If you love to hear live music and you also love dogs, then you’ll be delighted to know that you can marry these two interests together. If your favorite band is in town and is holding a concert then there is no need for you to leave your fur baby at home. If it’s am outdoor concert, then you can definitely bring her along. You just need to make sure that dogs are allowed at the concert venue and that the show itself is dog-friendly. Now the next thing you need to know is how to dress your dog up for a concert. Before are some dog clothing tips you should do.
Choose a comfortable outfit
When you are shopping for dog clothing, the first thing that you need to consider is comfort. This means that the outfit should fit right. It must not be too tight that it constricts his movement or even breathing. And it also must not be too loose that it gets in the way whenever he walks or runs. Also, you should consider leaving the bottom bare so he can do his business easily when nature calls. You can also have your dog wear a diaper during the whole duration of the concert. Keep in mind that your dog will probably be in an uncomfortable position already by bringing him to a concert. His clothes should not bother him at the very least.
Make sure that the outfit is safe for dogs
There are many fancy dog clothes available on the market. Some even have perfume or cologne so dogs can smell good. The problem is, some of these dog clothes contain chemicals that may be harmful to dogs. The best way is to keep things simple. Just get clothes that are not scented. If you really want your dog to smell good, then just buy him a separate perfume that you know are safe for dogs. And if you can, get clothes that are made with organic fabric so you can be sure that they are chemical-free.
Choose clothes that are durable
When dogs become stressed they tend to bite and chew any object that they see. You need to welcome the possibility that your dog may get stressed during the concert, especially if it’s is the first time. It’s going to be noisy in there and it will be filled with unfamiliar faces. When your dog becomes dressed during the concert, there’s a big possibility that he will bite an chew his clothes. You need to make sure that the clothes will be able to survive the punishment. It’s better to invest in clothes that will last rather than in an outfit that will be useful only once.
Accessories as an option
If your dog is not yet ready to wear a full-blown outfit, then maybe you can have him wear accessories first. Maybe you can start with a hat or a headband. A collar that can make him look like a punk rocker is another cool option.
