Cheap dog sweaters Vs Quality Canine sweaters: Differences to know
February 22, 2023
How can you tell between a dog sweater that is mass produced cheaper versus a high end handknit sweater? Is there even a difference? Check this out:
Cheap dog sweaters flop around at the back and don't hug the body. In the image above, look at the edging around the thighs, that red sweater corner will not stay on the dog and the sweater will easily flip back compared to the Bravehound sweater. Below, you can see how the black Halloween sweater back looks like a rectangle of fabric lays on the back instead of a form fitting knit.
Here below you can see the stomach panel isn't fitted and curved, it doesn't follow the line of the dog and doesn't keep the sweater in place with the grey sweater. The neckline is also much too wide.
The knit is thin and stretches out of shape easily, the yarn is low quality, feels like a cheap sweater and doesn't really keep the dog warm, especially if damp. I haven't found any other sweater outside of Bravehound that has a turtleneck that folds over.
Lastly, put the sweaters in a wash over and over. Good well made ones will bounce back into shape and last for years and years. Cheaper ones will stretch or break.

The Warmest Sweaters for Vizslas and why they're worth the $$
December 13, 2022
Beautiful hand-knit sweaters made specifically to fit Vizslas from XS to XL are available here on Redbarkshop. With beautiful cable-knit detailing on the backs, and lots of thick stretchy ribbing on the front, these knits are so flexible they're perfect for cold nights and walks. Unlike other cheaper sweaters, they actually fit the Vizsla body and hug their backs and stomachs, never hanging loose.
Sweaters in Oat
Whiskey is 54lbs with a 21 inch long back, larger-boned and fits a medium size, this sweater is the color Iron.
Bourbon is 47lbs with a 21 inch long back, is skinny and young, and fits a large size in forest green.
From pocket sized Vizslas to big European Males, these were made with hundreds of Vizsla measurements in mind. With a hole in the neck for a leash, and beautiful logo detailing, these are made to last and last. I've even helped rehome older sweaters that dogs have grown out of.
Dalmatian Winter Handknit Sweaters
December 06, 2022
Do Dalmatians need a coat in the winter? Well like any short-haired dog, the need for extra warmth is always needed as the temperature drops.
Be sure to add a sweater or jacket for winter activities outside including walks, strolls, and hikes.
The longer skinny dogs can have a hard time finding the perfect fit in winter coats, but Red Bark Shop offers sweaters that fit Dalmatians perfectly. Originally sized for Vizslas, they fit the similarly shaped Dalmatians and stretch with movement and bounding leaps over snow.
The Online Vizsla Shop
November 24, 2022
Welcome to the best shop for Vizsla owners and fans! I started Red Bark Shop 1.5 years ago after I started Vizsla calendar sales to raise money for charities. After a couple years I added stickers, then went all in with hats, sweaters, and jewelry.
The designs are my own, based on my drawings and paintings over the years inspired by our adventures (and misadventures). Photographs are also on sale as well as loads of Vizsla themed hats, shirts, stickers, and more.
Everything is shipped directly from my home and funds help support my blog and the content on my Instagram. Lets call it a treat fund for my Vizslas! It takes time to make content daily so thank you so much for popping by. Please take a look around the shop and hit me up if you have ideas for anything you'd like to see!

NEW Pointing Dog Precious Metal Jewelry, Vizsla, Weimaraner, German Pointers, and English Pointers
November 09, 2022
I finally got in Canadian hand-made silver and gold jewelry just in time for the holidays! There's also an economical wood earring option for stocking stuffers or birthday presents.
There are the classic pointer silhouette necklaces and earrings that match (the earrings are smaller than the pendant). Because a longer tail would break, we tried our best to mimic a pointer's longer tail but in this way the silhouette works for many pointing breeds including Vizsla, Weimaraner, English Pointer and GSPs. I'm SOOO happy I found the most wonderful jeweler in Quebec to help me make these!
Gold pieces are also available to but made to order most of the time (I only have a small number in stock). Reach out if you want one shipped out quickly and I can let you know what I have ready to go.
These earrings are oxidized in a process that gives a very modern look in silver only.
For those that want to wear something more minimal and dainty, these studs are perfect.
Lastly the wood options are so cute and whimsical and come in matching or mismatching pairs with mountains and birds.
