The UK can get pretty chilly during winter, and it can also be cold enough to still wear a big coat during summer if you are out early morning or late at night.
You will layer up and put your jumper, coat, scarf and gloves on, but to ensure your pup also doesn’t get cold while avoiding the difficult layers, you need a thick coat made for harsh conditions.
Hurtta is a big brand when it comes to combatting the elements. The Expedition Parka has been developed with short-haired dogs and dogs without an undercoat in mind but is good for any breed in colder conditions.
The surface is water-resistant, which is handy as rain and water can also further make your dog cold. With a collar that can go right up around their neck, there are no gaps to allow cold air in, but it still gives them their full range of motion.
It has reflectors so you can be seen in low light conditions, and a buckle belt can secure it properly around your dog’s body. There is a harness hole for the lead, and you even get an integrated harness in the smallest two sizes.
This coat isn’t just for dogs who feel the coat either – if they enjoy agility training, use it to keep them warm after exercise.
