Keep Your Dog Looking and Feeling Cool During Summer with Fashion Forward Dog Clothes

Some people think dog clothes are just for keeping your pup warm during the winter, but your precious pooch needs protection during the summer too! Just like humans, dogs can get skin cancer if not properly covered while out in the sun. Luckily there are a lot of hot new dog fashions that will keep your fur baby looking AND feeling cool during the summer.

When going out into the sun for long periods of time, consider covering your pup with a cool t-shirt. A bonus perk is if you have a dog suffering from an allergy, a shirt will stop him or her from licking and pawing at the affected area. Louisdog offers a large variety of fashion forward, high-end top-fashion tees as well as low-key vintage-looking tees. Wooflink takes an edgy turn and shows off a rocker sense of style with rock-and-roll dog t-shirts featuring skulls, studs and rhinestones for punk rocker pooches. Wooflink also offers a number of light-weight cotton fabric choices perfect for warm or hot weather. Last but not least, Juicy Couture has a great selection of puppy polo shirts and crystal rhinestone embellished dog tees that will make any dog the life of the block party.

If your little lady prefers something more feminine, darling dog dresses are all the rage right now. Dog designers Wooflink, Louisdog, Juicy Couture, and Ruff Ruff Couture all have a wide selection of dresses in their collections perfect for a summer picnic or warm summer night at the beach.

Speaking of the beach, there are great styles for dogs that love to swim too! Brands including Juicy Couture and Little Lily offer a diverse assortment of swimsuits for dogs, and you can also find many styles of dog swim trunks online. If you are taking your dog out on a boat or surfing (yes! dogs can surf!) it’s essential that you get your dog a swimming life vest too.

If your fur baby isn’t the type to wear clothes or if you’re in the hottest dog days of summer, why not just stick with accessories? Dog accessories are the perfect way to express style, fashion and attitude without the heavy layers (your pooch is already wearing a fur coat, after all). Sizzling dog accessories for the summer include dog jewelry, collar charms, paw wear to protect paws against hot sidewalks, cute color-coordinating collars and sunglasses. Designer Susan Lanci’s collection includes a large range of luxurious ultrasuede dog beds, harnesses, and hair bows embellished with high end Swarovski crystals. Ultrasuede is stain resistant, very breathable, and easy to clean.

The last thing you want to do is overheat your dog by putting too many clothes on them during the summer, so it’s always important to keep a close eye on your pup and monitor his or her comfort level. With the help of Cool Vest, a light weight thin vest worn over your dog’s chest, your dog will be able to stay cool, dry, and be able enjoy their summer walks and playdates! If you see your dog panting excessively, drooling, acting fatigued, anxious or wobbly, he or she may be overheating. If your dog shows any signs of overheating immediately take off any clothing they may be wearing, take him or her to a cool, shaded area, and get them cold, fresh water to drink. Heatstroke is considered an emergency that must be treated without delay, so if your dog continues to show symptoms take them to a veterinary hospital ASAP.

Be safe in the sun and keep your dog looking and feeling cool during the summer with fashion forward dog clothing from the hottest dog clothes designers, including Juicy Couture, Louisdog, Ruff Ruff Couture and Wooflink!
