Great coat!

Warm, dry, visible in the dark, with lots of reflective writing. The dogs don't mind wearing them, especially in the not typical Seattle temps in the low 20's!
I have 2 (65 lb.) Vizslas (they are short haired dogs) and the neck is always too large. The size 20 would be too small, and the 22 is big, but they work.

I gave only 4 stars because of the system in the back end. To keep the jacket centered over the back end of the dog there are 2 wimpy pieces of elastic (3/8" wide) to loop around the dogs legs (one came stretched out). My dogs don't like them, would you? I have a couple of jackets with a small loop to go around the tail. They like that even less! I am sure those are fine for dogs with lots of fur, but they aren't the ones that need the coats are they?

I can sew, so I will fix the one elastic strap, and figure out something better. It is because the coats are designed to cover the dog so completely. However a friend of mine has a couple of simple Ruff Wear coats the have a couple of darts on the back end to hold the coat in place. Simple but it works. I was so impressed by the Hurrta company website and products that I expected more of their design.
