    Gitdog wants a coat. Update with pics.

    Gitdog wants a coat. Update with pics. 26th Nov 17 at 1:13 PM
    Never bothered with dog coats before - had a waxed one for my last but she refused to walk with it on so the coat was rehomed.
    However Gitdog is a sensitive little soul (when it comes to cold, if not for anything else) and is currently doing his best hypothermic pooch impression. And that's before we set foot out of doors....

    I don't want to spend lots in case he hates it, but am wondering whether to just get an equafleece type thing or something a little more weather resistant.
    He will model the final choice for your delectation in due course.
    Any suggestions?

    We're cheapskates: Gitdog is more a B&M sort of dog.

    In fact, I really do think we're overdue an update of Gitdog's recent adventures.

    I'm late seeing this post, but I can really recommend Equafleece dog coats, I am on my 3rd one now, 1 he has grown out of and I have 2 that fit him. They do keep the dogs dry and warm, wash up very well, I can wash one out after a wet/muddy walk, put it on/by a radiator and it's dry for the next walk.
    The customer service is brilliant as well, if you have any problems give them a call and they will do all they can to help.
    Treat other's how you like to be treated.

    He's not entirely enthused, bless him. but I think that's more because he thought that he was about to get dragged out in the cold.



    Not the greatest fit, but we think the next size down will be too small. It'll do to keep him warm, the big wuss.

    Plus a gratuitous Christmas pudding outfit. Because if you can't embarrass your Gitdog at Christmas, then when can you?

    At least Gitdog sits there and lets you photograph him, even if he's not happy about it. Sometimes I think mine has a camera allergy
