Dog clothing helps us keep our pets comfortably warm by covering them up with shirts and coats, and let us make them adorable with cool doggy fashion pieces. Over the years, though, chihuahua clothes and other dog clothing has become increasingly expensive, and today, I run into dog owners all over the place who are looking for cheap dog clothes so they can still dress up their beloved pets but without spending a small fortune.
These less expensive dog clothes are typically the same as any other pet clothes: their colors, styles, and the sizes you’ll find them in are all comparable with what you’ll find in their higher priced relatives. But what can differ is the build quality of these cheap dog clothes: definitely not always, but often I have noticed they are made with thinner materials and with lower quality stitching that comes undone a lot easier.
Of course, they’re not all like this. There still are some good companies making high quality dog clothes on the cheap, today. Some of the best sweaters and shirts I have for my chihuahuas are cheap dog clothes I found along way in my search: sometimes just at the pet store, other times at the local flea market and at second hand stores, and even online through eBay, Craigslist, and Amazon. You can dress up your dog in adorable, fashionable clothes without spending a small fortune.
For those searching for cheap dog clothes at the local pet stores, I would advise you to inspect them carefully before spending your money on them. Check the material to make sure it’s thick enough to withstand the wear and tear a dog is sure to put on them, inspect the stitching and see if you think it is done well enough to keep the garment held together for more than just a couple of wears, and be sure to check the type of material the clothing is made from to be sure that you can wash it without it shrinking up into a little raisin (has happened to me a few times!)
If you keep this in mind when out shopping for cheap dog clothes, you’re very likely to come across some great finds! Good luck!
