We offer a choice of luxury padded coats; this range excludes an under-body panel.

The outer material is manufactured from 100% ‘breathe-time’ nylon.

The padded coats are manufactured using a 100% polyester filament, whilst the soft inner lining of all the coats is 100% cotton/polyester.

Animate coats, which are available in a wide range of colours, can be wipe-cleaned using a damp cloth and are all fully machine washable.

‘Breathe-time’ fabric

The ‘Breathe-time’ fabric used in Animate coats is produced using hi-tech processes to achieve water and wind resistance (to keep adverse weather out) together with high moisture permeability (to let the dog’s natural vapour out) whilst maintaining a cosy, soft-touch feeling, ensuring the jacket is not only extremely purposeful but also very comfortable to wear. ‘Breathe-time’ also maintains the animal’s natural body temperature whilst performing outdoor activities; with exterior temperatures ranging anywhere between the extremes of -20 degrees to +45 degrees the ‘Breathe-time’ fabric will maintain a pleasing temperature for your dog.

Animate coats are available in a range of 14 sizes, from 8″ (20cms) to 34″ (85cms), in 2″ (5cms) increments. The huge amount of adjustment available means that problems associated with fitting around the girth are very rarely encountered.

The tiny 8″ (20cms) coat enables the very smallest of dogs to be protected from the weather, whilst at the other end of the range the enormous 34″ (85cms) coat is big enough to fit a small horse. The evidence is in the montage alongside!

Fitting and sizing

Fitting an Animate Jet dog coat on your dog is simplicity itself. Firstly place the coat loosely along the dog’s back. Hook one of the elasticated loops around each rear leg. Overlap the coat’s front panels as necessary to suit the dog’s chest size (it can be further adjusted later, if necessary), then fasten the velcro-covered strap to the velcro panel.

Now pass the under-body straps (one strap on the smaller size coats, two straps on the larger size coats) under your dog and attach them to the velcro panels on the coat – that’s it, done! When you’ve done it once or twice it will take you less than 10 seconds!

There is a generous amount of adjustment available on the both the velcro-covered straps and the velcro’ed area on the coat – irrespective of the chest size of your dog, if you’ve determined the correct length of coat it is almost certain to fit your dog.

Animate Jet dog coats are available in 14 sizes at 2″ (5cms) increments from 8″ (20cms) to 34″ (85cms).

To identify the correct size coat for your dog measure from the base of the neck (where you’d normally fit a collar) to the start of the tail; the correct size coat will generally be the first coat size which is as long as, or failing that longer than, the dog’s back.

As the size of the dog increases, so the size of the jacket becomes less critical.

For example, if the dog’s back measures 9″ (23cms) the size of coat usually offering the best fit will be the 10″ (25cms) size.

However, if the dog’s back measures 21″ (53cms) although the optimum size coat will be the 22″ (55cms) size, both the 20″ (50cms) and 24″ (60cms) size coats will usually offer a perfectly acceptable fit.

If you buy the wrong size we’ll be happy to exchange it.
