We recently ran into a someone local who knits cute, little sweaters that are made for longer-bodied dogs including dachshunds. Debbie Lodoen knits these awesome sweaters in a variety of sizes and are made of 100% polyester yarn which makes them a toasty warm sweater that is also easy to clean and less prone to get as dirty or smelly as cotton-based sweaters. They are machine washable and come in a variety of patterns.
We started with a limited supply of sweaters but hope to be able to bring more in stock as we see more sales.
Come in and take a peak at them in our dog clothing section of the store.Read More
