Q: How much can the neck be scrunched smaller? My dog is 17 inches long and has a chest of 21 inches, but her neck is only 15.5 inches. The size 18 chart shows it's for a 24 inch neck, which is a HUGE difference from what my dog needs. i understand length is most important, but want to make sure the neck isn't going to be way too big. Thanks!

Asked by: Erica - 11/16/2018
A: Hi Erica,

Thank you for your interest in the Extreme Warmer. The neck has two drawstrings, one at the base of the neck and one at the opening. Both can be scrunched up as tight as you need them too.

Thank you,
Courtney

Q: Hi, would you recommend this coat for a Cardigan Welsh corgi (long body, short legs)? If so, what size do I need? My dog is a 1 year old male weighing 32 pounds. The back length is about 20". The chest circumference is 21.5"

Asked by: Anna - 11/1/2016
A: Thank you for your interest in the Hurtta Extreme Warmer Dog Coat. You will need size 20 for your Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The coats are wonderful because they can be adjusted in the back, chest and neck area.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Q: Hello, I would need some help: I would like to purchase a warm wintercoat for my 5kg small terrier-mix lady who has lmid-ong fur, but no undercoat. My two options are the new extreme war er and the ultimate warmer. The biggest issue by my dog with all the jackets are the chest area. Due to her small size she gets snow-balls everytime under the jackets which stay at her chest and makes her freeze...:/ Which of the 2 jackets would you recommend for this problem? Of course, on the pictures I can not see good how big or small is the cut for the chest-leg part, and if its too big, snow will still go in. Thank you in advance for your help.

Asked by: Eszter - 11/15/2016
A: Thank you for your interest in our products! Both the Extreme warmer and the Ultimate Warmer are excellent winter coats.

The Extreme Warmer is the warmest of the two coats and provides great coverage of the whole dog with the built in snood. This Coat has a flap that keeps the chest area warm and protected.

The Ulitmate Warmer also provides great coverage of the whole dog and is designed for active dogs. This coat does have elastic hind leg straps to keep the coat in place. There is a flap that covers the chest area.

If you are looking for complete coverage with legs included the Dakata Snow Suit is the best. This coat is designed to keep the snow, wind and water away from the dogs body.

I hope this helps you decide which coat is best for your dog. Please feel free to contact me with any questions anytime.

Q: Which is the warmest of the winter coats? I was just about to order the Dakota Snow Suit and then I noticed the Extreme Warmer dog coat. I live in Toronto Canada and my dog is a parson terrier. She is usually out on a walk for at least 45 minutes so I want to make sure she is warm. Thanks so much for you answers. Your customer service is great!

Asked by: alix - 11/23/2016
A: Hi Alix
The Extreme Warmer has a new innovative foil lining that reflect the dogs body heat which makes it a very warm coat. The Dakota Suit also covers the legs which insulates the dog further than when wearing a coat. I would say the two are pretty similar warmth wise so it depends on whether you want the legs covered or not.
Thank you,
Katja

Q: My 16 lb spaniel mix has has worn Hurtta winter coats for several seasons. We walk in temps down to 10F and with 2 fleeces under her Hurtta coats she remains comfortable and happy (and stylish) for long walks. I am interested in trying the Extreme Warmer coat for her this season and was wondering if wearing a fleece under the coat will negate the warming effect. In other words, is it not recommended to use a primary layer under the Extreme Warmer coat?

Asked by: Rosie - 12/17/2016
A: Hi Rosie
That is a very good question.
The heat reflective lining will probably loose some of it's properties if what is layered underneath doesn't allow heat to come though. I would think the Hurtta Body Suit, which also has a heat reflective Lining would be the best option for layering with the Extreme Warmer.
Thank you,
Katja

Q: Hi! I am thinking of purchasing this coat for my Miniature Daschund, and was wondering about sizing. He has Hurta Summit in a size 12 and it is way too short over his back. Fits him great everywhere else. He measures 14 inches on his back, and 16 inches for the chest measurement. What would you recommend? Thank you!

Asked by: Deborah - 10/7/2017
A: Hi Deborah
The back is the most important, especially on this coat as it goes down around the backend. If the back measures 14" then that is the size you need.
Thank you,
Katja

Q: Can you recommend a good size for a male European Doberman? He is one year and 2 months, and we weighs about 80lbs. My last Doberman required a 28", but he was American and 110lbs. Also, how long does shipping usually take to Ontario, Canada? Thanks!

Asked by: Alex - 9/14/2018
A: Hi Alex,

I would need a few measurements to give a recommendation on size. If you can email me your Dobermans back length and chest measurement I will be better able to assist with this.
International shipping times will depend on the shipping method you choose at check out but a good time line to go by is 6-10 business days (outside of any customs)

Thank you,
Anna

Asked by: Cc - 9/27/2019

Thank you for your interest in the Extreme Warmer.

If the coat is the right size, it will not obstruct your dog in any way, including when he or she goes to the bathroom.

Q: I take my bearded collie swimming for therapy, and I'm trying to keep her warm during the 45-60 minute drive back. She got chilled last winter and I covered her in wool blankets. Because she is wet, I didn't want to put her regular Hurrta summit parka on her - I'm wondering if this is a solution, or whether I should get a Hurrta body warmer for under her current parka. The snood of the Extreme Winter is very appealing.

Asked by: Theresa Hush - 11/11/2019
A: Hi Theresa
For a wet dog I would use an Ohio Fleece Suit as it will wick away the moisture while drying.
https://www.eurodogdesigns.com/Ohio-Fleece-Dog-Suit
The winter coats are not as good at that. We also have the Alaska Fleece Snood that you can combine with the fleece suit.
https://www.eurodogdesigns.com/Euro-Dog-Designs-Alaska-Fleece-Snood.html
That is what I would recommend for a wet dog.
Thank you, Katja

Q: Hello, I see the Hurtta Extreme Warmer only goes up to size 26" whereas the Hurtta Summit Parka comes in larger sizes. I am trying to fit to a 60lb greyhound with a 27" back and wouldn't mind if it stretched further down her rump, so I think 28" would be a better fit. It also looks like the Extreme Warmer is a heavier duty jacket as compared to the Summit Parka. I live in Chicago, so I'm looking for a jacket to cover the chest/stomach/belly as much as possible, the rump, the neck, and be nicely insulated. Would you be able to confirm that a 28" would be a better fit for a 27" greyhound; and clarify which jacket has more insulation; and/or provide recommendations for a jacket that meets the qualifications I am trying to reach? I also thought about getting the Hurtta Body Warmer for an extra full-cover layer on those extra cold days that will surely come to Chicago this winter. Since you know these products, I appreciate your recommendation and help!

Asked by: Carolyn - 11/14/2019
A: Hi, Carolyn

Yes, I would think you would need a size 28 for your 27" girl, a size 26 would probably be too small.

You are correct that Extreme Warmer only goes to a size 26" while the Summit Parka and Expedition Parka goes to bigger sizes.

I have linked to our blog on the differences in the tree coats:

https://www.eurodogdesigns.com/comparing-winter-dog-coats

As you can see it also mentions our own Dakota Snowsuit, that covers the whole dog (except where they go to the bathroom) and might be what you are looking for.

I hope that helps you, if not you are more than welcome to contact us again.

Thank you, Mia

Q: Im looking for advice on cold weather dog coats. I purchased the SUMMIT PARKA last winter for my two pups. It is a very nice coat-the only issue I have run into is that one of my pups LOVES running through deep snow(he's only 16lbs) while we are out hiking in the winter-and the snow tends to build up under the coat in his chest area. Not sure if it is coming in through the top neck area or around the arm holes. Do you think the Extreme Warmer would alleviate this? Would the integrated snood be a bit tighter and keep the snow from building up inside the coat. The boy loves the snow-but will get cold really quickly if the snow build up next to his chest. Thanks- Karin

Asked by: Karin Koenen - 11/29/2019
A: Hi, Karin

It sounds like you need a Snow Suit more than a coat, that way the legs are also covered.

We have the Dakota Snow Suit:

https://www.eurodogdesigns.com/EuroDogDesignsDakotaSnowSuitforDogs

I think this will resolve a lot of your issues. If you still want something to cover the head and ears we have the Alaska Fleece Snood:
