Wherever your adventures take you in the great outdoors this Winter, Hurtta's Expedition Dog Parka is our favorite choice when it comes to protecting your best friend from the elements.
Especially perfect for dogs with short hair and those with no undercoat, the parka is suitable for all dog breeds, as it protects the chest and major muscle groups, keeping those frigid Winter temperatures at bay. It is a particularly good option for use after agility sessions, for senior dogs, or for dogs with health issues.
Made from a breathable, durable, water-resistant material, the parka has been designed to make putting it on and taking it off super easy, and it will stand up to all kinds of adventures. So often dog coats "restrain' your dog, not allowing a full range of movement, but the Expedition, with its soft elastic sections on the front, move with your dog, allowing him to run and play without restriction.
Other features include 3M reflectors for greater visibility and an opening for a harness on the back of the larger sizes. Small sizes feature an integrated harness.
Easy to achieve a perfect fit, the back length of the coat, neckline and collar circumference are all fully adjustable. Please refer to the Sizing Chart to find the best size for your dog. In addition to basic sizes, Hurtta has added sizes 16XS and 18XS, especially designed for Dachshunds and sizes 12XL and 14XL are perfect for small bulldog breeds.
To easily achieve a perfect fit, Hurtta suggests the following with regard to measuring your dog:
The Back Length:
Measure your dog from his withers (not his collar) to the base of his tail, while he is standing in normal position. The withers is the ridge between your dog's shoulder blades, i.e., the tallest point of his body.
The Neckline Measurement:
Measure from the base of your dog's neck, i.e., the widest point of his neck. Please note that the neckline of an overall can be larger than the circumference of his neck, as it can be adjusted to fit a smaller neck.
The Chest Measurement:
The chest measurement should be taken at the widest point of your dog's chest, from behind his front legs. To allow for freedom of movement, the chest of an overall must be wider than the dog's chest.
