We love our pets as if they are furry, family members. However, they are not people, and have very different physical needs than we do. To many of our canine friends sleeves, turtlenecks, hoods and pant legs feel similar to a straight jacket. They may feel "trapped". This limits their mobility and comfort level often causing problems when they need to "do their business". Leaving both the dog and the owner frustrated and unhappy.
Our veterinarian approved design makes our coats comfortable. Adjustable Velcro closures on the chest and neck allows you to adjust for the many breeds and rib cage widths. This will make for the best fit for YOUR pet.
Our neck closure lets the collar and tags remain unobstructed while giving access for leashes and dog-runs. The chest belt fits directly behind their front legs, keeping the belt "north" and away from their back end. This design gives them the warmth and snugness they need without impeding elimination or causing distress to your pet.
When you purchase this fleece dog coat, you will be feeding a shelter dog for 2 days through our partnership with Rescue Bank. Dogs are typically fed twice a day so this includes 2 meals/day for a shelter dog in need. Thank you for helping us make a difference in dogs' lives. We appreciate your support in our mission to feed all hungry dogs in need until they find their furever homes.
To get your pet the proper fit, please follow the above scale for your pet. The length is what determines which size you will need for your pet.
To find the right size coat for your dog, you will needto measure along their back from the collar to the base of the tail. In the photo above, this dog measures @ 12" and would wear a medium. To adjust the length you simply adjust the neck closure. The ability to add or subtract from the length will give you a great fit with the coat ending @1-3" from the base of the tail.
Measure for the chest belt around the rib cage, directly behind the front legs. It is usually where the chest is the widest . All belts are adjustable to accommodate grooming and growth.
Want a pattern or size you don't see here? Email us at email@example.com. If your fur kid falls between sizes or larger than an XX-Large, please let us know, custom fitting is what we do! All coats are made when ordered so we can make sure to get you the fit that your pet needs. Please measure carefully as the coat will be cut to fit your dog per your measurements, therefore cannot be "restocked" or returned.
