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.

Dog Boutique | Whirly Dog Supplies

After four years of starting Whirly Dog Supplies, I am constantly coming up with new ideas, learning new ways of doing things for the benefit of our customers, and implementing new ideas and procedures to make our online store a great place shop. In the past two years Whirly Dog Supplies is becoming more of a boutique for dog and pet owners, mainly small to medium sized dogs.

At the end of 2014 we started making new styles of dog clothes and using designer named fabrics, such as Marc Jacobs and Oscar De La Renta. Now we will be taking a look at packaging for shipping.
Previously, I have always wrapped the pet apparel orders in tissue paper which looked nice, tissue paper is great for shipping as it adds a little protection for transit, and keeps the fabrics at the proper humidity so they will be fresh and beautiful when delivered. I have decided to start adding just a little more to make the packaging look more appealing. I will continue to wrap the orders in tissue paper - but now they will be tied up (like a present, sort of) with twine, yarn, ribbon, etc. The final step will be to attach a sticker, tag, or small card saying, "Thank You".

When someone shops with Whirly Dog Supplies, I want them to feel as though they left a fun and fancy little boutique, not a "pet store". I love making dog clothes and I am passionate about the comfort, style, and quality of the dog clothes I make - so now that will be seen in the packaging as well.

I would love to hear from my readers with thoughts and ideas on what, as a pet/dog owner, you would like to have done to better our store.
