Archive for Dog Clothes

The same way people want to look their best and stand out from the crowd, many dog owners love to shop for designer clothes for their dogs. And there are plenty of great designers making clothes for dogs today. Some specialize in canine designs while some of the designers usually make clothes for humans and have added canine collections because they know how important dogs are to their clientele. Here are a few designers who have clothing for dogs.

Gucci

For real couture dog accessories, you can’t get much more haute than Gucci. While Gucci doesn’t make dog clothing, they do make pet carriers, elegant (even extravagant) collars and leashes, and charms. The Gucci design is recognizable almost anywhere you go with your dog.http://www.gucci.com/us/category/u/pet#look4163lookA113

 

You can buy dog clothing that features a play on the Gucci design – usually with bones or other dog-related images – but don’t confuse it with the real thing.

 

As you might expect, carriers and accessories from Gucci are rather pricey.

 

Von Dutch Dog Clothes

Von Dutch is a Los Angeles-based fashion label with a rock n’ roll attitude rooted in “Kustom Kulture.” Von Dutch clothing was founded in 1990 and they make t-shirts, hats, and more for men and women. They have also crossed over to make other products, including children’s wear, footwear, a jewelry line, a “kustom” motorcycle company, and even a die-cast miniatures toy line. They also make Von Dutch Dog Clothes.

 

Christian Audigier/Ed Hardy

Christian Audigier is the creator of Ed Hardy. These clothes feature rock n’ roll inspired t-shirts for dogs. They include dog collars, carriers, and other accessories.

 

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren is a world famous designer of men’s and women’s clothes. His most famous brand is probably the sporty chic Polo Ralph Lauren. The company has extended their Polo brand into the world of pet fashions with clothes like the Ralph Lauren Classic Dog Polo, Ralph Lauren Dual Match Polo, Ralph Lauren Sporty Puffer Vest, and Ralph Lauren Team Polo, just to name a few. They even have hoodies, trenchcoats, and classic turtlenecks for dogs. And the clothes come in some of the same favorite Polo colors people love.

 

Other designers who feature dog clothing and accessories as part of their lines include Burberry, Martha Stewart, Louis Vuitton, Paris Hilton, and Robert Cavalli. You can find other designers and some expensive accessories for your dog at stores like Barney’s New York

The clothes you choose for your dog say a lot about him – and about you. How do you want to present yourself and your dog to the world? Are you rock ‘n roll chic? Fun-loving and free-spirited? Elegant and traditional? Fortunately, there are all kinds of designers and clothes so you can choose the look you want for your dog and you can vary the mood.

No matter what kind of clothing or costume you buy for your dog, or how much money you spend, it won’t look good unless you buy the right size. But how are you supposed to know your dog’s size? Especially when it comes to a costume? Afterall, if you’re buying a hotdog costume for your dog, who knows what size hotdog will fit your dog, right?

 

Measuring Your Dog

No matter what kind of clothes or costume you are thinking of buying, you usually need the same basic measurements from of your dog: the neck, chest, ribcage, and body length. The easiest way to measure your dog is with a measuring tape – the same kind that dressmakers use. You can find them at the drugstore or sometimes in the grocery store with the sewing things. If you don’t have a measuring tape you can also use a tape measure such as you would use for measuring a home project. As a last resort you can take a piece of string and use it to get your dog’s measurements and then use a ruler to measure the string.

You should allow plenty of space around the neck so the clothes or costume won’t be too tight. Then measure the other areas. Measure the chest from side to side at the wides points. Measure your dog’s ribcage just behind the elbows. To measure your dog’s body length you can measure from the back of your dog’s neck, where the neck joins the back, to the root of the tail – where the tail rises up from the body.

Buy Larger When In Doubt

Once you have all the measurements you can compare them with the sizes available for the clothing or costume you are considering. If there is any conflict in the measurements, you should always choose a larger size. For example, if your dog’s chest and body length suggest he should have a medium size costume, but his neck is larger, you should get the larger sized costume. If the clothes or costume are too small for your dog in any way, he may rip them or tear them either accidentally or by trying to make himself more comfortable. Always go larger if you have any doubts.

You should also keep in mind that it’s possible some clothes and costumes can shrink a little when you wash them. It can also be hard to predict how some clothes and costumes are cut or made. If your dog is borderline between small and medium or medium and large, getting the larger size will give him plenty of room in case the outfit runs small. You can always take the outfit in a little if necessary.

Accessories

When it comes to accessories like bows, hats, and other things, you can usually rely on the sizes given. Most of these items fit directly on your dog so there is less variation in how they are made for dogs.

If you’re buying a costume for your dog that is made of a stretch material, then it’s not as important to get bigger sizes since the costume is more forgiving. However, you should always keep your dog’s comfort in mind. Don’t try to wedge him into a tight costume or he’ll be uncomfortable.

Masks

Dogs often don’t appreciate masks and other accessories that go over their faces, even when they fit well, so if you need your dog to wear a mask for a photo, it’s a good idea to get the picture snapped quickly and then do away with the mask or face gear if your dog doesn’t like it.

Buy Early

Clothes for dogs can be found online and in pet stores. Costumes tend to be more seasonal, especially for holidays like Halloween. If you’re planning to have your dog wear a Halloween or other costume, it’s a good idea to buy the costume ahead of time and let your dog try it on so you can make sure it fits properly.

What better way to top off a fashionable ensemble than with the perfect hair accessory? Bows, barrettes, and hats are very popular items with dog owners and you can find them anyplace you buy dog clothing. If you use a groomer for your dog you can probably ask your groomer about bows and barrettes, too. He or she may be able to tell you good places to purchase them or they may have some for sale in their shop.

Bows

Bows for dogs are usually rather small so we don’t usually use the same bows that are made for people – they’re too large and heavy. Bows can range from simple little grosgrain bows to very elaborate pieces with multiple layers or even with rhinestones or other things to make them stand out. And, of course, they can come in any color or kind of ribbon or fabric. If you can’t find what you want in a store or online, you can certainly make your own bows. Bows come in different sizes but most of them are about 3/8 or 5/8 inch wide. Some people like to put a bow in the center of their dog’s head to hold the topknot of hair; and other people like to put a bow on each ear. It’s up to you and your dog, and the outfit your dog is wearing.  Both male and female dogs wear bows.

 

Generally speaking, you can’t really tie a bow into your dog’s hair. It will slide out. You need a small rubber band to hold the hair and then you can tie the bow around it.

 

Barrettes

Barrettes are very similar to dog bows. In some cases you can use a barrette to secure a bow in your dog’s hair. Barrettes often allow you to use other things besides ribbon when you want to put something in your dog’s hair, such as little artificial flowers or pieces of rhinestone jewelry or other items. They lie flatter than bows.

 

Hats

Hats for dogs are usually chosen with a particular outfit or occasion in mind. Many dog owners like for their dogs to wear baseball caps or other team hats, too. If you have rain gear for your dog, some owners like to add a rain hat to keep their dog’s head from getting wet. If your dog has a beautiful party dress, some owners will add a matching hat. Party hats are also very popular – let your dog celebrate New Year’s Eve with a sparkly chapeau! And don’t forget birthday hats. And how could we forget St. Patrick’s Day?

There are really hats for all occasions and dogs look adorable when they wear hats so get creative and have fun with your dog’s head gear.

If you want to take things a step further, some owners even enjoy adding a wig to their dog’s look. It’s just for fun and wigs go great with hats. Wigs for dogs are lots of fun when your dog is dressed up for special occasions like Halloween

Have you ever wondered what the well-dressed dog wears to bed? Sure, some dogs sleep au naturel in their fur, but some owners provide their dogs with fashionable night clothes. You can find pajamas, nightgowns, night shirts, robes, and a host of other bedtime clothing for your dog.

 

Pajamas

Doggy pajamas can range from styles that look like baby clothes to something a fashionista dog would wear. They can be made of flannel, fleece, and other soft materials for warmth and sometimes even come in “one-sies” or body suit styles to keep your dog warm all over his body while he sleeps. http://tinyurl.com/blk6uym Other pajamas are made of lighter material and would be good for summer wear. Pajamas come in all colors and styles so you might like to have several pajama outfits for your dog. They may feature cute applique images or other designs. More feminine pajamas can include ruffles and lace. http://tinyurl.com/c66wsk7

 

Nightgowns and night shirts

Nightgowns and night shirts for dogs usually look a little more “romantic” in style than pajamas. They have an old-fashioned appearance. The nightgowns are usually for female dogs and the night shirts are for male dogs. They can be made of various materials but often include some kind of poly/cotton blend to make them easy to wash. They often feature bows, rosettes, or embroidery and they are more elaborate in appearance than pajamas.

 

Robes

Yes, they even make robes for dogs. They are often made of a a heavier terry material so they will soak up water after you bathe your dog, but you can also wrap your dog up in a robe on cold nights to help him stay warm. http://tinyurl.com/c3vrz2z In some cases robes can even be customized so you can add your dog’s name to them. Very spiffy!

 

Tees

You can also put your dog in a tee or a thermal tee to keep him cozy while he sleeps. Tees come in all colors and are easy to find at most pet supply stores and online. Many of them have cute designs. Thermal tees are made to keep your doggy warm during the night and they typically come in fun colors and designs. http://tinyurl.com/cbfan44

 

Other nighttime accessories

Many places that sell night clothes for dogs will also sell dog beds, towels, and even collars, leashes, and harnesses that are made to match the clothes. You can sometimes find a clothing theme or color scheme that is used for dresses, hair bows, collars, leashes, and nighttime clothes. This makes it very easy to mix and match your dog’s clothes and other accessories. Plus, you can continue to add pieces as you find them which is nice for you and your dog. In some cases, you can even find toys that match your dog’s clothes.

 

Most night clothes for dogs come in sizes from x-small to x-large but you may need to measure your dog. Take measurements from the base of your dog’s neck to the root of the tail; around the ribcage right behind the elbows; and across the chest at the widest points. These measurements will usually give you the information you need to figure out what size to get.

 

Along with the basic items most dogs need, such as collars and leashes, many dogs need other accessories such as rain gear and booties. This is particularly true if you and your dog live in the city and you have to walk your dog in inclement weather.

Rain gear

Dog rain gear can be simple and slicker-style, or it can be quite elaborate. In many cases the rain gear is made of bright colors to help your dog be easily seen on a a gray day, so colors include yellow, orange, and pink. If the gear comes in darker colors you should make sure it has reflective strips to help your dog be seen in low light. Slickers and jackets can range from sizes that barely reach down to your dog’s stomach (a soft shell style) to some that come down almost to the ground. Most gear fits over the dog’s head and then buckles around the dog’s waist.

While some gear only includes the slicker or rain jacket, other rain gear will also have available a hat for the dog. Some gear will even have available rain boots. Just remember that the more rain gear you have for your dog, the longer if will take to put it on and take it off when you go outside.

Fabrics are usually water-resistant materials, just as they are with human rain coats.

Shoes and booties

Urban dogs can also need shoes and booties for walking on pavement. This is especially true on hot summer days and when the sidewalks are icy. Booties can help protect your dog’s paws on hot pavement in the summer, especially when it’s extremely hot. In the winter time, when sidewalks are icy, the ice is one problem, but the de-icing chemicals can also hurt your dog’s paws, especially if he goes home and licks them off his paws. Ingesting these chemicals can make your dog sick. Snow and ice can also lead to chapped and cracked paws. So, booties can be a big help in the city.

As you might guess, booties come in different styles and sizes. They generally come in sizes ranging from x-small to x-large. You can find them in fashion styles and in very sturdy styles.

Even if you don’t live in the city, booties can be helpful for dogs. If you hike a lot with your dog, especially over rough ground, booties can protect your dog’s paws. If you have an elderly dog who has trouble standing and walking, a pair of booties with soles that grip well can help your dog remain mobile.

Bandanas

You can find bandanas many places. They don’t have to be specifically made for dogs. Your dog can wear one of your bandanas. But there are lots of bandanas made just for dogs and some of them have fun sayings on them or cute artwork that applies to dogs. You can find them at pet supply stores or online. Even some of the companies that make designer clothes for dogs make matching bandanas. They’re fun and functional at the same time. You never know when you might need to use your dog’s bandana for something practical like covering a wound or soaking up some cool water when he’s hot. It’s a good idea to keep several bandanas for your dog so he always has some that are clean and ready to use.

Costumes For Dogs

For many dogs, the only time they have the opportunity to wear doggy clothes comes when they wear costumes for a special occasion like Halloween. But you can find costumes for dogs for many occasions such as Valentine’s Day, Christmas, the 4th of July, parties, and even for weddings – whether a doggy wedding or for your own wedding. Dogs always look wonderful in costumes.

Halloween

Most Halloween costumes for dogs are whimsical or humorous – perhaps because there’s something innately humorous about seeing a dog dressed up like another animal or some other object. Or maybe it’s because they just look so darn cute. http://tinyurl.com/c4vxfkt Most dogs accept wearing a Halloween costume with good grace, especially if it’s something like a body suit. If the costume has wings or other appendages, you should monitor it carefully to make sure it doesn’t poke the dog or frighten him. If it crinkles or makes some kind of noise when the dog walks, be sure to stay close by so your dog doesn’t become frightened. And be sure that you don’t let your dog eat the costume!

Christmas

Costumes for Christmas range from Santa and elf costumes, complete with beards and coats made of red velvet, to fancier outfits for Christmas parties. Many dog owners dress up their dogs around the holidays so they can take them to parties. If you do take your dog to a party keep in mind that your dog can only stay on his best behavior for so long. He still needs to go outside to potty and he will need water to drink during the party. He may also need a quiet place to get away from people at some point. Make sure that you don’t let your dog eat Christmas candy, chocolate or other sweets when he’s at a party. This is true for Valentine’s Day, too

4th of July

Uncle Sam costumes are popular for dogs around Independence Day. Many owners like to take their dogs to parades and outdoor events at this summer holiday. Remember that some dogs are afraid of the noise from fireworks so your dog might prefer to stay home at night with the TV on loud so the noise will be muffled.

Weddings and parties

If you are attending a wedding or formal party with your dog dressed up, try to choose your dog’s outfit ahead of time so you won’t be rushed. This will also allow you to find something else or make any changes if the outfit doesn’t fit or you change your mind. If you need to find some accessories to go with the outfit, you’ll also have plenty of time to track them down. Don’t scoff, but some owners plan weddings for their dogs. There are some gorgeous doggy wedding dresses available. http://tinyurl.com/ckj4pkb You might even need some doggy bridesmaid dresses and clothes for the groom. These things take planning! So give yourself plenty of time to find the clothes and accessories your dog needs.

Dog costumes are fun for both you and your dog. You don’t have to limit costumes to Halloween. Your dog can wear a wonderful costume for lots of great occasions.

While dogs and their haircuts get most of the attention at dog shows, there is quite a bit of dog fashion on display at most shows. Even such wash ‘n wear dogs as Pointers and other shorthaired breeds can display some bling in and out of the ring. Show fashions for dogs include such items as collars, leads, grooming coats, and snoods, to name just a few things.

 

Collars and leads

Gone are the days when show dogs would wear simple Resco show leads or a chain link collar and nylon lead. Sure, there are still plenty of handlers who use these traditional leads at shows but you’re just as likely to see a dog sporting something much fancier in the ring. Kangaroo leather leads are popular today with some handlers because of their softness and pliability. Other handlers like something a little showier. They choose colored, braided show leads with beads, usually custom-made . The colors are often chosen to emphasize their dog’s coloring. Such leads can be expensive but when you have a special dog you want to call attention to him or her.

 

Grooming coats

Another item you often see at dog shows, especially if you wander around the grooming area, is a grooming coat or jacket. (This doesn’t refer to the groomer’s jacket worn by the handlers, though they wear them, too.) Grooming coats for dogs are often placed on a dog after a bath to help the hair dry flat or to keep the hair in place before the show. They can come in a variety of materials depending on the kind you want for your dog, the weather, and other factors, but lycra coats made of swimsuit material are very popular. The lycra swimsuit coats typically have a narrow opening for the head to keep the hair on the neck smooth. The material around the body is loose and open so the handler has to pin it in place. These suits come in a variety of colors and prints. Many people who sew make them and sell them so if you would like to buy one for your dog you can often ask around and find out who is making them or find someone online who makes them. The coats are especially useful for longhaired dogs.

 

Grooming coats are removed once the dog arrives at the show so the handler can apply some last minute touches prior to going in the ring.

 

Snoods

Snoods look something like shower caps for dogs. They are cloth hoods that fit around a dog’s head and especially the ears of longhaired dogs. Owners use them to keep long ears out of food, though some people keep the snood on the dog at other times besides meal time. They can be made out of any lightweight material and they have elastic sewn around the edges to hold them in place. Dogs usually learn to put up with them, though most owners have to keep putting them back on when they come off. Along with keeping the dog’s ears out of his food, the purpose of the snood is to keep the ears clean and keep the long ear hair from breaking off. Think of them as turbans for dogs. As you can imagine, snoods come in all kinds of colors and prints.

 

Along with these fashions, there are many other things used for grooming and showing dogs that can come in a variety of colors and styles. Brushes and other grooming accessories can come in different colors is you would like to have your tools match your dog’s things. Even shears come in pink, blue, and other colors if you would like to invest in colors. Dog shows can be as fashionable as you would like to make them.

Why Your Dog Needs A Waterproof Coat This Spring

For many, especially those new to dog ownership, dog coats might seem like a bit of a silly affectation, a fashion accessory bought only for pampered pooches whose ‘mummy and daddy’ have forgotten they have a dog and not a baby and who have more money than sense. However, the surprising truth of it is that there are several very sensible explanations why even the most practical, no-nonsense pet owners choose to wrap their dogs up in the snug warmth of a waterproof dog coat. It’s not really a matter of feeling cold yourself so assuming your dog must be too; there are in fact many practical advantages to dressing your pet in a waterproof canine coat before you take him or her outside in this unpredictable spring weather. This article considers a few of the main benefits.


Keep the House Thoroughly Clean and Dried out
Waterproof canine coats have one primary purpose – to keep your dog’s own natural coat dry. Your pet may not really mind getting wet whenever you take him for a romp out on a showery spring day, but once he’s back inside he’ll be getting all that muddy dampness all over your home. Chances tend to be good that he’ll give that soaking wet coat a lovely great big shake in the center of your family room, splattering all over your clean sofas or rolling around on your carpet. The alternative though is of course keeping him outside in the garage or boot room until his coat is actually dry.

The easiest method to avoid the actual wet tremble, however – and also the accompanying inimitable doggy smell which settles in to your upholstery – would be to cover their fur with a nice, water-resistant cover. It might appear like an extremely selfish reason for making your pet to withstand a coat, but think about the alternative – shutting the poor pup out in the garage till he dries off naturally? In any case, a waterproof dog coat actually benefits the dog himself even more than it helps you out.
Health Advantages of Waterproof Canine Coats
Dogs are prone to catching a chill, and can become very uncomfortable, right through to their bones, if they are left cold and damp for long periods. While nobody “catches cold” from being out in the actual rain, getting wet, cold and soggy can really mess up your dog’s routine, and make them feel really fed-up. A dog’s hair takes a lot longer to dried out than the skin, so if he gets soaked through, he’ll end up being cold, wet as well as miserable for a long time.
Older dogs who suffer from achy joints and joint disease may benefit especially from a good, warm, water-resistant coat in the windy and often incredibly wet spring weather. A waterproof coat can help keep the actual damp from settling within and making him much more uncomfortable. In the event that your dog is a hairless breed, or if you keep him or her carefully clipped, opt for a weatherproof, warm coat since their natural defences from the cold as well as wet are somewhat impaired through the clipping. Small dogs will also be excellent candidates to be kept warm and dry inside a dog coat because their own small bodies often get chilled faster than the bodies of bigger dogs.

Additional Benefits Of Dog Coats
Some kinds of coats provide particular advantages under particular conditions. Should you walk your pet at evening, for instance, a reflective water-resistant dog coat might help keep him or her – and also you – safer by increasing his visibility to passing cars and traffic. A coat may also reduce the possibility of infestation by unwanted guests, such as fleas or ticks, which are often picked up while out walking.
Whether you’re motivated by protecting your sofa, keeping your dog safe and warm, or simply because you think your fluffy best friend will look adorable in a little coat (or all of the above!), you can be sure to find a waterproof dog coat to fit your needs. These things are becoming increasingly popular and you’ll find them in all shapes, sizes and colours to buy online or in specialist shops. Shop around and you’ll soon find the warmest (or cutest) coat for your canine companion.

Pet Boots and Shoes

Why dogs need pet boots and shoes
In the winter time, especially in snowy areas, cities often put down chemical de-icers as well as salt on pavement. If you walk your dog on this pavement, his paws will become covered with this salt and chemicals. This causes problems for many dogs. Their paws can chafe and crack. You can use emollients on their paws to help them heal. You can also use paw wax to help toughen the paws. And you need to wash your dog’s paws when he walks on pavements where these chemicals are found. Do not let your dog lick his paws after he has been walking on pavement in the winter until they have been washed. These chemicals can be dangerous for your dog.

You can also put pet boots or shoes on your dog when you walk him so you can keep his paws free of these chemicals. Boots and shoes will keep the salt and chemicals off your dog’s paws so they won’t crack and they will prevent your dog from ingesting the chemicals.

In the summer, dogs who walk on hot pavement can appreciate wearing boots or shoes to keep their paws from getting too hot. Rain boots can also be a good idea if you want to keep your dog’s paws dry.

Senior dogs with arthritis or other mobility problems can often have trouble walking because they can’t get enough traction on the floor. This is especially true if you have hardwood floors. If you put pet boots or shoes on your dog’s paws, especially on his rear paws, it will often provide the traction he needs so he can walk again.

Some hunting dogs wear boots or shoes if they will be hunting in tough terrain that could injure their paws.

Of course, there are many boots and shoes that are made for fashion reasons. You can always buy them for your dog just because they look good.

Choosing boots and shoes
Pet boots and shoes usually come in small, medium, and large sizes. You should choose the size that’s appropriate for your dog. Some boots and shoes have Gore-tex or other gripping soles. These boots and shoes would be especially good for dogs that need good traction.

There are several good brands of dog boots and shoes. You can find them online or in pet stores. Brands include Guardian Gear, UltraPaws, and Muttluks. Some dog boots and shoes come in four-packs and some come in two-packs. Boots and shoes tend to be rather expensive but they do last a while.

Your dog may have trouble walking in the boots or shoes at first or try to remove them but most dogs quickly adjust to them. Elderly dogs should adapt and become more mobile as soon as they realize they can get their footing again.

Does your dog secretly long to be a superhero? Maybe your little princess puppy would like to look like a princess? Or maybe you just love the idea of dressing your dog up for Halloween and having some fun with your family and friends? Whatever the case, Halloween is a great time of year for dressing up pets in costumes. There’s a booming business in pet costumes and you’re sure to find one that appeals to you or your dog.

 

Where to find costumes

In your local pet store and online you can find lots of great ideas for costumes. You can dress your best friend as a cowboy, a pirate, a swashbuckler, or a dinosaur! There are feminine costumes for princesses, ballerinas, butterflies, and brides. Dress your boy dog as a little devil, put him in a tuxedo, or dress him as Elvis! You can find every kind of costume you can imagine.

 

Choosing a costume

When you choose your dog’s costume be sure to get the right size. Costume sizing should be accurate but if you are in doubt, it’s better to get a costume that is a little larger than one that is too small. Take your dog’s measurements before you go shopping so you will know for sure what sizes your dog needs.

 

A few tips

  • Some dogs enjoy getting dressed up more than others. If your dog doesn’t enjoy wearing a costume, keep it simple and don’t make him wear it for a long time.

 

  • Avoid complicated costumes with lots of pieces and parts. They can break and your dog might possibly eat a  piece of the costume.

 

  • Avoid costumes that have pieces that stick out or wave around. Many dogs find costumes like this frightening.

 

  • Some dogs don’t like hats or things on their faces so if the costume has something like this, be sure to supervise your dog closely when he is wearing it and remove it when you can’t watch your dog.

 

  • Don’t keep the costume on your dog for long periods of time. Most dogs will get tired of wearing them. They will often remove the costume themselves if you don’t remove it.

 

  • If you are taking your dog trick or treating, remember that dogs can’t eat chocolate. It can be toxic to them.  Only give your dog treats that are safe for dogs to eat.

 

  • If you are taking your dog out for Halloween, try to make sure there won’t be things that will frighten him such as fireworks or loud music. If you are having a Halloween party at home, it’s often a good idea to limit the amount of time your dog spends with guests. Many dogs feel more comfortable if they can relax in another part of the home during a party, away from the noise.

 

Dogs can have a fun time at Halloween and they look adorable in their costumes. If you plan ahead you should be able to find the perfect costume for your dog.
