Q: 1. What is a Harness Coat?
A: A Harness Coat, as the name implies, is a dog harness and a dog coat, all-in-one. It is very simple to put on.
Q: 2. Why does a dog need a Harness Coat?
There are many reasons dogs should have a Harness Coat:
- A dog harness has many features; it not only holds the dog safe and secure, unlike a simple collar, it also prevents undue pressure on the pet's throat, which may cause problems as the dog ages.
- Dogs need coats because they are typically kept indoors. When they go outside they face the same elements humans do and they need protection to stay warm and dry. Your pet will be less likely to catch a cold, which could be transferred to family members.
- Keeping your dog dry can have multiple benefits, for instance: your dog is more comfortable and your home stays dryer. For more benefits see Rain Coats.

Q: 4. How do I measure my dog?
A: You can often select the proper size Dog Harness Coat, by simply using the dogs weight.
To measure a dog properly; measure the girth, right behind the front legs. The second measurement, the length, should begin at a point straight up the front leg to where it intersects with the backbone. From Here, measure back to the beginning of the tail.
Q: 5. Is the Dog Harness Coat washable?
