It might be a tad bit hot to wear a sweater / jacket in Florida winter. If you're looking for fashion, there's customized Ralph Lauren sweater to el-cheapo Old Navy. If you're looking for function, there's REI. Remember dogs cannot sweat like human, pick something that repels the elements yet maintain air flow.
It's 13F this morning in Toronto Canada, Mocha & Vienna insisted on their birthday suit :)
We got Charlotte a little jacket at Pet Supermarket. But any pet supply store (ie Petco, Petsmart, etc) should have something cute for Olive! I heard puppies get colder than adult dogs that's why we got her a little jacket. Stanley (2 years old) loves feeling that cool air blowing through his fur!
@Sam, don't you know we're going down to the 20's tonight! That's cold for us Floridians!!!
Rosie and Rocky go out when it's -30 wind chill with nothing but their own fur and are fine!! We don't leave them out long when it's that cold but come on people. These are herding dogs, meant to work outside in all weather. Rocky and Rosie pant when we are on a walk and it's in the teens!!! A little common sense about length of time outside and corgis are fine in the cold and wet. The only time I put a coat on Rosie was after Rosie had shoulder surgery and they shaved her entire shoulder down to the skin and under her belly. I made her a fleece blanket, like a horse blanket, so we didn't have to mess with the sore shoulder. I was worried about frost bite on that bare skin since it was -20 in Feb that year after her surgery in Feb. Rocky would not be impressed with a coat.
Speaking as a Wisconsin human, let me extrapolate <---------using big words proves I am human.
Born and raised in Wisconsin I am accustomed to cold. Heavy coated corgis are good for cold temps.
Being a whiny princess, I hate the wind, wind-chill, sleet and all related precipitation, and make sure my outer clothing is water/windproof. I always wear boots. Being a puppy, a young corgi may object to other aspects of weather than just the temp.
Therefore, go for waterproof, lightly lined, perhaps a thin fleece lining. Even Florida can have it's winter primadonnas! Just ask my Florida relatives who visit here without even a warm pair of socks. Don't even ask about my Jamaican relatives!
As for fluffy ice balls, my springers gets ice balls between the toes. It seems to be a springer thing, having to do with the type of hair they have + the temp and humidity. Sometimes they need boots, sometimes not. Do fluffies have this same type of hair between the toes, or all over? Does it only happen at certain temps and humidities? I would love to hear, since I have been trying to figure out how best to deal with the springer issue.
Another serious issue to consider with Olive is.........just how darn cute are the little clothes?
