Spaniel Proof... sort of...
My working cocker spaniel rips, tears or looses ALL her coats. So far this coat has stood up to her antics and size 45 fits her perfectly.
The outer material is very thick and strong. The coat is very warm and WATERPROOF.
The dirt brown colour is fab as you can't see the mud all over it after a game of barrel rolls so she always looks clean and smart.
The only downfall is the back leg straps are a bit thin on the elastic so she has ripped one off but it was easily sewed back together.
Staffordshire bull terrier - fits very well
This coat fits my staffie very well. The fastening is perfect, we previously had a coat with a Velcro fastener which soon lost it's grip, so this will hopefully last a lot longer. The only downside is that my staffie has very little fur, and under his front legs are bare, on a 2 hour, wet and cold walk this coat rubbed him under his front legs. His arm pits were very very sore and they took a long time to heal. I'm not sure whether it is just the coat that is not suited to my dog or whether the coat needs to be worn a few times on shorter walks to soften the material, but we now are cautious when putting it on him and try to have it very loose so it does not irritate his bald patches.
All in all this coat is a good fit for our stocky, leggy staffie. It is not tight on his chest and fits all the way down his back, and he seems to be warm in it too. I would recommend it to others.
