Springtime is the right time to add a light, waterproof layer for your dog. Choosing the right jacket can be a challenge with all the options - during heavy rains 100% waterproof, breathable fabrics work better than water repellant treatments that do not last with wear and washing. Also, fabrics like PVC do not breathe, have a negative impact on the environment, and actually trap moisture between the jacket and your dog's fur. Durable fabrics with a waterproof shell and poly/cotton combine to maintain your dog's natural temperature while protecting the dog and your home / car from dirt and water. Reflective piping and tape also raise the visibility of your dog during all evening and night time walks. If environmental and human impact are important to you, choose products that are manufactured in North America to ensure social responsibility is in practice.
