As I sat in my booth at the AKC dog show last week I came to the decision that I would like to try my hand at making cool coats for dogs. Every dog show and agility event that I go to, I find myself looking at them thinking I would like some for my guys but can't rationalize paying as much as they charge for them.
They can't be that hard to make, can they? I have the ribbon, thread, webbing, buckles, sewing and embroidery machines. All I'm missing is the shammy material, which I found wholesale at a fairly reasonable price. Thanks to two very generous English Mastiff folks, I will be able to ship them from the warehouse to a US address and then they will be carted across the border right to Calgary, reducing the cost of cross-border shipping and making it a feasible venture.
There will be five flavors: yellow, orange, pink, blue and teal. Sizing and pricing will come once I have a chance to play with the material and come up with a Nearly Naked Neckwear design. My brother assisted in coming up with just the coolest name for them which will be unveiled when they are ready for sale.
