New Local Product 2015: Dachshund Sweaters

New Local Product 2015: Dachshund Sweaters

By on Nov 20, 2015 in Blog, Products | 0 comments

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.
