Dog Costumes

Dog costumes are a fun way to celebrate holidays. Whether it’s the fourth of July, or Halloween, costumes for dogs are very popular and appropriate for pups of all sizes and ages. Of course, everyone wants his or her dog to win the unofficial best costume prize, and we think the best costumes are the ones that draw from your dog’s size or unique personality. Sometimes the funniest costumes are the ones that poke fun of your dog’s small or large size. For instance, a tiny Chihuahua looks extra hilarious in an eye catching red devil costume, while a large (normally intimidating-looking) Doberman will look adorable in a cute bunny or fairy costume. Princess costumes for dogs are a popular choice for girl dogs of all sizes, and they bring out the diva in every canine. Superhero costumes bring out the bold side in male dogs, and they love the attention a cute costume brings them! If you are looking for a gender-neutral costume, consider a bumblebee, monster, or even a gnome! This years new Wizard of Oz series are sure to be a hit (we especially love Tin Man and Dorothy!) We suggest ordering your special festive wear weeks ahead of time to make sure you have the perfect fit. When you receive your order, don’t wait till the day of the event to put the costume on your pup, have them try it on right away to make sure you don’t need a smaller or larger size. If it’s your dog’s first time wearing any type of clothing, make sure to give him or her lots of positive reinforcement to make their experience as pleasant as possible- some extra treats will do the trick! ;)

Tiffany Blue Dog Collection

Posted by Glamour Mutt on 6/16/2012 to Dog Collars
There’s something about that little blue box with crisp white ribbon that sends our hearts aflutter. Lucky for us, Tiffany Blue has become a popular color this season. Dog Diggin Design’s Sniffany Bed is the perfect item for your pampered pup to lounge around on. Keeping with the Tiffany Box theme, the Sniffany Box toy and the Sniffany Bone feature exciting squeakers to keep your dog entertained for hours. 

Sometimes known as Robin Egg Blue, Tiffany Blue is a beautiful shade of cyan, which is one of the very few colors suitable for both boy and girl dogs. Susan Lanci Designs offers dozens of vibrant colors, including their Tiffy Blue, which has become a top seller. Susan’s Gift Box collection includes a step-in harness and classic style harness with Tiffy Blue ultrasuede, topped off with a white stardust ultrasuede bow with a glimmering jumbo heart Swarovski Crystal. Lucky for us, all of Susan’s designs are available in this beautiful color (even the hair bows!) Our favorite design in this color is Susan Lanci’s Tail Bow Heart Collar, which can also be used as a necklace if you want to show off the crystal at the back of the neck. If you’re looking to add just a splash of Tiffy to your dog’s wardrobe, check out the carrier blanket, which is also perfect lap blanket for your little lap dog! 

The newest Tiffany delight comes from Mimi Green. Mimi’s crochet flower collars are a big hit with small and large dogs alike. The hand-crocheted flower can be added to your dog’s current collar, for a touch of fancy. The Tiffany Cupcake flower has gorgeous blue petals and a lemon yellow center. The flower looks especially fetching on the Louie and Murphy Dog Collars- also from Mimi Green!

Dog Days of summer: Part 2

Posted by Glamour Mutt on 6/5/2012 to Dog Clothes
A dog’s summer wardrobe should be fun, sporty and lightweight. Dogs love playing in water during hot summer days. Whether you live by the beach, lake or have a swimming pool, keeping your dog cool is important for his/her health. Dogs only have sweat glands in areas that are not covered with fur (such as the paws and nose), which is why they pant to keep cool, as heat is lost by evaporation. If your dog is swimming in shallow or still water, then a cute little dog bikini or trunk shorts are a fun fashionable choice. For deeper water we recommend a life vest for both small and large dogs. EzyDog life vests contain 50% more floatation material and are ergonomically designed to ensure your dog’s comfort and safety. Buoyant materials are especially important when there are choppy waves at the beach or lake. 

It’s a fact that dogs weigh more when they are wet- the more fur they have, the more weight they are carrying around with them. While this added weight might not seem significant, many small dogs in particular are at a disadvantage when swimming due to the added weight (as the percentage of weight increase is higher, especially for fluffy teacup breeds!). Along with buoyant materials, a small set of steps in the pool can significantly reduce the strain on a small dog. Small dogs are also prone to hypothermia, which is why a neoprene wet suit is the perfect solution for keeping your dog warm when there is an occasional undercurrent of chilly water at the beach, even on a hot summer day. Neoprene is also buoyant, making it the ideal material for your dog’s wetsuit. 

When your dog is ready to end their beach/pool/lake excursion, it’s time to dry off! To dry your dog off quickly and efficiently, with no-stink left behind, we recommend a Microfiber Doggy Swim Towel. These towels act like a shammy so you can wring it dry and re-use it right away!
