Coats

I need some suggestions on coats. What types are out there and what manufacturers does everyone like?

I like the ones custom/made-to-fit. Otherwise thy are usually short-back, too tight at the chest and loose at the collar!
Go check out cozycoatsandmore.com
I just got my new brown coat for Axl from Pam and its beautiful AND warm!

Lots of coat threads on DT!

I like Cozy Coats and More, and Fido Fleece fit Dobermans really well. I've started whipping up my own fleece coats, too. It's very easy if you have a sewing machine and there are a few patterns out there.

We just ordered a winter coat for Odin from an Etsy store called Tootlewear. Great prices, homemade, customs sizes. I will let you know about the coat quality when we get it!

They aren't too hard to make. I made one for our pup in the fall because she was an absolute wimp her first winter. I used a waterproof brown material for the outer shell, and lined in a nice sweater material that carried to the neck. I added buttons to the belt to make it more "fashionable". I let the man pick out the fabric so he wouldn't complain about walking her in a "girly" jacket... seemed to have worked =)

I mentioned it before.
In Canada "Greenhawk" is a supplier of equestrian supplies. They also make a smaller version of their horse blankets to fit dogs. My dogs play soooo rough (as I'm sure most Dobes do) and these coats hold up!
Outer shell is waterproof and dirt wipes right off. Inside is fleecy. Easy to get on and off. Different sizes and reasonable prices.
In fact the Greenhawk warehouse sale is coming up soon and you can probably get dog coats for about $20 cdn. They have a website and will deliver.

I'm lucky enough to live in a really animal oriented town, and we have a store right here that does custom fleece lined dog coats. They're the horse blanket type, waterproof and they last forever.

Fido Fleece coats are good, but I bought a bunch of coats very similiar to fido fleeces from Fetchdog when they were on sale last year, and I think they're warmer than the fido fleeces. Couldn't beat the sale price for them either-$10.00!! Anyway, the fleece is better quality on the Fetchdog.com coats than on the fido fleeces, so I'd definitely be willing to pay full price for them if I saw them again.

Hurtta Pro Winter Jacket

I was thinking about getting Ivan the Hurtta Winter Dog Jacket. Anyone on here have experience with them? It's water proof with an adjustable waist and neck. But like others have mentioned, I'm afraid if I get it long enough, it'll be too big in the neck and chest regardless of adjustment although at least one website talks about how great it fits Dobes. Ivan's long and lanky and hasn't developed much of a chest at this point. He's a little over a year now.

For a cool weather fleece and raincoat I'm happy with my Royal Canin coats-for walks-she doesn't wear a coat out in the yard because if the weather's crappy she's won't stay out anyway. For really cold weather, I used her fleece as a pattern and extended it to make a heavy horse blanket type coat-has a layer of fleece, 2 layers quilt batting and an outer layer of denim, with a separate turtleneck/snood.

I just got a chilly dog sweater for Chanel. It arrived two days later. (and I ordered in the evening.)

It fits well & she seems comfortable. Hopefully it will keep her warm in the farmhouse this winter. (Too expensive to heat the whole place comfortably so we leave it low & use the wood stove in the kitchen.)

Yeah, I'm bummed, too. They always had awesome clearance sales. The new company is okay, but it's not quite the same.

If you live in Texas you won't really need much of a coat, will you? I got one from Schneider's Saddlery. It was called a Dog Warmer. It really fit nice. I also bought one that was made like the mini horse blanket and it works, but when it's really cold it doesn't cover her chest as much as I LIKE. I've also used kids sweatshirts on my dog. LOL

Cool Coat from Clean Run

I bought Ivan the Cool Coat from Clean Run.

Clean Run: Cool Coats

I only had one chance to test it out thus far. It was about an 85 degree day.

For the first part of the walk I only wet down the coat. In about 15 minutes it was starting to dry out, but definitely kept him cooler based on feeling the exposed versus unexposed fur.

I then sprayed Ivan and the coat down with the hose and took another 15 minute walk. The coat stayed damp longer this time and definitely kept Ivan cool.

Normally after a half hour walk in the heat like that he'll come home and immediately flop down on the floor to cool off. With the Cool Coat on he came home and was ready to go and didn't lay down at all.

He's 26" long, so that's the size coat I bought him. He has a 33" girth and I would say I have to use the last bits of velcro to get the belly band on him snug to make sure the coat doesn't flop around. It's probably a little loser in the neck than I'd prefer, but definitely not bad.

Don't let Prime know that....he is a Texas Dobe who loves his cozy costs jammies! They come in handy when people in the house like to keep it cold.

I have the same Cool Coat for Shanoa and we love it!

from another thread, we went to Cozy Horse and have updated Quincy's wardrobe with three jackets - one custom made with a collar for his highness. Haven't had a chance to take pics yet, but Q will do a modeling session soon.
