I view it like how mom's dress their children. I might fake fun of you and your dog, but it's all your choice. Lol. That being said I can't wait to dress batman up as...batman for Halloween this year! Already found the costume. :)

I think a little sweater is really good for thin-skinned breeds (chihuahua, whippet, italian greyhound...) in the winter. I think if you dress your dog up, you should always remember that your dog is a dog, not a furry little person, and to stop if the dog is very uncomfortable.

Unless its for warmth/sun protection, halloween or a parade. I find it stupid.
I have to agree with this. It's cool and getting nice winter coats or rain coats for dogs is sweet especially when you can find a cute one. But I don't see the need to dress them if its not necessary.

For practical purposes, warmth or rain protection, I have a few things for Molly. And because every girl needs a nice winter coat, we have this little number :D:

No way! I'd never, EVER dress my dog up, it's SOOO dumb! I can't believe anyone would do such a thing!


















:)


Honestly? If the dog has no problem with it, I fail to see how it's anyone business, and there are far more important things to worry about than whether an obviously well loved and care for dog is wearing a cute sweater or dress.

I personally don't dress up are dogs, only for Halloween, or winter coats. I do think the dogs that are dressed up are so cute, but I don't feel the need to dress mine up.

While I do think it's harmless fun, and I'm all for dressing up for fun occasions, one of my neighbors has a little Westie who wears a different dress every day, and I think that's just plain weird. But whatever.

I dress Hitch in jackets and blankets when he feels too cold. But I don't dress him up other than that. (maybe halloween also)

The only reason that I don't dress him up is because he doesn't look like a dog that I should dress up. If I had a smaller dog I might.

I don't see the point in costumes and dresses on an everyday basis, but I see no harm in it either.

My dogs only wear functional clothing, but I do tend to get the cute stuff when choosing new clothes. If I need a knitted sweater, why not get the one that looks like winnie the pooh?

I don't see anything wrong with it as long as the dog is comfortable. I personally only plan to dress my pup up for Halloween and when the winter comes around we will see how she does in the cold.

Aidan likes wearing his coat and sweaters. He refuses to go out in heavy rain unless he has his waterproof coat on, in fact. This winter, he will wear boots and a hat, too. I expect last winter to have been a lovely exception to the two very snowy winters we've had here.
