Here is the single most important thing you should do before buying any type of small dog clothes.
MEASURE YOUR DOG!
It’s so important that you purchase something that fits properly. Think of how you buy clothes for yourself, you don’t buy them if they are way too big or sooo small that you have to squeeze into them.
There is nothing worse than being uncomfortable and having restricted movement especially when it comes to your small dog.
Make sure that their legs are not restricted in any way, you want them to be able to reach full stride if they break into a run. So don’t purchase something that is really tight and has no give around their legs.
Here is a link to a great little site that has a sizing chart for your dog. Give it a quick read and measure your pet.
I really dislike buying something and then having to return it and deal with sending it back, getting credited and then starting all over again. It’s easier to just get it right the first time out.
If you have a seriously cool dog and want to really make him/her stand out in the crowd you should look into sporty clothes for dogs.
As people we all have a certain style or flair that relates directly to our own attitude. Your dog has an attitude too and I believe that we as owners should showcase it.
I have also owned pretty cool dogs (my personal opinion). They have had their good points and bad, but overall they were and still are all really great.
I wanted to post this picture of a chihuahua wearing a sporty hoodie. You have to admit, he looks pretty cool. Small dogs are a lot of fun to be around and to see them all proud to be dressed up like their master is quite funny to say the least.
Another item that will make them look even cooler is a dog bandana. They automatically look sporty and definitely incorporate the “Cool Factor” into your pet’s appearance. I don’t know why but I always look to see what kind of design is on the bandana. It gives me a hint of what the dog’s personality is and their owner’s too. There’s nothing funnier than seeing a teeny tiny chihuahua wearing a skull and crossbones bandana. They’re protective littel guys and I think a bandana works better than a “Beware of Dog” sign hanging around their neck. Now that I think of it, a massive bling necklace (rapper style) that says “Beware of Dog” in glittery faux diamonds would be pretty funny.
They way I look at things. If I’m going to buy clothes for dogs I want to make sure that they scream personality and showcase my canine friend so that they look their best.
Small dog attitude t-shirts can really be a source of entertainment for everyone. If you like your pet to be the center of attention and a source of conversation..a doggietude t-shirt with a crazy saying is a real icebreaker.
