Hurtta Ultimate Warmer

Boy it’s freezing outside and we’re sure your dog thinks so too. Luckily, Hurtta has designed and recently released to the U.S. the Ultimate Warmer Dog Jacket. It’s turned into a best seller with many of their customers from Alaska to Maine declaring it as “the best all-weather protecting dog-coat on the market”.

The Ultimate Warmer Dog Jacket provides your dog extreme protection and thermal insulation for extended outdoor activities in cold conditions. The material has been laminated with a waterproof and breathable Houndtex® membrane to keep your dog dry and warm. The high collar, protective front and long rear hem protect your dog’s most important muscle groups, neck and chest. Made from smooth and soundless material, the jacket allows complete freedom of movement.

The back of the product has a leash opening for collar or harness attachment. Efficient 3M reflectors have been positioned on various parts of the jacket for increased visibility.

It is particularly well suited to training and active working dogs, when long-term exposure to the cold in winter cannot be avoided.

Dog Suits for Fall/Winter

Zippy Cozy Dog SuitsWith fall having started and winter on it’s heals, it’s time to get out your dog’s wet & winter wear and perhaps upgrade to a new dog jacket / suit. Zippy Dynamics makes some of the best dog suits in the industry. What we love about them most is that they don’t just cover the body/girth of your dog, but also the legs and arms. This is particularly helpful if your dog easily gets dirty (e.g. they’re low to the ground or have a propensity for rolling around in the mud).

Zippy Classy Dog SuitsOur dog, Kobi, is white, so when it’s raining outside he gets what we call the “Oreo effect” – the top half of him is white and the bottom half of him is black, like an opened Oreo cookie. The Zippy Dynamics suit is able to cover his whole body so we don’t have to give him a bath every time we take him out for a walk, thus saves us time and Kobi’s happy too since he’s not a fan of baths.

red dog suitWe’re fans of the Zippy Dynamics dog suits because they have a unique fit due to the adjustable cords and elastic inserts in key areas that guarantee a full range of motion. We find that there are many dog jackets that don’t fit very well so we appreciate the customization this dog suit provides.

Zippy Dog SuitsThe Zippy Dynamics dog suits are also lightweight, breathable and water resistant. The main zipper is on the back and there is a zipper on each pant leg. We definitely prefer to have a zipper on the back rather than on the bottom because it’s easier to dress our dog and keep things clean.

Last but not least, we love the sporty, modern style of these dog suits!

Amazing New Dog Suit / Dog Jacket Collection

red dog suit At the New York Pet Fashion show, we discovered a new company,
Zippy Dynamics that makes excellent dog coats / dog suits. We were first attracted to them because of their sporty, modern style. We also loved the fact that their dog jackets don’t just cover the body/girth of the dog, but also the legs and arms. This is particularly helpful if your dog easily gets dirty, especially if they’re low to the ground. Our dog is white, so this is really a problem when it’s raining outside.

modern dog suitZippy Dynamics was conceived by Alex Rabinovich and inspired by Max, their three year old adorable miniature poodle, who is modeling the suits here. Max is very energetic and loves exploring all sorts of different environments, from the sidewalk to sandy beaches. Alex lets him let run free outside (where it’s safely allowed) and while Max has lots of fun, he gets very dirty, very quickly.

Dog Suit with ScarfBecause Max has black hair, you might think he’d be able to get away with being a bit dirty. However, while you might not see it on Max, you will see the couch and floors get dirty when Max starts to run around in the house. So Alex was left with the hassle of cleaning Max after these outdoor adventures and it sparked the idea for a line of full body dog clothing.

Grey Dog SuitAlex with the help of his two sons, David and Ilya, and partner Paul Cantor, developed the Zippy Dynamics brand. They’ve worked together every step of the way from creating the company’s logo to building a fully functional e-commerce website. It resulted in them developing a product that would not only save them time and energy, but would also protect dogs from the elements. We love their dog suits and now carry them in our shop.

The Zippy Dynamics dog suit is designed to give dogs a unique combination of style, comfort, and protection. The dog suit does not compress or cause discomfort to the dog’s body or fur. The main zipper is on the back of the suit and zippers on each pant leg allow dog owners to easily place their dog into the suit.

What’s unique is the integrated adjustable cord system (ACS) that gives dog owners the ability to adjust the length of the body and pant legs, making it fully protective and convenient to wear. The elastic insert system (EIS), is cleverly incorporated into specific areas of the design, allows for flexibility and freedom of movement.

The true full-body design keeps the dog warm, dry, and free of dirt from the neck to the very bottom of the legs. The features combine to provide functionality and give the suit a modern, sporty, appearance.

 

Hurtta – Amazing Dog Jackets and Outerwear

Hurtta has top quality dog jackets and outerwear. Dogsized recently had the pleasure of speaking with Kim Peschardt, who runs Hurtta North America, to get an exclusive scoop on the Hurtta brand.

hurtta dog jacketHurtta started about 16 years ago in Finland. It was originally just a retailer for dog supplies, until one day the Finnish Army asked them if they could develop a jacket for their K9 dogs. These K9s needed extremely warm jackets because they spent most of their time still and attentively observing until they received a command into action. As you can imagine, it can get exceptionally cold in Finland, especially in the winter. So Hurtta developed very high quality dog coats which kept the K9s very warm and allowed them to still have great movement. The Finnish Army loved the Hurtta jacket and decided to order them for their K9s. Soon the word of these high quality dog jackets spread and Finnish law enforcement and search & rescue operations began purchasing Hurtta jackets for their dogs.

hurtta dog jacketToday, Hurtta dog jackets and outerwear is sold around the globe in over 30 countries. Surprisingly, they only entered into the North American market in 2011 and was one of the last global markets Hurtta entered into.

It order to ensure dogs are properly fitted, over 5,000 dogs are measured to make sure that their products fit perfectly for numerous dogs and breeds. And as breeds constantly develop, measurements are taken regularly during the year. Different collections are designed for different kinds of conditions and seasons. Hurtta does not only protect from cold and snow, but also from rain, mud and other extreme conditions.

hurtta dog jacketRenowned for their top quality and high functioning dog apparel, a third of Hurtta’s products sold in the U.S. are sold via outdoor adventure stores (e.g. REI and Eastern Mountain). The ultimate goal of Hurtta is to better understand the everyday life of the dogs and how to make exercise and hobbies more fun and easy.

All Hurtta products are easy to clean and machine washable. They also have high quality 3M reflectors and very durable materials. They even ensure that the fabrics are silent when used to not disturb the dog. All product specifications have been designed and developed for the dog’s comfort.

We’re seriously impressed, so we added Hurtta as a new brand in our shop. With winter on its way, it’s time to check out Hurtta.
