Dog Biker Clothing

Biker Vest Harness

     To complete the whole biker look you should check out the Doggles biker jacket. With embroidered details that are designed to look like barbed wire, this look is not for a shy dog. In addition, the skull charm dangling from the back lets everyone know your dog means business.

     The skull and crossbones charm hangs off a loop where you can also attach their leash. This means that you can easily switch from the bike to a walk if they need to take a quick bathroom break. You will also not have to worry about the jacket falling off during this walk because it closes with tape that hook and loops.

     Unfortunately, we can not recommend this jacket for larger dogs since the sizes only go from teacup to small. The smallest size called the teacup size has a 4 inch back with an 8-inch neck. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the largest size called small has an 8 inch back and between a 17 to the 19-inch neck.

Dog Jean Jacket

     If leather biker jackets are not what you and your dog are into then do not worry. For a different rebellious look, SILD has a jean jacket. The 3 jackets they offer may be made of denim but they do not look the same. Each one has a different design even including one that has details to look like a cat.

     To close the jacket there are buttons but unlike regular jackets, you can not unbutton them if it fits too tight. This is why you need to measure and make sure that you have the right size. The company offers six different sizes ranging from extra small to extra extra large.

     With a measuring tape, they recommend measuring the neck girth, chest girth, and also the length of the back. One detail this company stresses is to measure loosely and not tighten the measuring tape so the jacket fits comfortably. In the end, no matter if you have a Chihuahua or a bulldog they will be ready to ride with this jacket.
