** The S7 coat size is a larger coat, but made with the smaller 'V' inset at the front shoulders, unlike the S8 to S10. It is the in- between fitting, for dogs that are longer , but do not have the bulky muscles .This coat has the buckle closure.
We designed a special Patented pattern for the larger dogs, S8, S9 & S10. Instead of just an inset-- these have a fuller 'sleeve' area and a larger curved lycra inset. The 'sleeve' is designed, so the dogs have movement room from their shoulders. The chest piece wraps through the dogs' front legs, and up around the dogs rib cage. The larger dogs have a wider chest strap that closes with velcro. The coat is stabilized with two side velcro pieces on the straps. These are all reasons, we patented the coat. Coats are water resistant, both cooling in the summer and warming in the winter. These are very special coats.
There are few large dog coats, and no others that will keep your dog comfortable in the summer or winter. These coats do not slide from side to side. These coats will last 10 years.Wash cool with detgerent, and no fabric softeners. hang to dry. Enjoy the peace of mind that Zentek provides.

I wanted to tell you about yesterday.
Rain was dressed in her beautiful ZenTek coat as we headed off on errands. It was +15 degrees out and a few days past a big snow fall when I got a flat tire...bead broke and tire was nearly off the rim. I managed to get my minivan into a parking lot and called my road side assistance that specializes in road service for folks using wheelchairs and who have Service Dogs.
I kept the van turned off so as not to use up all my gasoline as I didn't know how long I was going to be "broken down". The building, in whose lot I had parked, was locked and no one around. With all the snow and me using an electric wheelchair, I had no place to go to get us into a warm building while we waited for help to arrive. I covered myself with a warm blanket and Rain curled up on her seat, front passenger seat, though I did unhook her seat belt to give her total freedom to get comfortable. I have a blanket for Rain but she didn't need it at all. Rain stayed toasty warm as we waited. It took a little over an hour for road service to arrive to change the flat tire.
Thank you so much for Rainy's coat! It served her well :D
