I was planning on letting her spend the night in the kennel every other night to acclimate to the weather starting now as its not bad cold yet. This thread has me wondering if that's enough or if I should have her spend time in the kennel daily to get a thick coat. Typically 30s-40s is the coldest but can dip down to teens. Nothing like the folks in Canada deal with though.

The coat fastens around the dog with magnets and when the dog goes on retrieve the coat falls off. You could still use the vest with the coat in harsh conditions in Canada. Safe, warm and good camo also.
