Ancol 2 In 1 Harness Dog Coat Review
A dog coat that works in all weathers - both hot and cold - is a massive plus for dog owners. We took a close look at the Ancol 2 In 1 Harness Dog Coat - Black to see how it stacked up.
The Ancol 2 In 1 Harness Dog Coat - In Summary
The Ancol 2 In 1 Harness Dog Coat - Black has an attractive, modern design and packs a lot into its two layers. The '2 in 1' relates to the two layers of the coat: a top layer, which is waterproof and wipes clean, and a bottom layer, which is fleecy for warmth.
Together, this provides great protection from the cold and rain. When things heat up, you can detach the fleece layer to prevent your dog getting too hot.
The fleece itself feels super-soft, and the little touches - like the popper fastenings - are very well finished.
Now that your pooch is warm on its walks, treat him or her to some creature comforts with the Ancol Self Heating Pet Blanket Pad.
