What size Dryrobe Dog Coat will fit my dog?

What size dryrobe dog coat will fit my dog? is a question we get asked a lot in store, thankfully the design of the Dryrobe Dog Coat means its really versatile to fit most breeds. Generally speaking, you only need to focus on the length of the dog’s body. E.g.: measure from the base of the neck to the start of the tail. Here is a rough idea on some types of breeds of dogs and the size we recommend.

XS – chihuahua, Yorkshire Terrier, Toy Poodle

S – (small Boston Terrier, Miniature Poodle, Mini Dachshunds, Shih Tzu,

M – French Bulldog, Cocker Spaniel, Cockerpoo, Cavipoo, Standard Boston Terrier, Whippet, Border Terrier

L – Collie, Labrador, Springer Spaniel, Greyhound, Standard Dachshund

XL – New Zealand Hunterway, Boxer, Large Labrador, Saluki Hound

XXL – Doberman, Golden Retriever


What if my dog is in between sizes?

This all depends on if you are going to use the elastic strips on the back of the coat that hooks under the back legs. This keeps the coat from moving and flapping up at the back if the wind is blowing. If the length of the coat stops before the base of the tail the leg straps are going to be uncomfortable underneath to wear and restrict your dog’s movement. You will probably also find they are less likely to move when you put the coat on. In this event we would recommend going up a size so it’s not so tight under the back legs. Some of our customers have preferred the overall fit of the smaller size so in this case, they have purchased some additional elastic from a haberdashery, cut the strap on the coat in the middle and then sewed the additional elastic to it.

I have a dog whose long slender body but deep chest never seems to fit any coats? Will the Dryrobe Dog Coat fit a Dachshund?

The reason dryrobe Dog is our best-selling coat is that it pretty much fits most breed of dogs! We have fitted a Large on a Labrador but also a slender long Greyhound. This is because the long Velcro strap that fits around the body means you can tighten or loosen it. Just get the length correct. Sadly, the only dog we haven’t managed to get one to fit is an English Bulldog as they need an XL to get over their heads but then it’s too long in the body.

Is the dog dryrobe coat waterproof?

Yes! Dryrobe Dog Coats are made from the same materials of the human version. The outer layer made with 100% recycled nylon and finished with PFC- free BIONIC FINISH ECO Durable Water – Repellent. Waterproof up to 10,000mm

Is it a Coat or a Drying Robe?

It can be both! Our Boston Terrier doesn’t like the cold or rain so we mostly use ours as a waterproof warm coat which will also protect her chest from being covered in mud from her walk but often people use them on their dog after a wet walk to protect their car interior from getting messy and wet but it will also help to dry and keep their dog warm.

Please be aware that using dryrobe dog coat in water may present a serious risk of drowning even for strong doggy swimmers.
