Who Can Wear This Dog Raincoat?
This dog raincoat is not made with any material that might be harmful to some pet breeds. So, if there is a size for your dog, he can wear it.
Now, the OHF Waterproof Dog Raincoat is available in the following sizes:
- Extra extra-large.
Now, you would need to measure your pooch properly (in centimeters, not inches, please).
Measure the length of his back, the girth of his chest, and lastly, the girth of his neck, and then compare with the measurements offered for each size.
You should find that in the company’s sizing chart, see image below.
If your dog is in between sizes, we advise that you order a size up, this way, the raincoat covers more instead of less.
If you feel like your dog is far from either side, then just skip through to the section of this article that reads “alternative options”.
There you would find other dog raincoats, one of which should have raincoats in your dog’s size.
Features Of The OHF Waterproof Dog Raincoat
This dog raincoat has a double-layered design, i.e., it is made with two materials, one for the outer layer (or shell), and another for the inner-layer.
We will now discuss the two materials individually.
a. Outer-Layer (Shell)
The shell is made with nylon, a very water-resistant material.
Being used as the shell of this dog raincoat, you can rest assured that the OHF Waterproof Dog Raincoat will shield your pup properly from the rain.
Nylon is a lightweight but strong and durable material. It has a silky texture and feel.
Nylon is quite a popular choice for dog raincoats (probably only second to polyester). That is because of how well it shields against the rain.
However, there is a reason why polyester is still the most popular. While nylon is durable, polyester is more durable.
Polyester can withstand more heat than nylon and is harder to rip. With nylon, you would have to be extremely careful with caring for it.
It is advisable that you wash with cold or lukewarm water, never hot water.
Also, you are advised not to spin-dry, only air dry. Do not iron this dog ranincoat.
We’ve already said that nylon doesn’t react well to heat, be guided.
This is something not every dog raincoat has, so, it’s a plus that this dog raincoat comes with it.
The inner-layer of the OHF Waterproof Dog Raincoat is made with anti-static fleece.
The fact that it is anti-static simply means that this material has been treated with anti-static compounds.
Anti-static compounds are treated on areas to eliminate or reduce the build-up of static electricity.
The fleece material here is warm and soft. This makes this dog raincoat warm and cozy for your dog.
If you want something that your dog can wear in winter, spring, and fall, then you need something that is warm enough to protect your dog from the cold. This dog raincoat does that.
This dog raincoat is available in the following colors:
All these colors are good except green, which is a rather dark color, and so is more difficult to see in the dark.
With a dog raincoat, you definitely want something that is easy to see in the dark, to make your dog more visible.
The other colors are brilliant, though. They are very beautiful and equally functional.
To add to the visibility of this dog raincoat, there is a thin reflective stripe that runs vertically, through the back of this dog raincoat.
It glows in the dark, and as such, makes your pooch more visible.
Pros Of The OHF Waterproof Dog Raincoat
Ease of Use
This dog raincoat is pretty easy to use. This means that it’s easy to put on your dog, and to take off of him.
This is pretty important, especially for dogs who do not really like wearing clothes and can get pretty stubborn.
All you have to do is place this on your dog, shut the underbelly Velcro strap and shut the Velcro strap under the neck.
No leg pulling or head pulling needed.
The Velcro Is Too Short
A lot of customers complained that the Velcro straps were too short.
Because they were short, they couldn’t tighten the raincoat on their dog past a certain point.
Most times, the raincoat just hangs over our pup and is not really tight or snug fit.
Also, about the Velcro, some smart dogs found a way to make the raincoat fall apart.
They simply chew on the Velcro on the neck to loosen it and then roll in the mud to get the underbelly Velcro loose.
If you want to buy this dog raincoat, you have to be sure your dog is under supervision while he’s using it, if not, he might simply rip it apart and come to you with that “wet-dog” smell.
Alternative Options To The OHF Waterproof Dog Raincoat
Side Buckle Instead Of Velcro Straps
Ondoing Slicker Dog Raincoat
We’ve seen that the Velcro on the dog raincoat in review is a disaster. So, here’s a dog raincoat that uses buckle instead.
It comes with a water-resistant shell and fleece lining. It also comes with a reflective stripe.
But with this, there is a side buckle which your dog won’t be able to wiggle out of.
Also, this provides your dog with some form of calmness if he has “anxiety issues”.
This is because, this dog raincoat is designed to swaddle your dog, thus, applying light pressure to his pressure points which creates calmness and comfort.
Comes With Hoodie

What Do People Think?
Well, people like the fact that it’s affordable.
Most products that are fleece-lined are quite expensive, so, people are happy to have this one despite its small downsides.
What Do We Think?
Good raincoat. Only that it comes off easily.
If you want something your pup can use to play in his kennel while you’re away, then this is not it.
On the other hand, if you will be supervising your dog while he uses this, this would work just well for you.
