    My little yorkie gets cold on evening walks but it isn't easy finding a jumper with a harness hole. I've got some raincoats, but not jumpers/fleeces as they also have to be sleeveless or she won't move. Thanks.

    I either put the harness over the top or make a hole myself and stitch around it, i prefer having the harness under clothing so most of their coats and fleeces/jumpers etc have holes i've made in them :)

    I did cut a hole in her last fleece, but not sure how long it will last now with my sewing skills...

    I don't sew them all that perfectly but they have all held together fine, the loop for the harness pokes out through the hole so the edge isn't being rubbed all the time or anything

    I did try to change it, but couldn't work out how to change the main title :)

    If you do find any good products, please let me know. My Auntie is looking for the same thing for her poodle.

    I never even bothered sewing any holes I cut for harnesses, everything kept its shape ok though. Fleece is esp good for this as it doesnt fray.:)

    If you want a rain coat pets at home do one with a harness hole and Puppy kit pet couture have one that is a pink puffa jacket. They also do one with a built in harness but she hated the sleeves.

    I always put harness on over the top of the coat/fleece. However all you need to do is get someone with a sewing machine to make a button hole in the back of your coat/fleece/jumper for you :)

    I got this one for Angel
    Olive Bone Fleece by Simply She Small | Pets at Home
    It has 70% off, think it was just over £2 and the hole for the harness is in just the right place, I reserved one online to pick up in our local store so you may be able to do that.

    As an aside has anyone else noted the mad sizes on Pets at Home's new improved sizing range? The small size is the same but the medium that would normally fit Alfie is nearly big enough for my friends DDB :yikes: I've asked in store about them and just got a shrug so I sent an email but got no reply.
