With the cold season just around the corner, what are some of the ways you’ve come up with to keep your training or working dogs warm and cozy? Hurtta, one of the leading manufacturers of dog outfits, collars and gear has agreed to giveaway a Summit Parka and an Ultimate Warmer so that you could keep your dogs comfortable during the cold season.
Hurtta’s Summit Parka is a beautifully and efficiently designed to complement the thermal insulation capacity of
short-haired dogs and dogs with no undercoat, preventing them from freezing in unfavorable weather conditions. The highly technical winter jacket protects your dog’s most important muscle groups, chest and the sensitive abdomen area. Quick to put on and take off, the jacket is particularly well suited for warming up the muscles of active dogs before or after training. The product has a water-resistant and breathable Houndtex® coating and high-visibility 3M reflectors.
The Ultimate Warmer not only gives your dog protection from the cold weather, it is also absolutely comfortable and can be used during training in the winter. The material has been laminated with a waterproof and breathable Houndtex® membrane to keep your dog dry and warm even after lengthy training sessions. The high collar, protective front and long rear hem protect your dog’s most important muscle groups, neck and chest. Made from smooth and soundless material, the jacket allows complete freedom of movement.
The winners will be allowed to choose the color of the Summit Parka or Ultimate Warmer that they want!
As a special thanks to our members and friends for helping us encourage voluntary acceptance of Service Dog training and behavior standards, we’re giving away free gear, books, treats and more with our 2015 Howly Jowly Gear Giveaway.

We live in what is known as the refrigerator of Nevada. In the north eastern part of the state Elko it can get to 20 to 40° below zero ! What little pup wouldn’t enjoy a blanket?

Wow, these look amazingly warm. We’re traveling to Canada for Xmas so my service dog definitely needs one of these!

With raising a SDiT, I’m starting to realize how much gear they go through. I have a Standard Poodle who needs to be kept trimmed short so I can handle the grooming, but we’re heading to Boston in January and it’s gonna be bitter cold there. This coat looks great!

While we live in PHX, we often travel back home to Chicago for the holidays. Definitely will be needing a warm jacket there!

My SDiT and I live in central WI where it gets very very cold. One of these would be a lifesaver for us when walking around on campus or anywhere really!

I live in Duluth, Minnesota! I have a 7 month old puppy SDiT from Chatanooga, Tennessee. She has almost no belly hair and needs this sooooo much! I live on SS Disability, so there is nothing left for equipment after dog food, vet and bills. Regal the rebel would so LOVE this super warm looking coat! Got boots to go with it?

We’re in FL but we actually do get cold days (and some very cold nights). Bella is short haired and gets oh-so-cold, oh-so-fast! She’d love something like this to hunker down in and stay cozy!

I love the design! I think it’d be a great piece to have when it snows here in Georgia. The area doesn’t have any snow plows, so we walk, and walk, and walk! I think I would worry a lot less about my SD if I knew he wasn’t going to get too cold. Saving up for some snow boots!

My service dog would love one of these warm Hurtta jackets for our very cold New England winters. Love the easy on and off of the Summit Parka!

Maurice and I are in Colorado where it gets very cold in the winter. We get a lot of snow – sometimes he’s elbow-deep in the snow, or more! He is a short haired dog that shivers even with a couple fleece jackets on. We limit our outside playtime in the snow because he just gets too cold.
We also spend time in the Pacific Northwest, right by Seattle, where it rains and rains and rains. He would love a nice, warm, waterproof jacket like this to keep him cozy.

I was elected recently to be a levee district trustee. My assistant (my service dog Lily) and I walk the levee daily. Even here in No. Calif. it gets very cold. I have nothing right now to protect her from the weather, except my old sweater. The Hurtta jacket would be so welcome!

Our service dogs in training travel all over the country while in training. Our organization is based in Phoenix, but our dogs regularly spend time in far colder climates. This jacket would help greatly to help acclimate our dogs in training to the colder temperatures!

SOLDJA IS AN OLDE ENGLISH BULLDOG AND WE WALK EVERYDAY RAIN SNOW OR SHINE. WE GO 6 TO 10 MILES AND HE DOES GET COLD. THE PARKA WOULD BE PERFECT FOR HIM.

My shepherd would LOVE these for our cold Canadian winters. <3

This coat looks like it would do the trick for my stability dog. The past few winters have gotten pretty cold here in North Carolina, especially since we live in the country surrounded by open fields. This would be a great way to keep my boy warm on those cold, windy days!
Jessica HD December 12, 2015
This would be great for my Service Dog in Training during our cold New York winters!

We get some really nasty ice storms and cold weather here in KC. Our SDiT’s would LOVE these to keep them warm!

My son has to walk to school everyday to get himself in gear for school, his service dog has to go along no matter the weather. The would love to get to stay warm and dry (from snow) too.
Rachelle Staten December 13, 2015
We travel up north for mini breaks from life and it gets pretty cold and even knows. It’s nice to have that extra level of protection from the weather.
Cindie Bacon December 13, 2015
Our son takes his service dog Jake to school with him, and they go out to recess together. Montana winters are cold, and Jake would love it!
Colleen December 14, 2015
We recently moved from sunny CA to wet and cold Oregon. I am a veteran and my SD, Franny would really appreciate the benefits of a good quality coat.
