Alpenhitze Custom Coats

Alpenhitze™ coats are cut and sewn to your dog's measurements! I work "one on one" with each client to assure every coat fits like a glove.

Polartec is a ultra high end, high tech extreme condition soft shell fabric that's super strong, lite in weight, and weather tough, you'll be amazed at the warmth it provides!

Safety Sewn In!

Over three-feet of genuine 3m Scotchlite #8910 retroreflective fabric is sewn onto every Dane size coat! These "safety stripes", rated 500 lumen's, reflect incredibly bright against the slightest light. We sew the 3M down the top/main seam, on each side of the Lycra shoulder panels, on the rear/center of the collar and in each of the four hip darts. This affords 360-degrees of visibility and safety on the darkest winter nights, even when using the dimmest flashlight.

Alpenhitze custom dog coats are one of many custom high performance products planned for the jZ canine and all about Great Danes line. High quality, high performance dog clothing, gear & accessories. You will be amazed when Alpenhitze™ arrives at your door!

Alpenhitze™ Features..

Professionally built using the finest materials and hardware, our custom dog coats are guaranteed to fit. Excellent wet weather properties and water repellant, extremely lite in weight, yet incredibly warm. Our proprietary design allows for adjustment, all we need are a few easy measurements and you're assured a custom fit.

Top Seam:
Top seam is sewn flat, will not irritate and is contoured to follow the curve of you dogs top line eliminating shifting, unlike traditional dog jackets.

Unique Proprietary Collar:
Collar is fully adjustable with a draw cord closure. The "floating collar" design is unlike anything else you've seen and can be removed for warmer days as it's fastened to the coat with 2 heavy duty 5/8" nickel snaps. (Coming soon interchangeable hoodie and full wrap collars.) Both jZ canine and Alpenhitze logo are embroidered, no more tags. Collar is reinforced with pvc boning and will not fold, bend, or flap in the wind!

Proprietary Lycra Panels:
Front/chest panel is fastened to the coat with a continuous length of heavyweight equestrian 2-way stretch Lycra. This runs vertically at the shoulder offering free range of movement while running, playing, or stretching out.

Full Chest/Belly Panel:
Wraps under, up and around the body, fastened in place with a non slip PVC Cam-Lock clamp.

Full Hip Coverage:
Unique rear cut has "sewn in darts" with extra 3M Scotchlite trim for improved night time visibility from the rear. Our coat completely covers and wraps the hips and is ideal for dogs with hip dysplasia, arthritis, joint ailments and medical conditions.

Rear Leg Straps:
Adjustable rear leg straps keep Alpenhitze in place! When secured around the rear thighs our custom dog coat stays put! The coat will not shift or fly up an even on a younger dog with a burst of "puppy energy", or the "zoomies".

Rear leg straps are rare on most dog coats and our clients often write.. "Your coat has become part of our dog."

Fabric Care..

Air dry in a well ventilated area after use. Keep the coat free of loose dirt or sand by shaking it off or brushing with a soft bristled brush. Our custom dog coats are machine washable in cold water only, avoid fabric softener and allow to drip dry.
