This Dog Raincoat Has Thousands of Near-Perfect Reviews on Amazon — And Will Actually Keep Your Pup Dry
Even dogs who hate wearing clothes will be comfortable in this poncho
Spring is on the way, which means it’s time to start pulling out all that rain gear — including any stormy weather essentials for your pet. We already found this best-selling, totally waterproof Charles River rain jacket for humans (you’re welcome!), and now we’ve found an equally cute highly-rated rain jacket for your loyal companion, too: the RC Pet Products Packable Dog Rain Poncho ($12; amazon.com).
The rain poncho comes in 16 different fun patterns and bright colors that will make your pooch stand out on a gloomy day, including a rubber duck pattern, classic bright yellow, lime green with polka dots, adorable fish pattern, and bold red print with tropical leaves. The lightweight coat is water resistant, and it comes with a hood, adjustable velcro waistband, and leash insert. There’s also a matching carrying pouch, so you can easily throw it in your bag before any long walks. Plus, the available sizes range from double extra small to triple extra large, so you can find the perfect fit for your pup, no matter their size.

In fact, over 1,600 shoppers have given this durable poncho a perfect, five-star review. Customers keep saying that their dogs actually like having the coat on because it’s light but still protects them from rain showers. “I purchased this dog rain poncho for my very large (100+ lbs) Great Pyrenees. The XXX Large fits him perfectly. It’s quick and easy to put on him and stays in place quite well,” one reviewer wrote. “This poncho keeps him very dry—even after a 30 minute walk in the rain. I do have to dry off his feet (obviously), but he doesn’t need to shake off after wearing it. I keep a clean house, and better smelling dog!”
Another customer wrote that her dog actually wouldn’t go out in the rain before purchasing this poncho. “I got a size medium for my 18 lb. dog, and it’s a perfect fit. He doesn’t love clothes, but he is pretty comfortable in this. He wouldn’t go out in the rain before, but this poncho does the trick,” she wrote. “It is secure and adjustable to fit, so when he shakes, it doesn’t slip around. I washed it on cold in the delicate cycle, and it was fine! It air dried quickly too.”
If you’ve been caught in the rain with your pup before, you might want to grab this raincoat before those April showers start to sneak up on the both of you!
