    Default Rain coat recommendations?

    I have not had any luck finding a raincoat to fit my tri-color 2 yr old Sophie. Cavaliers are LONG. She measures 18" from neck to tail. When I buy for that measurement, the coat swallows her up around the girth. When I fit her for her girth (19"), the coat is way too long.
    Has anyone found a solution to this?
    I am tempted to buy one and pay to have it altered.
    i need help! I live in Seattle and it rains a lot here!

    You can buy a lot of designs that have toggles that can be tightened. I use a couple of Yap brand coats but don't know if they sell those in the US. I still haven't found the perfect raincoat though!

    THe best coat I have found are RC Pets (you can google site). THeir rain slickers are a great fit, wonderful colors and NO TOGGLES as they are very dangerous, they can get caught and really cause a problem if your dog gets snagged or they snap back and hit your dog.

    It would cost a bit more money, but perhaps you could buy the larger one and take it to an alterations shop.

    I'm so glad I know how to sew, because I've had to make alterations to dog coats in the past.

    I've heard that the Neopaws body suits are fantastic and they are very well priced:

    Here is the RC Pet Link

    I have yet to find a coat that fits the Cavalier better.

    Here is the link for ChillyDog, we have their coats too and they are also very good.
