Made for you dog coats
Frustrated with mass-produced dog coats? We were, too!
When I first got my dog Scout (yes, she is the namesake of the company), I bought a few of those cheap dog coats from the local big-box pet store only to find they didn't fit well and quickly fell apart. So, I started to make my own!
My high-quality waterproof dog coats were borne out of numerous experiments with various materials, styles and features. This research resulted in a full line of water-resistant dog coats and hand-knit dog sweaters that are professionally and ergonomically designed for the active outdoor and performance dog. All of our dog gear is made in-house, in our local Vancouver, Canada shop. We use top quality materials and hand sew and hand-knit everything.
We are proud to offer a great line of dog coats in 5 sizes (XS-XL). Check out our Fitting Your Dog section to learn how to measure your dog to get the perfect fit.
I can't say enough about our Scouter Wear jacket, especially during this rainy season. My favourite features are the reflective piping, multiple spots to hook up a leash, and just how completely waterproof it is.
We will soon have SUBSCRIPTION packages to SAVE you money
When you sign up for our subscription package, you'll get a new style every second month for a full year to build out your dog's "must-have" wardrobe! Check out some of our styles...
Here's What People Are Saying
Today, I am proud of my confident transformation. I still have a lot to learn and will face new future challenges. But Jill is a special person and wonderful teacher and an inspiration to me. If you have any unanswered questions Jill is always willing to help through her experience and patience. Sewing dog wear has become my NEW passion. A dream of mine has been fulfilled and Jill has made the learning curve easier and enjoyable.
I was really impressed with the patterns, and video tutorials, especially as I hadn't sewn in a very long time (amazing what you forget). Your information was easy to follow, and my raincoat was very professional looking.
People Have Asked...
Absolutely! I have instructions on how to measure your dog and how to customize patterns for a tailored fit. Once you learn the secrets of designing your own dog wear, you'll never want to buy off-the-shelf apparel again!
Yes! You absolutely need a sewing machine. If you don't have one, perhaps you can borrow one. Or, if you're ready to purchase, I can send you some suggestions about what to look for when buying so that your sewing experience is easy and fun.
Sewing experience helps but so long as you are committed and excited to learn there are a ton of resources to help you get started.
You can work with any sewing machine. As long as it has a straight stitch and a zig-zag stitch. A basic machine is all you need!
