Dog Raincoat FAQ's

A dog raincoat is essential for keeping your furry friend dry during wet weather. It provides protection from wind, mud, and cold, making outdoor adventures more comfortable. Raincoats can prevent chills in dogs with thin coats or breeds sensitive to cold, and keep your dog clean during muddy walks, saving you the hassle of post-walk cleanups.

When choosing a raincoat, consider your dog's size, the climate, and the coat's features. Measure your dog accurately to ensure a good fit. If you live in a region with heavy rainfall, opt for a fully waterproof jacket. Look for features like ease of use, visibility enhancements, and layering possibilities. At K9 Active, we offer a variety of raincoats to suit all needs.

Key features to look for include waterproof material, ease of use, visibility features like reflective accents, and the ability to layer with other insulating products. Some raincoats, like the Ruffwear Sun Shower Dog Rain Jacket, also offer windproof fabric and compatibility with harnesses via a harness zip or flap.

A dog raincoat should fit snugly but not too tightly. It should cover your dog's back and belly, protecting them from the elements. Most raincoats have adjustable straps for a custom fit and can even feature pull cords to adjust the back length for in between sizes. Always refer to the manufacturer's size guide and measure your dog accurately before purchase.

To measure your dog for a raincoat, you'll need to measure their length (from the base of the neck to the base of the tail), their chest girth (around the widest part of their chest), and their neck circumference. Not all manufacturers require all three measurements but these are the three most common required. Always use a flexible measuring tape and ensure your dog is standing up in a natural position.

Most dog raincoats are machine washable, making them easy to clean after muddy walks. However, always check the care label or product description before washing. Some raincoats may require gentle cycle washing or air drying. In most cases it is also recomended not to use fabric softners as this may degrade the waterproof coating applied to your dog jacket.

Yes, a dog raincoat can be worn in winter, especially if it's waterproof and windproof. Some raincoats can be layered with other insulating products for added warmth. For example, the Ruffwear Cloud Chaser has a fleece lining that holds heat comfortably. For longer haired breeds a dog overall such as the Rukka Protect Overall will give maximum protection against the mud, rain and snow.

The frequency of cleaning your dog's raincoat depends on how often it's used and how dirty it gets. As a general rule, cleaning it after every few uses or when it's visibly dirty is a good practice. Always follow the manufacturer's care instructions to maintain the longevity of the raincoat.
