I don't live where it snows or freezes, but when we are traveling I only take coats for situations when the dogs are going to be outside for long periods of time. For a potty trip, no. For a romp in the snow, no. If they were going to play outside for a while, yes.
Nathan (Talemaker Havanese) had some interesting comments on his site on this last year. I don't know if it is still there though. He definitely lives in a snowing/freezing area.
