I was excited about this leash because my dog absolutely hates rain and refuses to go outside, but unfortunately he was terrified as soon as it opened. One of the problems is the umbrella has to be open to work as a leash, so it’s a pain to put on while inside. I think if you could wait to open it as an umbrella once you’re outside, it might be less scary for dogs bc they can understand how it keeps them dry.
Brought it for my neighbor, she absolutely loved it, great for small dogs. Super cute,
I had been looking for this. I had one years ago for another dog. Once they are trained they love it too. Thanks Chewy!
I ordered this for our small dogs. They hate rain. This will be so much better than trying to hold a large umbrella over top of them without hurting them. The leash part was very short, so I removed it. We have a fenced in yard, so it wasn't needed.
It was lightly raining so I decided to try out my new dog umbrella and my dog was absolutely terrified of it, the handle is made for a much smaller hand than mine, and when my dog was terrorized she snapped a part of the umbrella with the leash chain.
Our dog wouldn't go out when it rains and I had seen this umbrella-my husband said she wouldn't like it--guess what==she LOVES it!! People think we're crazy-guess what-we live in FL, its rainy season, and she will go outside!!!
When I first received it it was confusing to me but then we tried it out and liam didnt seem to understand what was going on kinda startled him when using it
I personally like this umbrella is a great thing to have for dogs that hate the rain but my Minkie is afraid of it. She's a rescue so maybe she was abused by something that looks like the umbrella leash. I'll try to let her see that it won't hurt her and she can go out in the rain without getting wet. May take some time and I do hope she'll like it.
Please do not buy this product — and if you must, please make sure you use a regular leash with it. The handle is not stable and broke off mid walk for me, while the umbrella stayed attached to my puppy. This spooked him and caused him to run into oncoming traffic. It was terrifying. You’re better off with a raincoat and booties and holding your own umbrella.
This umbrella worked welll in the rain for us. It is so cute.
