When the weather is as bad as it has been lately most of us will opt to stay indoors in the warm, however if you are a dog owner you probably don’t get that luxury and as much as we wrap up warm it is always worth considering your pets needs too.
The Ruffwear Vert Jacket is a waterproof and windproof jacket made for dogs of all shapes and sizes, it comes in sizes XXSmall all the way up to XLarge with a handy size guide on the website to help you out when ordering. It is available in two bright colours, Sockeye Red and Blue Atoll helping you spot them easily when they are off the lead. There is also reflective trim detailing which will be picked up by torches and headlights as well as a light loop for attachment point which can be one you already own, or you can look at getting the Beacon light from Ruffwear designed to work with the jacket. This shell jacket has a soft polyester fleecy lining with an anti-pilling coating and DWR finish to keep off the rain, however if pup likes to get a good workout, they won’t become too warm as the Vert remain breathable.
The leg loops can be used in particularly bad weather to keep the jacket in place and the wind out, there is a hole for the lead to be passed through which allows the Vert to be worn over most harnesses. The collar can be folded up to create a longer storm collar for further protection from the elements or folded back out of the way in calmer weather. Getting the jacket on the dog is made as simple as possible although we know some dogs just see this is as a big game, it has a relaxed fit with the release buckles located at the side rather than underneath. At the end of the walk if the Vert is dirty it can be put in the washing machine on a cold, gentle wash and then hung to dry ready for the next trip out. The Vert is a great choice for those dogs who simply won’t let the bad weather stop them from enjoying a good adventure. The extended length provides good coverage from neck all the way back to the hips keeping them toasty and dry, even if you are freezing and soaked. RRP £94.95
