Most dog clothes manufacturers actually provide dog apparel in a wide range of sizes to accommodate all dog sizes. Others even offer custom made clothes to ensure a right fit. You need to ensure that your dog is comfortable and that the clothes serve their purpose.

If you own small toy dogs, clothes wouldn?t be much of a problem. However, if you do own big dogs like German shepherds and the like you need to select apparel that is suited for the activities these large dogs may engage in.

You have to bear in mind that these dogs are more active and they require clothing that they will be comfortable in when they move about. If you will be buying clothes for working dogs, it is important to consider the type of work they are engaged in. Usually apparel for large dogs are more practical and basic in design compared to the flashy designs of cute and small dogs.

Choose material like nylon or cotton that will not trap heat onto your dog?s body and instead allow the dog?s coat to breathe. Clothes made of polyester are not advisable. You do not want your dog to overheat at this can be uncomfortable and dangerous.

It is essential that you get your dog used to wearing apparel for quite often some of them may feel uncomfortable in it. They just need to get used to the idea.
