Q: Do you Dress up your pets?

Do you dress your dog or cats up? Is it wrong to dress them up? I think they like it. Especially my Tibetian Terrier, MIRU, she loves it! But one day at the park, this guy approached me and asked, "why do you dress your dog up like that?" She was just wearing a tank top, not a costume or anything? What do you think?

The only thing that I think may be acceptable would be if your pet is cold and NEEDS a sweater or coat. I hate seeing someone playing "dress up" with their beautiful animals, like it was a doll. Voting in Pet Wars, I always tend to vote for whichever is not dressed up. Let them be natural and show them off for their beauty.

I dress up my female cat. She looks so cute, I can't help it.

Dogs wear their own clothing. It's called fur. Why cover up the beauty your dog comes with? I think they look ridiculous dressed up.

As much as I love my dog,He is a dog and dog's should not wear clothes,and I dont think they should be carted around in doggy strollers either.Dogs need to walk and excersize not be toated around like babies.If my dog comes to me pesonally and tells me he wants to wear a shirt or pants or anything else then I will let him.But I dont see that happening any time soon.

a bandana around their neck is k it takes the place of a colloar but to dress them up in costumes? did you ever think that they may be embarrased just like we ar in silly costumes. we have a choice . if the could tell us i think they would say that they are only doing it because they love us

I don't see anything wrong with it IF the pet likes it. I've seen pets that perk up when they get their little "outfit" on and some that went bonkers! The only thing that I put on my dogs, besides their collars, are bandanas. They are all med. to extra large dogs (Saint Bernard/Great Pyrenees, Blue Heeler, Aussie-mix, and bulldog/lab mix). I don't think they'd like being "dressed up"...they'd probably think they were too cool to dress up since they are "working" breeds! LOL!!! I did put a sweater on my Heeler once. I had to have something to keep her bandage on and her not chew it off. She "tolerated" the sweater, but was VERY glad when she never saw it coming at her again! Anyways, if an owner wants to dress up their pet and if the pet likes it, go for it! (But I stress, ONLY if the pet likes it!) I do however draw the line at wigs on the pets though. I do think that's a bit much!

I would never dress up my cats, even if they would allow it. The have beautiful fur coats, why would anyone want to cover that up?

I love my dogs very much, I'd have to say as much as I love my kids, but dressing them up in people clothes is not good for the dog. After all they are dogs, not people. They have certain needs as dogs that we have to fulfill in order to be mentally stable.

I just think that it just depends on the owner. Some people dont think that its that big of a deal, while others think that you shouldn't even put on a cute little hat. I personally think that animals look cute in clothes.
