Does your small dog shiver on chilly days and nights?
Tiffany, a Yorkshire Terrier
weighs 7 lbs, girth is 14"
Fleece Pull-Over Size: Toy
Does he or she need to be under a blanket during the day and under the covers at night?
This is very typical of Teacup, Toy and Small breed dogs that live indoors with their human companions. A good rule of thumb is ... if you feel somewhat chilly, then it's a good
bet that your little buddy feels somewhat chilly as well. Take our 4 dogs, weighing 20 lbs., two at 7 lbs., and 5 1/2 lbs. The three Toys, (a Chinese Crested Hairless, a Chinese Crested Powder Puff and a Yorkshire Terrier), can always be found on any available "lap" or basking in a spot of sunshine beaming through a window.
Our dogs' quest for comfort and warmth is more than just a conditioned response to "pampered" living (and there is certainly nothing wrong with that). A dog's normal body temperature is 2-4 degrees higher than that of the human body so they can experience some discomfort when the temperature in their environment takes a dip. This is especially true of dogs with "thin" coats or Hairless breeds, such as our Chinese Crested.

Choosing the Proper Size
To determine the correct size for your dog please follow these simple directions while referring to the Sizing Chart above. Use the largest size listed where your dog's weight does not exceed the maximum weight listed, and where your dog's girth (inches around the ribcage) does not exceed the maximum girth for the size. You may also find it helpful to refer to the Breed Sizing section below, where we list typical breeds for each coat size.

We have designed the Fleece Dog Coat to ensure your dog's comfort and to allow a full range of activities.

We have done our field trials with several chilly and very willing pampered dogs and we can safely say that our Fleece Dog Coat will keep your dog warm and comfy. In fact, it is so comfortable that your dog will feel like he or she is wearing its own personal fleece blanket. We use only top quality, non-pilling fleece material that is not only machine washable (line drying recommended) but, more importantly, provides warmth without weight!
Vinny, a Wire Hair Dachshund
weighs 12 lbs, girth is 17"
Dog Coat Size: Small
Easy to Put On and Take Off
Our Fleece Dog Coat is so easy to put on that your dog will look forward to wearing it. Simply put the Fleece over the head, guide the front legs through the 2 holes provided and pull the Fleece back over your dog's body (thus ... Fleece "Pull-Over" Dog Coat).
Taking the Fleece Dog Coat off is even easier than putting it on. Simply grasp the back of the Fleece and pull forward and upward, in one motion. Your dog's front legs will easily move with this motion as the Fleece pulls completely off your dog. This action is very similar to taking a jersey off a child.

Dachshunds can pose a dilemma when trying to fit them for some garments; however, our Fleece Dog Coat sizing instructions will apply to them as well. Because of their extra length, your dog's Fleece Coat will cover slightly less of the dog's body toward the rear. This is not a problem because our Fleece Dog Coat is intended to warm your dog's chest area; where such major internal organs as the lungs and heart, are located.
