Fido Fleece® Coats and Booties
With a large portion of the country experiencing below-freezing temperatures and various mixes of precipitation, it’s more than likely that any trips you’ve been making out to work, the grocery store, or even just to get the mail are preceded by the donning of every available piece of winter gear you can find. If you have a dog, you’ve probably experienced concern about how the cold weather might be affecting them. Purchasing coats, sweaters and booties is a normal reaction to those concerns, but with the myriad of choices out there, it can be difficult to make a decision.
Let me tell you, the Fido Fleece® Coats by Premier Pet are definitely a great choice. Not only are they adorable (with 15 styles to choose from), but they come in 15 different sizes (which is a lot more than the usual five (XS, S, M, L, XL ), making it that much easier to find the perfect fit.
The coats are made of a soft, anti-pilling fleece that feels even softer and more durable than my own fleece coat! The closure is made of Velcro and sits atop your furry friend, rather than closing under the belly. From my experience, this makes it much easier to get the jacket on snuggly without a lot of pet-wrangling. However, your dog will have to “step in” to the “legs” of the coat, so if neither of you have experience putting on similar coats, it will take a bit of getting used to.
Points to Pawnder:
- When using the Fido Fleece® Coat we found that the back end of the jacket seemed to run a little big, while the front end was a little tight. We suggest finding a retailer near you, which will make things much easier if you need to exchange your new coat for a different size.
- The Velcro closure is a little noisy and may scare your pet. It’s a good idea to open the closure part way while they’re not wearing it to see if they’ll have an adverse reaction to the sound. (If they do, you could sit and pet them, and while talking lovingly and reassuringly to them open the Velcro slowly. This will help make the sound a positive thing for them. Repeat until they no longer show any nervousness.)
The prices range from $22-$52.00 – guaranteed affordable for any climate!
All in all, if you’re looking for a fun and fashionable way to keep your dog warm and cozy this winter, you should definitely try one out. Pair them up with their Fleece Booties for a worry-free romp in the snow!
