In case anyone reading this has a Doberman like mine that likes it's creature comforts these coats are a fantastic product for the winter months. We Floridians it seems have little tolerance for cold weather and that I find, transfers over to our short haired dogs. May have something to do with the fact that we don't have much time to acclimate. It can be 84 degrees one day and drop, though on rare occasions, to 40 the next. I can personally vouch for these coats because I own a few myself. They're attractive, made to order so they fit well and, best of all, they're created with care by a small business owner right here in the good 'ole US of A. So, if you want to keep your not so furry friend toasty warm when the temps plummet and have your pooch looking snazzy too, best order a made by MeadowCat made especially for them! The coats themselves are made of fleece... you choose the fabric, wash well and hold up to the rigors of rough Dobie play. I love them and so it seems do my dogs. While the contest is nearly over the contact information remains the same.
