Hi everyone,I,m new to the forum,i love coming here to read and spend time.I have bought my first chi and would like to ask a question please. When i put a jumper on my boy ,i can tell he dosen,t like wearing them,he slides up against the furniture trying to get it off. He does it for a little while, my question is do chi,s have to wear a jumper in the cold weather? I want to keep him warm of course,i need to know if it is nesesary or just something us mummy,s like to do,I dont want him to get sick, thanks for reading .Regards Charchie and mummy.xx

They don't have to but it's always a good idea as they are extremely sensitive to cold weather. We are thinking about getting a rain coat for Ember and maybe a jacket for next winter, but since it's nearly summer not right now, focused more on a raincoat.

I definately say it's a good idea to have a jacket and a raincoat but again you don't have to have him wear a jumper.

They get used to things really quick, when we bought Ember a dress she hated it, but after a while of wearing clothes she got used to it.

A coat isn't always necessary. Angel has some almost bare spots on his body, so he is always cold and wears a sweater most of the time. The other day was unusually warm, 80 degree Farenheit, so I took him out of the sweater. I never realized just how bare he really is!! Poor thing. Not much fur at all on the underside!!

My last chi was long hair and I put a sweater on him in winter because the snow would stick to his fur and it was difficult to clean off!

Thanks,everyone.I will continue to use them i have a feeling it,s the wool made coats he dosen,t like, even though i use a softner in them when i wash them. I,ll switch to the fleecy type for him .Might be more cosy. thankyou again Ozziegirl.
