He can't walk in it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The jacket LOOKS great on my 110# black lab. I got the same size XL in this jacket as I got in the Ruffwear float coat. The float coat is PERFECT, but my poor dog cannot WALK in this jacket. His front legs at the shoulders are impinged. The poor dog stands there and looks at me helplessly. Trying to decide whether to cut the legs open and risk ruining it, or returning it. Very disappointed, because otherwise it fits him perfectly and it's just what I would've wanted.

you could cut the arms up so wider or cut off at chest. BUT odds are your lab does not need this coat at all. My labs are out swimming in single digit weather...what they are bred to do!!
They have oil in their coat like ducks so water rolls off.
As to joints, i have RA and icy water numbs the pain...i noticed my dogs do same thing...mastiff with wrecked joints stands in winter lake up to joint area.
You might have the dog lose some weight. Average lab should weigh from female ( 55-70) males(65-80). my lab likes emu oil on his hurt leg...i use it too! At least will not make them sicker like many pills. Our mastiff is at 160lbs and he stands much higher than my lab. He should be at 150 too..working on getting his weight down now.
But try cutting the arms either all way off or shorten them..just do not cut past stitching for the arms...

Great quality, sizing prob, bad color

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The quality of this jacket is outstanding. The fleece is super soft and thick without being bulky. Obviously well made too. Based on the size chart, I initially bought the small for my small but muscular pitbull. It was way too tight around her neck, so I returned it for a medium, which is a little long, but I am going to hem it to it ends at the base of her tail. The only complaint I have is the color of the jacket. The black one is very sharp looking, but the purple dusk is more of a dusty rose or raspberry- not purple AT ALL. Doesn't look great on her but since all the other mediums are gone I will have to stick with it.

Just wondering what size my dog would fit...

Just wondering what size my dog would fit best in. On the Ruffwear website, he fits a medium for the "Climate Changer", but on your website he fits a small.
His measurements are... neck 18.5, back length 24, chest 28.
Please let me know what you suggest.

Red,

Based on the measurements you've provided, if I were getting the Climate Changer for your dog I'd get the medium.

The small will be too short but will fit the neck perfectly. Where as the medium will be long enough but the neck will have a skosh of extra room. But that is generally okay due to room for the collar.

Would it be possible to get a replacement...

Would it be possible to get a replacement zipper? We love the fleece, but our boxer/pit thought it was time to take it off and wrecked the zipper. Thanks!

Jeri,

For warranty and replacements, give the customer service department a call at 800.409.4502 and we can see what your options may be.

warm puppy

I have a 25lb Boykin Spaniel. This little jacket was fantastic in the Tahoe snow. She played and was warm and dry (well, dry where the jacket was) Boykin's are longer dogs but, even so, the jacket fit pretty well down her back - could have been a little longer but was adequate. I would recommend and buy again. My other dog has an Orvis pullover sweatshirt which I also love -- would probably get the Ruffwear if had to choose.

Warm doggie!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have a 45 pound boxer and the size SM fits her perfect! It's very easy to slip on, the zipper is very durable. Ideal for cold weather, it's very thick and will keep your doggie very warm. Perfect for camping! I love the orange color, it's bright so other campers will easily spot your dog. It has reflective material along the seams, bonus! Great purchase!

Warm Old Dog

Saved my dogs life... My 10 year old dog became ill and the meds caused him to loose some fur. He also has some arthritis in the shoulders and the jacket keeps the shoulders warm and allowed him to romp and roll in the snow with his buddies. Jacket is extremely well made, easy to get on, no jam zippers and drove the ladies crazy!

Pay attention to the sizing chart

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This really is a great jacket. I should have payed a bit more attention to the sizing chart when I ordered though. These jackets are REALLY long, which is nice when you order the right size :) I'll be getting the right size shortly! They are super warm and make you feel a lot better about being out in the cold!
