Frequently Asked Questions about Dog Clothes
Do dogs like wearing clothes?
Some dogs do like wearing clothes, but every dog is different. Dogs with thicker coats may overheat in clothing, and others may simply find it unpleasant. Some dogs do enjoy wearing clothing, though, and it can be a nice way to warm your pup up in cooler temperatures. Acclimate your canine to wearing clothing gradually, and watch for any signs of distress or discomfort. Be sure not to leave your dog unattended while wearing clothing, especially if he is still getting used to wearing it.
How do I measure clothes for my dog?
Measure clothes for your dog by first measuring your dog’s neck girth, chest girth and topline/back measurement. Measure neck girth by positioning a tape measure around your dog’s neck right where he would wear a collar, remembering to leave it loose enough that you can fit two fingers under the tape. Do the same thing around the largest part of the chest, usually right behind the front legs, using the two finger rule as before. The topline measurement is the length from the base of the neck to where the tail begins. Always size up if your dog is in between sizes, and make sure any clothing is neither too tight nor too loose.
Do dogs need clothes to stay warm?
Some dogs need clothes to stay warm in cooler temperatures, especially if they are older, ailing or have a thinner coat. Other dogs may have thicker coats that are well-suited to colder climates. Keep an eye on your dog for signs that he is cold and talk to your vet about appropriate measures during cold weather activities.
