Finding a coat/sweater that fits the short and long can be a challenging task. We do not have any dachshund dedicated retailers here in town. Even though there are some online stores, I would like to be able to try the coat on the pups before spending $50+ dollars in a non-refundable dog item!
So I decided to put my handcrafting skills to use and started making my own dog coats. After several tries I had managed to make one or two that are functional and not too bad looking. The most important thing, T&B are now ready to play in the snow and last longer in the freezing temperatures we have been experiencing lately.
Early design: Easy to put on/ take off
Full cover up: To protect their chest
This is the newest design with home made quilted fabric. Fleece in the inside, water resistant fabric on the outside to protect from snow/water, light weighted polyester batting in the inside.
