How do you select a dog coat size for your dog?
Start with accurate measurements of your Dachshund. To order a Voyagers K9 Apparel rain coat, you'll need your dog's weight, length, and chest circumference.
Dachshund DOG SIZE CHART
Before you select a size, determine your dog's measurements. Watch the following video where Eng of Voyagers K9 Apparel and Greta the Greyhound show you how to measure your dog. After measuring your Dachshund, select the dog coat size that most closely matches your Dachshund's measurements.

DACHSHUND SIZE CHART WORKS FOR DACHSHUNDS ONLY
If your dog's chest girth falls outside the parameters of the size you choose, the coat will not fit. Verify the way you are measuring your dog. If your dog has unusual proportions, order a Custom Dog Rain Coat to fit your Dachshund's unique body size and shape. View our Dachshund Size Chart with measuring tips for more information. If you have other questions, please contact us.

Protect your dog with quality and comfort
Easy to put on and keep on, the Voyagers K9 Apparel rain coat blocks wind and rain to keep your Dachshund comfortable. Raindrops bead up and flow off the coated Nylon Taslan fabric. You'll even notice a softening of the "tap tap" sound of raindrops falling on the coat—and that's sure to please your Dachshund.
Voyagers K9 Apparel Dog Rain Coat Features
A: Reflective strip (select breeds) B: Counterbalance straps C: Leash opening D: Fully adjustable hood E: Pleated front
The Dachshund Dog Rain Coat uses a breed-specific design, tailored to the unique size and shape of a Dachshund.
Breed-specific design covers the dog's body completely for comfortable protection from rain and drizzle.
Nylon Taslan outer shell is a mid-weight fabric with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish that causes water to bead up and roll off before penetrating the fabric. Even after repeated washing, this retains its superiority as a waterproof fabric.
Mesh inner lining is a breathable fabric that feels good next to your dog's fur. Features a waterproof, microporous film that blocks wind and water for a drier, more comfortable dog.
Signature counterbalance straps wrap around your dog's belly from both sides to prevent the rain coat from shifting as your dog moves around.
Leash opening allows for quick, easy connection of the leash to your dog's collar.
Integrated hood is fully adjustable, extending up and over your dog's neck and ears for extra protection from the rain.
Pleated front adds extra fabric to accommodate your dog's stride.
Reflective strip across the back of the dog coat is a safety feature to draw attention to your dog in dark or dreary conditions.
Machine washable for your convenience. See washing instructions on the Care tab.
Will your dog wear a body harness?
If the answer is yes, we can add a customized harness opening to the Dachshund Dog Rain Coat for an extra charge. Refer to our Customizable Harness Opening guide for more information.
Choose a favorite color for your dog's rain coat
Voyagers K9 Apparel Dog Rain Coats are available in a variety of favorite standard and custom colors for the rainy season. If a particular size/color combination is out of stock, you may still order the rain coat as a Special Order. During our busy season, however, there may be a delay in shipment. Since we make special order and custom color dog coats individually, there is an extra charge and these dog coats cannot be exchanged, returned, or refunded. No matter the season, Voyagers K9 Apparel strives to fulfill orders quickly! View a file version of the Voyagers K9 Apparel Fabric Colors and Care guide. If you have any questions, please contact us.
