Here at Whirly Dog Supplies, we have been making dog hoodies for about two years now and it's always been a struggle to make the hood on the jacket just the right size to meet our customer's needs. Like people, dogs have different sized heads, also to complicate things, they come in different shapes depending on the breed.
Our dog, Whirly, which is a Maltese has a small round head. Your "standard issue" dog hood on dog jackets notoriously fall down over his face. I have tried to design the hood using my dog as well as others to get them to come to just the eye brow area. But the other week a good friend, who is also a colleague (who makes and sells the most beautiful afghans on etsy, QuailCreekCreations) and a customer suggested that I start putting a draw string in the hoodies. She has a Maltese as well and finds it very hard to get the hoods of jackets not to fall down over the dog's face.
We went out to the fabric store yesterday and did some searching and found some material to use for draw strings, over the coming weeks I will be redesigning the hood portion of our dog hoodies/dog jackets and using them on some test subjects... stay tuned for updated news and info! They are going to be great.
