We started My Other Best Friend out of need. We own an Italian Grey Hound/ Chihuahua mix and found that the dog apparel available to us through retailers such as Petco, WalMart, PetFood Express and Target were less than satisfactory for our dogs needs. We found that the sizes closest to our dogs body shape were either too tight or too big, the chest was cut either too short or too long to be effective and the materials (those that were acrylic knit) scratched and irritated the belly of our dog due to lack of fur to cushion the movement. Not to mention that the coats that were cut too long in the chest region acted more like a urine catcher when he urinated and had to be washed every time our dog had to relieve himself. It was out of frustration of what was readily available to us that we decided to make our own jackets and noticing the lack of masculine and fashionably elegant or classic style we started My Other Best Friend…

The lining of our jackets are made of fleece. Which is not only soft and warm but durable and easy to clean and quick to dry. The outside layer is 100% cotton or a cotton poly blend. This allows us the flexibility to choose sophisticated and timeless fabrics as well as current fabrics for our clients and their dogs. Our design offers open arms that allow the dog full range in motion so he/she may keep up with their playful and active lifestyle while remaining well protected from the elements. The chest is cut at the widest part of the chest (avoiding the urine catcher effect) making it perfectly suited for both male dogs with wild aim and female dogs because it doesn’t obstruct access to the teats for nursing dogs.
