Welcome guys! Today, we’ll be talking about the Puppia Dog Raincoat.
Before saying anything about the creation, let’s first talk a little about the creator; Puppia.
So, who is Puppia?
It might interest you to know that the word “Puppia” is a conjoined word (you know, like “chill & relax = chillax”, yeah!)
The two words that make up “Puppia” are “Puppy” & “Utopia”. That should give you a summarized idea of this brand.
Puppia is a global pet fashion design group for dogs, based in South Korea.
Their clothing lines are targeted at making your pup look beautiful, at the same time, keeping him safe and protected.
Who Can Wear The Puppia Dog Raincoat?
The answer to this question lies mainly on one thing- size. So, here are the sizes that this raincoat is available in.
Looking at the range of sizes available, it’s safe to say that this dog raincoat is intended to cater for the larger dogs.
Well, that is not always the case, as this raincoat has been reported to run pretty small.
So, if your pup is in a size in between, or at the very edge of one, we advise that you order a size up.
Features Of The Puppia Dog Raincoat
This dog raincoat is made with water-resistant material. Note, we did not say waterproof.
Confused? Keep calm. We’ll explain.
Well, water-resistant means that the fabric can repel water to a very large extent.
This means that, to a very large extent, water is not able to pass through the material.
On the other hand, waterproof means that the material is impervious to water; water just can’t get inside, no matter what.
To put this into perspective, two bags, one water-resistant, the other waterproof.
If both are placed at the bottom of the Atlantic, after a while, the water-resistant material begins to crack in little spaces, water begins to creep in.
On the other hand, whatever is inside the waterproof bag remains completely dry even if left for a hundred years.
As to how water-resistant this dog raincoat is, it’s pretty good. Not out of this world or anything, just good enough to keep your pup dry after a long walk around the block.
Just do not take your dog swimming with this on expecting him not to get wet.
2. Color And Design
This dog raincoat is available in red, yellow, black, sky blue, pink, brown, and camouflage.
Anyways, if we were to make a choice for you, it would be the red, yellow, blue, or pink; most preferably the yellow.
This is because, these colors are easier to see in the dark.
If you get a camouflage, it becomes even more difficult to pick out your pooch in the dark when it’s raining.
Furthermore, this raincoat comes with a reflective stripe that runs vertically through the back of this raincoat.
However, don’t depend solely on this reflective stripe because there are prints along the stripe which somehow restrict the visibility. Best thing we suggest is a high visibility collar.
Pros Of The Puppia Dog Raincoat
One good thing about this dog raincoat is that it comes with a hoodie that will cover your pups’ head and keep it dry.
This dog raincoat comes with adjustable drawstrings and stoppers on the hood, sleeves, and bottom.
These make it easy to tighten around these areas and so, make the raincoat fit better, overall.
The Sizes Run Pretty Small
Not to be too quick to generalize, but this is typical of Asian products. They usually run very small, and the Puppia Dog Raincoat is not an exception.
We think that this raincoat was designed mainly for small dogs.
To get a size that fits, you’ll probably have to order two or more sizes up.
And considering that this ships from South Korea, it’s really hard to return (shipping cost). Not good!
The Leash Access Hole
The leash access hole is so tiny, we’re not even sure you can call that a (w)hole, it’s probably a half.
Most times, after getting the dog raincoat, you have to open up the leash access hole further so it can fit your leash.
Unless your leash is as thin as fishing line, it won’t pass through this tiny hole.
The problem with opening the hole by yourself is that, a little mistake and the material is ripped; raincoat is ruined; money is wasted.

What Do Other People Think?
The sizing is too confusing that people are irritated. They also hate the fact that returning is quite stressful.
Typically, what you see online is not always what you get, but sadly, what you get is what you have to keep.
What Do We Think?
Very bad product. You don’t tell people a size and then upon arrival, they see another thing. It’s too annoying and frustrating.
Plus, it’s not even affordable. How can you be spending so much for something that’s so far from the best? Unimpressive!
