Why does my dog need a coat?

In this age of central heating, dogs with smooth or minimal hair do feel the cold when they go out for walks from a warm house as do dogs with silky hair i.e. Yorkshire Terriers, whose fine coats offer no real protection from the elements. During the wet days, this problem is compounded as the dampness penetrates into the bones.

Ageing dogs particularly need a coat as they are more prone to having kidney problems and the coats are designed to protect this very vulnerable area. Dogs that live in an outside kennel or dogs that have needed to be clipped off or very short for medical reasons should also be protected.

In addition, the majority of dogs just appreciate the extra warmth and snug protection a DogRug provides, regardless of hair length.

How to measure your dog?

To measure for a coat it is necessary to have the dog standing properly. Take an exact measurement in centimetres from where the collar sits naturally on the back of the neck, down to the base of the tail. Please do NOT add any additional inches to the required length of these coats for good measure or they will not fit when you receive them! The girth of the coat is directly proportional to the length.

With certain breeds where the length and girth are disproportional, we can offer tailor made coats to order but we will still require the dog to be measured along its back, with an additional measurement from the centre of the back down to below its belly at the widest point.

Please Note:
All our sizes are in 5cm to 10cm increments only
