Things You Will Need

Before getting started in your dog dress adventures you are going to need to decide a couple of different things and get some supplies ready. You are going to need to:
  • Pick what type of dog dress you want. Do you want a dog wedding dress for a special occasion? Or how about a dog Christmas dress to bring in the new year? There are literally dozens of options when it comes to the style and theme of the dress you could be looking for. Decide what you want before you start looking.
  • Get together your measuring tape. You are going to need it in order to measure your dog for a good dress fit.

Step 1

The first thing that you are going to want to do is to get your dog's measurements. The three standard measurements are the length of your dog, their neck size, and their chest size. On some occasions a dress will also have a weigh measurement, but these are often unreliable and you should use the measurements listed on the garment for best fit.

Step 2

The next thing to do is to start looking at dresses. The internet is a great place to begin your search for dog costume dresses, summer dog dresses, and much, much more. It is great how easy it is to shop for things from the comfort of your own home.

If you still can't find a good item or you don't want to continue to sit around the house you can always head out to a pet store or a local dog boutique. They should have some dog dresses available, although it would be greatly limited when compared with what can be found online.

Step 3

Once you find a few dresses you like, take some time to shop around. Find the best price that you can get since saving money is always a plus. Take your time, there is no rush to buy a dress just because it is really cute.

Step 4

Finally, before making a purchase consider if you could make this dog dress yourself. Sometimes it is the cheapest thing to just make the dress yourself. This can be a challenge, but a fun one that will provide some satisfaction for you.
Dressing your dog in a dress should be a fun thing, so make sure that you and your pet are both comfortable with it. This will ensure a pleasurable experience for both of you. Good luck finding that great dog dress.
