And what breed/s is/are it/they?

I have a greyhound, and he has a housecoat, a lightweight mac, and a fleece lined waterproof coat. He also has a woolly snood for when it's really cold!

None - he's quite furry enough!

He does have a couple of bandanas which he likes to wear on special occasions...he also has a hi-vis/reflective bandana which he wears when we are out running in the dark mornings.

I bought my little dog a bright yellow coat the first winter we had him. When we went for a regular walk, all my friends' dogs freaked and tried to eat him, so it went in the bin! grin

My chihuahua has two jumpers, a lightweight fleece hoody, a dress! A winter coat and two fleece hoodies!!

I too have a spaniel who laughs in the face of cold/wet/snow and then proceeds to pond dive whatever the weather. But I did buy him a bomber jacket from Amazon last year. The pic might be on my profile. He was not impressed. It won't fit him this year sad

Mine has Equafleece jumpers too, toboldlygo and they are indeed fab!

She is a PRT but has rather scraggly, thinnish fur which doesn't keep her at all warm in winter - we get a lot of snow here, and temps way below 0°.

SpicyDog has a Hurtta insulated raincoat for sub zero and snow days. She hates it almost as much as she hates the snow and people laugh at her in it sad.

Fleecy rainbow housecoat that DH hates.
RGT walking out coat in bright red.

Do very cool house collars count? I also bought a very nice brown bridle leather lead and sighthound collar; I use it more often than I use the car so I figured I'd get a nice one.

He's an ex racer, whose former life has taken its toll on his bones. He needs to keep warm so his joints don't seize up! That's my excuse anyway.

Oh, but it's beautiful!

Clever dog.

Norbert, I think you've met LittleDog grin

lady dog has a fabulous diamante collar for special occasions; boy dog has a large dark blue velvet bowtie on elastic.

They both have their own magnificent, rippling black coats that make them look like they're sporting those enormous Dennis Basso faux fur jackets on QVC, complete with speckly ermine spots underneath, so no need for extra outerwear.

I don't have a dog but I had to add that the only dog in clothes that I've ever seen and thought was OK was a tiny little dog (not sure of breed but small, weak looking thing) in a black T-shirt with 'SECURITY' emblazoned across the back.


I nearly fell over laughing

FredWorms Fri 28-Sep-12 16:05:09

youveCat, wtf is that on your dog's head?

It looks like a hideous growth.

D0oinMeCleanin Fri 28-Sep-12 14:03:17

Whiggy is tiny and totally fat free envy with a very, very fine, sleek coat. Sighthounds don't do cold.

My terrier is half bald due to a previous skin condition, however regular combing and his nice new shampoo seem to be encouraging his coat to grow thicker, so maybe this winter he won't shiver so much and he won't need a coat.

My Spaniel has a coat of Burrs and Sticky Weed (pic on profile)

SarahStratton Fri 28-Sep-12 13:46:18

None. They are dogs. They descended from wolves, they can survive the odd chill!

Try telling that to LittleDog. Would you seriously take a dog with no fur worth mentioning outside in the winter? It would be as cruel as taking a child out in vest and pants.

Giddypants Fri 28-Sep-12 13:18:40

None I have a Heinz 57, hounds crossed with terriers and a Doberman! Reasonably hairy (sheds) and a nice layer of insulation, (not over weight) thing is he point blank refuses to go out for a walk if its cold or wet! Really hates getting his paws wet and if its windy he just refuses to walk. Really placid dog, even good at the vets (he licked her when she was poking around his broken toe!)
Likes the warmth will lay under the radiator/fire or in the smallest slither of sun!
He's a sweety grin

FredWorms Fri 28-Sep-12 13:16:43

There's a guy 'round here who dresses his terriers in baseball caps with an elastic band that goes under the jaw/neck. It's just thick and cruel.

Bandanas are borderline too imo.

My two Jack Russells are far too hard for clothes. Well, Wilma is hard but Fred is a great big poofter sensitive little soul who might quite like a nice jacket.

nooka Fri 28-Sep-12 07:45:50

No clothes for my dog. I don't think he'd be very impressed! But then he does like to lie out in the snow in the winter so I'm fairly confident he is warm (he's smooth coated, but with a waterproof outer layer and a very fine inner layer of fur). My great aunt had whippets with winter coats, but they were really like horse blankets rather than clothes.

We do have a special night time collar that dh calls his 'disco lights' - it has a LED cord that flashes clockwise around it's length.

Me too other, I even cringe at Build A Bear bears wearing clothes.

BUT if the dog is naked or has very thin skin and fur then it can be excused. If your dog has to wear clothes then you may aswell make them seasonal ones!

SarahStratton Thu 27-Sep-12 22:02:11

Thin skinned/inadequately furred dogs, particularly small ones, find it difficult to keep warm. That's why LittleDog wears clothes.

Otheregos Thu 27-Sep-12 21:51:02

Personally I hate to see dogs in clothes I just don't get it, a fleecy coat perhaps but not t shirts or Santa outfits

toboldlygo Thu 27-Sep-12 20:39:01

Mine have an Equafleece jumper each, in serviceable black, for drying them off after racing. Couldn't recommend them more, the fabric wicks away the wet and they are quickly dry and warm underneath.
