Product Guide: Dog Coats
Summer has passed and the nights are getting cooler – it won’t be long before winter is in full swing, and if you can feel the cold, so can your dog. Here are our picks for the most comfortable, functional and stylish dog coats & jumpers.
To make things more interesting, we’ve also included some coats that can help your dog with cooling, staying afloat and anxiety!
Australia is known for its harsh climate and unpredictable weather patterns. This attractive coat is guaranteed to outlast the wettest and windiest days and keep your dog dry as a bone, and because it’s Driza-Bone, you know you’ll be getting a quality, long-lasting product.
It’s made of Driza-Bone Cotton Oilskin fabric and lined with a lightweight and breathable cotton, so your dog is wrapped in comfort whilst being protected from whatever the weather throws at it!
Keep your pooch snug and stylish in this wrap vest from FuzzYard. With a 100% cotton shell and extra-soft polyester lining, this coat couldn’t be any easier to wash. It features an easy-to-attach Velcro strap which stretches, so if you have a growing pooch or a dog who love to eat, the coat will adapt.
It comes in a large variety of colours and patterns and a number of sizes, so your dog’s coat can be just as unique as its wearer!
Whether it be for a stylish walk, a bit of mud play or an explore through the bush, these premium dog coats are designed to last the distance and also adhere to practical messy dog life. They’re fully machine washable (in cold water) and quick fit with snap-lock buckles.
The tailored designs contour perfectly to your dog’s body, so each jacket is a great fit for any breed or size.
This revolutionary product is not your average dog coat. Thundershirt is a proven, drug-free anxiety, fear and excitement reducer for dogs, with a success rate of over 80%. It works by gently applying constant (yet comfortable) pressure to the dog, just like swaddling an infant. As you could probably guess from the name, the coat is great for assisting dogs with anxiety and fear during thunderstorms, loud wind, fireworks and other noises which may trigger a reaction.
Starting from $59.99, it’s a reasonable price for a product which could help with your dog’s anxiety!
If you like to bring your pup along with you on nautical adventures, a life jacket is essential. The EzyDog Doggy Life Jacket is perfect for the dog who loves to swim (not to mention learning to swim!). The foam inside the DFD (Dog Floating Device) has been strategically placed to ensure that every dog will swim upright when in water.
It also features padded chest straps and a super strong nylon D-ring to transport and secure your dog when required. Best of all, there’s a handle at the top in the event you ever need to quickly pluck your dog out of the water. The jacket comes in 5 sizes ranging from extra-small to extra-large.
Summer may have passed, but it’s never too late to start preparing for the next bout of brutally hot weather. Aussie dogs have it particularly hard, with temperatures often exceeding 40 degrees during summer. The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler(TM) Cooling Dog Vest provides protection from the sun and cooling through evaporation.
To activate the Swamp Cooler, soak in water, wring out and place on your dog. The light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation, while evaporative cooling pulls heat from the dog.
