If you ask most dog owners to tell you a thing or two about their dogs, they will tell you more than a thing or two, and most of the things they will tell you will be about how cute their dogs are. Dog owners consider their dogs as members of their families, which means they do all they can to give their dogs all the care that a family member deserves. However, in recent years, a lot of dog owners have started investing more time and money in dog care, in a bid to make their dog stand out and turn heads. In other words, many dog owners are now making their dogs models.

If you are thinking of making your dog a model or if you have a really cute dog that you would like to bring into show business, you must understand that making a dog a great model is not a walk in the park. It requires a lot of work and time. Therefore, getting your dog into show business is a hustle that you must find really enjoyable if you do not want to regret making the decision. The fun you had with your dog would be your pay off if things didn’t work out at the end of the day.

Ready to make your dog a supermodel? Here are some of the things you need to do:

All you need to do is get a camera or a phone with a good camera, snap clear shots of your dog, and have them printed in a 10-by-8 inch format. You can then send the pictures with your dog’s resume to several agencies.

Although getting your dog an agent does not guarantee success in show business, it gives your dog a good chance of becoming a successful model. Many agencies are in the business of finding dog-talent for movies, TV ads, and print ads. They are agencies that can propel your dog to stardom.

Before contacting an agent, you must:

  • Ensure your dog is comfortable around loud noises and bright light.
  • Ensure your dog is comfortable around a lot of people.
  • Ensure your dog can stay engaged for long hours.

Winter is a time when you need to keep yourself and your pet warm. Dogs are sensitive to winter, especially the puppies, old dogs, and sick dogs. Therefore, it is important to provide protective coverings for your dog’s body and feet. Winter clothing are even more important for your pets if you intend to take them outdoors for a long time during winter.

This article aims to let you some of the latest dog clothing that can effectively protect your pets against the adverse weather condition of the winter period, as well as help you show off your dog’s fashionable side.

Dog Sweaters

Sweaters help your pet stay warm and they come in a lot of sizes and beautiful designs. Make sure you choose a sweater that is of good quality, easy to wear and take off, fits perfectly, and feels comfortable on your dog. Some examples are sweaters with hoodies and poncho style sweaters.

Winter Coats

In addition to winter coats keeping your pet warm, they show class and style, thereby making your dog stand out. They also come in different sizes and designs. While choosing a winter coat for your dog, make sure it is of good quality, easy to wear and take off, fits perfectly, and comfortable on your dog.

Booties

Dogs have sensitive paws, which increases their chances of getting frostbite. Also, when dogs walk outdoors during winter, snow can get stuck in between their pads, causing discomfort and cuts. You can protect them against injuries and frostbite by putting booties on their paws. Booties come in different colors and pattern, so they not only protects their paws but make them look stylish.

Dog Leggings

Dog leggings are new winter fashion trends for dogs that many people do not know about. They are connected to booties and they protect your dog’s leg from germs and dirt.

Ear Warmer

Ears warmers give your dog the winter look and they keep their ears warm.

Snow Suit

If your dog is light furred or thin skinned, you should get it a snow suit for protection against cold weather condition during winter. A Snow suit is not for thick furred or thick skinned dogs because they have enough body fat and fur to conserve their body heat.

Neck Warmer or “Snoods”

Neck warmers also called “snoods” help you ensure your dog’s neck is not left out when you wear winter clothing on other parts of its body. However, you should make sure you chose a neck warmer that is not too tight but fits well on your dog’s neck.

National Dog Day remembers your canine friend and this day is for honoring the dogs. The dogs are remembered for their unstinting support in times of disasters, in times of law enforcement duties, and in helping the blind. This day also remembers their unflinching devotion to us in times of pulling bomb affected persons to safety and detecting bombs in tense times.

National Dog Day reminds us of our eternal companion for his love which we can surely reciprocate by showering some affection for dogs ourselves. One is by celebrating August 26 as dogs day. National dog day has been reserved for heaping praises and admiration on him and the recognition he so much deserves.

National Dog Day is a holiday that was founded in 2004 with the pure aim of celebrating all dogs on earth of every breed, color, mix and size. The National Dog Day was founded by Colleen Paige, a Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate.

No matter what you are going through at any point in time – a bad day at work, breakup, and sickness, your pet will always be by your side. And for this loyalty shown, you should always show them how much they mean to you. This you can show by being the best dog mom to them. And it is a fact that to make them happy and healthy, it requires a lot of time and commitment on your part but some of such activities can be programmed into some of the daily leisure moments in order to ease the burden on you and make it livelier.

Here are the five ways you can be the best dog mom:

1. Get personalized pet garments with identification chip or tag for your dog as this will help you to easily find them if they get lost. As a caring mom, this is essential because the first thing you want to do to your real child is to be safe and be under your watch. But your dog can be naughty at times and wiggles away from home, So you can just get a dog collar with name dog clothes at www.sassydogfashions.com for easy identification. And you can put a microchip under its skin in case the tag is removed.

2. Taking your dog for regular checkups with a veterinary doctor. This will make your darling pet to be healthy as you can detect diseases at the early stage. Some studies have shown that dogs that take regular checkups with the vet doctor live longer and manifest fewer behavioral problems in their life time.

3. Placing your dog on a proper and regular diet. This makes them live longer and healthier just like it will do on human beings. What you give to an adult dog is not the same thing you give its puppies. You need to know when they need bones in their meals or when all what they need is soft food. When you get to some of these pet shops around, you can get to know other specifically formulated foods for dogs.

4. Taking an agility class with your dog. This is a fun active sport you can take with you dog and for sure, you will have a lots of fun. You guys can maneuver through weaves and tunnels, you can fly high over jumps and climb up an A-Frame. Most dogs happily partake in such training when given that chance and in a way helps their psyche, as well improve their mood as well as making both of you to connect in a brand new way.

5. Taking your dog out on a friendly vacation shows that you really care for your darling pet. When going to some places, one of the things you should consider is if the place will be a friendly environment to your four-legged pet. Take them out in your car and visit places where they play with other friendly dogs. They are social animals to a large extent, and they need treats once in a while outside their usual environment.

There are other ways you can really show your pets how you care for them but these five mentioned above can make your feel loved.

Any dog owner can clothe her dog in a coat without considering where or how the coat was produced but what’s really involved in a creating actual fashion for dogs? A fashion designer is someone who loves to study fashion trends, sketch designs, plan and select materials, and oversee the entire production process. It’s the same whether we’re producing dog clothes or human clothes. Did you know it takes many weeks if not months for a garment to go from the design stage until it reaches the store? 

Working with the arts takes inspiration that can come from many sources. If you’re creating high quality clothes from design to conception, you have to love studying fashion magazines and watching fashion shows to see the newest fashion trends in Paris, Milan and New York. Having lived in Paris, I am no stranger to  glamour and fashion–and I love to study it! I know what looks exotic, smart or elegant on a woman or a dog. My favorite human clothing brand is Chanel because Karl Lagerfeld designs the garments to be wearable and practical and they’re always en pointe. In fact, I love to include current fashion elements in my own custom dog clothing designs.

Second, I sketch a lot of garments and models of what I create. When the creative stamina is strong and 25 different dog coat design ideas pop into my head, you’ve got to store them somewhere so I sketch everything in books to be able to retrieve them later. From there I make final choices on form, shape, skirt length as well as button colors, wool textures, silk ribbon embellishments, etc. These sketches have notes, too. I often listen to remarks from people around me, clients, people who visit my website as well as my assistant. I take many of my garments to show the instructors at the Baum School of Art for their input, too. 

Premium dog clothes always start with professionally drawn patterns. Drawn by hand, each pattern and its alterations, are again, time consuming. After all, a quality custom dog garment is based on the quality of the pattern. It needs to be precise and symmetrical or your end result garment will be lacking style, precision and creativity.

After we call in the canine models to take their measurements, we make our last alterations to the dog clothing patterns. We then purchase all the supplies and I’m often running to the ends of the earth for all the perfect little materials and accents. Eventually we find find the most exquisite raw materials and everything we’ll need to make the cute little dog clothes, the personalized dog coat, puppy sling, dog dress or even a fancy harness. Every product of ours starts with a thought and a pattern!

After rounding up the dog clothes materials, we are ready to make the first prototype. Once we get the pet wear look we want, we construct the final garment and then decide on the final embellishments. Sometimes we choose to personalize or customize the dog garment with an embroidered name. This process often takes a lot of time and I often study some more or find inspiration to make these final touches. You can never rush design so being patient is important in producing a quality garment or look. Often I change my mind and have to buy more supplies and trim until I get it just right. A garment should never be over-decorated, but it should be correct. 

After production is complete, the item arrives in our online store and also to physical pet stores in our region. Here on our website and in this blog, the new client can be taught how hand-made pet apparel differs from a mass produced garment purchased from a big box pet store. Designing custom dog clothes is truly an art and involves passion and free flowing creative stamina. Everyone loves art and women love pretty things. You could see the premium quality in our photography and you could also get a sense of our product quality by studying what kind of dog clients shop here. We have been known to serve many sophisticated dog owners and the latest fashion trends and many elements of fashion design concepts are present in all our pet apparel. I really like that aspect of the canine fashion design because I am able to dress each pet dog (or cat) and incorporate my signature style into each of the pet garments—Sassy Dog Fashions creations that you will truly enjoy seeing on your pet.
