They're even waterproof!
Winter is coming... time to cozy up indoors in warm blankets and maybe a good book too. But if you want to head out because you and your furry family members feel a little restless after being cooped up at home for too long, here's how you can get out in style. For your pooches, we mean. A company called Walkee Paws is offering a trendy way for dogs to protect their paws from the harsh winter conditions: say hello to these dog leggings.
Get those paws an extra layer of protection against the harsh winters with these pawdorable leggings. Each pair comes up to about $26.99 and you can get them in a variety of styles called: CoCoa, Camo, Confetti and Classic. The website states: Walkee Paws are waterproof leggings for your four-footed friends, protecting them from the elements, germs and chemicals on their everyday walks. At Walkee Paws, we’ve fashioned a new way to make walks even more fun, with fetching designs that are easy to wear and protect your pooch from all the ruff stuff outside.
According to Walkee Paws founder Lisa Baronoff, the dog legging is inspired by the versatility of good old pantyhose. She writes: My incredible team developed a four-way stretch fabric, along with a clever tightening tool that prevents Walkee Paws from falling off, while also remaining comfortable for the dog. Next came the waterproof paws. We knew we wanted the material to be lightweight and thin enough so that dogs could still feel the ground and walk more naturally, but it also had to be durable enough to withstand water, pavement, snow and the general wear-and-tear that comes with outdoor walking.
Tons of dog owners posted reviews on the website on how much they and their pooches love their dog leggings. Some of them do admit that some dogs may take some time to get used to them. The only “shoes” they can’t shake off, wrote Austin E on the reviews section of the website. He continued: Seriously, these are a godsend. We have two 1year old yorkiepoos and these little babies sure know how to shake off any and all booties...except these. They are 10lbs and we ended up needing a small. So worth! Since they are inside with us always we needed something to keep their feet dry and clean in the rainy/snowy weather and these fit perfectly as is or under their onesies and winter coats. No need to get the pups in the sink for a bath, just slide off the leggings and they are ready to snuggle on the couch.
On their YouTube channel, first time user Miggy took some time but finally gets the hang of wearing his new Walkee Paws. Regular booties may feel tight around your dog's ankles so why not get these pawdorable leggings instead?
