Not all the things we recommend here at The Pets Master are about health and safety. Sometimes, we just want to help you and your dog look ridiculously good. Leather jackets for humans make big fashion statements. Leather jackets for dogs are stylish, but also add another layer of warmth and protection for their bodies. The thicker leather, even when it’s faux leather, is just a great way to keep cozy and look fantastic
Do dogs really need jackets?
No, most dogs don’t need jackets. However, there are exceptions, and you as the pet parent will know best. In general smaller dogs and short hair breeds can use the extra warmth jackets provide when the weather gets below chilly. If your dog is shivering with tail between legs when you take them for a walk in December, a sweater or coat is a clear and easy solution.
Also, if you plan on going for long adventures outside in cool weather, a jacket adds that little extra reassurance your pup is warm.
It also helps that dogs in jackets, especially leather jackets, are absolutely adorable.

What makes a good dog leather jacket?
We looked at a lot of different leather dog jackets to make our picks. We also want to be as transparent as possible about our selection process. So, to keep things clear, here’s what we looked for in our leather jacket choices.
While real leather works for human clothes, it can be a real pain to maintain and clean. So, for our dog leather jackets, we looked for fake leather, or PU leather, options. Not only is PU leather more durable, it’s also easy to clean.
Going hand-in-hand with material, we checked the lining of the leather jackets for dogs. There are some dog jackets that are purely for fashion, but if your dog needs to stay warm, you’ll want that extra layer. We made sure to add plenty of options with a warm material interior.
We want our dogs to be comfortable in their leather jackets, which is why having multiple size options is so important. In order to get the best fit for your dog, you need clear measurements and varying sizes.
We also looked at leather jackets that had a little extra something. Many of our choices include badges, leash pins, or even matching leashes!
Genuine leather or PU leather?
We usually prefer to keep things real here at The Pets Master. However, when it comes to dog leather jackets, PU leather actually works better.
Genuine leather feels amazing and might even last longer if handled carefully. However, real leather needs to be meticulously maintained and can’t be exposed to rain or mud too much.
We opted for PU leather for our dog leather jackets because it’s a much more durable material. You don’t have to worry about your pup rolling in the mud or playing in the rain with a PU leather jacket.
Real leather is also much more expensive. We understand buying yourself an expensive leather jacket, but dogs have the tendency to ruin their clothes. It’s more cost effective to purchase PU leather jackets for your dog.
