Hey guys...
I went shopping for a few coats for Dash but was unable to buy one b/c I wasn't too sure of the size I should be getting. He'll probably be around 5-6 lbs. and I'm not sure what size I should actually get. They have 8", 10", 12" and 14".

Pls. advise.

Tx

Well, Dash was about 1.5lbs last week.

So basically, you guys don't go by inches (ie. coat - 12") when you purchase for your dogs? You have to know the actual measurements (l+w+h)? I thought the inches (ie. on the coat) referred to the length of the dog?

Just wanted to let you know not to spend too much money on clothes that will fit him when you get him.  They grow so fast that they won't fit him for long.

I know some people have gotten the clothes that are made for teddy bears for their puppies.

LOL! Don't worry most of us did that. Before I got Lexi in April 2004 I had bought her over a $100 in clothes. She had outgrown them all by Aug 2004! LOL! Luckily they will probably fit Nikki now and when she is fully grown.
PetCo and PetsMart usually have some really cute (and cheap) winter clothes. They go pretty fast so keep an eye out for them. A lot of times they are on their websites months before they are instores. Sometimes the stores don't even get all of them.
