My golden doodle has had multiple injuries and surgeries to her hind knees, so I was looking for a coat with legs to protect her knees during cold weather. This coat has been ideal, easy enough to put on, fits well and easy for her to wear. Definitely a great help to allow her to get out for walks in the cold without hurting her impaired knees.
Only after a few wears, the zipper went out. There is also a pretty bad tear in the seam from normal, indoor use.
My dog is a large whippet - 40 lbs, 22" long from withers, 26" chest. I ordered a 22L after reading other reviews. Despite the adjustment strings, it did not solve the sizing issue on his front half (but did make for a perfect fit for the waist). When my dog runs, it does not seem to bother him or affect his gait. The suit is thin, but seems to do an incredible job at trapping body heat. The material feels comfortable and rejects debris. My favorite aspect of the design is the back zipper, which allows for easy fitting and removal - no more uncomfortable gymnastics for the dog! So while I don't like how it looks, it allows him to do all the things dogs should be able to do and keeps him sufficiently warm while he does! Two hard feats for clothing to accomplish for the common sighthound.
I read some reviews so I sized up when I ordered and still the fit is tight. The zipper as mentioned in another review, pulls apart. This is thye second item I've bought that is Hurtta brand that did not fit properly after following the sizing instructions.
It seems very warm as an under layer. Its also very adjustable which is nice. It runs a little big I think But not the easiest thing in the world to put on. Especially on a fidgety younger dog. I was a bit confused & it took me a good 20 mins to get on her. The zipper is in the top of the dog which makes it difficult to keep each leg in the sleeve as your putting the other 4 legs in. Maybe I just need to get used to it & use it a few more times. The back legs seem like they may come loose & she'll step on them. I think I got a size too big but she's still young 1.5yrs so there is room to grow. Great as an underlayer. I would recommend if your dog can stand still while you figure it out & put each foot in. The dog seems comfortable in it & it's also stretchy
Put it on my 7 pound dog over a 2 week period to wear as a layer and zipper split last time he wore it. Was able to pull down but the zipper slider body and pull tab just zipped off and now it wont zip since I cant put it back together.
My girl is aging and has been an athlete all her life. I put this on her for a few hours each day and it seems to keep her muscles warm and happy. Great product
I measured my dog according to the instructions, and unfortunately it’s too small to zipper fully. I plan to size up next time.
Bought this for my border collie mix for transitional seasons and winter. He’s super lean, but very active so I needed something that would allow natural movement. I have yet to be disappointed with any purchases of Hurtta. I bought this a little bigger than recommended so he could grow into a bit, it was easy to temporarily alter with a few thread closures added where needed.
I bought this for my Smooth Fox Terrier to help keep her warm while inside but yet light enough to wear under her coat to go outside in extreme weather. It fits her quite well with the 3 adjustable pull cords for a custom fit! I bought 1 size up to help give her shoulder's freedom of movement as she hates to feel restricted in any way! She doesn't like sweaters for that very reason, they restrict her by virtue of the way Foxies are built. Also I love the long "gater" type neck covering that also adjusts to help keep her warm! Great one piece suit!!!
