Which Dog Coat Should I Choose?
We often receive emails asking:
"I live in [Location], what kind of coat
should I order?"
Your dog's need for warmth will vary greatly depending on
the breed, age, and the individual sensitivity of your dog. Here
are some guidelines to help you choose the right coat for the dog
Looking at the coats in order of warmth:
- Warm: The Snuggler Fleece
Coat is made of a double-sided
300 wt Polartec® fleece. Perfect for mild to cool weather
or for dogs who like an indoor coat to stay warm and cozy. Durable
and washable. A water-resistant
nylon outside is available as a fabric choice.
- Warm, Windproof + Waterproof: The Rain
With two layers, an outer modern Waterproof/Breathable fabric and
inner Polartec® Fleece,
this is a nice, mid-weight waterproof coat. It's appropriate for
rainy, blustery, chilly Spring and Autumn weather in cold climates
like Wisconsin, Canada, Utah, Ohio, New York, etc. It is also perfect
for chilly or rainy days year-round in a milder climate like Georgia
or California. I use the Rain Chaser for my dogs when the temperature
is above freezing. For extra waterproofing, we offer seam sealer
for an additional $20.
- Very Warm, Windproof + Waterproof: The Snow
Angel Winter Coat -
standard 200 Wt. Fleece: This 3 layer coat includes the modern
Waterproof/Breathable outer shell, an inner layer of Polartec® fleece,
as well as a layer of quilt batting in-between. A really excellent
all around winter coat for medium and cold climates. This is
the coat I use for my dogs in Wisconsin, where the temperature
regularly goes sub-zero, and is used by many customers for winters
in the colder states in the US: New York, Michigan, Wisconsin,
Montana, Massachusetts, Alaska, etc., and throughout Canada.
- Warmest + Waterproof: Winter
Coats With Extra Fleece Options:
- A heavier inner fleece
300 Wt. (+$15) adds warmth to the standard winter coat. Good
for more sensitive dogs, older dogs or just to give your dog
a little extra warmth.
- Wind Pro fleece option (+$40): this adds
a denser, warmer Polartec Wind Pro fleece that's especially
made for wind extremes. Consider this if you're often in a
- The very
warmest coat is a Snow Angel with Polartec High Loft Curly
Fleece (+$50), which is both light and very warm.
This popular choice provides unmatched protection from the
cold. And, it's beautiful, snuggly, and soft!
