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 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!

Jacket
Friday, 23 February 2018  |  Amanda

I'm pleased with it, as it let's people know I'm training my dog, to help me.It does what I wanted it for, as people kept coming up and trying to stroke him with out asking. So now they know when he's wearing it he's working. The only thing I would say is I had to get the large size, for the length, but then had to adjust it around the neck. But is easy to keep clean and drys quickly.

Disappointment
Monday, 27 November 2017  |  Natasha

I was disappointed with the customer care of dfordog. My coat was far too big, and I wanted a smaller one made, they were not happy to refund any of my first order and so I have had to look else where for another coat that will fit. I did measure my dog, but he was too big for the small, and clearly too small for the medium. I do not think I will order from dfordog as I believe they should be more accomodating and keep a good rapport with their customers. They have lost a business opportunity with me as I would have been tempted to purchase other dog products in the future. But not now.

Hi Natasha, I am sorry to hear you feel that way. You asked for a customised jacket and I am sorry but they cannot be returned when they have been personalised. We did everything we could to accommodate you and even though it was also personalised, we still offered you a refund on the lead bunting as a gesture of good will.

Effective, clear message
Wednesday, 1 November 2017  |  Michelle

My dog has become very anxious and aggressive towards strange dogs who approach her since being attacked for the third time. This jacket has proved very effective at encouraging other dog owners to keep their dogs away (much more effective than verbal warnings), and has made me more relaxed when walking her too.

Wording large enough to see
Tuesday, 22 August 2017  |  Gwendoline

Arrived promptly and the wording was easy to read, unfortunately not all dog owners pay attention when they let their dogs of the lead. Along with a nervous lead walkers gave a wide berth. Fit was good for the measurement.

Super Jacket
Monday, 26 June 2017  |  Mary-Rose

The jacket has helped others know that my fur baby is rather nervous, and stops owners let their dogs wonder over and sniff around her (which she hates!).
Living in a very hot country, the thickness of the material is perfect, it's also so easy to put on.
The size guide is spot on too!
Many thanks.
Mary-rose from Spain.
