Phoebe in her 'Reflector' coat Extreme use of the 'Reflector' materialThe 'Reflector' heat-deflecting coat is the ultimate coat for dogs which need to be shielded from the sun.

The 'Reflector' uses an aluminised material which is proven to be of all-around superior performance and quality, complemented with a light cotton lining. The aluminised material is used by manufacturers, engineers and designers specialising in products which are subject to extreme performance and environmental conditions. These include fire, radiant heat, high-temperature steam, molten metals (as illustrated alongside) and non-FR infrared heat and sunlight. The unique five-layer textile structure reflects 95% of infrared heat, and offers an efficient high-temperature barrier material with superior durability.

A polypropylene webbing strap - which has a large adjustment range - is fastened around the waist using a robust snap-click fastening.

The aluminized fabric is attractively finished in a black edging tape.

The 'Reflector' coat is designed for quality, practicality and durability.

The layers of the 'Reflector' aluminised materialThe outer side of the fabric is a highly-reflective aluminised surface while the inner surface is hard-wearing polyester. Between these two layers are five further layers - all five are illustrated alongside on the left.

It is extremely important to keep the outer surface clean so that it may continue to perform at peak efficiency. We recommend following these care and cleaning instructions:

  • Clean by gently rubbing the surface with a soft cloth or sponge containing mild soap.
  • Rinse thoroughly.
  • Dry the coat by hanging in a well ventilated, shaded, area.
  • Use a fan to circulate the air if necessary.
  • Do not store the coat wet or with any chemical contamination.

14Choosing the best size of 'Reflector' coat for your dog

At the end of this process, you're going to receive a coat in the post. We'd like everyone to be delighted when you open the package and find that you've ordered the correct size!

Please take a few minutes to measure your dog and look at the fitting table lower down on this page. Ordering the correct coat size will avoid the delay, inconvenience and expense which will result if you need to exchange the coat for another size.

Measuring for your 'Reflector' heat-reflecting coat1. Measure the length of your dog. As shown in the illustration alongside, measure the length of its back - from the base of the neck to the base of the tail.

2. Measure around your dog's waist. As shown in the illustration alongside, just behind the rib cage, measure all the way around your dog.

12Now look at the table below. Identify the measurement which is closest to your dog's length. A coat which is an inch too long is better than one that is an inch too short - unless your dog is a breed which has a tail which sticks up, in which case it will be better for the coat to be a little short. Having identified the best length measurement, now check the waist range for that size coat. Your dog's waist measurement will need to be within that range. If your dog's waist measurement is outside that range then consider increasing or decreasing your choice of coat length.
