Millions of people love dogs. Most of the people own dogs and make them a part of their family. Just like other members, the dog owners take good care of the dog by regularly grooming them, providing the best food, taking them on vacation, and dressing them up. 

Well, the last few words would have caught your attention – Dressing up the dog in dog clothes. According to a survey, it was found that 56% of the dog owners love to dress their dog in beautiful dog clothes whereas 33% were against it, and for some, it doesn’t matter as they dress up the dog only on occasions. Dog clothes are one of the most important things that some people get wrong. With regard to dog clothes, there are certain misconceptions prevailing in people’s minds. So let’s check them out and understand where they are going wrong.

#1 Dressing Up Your Dog In Dog Clothes:

There are some people who think that making your dog wear clothes is very cruel. And this is one of the most important things where they are going wrong.  The dog clothes provide protection to your little ones from extreme weather conditions. Moreover, the clothes protect the natural dog’s coat from getting infections and keep the dirt away from the body. The people who think that putting on dog clothes on their beloved pet is torture must understand that the clothes provide them protection and not harm them. During scorching heat, it prevents the dog from burning sensation, in winters the clothes provide warmth. When you provide them high-quality dog clothes, they can freely play. The most important thing to be taken care of is that dog clothes are comfortable. You can get soft fabric and comfortable dog clothes from Sassydogfashions.

#2 Dog Clothes Make The Dog Anxious:

Another thing that people generally get wrong is that they think dog clothes make their pets very anxious. Once again you need to understand that dog clothes do not make them anxious but help in reducing anxiety. If you are a dog lover, you might have come across dogs who are pretty susceptible to anxiety. This anxiety may be due to several reasons. With specially designed dog vests, you can help in soothing the dog. Dog vests provide them mild pressure, which makes them feel comfortable. It feels as if the owner is hugging them. Dog vests are also essential as they protect a dog from anxiety-induced self-harm, such as excessive biting or licking.

#3 Dressing Up Dogs On Special Occasion:

According to a survey, it was reported 22% of the dog owners think that dressing up the dog in a wide range of clothes is quite demeaning and against the dog’s dignity. Well, it is not true at all. Just like every person feels elated when they are given special attention, it is the same with the dogs. They feel special when the dog owners get them new clothes on festivals or any other special occasion.

#4 With Dog Clothes You Can Bond With Your Dog:

It is quite understood that your dogs cannot wear the clothes on their own, which means you would be involved in the entire dressing up process. You would gently guide them to put on their clothes easily. 

The process helps in building a strong bond between the dog and the owner. Moreover, dogs would love to get undivided attention from their owners in the form of stroking, rubbing, petting. When you dress up your dog regularly, they would start relating clothing with positive emotions and will learn to love their adorable dog clothes.

Summary:

These were some of the most important aspects that people get wrong about dog clothes. Although you are dressing up your dog, one thing that you must always be careful about is selecting the best dog clothes. You must be aware of the dog’s coat and choose dog clothes that your pet finds soft and comfortable. They should feel happy to be dressed up and not run away from it. You can get a wide range of high-quality dog clothes at Sassydogfashions. They are the best and provide premium dog clothes in bright colors and soft cotton fabric. You can choose the one that suits your dog.

Shedding is a normal process in dogs. Dogs lose damaged and old hair through shedding. Health, season and breed type can vary the amount and frequency of hair that is shed. Some dogs develop thick coats in the winter and lose them in the spring. I know you love your dog, but you would not love the shedding. You can reduce shedding in your dog and keep down the amount of damaged hair scattered in and around your home.

The following points will let you know how to reduce shedding in dogs.

  • Give Healthy Food to Your Dog

Make sure the food you feed to your dog has good nutrition. You need to consider giving quality dog foods that can reduce shedding. Do not consider the cost factor alone, but also consider your dog’s health. The expensive dog foods can be made of good quality ingredients and can supply good nutrition to your dog. You can give occasional human food or snacks for your dog. Pay a visit to the pet shop to buy good food for your pet.

  • Brush Your Dog Regularly

How many of you do this? I know only a few dog owners. The more you brush your dog, the more hair you will remove and this can avoid shedding with your dog. Fall and spring are the shedding seasons of dogs. During this season, you need to brush your dog as many times as possible, but at least twice a week. If your pet has a double coat, you need to use the grooming tool to remove the damaged or loose hair.

  • Give Omega 3 Fatty Acids

No matter the kind of dog food you are giving to your dog, make sure it has omega 3 fatty acids. You can ask your vet to suggest the best dog food that contains omega 3 fatty acids. On the other hand, you can simply visit the pet store to buy the dog supplements that contain omega 3 fatty acids. The omega 3 fatty acids can provide numerous health benefits and especially healthy skin to your pet, which can reduce shedding.

  • Give Regular Bath to Your Pet

The best way to reduce shedding in dogs is to give regular baths to dogs. You need to use dog shampoo and conditioner for bathing your dog. You need to brush your dog thoroughly before giving a bath. Brushing can help you remove as much hair as possible before giving a bath to your dog. Your dog needs to be bathed at least once a month.

  • Consider Clipping

You need to clip your dog if your dog has a thick, profuse coat that sheds frequently or you reside in hot summer or warm climate. You need to take your dog to the professional groomer to clip its hair. This can reduce the amount of hair that sheds.

You can follow these steps to keep your house free of pet hair. If you have carpeting on the floor, you should change it, as your dog’s hair will stick to it.

Do you own a pet? Then you’ll relate to everything we’re going to talk about.
There are so many things about dogs that only a pup parent can relate & understand, some of them are “oh-so-adorable” & some of them are disgusting but those won’t matter to you at all.

Read out to learn about 5 things – every pet owner can relate to.

1. You’ll address them with a new nickname everyday

As a pet owner you put a lot of effort & time to choose your pet name. For example, we prepared an excel sheet before choosing a name for our pets & models, Bella & Reve. But their nicknames are however a total breakdown of the English language. Those are often made in such a way that it would sound weird but lovable like mossey moo moo.

Here are Sassy Dog Fashions’ favorite names for Dogs:

  1. Sasha
  2. Toby
  3. Bo
  4. Lucy
  5. Princess
  6. Alex
  7. Daisy
  8. Sparky
  9. Dusty
  10. Sam

2. Their hair is everywhere but you’re least concerned

After years of being a pet parent, you’re now aware that every corner, every cloth in the closets of your house is covered with dog hair…no, don’t even deny that, we know. You’ll find yourself cleaning those hair follicles often.

Our advice on cleaning dog hair:

  1. Buy light color clothes
  2. Have a lint roller in your house
  3. Use a damp sponge or rubber gloves to clean furniture
  4. Use a window squeegee for carpet cleaning
  5. Use a roll of tape for loose pet hair

3. You skip your plans because they fall asleep

Tell us how many times did you cancel your parties, dates & what not just because your pet fell asleep in your arms and he is so adorable to be disturbed. Also, it can be the perfect excuse if you don’t want to attend the party & it will be considered as a valid one so no worries.

4. You celebrate every milestone

You’ll celebrate even the smallest milestone which is related to them, whether it is bringing him home for the first time or the first time you took them out for dinner.

We have made a list of 8 milestones to celebrate with your pet.

  1. The first time you bring them home
  2. Completion of core vaccinations
  3. The first time he recognized his name
  4. When he finished his training
  5. When your dog started socializing
  6. Your first trip with your Pet
  7. First successful leash walk
  8. Celebrating birthday (So obvious)

5. You’ll not need an alarm clock

You’ll no longer need an alarm clock to wake up. Your dog will wake you up every morning at the same time. Tell us would you like to wake up to the annoying alarm tone or your dog’s woof woof? Seeing your pet’s face first thing in the morning would be a great way to start your day, isn’t it?

Can you relate to any one from the above? Or all of the above? Do you know any other relatable things that you can relate as a pet owner? Do let us know in the comment section below.
