Cardigan Alteration Add-On

Regular price €10,95 EUR
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The cardigan alteration can be added onto majority of styles, both long sleeved or classic hound-tee styles, with or without a skivvy neck.

It is to help make putting tees on and off easier for those hounds who don't like having the legs touched or lifted and for amputees. 

This is an adjustment only - tee not included and must also be ordered.
Please allow up to 5 working days for your order

 Styles:

  • Sleeveless: The cardigan has snap studs down a rib trim side panel for easier dressing. Just pop the tee over the head, then snap the panel around to the side.

  • Long sleeve: Pop tee on ground, step feet in and pull up legs, then over head. Snap the side up. We only recommend this on the cotton spandex styles.

To undo: We use industrial strength press studs for this adjustment, so they are super strong! Due to this you may find them a little harder to undo. Please do not use too much force to undo them, or pull them open from the fabric. This can reduce the lifespan of the studs, or pull them off the fabric. We recommend using your fingers to hold it right at the stud and gently pull them apart. 

To order: Add this into your order along with the tees you want to order. If you have ordered multiply tees and want the adjustment on all of them, make sure you add the same quantity of adjustments to the order. If you order multiple tees but only want the adjustment on certain ones, please let us know what tee you want it added to in the notes section in your checkout cart. 

If you are still unsure if the cardigan alteration is for you, email us at aroo@houndtees.com.au

Frequently asked questions

How do I put on a Hound-Tee?

Putting on a Sleeveless Hound-Tee
1. Boop their snoot right on through the head hole (Place their head through the neck opening).

  1. Centre the Hound-Tee along their back.
  2. Lift their front paws one at a time behind the ankle joint and guide them through the arm opening. The stretchy chest panel makes this easy!

Putting on a Long-Sleeve Hound-Tee

  1. Follow the steps above for the head and neck.
  2. For their legs, hold their paw and guide it down through the sleeve to the cuff. Covering their claws with your hand will make it easier to slide through.
  3. Pull the rest of the garment down and over their chest

Putting on Long-John Hound-Tees 

  1. Follow the above steps for sleeves, but for their back legs, slide the garment over to the side, lift the back leg and place it through the leg opening. You do not need to raise the leg much – just enough to step it back into the leg hole.
  2. Pull the Hound-Tee up and over to the other side and repeat.
  3. Align the garment around the tail.

Release the hounds! How do I take a Hound-Tee off my doggo? 

The reverse banana peel (a very technical term) is our method for removing Sleeveless and Long-Sleeve Hound-Tees. Here’s a very scientific explanation of the reverse banana peel:

  1. Grab the tail of the Hound-Tee and pull it upward toward their shoulder area.
  2. Gently push down your snoot’s head and swiftly peel the Hound-Tee down over their head.
  3. Drop the Hound-Tee to the ground and step each leg out by holding it behind the ankle joint and guiding it out.
  4. Give them a big scratch and some treats for being a good doggo!

You can watch Aunt-Tee Jen flawlessly executing the reverse banana peel on a very good snootermodel in the video on our clothing guide page

What is the best weight factor for my hound?

Warmth Factor 1: Sleeveless Hound-Tees 
Sleeveless Hound-Tees are perfect for those days when the weather is just slightly chilly or when your fur baby needs some sun protection during outdoor activities. Additionally, these tees are ideal for houndies who don't particularly enjoy wearing sleeves

Warmth Factor 2: Long Sleeve Hound-Tees 
Long Sleeve Hound-Tees offer a bit more coverage and warmth compared to their sleeveless counterparts. They are perfect for days when the weather is a bit cooler, making them an excellent choice for roachin' around the house or outdoor sniffaris during crisp days.

Warmth Factor 2.5 - 4: Long Johns 
Long Johns take warmth to the next level, providing full-body coverage for your dog with protection for all four quick stix. The warmth factor depends on what material our Long Johns are made out of - tee, tweater or sweater material. These Hound-Tees are perfect for tackling colder weather and an ideal choice for overnight sleeping.

Warmth Factor 3: Tweaters 
Made from French terry cotton, Tweaters are the perfect in between for when it’s not quite hot enough for a tee but not quite cold enough for a sweater. The midweight fabric is great for transitioning seasons! Most tweaters have a long sleeve or sleeveless option depending on leggy preference.

Warmth Factor 4: Sweaters 
Sweaters are another excellent option for colder days, providing full-body warmth and coverage for your doggo. Most sweaters have a long sleeve or sleeveless option depending on leggy preference. These cosy garments are designed to be the perfect remedy for a cold day and are particularly ideal for overnight sleeping and outdoor adventures during colder months. Sweaters will fit over any other Hound-Tees style – the perfect outer layer.

How do I tell if my hound needs a Hound-Tee?

'Snowballing' or curling up tightly
If your doggo is all curled up, they're doing their best to conserve body heat! Please do what you can to warm them up, so they're happy to stretch back out or roach the day away.

Their ears are cold
If your hound's ears are cold to the touch, they'll be feeling cold all over!

Their paw pads are cold
Doggos regulate heat through their paw pads, and if your hound's feetsies are cold, they need some warming up.

Are you cold?
If you're cold, your doggo won't be too far behind. Sighthound's bods do run at a higher base temp than hoomans, so they should typically feel warm to your touch.

Shivering
Not to be confused with chattering – like hoomans, doggos will shiver to warm up

Shaking it off
Some greyhounds will attempt to shake off the cold like it were water.

They're holding their paws up off the ground
If your doggo is using a ginger step or reluctant to walk, the ground could be too cold for them.

It's 15℃ or below
Your sighthound should have a coat on in these conditions. Remember to layer them up if they get extra cold.

Cardi Alterations for previously purchased sleevless tees .

I cannot praise Jen and her team enough , for their amazing help and workmanship in turning 12 of Bonnie's tees into trendy cardis . It always seemed a bit hard getting my 11 year old girl into her beautiful clothes , but the addition of these closures has made the whole process soooooo much easier , and a total pleasure . Amazingly , she almost dresses herself . Thanks to all at HOUND TEES . Bonnie LUFFS AROO !!!!

Highly Recommend it!

Since needing some foot surgery my hound prefers his feet are not handled (not aggressive, just refuses to lift them). This alteration has made keeping him warm a more agreeable experience for both of us. The button studs are sturdy and high quality, and never pop open.

Best option for gear shy pups

My grey doesn’t like the process of putting on the traditional style tee (hates legs being handled ect) but this makes it so easy.. just slip over the head then do up the snaps… snaps are quite firm but once you get past that it’s fine

Sheer brilliance

Neo the handsomest greyhound in the world is extremely impressed with the cardigan feature. No. More. Stress.
He only wishes his human knew about this for the other hound tees but not to worry, it's a done deal from now on! Happy days ✅
