Need advices on first sweater and coat

This is Precious' first Christmas. We live in Dallas, TX, so we won't be very cold. I plan to keep her fur long for the winter. We do have heater on at home, I am really not sure she needs a sweater or not in TX winter. When she is outside about 40s F, she did her potty quick and ran back. We might get down to 30s some day, but if she does her potty quick enough, she probably won't need a coat just for potty use. Unless I plan to take her out for a walk, which I really doubt I will do.

But as a first dog mom, I just gotta spend some money on Precious. I am not sure Precious will like to have anything on her except her fur. If I want to give her a sweater, what is a good kind of first sweater type? I am afraid the type with yarn won't last too long if Precious decides to chew it out of her body.

Any advice and suggestion will be much appreciated. Thank you!

I live in Oklahoma, which weather-wise is similar to Northern Texas. I'm a first time dog owner also. Anyway, I just went to Petsmart and bought her a medium reversible jacket. Once she got used to wearing it, she seemed fine with it. Linda and several other people on this forum are very good at scoping out places online to buy items for the fur babies.

Donnie, Momo and Ume's mom and loving it!

Here is the place I use. If you mention the havanese forum, she might give you special pricing. Her stuff is amazing and fits so well. If you go to Petsmart or a place like that, the sweater will often times be too short for our longer Hav's. Her prices are comparable to what you would pay at Petsmart and she offers free shipping. All her sweaters and hand made. She is working on 4 for me right now. He is the pic of the sweater I ordered and the colors it comes in. I ordered 2 in light green, 1 raspberry a a red.

Linda, is it Royalfifi or another site? I did go to the site after seeing what cute thing you get. Chantal suggested me to get a sweater when Precious is full grown. I think when I wait till then, it will be warm. I think I will wait a little bit, since TX is still not that cold yet, then I will know do I really need to get Precious something. I do notice that Precious is now 14" long, but not as wide as the standard measurement sweater. I especially like the salmon pink. Thank you so much.

Linda, may I know what is the name of the sweater and under what category? There are too many under the sweater. Thanks!

Does sweater mess up your pups' fur? Like static problem? Thank you.

The sweater is called JAZZI:

I also have the Danny & Classic cable. I like them all. These and the Jazzi are under her "classic sweater" category.

My guys are older 7,6,5. They are also in puppy cuts. I don't have a problem with matting or static. You also have to considering the blowing coat phase. When Scuds was blowing coat, even in a puppy cut, he would matt like crazy. If I put anything on him, his entire back would be covered in matts. He had a cold winter that year

Mine have quite a few sweaters and coats from Chantal as well. Here are some of our favorites. Cassie is in a longer coat, but I don't keep the sweaters on her for more than a few hours or so at a time. We have a few new ones on the way too
