Dog Leggings Are Here to Protect Your Pup's Paws and Keep Your House Mud-Free

Some dogs can’t stand to wear clothing, while others seem to actually enjoy it—or at least tolerate it for the sake of their human’s amusement. If your pup likes to be primped but already has a closet full of doggy sweaters and dresses, you can now get them a pair of waterproof leggings, as People points out.

They’re made by a company called Walkee Paws, and they come in four stylish patterns: Glen plaid, polka dot, camouflage, and a solid brown color. Aside from making your pooch the envy of the dog park, they also serve a practical function. The rubber-soled booties provide “maximum comfort and paw protection” to keep their feet in pristine shape. They also prevent dirt, snow, and other unmentionables from being tracked throughout your home, so it will save you the time and hassle of having to clean up each time you take your dog outside.

Walkee Paws founder Lisa Baronoff said walks with her Cocker Spaniel Toffee inspired her to create this product. “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 told People.

Made from a stretchy material and patent-pending adjustable connector that hooks around a dog’s back, the leggings are designed to be less inhibitory than traditional dog boots, which can restrict blood flow or fall off easily.

Three sizes are available, depending on your dog’s height. The largest size can accommodate most Boxers, Golden Retrievers, and Standard Poodles, as long as they’re no taller than 26 inches. Prices vary from $20 to $30 depending on the size, and you can order yours from Walkee Paws’ website or Amazon.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.

And apparently it's no longer just for humans, because Fancy Feast is letting your feline roommate in on the fun with this unique cat food Advent calendar, now available at Chewy for $23.

For the 24 days leading up to Christmas, your cat will get to enjoy a variety of different wet foods, including favorites like grilled salmon, chicken, and more. There is even a unique ornament included with each calendar featuring a cat in the shape of a heart that can go right onto your tree. (Also, don't be surprised to find your actual cat making its way into the middle of your tree; they're known climbers.)
