Dog Clothes Considerations for Large Dogs

When most people think of dog clothes, they visualize little dogs like Paris Hilton might tote around in her purse. It may surprise you to know that there are a lot of choices of clothes for large dogs. There are also some considerations to keep in mind when choosing dog clothing for large dogs.

Comfort Factor

When you are considering clothes for large dogs, remember to take into account their comfort. You can find a variety of dog clothes and t-shirts on Vet Co. Usually the big dogs do not require any type of clothing during warmer months. This will cause them to overheat. The natural response would be to try to remove clothing with any means available. Save the clothing for cooler weather.

Size

 

Another aspect to consider is the fit. Tight clothing will make your dog uncomfortable and produces the same response as clothing that cause him to overheat. Loose clothing can cause the dag to become tangled. Proper fit is important to your dog's health and safety.

 

Training the Dog for Clothes

You can not just expect your dog to be as excited as you are about the prospect of a new wardrobe if he has never been asked to get dressed before. He should be familiar with the process. It can take some time. Initially, it is a good idea to start with something as simple as a coat or hoodie. Choosing the right time of the day is also important. Playtime will only result in a shredded garment. Interrupting his afternoon nap is probably not the best time either. Wait until your dog has played or exercised and is in a cooling down mode.
