All Things Dog Blog has the scoop; the Snuggies we all snicker at on TV are now available for your canine snugglers. Yup, and I've got the full facts. More features below:
Doggie Snuggies are made to completely wrap around your pup with a soft, warm, felt-like fleece fabric. It is washable and attaches to the dog with Velcro strips along the back. This makes for easy step in dressing, which is easier for dressing larger dogs.
The most unique feature is the tail attachment which keeps the rear end from flipping up, so Fido's lower back stays warm. It loops around the base of his tail to assure a secure position.
Although my pictures of Jacque's Snuggie don't show it well, it does feature a fold-over turtle neck style, allowing you to unfold it to cover more of the back of his head when needed.
Finally, unlike some dog fashions, the Snuggie also has a sleeve, which extends down to Jacque's elbow, helping to keep cool air from sneaking into his chest area.
Purchased by my mother for her Papillon, Jacque, this Snuggie has been a successful addition to his growing wardrobe. As a cold-natured person, Joan is often concerned that Jacque may be chilly also. She has found the Snuggie performs well as a pajama, as the back end of it stays down throughout the night. Joan gives Jacque's Snuggie a 'Thumbs Up'.
Thanks for the opinion, Jacque. We're glad you love your Snuggie.
