product information

These lightweight waterproof dog raincoats have an Airtex lining instead of fleece so are perfect for dogs who don't need extra warmth on walks. They feature chest coverage so your dog's back and chest is protected from mud and rain. Available in standard or made to measure sizes for a perfect fit for all dogs.

This lightweight lining-free coat is perfect for dogs who like to be protected from the rain but don't want or need an extra layer. The thicker, warmer lining in many dog coats can make some dogs hot and uncomfortable. If your dog just wants a lightweight raincoat to keep them dry in wet weather, this is the coat for them.

These coats are made from an extremely soft and waterproof coated microfibre and shaped at the rear to follow the contours of your dog. The inner lining is a lightweight, breathable black Airtex, making this possibly the best dog raincoat ever made. Woof!

Each coat is handmade in the UK with great care and beautifully finished in every detail.

lightweight waterproof dog coat with harness hole

Features include:

  • Soft waterproof and breathable sportswear fabric
  • Breathable lightweight Airtex lining
  • Protective chest coverage
  • Clever front leg design for freedom of movement
  • Shaped at the rear to follow the contours of your dog
  • Zipped harness hole
  • Reflective strips for low light visibility
  • Adjustable girth strap with buckle
  • Colour co-ordinated covered back leg straps
  • Machine washable

The outer peached coated microfibre (the material feels like the skin of a peach) is a light technical sportswear fabric which is both waterproof and breathable. Perfect for those romps in the great outside, whatever the weather. Stops your dog getting wet on rainy days whilst the sports fabric and Airtex remains breathable for your dog's comfort and health.

Three wide reflective strips aid visibility in low light and add that all important safety feature.

The coat slips over your dog's head and a small elasticated v-neck section makes it easier to put on and take off whilst also giving a more comfortable fit. It has an underbelly strap to keep your dog's chest nice and dry. The coat fastens with an adjustable strap and buckle that goes around the dog's middle. The collar of the coat can be folded down or up against the dog's neck for extra protection. The back of the coat features a zipped harness hole.

The colour co-ordinated elastic leg straps can be used to keep the coat in place. This is especially useful on windy days. The straps are made from the same peached fabric as the main body of the coat so it doesn't catch on your dog's fur.

Choose from red, royal blue, black or pink.

Machine washable at 40 degrees. Do not use fabric conditioners or softeners as this can affect the waterproof properties of the microfibre outer. Tumble drying is not recommended and do not iron.

Please measure your dog to get the correct fit. The measuring guide below will help you take the correct measurements. If none of the standard sizes are quite right for your dog, you can choose the bespoke option from the size drop-down box and enter your dog's measurements so the coat can be made especially for them.

Use a soft tape measure and measure your dog when they are standing up.

Length - Measure from the base of the dog's neck to the base of the tail.

Girth - Measure around your dog's middle, approx halfway between the front and back legs.

Neck - If you are also taking a neck measurement, measure the circumference of the neck at the widest part.

* Large Wide is suitable for stockier bodies while Large Deep is suitable for deep chests.

Please note - returns or exchanges cannot be accepted for bespoke coats (where you have supplied measurements and the coat has been made to fit your dog). Please measure carefully and state the measurements in centimetres (cm).

Our retriever hates it.....
Saturday, 21 September 2019  |  Tina

This coat is wonderful, our retriever doesn’t like to have any clothing on her so I had to find a waterproof yet lightweight coat in her size. That may sound simple enough but usually you find it doesn’t fit right here n there. Dfordog offer the perfect service and product. The coat is all that I need for our dramatic girl, the material is soft to touch, waterproof and fits well, even the leg straps are generous enough that Luna didn’t make a fuss over once. Perfect. Thank you dfordog!

Light weight raincoat
Thursday, 29 August 2019  |  Julie

The raincoat we purchased was an excellent fit and the buckle fastening is great as most of the coats we have just slide off him when he’s running off lead. He doesn’t mind the leg straps at the back as they are soft which is a bonus as he hated the leg straps in his other coat hence why it slid off him. All other coats are either to long in the back or to short so sending in the actual measurements was a fab idea. Really well done. We’ll be back for the heavier one for the real cold months.

Best Ever
Friday, 16 August 2019  |  Helen

Over the years I have bought many dogs coats all of which rarely fitted properly. I was therefore pleased to find a company that could offer bespoke. Yes, maybe slightly more expensive but worth every penny.

Ill fitting, appalling customer service
Monday, 10 June 2019  |  Olivia

I ordered this jacket and was very disappointed when it arrived as it was tight around my dog's neck. I double checked the initial measurement I had given of 38cms at the widest part of her neck and sure enough this was correct. I emailed the company and asked if I could send it back so they could let the neck out by a few cms. From the outset the owner was hostile and totally unhelpful. I was told I would have to pay for this alteration, or even more likely I would have to pay for it to be completely re-made (which was ridiculous!). For a tailor made jacket you would expect it to fit your dog perfectly, but that certainly wasn't the case. I would have been willing to send the jacket back to have it adjusted (it was a quick and easy job), but having to pay more, when it was not my fault in the first place, seemed totally unfair. 

As a side note, I was also surprised to find out that the jacket does not come with a harness hole. I mentioned this to the owner and was told it wasnt necessary and that the harness had to be worn over the jacket. In my opinion this completely defeats the purpose as the harness will get soaking wet in the rain. I pointed out that it would be helpful if it was mentioned that the jacket does not have this feature on the website description to avoid disappointment. In response I was told I should have emailed them and explicitly asked before purchasing. Well, this never crossed my mind! Every dog jacket I've ever bought has a harness hole and to me it is a very standard feature (I'm sure I'm not alone). Either way, it would have been more encouraging if this feedback had been positively taken on board. Instead, and indicative of my entire experience with this company, it was completely dismissed. 

I have since gone to the local tailor and had the neck fixed and had a harness hole added. The whole thing took less than an hour. However, it did cost me even more money. Next time I will buy from a local pet shop! Not worth the money, headache or time I had to wait. Customer service is appalling.

D for Dog says:

Dear Olivia, thank you for your review. Your garment was made exactly to your specifications and within the time frame stated. If for some reason the garment had not been made to the specifications given, we would of course have corrected this free of charge. I am not sure why, in your review, you are now saying you measured your dog's neck again and it was correct. This is not what happened. We politely asked you 3 times to please remeasure your dog's neck and you refused each time. We were clear and polite in all our emails and were more than willing to make adjustments to the garment for you if the error had been ours. Regarding the harness hole, this garment does not include one and yes, it is best to check first if you are unsure.

We are pleased with the coat we requested to be made to our requirements as our dog is not a regular size

I was after a lightweight dog coat that fully covered my dog without riding up and did not make him too hot. This coat is exactly what I was looking for. The loops for his legs are great! Thank you!

Just what i have been looking for
Sunday, 13 January 2019  |  Christine

The bespoke coat is a perfect fit. I wanted a lightweight coat for my cocker spaniel to wear in wet weather but not be too warm. Very impressed with quality and look of coat.

Very happy indeed with our custom made purchase from DforDog. Fits perfectly and we feel the rainproof dog jackets are of very good quality. We would definitely use DforDog again in the future.

Order a blue and a red in intermediate for a cocker and a springer spaniel. Sizes are good (was a little nervous of my measurements due to no return policy on made to order items - which is understandable). They look nice a comfortable and don't seem to hinder movement. Will test thoroughly in the rain later this evening!

Very pleased with this product. Just what I have been looking for. More to the point Billy is very pleased to wear it and finds it comfortable to be out walking in the rain now. Thank you.
