Question Rain coats and umbrellas

I am looking for a raincoat for Benji and booties too. Any recommendations please? I personally love rain but Benji hates it. Not a good day today, it has been raining since last night.

Does anyone have this?

I've seen that before! It looks cool but I wonder really how well it would work? Rufus was a nightmare last week when we got that first rain! He would NOT go potty! He held it 19 hours! sigh. I was taking him out every hour and I tried every location possible. He was too freaked out by the rain to go. We had good luck since then, but I wonder just how it's gonna be when we are in the middle of winter with a driving rain.
I can't help much with the raincoats. We've tried four different ones and can't seem to find one that fits well.

Oh wow!! I want one hahaha!!!

Christy: I have that same problem. If I find a coat that covers Sierra's back all the way to the tail, then the part covering her chest and belly is usually too large!

My recommendation is: buy a big amount of stuff at Petedge and get this cute rain coat for dirt cheap! I saw the SAME EXACT one in a petstore for $15!

well...you know, I find it very difficult to find the perfect jacket for Sierra....

I want a coat that covers her whole back, her whole belly and chest, but still gives her a lot of freedom to run around in and it waterproof...

It seems that whenever I find something that covers well, de leg holes or sleeves are constructed in a way that she can't walk let alone RLH!! I once had a beautifull stuffed jeans jacket for her, but when I tried it on her, it was like she had a handicap!!

Also here there aren't many places who sell dog-clothes...there are many online clothes available but my experience is, you have to try it on!! I can't just order away and then send it all back....

Christy,
Benji is holding IT since morning. On one of the sides of our house just about 8-10" wide space remains dry along the walls, I took him there to see if he would go, but no success. He's graduated from piddle pads in his covered outdoor ex-pen so he won't use it. I know the raincoats aren't much help there but at least when I take him out, he won't be wet and shivering.

We had put up a temporary shade for Benji when we got him in Feb. He would do his business under it when it rained. You can use PVC pipes for the frame, tarp or heavy duty shower curtain to cover it. I am planning to put it up again.

Best, Poornima

Now that umbrella is an interesting concept. I got a cute yellow raincoat for Maddie, put it on her today (since its pouring outside), and she wouldn't move in it! I finally took it off, and she eventually did her business outside, but is soaking wet. She definitely does not like getting wet. Last week at agility, she performed so well (it was nice outside). She did the teeter totter, A frame, weave poles, jumps, etc. and had a great time. This week, the grass was wet from a recent rain, and she refused to walk on it! She didn't want to jump, do the weave poles, nada because she'd have to walk on the wet grass. She's not a "girly girl", but she sure doesn't want her little footsies to get wet. I'm not looking forward to the rainy winter either.

Hi Suuske,
Thanks for the link! I agree, I want a coat that will cover the top and the belly.

Hi Jeanne,
Like sister like brother, eh? I haven't gone out to get the raincoat this morning because I have been busy taking Benji out to piddle! It's too early to

How nice that you are taking Maddie for agility. How often do you go?

Best, Poornima

I LOVE this one! It's very nicely sewn too. However..I did just as you said and made a huge order LOL and bought the raincoat. I bought it to fit lengthwise from neck to tail, but then the tummy strap runs out of velcro and wraps around him double! Then the front part of the bib hangs just barely off the ground when he walks. I would have to alter it, to make it fit.
