organic cotton and hemp Eco Dog Jackets


What’s wrong with those pictures?  Support working canine models by hiring real dog’s for your ads and promotions.  It’s tough enough making a living in the doggie modeling biz without having to compete with scary fake dachshunds.  Please don’t make all my hard work on the casting couch go for naught.

seamlksupprofside___1_1_1.JPGNow about those Pete & Baily Jackets…organic cotton and hemp, nicely fitted with adjustable velcro fastener, fully lined, sustainably harvested buttons, a matching collar and a plantable hang tag…trés eco-fashionable.

Pete comes in pistachio and Baily comes in pink — extra small through large sizes.
