    Things to consider…

    With one of the outfits from this list, your dog is bound to be the talk of the big day and the centre of attention!

    But while many dogs enjoy the fuss and don’t mind wearing clothing, if your dog is feeling stressed or uncomfortable, it’s important to take the outfit off so they can truly enjoy the festive fun.

    Look out for signs of distress including panting, scratching or pawing. If this is happening then take the outfit off straight away.

    As a rule, a Christmas outfit should not be worn for a long period of time. We recommend maybe just using it for the pictures.


    And from all of us here, we’re wishing you and your pooch a season full of joy and merriment!
