Some people question whether they should even dress the dog. I believe that each dog is different. You should let your pup decide if clothes are for them. Some do not tolerate wearing clothes. As long as you are gentle while dressing them, they should tolerate this just fine. It’s always best to choose something a little oversized. When dressing them it is easier. You want to start by putting the shirt over the neck first and then the legs second. Some dogs will be more tolerant than others.
There are many types of clothes in the market. One of the best articles of clothing to start within the beginning would be a simple stretchy t-shirt. Another beginning item could possibly be a sweater depending on the weather and the time of year. T-shirts and light dresses are best for the summer. You would not want to overheat your dog in the summer heat by dressing them too warm. In the winter and colder months of the year, sweaters, hoodies, and coats are a great choice as well.
Dog fashion has definitely evolved over the years to now include many specialty items as well. If your dog is extremely fussy and is intolerant of wearing clothes then try a fashion harness. you can always check out the many different harnesses available. There are many fun colors, patterns, and styles available. We have included harnesses a lot of times in the Tiny Tails Box as the fashion item for the month. Many customers and dogs alike love going with this option. The designer harness provides a functional piece of fashion that is not only cute but useful. This is a way to keep your pup looking sharp but not making them too uncomfortable with clothes.
I know that when you own your very first small or toy breed dog it is only natural to want them to look their very best. Sometimes the pup may not be onboard. Another way to introduce fashion to your new pup is by various bandanas. This is a very trendy look but less cumbersome for the dog. This still allows for a fashion statement but without the feeling of being too trapped in an outfit. This may be a way to initially introduce your new pup into the fashion scene. Bandanas come in various patterns and styles so you and your pup will be able to make a statement with a colorful bandana.
Be sure to fit them properly in any form of fashion wear that you chose. They can get their legs hung up on shirts and collars if they are not fit properly. The clothing needs to be snug enough so when they are walking they do not get hung up with their legs. Always monitor your dog when you introduce them to a new piece of wardrobe and make sure that they are not rubbing too tightly in the underarms and that they are able to move freely in the clothing. Watch for the body language as well. It may take a few minutes for the clothes for them to get adjusted to the clothing as they move, walk, and run in their new outfit. There are so many choices on the market today for clothing for dogs and fashion for dogs.
