Excellent, but DON'T dry it!

After trying many other coats over the past few years, I decided to splurge on these for my two small dachshund mixes who need the extra warmth during New England winters. I often struggle with sizing as they're both long but trim, and many coats that fit girth-wise are too short length-wise. After checking the sizing chart, I went with the correct length even though their necks and chests were much smaller than the size indicated. The construction and design of this coat meant I could adjust the straps and they fit perfectly!! As others have mentioned, the rear leg elastics weren't my dogs favorite initially, but they got used to them quickly and don't seem bothered now. There is no real way to use a harness with this coat, but we use regular collars and leashes and they work fine.
One thing to note, these need to be line dried. During the first washing, I looked quickly for instructions, and didn't see any. I tossed them in with wonderfully soft "fur" collars, and they came out with a melted felt-type collar. HUGE bummer.
