Raincoat Suggestions Please

I've been trying to find a raincoat for Willow. It's hard to find one that fits as she has the typical long body but is so small around the chest. I want something fairly lightweight but waterproof, like a poncho or something similar. She doesn't like anything with a hood. I read the post about the Hurtta brand and looked the up on Amazon. They seem awfully expensive. I also didn't find a sizing chart. Any other suggestions?

Martha Stewart makes poncho style dog raincoats. If you can't find them through Petsmart I know they have them on Ebay.

Nickie has a light weight raincoat that works fine for him here in the southwest except in our extremely hot summers. We got it a couple years ago at Petco. It does have a hood, but he usually manages to shake that off his head. FabDog medium. He's 13 lbs. We originally got a cute lightweight yellow one made by a different company, but it was too small. Our problem with coats is that nearly all of them are too heavy and warm for our climate. The photo is from 2013 when we first got it.

I have a Chilly Dog raincoat for Riley. I like it a lot. It's longer to fit him and I can fasten it tighter around his belly so it fits well. I bought it thru the Havanese Rescue Auction, so I don't know the real price.

I picked up Chloe a raincoat from Petsmart ... velcro around neck and belly also has a hood - size med. It does the job.

Gracie has a Foggy Mountain Raincoat. It doesn't have a hood, but it does have a turn-up collar. I really like their coats, I think they are very well made. She has 3 of them. You can check them out at www.dogcoat.com

Here's a pic of the coat that Gracie has ...http://www.dogcoat.com/wp-content/up...ainredjoey.jpg

I'm pretty sure hers is a size 12, but you need to buy the daschound cut (or doxy cut), as they are smaller in the body to fit their narrow size. If you would like, I can try to take a pic later today of her in her coat so you can really see how it fits a Hav.

Thanks for your replies. Willow hates hoods. She'll twist her head around and try to grab it. I am going to be checking all all of your suggestions. I appreciate everyone's help.

We love Foggy Mountain too. My Hallie had a nice black one that kept her warm and dry and fit great. I'm not quite ready to try it on Sophie yet but hoping it will fit her.

Hallie is the 3rd dog down on this page, my beautiful blind girl, black and tan longhaired doxie <3
