I might have to check into her stuff. I bought two little coats for Quincy recently and they both seem to be too short. I'm going to keep them because they do cover some of his back and his chest, but I wonder if he's just long for a hav? I bought the 12" and it fits everywhere else just fine except the length. I don't want to go up to a medium because then the chest, etc. will be too big.

See how short this is?

Yeah, that was my problem! So I searched until I found Chantal. This is just her side business. She has a full time job, but works endless hours! If you measure correctly, her stuff will fit perfectly. You need to measure from the BASE of the neck to the tail. When you measure the chest and neck, do not measure too tightly. Just measure it comfortably. She will make everything to the EXACT measurements you tell her. I always measure a few times to be safe!

No I think this is normal. Havanese seem to need a one size in the waist and then a longer size for the lenght. I wonder what wiener dogs wear? I would not be surprised if that would fit a Hav.

They have a special cut for Weiner dogs. Scudder can wear that cut because he has shorter legs. This isn't a good picture but Scudder is wearing a Weiner dog coat here!

I keep on begging my 15 yr old to knit a long seater for Nina. I have a good feel for how it needs to be made but I might just opt for something in fleece. I am not big on knitting or crocheting any more.

A place I found that I really LOVE for custom measured coats

It's website is www.bubcoats.com

Why I really recommend them is:

You measure and get whatever exact size your fur baby needs.

The coats follow your pup's shape, do not bulk, and are form fitting which helps prevent matting. They allow complete freedom of movement for running, rolling, etc and don't need any adjustments for when they need to pee/poop.

They WILL (if specifically asked) put in for you -a special button hole-like slit that easily accommodates your harness (I don't trust leash rings as much) And I like the look better with the harness UNDER the coat.

They utilize the same kind of buckles that lupine and other quality collars use- to close up their coats instead of Velcro or snaps. It takes only about 6 seconds to put on or off. :-)

Your pups underbelly area is all covered-I don't understand coats that leave this area unprotected. (It's cold here in Chicago!)

They are inexpensive, machine washable, made in America and they donate to shelters! -i love how their coats are made: the insides of their winter coats are soft fleece and the outsides are totally water repellent. Their plain fleece ones without the shell are real thick, soft, double fleece.

These, I think, are coats for people that care more about super practical -than super cute. (I've found in my search, much cuter coats, but none with these specs.

Here's a picture of 22 week old now, Emery, in his one of his coats.
