Dog clothes were first used by the military to protect their faithful four-legged companions in the same way that armor and uniforms helped to protect the soldiers fighting next to them. Military dog clothes were not created for fashion but to protect these brave and dedicated dogs from the weather and even attacks.

One of the most famous military dogs was Stubby who was adopted by an infantry unit in 1917 and went to World War I with the unit. He was a highly decorated dog even receiving a Purple Heart. A group of French women made him a “uniform” to display all his metals.

The next group to use dog clothing was police and firefighters. These uniforms were not only used for protection but to distinguish one group from the other. Next in line were Seeing Eye dogs and other helper dogs whose uniforms make it easy to identify the owner as someone with some type of disability.

Moving forward to the 21stcentury, buying dog clothes is as common as buying clothing for yourself. Dog clothes still keep your pet warm and dry as well as protect it from cuts and scrapes, however, style is foremost when it comes to selecting dog clothing. There are many styles available such as T-shirts, jerseys, tank tops, sweaters, bandanas, winter outfits and even outfits for Halloween, weddings, birthdays, sports and many other special occasions AND Barking Barb is you connection to all that is dog clothes and more.
