FAQ & Policy
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Zippy protect my dog?
Dogs have much more sensitive skin than humans, so it is important to keep irritants away. Whether it is an adventure in the woods or a walk around the block, our dog apparel protects from rain, snow, dirt, bugs and more. Learn more here.
How is it convenient for us?
It's good for your pup and for your home to keep your dog clean, but that can be difficult. Zippy Dynamics makes it easier. Dogs come home cleaner, dryer and happier from any weather. That means a cleaner home and less frequent bathing. The image below shows a problem in the rain and melting snow and on a wet roads with dogs under bellies ang legs getting so dirty. The Full Body Suit keeps your pup clean.
How warm is Zippy apparel?
Our lines of apparel from warmest to lightest: full-body suits, coats, parkas, vests, and a raincoat. Each product page has a detailed description of dog apparel warmth to help you choose the best product for your climate. For really frigid environments, consider layering a vest under a full-body suit to keep your dog warm and cozy.
How does my dog go to the bathroom?
As they would if they were wearing nothing at all! There is an ample opening at the bottom of all our dog apparel for either gender to go #1 or #2.
I'm not sure which size will fit best?
Take a look at our Measure & Dress page here. Our full-body suits come in short- and long-leg varieties (i.e. 14S and 14L) to better fit different dog body types. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us and we would be more than happy to help you find the right size.
My dog doesn't fit any size, do you offer custom orders?
We will make your dog custom sized apparel! Just reach out to us with your dog's measurements and we will make one of our products to fit! There is no additional cost to you, just a 10-business day delay to make the item.
Can Zippy apparel be worn with a harness?
Yes, our apparel is designed to be worn underneath your dog's harness. Adjustable cords on our full-body suits are located to not interfere with a harness.
CAN ZIPPY APPAREL BE WORN OVER A HARNESS?
No, our apparel is designed to be worn exclusively under any harness and never over it. Our research into the over/under debate has found that an over-harness design would lead to poor harness performance as well as unnecessary discomfort for your dog. For much the same reasons skydivers always wear their harnesses over their skydiving suits, please know to always put the harness on after your Zippy Dynamics full body suit.
