Coats and boots

Hello, I live in Minnesota and Old Man Winter will soon be breathing down our necks. I'm wondering about getting Ella a coat and maybe even some boots. She has a sweater she loves but I'm thinking she will need more protection this winter. Does anyone have any reccomendations? What are your thoughts on boots?

I think a warm coat is a good idea. Sometimes it is so cold that I put a coat over a sweater to keep Molly warm enough. I have tried several types of boots and socks for snowy days. They never stay on! One thing I have not tried that people seem to like is the Pawz rubber booties. They just seem like they would be hard to get on and off.

I love the "Great White North" coat by Chilly Dogs. They come in many, many sizes so you can get the perfect fit. I know many of the members here on the forum have these coats and love them too.

Here is the website:

Chilly Dogs

In the winter months, I put the coat on first and then adjust my harness to be a little bigger and fit over the coat. For super cold days, I have even put a sweater under the coat.... though it was probably not necessary. The coat seems to provide a lot of warmth and the website states it is recommended for temperatures as cold as -22F.

Also based in MN! Who did you get Miss Ella from?

Mario has never needed anything other than a sweater and booties, even in a puppy cut, but he is a big boy so he has a bit more substance to him. Nino is hardy, but he is smaller, so I am thinking I will get him a coat for the winter. He was fine with nothing during the March weather, but he has never endured a MN January, so I've been looking around. If anyone has a suggestion that causes minimal tangling on a full coat, that would be appreciated.

Sophie, Nino, and Brisket (Mario too!)

Regarding boots...all the balloon looking booties we sell I could not get on my lollipops feet. And someone else I know returned a set for the same reason. To keep booties on I have better luck with the kind with the Velcro straps around the top of their foot because you can get it pretty tight usually also if you don't have that hair tie bands have done the trick for me in the past as well. Just have to make sure you're not cutting off the circulation in their foot of course. I have a dog who loved to run in the snow. I would have to put her boots on three or four times. But it's still better than nothing.
On coats and sweaters. They have a Nice is a breed that was established in the much warmer climates so I think coats and sweaters are very appropriate. But I am not an expert just an overprotective mama.

Thank you so much....I think I'm going to try the PAWZ. The Chilly Dog coat is exactually what I want but will wait 'til next winter when I know she's done growing. It's a little pricey for only a few monthes or even weeks.....PAWZ had one for not so much also Goopy dog that may work while she's little. Kar Mar.... I bought Ella from a breeder in Motley. I'm really not sure they were top notch....probably more of a commercial breeder. That said, they allowed me to come see the parents, and where they were kept etc. They have been helpful when I've asked questions. They privided a good return policy (can't attest to whether or not they will stand by it if the need arrises). They are not showing their dogs or anything like that. We paid a mid range price for her. I know better questions to ask now.....but so far so good.....

I think I'll look into the coat for Rudy. What size did you get?

Hi there, I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question.....if it's not I'm sorry. I am kinda new....
So, here goes..... I would like advise on flooring for my home. We have two Havanese and our current flooring is a beautiful laminate by Mannington. We love it, but...... we have many areas where the floor has swelled. I know my two havanese have had some minor accidents but they were cleaned up immediately and still the floor swelled. One swelling was due to vomit after surgery, but again it was cleaned immediately. We contacted Manningtonot and the dealer we bought the $7000.00 worth of flooring and both said tough luck....
So here we are trying to decide what we do now. We don't care for tile, or carpet. Hardwood is pricey.... We are wondering if anyone has ever had good luck with another laminate brand?
Thanks in advance for the help.
