Brave the Storm: Jacob and @CanadaPooch

No dog hates the rain as much as Jacob does. When we lived in LA, rainy season was the worst for him.  I had a dog raincoat from Old Navy that I would put on him. Sometimes when the wind blew, the jacket’s velcro would blow off and the hood was so small that it was really just decorative.   Since then, that little yellow raincoat became too short and too small for Jacob.  Here are some of the problems we had with our old raincoat. (Nov 09)

1. The velcro straps did up around the front of the chest and then under the belly – Sometimes the front one will fly open and the coat will be dangling around his belly.

2. The hood was way too small to be worn

3. The length was too short and sometimes blew up in the wind and flip over

4. The front and underside of Jacob still got wet and muddy


When we came across Canada Pooch – We knew that we had a winner! I first saw Canada Pooch attire on Oscar from I’m Charming You but I had no idea they made big dog clothes.  CanadaPooch prides themselves on “Helping your pooch brave the rugged Canadian climate in style.”  All of those elements are important to me. Especially the STYLE part!  (and function too!)

The Canada Pooch coat has a double velcro closure that goes from the chin to the belly.  At the chin there is an extra snap button to secure it.  The length fits him great (size 24) and the hood is more than generous in covering his head.  It also has 3M reflectors on the edge.

Also it’s blue and black reversible!

Thanks Canada Pooch!  Now we are ready for the rain!
