SNOW BALL

I grew up with Maltese and they loved the snow! Would come in with snow all over them. It is too much fun for them to stop them Take a picture I would love to see the snow ball. I would think they would get cold.

A snowsuit! I wouldn't spend a lot on this year's since he's so young and it won't fit him next year. There are several threads about snow suits - or you can google snowsuits for dogs and come up with many different vendors. Get one with 4 legs in in that covers all of his tummy EXCEPT his privates!

Otherwise - it's room temp water to melt them and a hairdryer to get him dry. The problem is....he will want to go right back out as soon as he's warm! LOL

SNOWBALLS???? What like this?

I got these snowsuits from Petco last winter. They are currently getting altered. I am having the elastic replaced with a more spandex ribbed fabric. The cuffs on these suits were more of a cotton material and would stretch when wet.

Some members went with The Bark and Stuff snowsuit. They are nice, but were too tight on my guys fat bodies Poochini also makes a nice snowsuit.

Last year at Petco. It came in red and black. It's the same one as the one above it. I added the snaps, because I'm not a fan of velcro.

Here it is. They call it a rainsuit, but it's warm and quilted for snow.

gggrrrrrr. I found it at Petsco; of course there are none in Canada, and looking up the full product name, it doesn't look like any place else up here even carries it.
