Like Dressing up your Dog? Here are few things to keep in mind

Dressing up dogs can be a fun experience for dog owners. We dress up our dogs to shower them with some extra love and attention, and to make them part of our life’s special events and celebrations. As responsible pet parents, it’s important that we keep certain things in mind while dressing up our four-legged kids, in order to ensure their safety, and avoid any untoward experiences.

So, before you shop for some clothes, shoes and accessories for your dog, take note of these important things:

Comfort before Style

It’s good to be stylish, but not at the expense of being comfortable. Make sure your dog’s clothes and shoes are well-fitted and not too tight or loose. Keep your dog’s size and height under consideration while purchasing new stuff. See not just how your dog looks in his new clothes, but also how he feels in it. If your pooch is acting irritated or finding it difficult to move around freely in a new dress, then it’s perhaps not quite comfortable for him.

Never ignore Safety

You might like those long dresses and big cowboy hats worn by dogs while walking the ramp in fashion shows, but before you consider the idea of getting your pooch a similar dress or hat on his next birthday, make sure that it’s a good fit for him and does not hinder  his ability to see, hear, walk or breathe, in any way.

Dress up for the Season

Agreed, your dog looks super-cute in his new coat, but you can’t expect him to be comfortable in that thick jacket, when it’s sunny and sweaty outside. It’s important to dress up your dog according to the season, and opt for tees and dresses, instead of jackets and sweaters, when the weather is on the warmer side.

Let the clothes do the barking

“What you wear says a lot about you”- the statement is true for our dogs as much as it is for us. Is your dog a sporty, outgoing kind or  a naughty, life of the party type? Choose clothes that reflect your pooch’s personality and let him just be himself 🙂

Don’t Overdo

Do not overdo on the dressing. Keep it simple. A pretty collar or a cute tee can go a long way in making your pooch look smart and stylish.

Respect your dog’s preferences

Lastly, don’t force anything on your dog. If he does not like wearing clothes and expresses discomfort by chewing on them and wiggling out of them, then try opting for collars, shoes or other accessories to dress him up.
