Up Country Pet Futon and Rain Slicker Review

Powered by Mom brings you anย Up Country Pet Futon and Rain Slicker Review

As a pet owner I know that taking care of and spoiling our pets is almost as instinctive as taking care of our own children. It’s not uncommon to pick up a few odds and ends when you’re out doing a little shopping; fragrant shampoo, a new brush for their coat or a new chewy bone are just a few of the things we like to bring home for our furry pals as a special treat and thank you for their love and companionship.

I was given the opportunity recently to work with Up Country to review their products for our Holiday Gift Guide and were sent their Ikat Pet Futon in a size medium and a Nantucket Slicker with Anchor Design.

ย Up Country is based out of Rhode Island and are crafted by hand and pressed and finished with care. They also take pride in their satisfaction guarantee and that they hand pack each and ever order that leaves their doors!

The Ikat Pet Futon in Medium was perfect for our Blue Heeler Luna and rather than being heavy and bulky like most pet beds, it was lightweight and easy to move whenever the need arose. On the go? The Ikat Pet Futon is so lighweight that you can roll it up to take with you wherever your travels take you. Measuring 29 x 37″this great pet bed comes with removable gorgeous cotton fabric cover with zipper closure so it’s super easy to remove and wash whenever your pooch starts to get it a little smudgy. In fact we put this pet futon in my hubby’s truck for when he and Luna have a long work day. She goes to work with him from job site to job site so our working dog might as well be comfy when she’s on the road

It turns out that Olly the cat also likes the pet futon as he snuck on it for a snooze when we had it on my office floor. Sorry Olly Luna has it now for her work days on the road ๐Ÿ™‚

The Nantucket Slicker Anchorย we picked out for our Chihuahua Little Zeus (LZ). Taking our little one outside in soggy weather has never been easier. It’s velcro closure makes dressing a snap and the collar patch under the hood makes attaching the leash quick and easy.

Here he is getting prepped for his walk out in the rain.

The Classic ticking stripe lining and decorative embroidery will set your pet apart from the rest with it’s adorable look and style. The outer fabric is made from 100% polyurethane and the lining from 70% cotton/30% polyester so it’s machine washable. Just lie flat after washing to allow it to dry and you’re all set to store it away for another rainy day.

LZ was wondering why I was taking so long as he was ready to go for his walk!ย Finally he got out in the rain for his walk, he decided that even though the slicker was keeping him dry he really didn’t feel like a long walk that day.

Both the rain slicker and the pet futon are well made and if Luna and LZ could speak human they would tell you that they’re very happy with their pet products!

    I love the rain coat for your dog. He looked so cute in it and I know my dog would love a rain coat like that. She is a ham anyways. I will have to buy the dog bed for my dogs so they can be comfortable when we travel or do other things. Thanks for the give away

  2. Frank Zumpf says:

    Great idea, my dogs could use a rain slicker, would save us time drying them off when they come in

  3. laurie murley says:

    i love that their products are made in the usa that’s important to me

  4. It isn’t just that it’s cute (though it is!) I think it’s important to keep my dog from getting his entire body soaked when he goes out in the rain

  5. Great pics! And what a sneaky cat!

  6. Angela Leathers says:

    I appreciate that their items are hand sewn and made in the US.


  8. Gail Williams says:

    My furbaby would love a new rain slicker or any coat. This is adorable. The futon looks very comfortable, too.

  9. Patrycja Chudziak says:

    My dog would love the pet futon, it looks super comfy! But that slicker is too freaking ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!! Especially on your little furbaby. I love the anchor design! And anything that helps eliminate wet dog smell..is a necessity lol.

  10. Dawn Cripps says:

    Love this blog post thanks for posting this

  11. I’d love to have a futon for my daughters dogs. Your LZ looks just like Rico who is one of her dogs.He is such a cuddler. That rain slicker is cute! My daughters dogs and cat are her fur babies.They are pretty used to the real baby now. Rico wasn’t too sure about her and now he lays next to her. They’re definitely spoiled rotten.

  12. Linda Buzard-Moffitt says:

    I Like the slicker but My Briella would most likely eat it and not wear it but the pet bed sounds good and hopefully she wont eat this either

  13. NathaniaH says:

    So cute!! Love love this little coat, I need a little pup to dress up.

  14. vickie Couturier says:

    I learned that they come in all shapes and sizes for dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes,,love the slicker,my dog needs one of those

  15. Debbie Bray says:

    I learned that their products are hand crafted

  16. Kim Miller says:

    I have a German Shepherd and he would love the pet futon. He is always curling up in a corner of a couch or climbing up in one of our recliner chairs. He doesn’t like he’s comfortable but he has the whole couch to lay on but he always chooses to lay in the corner. The rain slicker looks adorable on LZ definitely not something my boy Diesel would ever wear.

  17. LZ looks so adorable in his shiny new slicker! Love the futon, too! We sure could use these awesome Up Country products in our house!

  18. alicia szemon says:

    so cute!!! I will have to get one for my dog. We just got ours a winter coat but when spring comes, he will definitely need one of these!

  19. Thank you for the great review. I have a dog that suffers from arthritis and am always looking for a comfortable bed that will provide what he needs to help with his joint pain.

  20. It rains a lot here and I’d love that slicker for my dogs ๐Ÿ™‚ And LZ looks adorable in it too! I also like the velcro closure which makes it easy to put on and off.

  21. Cathy Jarolin says:

    I love pampering my Fur Babies just my own children.. The Fulton bed I awesome I would like to get one for my Boys. Your Boys looked really comfortable on it~ Lol~ The Rain slick is awesome too. No reason for your fur Babies to get any wetter then they do. I have sweaters and coats for mine. I have to look into a rain slick for them. Thankyou for the very informative review~

  22. Michelle oakley Warner says:

    omg how cute, i have two dogs that love getting dressed up, this would look adorable on mine as well. my male will jump right into the shirt and hold his arms out for you its so cute.

  23. DEBRA GIFFORD says:

    I love the rain slicker. I can see all of teir products are made quite well! The futon would be great for traveling! Thank you for sharing!

  24. Little Zeus looks very cute in that rain slicker and that pet futon looks very comfy, these items are definitely worth purchasing. Thank you for sharing this review.

  25. Kasie Tillman says:

    I love the pet futon! Looks like a good thick fabric and very pretty. I can’t get over how cute that little dog is in the jacket! Lol I love it.

  26. The Pet Futons looks so comfy. Our dog is getting older and this would be perfect for her!

  27. VladBarklyDee says:

    That slicker is AHdorable on LZ! I was wondering what one of those slickers looked like ON someone. Now I know thanks to your review!

  28. Natalie Brown says:

    These products sound and look to be well made. I have a dog and a cat who would enjoy the futons but not the rain slicker. lol Thank-you for the information & review!

  29. I just love the outfits, but our Golden won’t even let us put boots on her and we live in wintery Alberta..nor will the spoilsport keep celebratory headgear on every familyNews Year Eve

  30. Stephanie Mago-Eagle says:

    I really liked that futon looks like it is great for either a dog or cat and looks really comfy for pets.

  31. Everything would be real nice for my Diamond the Chihuahua , But poor Sheba would be left out in the cold she is just to big for everything being a Husky Shepard Mix….Love the little raincoat looks so well made….

  32. Amber Ludwig says:

    Omgosh is he so cute!! I used to have a chihuahua and he would have loved this slicker and the fluffy bed!! They are such wusses lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ but so cute!

  33. Kim Mangrum says:

    My Pug Olivia hates the rain so this would be a great item and the velcro would allow for easy access. The bed looks pretty. I have an issue with my pugs and beds anything that has stuffing it in they want to eat so I need a bed they love laying in it but I need a bed with fabric they cannot easily chew a whole in.

  34. Lynn Solomon says:

    The futon would be great for our dogs or the cat, but I seriously doubt I could get my little dog into the slicker….she hates having things put on her! Shame though, it’s really cute!

  35. barnolds barnes says:

    I’d really like a futon for my dog. Right now he just sleeps on a blanket and I think he would enjoy something softer.

  36. Dorothy Teel says:

    Little Zeus looks so cute and stylish in his rain slicker, I also love the pet futon and I think it was very nice of Luna to share it with Olly the cat thankyou for this review

  37. Gloria Walshver says:

    Loved thรฉ coat for thรฉ dog,my Rocky needs one.

  38. terry myers says:

    When you take your dog from job to job you need the slicker

  39. They make adorable dog accessories. I love that they’re hand crafted. It means they’ll last a lifetime.

  40. Gena Durbin Carrico says:

    We are getting a new puppy and a futon and slicker would be awesome to have for her. I also love how you can take the cover of the futon and wash it.

  41. Tina Bornheimer says:

    I just love that little rain slicker!! The anchor on it is so cute and your little LZ looked adorable!!! The futon looks super comfy … and your dog and cat sure made true! Thank you for the wonderful review. I’m glad to know the products are hand picked and satisfaction guaranteed. That’s one remarkable company that I will do business with for sure!

  42. Eileen Jones says:

    Thanks for the pics included in review

  43. Linda Szymoniak says:

    I have five rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds. A couple of my pups really don’t like getting wet. I’d love to try this slicker out on them. Oh, and I’m always looking comfortable, easy-care beds for my pack. This futon sounds wonderful.

  44. Sandy Cain says:

    These are TOO cute! I had made ( long ago!) something similar, a teeny one for my Chihuahua, and a big one for my Yellow Lab. At night they were where they were supposed to be, but when I got up in the morning they had always switched places! The Lab was all scrunched up in the little one, with her poor head hanging over the side, and the Chihuahua was laid out luxuriously in this HUGE one, like a very small pea in a very large pod. Go figure!

  45. donna porter says:

    This is what I learned and liked…. Up Country products are crafted by hand and pressed and finished with care. They also take pride in their satisfaction guarantee and that they hand pack each and ever order that leaves their doors.

  46. My dog would love to lounge on that futon.

  47. Brandi McAtee (@BrandiMcAtee) says:

    Since I had never heard of Up Country, I learned a lot from this post and giveaway! I love that the futon covers are easily removed for washing, much better than regular dog beds! Like Christie said, I would need a much bigger rain slicker than Little Zeus, Jager is about 80 lbs! I checked out the website, the collars are awesome too! Thanks for the detailed review ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. I love the rain slicker and that they are crafted by hand!

  49. Your blue healer looks super comfy on the fouton. I think my red healer would love it as well. He loves currently has blankets all around the house on the floor for him to lay on.

  50. Kimberly Flickinger says:

    This would be so great for my doxies, they would love it!

  51. CR Williams says:

    This would so cute for my friends dog!

  52. laura rubenstein says:

    My cat would love the futon. He’s spoiled rotten haha.

  53. Gale McCarron says:

    My dog hates when it rains. He doesn’t enjoy getting wet. This slicker would be perfect!!!

  54. Love to have the pet slicker. Our dog has short hair and it rains and snows a lot here so this would keep him dry and not have to dry him off with a towel every time he comes in. Would have to buy a large or Xtra large since he weighs 72 pounds. The futon would be great too and would help not lying on the hard floor.

  55. Marti Tabora says:

    I love the rain slicker, but I don’t think I would ever be able to get my dog to wear it. I know he would totally love the futon though, he would think he was something sleeping on that.

  56. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    This is so cute. The pet bed looks very comfy. Thank you so much for sharing with us dog lovers

  57. Margaret Imecs says:

    So adorable! ๐Ÿ™‚

  58. Ashley B. says:

    That bed looks super comfy! I have gotten several beds over the years that just seem to go flat after time. I also love that the cover can be removed and washed!

  59. wendy browne says:

    Love the washable dog bed cover, that’s so important to keep clean.

  60. my chialwaii doe snot like cold or the rain she would wear that for sure and then king wouldlove to have his own bed if princess wont hog it they a re great pet gift

  61. Debbie Welchert says:

    I know our dogs would love the futon. I know I like that it can be washed in the washer which is a big plus for me. The raincoat is great too but I know my dogs would not wear it. They would rather get wet.

  62. The futon is a good idea. Animals shouldn’t be on the furniture. The rain slicker is ridiculous! I cringe when I see people dress animals.

  63. Amy Heffernan says:

    How cute!!!! I want one for my pup! ๐Ÿ™‚

  64. learned that you can put in washer, thats nice

  65. Karen Beckett says:

    I learned that the products are crafted by hand and pressed and finished with care.

  66. I love how the Futon cover unzips & can be washed in at home in my washing machine & that the pillow itself isn’t bulky like most Futon pillows are. The Slickers are wonderful!!! I have the basic raincoat for my dog made with basic material & I know the slicker has to perform the same performances like keeping mud off of their belly & under legs. I wished these came with the booties as well. They are a much needed piece of the clothing for when it rains because they tend to run all over the house once they hit the door…mud on their feet & all…haha
    I like that the Slicker is made with Polyurethane, easy to clean, hand made, ironed & hand packed EACH & EVERY ORDER, as they say, before they leave your doors! That’s a huge deal to me ๐Ÿ™‚

  67. Nena Sinclair says:

    Aww, what adorable products! My cats would love that pet futon!!

  68. Thanks so very much for the Terrific Review of Up Country Pet Futon and Rain Slicker! I have 2 “fur babies” that are really like my babies! They are my heart and I couldn’t love them more! The both need new collars and dog beds! If 2014 would have been more healthier and wealthier for us, they both would have gotten what they needed for Christmas! However, 2014 was horrible to us and money was just (and unfortunately still is) too darn tight to get anything! This was a horrible, terrible Christmas that I am so glad that it’s over and 2014 is history! 2015 isn’t starting off very well either! Anyway, Thanks for all the pictures of your “fur babies” and their nice futon and slicker! I really do appreciate it! I am entering the contest and I’m praying for a win. Thanks again for the Terrific Review! I honestly appreciate it! Michele ๐Ÿ™‚

  69. The beds sound great! Sorcha would love that.

  70. Love that the bed has an easy zipper to remove and wash the cover! Also, love the cure design of the slicker ๐Ÿ™‚

  71. Cute dog. Love that slicker.
