Rudy the Basset Hound Models Some Clothes

Posted on Sep 29, 2012 11:41:50 AM

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.

How Important is Good Dog Clothing – Quality or Cheap?

Posted on Dec 28, 2009 08:51:46 PM

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.

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.

Halloween Costumes For Dogs

Posted on Oct 24, 2009 02:20:39 PM

Dog clothing comes in a lot of variety and especially so during some holidays.  Halloween is a favorite time to dress up the family dog, if the dog will allow it.  Dogs look so cute in their Halloween costumes, but some costumes are just better than others.   I recently saw a dog costume called Count Dogula.  As you can guess, it was a Dracula costume on a little fluffy dog.  I think it might have looked better on a bigger , meaner looking dog.  The dog that was modeling this costume was just not a Dracula looking dog.  I think a Doberman would be much better as a model for a Dracula suit!

As I was looking further, I found a clown costume.  Now the little dog modeling it did look like a clown and the whole effect made me laugh.  I hope that dog could walk on his hind feet to really make the costume work.

dog1Next I found a this silly little dog on the left.  As you can see, you have to have a very compliant dog that would let you put an entire outfit on it.  I know our Basset hound would never allow such a thing.  Many of the costumes for dogs come in a few pieces,  It helps to get the whole thing on them.

Another costume I came across that I really liked was a hot dog.  Of course the dog modeling it was a dachshund, which was very appropriate for the dog clothing.  I think these types of dogs tolerate the whole dog clothing better than others.

Next I found a costume on a boxer and this dog was clearly not happy about wearing it.  I guess the photographer has to be quick to get the photo before the dog just shakes the parts of the costume off.  This dog has a Christmas costume on, and the photograph clearly shows a dog that does not seem like he is enjoying it.

Some costumes are nothing more than a fancy collar and some sort of head piece.  These types of costumes are better suited for the bigger, meaner dogs.  The quality of these dog costumes runs the gamut from very good, to made of flannel. Most will not survive more than a few wearings.  Dogs are very hard on clothes, since they don't really care what happens to them, and most of the time they are trying to get the clothes off.

Should Dogs Wear Clothes When the Weather is Bad?

Posted on Oct 24, 2009 01:26:39 PM

Should Dogs wear coats when the weather is bad?

Dogs wear clothes just like people these days. I am not sure if everyone has been observing this new fashion trend, but dogs wear clothes!  The question is, what if you take a dog for a walk on a cold winter day, will the dog feel cold?  I think all this starts with the way we have considered our dogs to be members of the family.  I mean what mother would let her children go out and play in the snow without a coat on?  So now that our dogs are a part of the family, we have to buy dog clothes for them. It may surprise you to find that there is a big market in dog clothing.  So much so, that there are dog models, and dog clothes designers, and dog clothes seamstresses, but I digress.

It seems to me that we don't have enough information to know whether a dog gets cold and should wear a coat on bad weather days.  Our Basset Hound has a thick fur coat on already.  I think  he would just be too hot with another coat on.  I think maybe it depends on the breed.  Take a little Chihuahua.  They have very little fur and very little fat.  I  think they would get cold much quicker.  A Basset hound has tons of fat to protect him from the cold.

Another factor to consider may be the weather.  If is just cold, that is no problem for a dog with a thick fur, but if it is raining and cold, it could be a big difference.  I have noticed our Basset hound doesn't like the rain very much.  I am curious as to whether he would go out more in the rain if he had a dog rain coat?

Dog clothes come in all sizes, but I have noticed that the number and variety of clothes tends toward the smaller dog.  I suppose the small dogs are easier to dress?  Maybe the owners of small dogs tend to buy clothes for them more often than the owners of  large dogs.  I am trying to find a nice raincoat for our Basset, who is named Rudy.   Now he weighs in at 70 pounds, so he needs a pretty big coat. If we are going to experiment with the dog clothing thing, we have to have some variety for  the larger dogs.    There are some really good sites for dog clothes or a dog collar, but I can't find any for the larger dogs.

Dog Clothes Depot for Your Pooch

Posted on Oct 22, 2009 12:28:17 PM

We all have these great family members that don't have any clothes.  I am talking about our dogs.

It always surprises me what people will do for their dogs.  I am not what I would call a dog person, but my wife is and we have had a dog for most of our married life.  I had dogs when I was growing up on the farm, but they stayed outside and lived in "dog houses".  Today's family canine is more likely  to have his own room in the house.
Right now we have a 7 year old Basset and he runs this place.

So, back to the topic.  I have been surprised to learn that people like to buy dog clothes just as much as they like to buy clothes for themselves.  Just yesterday, my neighbor brought her little dog over and it had a Baltimore Ravens coat on.  Now the dog wasn't cold or anything, the neighbor just wanted her dog to support the local football team.  I began to think about whether our Basset hound would go for that.  I am sure my wife would like to buy some dog clothes for him.  I just can't imagine him allowing anyone to put dog clothes on him.  After all , he doesn't even get out of the car at the vet without a muzzle on.

Still the idea does seem to be a popular one. Is it because people have too much money in this great country?  That may be part of it.  I also considered it was just a female thing.  Is it mainly the women that buy these clothes for their dog?  I guess there is no way to know that, as there would be no way to track "who" buys the clothes for the dogs.

In my limited research I have determined that for whatever reason, it is very fashionable to buy clothes for your dog.  Now the question is, where does a person go to buy these dog clothes?  I think the Dog Clothes Depot would be a great place to start.
