About This Item

What is the difference between this model and the original?
Answer by ChewyNov 07, 2021
I have included a chart below showing the differences of each bodysuit for reference.

Would this keep hairless dogs safe from sun burns?
Answer by ChewyAug 27, 2021
In addition to trapping the shedding hair inside the suit for fast and easy clean up, the Shed Defender can also help protect sensitive skin from the elements.

Can this be used after a neuter? Does the zipper go over where the incision would be? Scrotal area? Or stop prior? Looking for a great dane 120#
Answer by ChewySep 22, 2021
This body suite does not zip all the way back to the base of the dogs tail. We recommend the original. Sizing is based on your pet's weight. For the complete sizing chart, click the “Size” tab, next to the “Instructions” tab, just under the product photos. Click the "Size" tab, next to the "Highlights" tab, towards the top bar above the product image when viewed on the app.

How should one determine the size for a long haired dog? Should I size up or will their size chart size fit properly?
Answer by ChewyNov 05, 2021
The dogs hair length will not effect the sizing, we suggest using the sizing chart according to weight. The fit should be snug and dog hair is fairly compressible within the Shed Defender.

Great item

We bought this for our shaggy border collie, mainly because we needed something to cover her legs and under belly during winter. She gets terrible snow and dirty ice balls trapped in her fur which take forever to clean without pulling her fur. It’s a miserable process for everyone. She’s small for a bc - 30ish lbs and the medium fits perfectly. Super stretchy material, pops right on and zips up. Added bonus, it also seems to calm her. She’s very sensitive and unexpected noises severely bother her. Tail tucks and she freezes and shuts down. No issues since we’ve used it during walks. If anything, she’s spunkier than ever

Unfortunately it shrinks, even when hand washed in cold water.

We were very excited for this product. I followed the sizing instructions and placed an order. The product arrived and was SO TINY. Luckily, Chewy allowed me to exchange it for a larger size. A size that would be typically much bigger for Loki. But, it seemed to fit him well. Tight, but that was to be expected. After spending the day hiking in the snow, I hand washed it in cold water. When I went to put it back on Loki days later, it was tighter than before. I hoped it would stretch out, but it did not. I'm very bummed how this product shrunk and Loki was able to only get one use out of it.

Wow ! I suddenly have a really calm dog !

Its not easy to get your dog into this thing, but darn, it works like a dream. Coco is now super calm and bugs me a lot less for attention. She reacts as usual if prompted to interact, but otherwise - like a new dog !

My Bailey Boo

It was very attractive, easy to put on. I have a 121lb German Shepherd and the extra large fit just right. Plenty of room for movement,

Horrible experience

As a Malinois/shepherd, I shed like crazy all the time..My owner thought this would help control the hair in our car rides. I weigh 85 pounds so we went with the XXL and the “sport” style. It is very snug around the chest and back but I look like a gangsta rapper in the hind quarters. It is so loose in that area that it slips down my thigh and knee and binds my legs so much that I can’t straighten the legs. I have worn in 3 times for 30 minute rides and have fallen 5 times into the floor board of the back seat and couldn’t get up. I hate this thing so much I don’t even want to get in the car anymore. A size down would have been too tight in the chest and neck. Fortunately my owner loves me more than a clean car and we are so done with the Shed Defender! Quality is good, design is bad, product is way over priced.

Great for Tyson

My dog Tyson needed this to protect him from scratching and nibbling on skin, next week we will take him to dermatologist and his skin needed to be protected prior to testing. This product has worked tremendously well with him, not to mention he looks adorable in it.

I bought this for my hairless dog for added warmth outside. Very expensive, but have to say, high quality, well sewn. Only thing I found, it was bigger than expected, but then, my dog has no hair, so.......?
