Our elderly JRT feels the cold and loves her jumpers but I've noticed that she seems uncomfortable when we lift her legs into the 'arm' holes. Has anyone come across a wrap around style that's not waterproof as it's just for the house so would like it to be comfy enough for her to sleep in?

Equafleece make various styles and they are really good quality. I've had several for a number of my dogs. Great customer service too smile.gif

It fits over the dogs head, there is a strip which you place between the legs which attaches to each side with Velcro.

Ooh, that looks good. I have a chilly old girl who is going to get one of those. At the moment she wiggles under cushions of I cover her with her own blanket. I stopped using the one with 'arm' holes as it was difficult to get on as she got less nimble.

I'll be honest, I have an equafleece for one of my dogs and I don't really rate it for warmth - I have a couple of other fleece coats that were about a fifth of the price from the local market and they keep my dogs much warmer.

Perfect thank you! Bought one of each suggestions! Hopefully she will stop hogging my electric blanket now.

I had an Equafleece for my dalmatian and he was toasty warm under it. I could warm my hands there.

He found it too hot at times.

It was really thick and close fitting but it was a proper Equalfleece one, not the Hotterdog type.

My experience really couldn't have been further from yours - mine was proper equafleece too, bought direct from equafleece. It belonged to Skittle first, she mainly used to wear it to come home after hydrotherapy, and even in the car with the heating going she always had cold ears and was cold under the coat when we took her out of the car at home (30 minute drive) whilst Tarry, who was wearing the 6 off the market fleece jumper, was always toasty warm.

Despite being the size recommended by equafleece (I rang them to check her measurements and make sure) the coat never fitted her well and always, always slipped down and round to one side when she was walking - several other of my dogs have worn it since and they've all had exactly the same problem. I tried tightening up the straps as far as they'd go, but still the coat slipped. I have been completely put off equafleece by this coat, and although I might consider a jumper from them in future, I definitely wouldn't buy another of their coats.

Me too - I've bought 6 of their Tankies and 2 of the Hotterdog jumpers and they've all been really warm.
