Doggie Holiday-wear FAQs

Sometimes the hussle-and-bustle of this time of year gets to be a bit much - but how does Fido feel about it? Does he enjoy it? Does it stress him out? How does he really feel about dressing up? We've done the research and here's what we can tell you about your furry family member's holiday.

How do you dress your dog up for Christmas?

Well, this answer is about as varied as their are the number of dogs! Some people just want to keep their best friend in his normal furry coat - while others like to accessorize. We hope this guide has given you a few ideas that you can talk over with your furry friend.

Is it OK to wear clothes on a dog

This is a question that is difficult to answer. If your dog doesn't mind the extra layer, then absolutely go for it! Depending upon where the two of you live - you just want to make sure that Rover doesn't get too hot or tangled up in his holiday finery - calling it a day. Also - watch out that he doesn't chew and swallow any of his new duds.

Is it OK for a dog to sleep in a sweater?

Again, this is really up to Fido! Some pups like the extra layer of clothing, while others hate it. If Fido seems fine with it - then it's a-ok to wear their jammies while sleeping.

Do pets really need clothes?

This is another tough one to answer. Generally speaking, no, they don't. But there are exceptions to most rules. If it is very cold out, your your dog just got a short haircut (or happens to be a hairless breed), they probably appreciate the extra layer. The same is true if is very hot out and you need to walk your pupper on the sidewalk. They actually may NEED a pair of shoes or booties so that they don't burn the pads on their feet.

What can dogs NOT have at Christmas?

Christmas time is a time where we as humans tend to indulge. Be careful not to let Rover indulge, or you may have a very sick pup on your hands. Just like any other time of the year - you need to watch out that Rover doesn't get into things he shouldn't. This includes:

  • Chocolate
  • Artificial Sugars (especially xylitol)
  • Cooked bones (believe it or not - most raw bones are fine)
  • Poinsettia leaves (very toxic)
  • Tinsel from your Christmas Tree
  • Don't let them chew on the lights or the branches!
  • Grapes and/or raisins
  • Rawhide chew toys (dangerous if swallowed)
  • Please note this is not an exhaustive list. If you think of something that is common at your house that I didn't think of - write to me and I'll add it to the list!

Is putting dogs in clothes abuse?

Well, remember when you had to get dressed up as a kid for special occasions? It might not have been your favorite thing to do (or maybe it was!), but it wasn't exactly abuse. Just be aware of your dog's stress level and don't push him over the edge. Let's face it - they're adorable without the clothes! Can't say that about most of us!

Do dogs get stressed at Christmas?

Just like people - some fuzzy friends adore the extra hussle-and-bussle and some hate it. You need to be aware of your doggo's tolerance to extra people, extra lights, extra celebrations and be sure to watch for a sign that he might done with all the EXTRAS!

Can dogs take pictures with Santa?

Many places enjoy having Rover join the crowd to meet the big guy - but it's always wise to call ahead and ask! Be sure to have a leash with you because their will probably be a lot of kids around - some of which are allergic or scared of your sweet mutt.

Can real Christmas trees affect dogs?

Just like humans, some furry best friends are more sensitive to pine than others. The needles can puncture or irritate their mouth and stomach if chewed and swallowed. They probably won't kill your pet - but can make him uncomfortable.
