PostSubject: Waterproof coat   Tue 28 Jan 2014, 8:38 am

Does anyone have any suggestions for a waterproof coat for Ruby?
It was raining really hard this morning so I used the 'waterproof' top layer of her Danish Coat

http://www.seapets.co.uk/products/dog-supplies/dog-care/dog-coats/all-weather-dog-coats/danish-design-dog-coat-ultimate-2-in-1-orange-25cm-10in.html

It didn't fit her properly without the fleece lining, kept slipping backwards as she has no neck/shoulders but wide ribs. It does this a bit with the lining but not enough to bother her or me.

She wasn't happy, so took it off and it was soaking underneath.

Maybe I'm suffering from this and she doesn't need anything....

I have the Danish one but they don't seem much cop without the inner liner, I have never used coats that much but I would go with what Claire recommends as she has quite a lot of experience with coats and jumpers etc x

I suppose it may depend on budge?

If you just want an all round waterproof and warm coat I'd go for the Hurtta Winter Pro.
There's a guy on ebay that ships from japan that does Hurtta stuff and he'll give you a good deal.

i ordered a couple of things from him recently and they were much cheaper than the UK and came within a week x

The frost coat and ultimate warmer ones have a harness hold which works ok with a fleece harness, but to be honest if mine have a harness on I just put it on top x

Thats the one i was looking at the ultimate warmer but couldnt tel from the pics if it would line up , and like i said customer service was abit useless as wouldnt give me a rouhg idea of measurement , i think i may have to invest in one of those if his harness will be ok with it
