Hurtta Dog Coats

If you use a Hurtta dog coat for the colder weather, which is or are your favorites? I see they have overalls that can prevent snowballs and/or the coat from getting drenched but some aren't waterproof....some that are waterproof but not lined. I'm not sure what to order for my guy. I want him warm and dry. Any feedback on what you've used and liked or disliked would be appreciated.

**Edited to add that if there is some other brand that you just love that helps with snowballs and wet undercarriage and legs...let me know. My Papillon uses a Chilly Dogs Great White North coat but is so wet underneath on his legs that he gets really cold. I think it probably would be similiar if not worse with my Havanese with his longer coat.**

The winter coats are pretty much the same as the Chilly Dogs GWN coat. I have both. I also have the fleece jacket and the overalls in fleece and waterproof material. The overalls are nice but just a shell. They are hard to fit though.... Fred is a perfect size so the overalls fit him well. The fleece overall is really nice but I'm not sure if it's 100% waterproof. In the deep snow my guys wear the waterproof overalls with pawz boots. They stay dry with that combo I don't have the new slush suit so I can't comment on that.

Hope this helps!

Linda, What size are Bella, Fred and Scudders Hurtta overalls? We just moved to Alaska and we just had our first snow. I want to order the overall but not sure what size to get because Vino has so much hair. Today, Vino and Canela were cover in snowballs - they need these overalls badly!! Esp since this snow is going to last till next April. I'm looking around for other coats but for quick potty breaks I think these might good. Vino LOVES the snow, he runs around like a snow bunny - hopping all over the place.

I was told by a vendor that she thought my Havanese (with his measurements) would wear a 14S best but I'm kind of afraid to order anything and have to return it. I wish I had a local vendor around here but I don't.

The overall are super tricky. It really depends on back length, chest girth and leg length. Bella is so tiny and only 7 pounds. She wears a size 301 in the fleece overalls. The legs are too long so I have to roll them up. Fred wears a 13s and it fits him perfectly. His back length is 13, chest girth is 19" and has super long legs. Scudder wears the 381, but the legs are too short. The length is ok, but the legs stop half way down his legs! If you go to Euro Dog Designs website, she sells hurtta and can help you with the fit.

She is the one who told me she thinks Javi according to my measurements would fit best in a 14s. Maybe I will give that a try. I have been hesitant because I'm afraid it won't fit and I'm not sure about returns. Thank you so much for your help.

Thanks for sizing info - it help! Vino has about the same measurements (Back13, Girth18 and Leg5.5) as Fred but looking her website and another website, it seems like they no longer carry 13S. So I'll probably get a 14S plus he has so much hair it might work better. I did send an email to Euro Dog Design, I'll see what she suggests.

She is really good about emailing back promptly. I still haven't ordered but plan too soon. She suggested I order a fleece overall and the slush combat suit for my dog. That is a lot of money! But if it worked and since he shouldn't get that much bigger I might do it in prep for winter since I really want to keep him in a long coat but hate to have to dry him each time we go out.

I thought about fleece overalls but not sure if want those. I know I am going to get the slush suits (just need to decide on the size) Esp with Vino’s long hair and he loves the snow - once he’s outside, he won’t sit still - he hops all over the place, he rolls in it, buries himself under the snow, literally just stick his face in the snow. we had our first snow this week and both him and Canela were cover in snowballs. it takes about 10-15 mins to melt all the snow away. I been using a hot/warm towel. I probably need to use the blow dryer. Either its a hassle - that why I need these slush suits. I don’t remember them in past “winters” having so much snow stick to them - thats why I never got a snowsuit for them but they definitely need it in Alaska; plus this snow isn’t going away till next April. right now they just using regular jackets and sweaters but they will need more coverage for this winter. I plan to buy Neo-Paws for them and for the two Vizslas.
