Top Trends in Designer Dogwear
By Rachel Spohn
Once upon a time, the staples in a dog’s wardrobe consisted of a simple collar. If the owner was feeling especially adventurous, this collar might even come with a matching leash. The doggy fashion industry has evolved leaps and bounds since then, allowing even the tiniest of pooches to be as stylish as their human counterparts. Top designers now offer everything from t-shirts and dresses to booties and harnesses. For many pet owners, nothing is more adorable than seeing their fur baby dressed in a clever Halloween costume or winter gear–complete with pom-pom hat. But dressing your pet also has a practical purpose. Here are some of the latest trends in fashionable dogwear and the reasons behind them. They’re more reasonable than you may think.
Coats and sweaters. Some dogs, particularly small and shorthair breeds, feel the cold more intensely than people realize. A sweater or a coat on a chilly day can make outdoor excursions more enjoyable for your pet. If you’re shivering in the cold, chances are your pup is feeling it too.
Boots. Because snow and ice can damage a dog’s pads, dog boots can protect your dog’s feet from the harsh elements. Cracked pads are painful to your pet, and even the tiniest of dogs can benefit from the protection that boots offer.
T-shirts and dresses. Many people don’t know that dogs can sunburn too. Clothing protects them from the sun’s rays; dogs with light hair and pink skin are especially susceptible. That sassy t-shirt you bought for your pet provides sun protection he or she sorely needs.
Harnesses. An alternative to the traditional collar, harnesses help dogs that suffer from trachea problems or injuries. But even for dogs without these special needs, harnesses are quickly outmoding collars for dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Dog clothes aren’t just cute and playful, they are also a way of protecting your pet from the elements. And designer fashions ensure your baby is just as stylish as you are.
