The temperature has dropped, the snow is sticking, and winter is officially upon us! Daily walks are a must in this house, their importance only paralleled by the need to stay warm and dry. (I grew up in Arizona -- being cold and wet is not an option!!) Smash and Wrigley have similarly intense feelings about being dry and cozy. So, when I spotted this water-resistant, fleece-lined jacket from FouFou Dog, I knew I'd found the perfect winter coat for these weather-sensitive pups. Read on to see what we think -- and snag a special discount code!
I'll admit, when the Canada Fouse Coat from FouFoug Dog arrived for us to try out, I was a little jealous. If there was a matching human version, I would totally wear it. I mean, c'mon, look at how stylish this bad boy is!
Removable faux fur trim? Button down detailing? Pockets?? This is one seriously awesome coat. Not to mention the fact that it's water-resistant, so it's perfect for wet climates. The fleece lining is über soft and incredibly warm, too, so your dog will feel all bundled and cozy during your whole outdoor adventure. The Canada Fouse Coat also has a slit to connect a leash to your dog's collar or harness, which can easily be worn underneath.
We tried this coat out on a particularly cold, snowy, and windy day -- one where we were the only people (and dogs) insane enough to be outside. I was quickly reduced to a whimpering, shivering mess while Smash pranced around like he was at a beach resort in July. After a full walk, he was happier than ever and, I'm happy to report, this jacket was as dry as could be. Snow had collected on top, but hadn't soaked through, and after Smash had a chance to shake it everywhere, we removed it to see how warm it was. Let's just say Smash had turned into a Shih Tzu-shaped hot water bottle and the coat itself stayed warm for a while after we took it off. That sucker is seriously insulated!
So what's the verdict? This water-resistant winter coat gets some serious points for functionality and style -- 2 paws way up!
