Best sweater ever

Both my dog and I love this sweater - this is his second one. Currently we are using it for snow play either by itself or layered u see a jacket. During camping season he loves to sleep in it on cold nights.

The fit is a little too small for our broad chested Rhodesian Ridgeback. I will need to exchange it for the larger size.

Security blanket for my rescue dog!

Love how easy it goes on! I bought this for my rescue pup who was on death row and clearly came from a bad place. She was severely malnourished and would get cold very easily. I bought her this coat and as of now, she lives in it. Her fur is starting to grow back but this coat keeps her warm and is comfortable enough for her to wear all day. Not bulky, fits her body perfectly. She really loves it, it’s become her security blanket. I’ve had her a month and a half and she lives in this sweater. It does have a couple holes in it from her playing but it’s to be expected when a pup is in it 24/7 and playing outside. Once her fur grows back in I’ll feel more comfortable taking it off her. When she doesn’t have it on I can tell she is cold. Thank you Ruffwear for making a great coat! This rescue pup loves it!

I love this jacket

It fits my dog really well and keeps her old bones warm. I'm very impressed. I didn't notice any difference between this model and the new one.

A beautiful jacket, just not if your dog goes into the brush

This is a very beautiful jacket and the fit on our dog was perfect. The marketing says that it's great for "everyday adventures from trail to town." Unfortunately, after our dog's first use hiking and running around the woods, she came back with several tears in the fabric. So while it's a beautiful jacket, I'd say it's great for everyday adventures in town or in fields or meadows or beaches or other places where it won't catch on brush and trigs. I think it would be a great service if Ruffwear change the product description to reflect the fact that the fabric in not durable under certain conditions. Customer service did a very lovely job of refunding us, once I called them, after I found their initial offer inadequate. We ended up buying the Overcoat Fuse Harness Jacket, which is much sturdier and has an outer fabric that is quite durable in the brush!
