Where did you get (I'm in the states)? I'm hopeful online???

Re: What do you do with you Vizsla in the Winter?

redrover- Yes the lands end coats are quite cheaper than the chilly dogs coat, Axel just turned 12 months old so I was also worried about investing money into something he may grow out of soon.

Well at least you can knit, should save you some money. I used to live in Thunder Bay, and I remember the cold winters in the North.

Re: What do you do with you Vizsla in the Winter?

Just ordered a quilted pet coat from Land's End for Jasper, the spoiled dog. He's getting the bright yellow one! I was going to get a Chilly Dogs coat, but he's still growing and I didn't really want to spend quite that much money in case he doesn't grow to the size I'm anticipating.

His first real winter in Minnesota should be interesting. I can't decide if he's going to need boots or not...going to get some musher's secret, though! I'll be knitting him an ear muff too, as soon as I finish a hat for my own ears!

being a smooth/wire haired cross, I don't think Ruby will need one, even though we've had quite cold winters here in the uk for the last couple of years.

Re: What do you do with you Vizsla in the Winter?

Just ordered the sweater (skull cross bones) from chilly dogs. (for cold days) Was wondering what options would be good for our dog for rainy days as we live in Seattle and as you know it rains frequently. Looks like the teckelklub coat, chillydogs rain slicker, and the lands end squall jacket are all good options, our dog Axel does wear a harness most days so the jacket should fit in accordance with that. Just curious to see what most people use for their dogs? If any? Thanks

Great link. Thank you.

I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We can get quite a bit of snow here but I haven't had to use coats too often on Phoebe. When it's very cold we will usually do a much shorter walk and I keep an eye on her thigh muscles. When they are quivery then she is too cold and we head home quickly. Most times we are out in the winter we can find shelter from the wind in the forest and she keeps moving so much that she seems to be warm enough.

Fun link! I imagine with the wet snow we get in west Michigan those trips out should be even shorter, even though our temps seldom dip below the 20s.
