Dogs do not need to be dressed up. They come with their own beautiful coat of fur. Some have short fur and some have long fur, or fluffy fur which is the clothing God gave them. However, we have taken the animals and domesticated them to the point that we forget that they are not human. Remember the movie Legally Blonde? The main character had a small dog that she carried around in a designer bag, dressed in designer dog apparel. They both were perfectly matched at all times. Many pet lovers and owners look for the very best for their pooches. Sometimes they take care of their pets better than themselves. I was reading 'Dear Abby" yesterday, and a lady was complaining that when they run out of food for their cat, instead of going to the store and buying more cat food, her husband would feed the cat the liver pate she was saving for special occasions. There are many pet apparel stores around the world. Pet fashion has become big business. Naturally, everyone is looking for the best designer dog apparel they possibly can.
Many Manufacturers have special designers to perfect the garment to fit the pooch. It depends on your taste as to what you think is pretty. Just like the clothes on the runway can be interesting, many of those outfits don't really suit everyone. Similarly, dog couture can depend on the taste of the owner. I like pretty and soft fabrics for the designer outfits. Did you know that Paris Hilton has 17 dogs? She certainly can afford to dress each of them in the very best dog clothes. Again, she too likes to have matching outfits for the dogs she carries with her. No, I do not know if she dresses all her dogs all the time. Dog clothes must cover the whole dog, otherwise it looks like they are missing their pants. But putting on pants for dogs can be inconvenient for the pet and the owner. The dresses and shirts are made with the fact that dogs need to go and cannot tell us when.
It is important to size the dog clothes with correct measurements. If you put a big dog in clothes designed for small dogs it could look awkward. Actually, if you are going to spend the money, it is best to send your pet's measurements and have the outfits custom made for your pooch. My daughter's dog looks beautiful in the pretty dresses she wears. I find that it is important to brush her fur after you remove the clothes so that the fur does not get matted.
