Dog Umbrella: Spoiled Sweet or Spoiled Rotten?

It's super rainy here . . . boo. Neither I nor my pup are fans of the falling wet stuff. But, as much as he dislikes it, I also dislike putting the raincoat on my pooch when he decides he has to go potty at six o'clock on a drizzly morning . . . and then again two hours later. After all, North just does a quick dash to the nearest post, pees, and makes another beeline back to my front door. Getting him to walk any further means I am stuck with a grumpily wet dog who tries desperately to rub the wet (and the dog) against any fabric-covered item he can find back inside my apartment.

If this is sounding like a familiar dance to you, then enter the pet umbrella ($17.95). Meant for tiny pooches, it's essentially a very short leash, umbrella and bent handle for you to grip. I'm betting my little guy moves a tad too fast for his product and will cause the umbrella to swerve back and forth allowing him to get both sides of his body and my legs, pretty wet. But, maybe the rain is bringing about my negativity so what do you think?

wilbur's buds would laugh him off the block. not to mention he'd probably try to eat it.

I have two dogs at home. One is a five pound crazy poodle and the other is a rambunctious fun cockapoo. Jasmine, the poodle, can handle going out to use the bathroom in the rain. Dodger, the cockapoo, doesn't seem to understand the concept of rain. Jasmine needs something like this but if they made one small enough for her and I actually got it on her she would be too freaked out to even move. Dodger, who doesn't need this so much, would probably act as though he didn't even have it on. My dogs are so strange.

It is definately spoiled, but not much more so than my dog huddling under the umbrella with me.

i think some dogs would be spooked by the big thing above their heads. plus, it depends on the dog. does it like rain or not?

I think it's a good idea to keep the dog dry, but I don't think it would really work that well. I also think the dog would pay more attention to the thing above her head then doing her business.

My dog would laugh at me if I bought something like that. It's ridiculous. Besides, I have a Newfoundland, and she's crazy about water. She'd be really pissed if I treid to kept her away from rain.

My girl would be too embarrassed to sport something like that. She is a princess but that is too much. A girl must keep her dignity ;)

I think we've all failed to notice she's also carrying a dog in one of those baby bjorn type things. Now THAT is spoiled rotten.

I think my dog might be freaked out by the pounding rain sound on top of the umbrella...

I think this is a good idea but not sure how well it works... and I'd need some way to make it work for two dogs. Right now I just leave a towel at the door and dry them off when we get back inside.

MandyJoBo, my dog looooves to go out in the rain. She would never want anything to keep it off her.

I don't know why anyone with a dog wouldn't want something to keep their dog dry in the rain. But I suppose those people are just rotten in general. Unless your dog wouldn't allow it over them.

I'll bet my dog would love this. Even in a raincoat, I have to carry him out to his spot when it's raining. He'd probably prance around in this. :)

My dog is usually mellow enough to handle something like that, at least on leash, but i think a raincoat is a better idea.

Jeffrey does the same thing as North. He always has to go at 6:00 in the morning. He runs out, doesnt even leave the patio and pees out into the yard then runs straight back into the house and dives into his blankets. Although if it is cold enough he out right refuses to go outside. I bought him a new sweater to keep him warm (purely functional...he is 42lbs of pure muscle without any fat and short hair- he needs clothes) and we let him out to go in the morning. Apparently the underside of the sweater hangs too low and he peed into it :oops:. I didnt know he did this specially since he dove back into his blankets. So the poor thing spent a lot of the morning with a pee soaked sweater
