Hi, looking ahead to the winter and thinking about getting a dog coat for when out on walks. Anybody recommend where to go? I need one that I can use with the mekuti harness/double ended lead.

I have a 'Blanket' (its a coat) made by 'Rambo Horseware', Moo has had it for 2 years and the velcro is finally going, but its water resistant, warm, wipes clean and drys very quickly, just pop it into google Smile

Thanks, had a look at these, but doesn't say they have the slits in the top. Need to be able to use it with the harness - one end of lead on top of harness and other end goes through eye at front of harness. Don't really want to put the harness on top of the coat.

I HAVE to use a harness - otherwise he takes me for a walk. Apart from a head halti, I have found the mekuti harness to work really well - gives you a lot more control.

Rocky has a Muddypaws coat that we use in the wintertime. Unfortunately it doesn't have a harness slot or anything but we could put the harness on over the coat, have you thought of trying this too.

The only thing I use is a hoody for really cold nights as the kitchen where Dempsey sleeps isn't heated.

He does have a raincoat, but I don't use a harness, so it's just an ordinary one.

A lot of the dogs I see round here in a harness/coat combination have the harness over the coat, maybe that would work for you?

We put the harness over the coat , much simpler and gives you a better choice of coats

i always put my dogs harness on over their coats, if the coat fits properly there isn't a problem. Equafleece dog coats are really good, they let the dogs run free without any danger of them coming off. There are various styles to suit the dog's needs. I will be buying one for my foster dog, as he is a thin coated Lurcher he will need one. I have friends who use them, the dogs go swimming in them, the dogs are still warm when they are wet but are not heavy with water.

I put Blu's harness on over his Parker, makes him look like he has a parachute on but works really well, the coat has a slit for the collar but I don't use a lead on his collar, just his harness. We do have a different harness for when he wears his coat, he uses a cosydogs fleece harness for just the harness and a leather/nylon harness for when he wears his coat.
