As the warmer weather takes us out to the pool, the lake or the beach, it is important to remember our dogs need protective dog clothes, too. Dog Swim Wear is a good example of protective dog clothes in summer. A dog tanktini or swim top or swim shirt helps to protect your dog’s coat and skin while having fun in the water. You can also coordinate their swimwear with the rest of the family’s suits for that spirit of togetherness, that seems to be missing today. Our dog swim tops are made of the brand called Lycra and for the reason they dry quickly and Lycra makes fun and vibrant patterns and colors. Our dog swim wear can also be used out of the water, as a dog pullover t-shirt to protect it from insects and bug bites. Dog shirt pullovers are a natural remedy to dangerous pesticides they try to get us to use.
But how does pet swimwear help protect the animal? Just think of all of those insects down at the level of the grass and sand competing for your pet’s skin. They can’t tell you when they have a bug bite so we must take a precaution for them when outdoors in the summer. With gnats, flies, fleas, sand fleas, ticks, hot direct sun, etc. your dog’s skin is constantly at risk and when their coats are wet the insects are drawn toward your pet even more than when they’re dry. Gnats, flies and mosquitoes are the worse because they leave painful bites on the skin which can lead to allergic reactions, infections, not to mention all that burning and itchiness which causes scratching.
All these bug issues can be avoided if we just cover the dog with a swim suit to add a protective layer around the skin and coat. It’s also good habit to dry your dog off with a towel after it exits the water. While most dog owners think their swimsuits are just for fun and fashion, this type of pet clothes can provide some UV protection against the sun, too. Don’t forget the sunscreen on the nose area!!
