Fleece Dog Hoodies for Spring and Summer

I had a friend comment to me the other day, "no one buys dog jackets and dog hoodies during summer ... do you sell many of them on your website for Whirly Dog Supplies?"
I indicated to him that I actually do get a few sales for hoodies and coats - Not only due to the customer's location but there are many areas that get cool at night and a lightweight comfortable dog jacket is a great way to keep your pet warm.

We have a Maltese and a Yorkie, neither have undercoats and Whirly, our Maltese, is a senior and his hair is thinning. Even though we may have days here in Oregon, USA that are 80-90 + during the day, we still can get down in the 40's and 50's at night. Almost nightly, our dogs (because they are small breeds) typically need to get up and go potty at least once, so it's nice to put a little dog coat or hoodie on them while they go out for a few minutes. As with most dogs, ours have to sniff everything and sometimes a few minutes turn into several minutes, while they get chilled!

I make the dog hoodies and jackets with Velcro neck and chest closures so they are extremely easy and quick to put on and off. Furthermore, many of the dog clothes I create are brightly colored so they may aid in visibility when walking dogs near traffic at night.
