Welcome to the online shop for Patchwork and Paws Dog Gear!
This shop is run by Shay, a disabled service dog handler. I opened the shop in 2016 to help bring high quality gear to the service dog community and I'm so proud and honored to have provided gear for hundreds of fellow handlers, as well as various other shops and even pet owners! I look forward to making your gear dreams a reality!
Our main menu is at the top of this page, and includes a gallery linking to our Instagram page, our shop policies which include most legal details, as well as shopping options for vests, patches, and our other gear! The store pages have specific listings and instructions, but if there are ever any questions, please feel free to reach out via our Instagram, Facebook, or email!
HOW DO I ORDER?
At the top of any page on our website, you can find a menu with all of our product pages! We offer custom and pre-designed patches, custom built vests, and so much more! If you have questions or need help placing an order, feel free to reach out to us via social media at any time!
DO YOU MAKE _______?
We try to at least casually mention every item we make here on this page, so if it's mentioned here, YES! If not, then maybe! Send me a message detailing what you're looking for and your expectations, and I'm more than happy to talk about it with you and see if it's something I can make for you in the future. If not, I may be able to direct you in to someone who can!
Just for a point of interest for others: we have made gear not only for dogs, but cats and miniature horses as well!
WHAT IS YOUR WAIT TIME?
Currently, I do not work off of a wait list. I do, however, have a turnaround time of anywhere between 3 and 10 weeks based on the size of your order. Most small patch-only based orders will ship within 3-4 weeks. Vests and large, bulk patch orders (10+ patches) may take up to 8; bulk orders of multiple vests, or large amounts of both vests and patches may take up to 10. Please keep this in mind when ordering and be aware that detailed customization does take it's toll here as well!
CAN I SEE PICTURES OF YOUR WORK?
Absolutely! We love to show off both our work directly and our happy customers with their new gear! I keep a running gallery on both Facebook and Instagram and will be uploading the same to this site as time allows and we fully transition to the shop! Models and customers alike are always welcome to send in photos of their animals in their gear!
CAN I GET _________ FOR FREE/IN EXCHANGE FOR REVIEW/TO TEST?
At this time, I'm sorry to announce that I do not currently offer items to the general public in exchange for a review! I have a handful of models and select customers that I trust exclusively to test my items, and as of now all positions are currently filled. My shop is my sole source of income and my livelihood, and as I'm sure you can understand, I already offer my work at very little profit for myself and cannot afford to continually give gear away.
That aside, however, I often DO host both raffles and giveaways, so keep your eyes open for those posts on social media!
CAN YOUR GEAR BE USED FOR MOBILITY?
My gear is currently made to handle light mobility work done with a pull strap or a light handle, such as grounding and guide work but it is in no way currently rated for heavy mobility or for picking up your dog unless specifically stated otherwise in your customized order. It takes far higher grade material to allow for heavy mobility, often metal or leather, and even the best made equipment can be misused easily. I only guarantee my items for light mobility! Anything else will need to be discussed with me prior or at the time of making your custom gear order.
