i always put on clothes on Sport, but i always wonder does he like it? Do dogs even like wearing clothes? I seem to forget that he is a D.O.G, and they are slightly different from humans. We have to wear clothes, they dont its natural and in their nature to wear their fur and thats it. What do you think?

my dogs HATE clothes of any kind, but in the winter they know if they go out they must wear a jacket. they have no choice, but to just dress them because it's cute as much as I like it I know they dont, so no they dont. I have a friend that bought her dog a 2 piece bathing suit, really whats the point, it would just weigh her down in the water and her dog looks stupid.

I have seen 1 or 2 dogs that seem to like it, but I believe in general dogs do not like wearing clothes. There are some that certainly tolerate it better than others. They especially seem to dislike anything on their feet.

My guess is that dogs HATE wearing clothes, especially if the clothes are tight and/or restrictive. Clothes that interfere with their walking have to disliked. If you have ever seen some of the AFVs (or other videos) featuring dogs with clothes and/or booties on, then you know that the dogs are almost always trying to remove the same.

I imagine dogs can learn to TOLERATE wearning clothes, but I really don't think they WANT to.
