Who’s to say that just because you’re on all fours means you can’t have rockin style? Dogs are people, too, right? Well at least they think they are. Dogs are our companions, our lifetime buddies, and they deserve to be just as stylish (if not more as their owners.
Dog apparel is all for the amusement of the owner, a.k.a, the person buying all the clothes! Fashion Forward women who own dogs care about their appearance just as they do their own, and in turn groom their dogs, keep them on good diets, and if your dog fits the type, you dress that little doggie up!
The pet industry is never down for these loving furry friends, which is why many brands today will even consider similar inspired clothes for dogs! If you go into a pet store there’s so many options for leashes and collars as well. You have your basics, but many are including fashion items as well, knowing people will buy it.
According to the American Pets Product Association (APPA):
While most owners say they do not spoil their pets, they certainly don’t skimp on them either. In tough economic times, people will find a way to manage their expenses in effort to continue to provide for pets. Although some spend modestly on their pets, a large group of Americans are still willing to spend a little extra on trendy outfits, brand-name treats and organic foods because pets are considered important members of the family and they deserve the best! As we have “humanized” our pets in so many ways, it is important for us to reward them in meaningful human terms rather than just pet terms.
