Thread: Doggy Clothes

  1. #1

    Default Doggy Clothes

    What do you think of doggy clothes???

    Do you think there is a need for them? Or are you of the opinion that they are ridiculous?

    I use the coats, and I admit to putting a santa hat on at christmas time but that's about the limit of it for me.

    The coats I use are warm, sometimes waterproof and un-adorned, right now in need of replacement... Thanks puppy!

    The recent weather has made me think about the coats...for warmth. I think the litle shoes and frilly skirts, bows for their ears are ridiculous!!! As are the doggy prams!!!

    I'm thinking about making Poppy a fleece coat...shouldn't be too hard! I came first in Textiles & Design in Yr 12! Haha!!!

    Where did you get your coat Angela?

    It's a 'weatherbeeta' and it actually came from Horseland

    You can get them in lots of pet stores. From memory the Pet Goods Direct near us (Riverlink) stock them!

    ETA: From memory the Horseland is having a rug sale at the moment and they have coats in there. I don't know if they would stock them in a size small enough for Poppy though

    DA, I use one on Roly because being elderly now and after eating rat bait his fur really thinned out. He shivers non-stop. His fur doesn't seem to hold his heat anymore, so the coat just traps it in.

    we use a "weatherbeater" on our old lab (11) in winter she gets arthritis in her hips and so when she's outside she wears it and it has helped her not get so stiff

    It gets to minus 8 here sometimes overnight in the winter and the majority of the time Batty has to go out to the toilet between 4 and 5am. He has a single coat and feels the cold really badly (even just wet mornings have him shivering badly) so I pop a coat on him while he's outdoors. If he had a double coat he'd be fine.

    I want a raincoat for him so I don't have to follow him around with an umbrella when it's raining though!

    Well that makes perfect sense to me.

    The photo you posted, I agree. In my opinion that's the product of a sick person.
