About Us

Welcome!

I launched my first tiny petwear shop in January '08, offering some of the items I made for my own Italian greyhounds. We moved to the mountains of AZ after living in the desert the first few years of their lives and Vinnie didn't like the wind on his ears, so my first fleece hat was born. I soon added belly bands, walking vests and simple fleece PJs that I donated to the Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation for fundraising. As they say, the rest is history ;) I still donate generously to many IG organizations and have a steadfast commitment to rescue and helping dogs in need.

Our clothing styles and ideas have been "borrowed" by others, but know when you buy an SBCO outfit, you are getting the original design and outstanding quality.

Italian greyhounds are hard to fit with their deep chests, long legs and thin bodies. Standard pet clothing just doesn't fit them and they love really soft fabrics because they don't have a lot of body fat or fur to keep them warm. I bought several suits for Valentino from another popular IG company in 2007 and they just didn't fit him right so I got the idea to make CUSTOM clothing, fashioning a pattern for each dog's specific measurements , not "one size fits most". I rediscovered my love of sewing which I'd dabbled in for years after taking a Singer sewing class as young child.

I never imagined that my little hobby would turn into a full-time career and I'm grateful for the 100% positive feedback left by my customers for nearly 10 years. I've outgrown Etsy so I no longer maintain a shop there which is where I started in early '08.

Whether you are buying your first Spoiled Bratzwear outfit or your 20th, you can be assured that each item is made with the highest quality fabrics, meticulous attention to detail and great care by ME. I don't have help nor do I farm work out to others. I enjoy the art of sewing and don't use sergers or other mass-producing machinery. Just my Baby Lock and Pfaff sewing machines, pins and scissors.
I buy many American made fabrics and some of our Polartec® winter fleece is made from 89% post-consumer soda bottles right here in the USA. I'm also a big fan of high quality organic European knits and offer the largest selection of organic fabrics for pet clothing.

Our popular K9 Sunwear™ was the first of it's kind, offering sun~blocking clothing for pets. I originally designed it in 2011 for my Valentino who had an aggressive skin cancer aggravated by the sun. You can read more about him and hemangiosarcoma here: www.k9sunwear.com

My goal is to provide functional, stylish, high quality pet apparel that will last for years. You won't find baby prints, cheap fleece or "frou~frou" in my shop as my first love is designing for Italian greyhounds with their sleek, athletic bodies which should not be covered in ruffles and bows. (or God would have give them fur....)

I work at this business 10+ hrs/day, 5-6 days a week as well as managing my 2 web-stores, an active Facebook business page , marketing, customer service, packing orders, shipping, photographing & fabric sourcing. And then there are the models, chickens and husband to keep happy!!! So yes, this IS my full time job and I do the best I can to get your orders out expeditiously. Ask me if you need something rushed, I'll do my very best to work with you at no extra charge.

I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to work from home and hope that Spoiled Bratzwear meets all of your expectations and then some. I am thrilled when you send me pics of your pets in their custom clothing! Join us on Facebook for lots of fun and hundreds of customer pics.

My husband of 24 years and I both maintain home offices on 3 open acres and gorgeous mountain views just north of Prescott, Arizona. I embrace a gluten~free vegan lifestyle and believe our animal friends are for admiring NOT eating. We lovingly raise Silkie chickens and sell their fertile eggs for other enthusiasts to hatch. We have a small flock of 10 laying chickens and 3 ducks, our neighbors & friends LOVE the fresh organic eggs we share with them, and the dogs do too. I cook their meals as well.
We forgot to have skin kids but our active lifestyle keep us so busy we hardly notice.....

If you ever travel to AZ, come see us! We are about 2 hours north of Phoenix and just over the mountain from breathtaking Sedona. We are 100 miles south of Flagstaff and you'll drive right by on the way to the Grand Canyon.

Thanks for stopping by to meet us, and thank you for your business.
