Chloe’s Closet: Dog rain jacket that works with an Easy Walk harness
It’s bucketing down rain here in Seattle, so I have water-repellant dog jackets on my mind (Chloe’s a pretty sturdy little dog, but a jacket helps her stay out longer). The trick is to find a jacket that works with Chloe’s Easy Walk harness, which sounded gimmicky when I bought it but turns out to do a good job of keeping her from pulling. It fastens in front, low under her regular collar, and a lot of jackets (and pretty much all sweaters) won’t work with it. Here’s a good-quality one that will: The TeckelKlub Slicker (Chloe’s is olive green) has a waterproof exterior, a fleece-like lining, and sensible Velcro fasteners at neck and belly. Apparently the exterior is also breathable, which is a fine thing. It looks great, Chloe moves comfortably in it, and it’s structured so the harness falls well below the neck fastener.
