Well-Designed for the Water-Shy Hound
By xma4037397 October 24, 2011
Our cattle dog does not like the rain. We could get her out for about a half mile tops before we purchased this jacket. She'd squint her eyes against the rain and turn back home at the first opportunity. We got a medium (her harness is for a 20-28" chest). While it is a bit big for her chest, the body length is great for her. It doesn't slip at all and she actually seems to like it. I felt a bit odd about having her in a rain coat at first, but we get to go for longer walks in the rain than before, so I'm over it!
Features we really like:
Easy to get on and off - clips concealed enough that they stay clean, though.
Hood folds back - great if it stops raining mid-outing. We leave it attached; she likes it on when it is actively raining.
Loop for light - we've got some short days headed our way in the northern hemisphere.
Keeps the belly dry as well as the back.
