All Hurtta outfits and equipment are washable. When kept well, 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- and dirtproof. Over time, heavy wear and washing may weaken the products’ waterproofness, which is easy to restore with protective agents sold in sporting goods stores.
