Extra Large Dog Coats
From comfy, cozy to high performance, here are a few of our favorite dog coats that will fit even the largest furbaby
You may wonder, ‘why would my dog need a coat if he’s already got one built in?’ Or perhaps the thought has never crossed your mind. Well, my friends, winter is upon us. And the fact is that many of our doggos are just not equipped to deal with the cold weather. The other fact is that even the dogs who are equipped can suffer when temperatures fall below freezing.
Larger, beefier dogs generally fare much better in the cold than smaller, skinny dogs. However, even large breeds won’t enjoy it when the mercury sinks! Here at Runway Rover headquarters, we deal with cold temperatures every day! And we know that it can sometimes be difficult to find those extra large dog coats you need to keep your big breeds comfortable.
So, for anyone in our neck of the woods, or any other similarly frigid climate, we’ve assembled this list of our favorite big coats for big dogs. Enjoy!
This coat is modeled after the Derby Originals winter blanket for horses. It is high quality and very durable. If you want your dog to stay dry in the rain, this is the coat for you. The 600 denier outer fabric is made from close-knit nylon that makes this coat totally waterproof! And the soft polyester insulation between the shell and the breathable nylon lining will keep your dog as warm as you are on your long winter walks.
This coat is available for all sizes of dogs even up to a 28.5 in back length! We also love the fact that the coat is adjustable. It features both a neck strap and a comfortable fuzzy belly band to secure around your dogs’ midsection. Flexible shoulder gussets allow your dog to walk and run unrestricted! We know that’s extremely important to him.
The Derby Originals Dog Blanket Coat checks all the boxes for us. We love the price, and we love the variety of fun color options!
This hoodie is absolutely adorable. It looks very similar to any hoodie a human would wear and yet it’s designed specifically for dogs. It comes in three beautiful colors (we personally are partial to the red.)
Made of premium flannel the hoodie is not waterproof but it will give your pet that bit of extra warmth he needs and keep him looking his best at the same time. Buttons make it easy to put this coat on your dog and the hood is detachable! We also love the small Velcro pocket. Use it to bring your dogs’ favorite toy or treat on the road with you!
The Pawz Road Plaid Hoodie has sizes up to 3XL which caters to dogs with a 25.6 inch back length. However, this hoodie does run a little large so keep that in mind when ordering.
Ruffwear is the top dog (pun intended) when it comes to canine climate protection. Any Ruffwear dog coat will generally be more expensive than many others but it’s a brand you can trust.
We love the Climate Changer Jacket made of recycled, (save the planet while you’re at it why don’t you) breathable fleece. Fleece is quick-drying and will help keep your pup dry if there’s a bit of moisture in the air. This is a jacket that your pup can use from fall to spring. The design features short sleeves for added warmth and protects the chest, back and belly while leaving leg movement unrestricted. Perfect for a crisp morning run.
The Climate Changer comes in 3 trendy colors Twilight Gray, Baha Blue, and Alpenglow Pink. All three feature reflective trim to help you, or drivers on the road, spot your doggo and avoid any tragic accidents. The extra large size is good for dogs with up to a 42 inch (107 cm) chest circumference.
And as an added bonus, it’s machine washable! What’s not to love?
We had to add another Ruffwear pick because with all the variety they’ve got going on over there, we couldn’t limit ourselves to just one.
If your dog is squirmy, broad-chested or just can’t tolerate a zippered jacket with sleeves like the Climate Changer, consider the Vert Jacket. It is easy to put on and secured with side-release buckles and optional leg loops for windy days. Constructed with mountain dogs in mind, the Vert is waterproof, windproof and has a fleece lining to provide some cozy insulation.
Does your dog like to wear a harness? Never fear, the leash portal on the Vert allows your dog to wear it over most harnesses and still take you for leash-secured walks. It also features a fold-up oversize storm collar for extra protection from the elements
Just like the Climate Changer, the Vert has reflective trim and is machine washable. All R
Does your pooch hate bulky jackets? Do you just need a bit of extra insulation for chilly days or cool indoor areas? Do you want something that can help soothe your dog’s anxiety? If you answered yes to any of these questions than the Stretch Thermal Snugwear could be a perfect fit.
The Thermal Snugwear is stretchable in all directions to fit snugly (as the name implies) on your dog. Your dog can wear the snugwear like a second skin and it will provide the extra warmth and comfort she needs to feel great both indoors and out. This jacket is also perfect for layering underneath a waterproof or windproof shell.
This item slips right on over your dogs head with no need to bother with zippers, buckles or any closure, and conforms right to the perfect shape. The Snugwear can accommodate dogs with a back length of up to 24 inches, but since it is so stretchy, make sure not to buy a size too big. It also comes in four attractive colors and is machine washable!
