But is dressing up your dog just something that you like to do? Is there any benefit to your dog? It depends on the weather conditions of your area, the type of clothing and the reasons behind the purchases you mke.

A coat can be a very useful item of clothing for your dog. It’s meant to provide warmth in cold weather. But, just like for human clothing, there are designer labels and some incredibly impractical canine fashion. Here’s looking at Paris Hilton’s 00’s fashion choices for her Chihuahua Tinkerbell.

Apart from coats and sweaters other useful dog clothing items include dog t-shirts and dog sunglasses. These can look cute but serve a real purpose.
