“Nothing is better than a dog in a sweater.” – Unknown.
Like I need another excuse to dress up our adorable furry family members? It’s National Dress Up Your Pet Day, and it’s also a cause for celebration for the Sugarboys Family. This past year, I saw our highest number of custom pet sweater sales since I started sharing our gifts with the world! I wanted to appreciate our customers by sharing some personal Sugarboys “tails” about some fur babies who love our sweaters.
I love this photo of 14-year-old Italian Greyhound/Rat Terrier mix Mongie. This beautiful pup is sporting a mock cable sweater with a mock turtleneck in the colorway basil. She loves the superb quality of our handknit piece, and the color is perfect for the cold weather season. I mean, just look at her up against those fall colors! According to mom:
“Mongie wears it all the time. It fits her perfectly, and she seems to love it. I've washed it once already (on delicate cycle, laid flat to dry), and it looks great.”- Heather
Our custom dog sweaters are handmade by me: incorporating classic and prized design to remind you of warmth and nature. I also handpick the colors and know you will find the perfect fit and style for your pet!
Can’t find one of the creations in your size? No problem! I custom made this cool accessory for Pondo, an Olde English Bull Dogge. To ensure the perfect fit, I sent Pondo’s mom a sample sweater in extra-large; I keep it on hand for dressing a life-sized stuffed Labrador Retriever for craft shows. The sample allowed me to make some custom tweaks to ensure the best fit. But take it from her:
“Both Pondo and I love it Shelly! Thank you for taking the time to do this. The colors are beautiful and the sweater is so soft. You really do an amazing job!”
In November, I met the very handsome and regal Remington, a Springer Spaniel living near me. Pet dad wanted something that would show off his colors so he chose a mock cable sweater in the colorway pullman. Pet mom wanted the turtleneck extra long so the neck can be folded up to function as a “snood” to keep those ears from dragging in the dirt. One session of measurements and a week later the sweater was done! They ordered a second sweater for sister Lucy too!
There are many different sizes available on our website; however, Sugarboy’s motto is “Measure Twice, Buy Once!” Can’t find a sweater in your size? No problem!
Here is our recommended measuring guide:
Wool sweaters are wardrobe staples for autumn and winter months, and merino wool is one of the most versatile and resilient fibers. Other fibers have yet to mimic its natural benefits of renewable, soft next to the skin, and biodegradable.

I feel fortunate to have had one of our best years with one of our most unique and exceptional products. A handmade sweater from Sugarboys is a gift created with quality and sustainable materials to benefit your pet and planet.
