Default A question for long haired...

Hello

So we are having a debate about clothing. Some people are saying no you don't need to have clothes for your long haired and others are saying it doesn't matter if long or short you need.

As puppies I completely would think so yes, but what about after that age?

I still have jumpers for Archie for winter time. I don't want him to get dog flu. And got a waterproof when its torrential rain like it was this week!

Mine rarely go outside. They use washable pee pads.

Do you put sweaters or tshirts on them?

I guess I'm also trying to figure it out because I HATE the heat. My house is by no means freezing but it's not super hot either. Comes summer I run my air conditioner as much as needed.

We rarely use coats on ours. They each have one, for super really freezing days, but they wear them maybe a half dozen times a year. I'm not a fan of dressing my dogs, so they have one because they do need it sometimes. But I'm in BC, our winters don't get as cold as yours. They only wear them to go outside, never in the house...even hating the heat, I can't imagine your house gets cold enough that they would NEED them indoors? lol.

My long-haired Chi still gets cold in the winter, so she has a lot of outfits.

I think I'll just watch for the cues that they are cold vs being nervous etc.

When mine shiver they get dressed. Peanut, the LC, rarely shivers. The other two SC, have very thin coats and naked bellies. They need clothes even indoors. Piper is very thin and wears something almost all the time to prevent shivering. Something I've noticed that may be related, Peanut pants when it gets warm. The other 2 don't pant.
