7 Best Dog Coats For Large Dogs

Finding the right gear for your large dog can be a challenge. It is especially difficult to find a dog coat for your large dog.

When researching dog jackets, the sizes are meant for extra small to medium sized dogs. This leaves larger dogs with limited options when choosing the best gear for your pup.

We have a wide variety of jackets for dogs and we chose the best ones that are available for large dogs. From winter dog coats, raincoats, and even the cheap ones read more to figure out which on is for you.

Before we show you our large dog collection, there are a few things to think about purchasing a large dog jacket.

 

Does My Dog Need A Jacket?

While jackets are cute and fashionable the most important question to ask is if your dog needs a jacket in the first place.

While there are plenty of dog breeds that can benefit from using a dog coat, we are going to list a few that don’t particularly need one.  

The Alaskan Malamute, Keeshond, Newfoundland, Norwegian Elkhound, Tibetan Mastiff, Siberian Husky, and the Saint Bernard all have thick coats that are meant to withstand the cold weather.

 

According to Randa Kriss’s article on 7 breeds that love the cold weather that you should note that “These dogs were bred to withstand the cold temperatures but that doesn’t mean that it is safe to leave the outdoors on cold days.”

Taking extra precautions to ensure your pets safety should always be done. Here is a general guide for cold weather pet safety tips for your dog.

When it comes to raincoats for dogs most if not all dogs can use one regardless if they need one. Keeping your dog dry on a rainy day saves you the effort of mopping floors and worrying about your furniture.

 

Now that you figured out if you need a dog coat its time for the next step taking their measurements.

 

How To Measure Your Dog For A Jacket?

When shopping online there are variations in sizes from one store to the next. A large for example can be a medium at another shop and vice versa. Measuring your dog will get you the most accurate size jacket for your dog.

Skip the hassle of shipping back a product because it is too big or small. While we offer free returns, measuring your pup saves everyone time and you’ll be happier getting it right the first time.

To guarantee the best fit for your dog we use all three common measurements for dogs. Length from base of neck to the base of the tail, chest size, and neck size. We call the length of the base of the neck to the tail the “back” and it will be referenced as that throughout the rest of the article. 

 

To measure the neck of your dog, find the largest area at the base of their shoulder blades and wrap your measuring tape in front of their front legs.

To measure the chest of your dog, find the largest area of their chest and wrap your measuring tape behind their front legs.

If you are still unsure how to measure your dog here is a quick video showing how to take measurements.

 

 

Your dog’s weight may fluctuate in the summer and winter months. If you are buying a jacket during the summer, make sure add an extra half an inch for the neck and chest measurements for the best fit.

 

Now its time for the fun part which is choosing the right style!

 

What Style Dog Jackets Are Out There?

There are plenty of style choices to choose from posh to plush, weatherproof and lightweight. We have 25 different dog coats for large dogs in different styles so the choice is yours.

We also offer full body dog jackets for large dogs. These are for the adventurous dog who goes on hikes and loves the snow. They also can be used for older dogs if they can’t withstand the cold temperatures.

While we offer many styles, we are showcasing the best of them for each individual category, but we are missing one more factor to consider when purchasing a dog coat. The price.

 

What is your budget?

Budget is important when choosing a dog jacket, the range starts from $25 on the low end to $70 for our best weatherproof jacket.

The difference in costs depends on the materials and uses of each jacket. Our top of the line jacket while having protection from all types of weather might not suit everyone’s needs.

Whereas our cheap dog coats are perfect for someone living the city life. While they might not offer as much protection from torrential downpours they are suited for everyday normal use.
