Animate dog rain coats -
the last word in canine luxury!
For a couple of years we've been selling the best dog life jackets on the internet.
We decided to go in search of the very best dog rain coats we could find -
and we found these sensational value-for-money coats!
Our lab Phoebe in her 24 inch (60 cms) 'Jade' rain coat.
The waterproof Animate Garnet (burgundy colour over black), Sapphire (sky blue over black), Jade (emerald green over emerald green) and Azurite (royal blue over black) coats are perfect for use on not only all dogs during the warmer months of the year but also on dogs which don't need extra padding during the colder months.
Manufactured in a soft-touch rain-proof material, Animate rain coats are designed to take care of the welfare of your dog.
The outer material is manufactured from 100% 'Breathe-time' nylon, whilst the soft inner lining is 100% cotton/polyester. Should the inner lining become wet, it can be dried out far faster than an equivalent fleece lining.
Animate coats can be wipe-cleaned using a damp cloth and are all fully machine washable.
The 'Breathe-time' fabric used in Animate coats is produced using hi-tech processes to achieve water and wind resistance (to keep adverse weather out) together with high moisture permeability (to let the dog's natural vapour out) whilst maintaining a cosy, soft-touch feeling, ensuring the jacket is not only extremely purposeful but also very comfortable to wear. 'Breathe-time' also maintains the animal's natural body temperature whilst performing outdoor activities; with exterior temperatures ranging anywhere between the extremes of -20 degrees to +45 degrees the 'Breathe-time' fabric will maintain a pleasing temperature for your dog.
The huge amount of adjustment available on each size of coat means that problems associated with fitting around the girth are very rarely encountered.
For on-going security, on the inside of each coat is stitched a discreet 'owner' label.
Every Animate coat is supplied in its own PVC zip and handled bag - great for storing the coat when not in use.
To fit these coats, fasten one velcro covered strap at the front and fasten the two velcro straps which loop around the dog's body (only one strap on the smaller sizes). Finally loop one of the elasticated loops around each rear leg (this stops the coat swiveling or riding up).
The collar flap on these coats can be worn up (offering additional protection from wind and rain) or down and incorporates a tailored slit through which a lead can be readily led.

The Animate rain coats' fabric contains a reflective quality, making it immediately visible in car headlights. The photo above shows the pleasingly patterned fabric.
Animate rain coats are available in a range of sizes in 2" (5cms) increments.
To identify the correct size coat for your dog measure from the base of the neck (a little below where you'd normally fit a collar) to the start of the tail; the correct size coat will generally be the first coat size which is as long as, or failing that longer than, the dog's back.
As the size of the dog increases, so the size of the jacket becomes less critical.
For example, if the dog's back measures 9" (23cms) the size of coat usually offering the best fit will be the 10" (25cms) size.
However, if the dog's back measures 21" (53cms) although the optimum size coat will be the 22" (55cms) size, both the 20" (50cms) and 24" (60cms) size coats will usually offer a perfectly acceptable fit.
If you buy the wrong size we'll be happy to exchange it.

We try to keep a stock of all sizes and despatch on the day of order - but with such a large range it's inevitable that from time to time we'll run out of a particular size and need a few days to obtain more stock; if we find ourselves in that situation on your order please bear with us - if you look at our feedback you'll see that we certainly don't keep our customers hanging around!
If you buy the wrong size, the coat can be returned within 7 days of receipt for a size exchange. The returned item must be returned in new condition complete with original tags and packaging. You pay the postage to us and take responsibility for it arriving with us, together with the postage to ship the exchanged coat. We will provide any refund difference (which will be in pounds sterling) when we mail the exchange item. Please don't send it back with evidence of dog hairs (to keep the dog hairs away, place a sheet of paper under the coat until you're sure you're keeping it).

Please, no laughing at the model used on this page! We started out trying to photograph all the coats on our 'real' labrador Phoebe, but it was taking forever and we were getting nowhere (never work with children or animals!) so we reverted to a model.
