We put sunblock on our skin and we wear sun protective clothing when we’re out in the sun for long periods of time.

Dogs also have sun sensitivity.  Dog breeds with the shorter, thinner hair; or dogs that are elderly and having hair loss are most susceptible for burning in the sun. Ears and bellies will become sore and hair will begin to fall out if the skin is sunburned. Their noses can also easily get sunburned and become sore, dry and cracked.

If it is hot out your dog probably won’t appreciate being fashioned in his full fashionable puppy clothing.  But if you are going to spend hours out in the sunshine it is wise to use a sunblock pet spray to keep his skin protected from those harmful rays.

He is wearing the perfect bow tie for his prom date!  Just a little puppy fashion can go a long way.  I think they’d better snap a picture with his tongue in his mouth for the photo album though.  =)

I found this on youtube and thought it was cute.  The dogs are wagging and seem to love what is happening and one seems downright scared of the camera!

I was a little angry when I walked into Target the other day and saw the Halloween aisle. I’m in denial that summer is ending.
Halloween is fun and all but being from Michigan, my puppy and I have 6 months of snow and ice to weather through. But, one nice thing about Halloween being here is the costumes!
It is time for dogs to be anything they want! Your dog can be a lizard, pig, cowboy or hot dog! Puppies love Halloween attention and now is the time to find the perfect costume for your poochie.
Got a Bulldog?
Maybe he should be a ballerina!
Got a weiner dog?
Maybe he should become a hot dog!
The idea’s never cease.
What are some of your favorite dog costumes?
I once saw a Weimarener dressed up as Billy the Kidd, complete with gun holster. It was hilarious and the dog loved all his fans.

If you are planning to dress your puppy up for the Halloween shenanigans please be safe and keep these things in mind!

1. Make sure you puppy likes his costume! Once you get your howl-goblin all costumed give him a few moments to adjust. If he cries, whimpers and looks terribly uncomfortable maybe it’s best to remove the costume. It’s only fun if you are both having fun. If your dog is miserable then he is going to hate Halloween. Keep in mind that costumes, just like your regular puppy clothing, should not block your dogs eyes (like bandanna’s, crowns, or eye patches for that puppy pirate). When a dog can’t see they will become more aggressive and we don’t want to make him feel vulnerable and unsafe, that is not nice.

2. Halloween means many people will be out on the street. Keep your puppy close to you if you decide to go outdoors to show of his snazzy cute costume. He should be leashed, collared and tagged with all his information! Dogs have been known to be abducted on Halloween so please keep him nearby so he is not teased or stolen by any non-friendly Halloweenies. Also, if you stay inside and answer the door to pass out candy to your trick-or-treaters be sure your dog is blocked away from the door. People wearing costumes could scare your puppy.

3. Don’t let your dog eat any candy! Candy is not for pets. It messes with their digestion and is toxic to their bodies! Wrappers are also unsafe and can obstruct your doggies intestines. Plus, there will be a huge mess to clean up. Please make sure the candy bowl is high out of reach from sniffy, curious puppy noses!

What does your puppy want? Your puppy probably wants to be a puppy.  Is there a pile of leaves to roll in? A skunk to chase? A roadkill squirrel pancake to eat? I’m sure your puppy will tell you.

So if you are in the market for some puppy clothing, you are probably wondering, will my puppy like it? Some basic wardrobe must haves are important and your puppy will love the attention.

A couple things to think about:
What kind of climate do you live in?
What types of clothing do you love?

Personally, my must have item is a soft, warm sweater. I’ve had it for years now and it isn’t very pretty anymore…but I can’t live without it.  Considering how animals love to snuggle and nestle your puppy would probably love to wear a ‘security sweater’. If you live in a colder climate or a very icily air-conditioned house this will keep all your puppy’s body warmth tucked in. They will most likely feel safe inside in and like their sweater.  Another must have item for your puppy is ….booties! I know, I know, they have paws with pads on their feet. Aren’t those built-in shoes?

Well…..no.  Some pets have serious allergies and the bottoms of their feet are very susceptible to pollen and outside allergens. Having puppy shoes or booties will keep your puppy’s feet free from having to touch The Great Outdoors. Booties also will keep your pets paws safe from the elements. No matter if your feet are furry or not, snow and rain are cold!  Having your puppy wear foot protection could also be a benefit for you. After your long muddy walk you don’t have to give your puppy a bath just to let him in the house again.
I hate it when there are muddy prints all over my house…that aren’t mine! Having your puppy wear boots means that when you come in the house you just remove the boots and VOILA–No Mess.

I’d say that is pretty functional.

Puppy clothes don’t have to be over-the-top and excessive. They really do have a logical and functional role for people and for animals. Letting your puppy enjoy his puppydom while you also keep him warm, safe, clean, and don’t forget CUTE, can be done in a thoughtful and down to earth way. Keeping ‘function’ in mind when puppy clothes shopping will help you both be happy fashion guru’s.
