What Do You Mean My Dog is Naked??

Aug 18, 2007
Your dog is not just a pet. Your dog is not just an animal. Your dog is a bona FIDO member of the family! So of course your dog needs to dress the part; right? Well thanks to the internet and the many online boutiques you can dress your dog for every occasion from the comfort of your own home. No more "granny knitted" sweaters for your sophisticated canine!! Dog clothes are an extension of your love for them, treating them like members of the family.

Dog Coats

But is dressing up your dog just something that you like to do? Is there any benefit to your dog? It all depends!! A Dog Coat can be a very useful item of clothing for your dog. It can keep him warm in the cold weather, dry in the wet weather, and can protect him from infections in the same way that our clothes protect us. It can also keep him clean which may be especially useful after a romp in the park on a wet winters day. Take the coat off after it's dirty and let your clean(ish) dog into the car helps keep the car cleaner. Dog coats come in many different styles and colors so pick the coats appropriate for their use. And of course what dog would be seen out without the matching doggie hat??

Apart from coats and sweaters, other useful dog clothing items include dog t-shirts and dog sunglasses. These can look cute but they do also serve to help protect your pet. The sunglasses can protect him from UVA and UVB rays, and the t-shirt helps protect his skin. Dogs can develop skin cancer the same way that people can, and it is one of the main cancers in dogs. And you thought it was just to make Fido look cute!! Suitable dog clothes can make your pet happy and healthy resulting in less trips to the vet and additional savings in money and time. Dogs that have had medical treatments that result in the loss of fur will often need at least some protection from the weather until their fur grows back.

Designer Clothes

Just like people wear, you can get designer labels for your dog to make him feel like a million dollars, (and probably cost that too). Many celebrities always have their dogs dressed in the latest doggie fashion. A practice that Paris Hilton and Tinkerbell have raised to an art form, or so it seems! There are designer dog sweaters, name brand outfits in denim and leather, and even emblems from such greats as Harley Davidson.

As you can see, getting clothing for your dog is not just vanity on your part, although it is fun dressing up your dog. It can also play a vital role in keeping your dog healthy and happy. And if you do get the urge to step out on the wild side, get your dog some formal wear or a great costume for Halloween. Go on have fun and get your dog some great clothing today!! Just make sure the outfit you are choosing for your dogs party costume is fire resistant to all the holiday candles.
