Want to make spring sniffles and sneezing a thing of the past? Try this simple solution for seasonal shedding in dogs.

When I brought Zed, a Japanese Chin and the newest member of our furry family, into our home, I was under the impression that he was a low-shedding breed. But I was so wrong – his long hair is everywhere… on the furniture, under the couch, in my food. And it doesn’t help that I get the sniffles every spring.

I already reconciled myself to the fact that I’ll be sneezing non-stop when I stumbled upon Shed Defender. This life-saving pet accessory is essentially a bodysuit for dogs which prevents the dog’s loose hair from ending up all over the place- along with those pesky allergens and dander. Since those microscopic skin flakes and stray hairs are what triggers the sneeze fest in the first place, keeping them safely tucked inside the fab unitard really does the trick for my allergies. And, in addition to minimizing the potential for an allergic reaction, this comfy suit makes hair tumbleweeds a thing of the past.

Although seasonal shedding is more than enough reason to go and get your pup a brightly-colored unitard (if you need a reason at all), there’s more to Shed Defender than making spring allergies bearable. In case your dog has a hotspot or a skin issue, the covering bodysuit will keep them from chewing or licking the spot; the same reason why Shed Defender can be used as a stress-free alternative to e-collars. The figure-hugging fit of the suit also helps anxious pooches feel calmer and reduce their nervousness on a regular basis: it even helps yappy dogs tone down their constant barking. Considering both the budget-friendly price and the versatility of this onesie, you definitely get good value for your money.

I'm sorry, no disrespect intended, however my honest opinion --I would never keep my Baby confined and forever uncomfortable in a snug polyester unitard for long periods of time just to prevent him from 'shedding'. This what you call a 'snug polyester unitard' would also be hot to wear especially on a hot day:yes::sweatdrop:, which is the nature of polyester. And anything 'snug' is generally not comfortable {unless maybe it's a fleece 'Thundershirt' worn during a thunderstorm}. My dogs comfort comes before my own because it is up to me to take care of him and make him comfortable since I'm the one who brought him into my life. And if I knew I had allergies I wouldn't have a dog at all so I wouldn't have to worry about making that dog uncomfortable {I'm so thankful I don't have pet allergies at all though because I could never live without a dog!!}. 2nd of all allergies which are caused by 'pet dander' which is very tiny, and is microscopic 'shed skin cells' which would not be contained, or be prevented from entering an environment merely by wearing a unitard. 3rd of all this is a Maltese website, and Maltese as a breed don't 'shed' much at all. Maltese hair also has a tendency to 'mat' badly & this type of unitard would only cause matting to happen. My boy rarely sheds I only find my boys hair in the brush after I brush him and rarely elsewhere. This is not something I would ever want to buy:yucky::no2:, and would feel sorry for any dog forced to wear one, it reminds me of a straight jacket, no thanks:blink:.
