Malden Mills Powerstretch Fleece
Just as you will need a first layer under your clothing on chilly winter days...so does your pet. You can slip this on under any outfit currently in the "dog" closet. A little extra help under the raincoat is much appreciated for our thin skinned four legged companions.
Tanner is my American Hairless Terrier and wears his under any of his fleece outfits on those cold winter days. The legs are hemmed. This is what I like to call my "Leasure" fit...and is very comfy with no ribbing and hemmed tummy opening. This is from the line of Performance fleeces. There are many type that Malden Mills calls a performance fleece as it's good for many applications. This is one of their lighter weight ones. Humans will most often wear it as a layer as it will trap heat and is breathable. This is a very light weight material and is designed to be worn under a suit and trap the body heat. I like this material for the first layer because of the nylon surface...it will allow you to slip on the outer suit easily. It won't grab and stick like fleece to fleece. Because of the nylon surface it was very easy to slip on the topcoat. Inside is a cozy layer of micro fleece which I have shown in the close up.
One piece design just slips over the head and the legs gently guided in. No need to remove for potty breaks..there is plenty of room on the underside. All seems are serged with 4 threads which provides maximum stretch and movement with no blow outs. Great body suit for Italian Greyhounds..biggie iggy to small iggy, Hairless breeds, Xolos, American Hairless Terriers, Chinese Crested, and any dog needing a little extra help in the warmth dept.
This suit is only offered in sizes up to 18" back length at this time. If your just barely over please convo me and I will let you know price and if I can do it. PLEASE don't forget...
Please include dogs:
1. Length from base of neck to start of tail
2. Chest at deepest point all the way around.
3. Neck in the center all they way around.
4. Height at shoulder
Below is instructions for measuring. Please note the price is dependent on the dogs back length so if your dog is 15" then you would buy the "Up to 16" size bracket. First of all thank you, for taking the time to read this, it will help you get a better fitting garment for your dog. It will also help me during my busy season as I can spend over 2 hours of each day answering questions and trying to get good measurements. There are just a few parts to getting a good measurement. 1. A soft measuring tape. 2. Patience 3. A relaxed standing dog. 4. More patience. You wouldn't believe how many times I have gotten emails wanting to know if they can use their metal construction tape and measure their dog while the dog is laying down sleeping. Ok..back to measuring. I need 1. length 2. chest 3. neck 4. height 5. weight, 6. sex 7. breed. All measurements should be snug but not tight, don't allow extra, I will on my end. 1. Length: This often difficult to explain. It is from the base of the neck to the start of the tail. The base of the neck is usually, depending on size and breed, a couple finger widths in front of the shoulder blades. Another way to "see" the base of neck is to watch your dog when out free in the yard and something catches his attention. Right where the neck takes the natural bend up is the base. 2. Chest: This is an easy one. At the deepest part, just behind the front legs, completely around. 3. Neck: Again, an easy one. Right in the middle, not at the base and not at the ears but smack dab in the middle, all the way around. 4. Height: This one can be a challenge and important but not critical. You take from the top of the shoulder blade to the ground. If you have a light weight straight object you can lay over the shoulder blades across the back you can see the starting point. 5. Weight: Weight helps me put all the puzzle together and know if you are close in the above measurements. Please don't guess, if you haven't gotten a recent weight at the vets office you can use you home scale provided you can pick you dog up. Again this is not critical so if you can't get it and are accurate with the rest I can make your suit. 6/7. Sex and Breed: Sex helps with knowing how much coverage I can give to the belly and breed helps me know if your measurements are correct. 8. If you want full neck coverage I need base of neck to the back of the ear. No returns on custom orders but I will alter for free if it's just a matter of leg length.

Great little sweater for my 8 lb Chiweenie! Fits perfect, shipped quickly, great quality! Thanks Randi!!
Seller made this custom order for my fat little mini doxie with very short front legs and barrel chest. It fits her great, I am very pleased and will order from this seller again.
Randi is just AMAZING!!! Everything is so beautiful, and the "junk" that is purchased in the store just could never compare to her work!! You can tell that her whole heart and soul goes into her clothes - I am still so happy and excited! The fit is PERFECT and Teeghan LOVES everything! My fur-daughters are now referring to her as "Auntie Randi"...Thank you so, so much!
The bed is awesome Randi, thanks so much!!! In hindsight I should have ordered an extra large so I'll probably be back to get one of those :-) I have 2 'pocket' beagles, each about 20 - 23 lbs and they do everything together including snooze. Thanks again, it's perfect!!!
