Why This Dog Mom Made The Decision to Get a Dog Raincoat

When it rains in NYC, our dog, who is blond, can get super dirty. I call it the "half Oreo effect" as he ends up black on the bottom half and white on the top half. We've used various raincoats, but decided to get a custom dog raincoat for Kobi because none of his raincoats gave him full neck to paw coverage.

We researched for a while and found a link on Etsy that took us to Custom-Made 4U. There we entered in all of Kobi's measurements, picked out a style plus colors and ordered the custom dog raincoat for Kobi.

Julija from Custom-Made 4U, emailed us back to confirm our order and answer our questions. In a few weeks, we received the raincoat (from Lithuania) and we are super happy with it! We always get stopped of the street when Kobi is wearing his custom dog raincoat. Best of all, it's well made and keeps him very clean from neck to paw - no more "half Oreo effect" when it rains!
