My husband has always wanted a newfoundland and for years I put it off because I was afraid of the allergies and issues. We did eventually get one – her name is Xena Lee and she is such a wonderful member of our family. My allergies have been a constant struggle though. Between she and our horses I have no idea how I survive.
I can’t even remember a day I haven’t struggled with my allergies. Our Newfoundland sheds a huge amount. My husband brushes her regularly (not something I can do) and this is the result of a typical afternoon – no matter how often he brushes her.
That’s to say nothing of the fact that I am always covered in hair; when I go to bed I find that I end up inhaling a clump of hair on occasion. How annoying…
Shed Defender has the solution and I am thrilled. The patent pending Shed Defender® is intended to be worn in the house, car, or anywhere you don’t want dog hair, dirt, dander, and allergens. Made from premium eco-friendly fabric that is lightweight and breathable to ensure the dog stays safe, cool and comfortable. You can now take your dog anywhere you want without worrying about leaving a trail of hair.
Those huge piles of hair will now end up outside where we need them to be – not all over the house.
Keeps house and car clean
I will no longer have to vacuum twice a day or pick up tufts of hair all over the house.
Keeps allergens and dander to a minimum
A nice night’s sleep without waking up with an asthma attack.
Can help reduce anxiety and stop the constant barking
Storms? No problem. Visitors? No problem.
Keeps dog clean when outside
Newfies love mud – that’s just how it is. She never misses a chance to roll…
Can be used in the snow to prevent the dog’s hair from freezing and acts as a barrier from the cold
We haven’t experienced it in snow yet but can’t wait – Xena loves snow and won’t come in the house until her hair is frozen in chunks!
Protects against flying insects, ticks, and stickers (hunting dogs)
Hunting, camping, along with us on trail rides with our horses – no problem.
Can be used to cover wounds or surgical sites
In the past I have cut up t-shirts and covered wounds or hot spots – no more!
Used for show dogs to keep clean
I have something similar for our horses – it covers their braids and keeps them looking nice and pretty for the show. Excellent idea!
Available in many different colors and even available as a fleece option for the winter! … And today Dad and Xena even matched!
Shed Defender is also available on Amazon.
