Default Winter Coat troubles

I got Sophie a winter coat, but it's too small I was just wondering if anyone could recommend me a winter coat, preferably one that doubles as a harnes??



Sophie also wanted to show off her new collar/leash set (she gets walked with a harness, but since we only went outside for pics, I didn't feel like fighting her for an hour) Speaking of which, how do I get her used to wearing a harness/clothing??

I have had little dogs for many years, I also live in Canada which equals to brrrr!
So I've tried numerous coats throughout the years and know only a couple that
are absolutely brilliant, warm, waterproof and windproof. Give me Sophie's girth
and neck measurements, and her weight, and I'll give you a suggestion or two.


Just to add, if you invest into a good quality coat this year, you won't need to
buy one next year or the year after that. The ones I love survived through many
winters, and frequent washes. I rather buy ONE good coat, then have 5 that are
falling apart or not serving the meant purpose. In the long run my way is
cheaper imo.

That coat is so cute, sorry to hear it didn't fit. Can't exchange it for a larger size? Maybe you can sell it to at least get some money towards the next coat.

I have a Hurtta coat for Rocky. They are the best coats I know of. They are warm, waterproof, windproof and have reflective parts on them. But the offside is, they are quite expensive.

I have one for sale at the moment as I bought the wrong size for Rocky (he is quite big so needed a size up).
