I keep getting hostile questions about the gear we use on our dogs. I'll go over it again, since logic seems to be an issue. From now through August, it might rain every day in Florida. We train in public venues. No one wants to see a wet dog in a store or restaurant. It is simple courtesy, as well as basic care for the dog, to cover it up. Do you put a raincoat on your child? That dog is a living creature and there are means by which to maximize his comfort. I don't let my kids get soaked and my dogs will get the same care no matter what anyone's outdated 1930's attitude is toward "dressing up Fifi." Do the outfits have to be boring? We train in theme parks. I enjoy color and so do the public. If you are so scared of public opinion that you will not properly care for your dog as you would a helpless human, perhaps you should rethink the dedication and commitment it takes to have a service dog.
