Gifting clothes to your near ones is a difficult task. If you must gift clothes this season, there’s one gift on your list who’s sure to look great in any outfit you buy him. He’ll wear your gift with his head held high and tail wagging with pride and appreciation. That’s right, your dog or your best friend’s dog. It’s so easy that you will guess why you didn’t think of it before. Dog’s love any kind of attention from you.
Dog clothes shopping for are a lot like shopping clothes for babies. Unless you’re going for practicality, cuteness is what counts. And that is done easily, given that any dog wearing clothes looks pretty cute. Choices in dog clothes range from winter sweaters to football jerseys and summer tees. You can get a set of sweet sleep pajamas for bedtime or a terry robe for after bath. There’s even an entire line of Happy tails Cowboy or Cowgirl costume for dogs, complete with leather cap and collar. Dog costumes made for parties and holidays are simply too cute for words.
If you really want your gift to be a hit with admirers, accessorize. These include a designer dog collar and maybe a cool pair of sunglasses, they make them now for dogs. Also on the list are Dog necklaces and Dog hats. Got a mischievous sense of humor? Making the baby look silly might be a no-no, but its pretty fun when it comes to dressing up a dog. There are some really creative art work for doggie costumes out there that are good for a laugh. There are really only a couple of rules you’ll need to keep in mind when shopping for dog clothes:
One is that if the dog in question is an avid chewer, you should avoid buying him anything tempting. Shiny buttons, fringe, and feathers are examples that come to mind. An object that can easily be chewed off and swallowed is a choking hazard and can get stuck in the dog’s digestive tract. The second is that any dog, no matter how tolerant, will be more comfortable wearing clothes that fit. Proper fit typically requires measuring from the dog’s collar to the base of her tail for length. Most dog clothes girth can be adjusted with Velcro tabs, but could still be an issue with a barrel-chested breed such as a bulldog. Measurements are generally in inches.
Now, if you’re shopping for your own dog, you’re all set. But if you’re buying clothes for someone else’s dog, I’ve got a few more tips to share with you. Surveys conducted on the subject of gift preferences of men and women have shown that men prefer gifts that are more playful or practical. So, if the dog’s owner is male this might translate into a doggie Happy Tails Cowboy & Cowgirl Costume, a funny costume, or a reflective hunting vest. Women, on the other hand, generally prefer gifts that are beautiful, memorable, and have a personal touch. It shouldn’t be hard to find an item of clothing for a woman’s dog that’s either beautiful or memorable or both, and it will of course be personal! These dog clothes are available online at right price right now.
