Default Keeping Warm in the Winter

Hey everyone, me and Dan are loving this friendly little community so far. Lots of amazing pictures and really friendly people

We will be going to visit some of Dan's family this winter and I am pretty worried about how cold it will be! His family lives in rural Alberta where it gets really cold, so I will need something to go over my short fur! I heard that there are small dog parkas, something like that would be amazing. I also like looking fashionable, so it needs to be something that looks great on me while we go walking to the skate rink. We could order it online if someone knows of a good place to order them from

There are lots of parkas on line, I think. I would look into little booties too. You'd have to wear them before you really need them though. They are really hard to get used to. Also tell Dan that you are not a cold weather doggie! Watch ears for frost bite. Good luck. (tell Dan that carrying you in HIS parka would be ideal!)

Glad you like it Junior

I think you should buy a nice jacket (both in style and quality)
My Chi's wouldn't enjoy booties at all but maybe give it a try. Then again carrying you would be the best option.
Keep us updated

Good call on the booties, my feet already get pretty cold walking around here when its cold. We will be looking at those as well as a nice jacket, but I think me getting carried around inside his jacket is the best idea as well

Thanks for the tips everyone, I convinced Dan to get my some booties and a very nice parka, the booties have been useful walking around on the concrete and they look really nice as well so I am happy

I order from Doggie Couture Shop. They are awesome and their prices are really good when they have a sale going on which they do often. I like Hip Doggie, Wooflink, Puppy Angel, and Louis Dog best

Mine often wear a sweater AND a parka if it's really cold or snowing. There are so many places to buy online. I've bought from the really budget friendly stores on ebay direct from China, Korea, etc.. Occasionally the fit isn't right, so it is gifted to another chi. Only once did my order get lost. Only cost $2 so it wasn't a big deal. I made a balaclava without earholes to protect ears. They hate modeling it but don't mind it in a blizzard. lol
The best place is inside your parka, of course, once their business is done.
