Just like people, dogs are unique, and no matter that they're the same breed or even litter mates, each dog has something just a little bit different. So why not customize their clothing, tailor it, so to speak? Yes, you can purchase dog jackets at any department or pet store, but if you want something a little bit special-and that will fit your dog just right-then you need a custom dog coat!
Diva's and Dude's specializes in custom dog coats, for dogs of all shapes and sizes. I imagine this would come in really handy for owners of dogs such as Basset Hounds, Dachshunds, and other uniquely shaped dogs. However, even for one as common as a Lab or a Beagle, customizing their coat to their size and shape is a great benefit! Diva's and Dude's agreed to make a coat for our Schipperke, Shadow. For anyone unfamiliar with Skips, they are short, round black dogs with a thick but short coat, and come from Belgium. Shadow is very active, and loves playing outside, even in the super cold weather-but we like to make sure she comes in every so often, to stay warm. So, when given the opportunity to review a custom dog coat, I knew this was perfect for Shadow!
The process is actually very simple; you only need to take 3 measurements. I emailed Jo Ann with Shadow's measurements: length from base of neck to top of tail, girth, and neck size, and she offered an opinion on the type and color of coat. We decided on a faux-fur zebra print coat, with a black lining. I was amazed when just a few days later I received an email telling me Shadow's coat was ready for shipment! The coat arrived a few days later, and we were excited to try it on Shadow. Honestly, the coat looks amazing; very well made, and even better than store-bought, because it is just the right size for Shadow.
