MORLICH WATERPROOF DOG COAT
Please note that the breed guide is a suggestion only and I would always recommend measuring your dog to ensure that the coat you purchase is a good fit.
* Please note that the length of the coat will be slightly longer than the length in the chart below as the coat is sloped at the back to provide cover for the rear of your dog. For example, the Intermediate coat is made to suit a dog with a back length of approx 54cm, but the length of the coat is 57cm.
If your dog has an upright tail please leave a note in the comments box at checkout and the coat will be made without the extra sloping, and will match the length in the chart below.
I also make custom size coats and the price of the coats are based on the length of the coat. There are separate product pages for custom sizes for each of the coat styles.
Materials and Care
- Polyester Microfibre outer with waterproof, windproof and breathable coating. The 2 layer fabric has a soft peached face making it quiet to wear.
- Polyester inner
As it is a lightweight fabric it is advisable that the coat is not worn in areas where it can catch or snag on branches or undergrowth as it may rip the lightweight technical fabric.
To prolong the life of your waterproof coat, wash it as little as possible as each time the coat is washed it shortens the life of the waterproof coating and seam tape.
It is preferable to lightly wipe off the dirt with a damp cloth, or fill a bucket with cold water and slosh the coat around to remove the dirt and then allow to air dry. Do not wring or squeeze your coat.
It is not recommended that waterproof clothing is washed with detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners as the chemicals can breakdown the composition of the fibres with each wash and strip the coat of its waterproofing coating. Instead a tech wash solution can be used (such as Nikwax Tech Wash), pure soap flakes, or wash on a water cycle only, ensuring that the machine is clean of all detergents first by running a rinse cycle first.
If you notice that the fabric of your coat is absorbing rather than repelling water, you may wish to reproof your coat.
Keep your dog warm and dry in a stylish raincoat when out and about in wet or cold weather.

These waterproof coats are made from peached coated microfibre (the material feels like the skin of a peach). The coated microfibre is a lightweight technical sportswear fabric which is both waterproof and breathable and quiet to wear. As it is a lightweight fabric it is advisable that the coat is not worn in areas where it can catch or snag on branches or undergrowth as it may rip the lightweight technical fabric.
The coats have three reflective strips to aid visibility in the dark.
Choose from a lightweight airtex lining, or a warmer fleece lining. This raincoat is ideal if you are looking for a waterproof coat without any added warmth as it is lightweight if made with the airtex mesh lining. Should you require a waterproof coats with extra warmth than choose a fleece lining instead.
(Please note that the blackwatch tartan fleece I currently have is different to previous and is a larger pattern)
The coats slip over your dogs head and have an elasticated v-neck for ease of putting on and off and for a more comfortable fit. They have an underbelly strap to keep the chest nice and dry, and fasten with a buckle and adjustable strap around the dog's middle.
All the raincoats now come with a zipped harness hole so that your dog can wear their harness under the jacket.
Should you intend on using a harness under the jacket, then please measure your dog when wearing it as this may affect the most suitable size of coat. Harnesses with handles on them are not suited to be worn under the coat.
They have colour co-ordinated elastic leg straps which are sewn within the same peached fabric as the main body to ensure that the elastic doesn't catch on your dog's fur.
Really, really happy with the coat. It's one of the standard sizes and fits our (very long-bodied) spaniel like a glove. Also does a great job of keeping the feathering on his chest clean and dry, in addition to being a great rainproof coat!
My three terries live the coats as they fit perfectly and are comfortable to wear. They keep warm and dry, but don't interfee with playing, running or browsing. I can okay recommend the coats to everybody.
Rain jacket came when indicated. It is a very good fit for my working cocker spaniel, she is petite and v slim. I went for mesh lining as she is a very active dog. She looks fab in it.
This is a second coat for our boy - the first is still going strong after several years but he could do with a backup for really wet weeks when you struggle to get things dry! He's not a fan of getting too hot, so this coat with its thin lining is perfect for keeping him dry without getting too warm. Excellent manufacture as always from Freckles!
So pleased with the waterproof coat for my old girl. Just what she’s needs to keep the rain and the wind off, perfect fit, beautifully made. Thank you Freckles :-)
