The revamping of the Hurtta collection has brought improved material properties. Thanks to persistent product development efforts, Hurtta’sHoundtex laminated outdoor fabrics will be even smoother, softer and quieter when in use than before. This significantly improves the comfort of use of rainwear and thermal garments, especially for small dogs and dogs unaccustomed to wearing garments. The dirt-repelling, waterproofness and breathability of Houndtex® laminated outdoor fabrics match those of high-quality outdoor outfits designed for people. The materials approved for use in the Hurtta Outdoors collection were developed for especially demanding conditions and heavy wear, making them perfect for outdoor canine activities.
All Hurtta outfits and equipment are machine washable. When cared for properly, they will endure regular use for several years. Recommended washing guidelines are included in the care instructions for each garment. Always follow the care recommendations given. Washing the garment at the wrong temperature, fast spinning or tumble-drying may harm the taping of the seams or other details of the garment. Avoid using fabric conditioners, as they impair the waterproofness of the Houndtex® coating.
*Dog garments are recommended to be washed inside out using mild and allergy-friendly detergents.
All Hurtta Houndtex® products are water-proof and dirt-proof. Over time, heavy wear and washing may weaken the products’ waterproofness. This is easy to restore with protective agents sold in sporting goods stores.
