A onesie for dogs that protects your house from shedding, reduces their anxiety and keeps them nice and warm come winter? Introducing the Shed Defender!

By Alice Lang , 1 Jul 2019

Onesies are brilliant. They’re super snuggly, mega warm and, truthfully, the most comfortable thing you could possibly wear.

And, of course, dogs are brilliant too. They’re the ultimate companion, the most loyal friend you’ll ever have and sometimes, the only thing that can get you smiling on your worst days.

So, it only makes sense that a onesie, our favourite piece of clothing, is now available for dogs, our favourite thing (like, ever). Let's be honest, dogs totally deserve to join in on the onesie fun!

The Shed Defender

While dogs are obviously incredible pets, there are a few downsides to owning them - namely, the fur. If your dog is a shedder, you’ll know just how frustrating it is when your carpet, sofa, chairs, clothes, shoes and towels (we could go on) get covered in the stuff.

Well, that’s what the Shed Defender is for. This amazing dog onesie promises to solve the problem altogether, whilst also making your pooch look hilariously cute! Winner.

So how does it work? The onesie contains your dog’s hair within itself, in order to reduce the shedding. It's perfect for in the house, car, or anywhere you don't want to leave a trail of hair.

And that’s not all. According to the Amazon listing, the Shed Defender also:

  • Helps reduce anxiety - the snug fit and gentle pressure gives the dog a calming effect.
  • Helps prevent ticks, protect from cold weather, prevent hair freezing in the snow, keep your dog clean and many more uses.
  • Is veterinarian approved and recommended - made out of eco-friendly fabric that is lightweight, four-way stretch and breathable, ensuring your dog stays cool and comfortable.

A pawsome purchase

The multitasking dog onesies come in a range of sizes and colours, suiting everything from dachshunds to dalmations. It prices up at about £45, which may seem costly - but with such glowing reviews, we reckon it’s a worthwhile investment:

“Does exactly what it says! Contains dander and prevents shedding from my very fluffy Chow Shepherd. She has horrendous allergies, and constantly bites her butt, above her tail. This suit keeps her from irritating her skin MUCH better than anything else I have tried,”

“The Shed Defender is wonderful! Not only does it mostly control his shedding, but it also keeps him from constantly licking and scratching.”

“I bought this for my daughter's golden retriever for their Christmas visit to cut down on the vacuuming. It worked - very little hair was shed on the floor and furniture. The big surprise was that the dog loved it and felt calm and comfortable with it on.
