    I'm looking for some, frustratingly so. All I keep finding are the Dock Dog brand ones. I have neoprene vests which I love, I don't need those, I am looking for custom suits made of the same type of material human swimming suits are made out of (I presume). I know they exist but I'm failing.

    help.

    please.

    I used VEDesigns (on etsy and facebook both) with great success. She did embroidery and Chase patches and stitched on patches I sent her for no additional charge and I got to pick my fabric from her supplier and she special ordered it. :) Great service!

    Other friends swear by Super Fly Suits, but I haven't had any experiences with them myself.

    Nice looking swim wear Star dogs. Can I ask though, what's the point of putting swim wear on a dog? Honest question, it just doesn't make sense to me at the moment. I can understand life jackets.

    Advertising, slicking the water off the dog coat, making them more water dynamic, to look cool. ;)

    Thanks Erin, that's exactly what I was looking for!

    Mostly to look cool for my dogs, heavier coated dogs do get more help with being slicker like Adrianne said. I also use mine to display sponsor logos. :)

    Adrianne - Vivian also make capes if you want the Super Dog look for fun. One of my friends, with a NSDTR, has like 5 suits from VEDesigns and two of them have capes. LOL
