This is designed for Pugs and French Bull Dogs. All coats have the lycra inset, for movement from the shoulder. The coats stay in place with the rolling movement of these breeds. They are raincoats, cooling coats in the summer and warming coats in the winter. This product line was started because the owners English Bulldog overheated. It was the inspiration for the company.Any coat that is colder than 60 F closes down the capilliaries on the skin surface. Zentek products KEEP the dog from overheating.. keep the blood at the surface of the skin.The others push the heat back to the body core. You should use an ear thermometer to check this for yourself. These are amazing cooling coats. Used for 6 years by the top show dogs, and agility dogs in the country.
All Zentek products are washable.
F1 coats fit Pugs.
F2 coats fit French Bull Dogs - 24-28 pounds.
For lighter weight Pugs and French Bull Dogs, we recommend the S4 under the Straight Back Coats.

Hannah ran agility class for the second time today in her zentek coat. Temp outside was 29C (just over 84F), humid and sunny. Our main agility coordinator attended the class as one of the students. She has seen the heat related issues I have had with Hannah - running to the shade instead of doing her course, refusing jumps, running very slow, etc. She is familiar with the zentek crate pads but had not seen the jackets. Hannah ran 3 short courses, 2 medium length ones, and one full course over the length of an hour. The difference in her response today versus her non-zentek coat days was noted by the agility coordinator. No running to the shade and quitting. She was even pretty quick on her last run which was the full length course. The coordinator commented that Hannah ran much better and when she stuck her hand under the jacket was surprised to note the dog was not hot underneath the coat. She also commented on the front shoulder material and the way the jacket is designed to allow the dog to move freely. Now she too is intrigued by this jacket. Sorry I can't speak to Hannah's actual temperature - she is not a fan of having her temp taken and though I have checked in home practices (and found the jacket to work) I have not been checking when on a full agility course so as to keep her experience and attitude towards competition positive! Have to admit I was skeptical at first but seeing this jacket in action I am getting more and more convinced that it works!
