Photo Gallery: Blue Willow Dog Coats and Pita Beds
I just wanted to say thank you so much for creating such a lovely winter coat for Des. The fit is absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for. It is truly one of a kind - an exceptionally high quality, hand made coat that will endure rough play and sub-freezing temperatures for many years to come.

In the past, Des got very cold in the wintertime wearing the other generic coats we've purchased in stores. She was reluctant to play outside and was miserable taking walks. With the Blue Willow coat, she is keeping super toasty and is finally able to enjoy the New England winter in all of its glory. (Now we can't get her back in the house!)

Boston terrier winter coat

It is a fantastic coat, fits beautifully and I believe my rescue Boston [terrier] who came up north to me from Texas will finally finally finally be warm enough for the walks he needs. Last winter I resorted to putting two coats on him, one over the other and he was STILL cold...because they didn't cover the rump, belly and neck the way yours do. And didn't have the windbreak as well as the insulating materials. -- CR, Boston MA

Thank you for the kind words! We hope Clyde is enjoying his Snow Angel coat this year!

Carlton is quite happy with his pita ped. I probably used to re-cover him six to eight times a night when I'm studying. He woudl turn around on his blanket, become uncovered, and then complain until I help him out. Thanks to his wonderful new pita bed, he now can turn around all he wants and not become uncovered. He figured out how to burrow into it by the end of the first day, and we have put the blankets back in the laundry room!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful and well-made dog bed, I'm so thrilled with it even if it does mean I won't see my dogs all winter!!

 

Don't Luna and Luigi look adorable all snuggled up together? Our pita beds are great for two smaller dogs that like to sleep together.

- D., Norway

Here's a before-and-after picture of Travis braving Norway's oh-so-cold snow in his Snow Angel winter dog coat. As you can see, the Western style coat does not have a closed rear, which leaves room for big wavy tail, a stubby tail that stands up, or long tails which are carried high.

saluki snow coat

"It was about 5 degrees F here in Boston, MA this weekend and Taj absolutely loves his [Snow Angel] coat! Not only does it look luxurious and well-made, but it is very practical too: durable and extremely warm! Taj has done all sorts of leaps and bounds in his coat, and it has stayed on him perfectly. The fleece snood really has helped protect his ears and the belly band keeps him nice and toasty. Your coat is by far more well-made than those we've seen in pet stores..."

Three of the Rain Chaser Waterproof Dog Raincoats, pictured here with a turnback collar and bands around the waist. There is no inner batting but there is an inner layer of Polar Tec fleece. This coat is one of the few non waterproof, non washable coats available on special order (contact me). It is made of a brocade with quilt-like stitching in a rich overall floral pattern. The lining is a floral polar fleece. This coat belongs to Robn Vogt's puppy from Alice Sowder. Very chic!  
 
This is a washable but non-waterproof fake fur-the infamous giraffe pattern! Fred and Gina Leuhr's dog Charlotte had several fittings to make it the absolutely perfect fit...after Charlotte told Fred through a communicator that she needed everyone to look at her - more Bling please! Fred agreed and went giraffe. It's a very handsome fur for both male and female dogs. Paula Knight's Spice also has one. This is the fake fur dog coat. notice in this view how the tummy warmer widens near the rear providing a snug wraparound quality which keeps the wind out of the chest and underbelly where the sighthounds tend to have very little fur....the two straps velcro together on top of the back makiing putting the coats on and off extremely easy with little bending and no fumbling under the tummy.

This coat is on its way to 'CC', Ch.Yorktown's Extra Vitamin C who is a bit longer than Lucy but otherwise of similar proportions...the coat will get a CC monogram and be on its way soon.
