Water Proof, Water Resistant or Water Repellent?

Buying blankets and coat to protect against ice, snow and sleet or even rain can be tricky especially when words like water proof, water resistant, and water repellent are used simultaneously. You may think they mean the same, but watch out because they don’t. In fact, what you may not know is that water resistant offers the lowest level of protection against water entering through the blanket. Water repellent simply means the blanket repels water, but it does not completely keep it out. Water proof is the highest level of protection against water in that it does not allow water to penetrate the blanket layers and will keep your dog dry. Picking the one you want will depend on the routine of your dog. Any outside time will most definitely not want just water resistant. For more information, consult with your veterinarians Washington DC.
