    I thought it was a dumb idea too. But then I was at a friend’s house who’s lap dog always had a shirt on. Well the dog was rolling around on the ground beneath me, and his shirt came off. So I picked the shirt up and tried to put the shirt back on the dog. The dog about jumped into the shirt and had a big smile on his face after he got his shirt back on. I barely had to do anything.

    For whatever reason, some of these dogs really love wearing clothing. Maybe they think it makes them more like people? I don’t know.

    THunder jackets help dogs feel secure. Maybe clothes work the same way, only without the thunder?

    Ive had dogs who LOVED wearing a shirt. For the record, I have never bought a shirt for a dog. It’s okay for your dog to wear something as long as your wife or girlfriend made the purchase. Guys who buy clothes for their pets? Very questionable behavior.

    I’ve never had a dog that didn’t hate having stuff put on them. And I’ve always had dachshunds, mostly minis, as it’s a family tradition, so size wasn’t a thing. My last one had a skin issue for a bit where her hair fell out mostly and the vet told me to put a “coat” on her when going outside as it was winter. I bought one and she would run and hide every time she saw it. If I managed to get it on her she’d roll around until she got it off.

    UGA does look good in his jersey though.

    Some breeds are very susceptible to cold weather as well.

    We put neoprene vests on our retrievers sometimes while duck hunting. The vests have extra flotation and keep em warm...

    My wife puts an "Outward Hound" flotation jacket on the Aussie when she takes him paddle boarding.
    It is easier than putting clothes on cats though.

    I never have put clothes on my dogs, but I think I'm going to start putting a red bandanna on my dog when it's game day.

    [EDIT] -- Thanks for the idea, @Catfish

  • MIghtydawgMIghtydawg Posts: 654 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    What about uga?

    You can get a UGA bandanna pretty cheap, but red would work great too!

    Well now I have to backtrack. I did buy a camo neoprene vest for my dog, and a hunter orange chest protector for my bird dog to protect from stubble and briars. I also made cordura booties to protect her feet when running her in areas with cockleburrs and wheat stubble. So my rule is revised: It's okay for a guy to buy clothes for his dog if the purpose is for hunting or some other "toxic" manly activity. A man buying his dog a sweater, scarf, or something of that ilk is still very questionable behavior.
