“To see our product on their shelves is a major milestone, and we are incredibly grateful to Costco for entrusting us with our brand,” says co-founder Steve Mamak.

(PRESS RELEASE) Gold Paw Series has announced it has designed itsStretch Fleece in a full-body style, thanks to popular demand. The Stretch Fleece Onesie is a baseball-tee-inspired onesie that is made to fit like a dream.

Gold Paw Series believes no garment can exceed its material. That’s why the Onesie is made from the company’s signature buttery-soft fleece using recycled content fabrics by bluedesign certified mills. “We work with top-notch high-tech mills to develop gorgeous, functional fabrics that maximize performance and minimize fuss,” comments Rebecca Gadd, CEO of Gold Paw Series. “Our Stretch Fleece Onesie features 7 percent spandex for a 4-way stretch. It’s so comfy that your pup will never want to take it off!”

The new Onesie is lightweight, which makes a single layer of it just right for a cool walk or perfect for winter pajamas. It even has a turtleneck for added warmth. Being suitable for indoor and outdoor wear, the Onesie also works great as a liner under heavy coats, protects skin conditions or wounds, eases mild anxiety and calms puppies, and helps to keep weight on senior dogs.

Available in four two-way color options, including navy and winter mod, hunter and avocado, eggplant and summer mod, and red tartan and black, plus a full leopard option, it’s designed to fit canines of all breeds and sizes. Gold Paw Series even offers customization to the garment — sleeves can be shortened to fit smaller pups or those with shorter legs.

The Stretch Fleece Onesie is available for suggested retail prices ranging from $55-$65.
