Perfect fit my boy loves his coat especially after a bath. Seller was the best to deal with very professional and accurate with sizing. Excellent quality I'll buy again happily!

About

We handcraft stylish, modern, and livable accessories for you and your pets.

I’m Jen, and I helped create this shop along with my aunt, Jan. We share a passion for design, fashion, gardening, and of course, dogs. We’ve both been sewing since childhood, from curtains and coats to gowns, we’ve made it all!

Our family sewing tradition began out of necessity and a spirit of resourcefulness and grew into creating for pleasure, comfort, quality, and a desire to create beautiful things that were customized ‘just so.’

In 2009, when my family adopted a retired racing Greyhound, I looked high and low for a stylish and tailored dog coat to keep my pup warm in the winter. I found some cute coats for little dogs, but nothing for my long legged, skinny-bodied sighthound, Shandy Puccini. And, forget finding chic and modern accessories like crate mats and blankets, especially for big dogs. So, as family tradition dictated, I decided to make my own!

At The Thimble and Hound, we know that your pets are part of your family. We hope that you find the livable quality accessories you need to keep you and your animals in comfort and style.

    I love animals, trees, and toast. I also have a knack for setting things on fire....accidentally.

    I'm a supermodel, but I refuse to get dental veneers or use Crest Whitestrips. I come up with my best ideas while sleeping.

    Sleeping, eating, and squeaking things are my fortes. I'm taking my retirement seriously.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

We'd love to create a custom order for you! If you are ordering something that needs to be sized, please measure very carefully, as we cannot accept returns on custom items. We can provide you with a measurement diagram or any other info you need. Just ask us! We're happy to help.

Please note, the most common custom coat measuring mistakes involve overestimating the length of the dog and measuring too tightly around the chest. When measuring the length, please measure from in between the shoulder blades to where you want the coat to end. When measuring the chest, remember to leave some room for winter hair growth and weight gain.

Care instructions

Fleece and Flannel Dog Coats:
Please close the Velcro before washing. Machine wash the coat in cold water and tumble dry on low or hang to dry. Coats that have been air dried tend to look newer longer. If your coat has reflective tape, please hang to dry.

Crate Mats & Pads:
Machine wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. Hang to dry. Please do not use fabric softener. "Minky" fleece is not compatible with fabric softener.

Pillow Covers:
Dry clean only.

Burrow Bags & Snuggle Sacks:
Machine wash on cold and tumble dry on low.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your order will be packaged in a professional manner. If you need gift wrapping or a special note, just let us know! We're happy to help.
