Often there is the question: Do dogs actually need clothing? They have fur that protects them and keeps them warm! That is true, but there are situations and life phases where using dog clothing is sensible.
First of all, our pet dogs live together with us in heated rooms. This alone can lead to them being more susceptible to bad weather and the cold.
Along with functionality, the right fit should always be paramount for choosing dog clothing. To accommodate differences in built, numerous different cut variants have been developed.
A coat or pullover that fits well provides sufficient freedom to move, does not rub, does not constrict, is neither too tight nor too large and does not slip. Only then can a dog move freely in the clothing and feels happy as a consequence. Therefore, dog clothing should always be tried on and adjusted individually. A comfortable fit should not only be checked when the dog is standing, but also when the dog is moving!
There are different kinds of dog clothing depending on the pet and the purpose. Along with protection against the cold, wind and rain, different fits play an important role as well as the option of combining them with a collar or a harness.
The majority of the TRIXIE product range has a regular fit making it suitable for the majority of dogs (e.g. Poodles, Border Collies, Dalmatians, Parson Russell Terriers). For slim pets we have the category slim (e.g. Pinschers, Sight Hounds, Setters). A coat in a wide fit is suitable for wider breeds (Beagles, Bullterriers, Labradors).
