Why clothes?: Animals, especially dogs, wear clothing for many reasons. The main reasons of course being to beat the winter chill as well as to be the cutest, most fashionable dog in the neighborhood. Clothes are a wonderful way to show of your doggies best features and personality, as well as keeping him or her warm. A mix of fashion and practicality. What on earth is cuter than a Chihuahua with a diamond necklace and pink Crochet Dog Sweater? Dressing dogs to be in-tune with the latest fashion crazes is growing more and more in popularity.
Dressed for the occasion: Occasion and event dressing is very in now. For example, dressing your little friend in green and red for Christmas or Red and White for Valentines Day. Clothes can also be used as insulation after grooming sessions where the protective layer of pelt is washed, clipped or shaven or after surgery or medication that caused hair loss. The clothing will help the hair grow back much quicker. In intense warm weather conditions a light shirt is excellent protection from harmful UV rays. Clothing can act as an barrier where the dog has a skin condition to reduce tampering and scratching the area.
Choosing a sweater: When deciding on a sweater for Fifi or Boss make sure that the sweater suit's the animal in terms of breed and size. Do not squeeze the dog into super small Dog Clothing meant for a Chihuahua if it is a Doberman.
Gender consideration: Remember to consider your dogs' gender when buying clothes. Just as male and female bodies differ so do those of bitches and male dogs. Under exposure of the stomach area for a male and over expose for female will cause discomfort, irritability and often a plain mess.
Easy to make: An array of patterns are available online which can be scaled to fit your dog. Fleece material is recommended. However if you decide to knit a sweater instead of sewing, use good quality wool, very stretchy wool, as well as US size 19 needles.
Not everyone's cup of tea: Wearing clothes is not every dog's cup of tea. It is definitely not something that comes natural as with humans. However in some instances the animals have no choice other than to get used to the layer of clothing as a second skin. For example, in intensely cold countries in Europe the animals either wear the insulated clothing or die. Even the slightest exposure to the cold should be avoided. A dog sweater, coat and boots are a must-have for any wardrobe. Training can start from two months.
Suppliers: The majority of animal specialty stores and pet shops stock and supply clothes. shopping online for Dog Sweaters is another great option . The greatest and fussiest fashionista will have a wide variety of couture to select from no matter the taste.
Designer or do-it yourself: You don't have to be a star to have a well-dressed pooch. Many companies that specialize in dog products have quality dog clothes ready made for you. Also, an old men's sock or sweater can be revamped into something lovely and traditional in two ticks. However if you have the budget a couple of famous designers have added dog couture to their ranges. Just remember – expensive does not mean better, especially when it comes to dog sweaters.
