It’s natural to love dogs.
And after seeing so many portrayals of dogs in films and all over social media, if you didn’t already own one you’d be sorely tempted to get one yourself right now. In fact, even if you already owned a dog or two, you probably wouldn’t hesitate to add to your canine family.
But while they’re adorable to look at and can be a great salve for our emotions, what many people don’t realize is that these furry friends take effort to maintain.
In a way, it’s almost like raising a child.This unfortunate detail has led to some inexperienced dog owners abandoning their dogs after experiencing the shock of owning a dog for the first time.
Fortunately, most dog owners are not like that at all and accept all the difficulties of caring for the dogs as a small price to pay for the joy that they bring. But just because one is willing to accept these difficulties doesn’t mean that one shouldn’t find ways to make the job a little bit easier.
For the longest time, dogs shedding fur has made it a real chore to clean the house. But one company had the genius idea of making Shed Defender, a onesie for dogs which they featured on Shark Tank in 2018.
While it may look a bit funny at first, this little thing not only keeps your dog’s hair off your furniture, it also helps keep the pooch warm and provides some protection from allergens. Of course, shedding is a natural process but at least all the hair is collected in the onesie and that makes it easier to clean.
Made of breathable athletic mesh fabric that has a four-way stretch, Shed Defender comes in different sizes: extra-extra small, extra small, small, medium, large, extra large, and extra-extra large.You can choose colors in black, hot pink, purple, red, and royal blue.
The product is available in Amazon Prime and while the price varies depending on size, expect to spend anywhere from $39.99 and $59. 99. Shed Defender was rated an average of 3. 4 out of 5 stars based on 400 reviews.
One satisfied buyer wrote: “It fit my pug perfectly. He has allergies and I use it to prevent him from chewing on his lower legs and the inside of his thighs. It’s the only bodysuit that covers his complete body.”
Not only will you be helping your dog, but the company also uses part of the proceeds to help pets in need.
“Shed Defender is a family business committed to supporting animals who need a little extra love!” the website says. “Through our Paw it Forward program we donate a portion of our sales to a different animal shelter, rescue center, or adoption group each month.”
