Daisy Tries Shed Defender, The Dog Onesie That Controls Shedding

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

For a short-haired dog, Daisy sure does shed a LOT. This means fur on the sofa, in our bed where she sleeps every night, in the car…you name it, we find hair there. So I was super excited to test out the Shed Defender. It’s basically a dog bodysuit that contains pet hair. It also has some other useful features I think dog moms and dads will appreciate.

What is Shed Defender

The Shed Defender is a full-body dog onesie made from a lightweight, breathable fabric, with four-way stretch to allow your dog to move freely. It’s machine washable and dryable. The main purpose is to contain pet hair and prevent your dog from leaving fur everywhere. It can also help reduce anxiety, since its snug fit can create a calming effect (similar to a Thunder Shirt). If you and your dog like to spend time outdoors, you’ll be glad to know that the Shed Defender provides UV protection and helps keep your dog clean. It can be used instead of the dreaded Cone of Shame for certain medical conditions. It even comes with its own little pouch for travel and storage.

Putting It On and Taking It Off

The first time we tried putting the bodysuit on Daisy, it was a bit of a challenge. She doesn’t like new things and was really skeptical about the whole situation. To end up with a positive experience. never force your dog to do something they really don’t want to do. To get her used to it, I just put it on half way at first and then gave her some treats while we hung out.

Once we got the whole thing on and zipped up, it took her about 30 minutes to really be ok with it, and then I think she forgot she had it on. If you are planning to use one when you travel, in the car, or for anxiety reduction, I suggest a few trial-runs at home to get your dog familiar with what to expect.

Size and Fit

As you can see, it fits Daisy pretty well. Although there are MANY sizes available, I was concerned when choosing her size online because usually NOTHING fits her right. T-shirts, Halloween costumes, harnesses, we always seem to have trouble because she’s very slim but has a broad chest. Thanks to the accurate size chart and stretchy fabric, we didn’t have a problem. She’s 48lbs and is wearing the Large.

The model we got is the Original, with a full zipper, but Shed Defender also makes a Sport edition where the zipper stops at the belly, allowing easier access for potty.

My neighbor who is a pet sitter recently told me about a super handy litter mat some of her clients have in their homes. I went to check out the details on Amazon and noticed it’s on sale for $15 OFF so I thought I’d share the “scoop.”

It’s the WePet Cat Litter Trapping Mat, and it comes in 6 colors and 2 sizes. Its honeycomb, double layer design catches and traps the litter that your cat scatters or tracks outside their kitty litter box.

Because of the double layer, you can pour the trapped litter back into the box so that it can be reused. Smart, right?!?

It’s also water & urine resistant, soft on paws, easy to clean, slip resistant, as well as BPA Free, Phthalate Free, and made from Premium EVA material. According to the manufacturer, EVA is non-toxic material, ECO friendly and super easy to clean. The bottom layer is designed to help prevent urine accidents from being transferred onto your floor.

This cat litter mat has over 200 customer reviews, with a 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating. Go HERE to read the reviews and see customer photos.
