De's Wild Rags {Review + Giveaway}




While a majority of us worry about staying warm in the cold, we sometimes forget about our furry friends!  Well, no worries here!  Allow me to introduce De's Wild Rags



The wonderful owner, De Hufford, has both you and your pet in mind with her customized dog coats - being that they are easy on the pocket book and never ill-fitting because she customizes each coat to fit your buddy



 I recently got the pleasure of reviewing one of De's Wild Rags customized coats and let me tell you, my puppy LOVES his! 



The outside of Tito's coat is water resistant so it keeps him nice and dry from snow and rain (and Tito has to potty A LOT so it helps to keep our home from smelling like a wet puppy!)  - the inside of his coat is fleece keeping him toasty warm





De makes several types of coats including: 
  • fleece and flannel coats
  • water repellent coats with fleece (like Tito's!) or flannel
  • bright orange coats with or without reflective tape for safety
  • single layer fleece jackets or coolers
  • synthetic chamois coats for soaking in water to keep dogs cool in the summertime
  • lycra coats for show dogs to help keep their coats smooth, clean and burr-free
  • coats with boots that attach




De also graciously notes, "I'm always happy to try to meet someone's needs and come up with new ways of doing something." 


And speaking of gracious, De is giving away a customized dog coat to one of our lucky readers!
