I don't know the brand his coat is… I bought it at a specialty pet store, and I've never seen another one like it. But I LOVE the way it is made. It is SO easy to get on and off, and even though it has a velcro close, since the close is on the top of the back, over the rest of the material, it can't catch in his hair. It also stays very stable without slipping, even without it being very tight. The only thing that's not perfect is that like most off0the-rack dog clothing, it's a wee bit short in the back for him. The next size ups as too long, and WAY too big in the body.

Plus that purple is a REALLY good colour on him!!

Karen, very nice looking coat and Tracy is right about the color for Kodi! Thanks for the pictures. I will look for something similar.

Rita, Thanks….2 weeks isn’t bad at all. I actually want a sweater for my Vizsla-Roxxy. Since its starting to get cold, lately she seems to always have a cold nose and ears. I figure one of these sweater will keep her nice and toasty

I actually got happy about Kodi’s coat too. Canela also has long hair so I have to find a good hassle-free coat to keep the cold out and keep her dry. Oh well I’ll keep looking ….

The Hurrta coats have a very similar design to Karen's coat, except they fasten with a clip instead of Velcro. The inside is fleece though (If I recall correctly). Very easy to put on.

I only use it when it's REALLY cold. Most of the time, he's fine without.

Do you guys think the Hurrta overalls would work to keep Leo dryer? I really need some way to keep Leo's fur dryer than it would be without any kind of covering. His fur soaks up water like a sponge and when I have him at work with me there is no choice but to walk him a couple times each day. Whatever I get for him needs to allow him to potty but also to keep him reasonably dry. We don't typically get much snow, just a few inches each year, but we get cold rain and some ice. I think little Leo will get quite chilled if I can't figure out a way to keep him dryer.

Betty, if you order a sweater from Royal Fifi, just ask Chantal how long she thinks it will take. It depends how backed up she is since they are each hand made. She is in Hungary, so the shipping itself takes about a week.

Yeah, I liked the look of the Hurta, but I'm pretty sure the fleece inside would mat him.

Brady’s Mom, Thanks for the advice. I sent an email – she’s quick – I already got a reply back! You were right, they are working on orders and the earliest she will get to my order would be around 21 November.
