I really loved this coat when first purchased, I lead a very active lifestyle and have 3 dogs. So I needed a warm versatile coat. This coat exceeded all my expectations. I had only worn the coat a few times before I had to wash it (dirty doggy paw marks) and followed the wash/drying instructions to a tee and the fur on the hood is ruined and has destroyed the asthetic of the coat so much so that I don't want to wear it anymore. It's very unfortunate.
