Down-paw: Company invent first dog lead with built in umbrella
The world’s first dog lead with a built-in umbrella will protect your pooch from any down-PAWS.
It’s always raining cats and dogs in the British winter, but the innovative idea works just like a human brolly, keeping your beloved pet dry in any shower.
Created by Puppia – a world leader in dog fashion – the dog umbrella features a leash attachment meaning you don’t need a separate lead.
The leash fastens on to a dogs harness and the umbrella is complete with a clear plastic cover to help your pooch manoeuvre any puddles.
Melody Lewis, director at PetLondon who distribute Puppia products, said “Small dogs especially don’t like to get wet and owners can find it difficult to get them out and about when it’s raining.
“The umbrella helps them enjoy their walk no matter what the weather.
“Obviously nobody really likes the wet dog smell in their house either so it can help reduce that too.”
Puppia products are currently sold at Selfridges in London, and are available through distributor PetLondon.
