About Us

Welcome!

I launched my first tiny petwear shop (Hatz 4 Bratz) in January '08 offering some of the items I started making for my own Italian greyhounds in 2007.
We moved to the cool mountains of AZ in '06 after living in the Sonoran 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". Out of necessity 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 regularly to many IG organizations and have a steadfast commitment to rescue and helping dogs in need.

Our clothing styles and ideas (many were the first of their kind) have been "borrowed" by others, but know when you buy an SBCO outfit, you are getting a functional original design and outstanding handmade quality. I work alone with meticulous attention to detail and some of the finest fabrics available.

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 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 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 fondness for sewing which I'd dabbled in for years after taking a Singer sewing class as a 7 year old child.

I never imagined that my little hobby would turn into a full-time career with international reach to 25 (and growing) countries and I'm grateful for the 100% positive feedback left by my customers these past 10 years. Working hard with integrity and without compromise really does pay off.

Our popular K9 Sunwear™ was the first of it's kind offering sun~blocking clothing for pets. Originally designed in early 2011 for my Valentino who had an aggressive skin cancer aggravated by the strong AZ sun. You can read more about him and his battle with 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 8+ 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 grateful that I have the opportunity to work from home and hope that Spoiled Bratzwear meets all of your expectations and then some. Join us on Facebook and Instagram for lots of fun and hundreds of customer pics.

My husband and I both maintain home offices on 3 open acres and gorgeous mountain views just north of Prescott, Arizona. We embrace a dairy-free vegetarian lifestyle and believe our furred and feathered animal friends are for admiring NOT eating.
We forgot to have skin kids but our pets & our businesses keep us so busy we hardly notice.....
