How Whirly Dog Supplies Got it's Start
March of 2011, I adopted a sweet little Maltese dog named Whirly from the local animal shelter. I tried purchasing different sized clothes for him but "small" was too small and "medium" was too big, so I decided to start making him clothes. I used my little Whirly as a test subject and model for the apparel. He happily wears the clothes I make and when I take him for walks he seems to prance as he goes, as if he is showing off. He is an incredibly sweet dog.
I started looking at the design of the clothes I purchased and adjusted them to his size and I noticed that many of the clothes where hard to put on and take off. I needed something easy to use. Therefore, all the clothes I make are in the form of a wrap, most use Velcro for closures. This makes them easy to use and it provides him with more movement and comfort.
Once I started making clothes for Whirly, I noticed that everyone was commenting on how cute he looked in them and they wanted to know where I got them. One day, my neighbor (and friend) suggested that I make and sell them. I started selling them on eBay and Etsy. My customers love the product, so I decided to make the clothes available to everyone by starting up my own website.
I talked with other dog owners - friends, family, people at the park, fabric store employees, or anyone willing to give me their opinion. The overwhelming consensus was that people want something easy to use. Dog owners with smaller dogs find it difficult to get the tiny legs through sleeves and dealing with snaps or buttons were simply too hard. Now I know there are other wraps on the market that use Velcro closures, however you can’t find ones made with the same high quality fabric and material we use.
I make the apparel as a one piece wrap. This eliminates stress on seams, because there are none, except on the hoodies. When attaching the Velcro I run three lines of stitching at the outer point because of the wear when pulling them apart.
The materials I use are only the best designer fabrics. The fleece is anti-pill and cottons are prewashed to avoid shrinkage. All clothing is machine washable unless otherwise noted in the listing. Even if you have a small dog, they are dogs – meaning they love to play, dig, roll around, and get dirty. So feel free to throw your new wrap in the wash with your other dirty laundry.
A lot of the dog apparel I make is one-of-a-kind. When I go to the fabric store, I first look for remnants to purchase before buying from a bolt. It’s important to me to be eco friendly. Remnants work for smaller dogs and it helps to keep our landfills from filling up. However, this is not always the case, sometimes you may see larger quantities for certain items if I have special orders and there is a lot of left over material or if I find clearance or bulk fabric that the store is trying to get rid of.
