Highly functional water-repellent dog coat
Especially small breeds and those dog breeds with single coats can benefit from a warm and cosy jacket when the temperatures drop. Also, older dogs and those with joint problems or rheumatism will like the additional warmth of a dog coat. The warm inner lining of the water-repellent dog coat Brooklyn retains your dog’s body warmth while the waterproof outer fabric keeps out the wet.
The elongated jacket will not only keep your dogs back and chest warm but will also ensure that the neck stays cosy. The simple velcro fastener allows you to put the jacket on and off very quickly. And a small zip opening on the top allows fitting a harness underneath. An elastic band allows adjusting the coat.

How to measure the coat size
Measurements you require to determine the perfect size are taken around the chest and from the neck alongside the back. Please take chest measurements at the widest circumference. Ensure that your dog is relaxed and breathes normally when you take the measurements – best with a soft measuring tape or a piece of threat you can measure later. Always allow a 2-finger wide space between the coat and your dogs’ skin. You want a snug fit but nothing too tight to interfere with their breathing.
Do dogs need clothes in winter?
Dog sweaters, jackets or coats can be helpful in cold weather. Especially when your dog’s own fur coat might not be enough. Short-haired and small breeds like Chihuahuas or Greyhounds well as younger or older dogs can benefit from a coat to retain their body warmth and keep out the wet. On the other hand, larger dogs and those with dense coats might not require additional insulation at all. Extreme examples are Huskies or Malamutes, whose fur is perfectly suited to cold temperatures and who might overheat when wearing additional layers. Please ask your vet when you’re unsure. Also, ensure that your dog coats do not contain any parts that can be chewed off and swallowed like buttons or hooks.
