Welcome to The Posh Dog Clothing Company – a world of unique handmade artisan dog wear and lifestyle treats.
I am an experienced dog trainer / handler and have been working with terriers with ‘issues’ for the past 40 years – add this to a serious knitting and sewing habit – a passion for colour – an understanding of the dog’s needs – and you have a unique range of handmade dog wear that is practical, durable, individual, and colourful. Most of my designs are my own patterns and you will find a huge range of sizes listed in the shop – I can work to order for the different breed shapes and disabilities.
I have several chronic health problems – including fibromyalgia – Chronic Fatigue – ME – IBS – COPD. This has stopped my training activities – and I have had to stop agility work – but I am always on hand for advice and tips – and kisses and cuddles of course! My love for working with dogs has to be filled with making them jumpers these days. oh – and baking – the baking is so much fun!
I have a loads of dog jumper patterns! I am an advanced knitter and have collected quite a dog pattern collection over the years. I love to play with colour combinations and patterns – each jumper is unique – I don’t repeat a colour / design combination. All jumper styles are listed individually with all the body measurements – if you see something you like – double check all the measurements and grab it!!!! You won’t meet another dog dressed in your jumper – but with the added distinctive button everyone will know you have a Posh Dog.
All of the work is done in my tiny studios in The Lake District, with my little dog snugging in beside me.
My dog bakes go down a storm! I am fully DEFRA reg and licensed – so you know the legal stuff is OK – And after all this time spent understanding dogs – I really understand what they like!!! My Alfie is actually registered as the Quality Control Officer for Posh Dog Bakes
My work is available for sale in my ‘real’ shop @ The Kitten and the Goat, 9 New Shambles, Kendal, Cumbria LA9 4TS
