Dogs Need Nice Clothes Too

Is it a Good Time to Buy Your Dog a Coat?

Our dog Rudy likes to walk, but he hates winter and being cold.  That's why we bought him a couple of dog coats.  He also has a sweater that he wears sometimes.  Dog coats have come a long way and fit much better than they used to.  Basset hounds actually don't mind having a coat on, because they are such wimps with bad weather.  The newer coats are easy to put on them as well.  Some velcro straps and your are done.

I see so many dogs wearing coats these days, many wear them because it gives them a sense of comfort ( or so I am told).

Just beware of the coats that  go too far back on the underside if you have a male basset hound.  We learned that the hard way and found that they will pee all over them! Ha!

Coats are also a fashion statement as I am sure you are aware. It is fun to dress them up , especially for Halloween!

Rudy the Basset Hound Models Some Clothes

I thought I would share some pics of Rudy in some hats.  He also has socks on in one photo.  Surprisingly, Basset Hounds don't seem to mind too much when you put clothes on them.  I guess that is why there are so many stores selling dog clothes, especially for larger dogs.

Basset Hound Collars

Does your basset hound try to slip his collar over his head? Mine does that all the time. It is so annoying, yet you know how stubborn bassets are!  If they smell some food across the street , that is where they want to go. I have often thought that a good collar for a basset would actually be a harness. I always hate to make the collar tight enough to keep it from slipping over his head.  A harness would have some really good benefits.

A harness would keep my dog safe.  I am always concerned that he will slip the collar off just when a car passes by or something. I think a harness would stop that.  He might drag me into the street, though. Ha!

If you are looking for basset hound clothes or maybe interested in the harness idea, you can find some great deals here.

How Important is Good Dog Clothing – Quality or Cheap?

Good dog clothing will have some tell-tell marks in the construction. Anyone who truly understands dogs, will be aware of the things that will make dog clothing a lasting investment. Cheap construction in large sewing mills, will not result in a good quality stitching and a lasting garment. The type of stitch as well as the type of thread will largely determine how long the clothes are usable.

If you have a large dog, it is even more important to get clothes that will stand up to the pressure. Large dogs will strain the stitching much more than the smaller breeds. This is an important consideration when you look at price vs. quality.
Good dog clothes will cost more and as you buy for a larger dog, the price goes up even more.

Some things to look for specifically when you are looking to buy dog clothing.

1. Stitching should be tight and the ends should be backstitched at least 1/2 inch. This is what holds the stitching tight and will keep the fabric from ripping under stress.
2. The fabric should be hemmed properly and the edges should be either bound or fused, depending on the materials used.
3. The attachment points should be heavy buttons or Velcro. Velcro is used many times and it is easy to get your pet into and out of, but velcro can get really muddy and matted with hair. Large buttons, if sewn correctly, will give you at least as good a garment as the velcro, if you can hold Fido long enough to get the buttons fastened.

Since you are going to pay your hard earned money for these dog clothes, get quality and you will have them for a long time.

Basset Hound Clothes – Discount

So many of you have asked, "where can I get clothes to fit a Basset Hound?".  Well here is the answer.  Actually many dog clothes will fit a Basset Hound, and surprisingly, they like to wear clothes.  Bassets will really love to wear a raincoat because they generally hate the rain.  Some Bassets are also very girlie and like to be cuddled and primped so they may actually let you put sweaters on them in the house ans such.

Find some nice clothes below for your beloved Basset Hound or other large dog.

Dog Beds – Comfort Makes for a Healthy Pet

When we think of dog clothing, we seldom consider that dogs sleep a good portion of their lives.  Who cares if your dog wears the most fashionable clothes around, but has a terrible bed to sleep in.  Actually, my dog has 3 beds.  Each one is slightly different and I think he likes each one at separate times of the day.

My dog is a Basset Hound and he really does sleep a lot.  Sometimes  I think all he does is sleep and eat.  When I consider all the money we have spent on him, I am glad it was mainly for things that make his life more comfortable.  Before you go out and buy a bunch of dog clothes for that new dog of yours, be sure to take care of his or her basic comfort.   A good bed will help you have a happy dog.

One of the first things to look for in a good dog bed is whether it can be washed.  Many dogs including hounds have a very smelly oily skin that gets into the bed real quick.  Make sure the bed you buy can be washed in the wash machine every few weeks.  We usually try to wash the bed at least every month.

The next thing I would look for in a good dog bed is materials it is made of.  Some dogs have skin allergies and the last thing you want to do is make that worse by getting a bed stuffed with something that your dog is allergic to.  There is no real good way to discover whether your dogs' bed is causing him to scratch, except to remove it and see if the itching gets better.  Many times dogs become allergic to certain materials over time.  Just be alert to this when providing bedding for your dog.

Where the bed is placed is a very important component to the overall dog bed discussion.  Dogs like to feel protected when they are in their bed.  Most dogs prefer to have their bed located against a wall, or even in a corner.  To them, this provides some security.  When you are gone and they are all alone in the house , they appreciate the comfort and security of their bed.  My dog was trained to use a kennel ( that is, a big wire cage), when he was young and he still considers it one of his favorite beds.  He knows when he goes in there, he is safe.

Dog beds are more important than dog clothes, so make certain that before you go out spending money on dog coats and dog sweaters, that you get your beloved dog a good bed or two to snuggle in.
