How to Measure, Fit & Care for Your WeatherBeeta Dog Coat

Whatever the weather, we have the right coat to protect your pup. Here's a guide to finding the right size, fitting your coat and how to care for the coat to make sure it keeps protecting your furry friend! 

Measuring Your Dog Coat

  1. Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail
  2. Take note of the number of centimetres this measures and match that size to the dog coat sizes available in the range. 
  3. Check with your leading retailer if you're unsure, and discuss taking your dog in to be fitted for their new coat

Fitting Your Dog Coat

  1. Lay the WeatherBeeta coat along your dog's back
  2. Slide it into the correct position on the dog
  3. Firstly do up the chest closure area for a snug fit (but not too tight) for complete protection
  4. Adjust and do up the belly strap to secure the cost around the dogs body (not too tight). It is essential that your dog's coat fits comfortably so they are able to still move freely and will be less likely to try and remove their coat

Caring For Your Dog Coat

  1. Remove excess dirt, mud and hair from the coat
  2. Remove all detergent build up from your detergent dispenser
  3. Place the coat in a mesh wash bag to contain all the straps and buckles protecting them from being damaged and protecting your machine
  4. Machine wash the coat on a gentle delicate cycle (front loading washer) using mild soap or a reputable and recommended coat cleaning wash (always follow the manufacturer's washing instructions)
  5. Do not use detergents or fabric conditioners as you risk compromising your WeatherBeeta's unique waterproof and breathable coating (on select coats)
  6. For best results, re-proof your outdoor coat to add durable water repellency and revitalise breathability. Use a reputable and recommended coat proofer (always follow the manufacturer's proofing instructions)
  7. Line dry your WeatherBeeta coat. DO NOT tumble dry

While all WeatherBeeta dog coats can be machine washed at home, if you are in any doubt, we recommend you seek out the local services of a professional washing business.
