Regardless of the constant arguments amongst dog lovers as to whether it is appropriate to doll up your doggie baby in dog clothing or not, one thing all dog lovers would certainly agree on is that a doggie baby is a part of the home; a member of the family. So, if other members of the family need clothes to stay home warm, especially during the cold winter months, then what’s wrong with a little extra padding to help your doggie baby stay warm and protected too?
And no, cold weather is not the only reason why you should dress up your doggie baby in dog clothing, there are also a few other cogent reasons why pet owners who dress up their pets in dog clothes, shouldn’t be considered vain or abusive.

During the hot summer months or any regular afternoon, your dog might be exposed to sunburns and this is why you should get your doggie baby some beautiful dog coats to protect them from the ultraviolet rays of the sun that may be harmful to them and cause damages.
