The California Chi

The California Chi Custom pet apparel and goods. My clothing is for all size pets; such as, dogs, cats, rabbits, and ferrets. Even pets with disabilities/handicaps.

Prices are based on size, style, and type of fabric used to create the garment. Everything is handmade. Also, in an effort to be eco friendly I save my fabric scraps and use them to make toys and stuff beds. I do my best to use as much of my supplies as possible. Animal Charity work is one of my passions. I work with several shelters selling my merchandise at adoption events and donating a portion

USPS ‘gridlocked’ as historic crush of holiday packages sparks delays

FYI! There are going to be major delays in order deliveries. Please don’t take it out on the sellers you order from or postal workers. Once a package ships the seller doesn’t have any control and the postal workers are doing their job as fast as they can.

Private carriers FedEx and UPS have cut off delivery service for some retailers, sending massive volumes of packages to the Postal Service.

UPDATE: 1 week left to get orders in. I’m playing catch-up with messages & finalizing the last of the custom orders. Once costumes sell out they will not be re-listed. Currently working on 100+ costumes. Rush orders have delayed standard orders.
Last day to order a RUSH is 9/5/2020. Shop will close on 9/6/2020, so I can focus on all current orders.

FYI, due to Covid-19 packages can become delayed. The shipping industry has been overwhelming bombarded by online orders. When California Chi ships we are told one date, but are being notified by customers that per the tracking the date has been extended. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do. Many of the people working on sorting and delivering your packages are over worked due to the system not being able to process the work load. Online sales skyrocketed to 70%+ this past quarter. Please be patient and give love to your mail and package delivers.

Hey everyone!!! PLEASE READ!!!
My last day to order costumes is October 3rd for Halloween delivery. If you need it before the weekend of Halloween it will have to be a RUSH order.
Currently working on 70+ orders. More and more coming in everyday.
I also work full time at a dog daycare/boarding facility and as their dog trainer. The upcoming weeks I will be working about 50+ hours out of the home. Less time behind the sewing machine. :( Due to this I may even have to stop taking orders before October 3rd. If you were thinking of ordering please do so soon. Sorry for any inconvenience.

This morning Fresa fought her final battle with cancer and assessed to the Rainbow Bridge. She was a feisty pup with a lust for life. We never could have dreamed that she would have siblings and a vast amount of pup pals. Dressing up, attending parties, modeling, running, food, and hunting rodents were some of her favorite things. She was more than a loving dog. She was our baby. We'll miss you more than you know Fresa. We love you! Be free and run your little heart out.

As always an amazing job! Lilo and stitch costumes this year ❤
Fred isn't so sure about all this... But we think he looks great! Thanks April! 🎃
Mylo and Opie love their sweaters from The California Chi. They are so perfectly snuggly and stylish. These came in handy for camping this past summer. (Opie is wearing a custom designed Utah Grizzlies Sweater. Mylo is wearing a custom made sweater, picked before we even had Mylo!, yet it matches him perfectly.)
We were on the news this morning with some cool tips for keeping your pets safe tonight! Check us out! :D Costumes were handmade by our very own employee, April, of The California Chi!
Thank you so much for the fantastic costumes April Prado!! You did an amazing job!! ☺
I have a cairn terrier who measures 13 inches in the neck and 20 inches in the chest. Since that's at the higher end of the range for small, would a small size still work? Thanks.
Harry loves his new PJ's you made him.
Cheeto in one of your outfits. Our girls love them. Thank u!!!
