Overview 

Ruffwear is a popular outdoor dog gear brand that has been around since 1994. The company dedicates itself to creating quality outdoor gear for dog athletes and their human companions. Ruffwear says, “We believe that our products should perform, and that performance should be measured by the ability to enhance our outdoor adventures with our dogs.” Whatever your pup’s personality, physical abilities, and favorite activities, Ruffwear has something to improve your experience. 

The Ruffwear Sun Shower Dog Raincoat is built for doggy adventures, no matter the weather. “The fold-up storm collar and TailGate™ patterning offer extended coverage over the neck, rump, and thighs to keep dogs dry in wet conditions.” This jacket is waterproof and lightweight, and because it’s not insulated, your dog can wear it on warm, rainy days, too.

“Nice and lightweight, and I love the hind leg straps to keep it secure”

“Nelson loves it and I love it. He stays dry and he’s super comfortable in it. The best part? It doubled as a warming coat on a recent camping trip. He’s a Rhodesian Ridgeback living in Alaska. I have other Ruffwear coats for winter, but this was perfect for a chilly fall night in the tent.”
