Thread: URGENT - DOG COATS NEEDED!

  1. #1

    URGENT - DOG COATS NEEDED!

    Hi Everyone

    Brrrrghhhhh ... with the winter setting in and temperatures dropping we find that we are in desperate need of coats for our rescue kennel dogs - they really will need the extra insulation! We have some, but not all are quite right in size and not enough to go round:











    Poor Dylan has no coat tonight:



    Does anyone have any unwanted dog coats or coat fleeces, ranging in size from medium to large particularly with long fastenings. A lot of our Staffies are quite big around the chest/waist by stature and lots of coats just won't do up even though they look the right size. Ideally good quality fastenings, strong Velcro or easy to use buttons so it isn't too hard to get them on an overexcited dog. We also need a few Rottie size coats too for our bigger dogs.

    If you can help please e-mail me at [email protected] for an address to post to.

    Appreciate anything you can do.

    Thank you

    PS Sadly knitted/woollen dog coats do not stand the test of time (regular washing and chewing – our dogs have the time to quickly unpick woollies!) so are not suitable.

    No I don't, but this was posted on our forum by one of our kindly members:

    "I based a coat off this pattern which you could make to have straps as long as necessary. I made mine with just the one strap across the chest and one under the belly, both going all the way across to the other side rather than meeting in the middle - with a long strip of velcro on both the strap and the side of the coat, it could be fairly adjustable in terms of fitting most chest/belly sizes.

    Edit: something like this


    The straps were made with cotton fabric, folded over on itself and sewn down the seam for thickness. The "body" part was made by sewing a fleecey fabric to a cotton fabric - inside out then reversing - remembering to sew the straps in place".

    All the dogs that will wear a coat now have one, but with over 40 dogs in kennels we are still in need - we really could do with some more - especially as the cold weather is back! That way we can also double layer to keep them really snug.

    Also our volunteers are making repairs regularly to some to keep them holding together as long as possible! Well the kennel dogs have time on their paws to do a little stitch unpicking! :
