Bichon Frise Clothing  -  Shopping for Shirts

Clothes for your Bichon Frise, fun and practical, or just plain silly

Before my Bichon Frise Pierre came into my life, I thought dressing any dog in clothes was strange, silly and even a tad bit cruel. Why would anyone try to turn a dog into a human child by dressing it up? I should not have been so quick to judge. It wouldn't be too far off in the future before I found myself purchasing those little dog shirts I'd thought were so strange and silly. I would be carefully dressing my Bichon Frise, and I certainly wouldn't feel like I was being cruel, quite the opposite in fact.

Why I dress my Bichon Frise

I live in Michigan, and the winters here are typically long, cold and snowy. The first winter I had my Bichon Frise, I noticed he would be shivering when he came in from outside. After all even though he was covered in thick fluffy fur, he did only weigh ten pounds. I started to rethink the subject of dogs and clothing. I concluded, why not try a shirt or warm coat for my Bichon. What could it hurt? I went to Amazon and ordered him a sweatshirt. If you haven't been over to Amazon's pet department, you should take a peek sometime. They have the largest selection and the best prices I've seen any where. I have purchased clothing at a couple of the big box pet stores recently as an impulse buy, and the fit, price and all around quality of the shirts has been horrible compared to the things I've bought from Amazon. I don't recommend the big pet chain store clothing, it's more expensive and dismal in quality. I won't buy Bichon Frise clothing from them any more.

Option and choices for Bichon Frise clothing

Once I took the plunge and ordered that first shirt for my pup, it was obvious he actually enjoyed wearing clothing. He would get excited when he saw me holding the shirt. My Bichon would go so far as to actually trot over to me and wait expectantly for me to put it on him. He has never once tried to wiggle out, chew or otherwise show displeasure at wearing clothing. Quite the opposite really. I have discovered and purchased may more items of apparel for my Bichon Frise since that first shirt. Pajamas, overalls, tank tops and sweats have found their way from Amazon to our door. Go ahead, buy your Bichon Frise a shirt or two. You may be surprised to discover, yes he looks adorable, but he also stays warm, comfy and cozy. It's a good thing for you both.
