Where To Measure Your Dog for a Dog Raincoat
A dog raincoat is a coat that is worn by a dog to protect it from the rain. It is important to size your dog for a dog raincoat so that it will be comfortable and effective in keeping your dog dry.
The first step in sizing your dog for a dog raincoat is to measure your dog’s length. To do this, measure from the base of your dog‘s neck to the base of their tail. Once you have this measurement, add 2-3 inches to account for movement and fur.
The next step in sizing your dog for a dog raincoat is to measure your dog’s girth. This is the measurement around your dog‘s chest, just behind their front legs. Once you have this measurement, add 2-3 inches to account for movement and fur.
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!
