Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Fall Fashion Havachon Style

DD loves argyle and she really wanted to put something pink on Daisy, so when we found this sweater that was the best of both worlds, we just couldn’t resist!

I love my new fall sweater!

We thought we’d have trouble getting Daisy to let us put the sweater on her, but she just loved it! We put it on her when we went to a fall festival on a chilly day, but she seemed to enjoy wearing it at home too.

Bad Vet had told us that Daisy would need to wear something indoors all the time during fall and winter, but that didn’t make a lot of sense to me. After all, Havachons have a double coat, and we’re letting Daisy’s hair grow a little longer during these cooler months.

So we double-checked with our new vet, who’s a much more down-to-earth doctor and whose opinions we respect. He said she should only wear something in the house if the house temp is 40 degrees or less, which of course it never is! He told us that if she always wears clothing, her double coat won’t come in and she’ll freeze when we take her outside during winter months. However, if it’s very cold outside and she’s going to be out for more than 15 minutes, then she should have something on to keep her warm.

Looking online, I can see lots of freebie, unchecked articles recommending dog clothes in all types of weather; many of those “writers” are actually sellers of pet clothing, so their articles serve their own purpose.

How do you know whether and when you should clothe your pet? Check with your trusted vet, he/she knows best!
