A Dog Coat for Winter May be EssentialKeith
Your Dog may need a winter coat, and it could be essential
Listed below are possibly the best three dog coats you can get for your best friend
On cold, wet or icy wind days, many dogs need more than just their own fur for warmth. Regardless of your dog’s requirements, comfort and fit are essential. Choose a coat too close to their ‘undercarriage’ or back-end and there will be doggy wee mishaps with every wear, whereas one that’s too tight, particularly around their chest area, will restrict their movement.
Alex Frith of dog lifestyle blog Barkarama sums up coats designed to deal with typically British bad weather. Some are designed for specific breeds while others guarantee your pooch is best presented across town and country.
1. Colt Waxed Canvas Jacket: from £46, houndworthy.com
Designed by US doggie brand Billy Wolf, Barkarama’s hound has been wearing this coat for several winters. It’s made from tough, rain-resistant waxed cotton, with a soft faux fur lining. The velcro chest fastening and the equestrian-inspired buckle on the underbelly band keep everything in place.
2. Henry Holland Red Tartan Dog Coat: from £50, Petspyjamas.com
Part of a new collaboration between British fashion designer Henry Holland and PetsPyjamas, this jazzy coat comes in red and pink tartan or a navy and orange version. It’s fleece-lined with velcro fastenings and comes in sizes small to extra large.
3. Animate Fleece Lined Waterproof Dog Coat: from £10.71 Amazon.co.uk
Waterproof, windproof and warm, this versatile fleece-lined coat ticks all the boxes to repel the elements. It fastens easily with Velcro straps fixed around the chest and under the belly, and is available in an impressive 14 sizes. We particularly like the name label badge fixed to the lining so that errant pooches can be identified.
