Big Dog Coat is based on the standard horse blanket design but improved. Our coat has a detachable chest piece that covers the chest and belly and between the front legs.The coat is 35″ long and adjusts for length and width. For 100- to 150 lb dogs. Can be adjusted down to 80 lb dog. A larger chest piece available for 200 + dogs. Uses low profile and stronger hook and loop closures, that does not collect hair.
The coat is 35" long and will adjust shorter to 25" The girth will fit a 42" chest and adjust down to 23". The neck will fit a 27" neck and adjust down to 20" It has 2 pieces. The top is shaped like the basic horse blanket. The chest piece. is rectangular, with a 14" side extension to cover the chest between the front legs. An effective cooling coat must cover the chest and under belly as much as possible.The outer material is ripstop. The the Comfortemp and the eyelet mesh lining. For larger dogs contact me with the dogs measurements and I will send you a larger chest piece. The coat adjusts with 4 strips of velcro on the side. This allows you to shorten the coat length and adjust for the chest depth. We have used a lower profile but stronger velcro, that will not gather fur, and will stand up to the stresses of a larger dog. You can separate the 2 pieces, and use for a mat in the crate or in the car.
This coat has the greatest amount of phase change material, as we are cooling a larger body mass. The best cooling dog coat for large dogs. Use the Zentek coat consistently and your dog will not overheat. Always carry a ear thermometer, if you have a dog that is heat sensitive.These are the coats used by the AKC show dogs.
Remember, as with all Zentek products, air flow recharges the cooling effect of the coat.
Available in royal blue with black lining.
* Please refrain from dry-cleaning this item

I have been looking for a dog coat for my Bernese that has lost use of it hind legs. It has to be easy to put on and off when I take him out for potty. This coat works around the cart. Zentek worked from measurements and made a little extra room in the bottom piece for the side arms of the cart. What is nice is that the top and bottom piece totally separate, so I can use just the top if I'm in a hurry
