Outward Hound Rain Coat Review

This is a post from my professional blog, but it has a give away so I wanted to give you all a chance to win!

Well I am officially one of those people who make my dog wear clothes.  This rain jacket has converted me.  My dog has never liked going out in the rain (or snow).  However, if she doesn’t get her hike in, she’s CRAZY for the rest of the day so I go out in any weather.
(My dog gets looney when we take out the camera so although she looks heart meltingly adorable in the jacket, I don’t have a picture of it.) Here is a pic from their website:
When the Foul Weather Rain Jacket first arrived I was amazed at how close it looked to something I would wear to be out in the elements.  I put it on my dog and let her walk around the house for a while.  She was comfortable enough that she didn’t try to get it off and she played fetch for a while in the jacket.
It was really easy to put on the off of her.  The jacket has two velcro closures and elastics that go under your dog’s legs.  I had it on her in less than one minute.
The jacket is breathable which was a big concern of mine.  After all, I don’t want to sweat in my rain coat, why should my dog.
So I took my dog out in the rain in the jacket to see how it would go.  She seemed more comfortable in the rain first of all.  She was willing to walk longer.  She seemed comfortable in the jacket the whole time she was wearing it.  And, as an added bonus, she didn’t smell like wet dog when we got back to the car!
