Hi all!

I'm a new owner of a 20 wk old chi named Guinness. He is quite small - weighing in at about 3lbs. Anyhow, I live in Ontario where we get some pretty cold weather as well as snow. I need to get Guinness something for winter that will keep him warm when he goes outside to do his business. I have a coat but it doesn't cut high enough and he pee's on the bottom part of the jacket when he squats (he doesn't lift his leg yet - if he ever will, I don't know.)

Anyone have a suggestion of a good warm brand of jacket that is cut high enough under the belly so he doesn't pee on it?

i so no how you feel my boy Clarince has the same problem , i haven't found a coat yet that he cant wee on so i made some myself with the belly bands higher up , you could try making your own out of an old tracksuit sleeve .

try different jacket/sweaters on at the pet shops all of the jackets I have for Ninja he never pees on I got some online some at the center booths at the malls in toronto he lifts his leg though I remember when he was younger he would pee on his sweaters I would safety pin that part up a bit more

Hmm - that's a good idea. What about making it weather proof? For example, if it's snowing, he's going to get wet quite quickly. I suppose I could try and make something. I just thought I'd ask if anyone had found something suitable for their chi.

All you have to do is cut the underside and resew it so it's shorter... Or like mentioned above... Safety pin it up.
