"Thanks so much for Poppy's Ice-Barker, it made the world of difference to her last winter. With Poppy's supermodel proportions (ie: legs so long that she can't see her toes, big chest and tiny waist) she was shivering so much that her teeth chattered when we went for walks last winter. Not good for a growing puppy! The Ice-Barker ensured she could walk and play and stay happy and healthy whilst building up muscle (unlike those show dog cousins of hers, who live in kennels all their lives). She is looking forward to a new coat for winter 2011 so she can continue to run off leash, knock on the doors at edgewater and scare tourists with her beautiful huge toothy grin!"

"Thank you D-Fa for helping my Bichon, Louie, survive! He was hit by a car in August and the brain injury meant he had trouble regulating his body temperature. The Ice-Barker was perfect - he wore it day and night for weeks! The jacket kept him warm when he was cold, as well as being breathable so he didn't get hot. We were so relieved to have it, knowing he was comfortable all the time. For us, it was a life saver!"

"My name is Blade - The Super Sniffer, a deer stalking, pheasant-flushing, duck-retrieving German Wirehaired Pointer. GWPs aren't renowned for being nutritional over-achievers (we don't get fat easily) and after 3 years hunting with me, making Mum and Dad share their sleeping bags at night and finding that I shivered all my weight off, and despite getting more food every time we came home I couldn't take me out in public because I look like an refugee from an SPCA camp. I'm no light weight 'sooky' dog though, I swim 365 days of the year, regardless of the temperature, so my Ice-Barker is perfect for warming me up and keeping me toasty warm after all that effort. I LOVE my Ice-barker."

"I wanted to let you know this side of winter that Spy has worn his Snoodle and Ice-Barker almost every day. It was a Godsend given that this was one of the coldest winters in many years. We received many compliments as he walked through the neighborhood wearing them. Given that we needed the large size Ice Barker for his long body, the Snoodle was very much appreciated as it enabled both his cervical and lumbar spines to be covered with the wool. I am delighted to report that we will celebrate his 13th birthday next month and that he continues to do well."

"The Ice-Barker is an excellent jacket for my older and short-haired dogs during the months when the temperature drops. The merino still creates warmth even if it’s wet, which makes it a great choice for after the dogs have been swimming and are still a bit damp. The design ensures that the dogs stay warm all over, and it’s a really nice jacket for them to sleep in too. The dogs love wearing this jacket and it has all the warmth of the traditional bulky lined jackets, without the weight or bulk."
