product information

Highly visible dog warning coat for when you want or need to get a message across to other dog owners. Lightweight and comfortable jacket shaped garment with clear wording. Made from waterproof PU and printed with standard text from the list provided or a customised message of your choice.

Available in a choice of two high visibility (high-vis) colours or four standard colours. A great way to communicate a warning or message to other people while out and about and on dog walks.

dog warning message jacket

Perfect for dogs who are in training, have special needs, temperament issues, are recovering from an operation or injury, are shy or nervous, dogs with allergies or special dietary requirements who should not be fed, and so on.

Standard wording choices include:

No treats please
Please give me some space
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE
Back off please, I'm training
I'm nervous, please do not pat me
I'm a deaf dog
Visually Impaired
I need a forever home

Or select to have your own customised wording and type what you would like on your dog's coat.

These lightweight warning garments are light and roomy enough to be worn over a standard dog coat if your dog feels the cold and wears a jacket in the winter.

Quick and easy to put on. They have a wide neck and elastic at the front for an easy and comfortable fit. They have an elastic strap and clip buckle underneath to allow you to adjust the size depending on your dog’s girth. The elastic strap allows for a bit of movement which is particularly useful for dogs in post-operative recovery or for a bit of extra girth if wearing over a winter coat.

Printed on both sides along the length of the body.

Although we have been generous with the number of characters allowed, the more text you have the smaller the text will be. We do not advise more than 4-5 words in total. The maximum print area is 297mm wide, regardless of how big the coat size is. This means that on the XL and XXL sized jackets the text will look proportionally smaller than it does in the images shown, which are size Large or smaller.

Message clothing should not replace good dog training but they can be useful if your dog has specific issues or during a time in their life where they need a little good grace.

Sizing

The coat needs to sit straight along the middle part of your dog's back, so the fabric sits flat and the wording is not obscured by wrinkles or folds. For this reason they do not sit at the dog's neck - they sit lower than the neck/collar. Please measure your dog to get the correct fit. Measure along your dog's back as per the illustration, from the shoulders to the hips.

Please note that the front and girth of the jackets increases as the length increases so bear this in mind if your dog is on the slim side. Very slim breeds like greyhounds and whippets may need to go down a size.

Excellent service . Does just the job . My husband and I can now enjoy a peaceful drink in the pub with nobody reaching down to touch our sleeping dog . !

Perfect item
Tuesday, 4 September 2018  |  Jane

Absolutely pleased with all items purchased but thought they were a little on the expensive side considering they are not printed (we had specialist printing to be done) but they are hand made so appreciate the work involved. Unfortunately we will not be able to give you any more business as you are no longer selling them without printing so it no longer meets our needs.

Perfect solution!
Tuesday, 3 July 2018  |  Naomi

Walks with my two dogs had become a nightmare. My girl has always been fearful of other dogs and usually barks at any other dogs while we're out. This has made our walks quite stressful. I was always worried about people letting their dogs get too close to her (she's always on a lead, but this doesn't seem to compute with many other owners that there's a potential problem). The warning she is now wearing on her coat (and harness/lead - also purchased) has brought her problem to their attention, thus making our walks much less stressful for both me, her and her brother.
I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs to highlight certain traits to fellow walkers.
It was a bonus that the coat was supplied quickly and the size for Lulu's breed was spot on.
Many Thanks!

Excellent product, well made and it fits our dog perfectly. Very impressed with the service too - the coat was custom-made but still came very quickly.

warning dog coat order
Wednesday, 7 March 2018  |  Johanna

I have ordered from dfordog twice now and have no hesitation in using the site again. My orders were delivered quickly and were exactly as requested.
The Warning coat was ordered for my young dog who is deaf and is wary of being approached by people he doesn't know. The quality is of good long lasting material and the wording stands out well against the hi-vis yellow.

Ultimate Warning Coat
Tuesday, 27 February 2018  |  Tanya

So very happy with the product and service! Exactly what we asked for and a perfect fit! Walking our beautiful rescue shepherd feels a lot better and he actually likes it as it takes seconds to put on and it does't effect his natural movement! Thank you from both of us!
