In the winter time if you have a hairless or shorthaired dog I think its a good idea to put something on them when out for a walk. Animals can get frost bit just like we can. So I think in the winter time definstely but otherwise no.

My chihuahua has hoodies for when it gets colder. He's such a skinny little thing. My chiweenie has a sweater but he's not fond of it so he never wears it, no matter what. He's got more meat on him though so he doesn't get cold as fast. They're spoiled inside dogs anyways, though.

I agree that clothing makes little sense unless you have a hairless dog and it's -15 C or colder / windy outside. That being said, my golden retriever loved to wear a warm jacket when he was quite old and wasn't that active outside

Well, it totally depends on habitat of dog. If it extreme winter conditions, then certainly dog clothes from Cross Peak Products - Outdoor Dog Gear & Dog Supplies for Active Lifestyles helps to protect them and provides a cover from cool breezes. I live in North of Toronto. I think everyone is aware of frozen weather of Canada. I have noticed that many people take care of their pets from cold air from warm clothes. I just love to see my Jasper wearing clothes; he looks more cute and adorable.

Themain benefits of a dog clothes are these:
§Clothesmake them neat and clean.
§Clothesmake them organize
§Clothesmake them secure and comfortable from weather conditions.
§Clothespresent the cute and beautiful.

It is very important for the dog to becomfortable, relaxed and happy when wearing a piece of clothing to him. If youlive in a place where the temperatures can be extremely cold, clothing your dogis a great way to help them keep warm. Make sure the piece of clothing fitswell and that the texture does not make your dog feel scratchy or irritated.Check some good dog cloths collection here http://www.crosspeakproducts.com.

My dogs have thick furs so there's really no need for me to dress them up. Other owners dress their pets to make them look more adorable. However, for dogs with thin furs and living in colder areas, they do need clothes for extra warmth, especially in the winter.

I think it's not necessary. We should offer them the most natural living environment without forcing them to adjust humans' life.

I have never put clothes on my animals but I can say the cuteness does make it tempting at times

I have a lab at home and he has enough energy to keep himself warm by running around and driving us mad . But I don't believe in dressing up dogs, I think most of them would feel uncomfortable dressed up.

Hi! New member here...

Just chiming in to say, for some breeds clothing is absolutely necessary!

I have a very special, hairless, Chinese Crested who would suffer without his cozy attire.

I think that if in winter you have a sufficiently low temperature in winter, then clothes are just necessary for small children. not adapted to winter rocks. I recently found an excellent article http://mypoodle.info/care/winter-care/ how to take care of my dog in the winter, I think you will also be interested to read. My dog has clothes for rainy weather, there are clothes for the winter, but in the summer I don't wear a dog.
