If you want to avoid this scenario, luckily, there are plenty of good quality rain dog coats for winter available for sale. One of the best comes from Foggy Mountain and is made from waterproof Denier fabric lined with waterproof cotton. It is adjustable with Velcro at the front and can fit a wide variety of dog breeds.
2. Dogrich Siberian Winter Dog Coat
Designed by Emanuele Bianchi, this model of dog coats for winter is both fashionable and functional. It will keep doggie warm, while also make it easy for you, the owner, to handle the clothed dog. The cut features a finished collar ring, which will enable you to easily manage the leash situation. In case the weather gets really cold, you can have the dog put the hood on, while the adjustable waist will provide a good, snug fit.
3. The Citta Slicker
Dog coats for winter have never been trendier than the Citta Slicker, which is great for places where the cold season mostly brings annoying rainfall. The reflective trim will make your dog be the most stylish one at the dog park, while also keeping out the wind and the water. To boot, the coat is lined with cotton, for a lightweight, comfortable feel. It comes in the two fiercely cool options of bronze snake or black cobra!
4. Foggy Mountain Nylon Turnout
Dog coats for winter which were initially designed for horses will definitely provide your pooch with a maximum amount of thermal comfort. The Nylon Turnout from Foggy Mountain is made with a tough nylon shell that keeps wind and water at bay. The polyfill insulation and plush fleece lining will keep doggie warm and comfy. To boot, the streamlined design will make sure the dog can run at play at will, without you having to worry that the coat will fall off.
5. Reversible Puffer Parka
If you want your pooches to stay both warm and stylish, spring for these dog coats for winters—the Reversible Puffer Parka. They will provide not one awesome look, but two, a cool-looking ruched bubble design and a very trendy chic faux fur collar. You can choose either the pink version or the black licorice model, which will both revere to the interior lined with a white polka dotted pattern.
6. Foggy Mountain Plaid Turnout
Plaid seems to be the preferred pattern for dog coats for winter, and this design from Foggy Mountain confirms the hypothesis. It is available in a wide variety of colors and models and is basically structured similarly to the Nylon Turnout from the same producer. The poyfill insulation and fleece lining will keep the dog warm, while the form-fitting design will allow even the most active dog to go on playing as if they were wearing nothing at all.
7. Quilted Dog Parka
Does your pooch hate winter? Well, this will no longer be the case once you have them put on the Quilted Dog Parka and then let them loose to play in the snow. It is extremely cute, with the quilted exterior and fleece lined interior, as well as the stylish hood that makes any weather conditions, no matter how harsh, manageable. The Velcro straps are adjustable, the silver buttons are oh-so trendy, while the leash opening will make sure the dog-walker doesn’t have an unnecessarily hard time because of doggy’s new outfit.
8. The Elizabeth Coat
This is one of the models of dog coats for winter that is best suited for areas where the winters are warm… and the dogs are as chic as chic can be. It comes in a soft ivory cotton-wool blend, trimmed with elegant white lace, and enclosed with Velcro. Note the cute little pink flower details, that will melt any fashionista’s heart, be they two- or four-legged.
9. Foggy Mountain Sunggler Coat
What do you think of when you heard the word snuggler? The team at Foggy Mountain apparently thought of dog coats for winter that are made of soft and snuggly plush fleece. This model is also very easy to take off or put on, thanks to the sewn-close front. The fleece belly flap is secured on one side with Velcro and can also be worn underneath a waterproof dog coat, for extra warmth in really cold weather.
10. Rock Star Parka
How cool would it be to deck your pup out in a parka that says “Rock” in Gothic typeface on the back? There aren’t many dog coats for winter out there that are more awesome than this! Priced at only $45, the model features a water and wind repellant exterior, as well as a Velcro closure stripe from neck to belly, in order to make sure that your dog is as covered as covered can be. It’s lined with polyfill for warmth, and the inscription on the back is stylin’ in silver, studs and pyramid stud details.
