The latest in the onesie fashion craze? Onesies for dogs! That’s right – you’ve heard it here first: there are onesies for your canine companions. Scottish business owner and seamstress Aileen Perry can expect about thirty orders a day for her dog onesie, and she’s only been in business for a year! In fact, business is booming so much that she recently had to add an assistant to help make the onesies and process the orders.
It all began in 2013 when Perry designed a onesie for her dog, Toto. Worried that Toto would get wet or muddy during their walks, Aileen set out to design a garment to combat the issues, and the dog onesies (called K9 Coats) were born! Based in the United Kingdom, orders from the United States and Australia have bombarded Perry in recent months. Recently, Perry received an order from paint company Dulux, to outfit their brand mascot, an Old English Sheepdog named Aslan.
Sold for fifty pounds a piece, Aileen has applied for a patent on the design of the onesie, which includes a hood and elastic cuffs that allow for full movement when worn. So far, Aslan has donned his custom-made onesie to several photo shoots to ensure that he will not become dirty when he goes out for a break in between photos. Aslan’s owner, Fiona Mullen, swears by the onesie, saying that for a big, furry dog like Aslan the K9 Coat has become a Godsend! With the pet clothing market a $58 billion dollar enterprise, it’s no wonder that Ms. Perry is excited about her venture and success so far!
