So Below is the information from the manufacture about this product which by the way is absolutely fab! So it is by the company Mikki and it has been aimed at doodles due to their coat naturally needing a little bit more TLC however we have seen this and know what a life saver they are from experience.
We have been using the large (20inch) on our male collie Bowser who normally wears a 24inch equa fleece so these are generous on sizing although it does come up his bum a little. From testing this has been great at helping in the wet and muddy weather to keep his coat a little less maintenance and then insides of the van after a walk too! They also help keep those all important muscles warmed up when needed due to being windproof too. These are silk lined making the least friction possible with your dog and also means they compliment well to being layer with fleeces below for when the extra warmth is needed as these are lightweight.
Not only have we been testing it but our friends with doodles have to and have found the coat to do exactly as it says on the tin so to speak. You will see in the pictures Ned and Archie both feature and although Ned doesn't look the utmost impressed I know his owners Matt and Rosie definitely are!
