Sorry to hear about your pug's allergies!  Funny, it never came up on ANY of the websites I was looking at for pugs for the three MONTHS I looked before we got him. And yet, almost everyone I've talked to seems to have an allergy-prone pug (maybe the people with the non-allergy laden pugs just don't respond?).

Right now, he's on a salmon/rice dog food (it's one of the better brands, though not the best, according to my research), but I don't see that it's made a big difference (I see from my above post that it's been about 5 months).  I've actually made two other coats since then (he shredded the front of second coat within 3 months). Our next attempt is going to be an stiff interfacing collar about 3 inches wide. 

Thanks for looking!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I really like the collar of the first coat, cute idea!

Now for the moderator hat-please remember to stay on topic of the craft. Off topic comments will be edited or deleted. Thanks!

I have two black pugs!! I luvs them.. one is mine and ones is my daughters who moved back in with me..They are brothers.. from another mother..( same dad.. different moms) anyway my baby Charlie is fine..  no problems at all.. Willy on the other had gets it bad..I believe his allergy is to fleas.. so I make sure he has some kind of flea medication on him always.. I love the coat idea.. but dont think he will lol.. He has been known to get under the coffee table and rub until his skin is raw..right now it seems to be doing okay..

It took Sam a while to get used to wearing the coats, I admit.  I'm sorry one of your pugs has allergies, too, tmurray.  And I heard this year was bad for fleas, too.

Here's a picture of the most recent one (reconned from one of my husband's old shirts): 

I got a little smarter, and put a double layer of fabric for the front (chest area). I'm also using button down shirts because his last coat caused a large scab by his neck, so I'm thinking he might be allergic to whatever metal they use for the zipper pull, too. Unfortunately, I just noticed today that he's managed to scratch through both layers this morning, so I'll be making another one soon.
