Our three minis and two visitors on a very cold day at the play park :)

Leigh, fab photo of two legged cheeky schnauzers.... I love the lime green and grey coat, is it one of yours and if so where did you get it from.

Julie - the green and grey coat is our Pip's and it is a Hurtta Ultimate Warmer. They call the colour "birch" but it is a lovely green. I am not sure how easy it is to get hold of this style, colour and size as we originally got this from Fetch a few years ago.
I did find this link on Amazon but you could try other sellers:

Judith said she found the sizing of this style a bit awkward for our dogs as the proportion of chest size to length seems different to other styles. Pip's is the 30 cm size and it does fit her fine but you may need to check sizing carefully :-)

Cracking picture, I have one similar from a Schnauzer walk earlier this month.

I tried to give my Oscar and Sasha a treat on the quiet but was soon surrounded :) so I asked them to sit nicely and sit they did.

My two are on the far right-hand side (Oscar then Sasha).

Thanks for that Leigh. Otto hasn't worn a coat yet, Oscar had Equafleeces and I am always keeping an eye out for nice coats.

Mike, another super photo and I think there are a couple of schnauzers there that really stand out as being perfectly obedient.....:-)

Mike - great picture of some well behaved schnauzers :-) They have a great radar system to know when any dog is getting treats in my experience.

Julie - we do like the Hurtta coats although they are very expensive but do last well. Equafleece do some great jumpers and other dog wear. Our visitors (Mabel & Kaspar) have some lovely Equafleece jumpers and we have a smart one for one of our affens too which we have had for almost a decade!

Thanks for your nice comments Leigh and Julie, regards my picture :D

Thought I would also 'weigh-in' with support of Equafleece coats/jumpers, Oscar has a couple and although he doesn't really like wearing any type of coat, they do look nice and I believe keep him warm. Even though they are fleece and you think the rain would soak through, it doesn't.

In my experience though, it's best to get one at a dog show (like Paws in the Park) or somewhere where they have a stand, so they can easily measure your dog whilst there, to get a better fit.

Two lovely pictures. I love how dogs spot treats being given out. They have a real sixth sense for them.

Some great fashionable coats there Leigh and Mike, Oscar and Sash look like they're the best behaved dogs there.

My girls are happy to wear coats but have to make do with Hi Viz yellow :)
