How about formal small dog clothes?

After you leave the veterinarian for you pup's annual check up and you have made sure that he is healthy and you have all the foods you need for him as well, why not take him shopping for some really cool small dog clothes? You will find the best retailers online for some of the best dog clothing you can find anywhere.

You wouldn't buy clothes for yourself in the wrong size so you are going to need to make sure that you know your dog's correct size before buying him clothes. Getting those sizes is as easy as measuring your dog. The girth is straight down his back, from the bottom of his neck to the beginning of where his tail starts. You will want the circumference measurement of around his neck and the width of chest as well. With these sizes, you will be able to find perfect fitting small dog clothes.

Sometimes you will find small dog clothes that have long sides, especially in the cases of cloaks and dresses. It is important that you make sure these kinds of outfits fit your dog without dragging the floor because this will get to be an aggravation for your dog when trying to walk.

Dog sweaters

Dog sweaters can be designer or handmade. Whether they are knitted or crocheted, dog sweaters come in a variety of colors and styles. Dog sweaters may resemble plain or preppy sweaters for men or have a holiday design.

Dog sweaters typically have a collar around the dog's neck and fit around the dog's chest and front legs. The bottom of the dog sweater usually sits on top of the dog's back with no sleeves for the dog's rear legs which could be easily soiled.

Ralph Lauren makes designer sweaters for small dogs. Ralph Lauren dog sweaters start at ninety-five dollars and can cost as much as one hundred fifteen dollars.

Does my new puppy need a dog bed?

Friends of mine have just become new puppy owners. As would be expected, the first thing they did was go shopping for all the new equipment that is required for a new puppy. Leashes, collars, toys, sweaters, booties, etc. They bought a cage for crate training their new puppy, but they just weren't sure about whether they should get a dog bed along with the cage.

More accurately, I think it might be impossible for a puppy to be expected to stay in a dog bed. For at least the first 8 to 12 months in their new homes puppies need to sleep in a cage.
