Tips on buying clothes for your lovable pets

Check for the size: Tight dog clothes are no more comfortable than the loose ones. Besides, not having a proper fit can cause your dog to have problems walking or cause hazards to it’s health. It is always important to take the measurements of your dog before you make any type of purchase.

Decode the type: It’s vital to know what kind of fur your dog has before buying the clothes. Basically, you do not want to add insulation to an already overheated dog. For example, there is no need to get a winter dog coat for your Husky. For a Labrador, a cotton and polyester mix coat is a good option. If it’s snowing then a snowsuit type dog coat is best for smaller dogs and larger dogs that lack a lot of fur to keep them warm.

Keep it simple: Avoid buying dog clothes with a lot of frilly extras and gems. These can fall off or the dog can get a foot caught in them and end up getting hurt.
