Our first collection is going live! Inspired by the royal wedding and our love of rebellious princesses, expect a summer of statement looks for the princess (and rebel) in your dog.

About

Cute enough for your little gothic princess, unique enough for your special needs superhero, and sturdy enough for your little punk. 100% custom.

Puppity Mamas products are made by a disabled wife and wife team of service dog owners and trainers who became frustrated with mass produced dog clothes. (Call us Mama1 and Mama2)

Mama1 spent time making costumes in the theater and discovered that the same skills that allowed her to create quick, accurate patterns for human bodies allowed her to make quick and accurate patterns for dog bodies. Who knew? She brings over 30 years of sewing and design experience to the table.

Mama2 has the patience 1 lacks, and loves to add hand sewn and embroidery touches, two projects 1 avoids with creative and occasionally foolhardy inventiveness. 2 also makes the jewelry, brooches, and fancy embellishments. 2’s creative eye and devotion to details improve everything she touches and ensure 1 doesn't try to invent a budget embroidery machine again.

All purchases made from us support our household and keep our service dogs happy, healthy, and working. We appreciate every one. We support charitable endeavors, too, so watch our shop for special edition items which benefit local pet nonprofits.

And now, a little bit about our shop and process:

We make unique patterns for each dog, custom fabrics as needed, and discriminating fabric choices always to avoid everything that frustrates us about the dog clothes we've bought and shopped for our service dogs.

Because Mama1 makes all unique patterns for each dog and has some small Engineering background, we have found ourselves gladly making dog harnesses with special physical needs in mind. If you have a disabled dog or a beloved pup getting older and in need of a little help, we would be delighted to create something to your dog’s specifications.

Our top 10 of all the things Puppity Mamas clothes will not:
1: fall apart on the first wash
2: cause pressure sores when the correct size is worn as intended
3: look ratty after the first few washes
4: curl up at the hem
5: feature accessories attached with hot glue
6: require hand washing or dry cleaning due to poor construction (only for special fabrics with delicate finish)
7: only fit short/long/narrow/muscular/chubby-bodied dogs
8: overcharge for what you receive or undercharge to below minimum wage
9: claim to be made in USA while major construction happens in a sweatshop
10: expect dogs to be shaped like baby dolls with front legs for arms and invisible shoulders
Bonus 11: slide right down your dog's body and get trapped around their front legs, which is what happened to poor Fruit Bat.

All Puppity Mamas clothing is made with sturdy construction, patterns uniquely tailored to dog anatomy, and comfortable finishes inside and out. We comfort-test each new pattern on three very different dogs with different bodies and preferences before we list them here on Etsy: a Teacup Chinese Crested hairy hairless, a small semi-hairless sleek Rat Terrier mix, and a medium Terrier-Beagle-Heinz 57 mix with thick double coat who will only wear clothes if they're comfortable (and knows how to get them off if they aren't).

Our goal is well-dressed, happy, comfortable dogs and satisfied owners. We're always willing to use any of the many cotton and cotton-blend fabrics available from JoAnn Fabrics or fabric.com to make any of our clothing.

Each Puppity Mamas garment is made with care for long term wear, so try us on for size. If it's not up to our standards for our service dogs, it's not up to our standards for YOUR dog.
