clothes: fashionable or functional?
are dog clothes to cover
up pretty much every part of your dog's body. Let's
see...There are dog shoes, dog jackets, dog hats and
dog goggles. Dog apparel even includes tee shirts, dog
sweaters, dog raincoats and who knows what's next!
that your dog needs clothes.
While it seems kind of human centric to believe that
our canine friends need dog clothes, I can think of
three occasions when they do!
Dog clothes provide protection from extreme cold. Sled
dogs are known to wear dog boots and dog coats. So are
a lot of dogs who live in snowy cold climates. Jackets
add warmth where warmth is essential to health and endurance.
Boots protect paws from the cold. And where street salts
are used boots protect your pets paws from injury.
2. Dog clothes provide protection form environmental
hazards. Search and rescue dogs wear dog boots when
paw and pad safety is a concern. A dog who might get
bitten by spiders and fire ants on his walks would also
benefit from wearing dog boots.
3. Dog clothes provide protection from sunlight. Sled
dogs may wear goggles to protect their eyes against
cataracts from the constant snow glare. Working dogs
and search and rescue dogs may wear dog goggles (doggles)
for eye protection when conditions are windy and there
is a lot of grit stirring in the air.
