    For those who take their dogs away with them in the Motorhome, do you use dog coats, especially in wet weather?

    Ha ha! Was thinking more about keeping them dry on wet days. I know a lot of COCKERPOO owners swear by the equafleece coats. Only four wet feet and a head to dry.

    I was sceptical about them but then we tried one and we're converted. The main point is the dog is mostly dry, other than feet, when you get back and take the coat off. I don't think the dog notices the benefit, but the owners do!

    We've got two border terriers. The eldest one has worn a rain coat in the past. But she's 15 now and doesn't walk that much. The younger one ,5, just stands there. With a sad look.
    Open legged, as if to say " get it off me"

    We have coats for our three Shi Tzus which combine a harness. Equafleece that we had sagged and became very wet and grubby.

    I bought a ThreePeaks coat from Pets at Home, it was approx £9, keeps my Jack Russell warm and dry, it's easy to get on. Recommended.

    our three have very short coats being staffies. so we put them in good quality coats in the freezing cold and when its pouring with rain. avoids the stink of wet dog in the van too which is a real bonus when added to less wet dog towels to dry out

    it helps that my mrs was bought up in the horsey set, so chose weatherbeater coats as the best available. virtually bombproof (well staffie proof, which is nearly the same) sensible prices too at our local equine and country store (£15 each)

    Saw a program a few weeks ago, it was about bespoke dog coats. £185 for a small dog . What's wrong with a Tesco bag with leg holes cut out . ;)

    ... you've forgot about the head and bum holes!!!! Lack of the former could make the dog a bit hot and bothered, lack of the latter could make you very hot and bothered when you have to clear up the mess inside!!!! :LOL:

    Of our 3 dogs, our little Lily (6 yr old Patterdale Terrier) is quite happy with a coat or anything else for that matter as she was a kiddies dog previously who obviously dressed her up all the time! Our Romy (11 yr old cross staffie/greyhound) tolerates a coat but doesn't really like it. Our Tazzy (3 yr old cross jackie/chihuahua) hates having anything on here ... she just stand there and refuses to move ... at all ... not even for food ... just giving us the evil eye ... you'd never believe how much of a disgusted look she can give when she's such a cutie normally!!!

    No Sorry
    Lack of the former (ie head) means a dead dog
    lack of the latter (bumhole) means an exploding dog.

    I think if we put Cayley in a coat she would drown as she's a Labrador and loves swimming.
