Great White North Winter Coat
Chilly Dogs® has improved the design and fit of our flagship GWN coats. Velcro™ has been added to the body and belly panel on all the L&L coats and the All Breed M-22" to XL-38" coats. With the addition of the Velcro™, we have created a more form fitting coat that offers a better fit for active dogs. The buckle system still remains on all the GWN coats.
The Great White North™ Winter Coat is designed for maximum warmth, durability and safety in mind. All our coats feature an "Easy On, Easy Off" design. The coat is simply slipped over the dog's head then the "Y" shaped belly panel is pulled down and back between the front legs, then pulled up over the dog's back where the buckles are fastened and the webbing is adjusted.
Temperature Guide: -10C to -30C / 14F to -22F
Harnesses: The GWN coats do not have a hole in the coat for a D-ring connection to the leash due to the varieties and styles of harnesses on the market. Each one having a different location of the D-ring. We suggest that you adjust your favourite Harness to be worn over the coat.
Our coats are not custom made to each dogs specifications. We have many in-stock sizes that have been created from over 10 years of measuring dogs and perfecting our patterns. The measurements you include in your order are requested so we can double check that you have ordered the best size of coat for your dog. Please measure carefully.
The coats are beyond fabulous, soft and luxurious, look amazing, fit perfectly and kept the dogs (whippets) warm. They ran and played and those skinny legs, for the first time while wearing a coat were allowed to stretch to their fullest. Beautiful. Thank you for making just the perfect shaped coat for funny shaped dogs.”
