Dress Up Tips For Your Cute Chihuahua Puppies

May 22, 2008
Most people dress up their cute Chihuahua puppies for the reason of following the latest fashion trends, seeking to bring out an even greater element of cuteness from their Chihuahua puppies. Unknown to most however, dressing up your Chihuahua puppies in the latest fashion trends is also beneficial in protecting them against the weather. With thin coats of hair, even for the Long-haired Chihuahua, Chihuahua puppies have little protection against cold weather which leaves them vulnerable to all sorts of illnesses. In dressing up your Chihuahua puppy, it is important to place careful consideration for the local climate and weather when making such decisions.

Priority must be given to comfort over style when choosing a suitable outfit for your Chihuahua puppy. While most would agree that a dress would look adorable for a Chihuahua puppy, it serves little purpose in protecting your little pooch from the harsh cold of winter. Also, it is important to check that your Chihuahua puppy is not allergic to outfits made from particular fabrics. Always allow your Chihuahua puppy to try on a new outfit for a short period of time in order to determine if your little pooch is allergic to that particular fabric. Observe signs of rash, irritation or whining. If such signs are visible, then perhaps it would be a good idea to change to another outfit of choice rather than the one chosen.

Choice of material is an important factor and consideration should be given to the local climate when choosing an outfit. Cotton is a good choice of fabric for an outfit in places with milder temperature. In areas with a colder climate, wool would be a better choice to keep your Chihuahua puppy warm, especially during winter. Accessories such as paw boots should also be worn to protect your Chihuahua puppy's paws against snow. Careless selection of clothes would often lead to discomfort, and in certain cases, detrimental results such as overheating in instances where thick Chihuahua clothing is worn in countries with warm temperatures.

Common choices of Chihuahua clothing include T-shirts, sweaters, hoodies and raincoats. Most T-shirts are made from lightweight materials such as cotton and allow protection against cold and the sun in countries with milder temperatures. In countries with cooler temperatures, sweaters, hoodies and raincoats provide greater protection against the weather elements by keeping your Chihuahua puppy warm in the cold of winter. It would also be a good idea to place reflective stickers on the clothes of your Chihuahua puppy to increase their visibility to motorists at night when walking them. This would decrease the chances of an accident occurring should your Chihuahua puppy stray from the sidewalk onto the road. Ideally, the choice of clothing and accessories to be worn should reflect the personality and gender of your Chihuahua puppy. Accessories such as semi-precious stones and glitter on outfits would obviously suit a female Chihuahua puppy better than a male puppy.

Comfort and practicality should always rank on top of the priority where Chihuahua dressing is concerned. Such consideration is the key to a healthy, happy Chihuahua puppy.
