Does Your Dog like to Wear Clothes? Does he like his dog sweat shirt, Raincoat?

Why do we do this??  The answer depends on the person you ask and the kind of dog that they own. I owned a Chihuahua. I only put a sweater or coat on him because he would shiver in the cold weather and I wanted to keep him warm. Lots of people want to make fashion statements when dressing their dog and will spends lots of money buying designer dog clothes. Dog clothes were originally developed for identity purposes and protection from the environment and from attack.  Today the role of dogs has changed to that of a family member. We choose to cloth them to protect them from the elements or just for fun or  fashion purposes.

One word of caution, don’t leave your dog alone with his clothes on. He may begin chewing or try to take the clothes off and hurt himself.

Enjoy buying those dog sweat shirts, dog coats, raincoats and sweaters, I’m sure that your dog won’t mind!
