‘First-Ever’ Dog Leggings Are the Next Big Pet Clothing Trend this Holiday Season
“Let’s face it; anything a human can wear, a dog can wear, too.”
Or so claims an up-and-coming canine clothing company called Walkee Paws, and from the looks of it — from bad weather gear, to pup pajamas, to doggy haute couture and just about everything else — founder Lisa Baronoff is right on the money. Walkee Paws, which touts itself as a new athleisure line for fidos, specializes in fashion-forward dog leggings.
The company just introduced “innovative leggings” that not only make a “serious doggy fashion statement,” but also provide pups with “maximum comfort and paw protection,” all while keeping your home free of dirt and germs. Invented out of practicality — many dogs don’t like having their paws touched and snow booties tend to fall off — Walkee Paws’ leggings are stretchy and less restrictive (traditional boots tend to squeeze a dog’s ankles and restrict blood flow), fitting securely around your pup’s back, which allows them to run and play more easily.
Baronoff tells PEOPLE that her beloved 14-year-old Cocker Spaniel, Toffee, was the inspiration behind the product. “I love my dog and treat him as part of our family. He sleeps in our bed every night! I live in Manhattan and have been concerned about the dirt and germs Toffee tracks into our home after outdoor walks on the dirty pavements … and I’m concerned with him ingesting dangerous street chemicals by licking his paws, [so] to protect him and our home, I embarked on a mission to find a workable solution.”
Baronoff’s product development and marketing background (she worked at Sarah Lee Hosiery in South Africa and Fisher Price toys, as well as Disney and Sesame Street in the past) helped her invent a better option.
“Inspired by the versatility of pantyhose, my team developed a 4-way stretch fabric and patent-pending tightening tool designed for maximum comfort for Toffee. Walkee Paws is the only dog legging brand on the market,” she declares.
