Dog coat Hotter - Dog
Absolutely ideal for drying wet dogs after a wet shoot day or swim, or just for keeping them warm when the mercury really drops, the Hotter Dog fleece coat is very popular with working and pet dog owners alike.

Neatly darted to fit the dog’s back, it features a sturdy adjustable belly strap to keep it in place. Available in 10 sizes in black, red, royal blue, forest green and grape.
