THE STANDARD FIT

The standard fit has the tail-up dog in mind. As a standard, the back length is made so that it touches the base of the tail. The chest and neck are made to fit snuggly, yet with enough ease to allow your pooch to run comfortably when dressed in Happy Pooch apparel.

ADD-ONS

Harness & collar opening

For a fee that covers the extra materials and time needed, holes can be added so that your dog can wear their harness or collar underneath their clothing during walks.

Collar openings are placed as follows of nothing else is mentioned with your order:

TURTLENECKS

Halfway down from the top of the turtleneck.

BACK OF A SWEATER(HARNESSES)

According to the measurement provided with the order. x cm from the base of the neck.

Snap for hoodies

For a fee that covers the extra materials and time needed, a little cork leather patch can be added to the back of your dog’s hoodie, as well as another snap to the back. This way the hoodie can be secured in placed so that the hoodie won’t accidentally cover your dog’s head while strutting around.

RECOMMENDATIONS

If your dog is an escape artist, consider choosing shorter sleeves. Or request having a sweater made as a sleeveless version instead. Escape artists or dogs with very short legs tend to get their legs stuck inside clothing. May also be a good idea if your dog will be dressed in the sweater/onesie when sleeping, as they tend to curl up, ending up with a leg inside a sleeve.

DISCLAIMER

All items are drawn and sewn based on your provided measurements. Please double-check all measurements multiple times as Happy Pooch is not responsible for inaccurate measurements. If you are unsure about fitting, please reach out for further assistance.

TANKS

The measurements of the items may not match your expectations. Tanks backs are sewn longer than raglan sweaters as they fit further up the neck. 

TAIL-UP

The back touches the base of the dog’s tail but does not cover it.

TAIL-DOWN

Fitted over the base of the tail. Preffered fit for dogs who generally walk with their tails down.

Teemo can be seen shaking a little in the video, this is because our studio is quite cold(basement). I’d never do anything with Teemo if it were to make him uncomfortable!
