Ruff-ing it Out

Your dog is a true pioneer. Whether it's rain, wind, or snow -- for years, your faithful companion has braved the elements to do such simple tasks as going to the bathroom. Reward your pooch for its hours of cold-weathered squatting with a brand new parka and a set of shoes. Sweet, sweet luxury.

I wish they made them true to today's size dog. My little 22# terrier wears a large perfectly and I love how it fits her! I wanted to get our boys coats and snow makes such ice balls in their long goldendoodle coats, but there was nothing offered in XXL, which might (hopefully) fit them at 63 and 73 lbs. Big dogs need coats too!

haha the red and white mesh shoes crack me up. Owner of the dog could buy a matching pair of shoes.

Shucks, looks like the smallest the two Camo options come in is size Small. I'd love to get one of these for our kitten Ghillie (named after Ghillie suits used in the Army, due to his striped patches). His "organic camo" isn't thick enough for him to be outside much over the winter.

1- on items like this, it would be nice to have estimated breed guides alongside the items. My mom lives across the country and has a mini and a toy poodle. In general most products with sizes for dogs list sample breeds the sizes have in mind. would be useful for those of us unable to measure the dogs in questions.

2- As much of an advocate as I am about a pets.woot, I can't say i'm encouraged by the offerings on home- $40 dog bowls, beds just dying to be exploded about the house and ridiculous jackets?? how about some good reflector leashes/harnesses? high quality toys? non-explosive beds? high end treats? good litter boxes? automated laser pointers?

If you had a westpaw deal, i'd be in for 3, hack my husband's account, and be in for 3 more!
just saying....

Thank you for posting this! I have a pit puppy that is 40# and is shivering when I walk her right now...not much of a fur coat! Bummed I can't get one of these! But glad you posted so I didn't waste my time! :o)

It's just as well. Cats not silly muffy dogs. Thought I mention since you have a kitten and perhaps you don't know that yet. It would be humiliating for them to wear those coats and boots. Yes, I know, it seems they would look terribly cute in them. But I wouldn't try it.
If you do not heed my advice, and decide to try to put one of these on a cat anyways. Keep a big box of bandaids on hand.

And make sure you have your video camera out- I wanna see that on the you-tubes!!

Big dogs get cold too! I was disappointed that none of the coats are available in larger sizes. My pitty is 62 pounds and needs at least an XL - and he is generally considered a "medium" sized dog. The coats are cute, get more sizes!

I measured my dogs for coats the last time these were for sale and I thought I got pretty close.

I bought my 7lb chiweenie a medium and my 14lb doxipoo a large. They have bigger chests so usually smaller coats don't close around them.

Both were too big. The medium fits the doxipoo instead and the large fits my 20lb mini schnauzer.

The boots are too funny. The chiweenie kept walking backwards in them. They are very warm and cuddly. They say dry cleaning only though which is a bummer for a pet item.

I ordered a small for the chiweenie because she's a tiny thing and needs a coat more than the other 2 do.

Wish more sizes were offered. The medium would never fit my 18lbs Puggle.

Same here. Nothing will fit my 86 lb catahoula with his 34 inch chest and 2.75 inch wide feet.

Yes I took a ruler to my dog's feet. He would have suffered those blue boots today (it's 0 F right now).

Yes! I second all of the griping for bigger sizes... Big dogs rule!

Then again, my mastiff is small for her breed at 130 pounds with her 3 and a quarter inch feet, so I'm not holding my breath for anything on here that will fit my poor girl.

EDIT: Also, I totes agree with the creation pet.woot. I would have no more paycheck. My landlord would kick me out on the street with my pile of dog/cat items and screaming monkeys.

Oh wow. These are awesome.

Nothing says evil inhumane tortured soul like the movements of a dog trying to remove clothing!

They're a Halloween mask away from killing half an onlooking neighborhood from pure unadulterated terror.

Are these diameters or circumferences listed on the size chart?
