If your dog is a constant companion on trails — even during winter’s cold, rain, and snow — a warm and sturdy dog coat is just the thing.
WeatherBeeta, a company that has set the standard for horse turnout blankets for 35 years, has turned its expertise to a line of dog coats that fit most pooches (coat sizes are available from 12 inches to 32 inches).
For winter days, consider the WeatherBeeta 420D Deluxe Fleece Lined Windbreaker. With its waterproof dernier outer, it has a warm boa fleece lining, fully wraps the chest and belly, protects your dog’s neck with a large collar and sports a leash hole. It comes in three color combinations. $34.99.
For warmer but still chilly weather, a version without fleece (420D Deluxe Lightweight Windbreaker) is available in two color combinations for $29.99. Visit weatherbeeta.com for more information.
To keep your pooch visible at all times during short winter days, you might prefer the WeatherBeeta 300D Deluxe Reflective Parka. The breathable 300 dernier outer repels water.
The coat has a 210T nylon lining, 220 grams of polyfill, and wraps fully around chest and belly. Wrapping straps are reflective. It comes in one color: Orange. $44.99.
A lightweight version, without polyfill, is $34.99. weatherbeeta.com.
