Lily has the same snowsuit as Chagall! Same color and everything. With the suit and booties she does pretty well staying warm and ice ball free.

We keep Dancer in a really short cut but she still gets snowballs on her legs. The dog booties work well but then the snowballs collect above where the booties end. We special ordered longer booties that go above her 'elbows' - slightly different lengths for front & back feet. Haven't used them yet I think they will work.

Thankfully, we don't get much snow ! But if we do, I plan to keep a hair dryer in the garage and leave the mess in there with the cars... You never know around here, last year snow was not an issue , the year before we had alot of snow. With two spoos, I hope to never see it again.

I think that to a certain extent, it depends on the dog's fur. Jasper spends a great deal of time on the mountain during the winter and has never had snowballs, even though he has bracelets.

I'd recommend some type of gaiter, like the ones in the post above, if you're having trouble with it, though.

We shoveled the walk for my toy, that would be quick in quick out potty stop. For walks, he had a snowsuit. 50 something years later, I still have it, hope Spookie never wears it.
My Mpoo just wore a coat, don't remember much sticking to her.

My Belgian Terv. laid on a throw rug till he defrosted. He was a crazy dog, loved the snow. He'd chew the snow balls off himself, then zonk out.

If we have another snowy winter I plan on getting snowsuits for both of mine. I can just about cope with the deforsting when the get home, but they are so timy that they get snow balls in their armpits, and stop moving, and then have to be either defrosted on the spot or carried home. Nylon trouser suits (I've found good ones for about 15 from Cosipet in the UK) seem like a good, economical answer.

My miniature schnauzers have a major problem in the snow. They come back inside looking like a snowball. We shovel paths around the yard for them when the snow gets too deep and they love it. The 3 of them zoom through the paths, chasing each other.

They seem to really love the snow, even if it is a pain when they come inside.

Chagall's Mom, and Catherine which Muttluks coat do you have?

I see they have three models of "coats" are you using the insulated variety (do they get too warm in the insulated ones on mild days?) and I was just wondering which ones you preferred. I think I am going to order one as I just realized I probably don't want to deal with poodle lumps!

Lily has the reversible snow suit. I don't think I would say that she has ever overheated in it. Last year was very mild and had virtually no smow, so I don't think she ever had it on last winter, but the previous two were very snowy and we were happy to have it.
