers too and sat down eagerly for me to put it on her when I showed it to her.

    I have a dog who shivers. She has a naturally very short coat, so she really feels the cold. However she gives me stinkeye if I try to rug her up. I stick a hot water bottle under her bedding, stuff her into the bed with me (she protests at firsts then sleeps eventually!), or cover her up with a blanket that she burrows into anyway. I find she's worse on early mornings, especially now she's getting on in years, but once we get outside for some exercise, she warms up. If the sun isn't out and she's standing still, she gets cold.


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...

    My munchkin has his coat on most of the time inside in winter, the only time I take it off is if the fire is going or if I bring out a blanket and he snuggles with me on the couch.
