In today’s world, people aren’t the only ones who are into fashion. Their canine companions are surprisingly making a run in the catwalk. Dogs have been the talk of the town when it comes to accessories and dresses for them.
It’s not uncommon for people to see a lady walking her poodle clad in a shabby one piece jacket. There’s also a belief that a dog is a direct reflection of its owner. People, especially women, want to present themselves as neatly as possible through their clothing, so they look for ways to improve their image.
Although some might argue that dogs don’t need clothing, some of our furry friends enjoy wearing clothes. Here are some pieces of clothing that can look stylish and excellent on our passionate pooches and what breeds are ideal for those outfits.
These wool vests are exactly the things that small to medium sized dogs want to wear. Sweater vests materials typically consist of synthetic or natural wool which is warm to wear during winter times. Dogs with short hair and other similar breeds like mini pinschers, beagle pups, and dachshunds are perfect for sweaters.
Although dogs with long hair like Toy Poodles, Scotties, and Pomeranians appear to be in discomfort while wearing these clothing, their activity and movements will prove otherwise. Medium sized dogs like Boxers, Labradors, and Huskies, can also use sweaters.
Chunky knits are also suitable for dogs in the toy, small, and medium sizes. Owners should be mindful, however, to not allow the sweater to interfere with their dog’s walking. These shirts may look thick, but rest assured that most are from lightweight materials which can allow a dog to go on with their doggy business freely.
Chihuahuas, Yorkies, and pugs fit snuggly with chunky knits. Just be careful of loose ends which could get tangled with almost anything.
Another great piece of clothing is a harness. Dogs that wear harnesses benefit from its structure due to being more open and free. Its design permits more movement and freedom. Harnesses also have pockets on the side which are perfect places to put in water and food canisters.
Large working dogs such as St. Bernards, Malamutes, and German Shepherds often wear harnesses. These clothing for dogs are highly customizable which favor the owner as they can design it with anything they have in mind.
Dogs love wearing hats and bonnets. Scotties and Yorkies look good with cute hats on especially if it’s winter time. When wearing hats, it’s important that they fit comfortably. Bonnets and other accessories that take up a lot of space on a dog’s head should avoid covering their ears as this makes them uncomfortable.
Another popular trend nowadays is fitting dogs with costumes that make them look like humans or adorable cartoon characters. Costumes that have hands make dogs look so cute because of the way their hands bounce up and down while running or walking. Smaller dogs can wear these outfits.
For larger dogs, costumes like the big mutant spider dog from 2014. These are never out of date and is amusing especially when Halloween parties are coming.
Humans aren’t the only ones enjoying the fashion trends nowadays. Our canine friends are slowly and stylishly entering the world of fashion. A lot of people dress up their pooches because they think that their dog is a direct representation of themselves.
Due to this, a lot of dogs end up with cute looks and fabulous styles. Items such as sweaters and hats are good enough for dogs to look stylish. Costumes, on the other hand, provide more amusement for those watching.
