Welcome! - New to KickStarter, This is How It Works.
- You select the reward you want, make your gracious pledge and we love you for it! xo
- If we reach our Project Goal we start working hard to deliver on the rewards promised.
- If we miss our Project Goal you get refunded the full amount and we cry a little, which we hope never happens.
We spent over 5 months developing a hoodie that is of the highest quality materials, that feels soft and warm for both you and your pet and also highly durable, fashionable and functional. (Click below for a 360 degree view of Roodie without a pet inside)
Once your pet gets a taste of just how comfortable and cozy, not to mention how LAZY they can be, we can’t make any promises they’ll ever want to be without their Roodie!
PRO TIP #1: Seen enough, can't wait any longer!? We've got you covered with a reward to secure one of the extremely limited 100 Roodies that are premade already and waiting to ship the day after this campaign ends! Look for reward: *** THE EXCLUSIVE PET LOVER! ***
PRO TIP #2: If we raise enough we are unlocking Purple or Turquoise color Roodies and a Unisex Charcoal gray. You can vote for your favourite color. Read more about that further down on this page.
- Roodie is made of 80% cotton and 20% polyester with strong zippers and snaps, a thick woven drawstring with leather-look ends, elastic stretch bottom & cuffs, and a small leather-look brand tag - making for a comfy, durable, and stylish look.
- Features a Removable machine-washable liner that allows for easy cleaning and additional hidden zippered hand pockets which are separate from the inner pouch.
- You can wear Roodie with the pouch expanded to hold a small lightweight pet when lounging or walking around. Or you can wear it zipped up without your pet and still look very stylish.
Now lets talk about that HUGE expandable pouch. Roodie can support small pets that are under 15 pounds (7 kilos). Perfect for your furbaby. The pouch itself is a great alternative to not carrying a purse with you. Excellent for a lazy day coffee run, an outdoor hike in the fresh air, camping trips, or even travel days.
IMPORTANT: Roodie was designed for women. Sizes are female cut, not unisex, with a tighter fit and run a little smaller than normal. If we hit our stretch goal we will introduce a Unisex version (More on that below in the Vote For Your Favourite Color section.)
Please use our Size Chart section below when figuring out the size you should order. If you like a little roomier hoodie we suggest ordering a size up, but measure to be sure.
Note: You will select your size and color(s) at a later point after the campaign ends.
Note: Need a larger size than is shown here? Don't let that stop you from contributing to this project. We will work with our manufacture to make sure we have something for everyone!
Inner Pouch Dimensions
14" (35.56cm) width, 9" (22.86cm) height and 4" (10.16cm) depth
Pet Weight Support: around 7 kilos or (15.43 lbs) max.
The inspiration for Roodie came from growing up on a farm. I can remember how we used to put the kittens in the pockets of our hoodies and how much they loved it. They would curl up in the pockets, so content and sleep for hours. So I thought to myself why not do this for larger pets too, all we need is a bigger pocket right? So that’s what we did.
Be one the first in the world to own a Roodie Pet Hoodie. Have a look at our rewards, there’s something for every pet lover. A contribution from you today would mean so much. With your help we will be able to afford the high manufacturing costs associated with maintaining the high quality and style standards we will need to bring this amazing hoodie to market.
PRO TIP: Look for Reward *** THE EXCLUSIVE PET LOVER! - PREMADE, SHIPS EARLY + FREE SHIPPING! *** Secure your chance to own one of the first 100 Roodies already premade and waiting to ship just 1 day after this campaign ends!
If we meet our project goal we will be manufacturing the Blue Roodie. We wish we could offer more but it's not cheap to add a new color in 7 sizes.
Help us to hit our stretch Goal of $19,000 USD ($24,500 Canadian) and we will unlock the most popular voted color between Purple and Turquoise. We want you to tell us which you want!
Cast your vote here on our Facebook to vote for Purple or Turquoise.
Pro Tip: Share the post with your female friends and get them to vote for the color you want most!
Help us to hit our stretch Goal of $25,000 USD ($32,300 Canadian) and we will unlock:
- 1) The most voted color between Purple and Turquoise AND
- 2) A Unisex Black (light grey trim) Roodie.
We are giving you all the power here, lets make it happen! :)
Please follow us now and in the future. We'd love you to share with us pictures of your special pet, especially wearing a Roodie! You can find us on these social platforms.
Sharing this page with pet loving friends would be a big help too. Any way you can help contribute to this campaign is greatly appreciated. Lets spread the pet love!
- You won't find Roodie for the early bird price of $39 US ($50 CAD, €34, £27) ever again.
- It is proven. 30+ people have bought a production sample run of Roodie and they love it. See the testimonials and happy faces below.
- This project is open worldwide and we are taking on a good portion of the shipping costs ourselves, passing the savings onto you!
- You KNOW your furbaby will love it as much or more than you - treat them because they can't treat themselves. :)
Before ordering a large quantity we wanted to test the market and gather feedback. So we did a minimal production quality sample run. These hoodies are exactly the same as the Roodie you will be receiving if you choose to graciously back this project. We didn't want to simply give them away because that would not be a good true test so we sold about 30 to a lucky few ranging from $49 to $79 US. Here are some of their testimonials.
I ordered the correct size as my daughter is a European size 40. It was a perfect fit. I think the quality is very good, the material is very soft and comfortable. The Colour is good, it would be nice to have the options of other colours, but I'm sure you're already looking into that :-)
The animal is a small chihuahua. She's very small and only weighs 2kgs. She fits the pouch perfect, and I'm glad I chose the correct size fitting so the hoodie wasn't too baggy.
Packaging was very simple, but that's ok for me, I'd rather the money be spent on the quality of the product not the packaging. :-)
Good luck with the product, my daughter loves it and her dog does too. I wish you all the best with your new venture!
We ship worldwide and have decided to cover a good portion of the shipping costs ourselves, passing those savings onto you! We will either be shipping from within the USA or overseas depending on how much we can raise.

USA and Canada - $8 CAD ( approx $6.30 US, €5.50, £4.30 )

Risks and challenges
We’re happy to say our design is finalized and our manufacturer selected and ready. They are just waiting on us to tell them how many we need to produce and when they need to have them ready by. As a backup measure, we even have another manufacturer standing by.
As mentioned in one of our reward tiers we’ve had over 100 production run samples made and proud to say they met our quality control standards and timelines so we are confident we can deliver consistently on a much larger order resulting from this Kickstarter being a big success, with your help.
Overall we foresee that the project will be on schedule. Our promise to you is to keep you updated throughout the whole process. If there are any stumbling blocks to impact target dates you’ll know about them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
