We have a hard time finding off the rack clothes that fit our Chihuahua mix. He really needs something to stay warm during the winter and this fits him great.

About

Don't let your dog or cat go naked!

Who would have thought I would find my life's passion from my dog and cats! This blessing came after finishing my MBA and being laid off from a high stress job in systems development. Middle-aged, unemployed and a mom of 2 teenagers....now what? RockinDogs started by accident really. I was never one to dress my little dog before but bought something at the local pet superstore out of necessity. After getting it home I couldn't believe how cheaply made it was and I had paid $30 for it and it didn't even fit well.

I decided to make something myself thinking I could make something better than what I had bought at the store. I bought a little fabric and dug out my old sewing machine and whipped up a dress for my dog. I took her to my daughter's softball game and Roxy got so much attention and compliments. When I told people I made it, someone suggested I sell them. That was all it took to put the idea in my head and I was back at the fabric store buying a few more colors and patterns, mixing and matching and having so much fun picking out all the materials...I was already addicted!

Etsy was the perfect home for me to see if my designs would sell because it didn't cost much to try. I came up with 8 different harness and dress designs and put them on Etsy for sale. I sold 4 in the first weekend! That was 1/2 of my stock. As I sold them I quickly learned that no dog is the same size and none of them fit in the size that some store pattern said would fit. I taught myself how to adjust my patterns to fit different pets and soon I was designing my own patterns and coming up with new designs.

Now I've had the pleasure to dress dogs and cats all over the world. The most rewarding part is talking with the pet owners, getting to know them as friends and making a bond and hopefully lifelong customer. I love it when my customers send me their pet's photos and share their stories of how something that I made has made a difference, made them happy or just made someone smile. That is the reward.
