The Over Coat Fuse is a lightweight, water-resistant dog jacket from the famous outdoorsy brand Ruffwear and is a must for any doggy summer wardrobe. The coat also features a handy clip to attach the lead to, so it doubles up as a harness too. There are two zippered pockets on each side of the coat for useful storage of poo bags etc, perfect for when you have no pockets yourself. Plus, the bright colour will help brighten up any soggy summer evening walkies. 


Rukka Sky Dog Raincoat

The Rukka Sky Raincoat for dogs is a firm favourite of ours here at Not In The Dog House. The waterproof dog coat was designed specifically for spring and summer as the mesh lining is really breathable meaning your dog won't overheat in the weather is muggy but wet. This raincoat is also perfect for harness wearers as there's a zippered attachment opening. The waist belt is adjustable and there are also straps for the back legs ensuring the perfect fit for any sized pooch.

We know the Danish Design 2-in-1 Dog Coat is known for being a winter dog jacket, but hear us out! Did you know the polar fleece lining is removable? Simply whip the cosy warm lining out and your dog has the perfect summer raincoat. It's lightweight, fully waterproof, super breathable, machine washable and even has a version with a harness hole. Plus, you don't need to buy another for the winter, you guessed it, just re-attach the fleece lining - winner!

This water-resistant dog coat range from Joules is the most stylish way to keep your pooch dry this summer. As well as keeping them dry, the coat features adjustable touch-fastening to enable you to effortlessly put this on your dog. The coats come with the usual Joules details such as Joules branding, striped lining and leather toggles.

Hunter Uppsala All-Rounder Dog Coat


Another 2-in 1 coat, the Hunter Uppsala All Rounder is water-repellent, windproof and lightweight, making it the ideal companion for summer and winter! Thanks to the detachable fleece lining, you can adjust the coat according to the time of year. The closed belly side and the elastic fixing bands for the hind legs (variable in position and length) ensure a perfect fit. The collar of the dog coat is adjustable in width by means of an elastic band, and in addition to an opening for the D-ring of a collar, the coat is also ideal for harness wearers thanks to its waterproof and individually adjustable two-way zipper - it's a beauty!
