Don’t let the cold weather keep you or your dog down! Chilly temperatures are an excellent reason to keep your dog cozy, warm, and dry in a stylish outer layer such as a winter dog coat or jacket. One popular choice is the Carhartt Dog Chore Coat, one of our top five picks for dog coats and jackets in 2020.

Here’s our review.
Rugged workwear brand Carhartt makes this sturdy, lightly insulated dog work coat featuring rugged cotton duck canvas. It’s great for high-energy dogs who need light protection from the elements, those who visit rugged worksites, or pups who regularly keep their humans company while adventuring or hiking through the great outdoors.
This coat attaches at the neck and chest via velcro, and sports two working pockets for treats, bags, and other walking essentials. In addition to the classic brown, it’s available in three other colors.
Note: We tested this coat is size medium, and found it ran true to size. It was a little too big for our senior pug model, Shirley, but fit a healthy corgi named Biscuit perfectly, with ample room for his wider chest and thicker neck.
As with any piece of dog clothing, be sure to measure your dog before ordering to determine the best fit. If you’re not sure where to start, check out our handy guide, How to Measure Your Dog for a Harness, Clothes, and Costumes.Shop on Chewy
