Small Dog Onesie

Does anyone have any recommendations for a waterproof dog onesie? I’m fed up of having to bath our boy after every wet walk as his tummy is so filthy! He’s a long haired chihuahua, quite long backed and doesn’t generally like wearing coats but will tolerate a stretchy jumper, so something with a bit of stretch would be good. Any ideas?

We've got a 'hotter dog' fleece jumper and it's the best thing ever. Much better than the hundreds of coats I've bought. I think it's the same brand as equafleece.

Aw your dog is so cute. I’ll have a look at that brand, thank you. I need as much fur covered as possible, he is a dirt magnet.

Equafleece. They're not cheap but keep dogs warm and dry and last for ever

You can get equafleece/hotter dog jumpers with back legs too. I just wipe my dogs back legs and front paws with a wet facecloth now whereas before it was a massive job every time.

My dog has equafleece all in ones for the winter , it helps massively and they wash and dry really well ( non bio only )

I have just tried to order one of these and it says my measurements are strange so I have had to message the company 😂

You're supposed to measure your dog Pookie winkgrin

PookieDo Wed 02-Oct-19 11:07:33

I did
But it didn’t like the measurements I provided

Here are my 2 wearing their winter jumpers!

They just email you with their recommended size. I did it twice. Dog is small but stocky. I’m excited for it to arrive now!

Ah cute!

My dog also has funny measurements so didn't fit their automatic sizing guide. If you don't hear, call Equafleece - they are really helpful. They will send you the one most likely to fit and if it doesn't they'll take it back and try again. My dog is a staffie cross and her chest measurements etc go with a dog with a longer back than her so it took some figuring out that her coats needed to be 2 inches shorter in (back)length than the average staffie.

I was teasing smile

Honestly they're brilliant. And stretchy so they're forgiving and not difficult to get over your dogs head. They're the only coat mine will wear happily - he sort of forgets he's wearing it

@MeanLaQueefer my dog will move into the equafleece fleece in a while, but it's too hot for him at the moment, he is currently sporting their summer suit which kept him clean last weekend

Thanks everyone, loving all the gorgeous dog pics. I will be ordering tomorrow. If only I could get him to wear some of those little dog boots too, we could cut down on the baths!
I love that summer suit @Kayjay2018, he doesn’t actually seem to feel the cold too much so I think I’ll get one of those too.

Got mine today! I got a full suit
I’m worried about him getting too hot in it though? Is this an issue?

PookieDo Thu 03-Oct-19 19:45:03

Here he is

Kayjay2018 Thu 03-Oct-19 20:46:00

@PookieDo our Doberman will go in hers when temps are about 7 degrees Celsius, our longer haired rescue, will be a bit further into the colder weather than now. We just know the Doberman starts shaking with cold at that temp, so depends if your little one feels the cold.

Kayjay2018 Thu 03-Oct-19 20:47:03

@PookieDo ps. He looks adorable in it!

PookieDo Thu 03-Oct-19 21:24:29

His harness won’t do up over it!

Kayjay2018 Thu 03-Oct-19 21:39:50

@PookieDo do the straps not loosen a bit? Here's the boy dog with his harness over the top, I do have to tweak the harness according to what he has underneath

He looks so cute!
