To many people who keep dogs in house think that it is hard to let dog be used to wearing clothes. So do me. I keep a doggie at home about 6 months earlier, since weather is getting colder and colder now, and he is small and has short fur by the way, so I purchased him dog clothing. However, every time I dress him up, he acts strange and struggle to his new clothes.
I believe that many of you would have the same experience as mine, but I am not going to give up, I have tried over and over again and recently, my dog has been accustomed to wear clothes. No matter what reasons you may want to put your dog in clothes, you can teach your dog to be comfortable in his new clothes just like me and my dog. Here is how to teach your pooch to be comfortable with clothes.
Start to dress up your dog early and simple. Dogs are more likely to tolerate clothes if they are taught from puppyhood that it’s simple a part of life. So, you’d better train your puppy to wear clothes when he was 3 or 4 months old. 6 months is a little late for me to train my dog, but it still work only if you combined use of patience and positive reinforcement training. Even if your dog missed early puppyhood training, it’s not too late to train him to be accustomed to move around with some clothes on. But you need to pick up some simple and loose clothes when you train him. Since if you start to dress up your dog with some tight or ‘strange’ clothes (your dog will feel like an alien with some special clothes), he will have a bad impression to the clothes.
In addition, you can start dressing your dog up with collar or scarf, this little thing is better than letting him dress clothing at the very beginning, by the way, Christmas is coming, how about dress your dog up in a pet dog Christmas scarf, so simple and comfortable.
