Dog lovers come in all shapes and sizes – and so do the dogs they love. Some pet owners love dogs they can carry around, like Chihuahuas and Tea Cup Terriers. Others love dogs that are almost larger than their owners, like Great Danes and Newfoundlands. Breed and size are major factors when buying clothing and other gear for your puppy. When you’re striving to get the most bang for your buck, you want to make purchases your pet won’t outgrow too quickly. Take a look at the following guide. It helps you get a better idea of how big your puppy will get – and how fast.

Humans have a variety of tastes when it comes to the art that graces the walls of their homes and favorite museums. Some people love abstracts, some love oil paintings, some love modern art, and some love art deco. But, do the dogs you love have an understanding and appreciation of art and other beautiful things? Many people erroneously assume that because dogs see the world differently than we do, they can’t recognize or appreciate works of art.
While it’s true that dogs see the world in two dimensions and we see it in three, that doesn’t automatically exclude them from finding beauty in a variety of art forms. Similarly, while dogs do not possess the full color spectrum like people do, they do see, recognize, and understand colors like, yellows, blues, and a wide range of shades of gray. Additionally, dogs have much better peripheral vision than we do. How does all that affect the way they see art?
Dogs have been shown to react positively to photos and images of their owners. That, alone, indicates their ability to cognitively process images and react to them, so keep an open mind when it comes to exposing your favorite pooch to the world of art. Think of it this way – you probably enjoy watching your favorite television show on a wide screen, high-definition, full color TV screen. Your dog sees the exact same show on a curved screen (because of his enhanced peripheral vision) and with slightly fewer colors. Even though he might not see all the colors accurately, he still sees all the images and action.
Just like people appreciate different artworks and art forms, your dog appreciates beauty and art in slightly different ways than you. Dogs are intelligent animals. They have the ability to learn their name, respond to commands, and look totally innocent after tearing up your favorite shoes or sneaking food off your countertops. They can, in fact, see art and images, and appreciate them from their own point of view.
Dog Fur Sweaters? Yes, It’s A Thing – Here’s Why People Love Them
Humans love the feel of a warm, rich, luxe faux fur sweater – and so do the pets they cherish. Your dog will enjoy plush artificial fur fabrics like imitation cashmere every bit as much as you do. Even dog sweaters with simulated fur trim go a long way in making sure your beloved pet is more than merely fashionable. Dog sweaters protect your pet’s coat and, if your dog is a breed with short hair, it can also guard against brisk winds. A dog sweater can also protect the belly of breeds with short legs.
A parka or hoodie with a faux fur collar can offer protection for their shoulders, joints, and ears. Soft, thick, lavish imitation fur is the way to go when you want to safeguard your dog against the cold of winter and the rain, snow, and sleet that comes with it. A stylish dog sweater is more than an indulgence – it’s a necessity. Cozy sweaters are perfect for cool autumn night walks and chilly winter walks any time of the day.
What do you do to protect yourself and stay warm during cooler weather? You grab a sweater or hoodie to help your body insulate itself against the cold. Why would you do any less for your pet? A dog sweater that fits her well will be just as welcome to her.
There’s always going to be a debate about whether or not dogs need coats on top of their coats. The truth is that pets shiver in the cold and react to it in much the same way as their humans do. You clothe yourself properly when you venture out into the cold, right? Go ahead and indulge the pet you love in our Luxy Fur Sweater featured here. You’ll make your dog the poshest puppy in town with this sumptuous faux fur sweater that warm their coats and warm your heart.
Many people think of coats as mere accessories for spoiled pets or as an extension of the fashion sense of indulgent pet owners. The truth is that your fur babies have an actual need for a coat or sweater. Many pet parents help their dogs brave cold winter weather with a dog coat or dog sweater. Keep reading for a few good reasons you should get one for the pet your love.
Small dogs like chihuahuas and corgis benefit greatly from a protective coat or sweater during cold weather. Because their legs are short, their bellies are more apt to touch the cold ground or brush against high curbs, or rub against cold, wet snow.
The same is true of short haired breeds like greyhounds, terriers, and basenjis. These breeds don’t have as much fur as long haired, thick, or shaggy breeds, and the added warmth of a dog coat will help keep them dry and healthy. Also, older dogs with weakened immune systems and achy hips and joints will love the extra layer that helps them maintain their body temperature when venturing outdoors.
If your dog is a fashion hound, they’ll want more than one coat. Their fashion choices, like yours, may be dictated by more than outside temps. Choose outer wear for your dog that fits well. That’s a key to providing maximum protection. The dog sweater or dog coat should be snug but not tight, leave your pets legs free to romp and roam, and allow your pet to relieve himself in his normal manner. Make sure to choose one that is easy to put on and take off. That will just make dressing and undressing your fur baby easier and more fun for both of you.
Dog coats and sweaters are more than adorable outer wear. They’re a cold weather necessity that keeps your dog as warm and snug as your outer wear keeps you.
Walking your dog and maintaining control of the walk and the pet are essential parts of dog ownership. Collars and leashes are the usual method of doing so. Pet parents have long looked for more comfortable alternatives. We’ve heard your concerns and preferences and have come up with the EasyGo Harness. Made of a variety of plush material, our soft harnesses are easy and safe for your pet to wear.
Get out your tape measure and measure your dog’s chest and torso. Then look at our convenient sizing charts to find the perfect fit. Next, measure your dog’s personality – and yours, too. These durable harnesses come in so many styles, colors, and patterns that you’ll be tempted to purchase more than one. Choose the ones that fit your pets character and your budget and you’ll both be happy campers.
Your pet’s health, happiness, and comfort are your chief concerns. Our buckle-free designs are easy for your pet to simply step into. That makes it much easier to secure than the traditional dog collar. If your dog bristles at having a collar around his neck, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how he happily steps into his new harness. We can’t emphasize enough how easy it is to get your pet into our harness. Check out these YouTube clips that show our happy customers demonstrating how easy it is for dogs to step into them. Each one comes with a matching lead for your leash as well.
It’s much easier to gain control of your animal when the leash and harness safely encompass his torso, rather than pull at his neck. The slight choking sensation a collar and leash can create can make the most well-trained, well-behaved dog fight against it. You can eliminate any choking hazard or other discomfort with a soft, full torso harness.
Soft harnesses are also a godsend when your pet is recovering from an illness or surgery and wearing an e-collar. E-collars make it extremely difficult to attach a leash to the neck. Our EasyGo soft harnesses make that struggle a thing of the past by securing safely to the pet’s torso and not interfering with the e-collar at all. Easy to put on and easy to wear, they’re tangle-free and just plain cute!
