Cold Weather Protection for Tripawds

Don’t let the weather slow you down! Keep tripawds warm and dry in winter weather with the K-9 Overcoat all weather dog jacket from Ruff Wear. Read on for complete review and sizing instructions.

NOTE: For front leg Tripawds, please consider the Cloud Chaser Dog Jacket. Without both front limbs, the K9 Overcoat may shift slightly around the body on some dogs.

When you layer up to head outdoors, protect your best friend as well with the K-9 Overcoat. Compared to their Climate Changer fleece dog sweater, the K-9 Overcoat is Ruff Wear’s most abrasion resistant coat – best for cold days with slight precipitation, or when light rain or snow is a possibility.

Ruff Wear K-9 Overcoat Lichen Green
(Lichen Green color no longer available.)

Designed to be warm and durable…wind and water-resistant. The recycled fleece insulating layer is enclosed in a durable recycled polyester shell, keeping body heat in, and the elements out. Auto-lock buckles on each side of the jacket provide easy on/off.

Ideal for use during any cold weather activity, the K-9 Overcoat provides warmth and comfort for tripawds in the coldest of climates. This two-layer overcoat repels light moisture and wind.

  1. My dog is missing her front left leg and her coat slips sideways to look like a one shouldered cape. I don’t quite understand how it works. Are there left-shouldered and right-shouldered coats? Do you have any videos of how they are put on?

  2. Ruffwear K-9 Overcoat: states coat is for tripawd but I look at a conversation that says it’s not meant for 3-legged dogs so I guess I’m confused and just wanting to know about product before I purchase for my 3-legged dog who is missing her front right leg.

    • Yes, we recommend the Ruffwear apparel for Tripawds, but no, none of there cots or sweaters are designed specifically for amputee dogs. Some members have sewn up the spare leg hole, but please note that this would void any warranty or return. We hope this addresses your concern, thank you!
