How do I measure my dog for a coat?
Please see our measurement guidelines and also refer to the sizing table below the product description. This describes how to measure the dog from the base of the neck to base of the tail and you will choose this size coat. If your measurement is in between sizes, we recommend going down to the smaller size. Please do not use another dog coat manufacturer’s sizing as their measurements may differ. The total length of the coat will be longer than the size coat (in inches) that you need to order, this is to allow for the dog’s chest and overhang at the rear.
Do your coats have a hole for the harness to attach to a lead?
Out coats do not have a hole for harness attachment as this reduces the waterproofing effect. A harness can be worn over the coat if used.
Do your muzzles come in different sizes?
Each of our muzzles is a set size, please refer to the product description for the dimensions of each muzzle.
Can you feed treats through your muzzles?
Yes, treats can be popped through the muzzle.
Can my dog drink when wearing one of your muzzles?
How do I choose the correct size muzzle?
Please refer to the product description for the dimensions of each muzzle and use this information to gauge the correct size for your dog by measuring his / her nose.
