Hello everyone I'm new here!!!!

Hi everyone! I am soo glad I came across this site. I had my Havanese for almost 7 months now and I cannot believe I didn't no about this forum. It is amazing how much information I learned in one day. Anywho, I wanted to ask if anyone has any recommendations on where to buy my little guy a jacket. I checked online but can't seem to find anything nice.

Any information will be appreciated
Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum, Ninja! Is that your pup's name? You might want to submit more photos - that way folks may be better able to better recommend appropriate jackets. I am just kidding about that part, but not about the part where we like to see photos! You have come to the right place for advice on jackets, car seats, bags, what have you. This is an enabling group!! I can't give you recommendations, as we don't have a lot of need for jackets in my part of the country, but am sure there are others with good suggestions.

Welcome to the forum. You are looking at the queen of dog coats. That's my thing. Everyone has a thing they are obsessed with right? I started a custom coat thread, you might want to look at. Just in case, here is the site. I just ordered Bella this new one and I bought these for the boys. They are not from the royal fifi sight. They are made by Hurtta and are the best winter coats I've come across.

I will definitely be putting up more pictures from when he was a puppy up until now..is 9 months still considered a puppy? lol some people told me it stops after 6 months but I just refuse to believe it. Thank you for the recommendations so far I am going to the websites right after I upload more photos.

Linda that Hurtta coat looks great! Where did you find that? I also wonder what size you bought and how heavy your model is? Sorry..I don't know which dog this is in the photo. Thank you!

Welcome. He's generally considered an adolescent. So beware,

Linda, what a sexy looking coat.

I don't want to hijack this thread, so I will answer this and if anyone has more questions, please PM me

I got the Hurtta coats here, http://www.muddypaws.co.uk/. They had the best price and lowest shipping. I can't say enough about this coat. It is high quality. It's like a North Face ski jacket! It covers all the important muscles, is very adjustable, and has leg straps. Here are Scudders sizes to give you an idea.
Height- 10"
Length (withers to tail) 14"
Chest girth- 18"

I got the 36cm coat. Hurtta recommended the 33cm for Havanese, but that would have been too short in length. If you have a tape measure with cm, that's the easiest way. Here is Fred in his jacket. He is 2 inches taller than Scuds and his chest is 19.5 inches and he is an inch shorter in length. They both weigh about 16 lbs, but are solid muscle from long hikes in the woods. Hope this helps!
