Dog Gear: RC Pet Products Packable Pet Poncho GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

Since we don't have a backyard, and we're always out walking our pups in all kinds of weather, we like to live by the motto "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes"
We have found walking through the snow, ice and rain, really isn't so bad as long as we are all geared up.
While we wrote about it the other week, we have recently discovered RC Pet Products Packable Pet Poncho is what we needed to keep the pups dry during these spring/summer storms. We like that it's a lightweight option so the dogs won't get too hot. And after making a couple of mistakes and being caught out in the rain ourselves, we love that these little coats are small and thin enough to easily carry in our pocket. They even come with their own tiny stuff sack! 
Added bonus, they are perfect at helping human morale during these dark and gloomy days. Because really, there's not much funnier than a dog in a hooded raincoat. And these ponchos come in a lot of different colors and patterns. 
RC Pet Products has generously offered to give away a Packable Pet Poncho to 2 lucky readers!
There are two ways to enter, and each person can enter 2 times. 
We love taking our pups out on walks and exploring the city, regardless of the weather.
What would you be able to do with your pup if you won a Packable Pet Poncho?

1) Let us know by commenting on our blog post here.
2) You can also enter by posting a photo on our Facebook page of your pooch and letting us know what they'd be able to do with a new raincoat. (Do you know how much we love seeing your dog photos?)

Details:
-You have two chances to win by commenting once on the blog and posting a photo once on our Facebook page.
-We will use a random number generator to randomly choose one winner from blog comments and one winner from the Facebook page.
-You have until Sunday (June 16) at Midnight (EST) to post your comment or photo
-Winners will be able to choose your size and color and have it shipped to you from RC Pet Products
-Winners must live within the contiguous United States or Canada

Good Luck Everyone!

PS. We only offer giveaways for products we would actually buy and use ourselves and would be valuable for dog owners

It has been super rainy here, too!! Mr B and Miss M must be pushing it our way! The pooches would love to have a lightweight raincoat so we could take longer walks on gloomy days without worrying about getting soaked! This would be especially great for Edi on the warm days since he doesn't need any extra warmth...if you know what I mean...

Rachel said...

What an awesome giveaway! A poncho would be perfect for our Amy as she does not like rain at all. She squishes up her little face and gets major forehead wrinkles as we try to force her outside haha. A rain coat would be just the thing...

Harper said...

Addie would love to win a rain poncho! We usually use her winter jacket as a raincoat when it's really bad outside, but that means on warm, summer nights it's really uncomfortable! We've been on the look out for a new dog raincoat, so winning this giveaway would be amazing! Thanks for the opportunity!

cliona said...

Bea will be having acl surgery soon and a lightweight poncho would be great for keeping the summer showers off her

Fitz_Court said...

I don't have a fenced in yard so when Fenway needs to go out, I need to go out. He doesn't mind getting wet, so he takes his sweet time out there. BUT he runs away when I try to towel him off afterwards!

RachaelRei said...

This is so exciting!! We live in Evanston just north of Chicago and our skinny little Whippet rescue just doesn't like walking in the rain. PLUS he would look like an adorable bumble bee in this coat. :-)

Madeleine Smith said...

One of my dogs, Fergus, is a pittie/Boston Terrier mix and he is HIGHLY particular about the weather. He will not do his business in the rain or in the snow. This would be perfect for him!

Jordann said...

Ooo I love give aways! If I had a Pet Poncho, I would be able to convince my dog Molly that yes, she can go out and pee in the rain! She would rather hold it for ten hours then go outside in the rain!

Lisa said...

I'm sure Leroy would enjoy such a coat. I've opened our door before to walk him, and when he saw rain, he stopped completely and looked at me sadly. This could be his saving grace.

Chango Leon said...

We would LOOOOVe to win this!! Chango needs a new raincoat that will actually cover his big head! -Evelyn & Chango

Luv My Rosie said...

Rosie & I live in a large complex. We are out walking all the time but with a little drizzle she will stop midstream (what human can even do that?) and high tail it back inside. Hence, having to take her out again a few minutes later to finish up the job. I would hope that a raincoat would keep her giant head warm and dry and would also keep her oblivious to the rain coming down on her. Plus Im sure it will increase her social status around the complex.

ohmelvin.com said...

A packable pet poncho would mean that perhaps, just perhaps, Jake would actually go outside when it's raining! One can dream!

HP said...

little Jazz HATES the rain but loves her coat. a rain poncho would be perfect for us to go hiking trails at the park since I love the rain :)

Laurie Ammerman said...

Pretty Chyna loves her walks, but hates to walk in the rain. If she wins a poncho, she'll be able to go out in all this crazy weather we've been having here in upstate NY. A poncho would certainly make her a very happy pittie girl!

Taylor G said...

Mugsy would love a rain coat. He hates the rain and protests every time we go out in it. We even share our umbrella with him so he doesn't get as wet but he doesn't exactly get the concept. Good thing he is pretty, haha.

brian and kim said...

I would love to have one! Both our dogs are super wimpy about the rain so we would get great use out of it!

Debra@Peaceabull said...

As much as I've been wanting a hooded raincoat for Ray, I must say that the advantage of a fenced back yard is that he can "do his business" pretty quickly if its rainy. I believe I would make the best use of this as a part of the gear I keep on hand for when I walk the shelter dogs. :-)

Mixed Pittie said...

Wow, I'm surprised at how many of our pups just don't like the rain! Callie is quite the diva when it comes to getting wet. I would love to try the raincoat for her.

Kate said...

I would able to take my two girls outside in the rain to pee. As of now they refuse to pee when rain drops keep falling on their heads!

Two French Bulldogs said...

Those are great raincoats. You wear them well
Benny & Lily

Jenny said...

If Murray had a poncho he would be able to go outside in the rain for a nice, long walk and would put an even bigger smile on the faces of the poor passersby who are stuck in the rain!

MLaFayette said...

Our dog is undergoing surgery soon and she will only be able to take short walks around the neighborhood - it rains a lot here in Portland, OR - so a nice poncho would be wonderful.

Totem Wave said...

If we won a Packable Pet Poncho, my pittie Felix would be able to visit his grandma in Seattle during the rainy winter and go on hikes with her. He hates being rained on and doesn't want to go for walks during downpours. The Packable Pet Poncho would solve that!

Both my pits refuse to go outside when it rains... and since I believe Chicago has officially changed it's slogan from The Windy City to The Always Raining City, the poncho would come in quite handy!

With a packable pet poncho, I wouldn't have to bath Wallace after every walk in the rain - his skin is so sensitive that Chicago rain water makes him itch and can even give him hives!

Kelly Glew said...

My pup would love a new poncho because I squeeze him into one that is too small so his head and butt still get wet, haha!! Although I do have to say he LOVES being wiped down with a towel when he's wet. He anxiously awaits the moment when I throw the towel over his face and then he falls into me covered in a towel!

Michelle Annadelia said...

Our k9 kids don't mind those rainy days too much. They will go out "if they really need to", but rather be indoors, on the couch. . . of course.

What they would use the ponchos for is tackling the sprinklers systems. In our yard and other neighbor yards around our area. Those pesky sprinklers get our pups every time and unless they are covered by an umbrella our little stinkers will "try" to avoid certain sidewalks. ;)

Not to mention, our pups love strutting their stuff in cool k9 gear!

Glenna said...

Sounds like a fun giveaway :)

Isabel said...

The poncho would be lovely to stuff in my purse for unexpected showers. My dog is not a fan of getting wet and there's always rain somewhere in the Northwest.

Hannah said...

If we won a poncho, Widget would be able to spend more time at the barn with her horse-brother when the weather is nasty!

Holly Robertson said...

Aedin HATES the rain. But I love it. This is the perfect compromise.

ha! said...

I was backtracking through your blog recently and read a PSA. I have since sewn tether and clasps so I can back up to a flat collar if something goes wrong with the leash clasp or the harness. Hoping to look graceful walking the two dogs by New Year!

Rob Fleming Revolution said...

This is such a great give away! Those ponchos looks great, and I love that you can carry them with you! Ruby hates the rain with a passion and refuses to go for a walk if it is anything more than drizzling. We'd love to give her a chance to rock that poncho at SociaBulls walks, too! Thanks for turning us on to such an awesome product.

Brent Miller said...

Juice doesn't mind the weather, I just think it would be too funny to make him wear it while he's out doing his job as an ambassador for pit bulls!

Pitlandia Pooch said...

If we had (another) RC packable poncho we'd be able to store one in all of the different places where it might come in handy to have a rain poncho here in Portland for our no-warning rain storms that we often get. It would be great to have one poncho hanging in the closet for at-home rain storms, one in the car for emergencies when we are out and about and get caught in the rain, and one attached to the leash for when we're out on a walk and get rained on! You see, we already own two RC rain ponchos, but hey, a girl can never have too many rain ponchos to keep her furs from getting wet!

Amy B said...

None of our dogs like walking in the rain, well, none of them really like the rain at all.

Oona Would Love To Stay Dry When We Go To The Park For Our Local Summer Concert Series!

Jojo would love a poncho to go hiking on rainy days.
He hates to leave the porch if it's raining out.

Michigan high school soccer games in fall can be rainy. Mylo loves to go and a rain poncho would be great!

sweetemaline said...

Turk and Ru love their RC Pet Products poncho... but the Mobester could use one of his own! We love how they fold up so perfectly for ease of travel!

Living in Florida with the summer afternoon storms, I'd just like to be able to get my two outside potty when I get home. I think it would also help them with the pesty mosquitos at this time of year.

Burly Thomas said...

I would woofin ruv to rock dis coat & get all da ladies! Plus, I'd keep my fur lookin good & not have to get my head & ears wet.
