If you thought dog coats and jackets were for Winter only then glance out of the window and remind yourself that the great British summertime is not always so great. For times of inclement weather like the sudden temperature drops, mega downpours and high winds we’ve seen over the past few weeks, I recommend having a lightweight number in your dog’s petwear arsenal to tackle the erratic weather.
Mirroring the summer staples I have hanging on my rail, I share the first of two Barkarama-recommended dog jackets capable of dealing with weather-dictated pawdrobe conundrums. Kicking things off is this urban street pup style wind dog coat, which will ensure your pooch is ready to face gusts with fashion gusto. Scroll to the end for product links.
BASIL WEARS: I Love My Dog Wind Jacket in Red – sporty meets urban this zippy little number that will add serious points to your dog’s street cred when the temperature suddenly drops or the wind picks up. Featuring a zip up front, hood and elasticated sleeves, it’s lined with super soft grey jersey cotton for warmth against cold gusts. It also has a back pouch, which doubles to fold neatly into its own convenient carry bag making it a great buy for busy commuter pups and adventurers. Priced £65 from Leadthewalk.com.
