DOG CLOTHES and ACCESSORIES - Look Here First

Updated on February 14, 2014

Dog Clothes and Accessories Are Great For Dressing Your Pup Up to Strut Their Stuff!

Here you'll find a huge list of great dog clothes and accessories in all shapes, sizes, colors and varieties! From camouflage to your favorite college logo to rock and roll, we've got 'em all! Any dog owner knows that in any weather, all dogs want to look their best and with these great styles, they all can!

Dog outfits, slickers, and coats can help keep them warm, make them look cute, and keep them dry, but if your dog won't wear the sweater, or outfit, or coat, then you've wasted good money and your dog is still cold and/or wet, and/or naked.

I have three dogs, so finding comfortable, well-made outfits and apparel is really important to me. To top it off, my dogs are literally three sizes: small, medium and large! The littlest is a yorkie/mini-schnauzer mix, the middle one is a border collie/who knows-what mix, and the largest is a 140 lb Belgian Malinois! So, you can see that I have my work cut out for me when I try to find sweaters or outfits that will work for my menagerie!

The largest boy actually only needs something in the very coldest weather since he has a heavy undercoat and won't wear a T-shirt for love nor money so I generally only get him one all-weather coat during the winter. The other two will dress up for me, because they love me, and then they both need a warm coat and a raincoat, especially the little one who's fur is more like hair than fur (and she's a Diva anyway...)

I like this Camo Dog Hoodie Sweatshirt because it comes in all three sizes and two colors (green and pink, think Diva) and is tailor made for keeping your pet warm and dry while looking great and can work from early spring into early summer, then again from early fall into early winter. It's soft and comfortable, with a great fit, and is guaranteed to be their favorite! It's made with a fleece interior, fits snugly around the chest and has a slit for the leash to slip through and attach to the collar. It has a nice fit which allows your pet to move freely to exercise, but still remain covered and is especially nice with the hood up to protect sensitive ears on cold, windy or rainy days.

My dogs love this sweatshirt and the little one doesn't want to take it off when we come in. Even my big boy will wear this one, and like I said earlier, he's a bit picky about wearing anything. I've also added some great T-shirts that I love for spring and summer, as well as some of the best training aids that I use. My dogs and I spend a great deal of time working on training, especially the big boy and I since he can be a handful if he's not trained well. It's so much easier to train, if we're both having fun, so I use our pond quite a bit and we both end up wet and laughing, but he learns and he listens. I hope you enjoy our lens as much as we did putting it together! Have fun, LaughingLady, Shennie, Smooch, and Sadie (The Pack)

I've noticed that there are some places and some people who like to dress up their dogs! I think this is great! I, for one, know that dogs have veeery distinct personalities, why shouldn't we dress them up and show off those personalities? I also really like the contests and parades where people dress up their pets and then dress up to complement their pets or to look just like their pets. Those events are so much fun! I am so in awe of the creativity and flair of some of these folks and the costumes they create! It's amazing what they come up with! I'm not nearly that creative so I try to enhance my lack of creative spark by finding unusual and funny pet clothing and costumes that I can make work for my three canines. I've put some of my favorites on here for you to take a look at. Perhaos you'll see something that's just perfect for your four-footed best friend!

Does Your Dog Really Need a Dog Sweater This Winter?

According to "PetMD", It Couldn't Hurt, and Will Probably Help!

We all know that our dogs have layers of hair that help regulate their body temperature and keep them warm during cold weather. However, according to PetMD.com many dogs have lighter layers hair which doesn't do as good a job of keeping them warm in cold weather or they are just genetically not suited for the weather in the environment where they've "landed". When this happens, these poor pooches are really sensitive to the weather and when it's cold, they can be miserable, just as miserable as we would be if we were outside in winter weather without a coat! So, the verdict is in. Go ahead and buy that cute dog sweater you've had your eye on! Your dog will thank you for it and she'll not only be the talk of the dog walk when she's strutting her stuff, but she'll be toasty warm on the coldest day and you'll feel good knowing she's feeling good!

"Smooch", Our Border Collie Mix

Image is My Own

We are so very fortunate to live on a farm and my canine buddies are able to run and get their exercise every day. Even the little one is a great farm dog! As our vet said last time we visited, "You can put ribbons and bows in her hair, but she's still a terrier and will revert to being a farm dog given the chance." And that she is! Still, even with space to run and play with each other, the dogs still love to play with toys and I use toys to train them as well. Especially with the Malinois, toys are helpful in obedience training, so I can ensure he is under my control at all times. I am always on the look out for good toys that can't easily be destroyed by aggressive chewing or tugging and that will withstand being thrown into the water for retrieval exercises. I also like toys that can be used for search and retrieval exercises and that help with herding training. I've listed some of my favorites below, along with some of their reviews so you can see for yourself which might work for you.

Great Toys to Help with Training Your Dog!

They Think They're Playing, but They're Really Learning!

KONG Air Dog Fetch Stick with Rope Dog Toy Exclusive tennis ball fabric is nonabrasive and gentle on your dog's teeth and gums. The KONG Air Dog Fetch Stick with Rope floats high on water and comes with a high-quality throw rope. This toy is perfect for retriever and sheperd

training!

Kong Aqua Dog Toy is a great water toy, especially for larger dogs. The bright orange color is easy to spot and the rope makes it an easy grab. Some owners recommend not allowing the dog to have it unsupervised to keep the prey drive up.

Pet Buddies Pooch Tug-A-Lot Super Bouncer Dog ToyThe Pet Buddies PB1136 Blue Super Bouncer Pooch Tug-a-Lot Toy has a strong rope with a durable rubber ball which your dog will love to pull and play tug-of-war with. The rope is made from TPR a durable, chewy material made of 100% cotton rope. This makes it very strong and as your dog pulls and chews on it, makes it act as floss and a cleaning agent for your dog's teeth. While your dog is pulling on their end of the Pooch Tug-A-Lot, you can either sit or stand and hold your end while your dog pulls on their end providing a great work out for the both of you! Just be careful not to yank your dog's neck and head back and forth because you can possibly injure them. This is a very versatile toy, especially for training - you can fling it or throw it for retrieving; it's perfect for toss and fetch or tug-of-war games, which helps train for search and retrieve or for strengthening the prey drive. The chew rope also makes this toy great for keeping the teeth healthy and breath fresh.
