9 Best Raincoats for Dogs in India (2022)

Dogs, just like humans are not a lot enthused about walking in rain. There are many dogs who despise rain. Also, damp fur is the perfect condition for fungal and skin infections to develop.

So, a raincoat is a must-have for your dog to protect them from rainy-day worries and is a good way to prevent your pooch from having any temperature issues.

What factors should you consider before choosing the right raincoat?

  • Aside from an obvious requirement that a raincoat should be made of any water-repelling material, pet parents must ensure that the raincoat is of proper size. Not too tight to restrict the movement but not too loose to get caught in the legs. It should also not hinder the dog’s ability to do his/her business on walks.
  • As all the pet parents are aware, water and the dog’s ears are a complete no-no. So it is recommended to consider a raincoat that has a hood. 
  • Allow your dog to get aquatinted to the rainwear. We suggest starting to train your dog for the same with help of treats.

How to fit your dog for rainwear

There is so universal sizing in dog clothing wears. The best way to get the right fit for your dog is to grab a measuring tape. Measure up the length of the dog’s back from tail to shoulder when your dog is standing in a relaxed position.

Some brands may also require chest girth measurement. You can measure the chest on the widest point of the chest when your dog is in a calm stance. You can maintain it 1 inch wider than its real measurement if your dog is very active.

Getting a raincoat is just a part of making the rainy walk bearable for your dog. If your dog has sensitive paws, you should definitely consider getting a set of boots or waterproof socks.

If your dog is afraid of loud noises, it is always best to plan your walk when the rain is light and the streets are quiet. Remember that your dog may still avoid the rain even though you have provided him with appropriate rainwear. They may go for a potty break and then refuse to continue.

For exercise, it is better to have backup plans such as a stair walk, hide and seek at home, and mental stimulation games.

For smaller breeds, you can even try indoor potty locations like fresh grass or toilet train your dog. Make sure to properly dry off your pet, especially in the paws and head. After the drying up, enjoy your pet’s zoomies session.
