The best dog raincoats you can get under $20 right now

As the cooler — and often rainier — months of the year roll around, many of us are unpacking raincoats, waterproof boots, and other wet-weather gear. While you’re organizing your seasonal wardrobe, you should consider adding a dog rain jacket to your collection, too.

Even just a walk can be enough to give your furry friend a chill, so a rain jacket for dogs will be both a smart and rewarding purchase. Here are a few of our most affordable favorites:
