Sun Protection Suit Up to 12"
This listing is only for dog with a back length of 12" or under. If you dog is over please see the next size up listing.
This is my original FurBuddy pattern with ribbing at the tummy and cuffs on the legs. You may also request a hemmed leg opening. I do make another style "WoofytWear" that has no ribbing at the tummy so if you prefer that style just let me know in the comment section on check out along with measurements. Many like the Woofywear style as it's a little easier to get on and off. You may request cuffs of hemmed leg openings with this style as well. The last picture shows the tummy side of the WoofyWear Style so you can see the difference.
This is a nylon swimsuit material that will help protect your pup from the harmful rays of the summer sun. It has a soft hand and great wicking properties. Plenty of 4-way stretch. Blocks more than 98% of the sun's UVA/B rays. Perfect for Tee shirts, shirts, and joggers. It is quick drying and breathable.
I have been sewing for the hairless breeds for 10 years now and have two of my own sharing my family, Tanner and Rosie. My own concern for their skin, as well as mine, led me on the path to locate material that would work well for their special needs. There are so many thin haired and hairless dogs living in the summer sun all year round that this will offer another option for keeping them safe from the sun and not having to keep them slathered in pore clogging lotion or indoors. This style just slips over the head, there are no snaps, velcro, zippers or buttons. It is open on the underside to allow potty breaks without needing to remove the suit.
You MUST include all the measurements in the comment box on checkout. I cannot complete your order without them.
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
If this is your first time measuring you dog please read information below. You will find a detailed explanation of all that is needed, if you don't need help you can skip this section.
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.
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.
Again, thank you for taking the time to read this.

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!!!
