Dog coat skeptic? Or not sure where to start? We answer all your "why use a dog coat" related questions!


Dog coats can provide your dog with added warmth and protection while out on a walk during the cooler winter months.

There are several factors to consider when choosing a dog coat: the breed of dog, where you live, and your lifestyle; many owners invest in a dog coat to shield them from the rain, snow, sleet and harsh wind.

Dog coats with reflective properties are great for early or late walks as they provide added visibility which is an important safety factor at any time of year, but particularly during the winter.


When choosing a dog coat, it is important to factor in your lifestyle and budget. Identifying key features that you would benefit from is a great starting point. If you are looking for a coat that has lasting durability and a warm polyfill then a dog coat such as the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Premier Free Deluxe Parka is a great option.

Selecting the weight of your dog coat is based on your personal preference. Depending on where you live, the weather may be a contributing factor to the type of dog coat you choose to purchase. Owners who have dogs with a thick or double coat may be more inclined to choose a lighter weight option. However, if you live in a climate with cold winters, even a little polyfill in a coat can provide your dog added warmth and protection.

The WeatherBeeta Green Tec 900d dog coat offers the perfect versatility – available in medium with 220g of polyfill, and Lite with 50g of polyfill. Each option provides a waterproof and breathable 900D PCR outer, a strong 150 denier Diamond Weave Lining, a wrap-around freedom front with touch tape closure, and the all-important reflective piping for added safety. What’s more, each Green-Tec dog coat saves approximately 19 plastic bottles from going into the landfill or ocean.
