Dog 4-leg Sweaters, Jackets and Pajamas –the Benefits and Drawbacks
Dog 4-leg sweaters, jackets and pajamas are not the easiest fashion finds to
seek out because dog apparel companies don’t often make
dog sweaters and dog
jackets with 4 legs. The only common piece of dog gear to have 4 legs is
pajamas. However, 4-legged pieces of dog clothing can be found at special
retailers both on and off-line.
Two-legged sweaters, coats, jackets and activewear are especially common in the
world of dog apparel. Most stores carry apparel with 2 legs for dogs because
they make it easy for owners to put on and for dogs to move around. Moreover,
doggie garments with 2 legs rather than 4 are less restrictive and allow dogs a
full range of motion. But, perhaps the greatest reason why you don’t see many
dogs sporting a 4-pronged approach to the daytime clothing is the bathroom
factor. Having a dog vest or 2-legged outfit greatly simplifies things for both dog
and owner, and allows your pet to do its business without beckoning for help
every time. Although 4-legged outfits look especially cute, they are a little
Four legs are most prevalent in pajamas because PJs traditionally cover most of
the body and are designed for both warmth and comfort. Since dogs don’t move
around that much at night, having all four legs clothed will not really affect
them much unless a midnight bathroom break is required.
Therefore, likely the biggest consideration between choosing
dog gear with 4
legs versus 2 is the bathroom factor. Otherwise they are great departure from
the traditional dog clothing.
