BuddyWear SummerCoverup™ For all dogs up to 18"
This suit is perfect for the mild climates of winter in the south and the summer temps in the north. It will also help for the pup in a air conditioned home during the work day when they are home just laying around. It is made with a average weight pre shrunk cotton jersey with lycra. The stretch of the jersey provides a comfortable fit for any thing you dog wants to do, run, jump and play. It will also provide some sun protection from the suns harmful rays.
You can have a color block as shown on Tanner, your choice of colors..or you can have your suit all one color, it's your choice. Just leave me your preference in the comment box along with your dogs measurements when you check out. If you want the color block please let me know which color you want for the main body. Tanners is wine and steel grey. This style of suit is nice for summer as there are no cuffs or ribbing at the tummy which makes it super easy to get on and off. It is unisex cut with plenty of room for both boys and girls to have potty breaks with no need to remove the suit first. It's the Woofy Wear pattern for those of you who remember the sweet lady that originally created it for the American Hairless Terrier.
This listing is for dogs up to 18" in body length. For larger dogs please email for availability and price.
Their are no snaps, Velcro or buckles. It just slips over their head, front legs next, and hind legs last. When it's time to take the jogger off just reverse the process. The chest is made 1 1/2" to 2" larger then measurement to allow the front legs easy entry.
All my seams are serged with a 4 thread. Serged seams are the only way to go with performance fleece with stretch, that is if you want it to last without blowing out a seam. It also finishes the seam with a professional look.
It is most important to get accurate measurements and if you need any help please don't hesitate to email me.
For all orders please leave you dogs complete measurements in the comment box on checkout.
I need from you:
Length - from base of neck to start of tail. This is how the suit is priced.
Chest - taken at deepest part
Neck - taken in the middle, not at the base.
Male or Female
Machine wash and dry cool.
All cottons in my shop have been pre shrunk.
If you need help measuring here are some detailed instructions:
First of all thank you, for taking the time to read this, it will help you get a better fitting garment for your dog or cat. 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.
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.
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.
Chest This is an easy one. At the deepest part, just behind the front legs, completely around.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you are ordering a winter suit and want the head covering snood with toggle there is one more measurement I will need.
1. Dog must be standing in a relaxed position
2. Must use a soft tape
3. Start at the base of the neck, go up through the ears to the start of the eye.
4. Dog should be holding the head in an natural stance, not hanging down.
5. If you need help to hold the dog still it's best to get an extra set of hands.
A couple more things I would like to mention regarding the fit of your dogs suit.
I like to keep the legs shorter then some of my competitors for a few reasons.
1. It keeps the cuffs and bottom of the legs dryer and cleaner, especially if they potty on wet grass or play in dog parks.
2. It keeps the legs in. When dogs lay down they have the ability to draw their legs up so tight and often if the leg is too long or loose will get tangled up when they go to stand.
3. By the master designer dogs don't loose as much heat the further down the leg you go which helps their wild cousins walk all winter in snow and freezing temps. There is no reason to worry if the leg is not totally covered.
Leg length is an option for you as some of my customers living in extreme conditions want full coverage as they tuck the legs in boots.
All that being said if you want your legs to go to a specific spot just take a good measurement from the center of the back by the shoulder blade to where you want the front sleeve to stop.
I have been sewing for dogs for over 10 years now. Nothing is more satisfying then to know one more fur challenged canine family member is not only a little warmer, but most importantly, comfortable, in their clothing during the cold winter months.
I hope this was clear and easy to understand for all you that are measuring your dog for the first time. I welcome you input if you feel it could be better.

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!!!
I still can't believe how beautiful these are, how perfectly they fit, and how comfy they are for my fur-baby! It's amazing to work with and buy from someone who is so thoughtful, kind, nice - and PATIENT with pains in the butt like me!!!
