Love this bow tie ! It's a great size for my Aussie :) he has another one I bought from a boutique pet store but it was too small and got lost in all his gorgeous fluff. This one is the perfect size ! And I can attach it to his existing collar :) so easy :) seller also sent excellent updates and the packaging was both adorable and protected the bows during shipping :) I will certainly shop here again :)

About

Sometimes it's just difficult to find what you want, it is even impossible for Kuri the Corgi....

Hello, my name is Amanda. I am Kuri’s godmother, also the person behind Corgi Kuri & Friends. Kuri’s little shop was created because of my ‘godson’ Kuri- an affectionate boisterous boy Corgi that lives just 3 minutes away from me!

Corgis have a very ‘special’ body shape. They are one of the ‘gas cylinder’ dogs as we call them here, or 'sea lion' dogs! They are neither a high street pet shop standard size 'M' which is always not long enough to cover their backs, nor an 'L' which accommodates their body lengths alright but the rest is too big and baggy. Since it was simply impossible to find something that would fit Kuri right, the only step forward was to have it made or made it myself – I gave the latter a go.....

I have no training at all in dress making so that was going to be a huge challenge! But luckily I have Kuri’s grandmother pass on to me her knowledge and skills of everything I need to know about dress making for humans, then apply them to dogs. So from pattern designing to making toiles, choosing to cutting into fabrics, putting all pieces together to adding finishing touches, all have been incredibly satisfying!

Initially, I focused only on Kuri then also his Corgi friends in the neighbourhood. I must say there is nothing to beat that pleased feeling of seeing all of them have their own clothes that not only look quite lovely but they actaully fit properly! In addition, I have also designed pieces, such as the Corgi apron ( great for wet weather walks!) and cool pack ( very 'cool' during the summer time!) that I think are useful yet without compromising on styles! Soon after I was being approached by parents of other dog breeds who were very interested in my Corgis creations and everything sort of spiraled from there….

I am always researching on new ideas and expanding styles for Corgis and other doggies. So if you have any thoughts in mind or something specific, any comments or suggestions, please feel free to get in touch!

Finally a little note on the sizing on Kuri’s little shop. They are unique sizes and measurements for this shop only as they are categorised based on the doggie clients I have so far (all I have measured up myself; information on sizing can be found in both Shop Owner and Polices pages). Please bear in mind that dogs may still vary in size and measurement even if they are of the same breed or same weight so it is important to measure your dog before deciding on purchasing an item of clothing for them. If you like anything from this shop, ready-made or perhaps think about going bespoke, but are not too sure the exact points to measure from and to, let me know and I will do my best to help you.

Thank you!

**********************
NOTE:
* COLLAR refers to the neck circumference or where a collar would sit.

* CHEST -The circumference taken from just behind dog’s front legs, commonly referred as the widest part around dog’s body or girth.

*UNDERBELLY- The length from the centre of chest (just behind two front legs) to where the under part of clothing finishes. I make this part ‘wide’ enough to keep the dog’s tummy warm and protected but not too wide so the garment will remain dry even when the dog is taking care of business. This is particularly important for male dogs.

* LENGTH - The length from the base of the neck straight down the back centre seam to where clothing finishes .
***********************
It is important to get the right fit for your dog so please you MUST spare a few minutes to measure your dog and compare with the sizing information on the listed item BEFORE you place an order.

I appreciate that some dogs may be in between sizes. If that is the case or if you find something you like in the listing(s) but would like it in an alternative size or different length/ colour, fabric combination ( this might have to depend however because I usually buy fabrics in small quantities) or just something completely different...etc, please feel free to contact me to discuss. I am happy to make a more bespoke clothing for your dog if I can. Thank you :-)
