Dog Clothes – Useful or Vanity?
So is dressing up your dog just something that you like to do, is it just vanity on your part? Or is there a real benefit to your dog? It all depends!! You can dress your dog up for fun, most dogs don’t mind being the center of attention but it can be beneficial too.
Do you let members of your family run around in public with no clothes on?? If you’re not dressing your dog then you do!! Your dog is not just an animal. Your dog is not just a pet. Your dog is a bona FIDO member of the family ? So of course your dog needs to dress the part. This is not as big a problem as it used to be. You no longer have to put up with that crochet sweater that Granny made for your dog. These days you can find many online boutiques and online stores that have everything for the sophisticated canine!!
Designer Dog Clothes – All the Rage
You can get ‘designer’ labels for your dog to make him feel like a million dollars, (and probably cost that too). Its just like people wear! Many celebrities always have their dogs dressed in the latest doggie fashion. A practice that Paris Hilton with Tinkerbell has raised to an art form, or so it seems!
A Dog Coat can be a very useful item of clothing for your dog. There are dog coats that can keep your dog warm in the cold weather or dry in the wet weather. Dog clothes can also protect your dog from infections in the same way that our clothes protect us. A useful side effect of dog clothes is keeping him clean which may be especially useful after a romp in the park on a wet winter’s day. Take the coat off after it’s dirty and then let your clean(ish) dog into the car will help keep the worst off your car. Dog coats come in many different styles and colors so pick a coat that best fits its use and your dog’s personality. And of course what dog would be seen out without the matching doggie hat??
It doesn’t just end at coats and sweaters for your dog. There are a whole range of clothes and items that make your dog look smarter and are functional too. Dog t-shirts and dog sunglasses look cute and help protect your dog. The sunglasses can protect him from UVA and UVB rays while the t-shirt helps protect his skin. Dogs can develop skin cancer the same way that we can, with exposure to the sun, and skin cancer is one of the main cancers in dogs.
