In anticipation of April Showers, and because everybody suddenly has a lot more time for online shopping, it may be the season to invest in a raincoat for your beloved pup. Not only do they keep fur dry and escape the “wet dog” stench, but they also help weather-sensitive dogs brave the wet outdoors. There is nothing like a dog that just won’t use the bathroom before you need to head out to an 8-hour workday. Plus, with the addition of rain boots, your dog can look like the talk of the block that they have always deserved to be. Thankfully, once again, Chewy.com is available to come to you and your dog’s rescue- all from the comfort of your couch.
To help, here is a list of some of their absolute best sellers for pet raingear:
The Frisco Fairbanks Fleece-Lined Dog Wrap comes in sizes ranging from small to extra-large, all for under $15. Not only is it fashionable, with an adorable belt detailing, it is also practical for every dog. It has a soft faux fleece interior lining as well as a tough, water-resistant outer layer with a high collar to provide extra elemental coverage. And, if you like to squeeze in those after-dinner walks, the reflective piping throughout will help keep you and your pup visible and safe.
Find the coat impressive? Pair it with Frisco All Weather Boots. They have paw sizes from a 4 to a 7 for less than $12. These boots keep sensitive paws dry and protected from snow, rain, and salt. They even work in the summer to protect paw pads from hot pavements. There is just nothing cuter than a dog learning to walk in a new pair of booties so they also come with a showing of the-cutest-thing-you’ve-ever-seen.
If you’re more worried about rain than other weather overall, check out Ethical Pet Fashion Rainy Days Slicker Raincoat, in yellow. This classic yellow coat is available in sizes extra small and small for under $11.00. If you need a larger coat, Frisco Whales Raincoat is available in small, medium and large sizes for the same price. Both coats are water-resistant with belly straps to ensure they stay snug to those puppy bellies. Nothing better than a confident dog flaunting their stuff.
And, Ethical Pet also has their own line of fleece boots: Ethical Pet Fashion Lookin’ Good Fleece Boots that range in size from extra small to extra-large. These are all under $10 and will protect puppy paws from outside weather elements. Plus, they have no-skid PVC soles to help add walking stability. This can definitely help them feel comfortable while they’re inside waiting for you to put your shoes on.
It’s important to prepare yourself and your dog for the upcoming season ahead of time, and since we know it’s going to be bringing plenty of rain, why not do a little online shopping? Your box will be at your front door before you know it, and the two of you will be ready to take on April.
